NC State vs Notre Dame, What happened to the luster?

During NC State's first football game of the year against the mighty juggernaut 

William & Mary, the main topic of conversation was overwhelmingly focused 

on the up coming game against the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame.

Tickets were being sold for 5 and 6 times there face value and thoughts of just

 as many people in the parking lot tailgating as fans being in the game was a 

given.

What State fans didn't factor was Notre Dame (a preseason top 25 team at the

beginning of the year) would start out 2-3 and take the national spotlight 

off this game which was given a noon kickoff on sat.

WHATS THE LINE, AND WHO'S GONNA WIN??

The Line NC State -2.5 

Normally I would tell you to take Notre Dame and take the points, because on

 a dry track, the Fighting Irish have too much talent at the skill positions and on the 

offensive line for State to handle (they scored 55 at Syracuse last week on the
 
road).  On the other hand, State has a solid running game with Matt Dayes  

(437 yds rushing) to go along with QB Ryan Finley (1018 passing and 0 int)

 to take advantage of poor field conditions and grind out a victory.

State has a great chance to pull off a huge signature win and give them some

momentum going into what could be called a murderers row schedule 

including games against Florida State, Clemson, and Louisville.



Enjoy the Rain, I mean the Game everyone,

Super Bowl 50: Cam vs Peyton

Who will win Super Bowl 50 comes down to old vs new. Cam Newton, the newly minted MVP vs Peyton Manning, 39 and way smarter than he is talented now then he was in his prime, trying too ride off into the sunset with a Super Bowl trophy. The key to this game will be the Broncos defense and Von Miller vs the Panther's offense with Cam Newton's combination of his improved passing game and making plays with his feet. Unless Manning can matriculate (late great Hank Stram, Super Bowl 4) the ball down the field and take a lot time off the clock while scoring, the Panthers quick strike offense will be too much to handle and tire out the Broncos defense.

Take the Panther's plus 5.5 and this game should easily top the 43.5 O/U (Super Bowls tend to be high scoring).

 Enjoy the game and remember kids, Gamble Responsibly :)

Baylor gives Michigan State a Christmas gift on New Years Day

  Michigan State 42 Baylor 41:

 Yes Baylor can blame the stupid penalties on losing the game but when there is 2:30 seconds left in the game they snapped the ball at least twice with double digit time left on the play clock with the game clock running. 

THAT'S WHAT COST THEM THE GAME, WHILE BRILES IS STANDING THERE WITH HIS THUMP UP HIS BUTT WHILE IN THERE HURRY UP OFFENSE.......MINDLESS.

 P.S. the Spartens scored with 17 seconds left in the game.

Happy New Year

First NFL Sunday Bears vs Bills, "Super Bowl preview"!!!!

The Bears vs Bills Sunday 1 pm et. "WILL NOT" be a Super Bowl preview this year, as a matter of fact who ever loses this game could be looking at a long season.

The Bears come into this game with one of the best offenses especially at the skill positions.

 Jay Cutler has no excuses this year with Matt Forte at RB, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery (future star) at WR and a offensive line coming into its own. The problem for the Bears this year and u might not of heard this in decades is there defense as Charles Barkley says is Terrrrrrrible.

The Bears signed DE Jerald Allen and with Lance Briggs back healthy at LB to go along with Charles Tillman at DB the Bears three best defensive players are in there 30's.

To say the least, the rest of the kids on Defense better step up (Just don't watch the Seattle preseason game, Yikesssss).

Prediction: 9-7  I hope, they have a tough road schedule.

Game Prediction: The Bears are at home and are 7.5 point favorites. If they put enough pressure on Bills second year QB E. J. Manuel who is still a bit shaky out there and double team rookie wideout and number one pick Sammy Watkins, The Bears should win on opening day in NFL.

Man that sure sounds good (Opening Day In The NFL).

Enjoy the games everyone

The Broncos vs the Seahawks take Manning in Super Bowl XLVlll

 Super Bowl XLVlll  between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks will be decided because of two things. The temperature which will be in the mid 40's and Peyton Manning's passing.

1.  (The Weather) : The temperature at game time will be in the mid 40's which is huge for the Broncos. Peyton Manning playing in cold weather (under 32 degrees) has a losing record and a much lower passer rating. There will not be a wind factor either, which will be huge for Manning to unleash his full passing game on Richard Sherman and the Seattle.

2. (Manning's passing game) : Peyton  Manning's crossing routes and drag routes passing game will confuse The Seahawks tight, bump and run secondary. Running back Knowshon Moreno should play a big roll in this game between running the ball and catching screen passes out of the backfield.

Seattle's only chance in this game is to get to Peyton Manning with there pass rush, which would hurry Manning's passes and give the Seahawks secondary a chance to make a play.

My pick Broncos 42 Seattle 28.

line: Broncos +2 total points 48

NFC & AFC TITLE GAMES TODAY AND THE WINNER'S ARE?

Four teams enter, two teams leave to play in Super Bowl XLV111 today with the Broncos vs the Patriots at 3:00 et then the Seahawks vs the 49ers at 6:30 et.

I'm going with the home teams today (Denver and Seattle) because at the end of the day whether they were on the road or at home they are the two best teams.

First game Broncos +5.5 over under 56. This game comes down to one thing, the Broncos have a way better receiving core then the Patriots (less Rob Gronkowski). Payton Manning shrugs off some playoff failures of the past and has a big day against a soft Patriots secondary in a shoot out. Take the over........

Second game Seahawks + 3.5 over under 40. The Seahawks win this game because of their defense. Their corners and safeties are the best in the league as a unit and will cause Colin Kaepernick to force some throws and get some pics. Both teams must keep these QB's in the pocket and not let them make plays with there feet, especially on third down. Take the over.........

DA COACH SAYS DA BEARS WIN THE SUPER BOWL THIS YEAR BY 50!!!!!!

Da Bears start there quest to Super Bowl glory today at 1pm est against the Cincinnati Bengals. I'm predicting Da Bears will win easily today by 40 to 50 points with the third string quarterback playing most of the 4th qtr so as to not run up the score into the 80's.

With Jay (future Super Bowl MVP) Cutler throwing 60 plus td's to Brandon Marshall and Matt Forte running for a league record 2500 yards this year, the Bears defense will only be on the field for less then fifteen minutes a game this year, so not having Brian (future HOF) Urlacher won't be a problem.

People U can take this prediction to the bank. I have checked with Da Coach and he agrees with me completely, except he says Cutler will trow 100 Td's to Brandon Marshall (will see God willing).

So enjoy the season everybody but know Da Bears are the class of the NFL, so says Schabes and Da Coach.

C.J. F-ing Leslie NBA bound? What a joke......

After today's game, C.J. (F Bomb) Leslie is not only not ready for the NBA, but he's also barely good enough to play for State. If he goes pro after this year the only league he will be playing in next year starts with the 4th letter of the alphabet.

He is a whiny little child, that when he starts a game bad, you know its going to do nothing but go down hill from there.

Lets also give a big wolkpack thanks to Richard Howell for his awful play yesterday and getting in foul trouble. I especially liked the foul he commited 35 ft from the basket, chasing around Florida States point guard (can we say this team is a little undisciplined).

The combined stat line for Howell and Leslie yesterday was 5-11 shooting and a game changing 5-13 from the free throw line (they lost by 4).

So unless Maryland beats Virginia on the road, (Virginia is 8-0 at home in ACC play this year) NC State which was ranked 6th in the country to start the year, will be playing in the thursday play in games, to get to the quarter finals. Just a tidbit no team has ever won four games in four days in ACC tournament history.

I know there going to make the NCAA tournament no matter what happens in the ACC tournament, but I gotta tell you yesterday was one hell of a disappointing game, that they should of won......
