Good Morning All and Happy Sunday,
Its the AFC and NFC Conference Championship games today. For those interested, I thought folks might like to pick the point spreads and the over/under for both games. For those unfamiliar with either concept, the point spread is the amount that the favorite team which is listed first in both games is expected to win by. Your 'job' is to guess if you think they will win by that many points. If you do think they will 'cover the spread' (win by at least that many points), then you pick them and if you don't think so, then pick the underdog. The 'over/under' is just as simple: you decide if you think the teams' combined points in each game will be more or less than the over/under point spread, and you pick accordingly.
This week's line is:
Seattle 7 1/2 Green Bay
over/under 46 1/2 pts
New England 7 Indianapolis
over/under 54 pts
Editorial comments about your choices are welcome. If you wanted a 'Whatcha drinkin' Sunday Morning' thread this can be that too, and my answer is cold-brewed coffee, as per usual. No matter what, have a restful day and hopefully you will be enjoying the fellowship of your family and friends throughout.
Michigan CBs coach Roy Manning has been been hired as outside LBs coach at Washington State per source.— Thayer Evans (@ThayerEvansSI) January 18, 2015
A great pick up for WSU. Hope to see Roy Back with a Block M on his hat again in the future!
Darrell Funk is the new OL coach at Akron. Good luck to both of them.
How many Hoke assistants have landed new gigs?
Why is this significant? Well his crystal ball immediately had 3 predictions (including a Wisconsin insider) in favor of Michigan...
Am seriously contemplating a road trip with my brother to catch this game. Our sister lives in the area and said she will show us around for the long weekend. I completely trust her and it sounds great. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions of great eats, bars, sites, etc. that the area has to offer.
September 3- Still sooooooo far away......
