  1. Gambling Ref in the NBA

    Would think college football coaches are in a great position to get away with this kind of gambling especially when playing one of their rent a win games. Who's going to accuse a coach of gambling when he either subs early or decides to give his first team more experience.
  2. Gambling Ref in the NBA

    Not how much the winner won by, but the total amount of points scored in a game by both teams. Ref could influence that wager without having to take sides in a game. Possibly calling ticky tack fouls at the end of the game vs. letting the clock run out in those last 20 seconds or so.
  3. I'm outta here. I'm done with FF.

    I retired from competitive FF to become a FF consultant.

    Wasn't the gambling only involved in the over/under wagers? That wouldn't make it ok, but much easier to handle .
  5. Can Les Miles shut up now?

    Nice to see Coach Miles interviewed before Pete Carroll on ESPN's new Football show. Thought he handled the question about his comments about USC and the Pac 10 pretty nicely. My guess is that when Pete Caroll appears he'll welcome the opportunity to address the Miles comments versus having to address questions regarding Reggie Bush. Asked Monday about his recent comments regarding the Southern California football team and the Pac-10 Conference, Miles said they were more about how much respect he has for the Southeastern Conference than a slap at the Trojans. “Hey, this is a bad news time,” said Miles, a guest on ESPN’s “College Football Live.” “That’s all there could be. I can only tell you that I have great respect for the Pac-10 Conference as a whole. I can tell you USC has been a great team — no matter what anybody says — for years and certainly we would love to be in the national championship game.” "I can tell you it was more of a pride in the SEC and understanding we play a pretty competitive schedule,” he told ESPN’s Rece Davis. “We finish our season with a championship game. The championship game certainly throws another great opponent at a neutral site at the end of the season and that makes the hurdle in the SEC even a little higher.” Miles was asked if had talked to USC coach Pete Carroll about his comments. “I would only hope that Pete Carroll is not concerned with any of this conversation,” he said. “It’s nothing but speculative and so far away from a season’s end and so close to a beginning to a very important schedule for both he and I.” Miles also said that the arrival of former Tigers coach Nick Saban at Alabama hasn’t impacted his job in Tigertown. “It doesn’t seem to have impacted it a lick,” he said. “I can only tell you we’ll look forward (to playing) the team that he’ll coach. “Never in my coaching career, whether in Dallas or at Oklahoma State or at Michigan have I just really got along with those teams that were in red.” http://www.2theadvocate.com/sports/8677912.html
  6. Top 25 College Football Stadiums

    Never been to a game at Texas A&M, but from watching games on TV it seems like the press box is looking straight down on the field. Must be a little scary for those sitting up in the nose bleed section?

  8. Wolf Pack will challenge for the Atlantic Division

    This is what makes preseason great. Even the Wolfpack fans are talking trash.

    One part of the equation the odds makers probably took into consideration is that if the final participant of the BCS NC game comes down to two or three teams and one of them is the Irish chances are Notre Dame will get the spot over the other two teams. In short, the Irish win all tie-breakers.

    To some degree you're right, however these are pretty much opening lines so they don't reflect the $$$ that much yet. Notre Dame just might be better than most people think. They have finally started getting some top notch recruiting classes again.

    Falls back to plus 2 with a double and a triple. That a boy John.

    Granted it's only the first day, but nice to see Daly took the lead with his eagle to go 5 under after 11. Short lived since he doubled the 12th to fall back to -3.
