College Football Weekend

Workout notes: weights, 3 mile run, 2 mile hill walk (treadmill)

weights: rotator cuff, 5 sets of 10 pull ups,
incline press: 10 x 135, 7 x 150, 10 x 140
military: seated, supported: 2 sets of 12 x 50, then 10 x 40 standing (dumbbells)
rows: 2 sets of 10 x 50 dumbbell (each arm), 10 x 110 (machine)

run: treadmill, 5K in 31:30 (5.2 mph, up by .1 every 2 minutes)
walk: treadmill: 2 miles in 29:40: hill (1-8 in 20, then 1-4 in 10)

Pretty basic.

College football:
Ohio State favored by 16-17 at Illinois: part of me thinks that this will look a lot like the Wisconsin game. Then again, Ohio State is fighting for a playoff spot and style points will count. Call it 35-17 and OSU covers. I’ll be at this one.

Navy favored by 20 over SMU SMU is a bad team and Navy is strong. But Navy has to have a bad game sometime; they pasted Memphis on the road and still face Tulsa, Houston on the road and Army..and possibly a game in the AAC championship game. Pick Navy to win, but SMU might well keep it..well, not “close” but 30-14’ish. Navy to win, SMU covers?

West Virginia favored by 8 over Texas Texas has actually performed comparably against the teams that West Virginia lost to; in fact, slightly better. But Texas has been a horrible, absolutely horrible road team: 38-3, 50-10, 24-0 losses; the latter to a not-so-good Iowa State team. Texas lays another egg: 27-3?

Wake Forrest at Notre Dame: ND favored by 27 Sounds about right; ND is rolling and Wake isn’t very good. 38-0 Irish.

Summary: Straight up: Ohio State, Navy, West Virginia, Notre Dame.
Spread: Ohio State, SMU, West Virginia, Notre Dame.

NFL note: Got tickets for the Bears vs. Rams. Rams are favored by 7. That sounds about right; neither team is a ball of fire so I’ll go with the home team. Call it 24-17 Rams, though it wouldn’t be a monumental upset if the Bears won.

I think that this is my first “College/Pro” football double weekend since I caught Texas-Oklahoma and Dallas-San Francisco in 1989.

Personal Football note: I played offensive tackle in high school. Yeah, I got a holding call or two (or three); I didn’t use my feet well. But I don’t think that I ever did this…(and this was NOT called)
