All you have to do is bet on Miss State tomorrow and take the points against the over rated Alabama Defense.

I'm even going as far to say as Miss St will pull out the upset. If they don't, it will we darn close.

Thus far, the only common opponent is TENN. State beat the Vols by 10 in Starkville. Bama beat the Vols by 31 in Knoxville. The 21-point difference, plus the 3 point home field advantage is what's figuring into the spread.

If I were a gambler, I would not touch this game, even with a 23-24 point spread. Bama allows about 8 points per game, put up a few of their own and held an explosive TENN team to 13. Miss. State could hang with them for 3 or 3 1/2 quarters, or it could be a blowout. Saban will not let his team look past this game toward LSU next week.

While this is true (and impressive), it does not tell the full story. Alabama really hasn’t played any decent teams this year. It’s easy to hold your opponents to low scores when you’re playing nobodies. The only ranked team they’ve beaten was a Michigan who was number 8 at the time. They’ve had the easiest schedule than any top ranked team, yet the SEC-bias BCS rankings continues to keep them at number 1.

Meanwhile, K-State destroyed yet another ranked team today scoring 50+ points for the 5th time this year. If Florida loses their game (which they are as I’m typing this) then K-State moves up to #2. If Bama loses tonight (which I think is highly possible), they move up to #1.

I've put $200 on Miss St. Easy money.

Oh, I still like my chances. I got 23 points. MS was moving the ball the first couple of drives. Can't seem to do much now.

Their defense has settled down.

I'm not sure I understand that clock managment at the end of halftime. It seems to me like they would have tried to put themselves at least in FG position.

Just drove the ball down the field 96 yards and throws an INT in the end zone. Unbelievable!

Alabama cant be stopped. The interception by Russell in the endzone just took the wind outta the dawgs. Very limited running space for miss state by the tide is forcing small gains.

Bamas now turning turning up the running game to wear down the dawg defense. Very nice sack on the tide qb a second ago. So pressures still there.

31-0 now, but I still don't think Bama is as good as eveybody thinks. MSU just shot themselves in the foot tonight with sloppy play:

1.) Missed FG
2.) 30 yards in penalties on Bama's 2nd TD drive
3.) INT in end zone
4.) Punt that hit the MSU guy in the back

Edited to add: Holy $hit! Just as soon as I typed this, MSU fumbles the kick off. Bama possession. Just proves my point. Bama not that good, MSU just playing sloppy.

Maybe Alabama is so good they make whoever they play look bad. That would include K State should they meet in the Championship.

Take your meds and go to bed, Brick. K-State would beat Bama if the two were to meet. Wildcats have a pretty good defense themselves and a much better offense.

Total utter-f***ing delusion brought on by blind allegiance to a weak team from an even weaker conference. Talk about not playing anyone.

You heard it here first. Notre Dame jumps to #2 in the polls. Alabama vs. Notre Dame for the title. K-State to the Cotton Bowl. Dallas is close, maybe a road trip on New Year's Day?

K-State could reasonably win their last 4 games and finish 12-0 (Tech was their last big hurdle). Will that get them into the title game? IDK. But there is a possibility it could be Bama and K-State for the national championship...assuming Bama can get by LSU first.

I won $100 on the K-State game, so I am only down $120.

Are you smoking medical marijuana? Surely you aren't really that much of a dumba$$. Ok, maybe you are.

K-State has beaten 3 ranked teams (2 on the road and one at home). They'll soon beat a fourth ranked team (Texas if they stay ranked). They've scored 50+ points 5 times this year.

And why would ND jump KSU in the polls? Because they beat Oklahoma? So what? K-State beat Oklahoma too.

I believe K-State should be #2 as well.I would love to see Oregon and K State in National Championship but I don't think anyone is beating Alabama.I don't want a repeat of last years game that I boycott because I felt Ok St should have been there. I do have to give Alabama credit as they actually have some offense this year,last years team [besides Richardson] was horrible offensively.

Kansass State 24 - @ Oklahoma 19
Notre Dame 30 - @ Oklahoma 13

That was easy (but not EASY MONEY! or FREE MONEY! - see the vintagetoppsguy gambler for yours). Next question.

Hey Dave

I don't follow college ball all that close.

Gambling on sports is not my thing, its just to unpredictable. I prefer to dollar cost average into a solid fund. Slow and steady wins the race.

If you are gambling away disposable income I guess thats your choice on how you want to spend your money.

I know too many people who got in way over their heads losing money they couldn't afford to lose because they to thought they were "Experts" and that it was "Easy Money" or "Free Money"

Gambling is like a Drug and it can become very addicting.

Have fun and enjoy, but be careful you don't get in over your head.

John

Lighten up, there is A LOT of people who think collecting sports cards is a great waste of money. Especially those who collect after 1970.

Mike, you make excuses for everything. You berate me for betting and losing, yet you lost money on the K-State / WVU game.

I'm sure you'll make another excuse though. Hey, how about this one..."Show me where I bet any money?"

Well, when you said you were "laying the points", it sort of implies you were betting money.

Beauty of a message board: Nothing is implied. It's all typed out in plain English. But some neanderthals still can't comprehend.

I haven't wagered money on an athletic contest in over 30 years. I have made friendly wagers (no money involved) using lines and over/under several times. When I lose it costs me $0.00, unlike what it apparently costs you.

As for WVU, I told you if I lost, I'd post in my sigline that fact. I did. What do you do? Name call, like any other 12-year old pre-pubescent, immature child. "I'm rubber, you're glue, bounce off me, stick to you."

Again, please keep typing. This is hilarious.

Mike,

I'm acting like a 12 year old immature child? You're the one that started the name calling. You called me "stupid" and a "f*cking idiot" in the GB vs. Seattle thread because I didn't agree with your opinion.

A few months ago, I made a joke about you in another thread. I was just kidding and it was obviously meant to be a joke (I even used smiley faces). I expected you to come back at me with another joke, but you didn't say anything. I sent you a PM and asked if you were offended by the joke and, if so, I would edit my post. You asked me to edit it and I did. I also apologized to you in the same thread.

Here's the difference between me and you. I apologized when my joke didn't go over. I didn't want to offend you. However, you call me names and don't have the sack to apologize to me because you don't think you did anything wrong.

You continue to prove yourself a D!CK HEAD over and over on these boards. You ran Dan off by your comments to him about selling his '58 Topps set and you also prove to be a D!CK HEAD by berating the guy selling wood burnings.

BBO, the message board D!CK HEAD!

Dan the '58 set guy is a Marine. I think he can handle a question or two without a soft-bellied civilian coming to rescue him.

The wood-burning guy is an entreprenuer. I'm quite sure he can take a little heat in the kitchen (pun made & intended) without anyone defending him.

What is with the political correctness on this board? And coming from you! You call people names and berate their choice for grading. You pick word battles, then re-word them into things not quite exactly as they were originally said. You flat out misquote me, even down to inserting extra letters where I clearly put ***'s. Now you bad-mouth the 1959 set and defame Randy Stuckemeyer's name in the process. Did you ever tell him you thought it was an ugly set? And now you come searching for an apology? Strange brew, fella, very strange.

Get some cheese to go with your whine. But don't ever let your doctor take you off the testosterone regimen.

Yes, he is a Marine. All the more reason to show him the respect he's earned. Instead you belittled the guy for wanting to sell his '58 Topps set. Dan had some financial issues come up. I don't know what they were and they were none of my (or yours) business. And you say you think he can handle a question or two? It wasn't your place to question him. Again, D!CK HEAD move.

I don't know aything about the guy, but I'm pretty sure he's not an entreprenuer. My guess that he sells them on the side for fun, because he enjoys making them. Entreprenuer? You think the guy is making is mortgage payment selling wood burnings? Get real. Either way, it wasn't your place to say anything to him. But again, D!CK HEAD move.

You've proven yourself to be a D!CK HEAD over and over and then make excuses for your actions as you did above. Bill (LSU Tigers) was right about you all along. Either way, I'm done arguing with you. You're not worth it and I'm not going to stoop to your level. Keep up the insults, keep up the name calling - whatever makes you feel better about yourself.

Betcha can't do it. You can't do it. You can't ignore me. You'll always read my threads and you'll frequently respond to my postings because it just eats away at you. You'll continually dredge up old threads that you believe help you and hurt me. Hell, you did just that, 9 minutes after posting in this thread. Confirming that you're a hypocrite and a liar. Those aren't "names" they're formal salutations. And you will never come up with a different name to call me because that's what's on your mind: homosexual, perverted innuendo. It was evidenced in your so-called "joke" that fell flat. It is evidenced in the name you love to type on your keyboard. Tell it to your civil partner and significant other.

Hey, royalbrett. What's up? How are things up there in Detroit? How are those Tigers doing?

BTW, I saw this article on-line the other day. Why would the Detroit Police Department warn visitors not to come to their city because it's too dangerous?

http://detroit.cbslocal.com/2012/10/06/e...e-for-visitors/

Gee, Detroit sounds like a place I don't think I want to visit.

Lol!

Ok, I'll make up for it. Take LSU this weekend and the points. But bet early. The line right now is Bama -10. That line will change (decrease) as more smart folks load up on the Tigers. It's time to cash in the 401k.

Well, it's a good thing I don't live in Detroit.

Out of curiosity, why the big cheer for the team from Manhattan? Also, be careful about your enthusiasm. Remember 1998.

Vintage,

Regarding the link about Detroit - if you can't tell the difference between a news article based on a real event and a propaganda pamphlet, ask someone with more intelligence to review it first before you post. It may save you from looking like a clown.

STMF,

This isn’t some obscure article that I had to scour the internet to find. It was on all the news outlets last week including MSN and Fox News. That particular article was from Detroit’s own CBS news station. The article says that Detroit’s “homicide rate is the highest in the country” and “there’s 1,000 fewer police officers today than there was 10 years ago, yet the homicide rate is higher.” All the article is saying is that Detroit police are warning people that they are too short-staffed to protect everybody. Obviously you disagree with those facts, so what part of that do you think is propaganda?

I've never had any beef with you and I don't know why you're trying to insult me by telling me to ask someone with more intelligence to review it first and calling me a clown? Did I do somethng to offend you that I'm unaware of? Do you really want a fight? With your insults, it sure sounds like you're trying to pick one.

Vintage,

The Detroit bit of being the murder capital is tired and old. Its a dangerous city in the poor neighborhoods (unfortunately there are too many) - just like in Los Angeles, New Orleans, Philly, Chicago, ...

I didn't see any connection between who is more capable of picking the winner of college football games and the City of Detroit police department staffing levels. My post was to kill the anti-Detroit portion of the thread. Hopefully, I was successful.

Not that I pay attention to such stats but I find it hard to believe Detroit has a higher murder rate than Chicago. BTW my wife and myself drove through Detroit on our way to Canada without incident.

There was no connection. The thread went OT for a minute. Royalbrett said something to bust my chops, I said something (about Detroit) to bust his chops. It wasn't a big deal. Just as soon as the issue came up, it died. Next time, please don't insult my intelligence or call me names to make your point. I'm asking nicely.

It was a bit of hyperbole by the police because there is talk about wage cuts for the force to help with a balanced budget. Not saying Detroit does not have plenty of issues, but this one is trumped up a bit for personal agendas. The Burbs are fantastic however.

Ann Arbor was great for the time and purpose I was there. Hated the winters, but for a college town a few decades ago, it was something special.

Ypsilanti, not so much. Detroit, I hardly ever visited.

Ooooooh! That line sure is moving heavily in one direction. According to the quote above, you better hurry. According to D!CKHEAD-DAVE, just disregard how his last advice turned out for you and your kid's college fund.

Latest line:
Alabama Crimson Tide -9½ at LSU Tigers
Nov. 3 Saturday 8:00 pm EDT.

I'm sure glad I don't gamble and lose money to a system skewed toward benefitting the book makers. I'd rather spend it on cards I like.

Ann Arbor is a neat town. I lived outside Detroit for a couple of years, Waterford and Holly. Was really nice except for the winters, I never shoveled and plowed so much snow in my life.I traveled into and around Detroit many times and never had any trouble, and yes many times at night.

Conversely, I've traveled into and around Chicago many times and the result not nearly so good. Same for Kansas City.

Won the bet, but was also hoping to win the game outright. Miles’ trickery cost them the game.

Congrats to my KSU Wildcats beating OSU 44-30. It is the 4th time this year we’ve beaten a ranked opponent. Who else can say that?

1. Bama
2. Kansas State
3. Oregon
4. Notre Dame
5. Georgia

I think Oregon will jump ND after their impressive offensive performance against USC and the fact that ND came very close to getting beat by Pitt.

I think Oregon will jump K State before the end of the season. Thats a shame. How about ND playing Bama and Oregon and K State matching up then the winners meet for the Championship. Guess we'll have to wait.

As a K-State fan, I would much rather play ND for the National Championship. I have to admit, I really don't know if we could beat Oregon. ND on the other hand? No problem.

I hope Oregon loses one of their two remaining games and yes, Go Irish!

ND vs. Bama would make the vast majority of the viewing public and TV suits happy. Can you imagine the month-long lead up to the tradition-rich powerhouses of defensive juggernauts brought by the current version of the Crimson Tide & Fighting Irish? Few (if any) fan bases are as passionate, knowledgable and travel-ready in large numbers as Alabama and Notre Dame.

What a ratings disaster and college football travesty the other matchup would have been! Thank goodness for Baylor Bears and Stanford Cardinal. Defense wins championships. Looks as if that will play out again this year.

Congrats to LSU for holding off Arkansas in the Battle for the Boot. Now if Auburn will just upset Alabama and Georgia Tech will get revenge on Georgia, we can really have some chaos in the BCS. LSU got in with two losses in 2007 and won it all. A flickering hope remains for Bayou Bengal fan. Who knows, maybe Oregon or Kansas State can back into the championship picture, assuming they can take care of Oregon State and Texas?

Just goes to show, Yogi Berra was right when he said, "It ain't over 'til it's over."

Good lord - did I see another Royals fan on this board.

There's only 5 or 6 of us in the card collecting community. Wonder where the other 3 are.

I used to be. Still somewhat, for all pro sports are worth in this day and time. Went to a couple of games in old Municipal Stadium back when the Royals came into existence, after the A's left. The two things I remember about that was, the Royals won and Killebrew launched one out of the stadium into the parking lot...in batting practice. That was awesome.

I went to a couple of games in Kaufman Stadium right after it was built, don't remember a whole lot about it other than one of the games was against the Red Sox and I got to see Yaz play. Now during the time I lived in Texas I did get to see George Brett play in his rookie year against the Rangers. He got in a fight, or in baseball, a tussle with somebody, can't remember who it was probably Billy Martin, I think he was managing the Rangers then. Neat stuff.

SEC rolls when the lights are on. Depending upon USC-ND outcome, SEC will be either 1-2-3 or 2-3-4 when the polls come out. LSU & A&M should probably be 4-5 and we can just dismiss the rest of the field. The National Championship is next Saturday at 4:00 pm in the Georgia Dome.

A friend of mine from Nebraska used to go see the Royals and Yankees play in KC when Sweet Lou Piniella played left field for the Bronx Bombers. The left field bleacher crowd would rag on Lou the entire game. When Lou had had enough one time, he turned to the crowd, grabbed his crotch and yelled, [well, I'm not going to say what he yelled, you can use your imagination].

Top six SEC teams go 6-0 this week. BCS top 10 will have six SEC teams when rankings come out tomorrow night. I think ND should have to beat all six to prove themselves. Could they beat any of the six?

I don't think there's any denying that the SEC is head and shoulders above of every other conference.

Could ND beat any of the six?

Of course anything can happen on any given night, but I'd say, NO

I hope Te'o wins the Heisman, and I believe he will, but I don't want ND to win the NC. One bit of trivia that may come up if Alabama beats Georgia: Bear Bryant never beat Notre Dame in four tries. Overall, Alabama is 1-5 against the Fighting Irish, all between 1973 and 1987.

Just my opinion but I think it will be a good battle for the SEC championship. Georgia will not let Bama roll all over them. In the end I think Bama will pull it out.

As far as the National Championship goes I think Bama will take apart ND. I just see it happening though ND has had one heck of a year! And I agree Te'o for Heisman but Johnny Football at aggieland has made quite an impression the last two games.

Georgia may hang with Bama for a couple quarters, but after halftime, that Bama "D" (gives up less than 240 yards per game total!) shuts down Mr. Murray.

West Coast Bias alert in USA Today poll: Both UCLA and Oregon State lose at home and neither team drops even one spot from their place in the prior week's poll. I call B.S. on that.

Texas A&M would be a 3.5-point pick over Notre Dame if they were to play, according to the Bovada sports book.
A&M was one of five Southeastern Conference schools who would be favored over the Irish.
Alabama would be a 9.5-point pick.
Georgia and LSU would be 3-point favorites, and Florida just a 1.5-point pick.
Notre Dame would be a 3.5-point pick over South Carolina.

Imagine that: hypothetical odds. I'm surprised people can't bet on them. (I guess a few Aggies will try to. \:o )

Florida and LSU both beat A&M in College Station. Difficult to leave them out of the discussion. Then there is Georgia, who we'll find out in 72 more hours if they belong. Sure would make for a nice 8-team playoff. Five of the eight would be SEC teams.

You're asking the wrong guy. I love 'em both. I think Alabama will win the game, but Georgia could hang with them for a quarter or two. As with most games on this stage and at this level, it will probably come down to turnovers, penalties and ultimately momentum. The line of scrimmage will set the tone early and a big play or two could have an effect, but it will come down to TO, flags and MO.

All three of those should cover. Back in the day, wasn't there a "parlay" bet if you picked three games and won them all, you got a bonus? I never did it. I'd just pick what I thought was the one best college game on Saturday, then the best pro game on Sunday. Then Monday night football if I needed it.

I usually needed it.

That Nebraska game is the reason you should never gamble. I'm assuming it was a terrible game because I couldn't watched it.

Alabama had 350 rushing yards! WOW!

The SEC is forming and molding new Running Backs right now. For instance TJ Yeldon is a freshman as well as Todd Gurley. Both backs will continue to be a threat to any run defense.

As far as the game, Georgia held strong and in the end the Bama pulled it out. Notre Dame has some planning to do if they wanna play ball against this powerhouse team. I watched a few of the Championship gamess last night and by far the SEC game was the best, most lively crowd and even better bands....just sayin

...If you like pinball machine football on the collegiate level. I'll take the smash-mouth, defensive struggle I expect Alabama-Notre Dame to be. I hope it's 0-0 late in the fourth quarter and more medical carts have been on the field than referees.

If we couldn't make it into the National Championship, we definitely got the next best bowl game. No other bowl game (besides the National Championship) features 2 top 10 teams.

We had a lot of injuries late in the season. They finally caught up to us in the Baylor game, our only loss. Hopefully everybody is rested and healed and I'm looking forward to a good game.

I'm predicting a K-State win by 4 points.

And, Kelly goes for two after the first score. Always.

Oregon typically can't hold leads. Don't turn off this game too early. What? Oh, wait. Never mind.

15-10 Good game IMO.

I beleive in the refs letting them play, but a couple of the no calls have been kind of ridiculous.

Lights are still on, but is anyone at home? Dandy Don Meredith and the Fat Lady are warming up the vocal chords while it's still in the 3rd quarter. What an epic beatdown. Pretenders exposed, first by the Baptists from Waco, now by a bunch of Mallards at a track meet.

Speed kills, especially if you're used to riding a tractor on a wheat farm.

Still 5 minutes left in the 3rd quarter, but it's over. K-State isn't designed to play from behind. They can't keep up with a fast tempo game. That's how Baylor beat them.

Now we can focus on some real college football, tonight and Monday, when the class of the SEC play. For the record, I don't like Bob Stoops, but I hope Johnny Manziel gets his clock cleaned. Either way, it's another big year for the SEC. Again and again and again and again and again and again and again.

Another over-rated Big 12 team falls, and falls hard to Mr. Football. Downside is the country has to put up with all the Texas A&M "whoop" for a while.

SEC teams have won the last five Cotton Bowls, all against Big 12 teams, and nine out of 10. That included Texas A&M's loss to LSU only two years ago. SEC continues to prove they have the strongest football conference in the land.

All that's left is to see if the Irish can complete their resurrection to the college football apex by overcoming defending national champion, the Alabama Crimson Tide.

SEC racks up another bowl victory as Ole Miss mauls Pitt. Except for LSU and Florida who both had little to prove and play for in the post season, only Mississippi State was outmanned during the bowls. Not bad when you send 9 teams to the post season.

The only one left that matters comes in less than 48 hours. Do you hear the herd coming? It's the sound of 22 Crimson Tide elephants stampeding into Miami. The way to beat Bama during the Saban era is to jump on them quickly (Utah a couple years ago, A&M this year). If Notre Dame doesn't rack up a couple of quick scores and match Alabama in a smash-mouth affair, I might get to go to bed early on Monday.

If Bama loses will it also be because they have nothing further to prove or would this SEC loss be legitimate?

Oh, Alabama has plenty to prove and Saban wants this game in a big, big way. First of all, Alabama (fans, players, alumni, entire state) dislike Notre Dame and want to pummel them into submission. Secondly, Saban's legacy rests on the outcome of this game. Not even The Bear won 3 championships in 4 years (he did win 3 in 6 years from 1961-1966), back when everybody and his mother handed out "championships." Thirdly, if Notre Dame wins, they will have climbed back on top, but it remains to be seen if they can stay there. Face it, ND has disappointed their fans for over 20 years and for many years recently have just plain sucked at football.

This is a watershed game for both schools and both have plenty to play for. Unfortunately, many games with this level of hype rarely live up to expectations. We'll find out if this one does in about a day and a half.

It's a classic "irresistable force" (Bama's O-Line and running game) vs. an "immoveable object" (Irish defense, which is credible). If Alabama had the Bama defense from last year, there would be no reason to play the game because ND's putrid offense couldn't cross the 50-yard line either (cf. LSU).

I'm afraid that's just what's going to happen.
I don't think it's going to be a game in the 4th quarter. I hope I'm wrong. (which more often than not is usually the case)
