The “sissification” of the NFL! As for myself, I liked the league the way it was – brutal. Fans love the hard hits.

The “black and blue” division is becoming the “scrape your knees” division. The refs just won’t stand for the hard hits any longer. I think they should take off the stripes and wear pink dresses and have pink flags instead of white ones.

Maybe have the QB wear high heels, and if a defender gets within 10 feet of him or her it’s a 15-yarder. Take me back, I’m begging you.

I managed to surpass the .500 mark again last week and will try to improve upon it with what looks like a very tough card.

Wednesday, Sept. 19

Kent State +3 at Buffalo: On ESPN U. This game is loaded with some good trends, the best being the Golden Flashes have gone 0-10 ATS when playing away off a SU/ATS loss vs. an opponent coming off a straight up win. Kent lost 47-14 last week to Kentucky, while the Bulls beat Morgan State 56-34. BUFFALO.

Thursday, Sept. 20


Giants -1½ at Panthers: The G-men came back from what looked like a horrible home loss, which would have put them 0-2, pulling the game out 41-34. That win may propel them in their first roadie of the year. Looking back they have gone 4-0 ATS in their first of back-to-back away games. GIANTS.


BYU +7 at Boise St.: There is a very good trend that I like in this game with the Broncos going 7-0 ATS in second of back-to-back home games on the blue carpet. Things turn ugly for the Cougars. BOISE ST.

Friday, Sept. 21

Baylor -8 at UL-Monroe: Another ESPN U special. The Warhawks from the Sun Belt have done little wrong this season beating Arkansas 34-31 as a 30-point road dog and then taking Auburn to overtime before losing 31-28 as a 16½ point dog. After that tough result, the tank may be a little empty plus the fact the Bears have gone 9-0 ATS against non-conference foes when favored by 10 points or less. BAYLOR. (This spread could come down.)

Saturday, Sept. 22

Temple +9 at Penn St.: There are some big point spreads this week that I am trying to stay away from. In this game the Lions just don’t score, but can play some “D.” Let’s look for a total. UNDER.

Arizona +24 at Oregon: The 3-0 Wildcats travel to Eugene looking for their first win since 2007. They may not get it, but their defense is better than the porous unit Oregon has. ARIZONA.

Oregon St. +11 at UCLA: Must stick with the 3-0 SU & ATS Bruins who handled the Beavers easily in Corvallis last year, 27-19. UCLA looks to be on a mission. UCLA.

LSU -18 at Auburn: LSU dismantled War Eagle last year in Baton Rouge 45-10. Trying to keep pace with the Crimson Tide, we won’t see any let up here. LSU.

Michigan +6½ at Notre Dame: The Irish pull off the state of Michigan sweep. No letdown off the big win last week in East Lansing as the Irish defense will assert themselves again. NOTRE DAME.

Have a great weekend and don’t forget those 10-team parlay cards!
