Also love sitting among Tennessee fans, they sing Rocky Top all game, alot of fun.



I'm sorry but how can that be fun? I sat near the Tennessee Band at a University of Kentucky football game. I know....shitty seats. We moved half way through the 3rd quarter. Not sure why we stayed that long. The band played Rocky Top constantly and loud. I get flashbacks to that day when I hear Rocky Top. The dog barking thing on kickoffs with Bulldogs would be kinda funny.

I usually bet the bowl games, but I am passing this year. I've had a really good year sportsbetting, up over 5 grand, but that figure has been slowly coming down since my 7 grand win playing college basketball in the spring. I am fairly busy right now and my brother visitsk for 10 days over Christmas/new years, and I am not able to watch all the games, so I am ending my year on the plus side.

But there are a couple angles I have looked at in the past. One is a team that doesn't really want to be playing the game they are playing. A late bseason loss having knocked them from the bigger game they had their eyes on. Alabama and Ohio state both fit that mold, although I haven't even looked at who they are playing.

A second is that the heisman winner has often had a sub par game in his bowl game. Johnny Mandel bucked that trend last season, though.




If I had to pick one game that falls into that category where one team doesnt want to be there ...would be USC/Fresno

usc up to the very end was trying for a spot in the rose bowl....until they got beat by UCLA.

now their coach walks away and they are going to play in the desert against friggin fresno

I think fresno will be way more motivated.

THe line is only 5.5 so I am obviously not coming up with something original.

A team that thinks they deserve a better bowl game is my favorite college football betting angle. Play against them. Gamblers are probably getting wise to this....hence probably doesn't work anymore.

I think awful is actually the word I would use

they had 6 victories for the entire year and they were over teams that had a combined 17/55 record. None of the teams they beat won over 5 games on the year. In fact one team won 5 times, and the other 5 teams either won 2 or 3 games on the year. They have not one win over a team with a winning record.

Plus they recently just lost to CT, a team that has a fine 3-9 record.

And that resume earns them a "bowl game" with notre dame. What a slap in the face for notre dame. At least they had some quality wins



WVU is awful, Rutgers is very bad.

My favorite angle is in play. The disappointed team angle. Alabama believes they should be playing for National Championship. The returned field goal is playing on them and they are disappointed in playing in lesser bowl. Hence the unperformance. Gving Bob Stups and Oklahoma 16 points seems like a ton of points. Take Oklahoma and the 16 points. Your welcome.
