Well...That Sure Did Suck

This post is going to be short because I'm still dealing with the UCLA loss. And by "dealing with," I of course mean drinking heavily. The Bruins were coming off a bye week, and yet they still didn't have a pass play deeper than 5 yards in the playbook. The Huskies tried to help the Bruins out by seemingly playing 8 on 11 for the first 25 minutes of the game, but thanks to some very timid playcalling and poor execution in the redzone, UCLA was only able to build a 16-0 lead. Once the Huskies established a little momentum on a 3rd and 18 conversion (and a terrible decision to go for the INT by Rodney Van), I got that sinking feeling that the Bruins were going to regret not putting the game away when they had the chance. Sure enough, the Huskies started moving the ball on offense and stuffing up all the short zones on defense. UCLA's coaching staff never made any adjustments and Ben Olson was staring down receivers and throwing into double coverage. Bad combination. Bad result, and a long year ahead.

After the game, I turned over to Notre Dame/Michigan State and was pleased to see the Spartans up 17 in the 2nd half. At least I had that bet in the bag to ease the pain. Wait...what??

Dammit all. Oh well, nothing to do now but drink some more beer and place some more bets. Tomorrow I like:

SF +6 vs Philly
Cincy +1.5 at Pit
Chicago -4 at Min
Carolina -3 at Tampa Bay
Denver at New England UNDER 38.5

Now it's time to slip into a lil' mini-coma....

Today: 3-2
Year to Date: 15-19-1
