2015-16 College Basketball – All-Name Team

ucf tacko fall all-name team central florida college basketballWe have many new entries this season, but I’m sad great names like McWisdon Badejo and Nimrod Hilliard have graduated. We have plenty of fun names this year.

We picked through every Division-I college basketball roster and a few smaller schools for our list. This year’s class is solid and better than last year’s All-Name Team. We went through a rebuilding year and we are a better team.

My name is Bobby Roberts, so I am often jealous of people with unique names. The most unique thing about my name is that I was not born ‘Robert Roberts’, Bobby is my given name. I don’t know too many grown men named Bobby.

This list consists of names that we wished he had and ones we find humorous. Enjoy!

2015 NCAA Football – Week 2 Betting Picks Against Spread

funny fan america's white boy ncaa college football picks against the spread week 2 sweetbobSorry I didn’t post a ‘college football picks against the spread’ post last week. I never bet on the first week of college football. It’s too risky and honestly, a lot of it is just dumb luck. You don’t get a preseason to watch the teams and it’s a crapshoot. I like going into a ‘betting season’ with more knowledge than just what comes in a media guide.

I’ve been making college football picks against the spread for the last five or six years. I’ve only been keeping a running total the last two years. I am 282-197-12 during that time.

I’ve been on a hot streak the last two years. Any year in which you have a 60%+ success rate on your bets. it is a successful year. I hope I helped you guys out.

We pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (September 12th, 2015), and pick some smaller conference games as well. Enjoy!

College Football Week 12: Wounded Spartans Take on Maryland Terrapins in Must Win Game

Maryland Terrapins Michigan State Spartans 2014 college football logosThe true strength of a team is often measured in how well they bounce back after adversity. In college football, that usually means picking yourself up after a loss that caused what many might perceive as irreparable damage to your season. The team that has to do that this week is the Michigan State Spartans.

The Spartans were riding high and still very much in the playoff picture before facing Ohio State last week. Sixty minutes later, their hopes and dreams for the season had been pretty much demolished after taking a hefty beating that was sure to have resulted in a shell shocked locker room, and let’s not talk about what happened to their football betting odds to reach the college football playoffs. What made the loss even bitterer to swallow was that the Spartans defense had been so solid all year. If you had told people before that game that Michigan State would put 37-points on the board, very few would have bet on them losing, but the defense folded and gave up 49.

This week they have to go on the road to face a Maryland team that has been about as inconsistent as it gets. They are on a win one/lose one stretch of games that makes them very tough to figure out. This is a team that can’t seem to get a solid 60 out of their offense and defense. When one plays great, the other one seems to struggle. If the defense struggles this weekend, they could be on the end of a hiding.
