Nothing Left, to Say...

Blame it on Gustav. Or as lib’ruls do, blame it on President Bush. The cutting edge technology, satellite feed, digital uplink between the Nevada and Texas offices of the Pollack, Mexican and Texican Sports Betting Service failed us last week. Okay, mostly it wasn’t a technology failure. After all we happen to have at least a couple graduates of Texas Tech who read this blog and they would blow the whistle on any excuses involving technology assets that weren’t completely beyond reproach. Nope, the PMT Sports Betting Service failed to deliver last week due to the incredibly busy social calendars of its Executive Board. I attempted to hand off the duty of posting the picks to the Texican but he was caught Friday night on the road between football games and the pressing demands of a former bikini model flagging him for illegal procedure.

Since we didn’t make any posts, I won’t bore you with the details but last week we continued our winning ways. The Pollack and Mexican both went 1-1 with our (intended) posting picks. The Texican went 2-0. For those of you keeping score or tracking your winnings and receipts for IRS purposes, that puts us at a collective 7-2 on the year thus far. If you can’t make money on those percentages then brother, you’d best be on your way to the post office to change your voter registration.

Now we head into week 3 of NCAA action, three weeks before the annual Boy’s Football and Business Weekend in Vegas. We’re gearing up folks and have a bevy of pigskin picks for your entertainment. So without further a-do, here are this weeks humble offerings:

The Texican leads off this week with a strong endorsement on Texas Christian over Stanford. Stanford comes into Amon Carter Stadium in Fort Worth, back in the day it used to be the “Dust Bowl”. Second week on the road in a brutally hot environment for the Cardinal. The Texican says the birds wilt and TCU covers the 12 pts. The Texican’s second play is UCLA over BYU. Our ever jovial Texas correspondent expects Neuheisel’s Bruin squad to deliver some payback for last years bowl loss to the Proselytizers.

The Pollack is tossing three choices out there this week. Oregon State has a mean-on after two brutal losses. They finally come home to Corvallis and take it out on the young Hawaii squad. Besides, the Pollack wants to know how you can bet on any team that has “Rainbow” in its mascot. Give the 11 and take the Beavs. Although it pains me, I have to agree with the Pollack’s second selection, give the 20 and take the Dirt Burglars from OU to paste Washington. Yes the game is in Seattle but unless there are storms of Biblical proportions, and three feet of flood waters on the field, no current UW defense is going to slowdown the Sooners. Finally the Pollack offers up an NFL selection, take Tampa at home, give the 9 pts and watch the Falcons get picked apart.

For my part I like a pair of NCAA matchups. First off I know a lot of people are expecting East Carolina to take a fall after their two huge upsets to start the season. I think not. Give the 13 pts and bet that the Pirates have another surge in them to dismantle Tulane in the Superdome. I know that this isn’t the usual doormat Tulane team, but then hey, that’s why they call it gambling. Next Oregon over Purdue, lay the 7 pts. Yeah I know, two road selections and Oregon is playing on the road in the Big Ten. Well that same Oregon team went into Michigan last year and tore the Wolverines apart in the Big House. Ross-Ade Stadium is no Big House. NFL action, Titans-Bengals total line 39, take the under.

Since our voluble Texican has so handsomely weighed in on the Sarah Palin selection, I’ll leave the political front in his capable hands for the next few days as I engage in maintenance chores around the ol’ B bar V spread. Now getcher hind ends over to your local wagering establishment, (or bookie as the case might be) and take advantage of our alternative to the democrats' deficit reduction plan.
