Thoughts on the BCS TOP 4

(Cam Newton and Auburn vaulted to #1 with a win over Alabama)

#1 - Auburn

They are here instead of Oregon because they beat Alabama last week. They are a very talented team offensively. With Cam Newton at the helm they can be the best team in college football. As far as he goes is as far as this team goes...that's why you pay him $180,000 a year. Oh and by the way I have no issue with players getting a sweet car or some extra money when they are bringing in as much money for the school as these guys are. Let's not get out of hand but why can't the kid have some extra money for food.

Auburn could be the best team in college football right now, the way they are playing they will be tough to beat. The only concern I have with Auburn is that they do allow a good amount of points per game.

#2 - Oregon

Oregon scores the ball better than anyone in the country. They also play solid defense. The reason they are #2 is because they have not played as tough as a schedule as Auburn. Auburn has South Carolina left and Oregon has Oregon State, so the rankings will be the same if they both win.

I think Oregon could definitely beat Auburn, they can score on anyone in the country it would probably just be a matter of who had the ball last. Certainly one of the most entertaining teams in the country, LaMichael James is a beast.

#3 - TCU

TCU does everything well, but it is hard to compare them to the top teams because of the weakness of their schedule. Every test that TCU has had they passed with flying colors. I think that TCU can compete and beat any team in the country, but they will be left out of the national championship if Oregon and Auburn win out. TCU and Boise State are huge reasons that we NEED A PLAYOFF IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL. Boise State did lose but if they had not we would of had 2 undefeated teams not playing in the national championship...just stupid.

It is unclear whom TCU will face in it's bowl game but they will compete with anyone so it will be exciting to see what they can do. Also, they are headed to the Big East next year and will certainly do well there.

#4 - Stanford

Andrew Luck is hands down the best QB in the country. Stanford has a great offense and an underrated D (11th in the country). They have only lost to Oregon. If Andrew Luck plays well then Stanford can stay with anyone in the country. If you have not seen this kid play yet then you need to check him out because he might be the best QB we have seen in college in a while.

Other teams in the mix

Wisconsin - Great D, great run game
Ohio State - Terrell Pryor will be a WR in the NFL, but for now he is a great QB for the Buckeyes
Arkansas - Ryan Mallet is huge...capital HUGE
Michigan State - Well rounded team, Cousins is having a good year for them
Oklahoma - Jones to Broyles is one of the best QB to WR combos in the country
LSU - Patrick Peterson is the best DB in the country

Wake Up With Hits...DB Swag

Really hope everyone listened to DG last night because we hit that under really hard, not even close $

Today's hit is Asante Samuel swagging all over Derek Hagan. Dude gets blown up COMPLETELY CLEAN AND LEGAL HIT...very nice work here. Not often you see the no hands no wrap no form swag tackle work perfectly.

Here it is...

Special MNF Hit

I was watching some highlights and stumbled across this beauty. Patrick Willis is one of if not the best LB in football right now, here he is doing what he does and destroying Brad Smith.

You can watch Willis tonight against the Cardinals in a sure fire barn burner (ugh)...

Happy MNF

Monday Night Football Special

(rooting for D in this one, Taylor Mays)

It's Monday so that means we have DG and his lock of the day. If you listened to DG on Thursday then it made your Thanksgiving that much better, if not get with the program.

DG take it away...


Alright betters, I gave you another win with my Turkey Day Teaser. If you didn't listen that's on you. Don't make that mistake again. We have a Monday Night Football game this week that no one cares about Not even Niners or Cardinals fans care, no seriously. This game is will showcase two of the most stagnant offenses in the NFL. So I am taking UNDER 41 tonight. On one hand you have the niners, who were picked by many to win the division and are now seemingly one of the worst teams in the NFL. They are pitted against a city who's hopes left when Kurt Warner said goodbye to the game of football....it was a sad day for football when that happened. I believe Fitzgerald is crying somewhere right now wishing Kurt were back.

So even though this is the QB match up of the year so far, Anderson vs. Smith, we have to UNDER 41.

Until next week....DG OUT!

Incredible Interception

We have all dreamed about doing this right? Well now it has actually happen. Landry Jones just tossing the ball out of bounds and a DB for Oklahoma State has other ideas. He skies to get to the ball and bat it back in play. Another Ok State DB sees this and grabs it.

Absolutely ridiculous...great play

Mid-day GLEE!!!!

I don't watch Glee (anymore) so I was not aware that they did a little football song/dance. Well as I always say anything can happen in High School football. So why not copy the Glee episode and make your own rendition of it...

Is that cool?

Wake Up With Hits...

I am not the biggest Boise State fan in the world, but props are due for how well they have been playing the last 4-5 years. They finally lost to Nevada in OT. For the record that game should of been over twice. I don't know if I have ever seen a kicker miss to FG's to win that were both inside 30 yards. Horrible day for that kid, hope he's doing alright because he cost the team the season.

Boise State hit for you today...

PS - Hope you enjoyed the free NFL $$$$$ DG brought us all on Thanksgiving.

Wednesday, November 24, 2010


Thanksgiving football tomorrow so of course we bring the gunning gambling guru out for the picks.

Here is DG with his Turkey Day Teaser...


Alright, sorry about Monday's pick people. Missed it by a point and a half. Maybe if Denver would have pretended they knew what they were doing out there. Oh well, can't win em all. But we can win on Turkey Day, and we will.

Two Team 7 Point Teaser: Patriots +1/2 @ Detroit & Saints +3.5 @ Dallas. The Patriots should beat the lions by at least a touchdown, easy enough. Drew Brees should destroy the Cowboys Defense. Tease them both down, watch both teams win, eat some turkey and collect your winnings. Simple Formula. Watch.Eat.Win. If only everyday were like that.

Until Next week. DG OUT!

Thanksgiving Day Hit

This hit apparently came on Thanksgiving and it's a pretty good one.

Enjoy the football, enjoy the turkey...enjoy the beers...HAPPY EARLY THANKSGIVING

Tuesday Fights

What blog was it that said anything can and will in happen in HS football. I don't remember...but they were certainly right.

Huge brawl here started by some haymakers to the dome. I think I saw some pepper spray in there as well, really crazy fight...is it possible anyone got hurt? Maybe a broken hand from punching helmets...

Wake Up With Hits...not so tricky

Here is a clip from a Zoo Mass spring football game. They attempted a double pa....it got cut short by a LB coming up and putting a vicious hit on the QB.

This is also a great way to get your QB hurt before the season ever starts.

Let's not run this one in the game.

Monday Night Football Special

(Picture I took of DG last night at his house)

Another Monday and another bet from DG. After a big win last Monday DG is looking to continue his hot streak.

Below is DG unfiltered and ready to help everyone pay the cable bill...


Alright betters, if you listened to me last week I told you to sell off all of your assets and take my Monday Night Football Lock. I did not disappoint. It was by far the easiest bet of the year, just as I predicted, Hope you all listened.

This week we have another Monday Night lock. I am very confident in this pick as well, I just wont be advising anymore selling of assets. That is a once a year thing. Broncos will be traveling to San Diego tonight for what will surely be a high scoring battle. I am taking over 50.5 total points. Denver allows 28 points a game, and against a potent passing offense in San Diego they will surely be giving up more than that. Denver is no offensive slouch. Orton is having a hell of year with almost as many yards and TD's as Rivers. Take the over tonight and enjoy some free money courtesy of DG.

Until Thanksgiving...DG OUT.

Wake Up With Hits...wrestling moves

Definitely a flag in the NFL, because of how soft the league is getting. But nice clean tackle at any other level of football. It must be pretty embarrassing to get slammed like that, he did hold onto the ball though so we will give him that.

Told you it was a flag in the NFL...

Trick Play Friday

First of all I would like to clear up rumors that I was at the opening of Harry Potter last night camped out in a tent. To dissolve these rumors please refer to my twitter timeline @2ndnshort.

Now on to the trick play, very well executed here. Great throw and unbelievable catch...

Should have some picks for you later today so we can all make some money this weekend.

Thursday, November 18, 2010

Hopefully Your Already Up...with HITS

Late post today, had a tryout with the Panthers for their starting QB spot...it went pretty well

Well here is your hit...laid out

Also took some reps at RB, went well

No podcast tonight but look for a big day out of us tomorrow as we get you ready for the games this weekend...

If you've got a twitter make sure to yell at @thefluxcapcitor because he has been MIA for weeks now and we have not done a podcast in years...Rumor is that he has a GF, not good

Quotes Quotes Quotes

Montana Tech has a football team, that football team has a coach and that coach is awesome. The local news spliced up his interviews to included all of his great quotes and it is actually pretty funny.

All coaches have different ways of expressing themselves and his way is straight metaphors...He never really says anything at all he just makes a strange comment and keeps it moving.

Gotta love it

Mid-day STREAKER...(SFW)

Nice streak here, had it's moments, he evaded for a decent amount of time, and then got jacked up by a security guard.

Apparently this is the second time this year he has done this... pretty funny

Do you think it would be possible for someone so fast and athletic to run around for like 5 minutes and get a scholarship out of something like this. Maybe at a school with a really bad team? If someone really streaked for five minutes without getting caught they deserve to be the punt returner, no one wants to return punts anyway.

Also would like to add that it looks like he has a pretty solid MOVEMBER going on...epic epic epic

Wake Up With...High School Comebacks

Everybody loves a great comeback, right. Well we have got a good one here...not typical either. Usually when these go down it takes 5+ laterals and some shady tackling and all sorts of stuff. This was the cleanest trick play miracle ending I have seen in a while.

Only took a couple of laterals and two missed tackles and BOOOM GAME OVER...enjoy

Game was tied 28-28

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Now That's Football

Not a big fan of the Jets but this has to go up.

Jerricho Cotchery got hurt mid play and still managed to suck it up and keep playing, ending the play with a great diving catch. This is why football is awesome, because guys like this play it. Dudes are always hurt and they go out and get it done.

Hats off...

Is he as tough as Greg Jennings though??? (NSFW LANGUAGE)

Wake Up With Hits

If you listened to us last night you won the Monday Night Football bet in the first half (almost in the first quarter). So hopefully all of you followed DG's advise and bought yourself a nice breakfast this morning.

In celebration we give you this...

Monday Night Special

(DG is pictured above, after winning last time we posted his picks here)

If you listened to us this weekend, you didn't do very well on your bets (we are probably like 1,356-8-4 on the year so give us one bad week).

But we are givers here and wan't to bring some money in on a Monday.

This is an NFL bet so we have contacted resident expert DG on this one and he has an absolute killer bet for you all....GO!!!


Alright, let me be clear. The follow pick is for those who want to make some serious coin. This is an absolute lock. I am selling my burros and betting everything I have on this one.

2-Team 7-Point Teaser: Eagles +4 and Over 36. (moved from Eagles -3 and o43- incase you are dumb and cant do the math, in which case you should probably not be betting)

The eagles are a good team with Vick at the helm. Yea sure he kills dogs, but shit, who honestly cares besides PETA. The Skins are a team in a bit of trouble, their QB isn't even in good enough shape to do 2 consecutive minutes of cardio. The eagles will score at least 27 points tonight. I suspect the skins will score around 17. If I were a betting man, which I am, I would say Final: Birds 31 Indians 17. Should be a pretty comfortable win. Quick sell off all of your assets and bet this game hard.

Until next week....DG OUT!


(Casey Tipson MVP)

I got word this weekend that my former HS team (Rice Memorial) had won the Vermont State Championship. They beat an undefeated Middlebury team 38-20.

Rice Football=Powerhouse


Nice vid of Rice killing BHS as usual...

Spread offense...Swag

Betting Guide: Week 11


Alright it is Friday so we have some games that you guys can make some money on.

Penn State +18 @ Ohio State

Yes, Penn State is having a down year and OSU is really good. But Penn State is not 18 points worse then OSU. Also OSU tends to be a pretty conservative team. Don't look for PSU to win this one but look for them to keep it within 18.

The Pick - Penn State

Stanford -6 @ Arizona State

Arizona State has hung tough in some losses to big teams this year, but this will not be the case against Stanford. Andrew Luck is the best QB in the country and he is going to pick apart the Sun Devils secondary. Also, Stanford needs this win as they only have one loss this year and it was to Oregon, The Sun Devils season has been over for a while.

The Pick - Stanford

Utah -5.5 vs Notre Dame

Utah got absolutely embarrassed by TCU, but TCU is nasty. Notre Dame is coming off losses to Navy and Tulsa, not exactly TCU caliber teams. Utah can still finish the season with only one loss and that is their goal right now. This should be a ten point win for Utah.

The Pick - Utah

Illinois -20.5 @ Minnesota

Illinois is OK this year, we do know that they can put up points even if it was against Michigan's D. Minnesota on the other hand is awful and they have lost nine games in a row. This is the classic match up of an alright team and one of the worst teams in the FBS.

The Pick - Illinois

and now we have the........................


hint below

TCU -27.5 vs San Diego State

TCU went on the road last weekend and blew Utah right out of the BCS, they now return home to face San Diego State. This spread should be 50. TCU is on an absolute roll and needs blowout wins the rest of the year in hopes that they can crack the top 2 in the BCS. San Diego State will not get in the way of TCU, they will be run out of the building early in this one. Can't wait to see TCU's uniforms because they def got beat in that department last weekend by Utah. Comeback week for TCU's jerseys.

and BAM just like that we are done...do you feel richer, you should

and one of my favorite pump up speeches to get you into the weekend mood...

Trick Play Friday...the ol' swinging gate

Pretty nice play here, usually see the swinging gate for a PAT, but here we see it for a fake punt. Gotta love the swinging gate in HS because the players just freak out.

Defense actually looks like they practiced defending this but forgot about the snapper.

Wake Up With Hits...kickoff

I am picky when it comes to big hits on youtube, I can't just put up any hit. A big hit needs to have a little extra to be up here.

I will admit that the helmet flying off is probably my biggest soft spot, if the dudes helmet comes flying off I will most likely put it up here.

Nice little swag after the hit as well, nothing over the top just swaggy...

Oh and as far as the title of the video goes..."hit of the decade" get off your high horse buddy...not even close

Wake Up With Hits: Hair Hair Hair

You don't see the great ones getting blown up to often (see Hines Ward vs Ed Reed), but it happens...good to see that the L has not gone completely soft.

Wake Up With...I just feel bad now

Game is tied, 2 seconds left, your on your own 40. Kneel the ball and head into overtime, no need to throw a hail mary or do anything risky, just kneel the ball and head to OT. JUST KNEEL THE BALL AND HEAD TO OT.

Or you could run around until the clock expires, think the game is headed to OT when the clock hits :00 (even though you have not been tackled or gone to the ground). Have the ball stripped, and run back for the game winning TD.

I think option number one would of been the way to go here but hey what do I know. HS football ladies and gentleman, always exciting.

I honestly feel bad for this kid...seriously

Position Rankings: WR's

(Alshon Jeffery is kind of a beast)

Below you will find a list of my top receivers in the country. Feel free to disagree and sound off in the comments.

1.) Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State

As we have been seeing more and more in the last five or so years, big receivers get it done. These guys also tend to be the guys who get it done in the pros (see Megatron, AJ and Hakeem Nicks to name a few). Blackmon and the next guy on this list are prime examples of big guys putting up major numbers. Blackmon uses his frame when he needs to but a lot of the time you can see him pulling away from guys in the open field with his speed. Note that these numbers could be even better if he had not missed a game due to a little incident we like to call a DUI. To add to all of this the kid is only a sophomore.

Stats: 75 Catches 1,285 Yards and 15 TD's

2.) Alshon Jeffery, South Carolina

Jeffery is a monster at 6-4 233 lbs he eats corners alive and also has the speed to get it done in the open field. QB Stephen Garcia has no problem throwing it up to Jeffery and letting him make the play. Jeffery also has ridiculous upside as he is only a sophomore this year. Look for Jeffery to continue to light it up this year as he shows no sings of slowing.

Stats: 59 Catches 1,034 Yards and 7 TD's

3.) Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma

Broyles is different then the first two guys because he is a smaller guy at 5-11 180, and regularly makes the tough third down, and short catches. That being said he has a knack for the big play and is explosive in the open field. With Landry Jones throwing to him this year he has been the best WR on the team and has been a big part of the success that Oklahoma has had.

Stats: 86 Catches 1,077 Yards and 8 TD's

These guys are the top three in the country but there are others that are close, see below for 5 more guys that should not be overlooked.

4.) A.J. Green, Georgia
A.J. missed half of the season due to NCAA violations (suspension was BS) so we can't put him in the top 3 but he deserves special mention here because he is arguably the most talented of the group.
5.) Michael Floyd, Notre Dame
6.) Julio Jones, Alabama
7.) Randall Cobb, Kentucky
8.) Titus Young, Boise State

wait for the replay at the 50 second mark

HS Football is getting ridiculous...

Well here we go again, another day and another ridiculous HS play. I think the coach and player got ejected in this one.

Strange to get an excessive celebration personal foul before scoring. Also strange that he was not involved in the play at all, they were just throwing deep.

Just chalk it up to another day in the world of HS sports I guess...

Wake Up With that's not even fair...

So is this kid a stud in HS right now seeing that this was taken in 2005. Someone needs to find this kid because he lit that kid up pretty good.

He is like twice as big as everyone else so that might be why it looked so good but seriously do you think he got tackled more then 5 times all year. The kid is probably the big kid hitting home runs in little league as well...

Monday, November 8, 2010

Wake Up With...who is coaching this team?

Ok, so we have all seen the wrong ball trick play. Kid yells that ball is dirty hikes it, walks to sideline and then takes off.

This is a little different, the KID WALKS STRAIGHT UP THE MIDDLE!!!

Is this the first game anyone on the yellow team has ever played. Do they not have access to youtube. Has the coach ever played football in his life. Have the parents in the stands ever seen a football game before.

The answer to all of these questions has to be no. Like honestly how does this happen in 2010. I am stunned and completely lost that this actually happened. On the bright side this is what makes anything below college football awesome, because things like this happen.

Happy Monday.

Big shout to DG for the link...802

Betting Guide: Week 10

(FYI Abe Voted for us in the latest election)

Alright, so no pod this week because Sir Paulie Grouper is ill (definitely faking it but who I am to judge).

But we still have the picks for you so that you can go on that cruise you always wanted to go on.

Wisconsin -20 @ Purdue

After watching Purdue play in person @ OSU (they got waxed 49-0) it seems like this is a pretty good bet. I don't think Purdue hangs on for more then a quarter, and this thing will be over pretty quickly. Not to mention Wisconsin needs this win, and Purdue's season is over...


Boise State -23 @ Hawaii

Saw my first episode of the new Hawaii 5-0 this weekend, it sucked. Boise State obviously needs to run the table and with either Utah or TCU losing this weekend they need to win big. Look for Boise State to blow this one open early as they cruise to a BCS satisfying win.


Colorado -9 @ Kansas

Battle of the crap teams here. Kansas stinks, really bad. Now Colorado is no gem themselves but they are better then Kansas is. Betting on Kansas playing like they usually do in this one.


Iowa -17 @ Indiana

See the theme here, we are picking the good teams (you stay out of this convo Colorado) to beat up on weaker opponents on the road in must win games. Iowa is a really good team and they need this win, Indiana is just waiting for basketball season to start (wait, they suck as bball too).

The Pick - IOWA



Oklahoma -3 @ Texas A & M

This is one of those lines that gives you the poo face, I simply don't understand it. Oklahoma is a really good football team this year and with only one loss (against a ranked Mizzou team) they are still in the hunt for a major bowl game. This is a must win for them and they should handle Texas A&M in this one.


Have a good weekend...

Game of the week...TCU @ Utah

Trick Play Friday

Only took me and hour and 48 minutes to find a trick play this morning...

Ball almost get's picked off here and the kid still manages to pitch it back...

Great weekend of football ahead...FRIDAY!!!

Wake Up With Hits: Blocked Punt

Stupid, stupid, stupid video but the hit is crazy. He does not try to block the punt at any point here, he just levels the poor kid. Was anyone blocking here at all because a bunch of guys got through...


Sometimes you all just need a little KG to get you through the day and onto Friday...your welcome...

He's back!

Wednesday, November 3, 2010

Wake Up With Hits: Blocking is Cool

This kid gets absolutely murdered on the punt return...he didn't see the hit coming, and to be honest he probably doesn't remember.

Hump Day!!!!

Who is Coaching/Playing HS Football These Days?

Ok, so the link below is to a ridiculous HS football play. My reaction is after the link..

Again, as we posted earlier this week this HS game features some very windy weather, and some idiots. So basically a kid on the white team punts from his own 1 yard line. He gets a pretty good kick off although the wind helped a lot and it lands around the 50. The game is being played on astro turf so it starts bouncing, and rolllllllllllllllling, and rolllllllllllllllling until it literally rolls down to the 4 yard line...a 86 yard punt (you take away 10 yards for the snap)...

The white team moves a long with the ball the entire way and the black team JUST WATCHES.

Hey black team the further that ball goes the more yards you lose...have you ever watched football before, fall on the damn ball. No need to pick it up or try anything heroic, just fall on the ball. The white team is just watching the ball, go fall on it and save your team 50 yards.

How does a coach let this happen, I would be screaming for someone to fall on the ball...

HS football will always amaze me...12OT's one day, a negative yard kickoff the next and now this...I guess that's what makes HS football awesome, absolutely anything can happen

Wake Up With Hits: Dude get out of the way

Just stumbled on this from a couple of years ago. Gotta love the effort but I mean come on, you are begging to get lit up here.

BCS Rankings: Reactions

Alright, when I was looking at the schedule for last weekends games, I wasn't over the top excited. But we ended up seeing some pretty big shifts in the top 10 as a results of a couple of upsets.

Here is the BCS top 10:

BCS Standings
4Boise State7-0

Oregon came out slow but ended up blowing USC out, they have done everything right and deserve to have the top spot.

Auburn got a big win as well and looked pretty impressive, If Oregon vs Auburn was the championship that would be pretty crazy, considering where the teams were pre-season.

Boise State got passed by TCU and the two are currently 3rd and 4th in the polls. If Boise State misses the title game and goes unbeaten it would really make the case for a playoff, and that would be awesome. Or if TCU misses it and does the same...PLAYOFFS!!!

Utah has been creeping up the polls slowly and has finally cracked the top 5. They have a HUGE game against TCU coming up. It is really crazy to see Boise State, TCU, and Utah in the top 5.

Alabama made out very well in their bye week as they moved up #6, make no mistakes they are still nasty.

Oklahoma and Nebraska got huge wins and are still right in the convo.

Wisconsin and LSU round out the top 10.

Michigan State is out after losing to Iowa, and Mizzou is as well after falling to Oklahoma.
