No sense talking about it - it will just relive it. Time to start watch Izzo work
his magic through the Big Ten and NCAA tourney.
The BBofG had a good day with the MegaBets but not in the pool. In the pool, I was hoping for a least one or two upsets but they didn't happen and now I am out of the money again.
The MegaBets went 2-0 though as:
Wisconsin +3 vs TCU - TCU and Wisconsin played a tight game. It started out looking like it would be a high scoring battle as both teams scored on their first two possessions with TCU leading at the end of the 1st quarter 14-10. But then the defenses stiffened until WI kicked a FG as time ran out at the end of the half trailing 13-14.
TCU opened the second half with a 71 TD scoring drive to take a 21-13 lead which held until deep into the final quarter. With 7:32 left the Badgers - starting at their own 32 (their best starting position in the second half) went on a
beautiful 10 play 73 yard TD scoring drive. But TCU LB Tank Carder knocked down what would have been the tying 2 point PAT. Bucky's onside kick failed and the Frogs bled the clock to win 21-19 but failed to cover the 3 point spread WIN
Meanwhile the Curse of the Stache continued as his replacement Mike Haywood with arrested for domestic violence. When the charge was increased to a felony he was fired.
With Maryland's Big Ralph let go - the NCAA determined that they were underrepresented by obese coaches and are rumored to be encouraging Florida to bring in Charlie Weiss as OC.
Mega Bets Week 18 Part Seven:
Too many goofy angles this week in the pros so I am going to limit my losses by going with
Detroit / Minnesota Under 42 - With Joe Webb expected to start at QB for the Vikes and Detroit WR Calvin Johnson questionable due to his ankles - I'll go with two good defenses keeping the scoring low. Wait - did I just put the words Lions and good defense in the same sentence. Must have partied a little more than I thought yesterday
