Things to be thankful for this week: Golf weather in Chicago in late November. And college football picking, which will drive you nuts, is nearing the end of this season.

I am weary of studying and calculating, only to see Michigan AND Michigan State fumble on the 1 yardline, blowing up two of my picks. I want to live in a world where we don’t have to choose betweeen Rutgers and Indiana. In football.

I am tired of trying to figure out why Iowa can put up 55 points against Ohio State, but only  35 points against Michigan State, Northwestern and Purdue combined.

I am thankful, though, that it’s time to move on from last week (6-1 straight up, 1-6 ATS) to this week’s madness. I am also hopeful this week will go better.

Hope you’re having a great Thanksgiving weekend.

Good luck in sports.
