Wk 16, Lions +5 at Giants, 1pm Sun.

I don’t like to be in the habit of shouting out on the play of a particular player because some weeks I’ll forget or be rushing and then I’ll miss a righteous shout-out and feelings might be hurt.  Also the pernicious site proprietor jinx is real.  That being said… Nope.  That jinx thing IS real so let me just say...

Wk 14: Wisc -2.5 vs PSU.

Want all to know there was spirited debate on this week’s weekly game. Also looked were the Pac12 with it’s winner likely into the BCS; Bedlam, natural rivalry game that is also an old-school championship game; and even Idaho’s final BCS game at Kibbe got notice. Ultimately, we went with the B1G as it should be a good game and...

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

Wk 10; Broncos at Raiders, SNF, PK

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...

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.)        ...
