The Official 2019-2020 Season Football Thread
« on: August 24, 2019, 07:30:17 AM »
It's that time, and I actually get to watch some games today. Downtime at work for the first time on this rotation so I'll leave here at about lunch time.

Florida is better, but Miami has great athleticism as usual. Combine that with it being a semi-rivalry game, everyone's fresh, and first game jitters it'll probably be a close one. Rooting for Miami to help the ACC's strength of schedule.

Only other game today is Arizona Hawaii.

Oh damn. I just saw the game is at 7pm. Now I'll be pretty bored this afternoon.

A big thanks to Rivera for taking the preseason game against the pats seriously playing every starter and Cam Newton walking out of the stadium in a boot. :raincloud:

Never understood that mascot. Then again the "Tar heel" mascot is a ram lol. I've always thought the tar heels was a unique name in a cool way though at least.

The defense saved Florida's ass again, even thou they made their share of stupid plays also.

Who the hell throws the ball with 1:30 left in the game when you have the lead and the other team has 1 timeout left.
I seriously think Franks is color blind, because he threw that ball right to the Miami player or he had a large side bet on Florida losing.

I went to bed at the end of the 3rd Q. Up until I stopped watching there were 4 bad calls I think? The first 3 were in favor of Florida, then when Miami got a bogus call in their favor Florida's head coach blew a gasket. I chuckled, and the announcer at least said what I was thinking: 'The calls have certainly favored florida so far but this one sides with Miami' haha.

Miami blew it big time in the red zone in general, but especially in the 3q that one time. Florida even gave them an extra set of downs. It was a good trick play when the kicker ran with it 4th and 1. They probably would've got in the end zone had that counted. Can't believe they missed that FG. But yeah, FL's defense saved them especially in the red zone. Miami only had success when they were spread out.

I noticed that the spread was -7.5 for SC v. NC a few days ago. Now it's -10. It should be -20 at least. NC is in a rebuilding phase that'll at least take 2 years. Don't get me wrong I'd love to see NC play some good football again but -10 for SC is still a safe bet. -7.5 stuck out to me big time though. A great bet would be to take the under for the first half. The O/U is 63 and it'll probably be something like 10-3 at the half. Week 1 was when I always did the best, but I've stayed away from betting ever since I lost by 28,000 in gains.  :raincloud:

I just sent my wife a message. We're the tightest with money that we've ever been with my 2nd kid about to be born. Tight enough where I'll have to borrow a little from my parents. I told her I know this sounds a little nutty, but what if I got us out of this hole by me betting on college football again.

She replied, yeah I already considered that.  :lolsign:

You know you're good at it when that's the response from your old lady :badgrin:

Still on the fence about it though. I did so damn good for awhile there. I can 100% attribute me losing all my money from over-confidence in my own success. Losing a couple 10k bets erases the other couple hundred I made that were good. We'll see.... I'll probably chicken out.

Nonononononononono. Don't. Take it from someone who's lost enough.  :-[

When you don't need the money and it's all in fun, you'll win. When your backs to the wall and you MUST win, you won't.

What'll happen is you'll lose once, double up, lose again, double up, lose again... then you'll freak out and get furious that your luck could be so shitty, and you'll keep doubling up, and you'll keep digging the hole deeper. The losing streak hits everyone eventually, but it especially seeks out people who MUST win, and it takes great joy in fucking them up the ass until they've maxed out their credit cards, pawned their car titles, and sold their kidneys to chinese gangsters. That's a little extreme, yes, but that's just how sadistic the losing streak is. It'll go as far as you let it. It's not really the one fucking you up the ass, it's just standing there with it's dick out, and every time you place another bet, you're the one backing up and fucking your own ass with it's big veiny dick.

I'll just play it safe and play around with 100 and see what I can do with it. Last time I turned 250 into 28k over... 300 bets or so, but lost it all with 5. At the very least I'll avoid doing that again.

I've thought Georgia has been overrated several times in the last decade, but not really last year. Lmao:

LOL, he's out of his fucking mind if he thinks Notre Dame is gonna beat Georgia. Technically, anything's possible, but... Nah. They're playing IN Athens. If they were playing in South Bend, maybe. Georgia's gonna be even better this year. Notre Dame's biggest problem in my opinion is COACHING anyway. He's their weakest link. He doesn't have the balls to call the plays that'll put Notre Dame in a position to beat Georgia.

"...overrated SEC team..."

CRACKA, PLEASE! Besides THEM (who are actually consistently overrated), they're in one of the weakest conferences in football. Army, BYU, New Mexico State, UMass, Liberty, nobody wants to play them because beating them means very little. EVERYBODY wants to play against the SEC, because beating them is an accomplishment that means more. Notre Dame gets ranked so high for two reasons in my opinion, and both of them are stupid reasons to do so. #1, they look like Jesus Christ resurrected compared to the rest of their terrible conference members. #2, the retards they're polling have a hard-on for the movie Rudy. And I honestly think #2 plays a bigger factor, because those getting polled and deciding these rankings aren't taking their ballots serious enough to pay attention to ALL the games taking place in the current season.

What?! I think you need to see the laying-jerseys-down-on-the-coach's-desk scene again, bro.  :lolsign:

In all seriousness notre dame has gradually improved over the years. So they went from extremely over-rated, to overrated, and then to moderately overrated. They're decent now plus with such a cake schedule they're going into games fresh. But it's nauseating that their coaches' response to being able to barely back it up is exaggerating and arrogance. Georgia @ home probably has a 75-80% chance of winning. But you're right anything can happen. There's always that 1 out of 4-5 chance which could be worse.

I just looked at their schedule. Georgia is their toughest game by far. I really hope they don't win, because if they beat an overrated michigan team on top of that they'll make the playoff.

UVA or VA Tech could beat them.

When you play a cupcake schedule, you have less injuries also.  Your starters don't have to play 4 quarters each game.
