BIG TEN FRIDAY/SATURDAY TEASER!!!
NORTHWESTERN WILDCATS (4-3) @ EASTERN MICHIGAN EAGLES (2-5)
*Teasing the Wildcats from -10 to -4
After looking like Gary Busy in a mug-shot thru the 1st 4 games, the Wildcats have bounced back and won two of three Big Ten contests (Minn., @MST)…and their only loss coming by 12 to Michigan. In his 1st season as the fulltime signal-caller, JR. QB C.J. Bacher struggled with the offense early, but has been done a Tim Hardaway over the last two games (aka a changed man). After throwing 4 Tds, 7 Ints thru the first 5 games, Bacher has bounced back in the Wildcats last two victories with 9 Tds, 0 Int, 990 yards and a 75 comp%...damn! While the defense couldn’t stop the Little Giants from scoring double-digits, Eastern Michigan is not what I call an offensive juggernaut and has only scored more than 22 points once this season…and that was against then (2-4) Ohio...and they still lost. The Wildcats will easily score in the 50s tonight and I’d be shocked if the Eagles can muster 40 against anyone in the Big Ten. II luv it even more when you drop to -4 and pair it with…
IOWA HAWKEYES (3-4) @ PURDUE BOILERMAKERS (5-2)
*Teasing the Boilermakers from -7 to -1
I know the Hawkeyes shocked many with their victory over the Illini and the Boilermakers disappointed even more with a defensive performance against Michigan that would have made the Cincinnati Bengals look good...buuut as my friend T.T. Boy would say: “This is a whole new scene baby!” While the Hawkeyes defense was remarkable with Illinois’s one-dimensional attack, they still proved their offense is abysmal with an ugly 10-6 victory. Against the Boilermakers and their spread-offense, the weak spots in the Hawkeyes secondary will be exposed like Britany’s miss-shapen Ham Wallet...and I can’t see how Kirk Fairypants and his collection of terrible WRs will be able to keep up (ISU baby!). I know Purdue looked terrible last week, but they'll be chompin' at the bit Sat. mornin' (FYI...GET UP GAMBLERS!) and always look twice as good in front of the home-crowd. The only thing better than investin' on Purdue at home, is if ur able to knock it down to -1...damn, these Teaser are Fred Flinstone Fun!
Final Score: WILDCATS 54 BOBCATS 33
Final Score: BOILERMAKERS 34 HAWKEYES 20
SATURDAY’S STRAIGHT-UP PLAYS
I'm counting those as Bearcat colors!
CINCINNATI BEARCATS (6-1) (-10) @ PITTSBURG WANNSTEDTS (2-4)
You know what I think? After possibly the most embarrassing goal-line call in NCAA history and a season that has completely spun out of control, Wanny is faking this Achilles injury to gain sympathy from the faithful. The Panthers have lost 4 in-a-row since beating Eastern Michigan (see teaser play...forshadowin' baby!) & Grambling State, and have absolutely no passing game with freshman QB Pat Botstick. Against an undersized Navy squad last week, Bostick looked more nervous than a 15 year-old chick heading to prom with a captain of the football team...and I expect things to get even uglier against a riled-up Bearcat squad. After beating Rutgers at their place the week prior, Cinny lost a heartbreaker to Louisville (28-24), but that came against possibly the best QB in the country (Brian Brohm). With South Florida on the schedule next week, I probably wouldn’t have liked this game as much if the Bearcats had beaten Louisville…but they didn’t so I’m betting my emergency fund money on team that beat Oregon St. by 31 on the road...Hi, my name's Greg Gamble...
Final Score: BEARCATS 34 WANNSTEDTS 13
BTW…I guarantee this is one of Wanny’s quotes after the game:
“If it wasn’t for those three 80-play drives…we were in this game!”
TEXAS A&M AGGIES (5-2) (+2) @ NEBRASKA CORNHUSKERS (4-3)
Have you watched the last two Cornhusker gams? They’ve been outscored 86-20 and check this...neither team was Oklahoma or Texas...The AD was just fired, the head coach has admitted his players are looking for direction, and rumor has it...shhh, they just hired the Chicago Bears Secondary to help them with tackling. And finally, as for their transfer QB Sam Keller, what’s the phrase I’m looking for….ahhhh, yeah NOT THAT GOOD! As for the Aggies, while they looked terrible against the Red Raiders, I really think the program and coaching staff had trouble dealing with the gambling newsletter saga regarding HC Dennis Franchione (aka, he copied Insideplays.com and mailed it to his boosters). Let's not forget Da Aggies still have a lethal 3-headed rushing attack and should overpower a suddenly shrinkin' Cornhusker D-Line. The best part of this whole saga…the Cornhuskers just gave HC Bill Callahan a huge extension early in the season...oops.
Final Score: AGGIES 30 CORNHUSKERS 27
KANSAS JAYHAWKS (6-0) (-4) @ COLORADO BUFFALOES (4-3)
This can simply be found in the Greg Gamble handbook: Degenerate rule #241 (B) (4): If TeamA was piss-pounded by TeamC, and TeamB beats TeamC on the road...drink...and if the spread is less the a TD when TeamA plays TeamC...drink...tell your kids they’re not going to Iowa State they’re going to mutha frickin' Stanford. In conclusion beeatches, Kansas is the real deal and beat Kansas St. by 7 on the road two weeks ago...while da C o' BUFF has a freshman QB and lost at Kansas St. by 27 last week...Ginga Wasabi my friends!
Final Score: JAYHAWKS 34 BUFFALOES 24
*Updated line...Cal QB out!
CALIFORNIA BEARS (5-1) (-3) @ UCLA BRUINS (4-2)
The line hasn’t been up all week cause of Cal’s QB injuries, but no matter what…the Bears are gonna roll like Robert Tractor Traylor rolling down a hill. After the heartbreaking last second loss to Oregon State, the Bears players and coaches came-out this week with a fire in their eye like a Polack at 4:20! As for UCLA, who's down to their 6th QB, were blown-out two weeks ago by Notre Dame...and their coach is all but gone. Take the Bears, tease the Bears, and tell me thanks on Sunday.
Final Score: BEARS 37 BRUINS 20
