Don’t get old!
Last Monday this handicapper and bettor sat down at my trusty computer with one thing in my forgetful mind – give out Auburn to beat Alabama.
What happened is one of those senior moments, as my mind told me every time I tried to beat Bama I lost. That thought played a dirty trick on not only myself, but also my faithful readers.
Also, my surge teams forgot to keep surging as we went 0-4 with our plays last week but 2-0 in our 2 for Tuesday plays.
I have been getting a lot of emails asking me how my high school alma mater, Steubenville Big Red, is doing in football. They are coached by the legendary Ohio High School Hall of Fame coach and my friend Reno Saccoccia.
Reno has led this year’s team to a 14-0 record and they play this week for the Ohio Division IV State Championship vs. a team called Clinton-Massie.
The game will be at noon PT in Canton. All we can say is Go Red!
This is Championship Week in college football with some huge games. We will try to get back on the winning end barring a brain freeze or one of those senior moments.
It all starts this Friday, Dec. 1. Where did the season go?

Georgia +3 vs. Auburn: These two met on Nov. 11 in Auburn in what was a must win game for the Tigers. They crushed the Bulldogs, 40-17, when getting 3 points at home. Now they are a -3 point favorite on a neutral site. Looking back, Auburn lost to Clemson in Game 2 of the season at Clemson, 14-6 – a game they could have won. They lost at Baton Rouge to a very good LSU team, 27-23, another game they could have won.
My astute brother Tom and my all-knowing dog Dino said Auburn is the best team in the country and they have made me a believer. Yes, Georgia is in big time revenge mood but no more senior moments here. War Eagle! AUBURN
