Stay humble, we said. There would be days like this, we said. But this is not a he-said, he-said. We here at Rankman & Son take responsibility for the blips and dips of fake sport wagering and prepared for winter’s day the way an Apocalypse survivalist stores canned beans in his Montana cabin. Rankman & Son build up a nice W-L cushion to absorb last week’s 1-5 hit to our collective egos.

No worries, these things happen. The over-under on Washington at Oregon was 57.5. Oregon scored in OT to hit 57 but, by rule, didn’t have to kick the extra point that would have put Rankman over the top. Son of Rankman, after a blistering start, got hit with an 0-3 punch that definitely left a bruise. But he is still 12-7-2  for the season and WE are 22-18-2 overall and are ready to press forward. Our only win last weekend was suddenly reliable Louisiana-Lafayette, which beat Vegas for a second straight week.  You say Rajin, we say Cajun!
