Wk 13: UM +6.5 at OSU, noon, Sat.

These are the games that all-play was invented for.   Went with the 1968 game because it’s one of my earliest childhood memories.  I probably have earlier memories but this sticks with me because even as a six year old watching on black and white at my grandparents’ place in Hilliard, I remember understanding the momentous significance of hanging 50...

Wk 11, Seahawks +7.5 at Pats – SNF.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please use the form to enter your picks as you make them.  As we’re all watching the standings movement closely, it’s helpful to know it’s an accurate picture.  More fun too.  This is particularly important at the top of the standings.  I’ve lately noticed that there have been some standings-impacting hits made mid-week that might not be entered...

Wk 10; Broncos at Raiders, SNF, PK

Updated:  we’re up with Sunday Night Football, pick-em game, Broncos at Raiders for the all-play.  The Toledo/Akron cheddar game line was set last night at Toledo -9 –> use that and not the current Tol -10,. Acknowledgments/atta-boys are due.  The second eleven point week ever was turned in by Chris P last week.  And CLEVTA is the first to acquire...

Pretty sure the tone of this was non-ironic.  Just fun. 117

Wk 9, Eagles +4 at Cowboys.

I just liked this shot of Franklin Field and whatever those UPenn buildings are in the background.  Eagles played there until 1970.  But since this game is in Dallas, I hopped down a rabbit hole to find a comparable old Cotton Bowl photo of the Eagles/Cowboys.  Did not find one. Did find these.  (Click to enlarge.)        ...

Alabama vs Arkansas 109

Wk 6, Bama -14 at Ark.

Re: my pick of the year. Welp. I hasten to point out that FHCF hit something like nine of his last ten essays last year, so don’t count Kanick out but dang. At least I have some good company down at my end of the standings and I wouldn’t count them out either. Anyhoos, you can thank me in the...

Wk 5, Louisville -2 at Clemson.

Short post today:  I (inadvertently) threw my car keys in the trash at work yesterday.  I shit you not.  Around 4am this morning, my boss drove me 30 minutes out of his way to get my spare then 30 minutes back so I could drive my car home.  Humanity. Loading…

Wk 4, Steelers -3.5 at Eagles Sunday at 415pm.

Took a stab at a video update this week. I’m sure I’ll try again and I’m sure they’ll improve! Skip to 1:20 for the meat of the Cheddar update. Link to ‘wk4’ page of master spreadsheet. And just to take the ‘check this page’ theme one step further and to emphasize the importance… it turns out I had graded the...
