Bet the Board: Week 4

I write this as I get ready to drive up to Atlanta to watch Georgia Tech play Clemson at Bobby Dodd–notably, the site of Clemson’s last regular season ACC loss. I had an OK week last week, bringing me up to a season win percentage of .650. Let’s get to the option.

Aaron It Out: NFL Week 3

Anyone else feel like David did coming home from the dentist when you stop to consider the NFL so far this season? Is this real life?

There’s a lot to get to today.

Looking Ahead: Big XII

Dust off the cleats, ladies and gentlemen. It’s August and we are within field goal range of the college football season. In many ways, this year has flown by, in others, it hasn’t. I think I speak for us all when I say that the offseason never passes fast enough. 

We will start off our season with the Power 5 conference previews, which will be an earnest effort to predict the championship game matchup (for four conferences anyhow).  We’ll start with the flyweights and work our way up to the heavyweights.
