SLICK’S PICKS-Post-Post Turkey Day
A Guest Blog By Fanspeak Contributing Writer Matt (aka Slick)
Bad Slick. Bad Slick. Bad Slick. I cant help that Bama couldnt put the game away when they had the chance. RIDICULOUS! should have been 42-7 at the half- GAME OVER… but mistakes came back to haunt them, and me. I knew at that point that the BUFFS were turning over too, and my Saturday was falling apart as quickly as it had started. I should have stuck to totals… but i told myself, “thats not what the people want…”
Good thing the REDWINGS beat COLUMBUS (is that a sign…Michigan/OhioST?…maybe?maybe?). Oh well, lets get back on track and put a smile on those faces..
So, here we go… no totals.
Take MARSHALL -10 V TULANE. did you seen the green wave perform last week? seriously? it was UGLY, with a capital, well, everything. The HERD in a stampede! Take em. Take em all day long. Huntington,WV will be a happy place tomorrow, and so will you.
Since we are on the GREEN kick, lets add one more for good measure. TAKE NORTH TEXAS +14 V KANSAS STATE. yes the MEAN GREEN. Look for lots of meanness. and a close score. Sure the cats will probably win and shouldnt they…but the mean green will come to play. North Texas always reminds me of Unnecessary Roughness – the movie. (Texas State Fighting Armadillos). Love that flick. and Love the MEAN GREAN tomorrow. take the 2 TDs.
Take DUKE (the football team) +7.5 V UNC. its college basketballs biggest rivalry, and in the spirit of the beginning of college basketball, lets jump on this game. the finals are always close, and with more than a TD on our side, we should be in good shape. expect a close game. UNC lost its title hopes last week to STATE, and DUKE actually has something to play for.
Finally, lets get crazy… real crazy. lets play a game. lets see how many points TCU can score. 50? 60? 70 maybe? TAKE TCU – 43.5 V NEW MEXICO. yes, you heard me… lay more than 6 TDs and watch the madness unfold. TCU will drop at least 55 on UNM, and allow only a couple FGs, at best. Should be plenty to cover the spread. I just wonder how you approach a game when you are favored by 43.5.
YEAH YEAH YEAH… and then there is MICHIGAN…this is my LAST CHANCE before bowl season, I KNOW. So, you say, what happened to MICHIGAN? the fix was in, right? unbelievable. even the fix wasnt good enough, and i was bitten again. but i made a committment to this team, and I am here for you Michigan. Vegas will pay for this. Michigan has dropped 7 straight games AGAINST THE SPREAD. How is that even possible. WAKE UP VEGAS! SERIOUSLY! WAKE UP! Not this time, not again. no one doesnt cover 8 straight times! and as you all know, and the documentation will prove it, im riding this train to the last stop…so……………………………… TAKE MICHIGAN… +17. TAKE IT ALL DAY.
