Coulda. Shoulda. Woulda.

Let’s get this over with quickly. Because as the great philosopher Ron Zook once said, “Nobody cares.’’

Your humble picker drank too much Ohio State/Penn State Kool-Aid last week. He also was suckered by the Badgers’ hospital ward of an injury report. He changed channels, only to discover later that Notre Dame had given up a “meaningless’’ touchdown in the final minute. And finally, Alabama’s offense left me and Nick Saban muttering.

And that, my friends, is how you turn a good week (4-2 straight up) into a 1-5 disaster against the dreaded Spread.

We’re still above water at 32-28 on the season.

Time to move on. . .

Good luck in sports.
