#CheddarBay Week 15, all the B1G: OSU/Sparty.

_____ Late lines: UCF -10.5 at SMU; Browns +11 at Pats; Falcons +3.5 at Packers. Weekly lines linked here. All-play:  Ohio State -5 vs. Michigan State at Lucas Field, Indy; 8:15 PM Saturday on Fox. _____ The Council of Elders evaluated the great games this weekend. The obvious: Auburn/Mizzou, Niners/Seahawks; the also pretty-darn-good: Colts/Bengals, Texas/Baylor, BGSU/NIU, OkST/Oklahoma. But ultimately the ultimate...

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 moot 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...

#CheddarBay Week 12: Browns at Bengals.

Click for weekly lines. Allplay:  Browns +5.5 at Bengals, 1pm Sunday, CBS. Of course the All Play is Browns-Bengals this week.  Lookit.  I know some of you don’t see Browns-Bengals as game of the week and a lot of you don’t want to be forced to bet on or against your rooting team.  I hear you.  BUT.  This really is...

CB#11, Bama over LSU.

My CheddarBay essay is bit more graphical than DISQUS likes so posting here. BGSU (win) Oregon (loss) ***@Bama -11.5 LSU “God has made us for civilizing the world.  Woe and death to all who resist my will.” –Nick Saban Haha, just kidding that was Kaiser Wilhelm II.  But we are under a 4 TD spread at Tuscaloosa, thus Bama covers....

Fozzy and Chris.

Friend of the site –and notable UT alumnus– rodofdisaster was kind enough to write up a piece on recent Browns RB signing, Fozzy Whittaker.  There’s more to his story than I knew.  Take it away, Rod. Nearly two years ago, Fozzy Whittaker lay on the field in agony having sustained the third knee injury of his collegiate career.  After tearing...

#CheddarBay Week 11: Oregon at Stanford on THURSDAY. Look alive.

Wednesday update All-play line is:  Oregon -10 at Stanford. Weekly point spreads are linked here. Posting early this week due to the Thursday night all play game, Oregon at Stanford.  We’ll use the usual Wednesday morning lines; I’ll update this post and the standings with the lines link tomorrow morning and I’ll tweet it as well.  (FYI, the line is Oregon...
