Early prognosis sees Arizona State covering the (+21.5) points and Virginia covering the (-2.5 ) points. I must do some research and get on the ball, since I haven't bet in almost a week. I might have to have a flutter this weekend.....:eek:

Parkhead, do you follow the college game at all?

Re: football

Captain,

i used to follow it pretty close, however i am in the dark coming in to this year. I haven't heard that much talk about the upcoming season to be honest with you.

Usually good odds though. Might just have to myself a sports action ticket for this weekend.

Bowl games in full swing....

Here are my source's picks for the all the bowl games. So far, he is 3 - 2 against the spread.


In its 46th year, The Captain's source predicts probable scores of college and NFL football games each week.

Bowl Season: Dec. 17 - Jan. 3

Outback Michigan 24 Florida 21
Cotton Texas 21 LSU 10
Gator N.C. State 21 Notre Dame 20
Capital One Penn St. 22 Auburn 17


So far, there have been a few entertaining games. Texas Tech absolutely TTP the Clemson Tigers 55 - 15. The offense was unstoppable and fun to watch. North Texas upset Cincy 24 - 19 and Tulane upset Hawaii yesterday 36 - 28. UCLA scored 2 defensive touchdowns to defeat New Mexico 27 - 13 and Marshall lumped Louisville 38-15, thanks to Heismann trophy finalist Byron Leftwich and his 4 touchdowns. David Kingsbury had a great game for Texas Tech also, throwing for 362 yards on 30 of 40 passing, 3 touchdowns and one pick. He will make it in the NFL as long as he gets a bit more size. Nothing that a healthy dose of steroids can't help.

For the record, I am 2 - 3 on my bowl predictions, against the spread. For today, in the MOtor City Bowl, expect a shootout between Toledo and Boston College. I am going with the upset and taking Toledo(+4) to cover. In the Insight Bowl, a strong Pitt defense will have a good test against the option offense of Oregon State. Oregon State is favored, despite being unranked and Pitt being ranked #24 in the country. I'm also going with the dog in this one, in a low scoring game, even for college football standards.

Captain's predictions:

Pitt 24 Oregon State 20

Boston College 37 Toledo 34

Nudie Bar Does it again!

Witt: Price warned before trip about his behavior


TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Mike Price was fired by Alabama without coaching a single game because of behavior including a night at a topless bar -- another embarrassment for a once-proud football team.


University president Robert Witt said Saturday that Price failed to live his "personal and professional life in a manner consistent with university policies."


Price, hired away from Washington State in December, lost his job because of his conduct on a trip to Florida last month for a pro-am golf tournament. Witt disclosed for the first time that Price was warned before that trip about his public behavior.


"To the university and the entire 'Bama Nation, I admit making mistakes and at times inappropriate behavior, but I also ask for your forgiveness," Price said.


He isn't the only college coach whose conduct away from games has been under scrutiny. Iowa State men's basketball coach Larry Eustachy was suspended last week for being photographed at a student party after an away game. The school's athletic director recommended that Eustachy be fired.


Alabama has won six national football championships, but it can't seem to keep a coach lately and is under NCAA probation.


Reports emerged during the week that Price spent hundreds of dollars at a topless bar and, the next morning, a woman ordered about $1,000 of room service and charged it to his hotel bill.


The 57-year-old Price, his wife and the two sons he hired for the Alabama coaching staff sat with the media for a brief public session with university trustees Saturday.


After Witt announced the firing, a tearful Price was alternately apologetic and defiant in speaking to an auditorium packed with reporters and fans. He said he asked Witt for a second chance, but the president declined.


"I don't think the punishment fits the crime," Price said. "I strongly feel that I was the man that could have put this behind us. I think President Witt is making a mistake. He's not breaking the law, but he's making an error in judgment."


Witt called Price "a great coach, a good man," but the president added that Price failed to live up to responsibilities that come with the job of head coach at Alabama.


Before trustees went behind closed doors, pleas were made to retain Price.


"Everybody makes mistakes," quarterback Brodie Croyle said. "You can rest assured it won't happen again." He later hinted some players might transfer.


Seems a little harsh to me to fire a guy just for going to a strip club. Is he going to get rid of all the players as well, you can't tell me that college football players would not attend such an establishment? You would think he would be in more trouble with his wife!
