Okay, I'm impressed. Granted, the Ravens were pretty awful after halftime in the NFL 2013 curtain raiser last night. But it's also pretty clear that this Denver offense is going to be a nightmare for opposing defensive coordinators. Peyton Manning was spectacular with seven touchdown passes and let's just say he runs the fast break offense like he invented ... More

Split a pair of underdogs on Wednesday for a small profit, although watching the Marlins blow a three-run lead pretty late was not much fun. Good result on the free play as the Rockies dealt the Dodgers a rare loss. The weekend card is really starting to take shape. Nothing in college tonight or on the Friday pair, but Saturday looks loaded with a likely ... More

I want to make this clear. I could not manage a big league baseball team. For that matter, also not a minor league team, a college team or even a high school team. There's much more to running a team than just making out a lineup card and implementing strategy while the game is in progress. A manager has to handle a multitude of egos and personalities ... More

Jameis Winston put together one of the most amazing debuts I've ever seen on Monday night as Florida State demolished Pittsburgh. Fact is, I cannot recall one better. Famous Jameis had only two incomplete passes for the entire ... More

My Sunday call on Colorado State was dead wrong on every level. The Rams got very lucky on special teams with a pair of huge returns, and there was a brief moment where stealing the win and cover seemed possible. But the reality is that Colorado was the vastly superior team and should have won this game by about 4 TD's. Overall, I'm okay with my first ... More

Solid enough Saturday on the college gridiron, although that hardly makes me unique. I'm betting the results were strong for loads of players. That's generally the case when the upsets are few and far between, and this first big day of college action was ultra-chalky from that standpoint. Among the 30 FBS games on the board, only seven dogs won outright, ... More
