Last week: 5-3 (+22.9*)
Last 3 weeks: 21-10-1 (+86.4*)

Thursday:
7* Marshall +13 (bought half-point)
This number looks high. I guess Miami could blow them out, but I'm gonna bet Marshall keeps it under the number. Marshall 5-0 ATS in last 5 meetings with Miami.

Saturday:
10* Tennessee -23
Maybe I'm beating a dead horse, but I'm still going against MSU until the linesman catches up with them. Tennessee will want to work out the kinks in their offense, and will tee off against a defense that has given up and resorted to finger-pointing last week against Bama. No way do I see State in this game. Vols could win by 40.

10* Houston -10
Houston has blown away most bad teams they've faced. Army doesn't have the cadets to slow down Houston's high-powered offense. Cougars win by 3 TDs.

More later.

The Marshall game really pissed me off! My inner feeling was tugging at me: take Miami, give the points, it'll be a blowout! Yet, I allowed myself to be swayed by the picks of a handful of cappers I respect, who all seemed to be on Marshall. It seemed so reasonable. I've learned this lesson a thousand times, but it's so hard to actually accomplish: go with your own feeling, give it a greater priority than external influences and you'll win most of the time.

So, now I'm trying to make sure I feel absolutely right about each play, without allowing myself to be totally swayed by another capper's conclusion or by some intelligent write-up that points out the perfect validity of the other side.

With that said, there are still cappers here that I greatly respect, and I will still consult with their perspectives of the games, for it is greatly helpful in my own process of becoming clear about the right side.

Let's go for a great weekend, guys! Sorry about the Marshall game, but we'll chalk it up as increased wisdom and just keep on keeping on!

1,000 times? Sounds like you haven't learn it once. Just kidding with you Reb, your one of the best, I just couldn't resist the way you phrased this statement.

Following your plays weekly, keep up the good work!

Aloha Reb,

Good Luck to my friend on tomorrows plays. Just wanted to pass on some info if you weren't aware or didnt see my post. Since your taking Houston, thought it may help you win more on your play. I think that Army has a major distraction in this game in the fact that next week they will be visiting Hawaii. I know that their minds must be constantly on their traveling to Hawaii. It is probably all that they are talking about. Because of this ,I think that they could care less on this game. As , I think that the only real game left they are concerned about is with Navy. I know for a fact how big it is a deal for many to have the chance to come to Hawaii, and it shows in the previous game. Well, I know you know what I mean, so enough said. I hope that this may help you get a bigger win in this game. Aloha to you , CC

For the week I was 9-5 (+26.5*) This makes me 30-15 (+106.9*) over the last 4 weeks. I lost track of my season record before that, so I'm basically just letting you know what I've done lately.

Went 4-0 on 10*s today. If you are only playing my top plays, you've been very happy recently. (Because the site went down Saturday afternoon, I was unable to post my 10* for the 2nd half of the Tennessee game. I am counting it in my record because it was posted on the other site I post on, and I have to keep my record consistent or I'll lose all track of it. Actually, not only did I have a 10* on the Tennessee game and 2nd half, I also played the 1st quarter and 1st half and won both of those too. 4 wins in 1 game. I enjoyed that.

Very soon I'll be chipping in with college hoops. If you followed my plays last season, you'll recall that I had quite a run with my 10*s with a 19-9 streak at one point, and had a consistently winning season overall. I only hope to do so well this year.

I'll post pro plays now and then, when I feel really strongly about one. I also had a winning season in pro baskets last season, so we'll see what happens this time around.

That's the "report" for now. Hope that you enjoyed a wonderful weekend
