The sum of what I’ve learned and know for sure after this season is that on a Football Field one can throw the football, and it’s O.K. to throw a flag....... but it’s not O.K. to throw a shoe. 8) 8) 8)

Now that’s good stuff...... loved the scenes with the Auburn guy and the Southern Cal call!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:


I suppose there was something magical and mystical about the “20’s” last week....... How else could one possible explain how a very shaky Southern Cal team comes back from 20 down in the 4th to beat UCLA and how somebody(s) in Auburn, Alabama decides to pay a guy 20+ million dollars NOT TO COACH THEIR TEAM. (btw, I picked UCLA) :shock: :shock:

Now here's an interesting bit ...

SMU @ UTSA --- Cancelled

I put every scheduled game in the Picks List, yet as you can see, this game isn't there.

So, they cancelled a game that wasn't even scheduled.

LoL!!

Yeah, usually I'm on that ...

It just wasn't listed with the other games.

I suppose they wanted to be a specialty Post-Post season game.
