It took a couple of warm-up weeks but Rankman, after going 4-1 against the spread last week, has finally figured out gambling. It’s almost time to mortgage the house and spend the kids’ college money. We’ll give it one more week just to be sure. The trick, we figured out, is to take Stanford and the 3 against UCLA and then wait for a fluke, meaningless, fumble return for TD with the clock at 0:00 to turn a push at 16-13 into a 22-13 pay off.
