It was late Saturday night and Oregon was comfortably leading Virginia, but not comfortably enough for me if-you-know-what-I-mean. Rankman needed a garbage-time touchdown to cover the spread to even his Week 2 record to 2-2. Almost on Rankman’s command, an Oregon player broke free for the points-covering touchdown (the spread was 24) only to have the PLAY CALLED BACK ON A HOLDING CALL! I know, I know, my Jersey friend boys back east are laughing at my naive understanding of this cruel, underbelly world. Remember, though, I never placed a SINGLE bet on college football in the 34 years I worked in the legitimate press. This stuff is new to me, which probably explains my W-L record through two weeks. Anyway, here’s hoping I get a holding call to go my way this week. My three games: San Diego State at Northern Illinois, Miami at Appalachian State and Oregon at Nebraska. Plus a bonus over-under pick on Alabama at Ole Miss. The rest of this article is available to subscribers only – to become a subscriber click here.
