Announcing the #CheddarBay College Bowl project.

Good news, I think.  For our Cheddars who are already missing their college football action, for friends who wished they’d jumped in on Cheddar,,, here’s a chance to get some. $20 $22 a man, winner take all, pick the college bowl games with five ‘pick-of-the-weeks.’ NEW: We’re using a new piece of software that should make everyone’s life easier in terms...

Auburn over Mizzou.

[DON’T POST YOUR CHEDDAR PICKS IN THIS THREAD.  DO IT HERE.] When I got over 700 words on this week’s Cheddar Bay essay I decided just to do a full-on post for it. 3.   Essay – ***Auburn -2 vs. Mizzou (Atlanta) I’m looking forward to this game because it’s rare when I’ve really had a chance to watch both...

Who’s #2?

Let’s deal with this subject before it gets done to death through over-saturation by the end of the week and with the knowledge that it has a good chance to be moot1 by this time next week: Does undefeated Ohio State have a better claim to the BCS Championship game than the one-loss SEC Champion (for the sake of this...

#CheddarBay Week 14: Iron Bowl.

Weekly lines linked here. All-play point spread:  Alabama -10.5 at Auburn; 330pm Saturday on CBS. We’ve been looking forward to this for at least a month. Auburn-Alabama at Auburn. #1 vs. #4. Gus Malzahn’s offense vs. Kirby Smart’s defense. Or maybe more interesting, Ellis Johnson’s defense vs. the Saban/Nussmeier offense. (Actually that’s quite a bit less interesting but you never...

Toledo loses game, dollars for the cure.

Did anyone find it beyond strange that the Toledo Rockets trotted out their pink breast cancer uniforms last night?  That’s 21 days past Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the ostensible reason for the wretched excess of form over substance that the uniform game has turned into.  The shpiel here was that the game jerseys would be auctioned off and something winds...

#CheddarBay Week 13: Brady +2.5 vs. Manning.

Links to this weeks lines here. All-play:  Broncos -2.5 at Pats; Sunday 8:30. . Alternate title: CB#13, The Salty Edition. If this feeling seems familiar that’s because it is.  I don’t mean in a landmark devastating “Drive/Fumble/RR88” way.  I mean in an “it happens three times a year to Cleveland fans, that moment when you snap back into the reality...

Browns over Bengals today.

This was going to be a simple comment inside the Cheddar thread and it morphed into a mini-post.  Here’s what I’m looking at in today’s Browns/Bengals game. I am trying very hard not to be influenced by my fandom nor current 32-8 Cheddar lean to the Browns on this pick.  The second is easy since the public is 63% with...
