Sprint Option: Week 3

I don’t even know how to begin here. I’m still dumbfounded by what happened this weekend. You’ll have to bear with me as I try to shake off the shock. Briefer one this week as there was not a whole lot of intrigue.

Let’s sprint it out!

Sprint Option: Labor Day Weekend

It’s here! It’s here!

College football has finally returned and with it, my primary reason for writing this blog. Thank the good Lord for college football.

First, I have been on vacation in the Cascades for the past week, so the first Bet the Board was regrettably delayed until week 2–I have had no service and the lines weren’t available on the games.

Second, I apologize for the dearth of articles over the summer. That’s squarely on me and due in no small part to the toxic conflation of politics with sports. As the editor, I lacked the desire to post anything for fear of my message getting hijacked by some stupid cause du jour. (It also didn’t help things that my Braves are terrible and our best baseball writer bailed to get drunk, teach college kids, and ramble about fiction–some of those things happen at different times.)

What I’m really saying is: blame Caleb, I’m not all that sorry, and screw your politics. College football is back! Let’s get to the Option!

Sprint Option: Fire the Committee (Into the Sun)

The table is set for the playoff and other bowl games. The four teams going are Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, and Washington. If this sounds familiar, it’s because you heard it last week. As you likely ascertained from the title, I am irritated by the result. Now, I promise that I will adhere to logic here; and I will hold out as long as I can. But, today, I write angry. 

That said, let’s get to the Option.

Sprint Option: Week 12

I’m currently riding shotgun on our drive back from vacation in New Orleans. Side note, is there anything worse than a long drive back from vacation? You’re essentially enduring a long reminder that the fun is over and it’s time to get back to reality. Speaking of segues, the fun is over for Ohio State and Oklahoma State after this weekend. Neither team is dead per se, but adding to the pool of one loss teams never really helps you. All this and more lie in wait in this article. Also, the Bet the Board picks went 9-1 this week, sole loss was OKST on a pick’em. If you’re not riding with us with numbers like this, I don’t know what it’s going to take. 

Let’s get to the Option.

Sprint Option: Week 11

I went 6-4 this weekend, I’ll have to total up at some point. I got dealt unpleasant losses by Texas, Oklahoma State, and Notre Dame. Jerks. Also, I escaped the Vandy-Kentucky game with a win–38.5 under, 38 total with Vandy in the red zone at the end of the game. I still don’t know how that didn’t go over. And, if you took the over, how pissed off are you? Because that’s a pretty bad beat in itself. 

Let’s break this weekend down.
