Are you ready for a world where a Sun Belt team is favored against a Big 10 club?
That's the reality of the day. Complete set of spreads for the opening weekend have been released. Here are the Big 10 games, some of which is old news as the 'bigger' games had lines realized weeks ago.
Minny +4 at MTSU....PLAY4BREW is an underdog against a Sun Belt team. Nice going.
OSU -29 vs Marshall
MSU -21 vs WMU
Wisco -19.5 at UNLV (lol, wisco at wisco. if it was only that easy)
NW -2.5 at Vandy....is this a trap? I thought NW might be favored by 6 or 7.
UM -3 vs UConn.....somebody in Vegas told me a few weeks ago, this had gone up to 4.5. Good to see when my Book released it was still -3. The Over/Under on the game is 53.5
PU +10 at ND.....I like this one a lot for some reason
Illini +13.5 vs Missou....up from 10 earlier in the summer. Nobody is betting the Illini
As for other lines across the nation:
Pitt +3 at Utah
Washington +3 at BYU
Oregon St +13 vs TCU (Dallas)
UNC +1.5 vs LSU (Atlanta)
Cincy -1.5 at Fresno
Maryland +6.5 at Navy
Boise -2.5 vs Va Tech (Washington)
Place your bets.
I was traveling on business this past week and saw a sign for IU Football Tickets and a special price for kids.
If you are planning on going down to Bloomington on 10/2 and bringing some young kids. Call the IU Ticket line at 1-866-IUSPORTS (487-7678).
Adult Tickets are $50
Youth Tickets are $5!
Yes, $5 per ticket. You can't get that deal through U of M and will have to call IU directly.
Enjoy and Go Blue!
Brian Cushing is just so awesome and worked so hard that his body started producing steroids all on its own.
Haven't heard him talking us up much lately, but evidently he's planning on coming up for an official. He joins the list of big time prospects (from Florida) who look like they'll take a serious look at UM if they win this year.
I fixing to set one up with West Virginia coming up, so West Virginia will be the first one I take. Then, I’ll take one to Michigan, the (USC) Trojans, Oregon and probably Marshall.
It might not mean anything, but if we get Dee, HaHa, Karlos Williams, Brandon Fulse, DeAnthony Thomas (obviously not from Florida) and him (correct me if I'm missing anyone) up the same week, serious chit-chat could occur.

Offensive Guard Jordan Walsh, committed to Iowa today. I had a good feeling about this kid going blue, oh well.
In high school, I played against a couple of now-UM football players. I was wondering if anyone else has had that honor as well. Any sport, any era.
I played Kelvin Grady when he was a HB at East Grand Rapids. Tough matchup for a white kid playing MLB. At least it wasn't Kevin.
I also played Prince Obi, but it was in rugby. I was also roughly matched up against him, I believe I was inside center and he was outside center. At one point, I was passed the ball and saw him barreling toward me (it's easier to read plays in rugby than football). Fearing for my life, I no-look hospital-passed away the ball as quickly as I could. Too late. I got laid out, driven back, and all-around wrecked. Cool thing is, Obi asked me if I was okay after the hit. When I regained consciousness 20 minutes later, I told him I was.
