War Against Wife Day
Nebraska is not that good, I can't believe they're a 2 score favorite.
Minny, Illinois, NW, MSU, Wisco.
But you'll surely lose the war. Strategery is called for. Acquiesce to Wife Day so that you may enjoy your other CFB Saturdays in peace (says the guy whose wife is out of town on Wife Day).
So, is it "Girlfriend Day" where you go to her $300/mo. apartment and watch football on her couch all day and drink beer while she pretends "life is perfect" for a few hours before you have to go home?
That's her "boyfriend day."
Damn phone. Penn state not iowa
I was in South Bend last weekend. I was there man... in the thick of it. It was horrible.
I need a break from college football. Just for a couple hours. Not including the fourth quarter of the Stanford-Washington game last night. And not including Ohio v. Sparty. Or the late games. So, just the noon games. But other than that... I need a break.
Iowa covers and Minnesota starts its quest for 6-6.
Penn State wins 6-3. Both teams will finish below .500.
IU covers but loses. NW will be in the Gator Bowl at 8-4.
Ohio State wins because I want them to.
Wisconsin covers but loses. Nebraska will win the Big 10 (If MIchigan loses in Lincoln)
I find it hard to believe that Iowa is favored against anyone, Minnesota or no Minnesota.
Minnesota, Illinois, NW, OSU, Nebraska
I think OSU will beat MSU. OSU's offense is at its best when someone runs right at it, and I think the Buckeye offense is better than it has looked at times. Miller is a hard guy to stop when OSU puts him in the right position, which they do whenever they really need a first down. I say it will be OSU 27, MSU 16.
16 points for MSU? Maybe with a defensive TD or two
I really respect Jamiemac's entire program. Could not agree more. My lady likes shopping. She can shop every weekend if she wants and she doesn't owe me anything. I like watching football.
There's no way Wisconsin covers that spread. They can't even score
Jamie, for those of us without gambling problems, the other games just don't have the same appeal as Michigan.
...who's avatar is Blue-Chip, a direct gambling reference.
Your wife must be nicer than mine.
Not only did my girl agree to go to Oktoberfest with me for the past week, she split the costs with me, let my friends crash on the couch in our room, didn`t get pissed when I drank too much AND managed to scare off a burglar that broke into our room before he took ANYTHING. That is why we need to take the time to realize that taking that extra weekend off to spend some extra time with our ladies is not a big deal. I love the stuff from Jamie, but I have to respectfully disagree this time. Although my situation is different and highly unusual, tomorrow will be wife day from 12am to 11:59pm.
That's not what I meant. I'm assuming your "girl" is not your wife, therefore is still nice to you. Wait until you're married and see how many times she's down with your drunken buddies crashing on your couch.
That said, your weekend sounded awesome.
Second wife, actually. Just because one experience is bad, donät get down. My first wife was a grade-A hobgoblin after the wedding day. It happens and all we can do is pick up our stuff and do it again.
You must have had a pretty good lawyer. The contrary argument is why most of us are living Wife Day tomorrow.
I got bent over, no doubt about it. Five years later I am better than ever. Keep your heads up.

mgoblog tradition--if sorta old school and suburban in a loopy way to begin with--and that we should perpetuate it.
been able to correctly parse your user name...and now I can't even read it at all. I say it as either M Go Bulls, M Glo Worms, M Globs Rule, and once M Go Boobles. I don't even know anymore. I just don't.
of Go Blue. Was trying, in the long ago and far away, to form a new word with the letters.
well done, sir...well done.
you aren't married.
MSU is too one-dimensional and will have a hard time with OSU's DL. I don't think they'll be able to exploit OSU's leaky back 7. Miller should be able to make just enough plays to eke out a win.
I think Wisconsin can stay within 7-10 of Nebraska.
For a non-B1G game I like Colorado getting 20 at home against UCLA. Colorado sucks, but they put it together at the end at WSU and should be up after getting an unexpected win on the road. I don't think UCLA will put them away until late.
I'm playing Minny +7 and OSU +2.5. I like your PSU play though, may steal that one
about Wife Day. WTF.
That's a good thing, Don. If your wife still doesn't know, don't tell her.
Jamiemac! Some weekends (like Sept thru Nov) are sacred guy weekends. Chicks gotta understand!
And MSU minus the points.
Good bet? I got $50 on them.
I have brunch tomorrow morning. Brunch! I cannot cancel this commitment, even for the heated Minny-Iowa and IU-NW showdowns.
Iowa -7 smells; run to the smell and take the Hawkeyes.
PSU -1? PSU.
Take the 11-1/2 and Wisky. Wisconsin has a better defense, so they can keep it close enough.
I have a couple unders.
Oregon @ Washington State at 73.5 and Baylor at West Virginia at 82.5.
I like to go by a general rule that a big o/u and a competitive mismatch means take the under. I don't think Wazzu or Baylor can hold up their end of the bargain to get to those numbers and Oregon and WVU back off when they get up big.
I'm going to watch two teams I hate field goal the shit out of each other! I've been divorced for almost two years. Happily.
I'm going to appease my wife tomorrow like I'm Neville Chamberlain. Happy wife, happy life.
HOWEVA, I'm lucky enough that Ms. ND Sux LOVES her some college fb, so I get to satisfy both objectives. She's not the 'wife', but close enough.
She also HATES THE F#UCK out of MSU, ever since the 2010 game in AA when their fans chanted 'go green - go white' all the way down Main St after the game. Every time they yelled "go green", we responded with "GO HOME".
Sconsin, Msu, NW, Illinois, Iowa bounces back.
...but shouldn't every day be "Wife Day" if you're married?
...yup, I'm THAT guy.
*ducks for cover*
Came close to using Minny. Only a light lean on PSU. Would only recommend those if you can get better than WA prices.
Get In the car! We're going to lunch with my mom then shopping.
Do you take the over or the under?
Wife Day is just another of the annoying, unfunny, beat into the ground items around here. Take a hike Wife Day and take Ermagherd with you.
i'm with you brother.
1) Either go on line to "Wifey.com" and tell your wife you have some ideas to show her (then run for cover!)
2) follow this link:
and go to WTKA.com (or your 1050-AM on your radio in the Ann Arbor area) and yell along with Bob Ufer as he describes the action in a re-broadcast of the 1979 game vs. state (starts in a few minutes at noon EDT). For added fun, quickly find a bicycle horn and join in with Ufe as he blows the "General Bo George Patton Scoring Horn" after each Michigan score. Then duck and run for cover!
It's difficult to ignore your wife for 13 straight Saturdays in a row. 1 out of 3, spread out is ok though.
Getting laid is more fun than watching a team that's not Michigan.
