SEC/ACC Rankings: Week 4



We are headed to Week 4 and Alabama continues to roll. They remain in the top spot as the gap continues to grow. Clemson holds off Georgia for the #2 spot and Arkansas free falls all the way to the bottom of these rankings.

For those keeping track, and I know you are, Clemson is projected as 16 points better than South Carolina on a neutral field. Clemson's strength of schedule dips to 98. That should get a boost after their games with Georgia Tech this week.

Comrade is sooooo wrong

The Comrade likes to pull screenshots. I thought it would be good to show his thoughts compared to Rob on the show. Listen to his nonsense about Georgia....Rob nailed it...The Comrade...not so much

Could he be anymore wrong? Catch more of the Comrade and his silly picks tonight on the show.

SEC/ACC Rankings: Week 3




We enter week three of the college football season and here are the latest Sagarin Ratings for all the SEC and ACC teams.


Georgia jumped Auburn after their beat down of South Carolina. Clemson stays at #2 but they dropped from a 94 rating to a 92 rating after escaping from College Station with a win.

The Gamecocks dropped one spot and lost two rating points after their loss. The Gamecocks' strength of schedule ranking is now 51st in the country which is the best SOS ranking of any SEC team. That isn't exactly impressive.

As we look forward to the Clemson/South Carolina game, according to the Sagarin Ratings, Clemson is 16 points better than the Gamecocks on a neutral field.

Four ACC teams top the SOS list with Duke, FSU, Louisville and North Carolina.

Report: State Officials Urging Gamecocks to Cancel Game This Weekend




The Gamecocks are hoping to rebound this weekend against Marshall but state officials would rather them cancel the game to help with Hurricane Florence preparations.

As of right now, local high schools in Columbia are being set up to house and feed lineman and emergency personnel who will be on call to deal with the after effects of Florence. State officials would prefer them be in hotel rooms. That can only happen if the Gamecock game is canceled this weekend.

So far the North Carolina/Central Florida game has been canceled as well as the West Virginia/N.C. State game.

The Comrade's College Football Betting System: Five Locks for Week 2




I made a video last week and let's just say it didn't work out too well. Yes, I looked great as always but the picks were horrible. It was quite possibly the worst weekend of gambling in my life.

I have been under the hood looking at the system. The system is sound but it needed a little oil. It is time to get it up and running for the weekend.

Here are my betting system locks for the weekend:

Stanford -3.5 over Southern Cal
Kansas State +9.5 over Mississippi State
Army -9.5 over Liberty
Colorado +5.5 over Nebraska
California +3.5 over BYU

Rob and I made our picks on the South Carolina and Clemson games along with a few other key games this weekend on our podcast. Listen to those picks here

If you want my best baseball picks. Check out the Pesky Pole Blog

As always, if these picks help to make you money come back and feel free to donate some of your winnings. Good luck

If you are going to burn your Nikes..

People across the country are upset about Nike using Colin Kapernik as a spokesman for an ad campaign. People are setting shoes on fire. If you plan on doing something like this guy did....


Save the shoes...Donate them to the Oliver Gospel Mission.
You can also donate them to the VA. They will get them to a veteran who can use them.






SEC/ACC Rankings: Week 2




Week one is in the books and it is time to look at the updated Sagarin Ratings. We will do this weekly to see where teams in the SEC and ACC relate to each other. The Strength of Schedule (SOS) ranking is the national ranking among all teams based on the games they have played. This is why both South Carolina and Clemson have such a bad SOS currently. That will change drastically after next week.

You will notice the SEC has 6 of the top 8 while the ACC has 7 of the Top 13. The SEC has the two worst teams in Vanderbilt and Tennessee.
