Last year about this time, the fine people at Sol Republic sent me a pair of sick headphones to give away. Iceman won the contest which was something about the MAC Championship game. I hope that he likes them because they are pretty awesome for drowning out the lawn mower and, more importantly, the wife. Well, they gave me another pair to give away this year. Here is the promo for what you can win:
SOL REPUBLIC Tracks: A total steal at only $99, our virtually indestructible (they bend all the way backwards, frontwards and every which direction!) on-ear Tracks headphones start at $99 and deliver incredible sound quality at a great value. Perfect for all those seeking to spend $100 and under on a gift.
If you don’t think that you need or want headphones, bro, Christmas is coming up and I’m sure that you know someone who could use $100 headphones (that you spent nothing on). Feel free to check out some of Sol’s other products here, here, or maybe even here. How do you win?
Let’s see…Nebraska is at Michigan tomorrow so if you want the headphones from this fine site, all you have to do is nail the line:
1. Nebraska +7 or Michigan -7
2. Then nail the tie-breaker: Total yards by Jeremy Gallon (can not go over) That’s it. Post in the comments and I’ll announce the winner on Monday.
I had a nice and profitable weekend last week and I would like to keep it going. As a reminder, I don’t bet all of what I list here but they are numbers that look intriguing on Thursday morning.
Iowa -15 @ Purdue – This opened at -16.5 and is down to -15. I have no idea why. Is Drew Brees playing this week?
Minnesota -2.5 vs. Penn State – I am ALL IN on #KILLSTRONG
BYU +7.5 @ Wisconsin – I find this to be the most interesting game tomorrow (yes, even more so than ROLL DAMN TIDE vs. Toilet Chug). BYU is rolling right now. I’ll take those points all day.
Texas -6.5 @ West Virginia – The last I checked, Texas has their shit relatively together and WV is awful.
Notre Dame -4 @ Pittsburgh – As Drooler said that other day, Pitt interviewed FagNasty Fickell once so you know that they’re dumb and bad. I’m shocked that this line isn’t a touchdown plus.
Houston +11 @ Central Florida – This is a real nice game in a conference that no one cares about now that Louisville lost. This should be closer than Lee Corso’s experts think.
Tampa Bay +1 vs. Miami – This is my lock of the century. The Schiano Men vs. The Half N******! The winless Bucs get their first win.
Carolina +7 @ San Francisco – I don’t know if I buy the Panthers but their defense is great and should keep this one close.
Cincinnati PK @ Baltimore – We all saw last week that the Ravens are horrible.
MAC Glory Hole of the Week (6-2!!!) Western Michigan -2.5 @ Eastern Michigan – Unfortunately, this is the only MACtion of the weekend and, by rule, I have to make a pick. I would never pick Ron English unless I owned a cotton farm (no offense...count it). What’s Mr. Ace got for us?
Mr. Ace’s Hammers of the Week (now at 8-12 on the season!)
Making rookies pay for your ski trip? Richie Incognito is awfully niggardly.
NCAA: Auburn -7. I understand that Tennessee plays better at home, but that doesn't take away the fact that Mizzou and Bama outscored them 76-13 the last two weeks. Tennessee also happens to be down to their 3rd string QB.
NFL: Broncos -6.5(-120). A little extra vig on this one, but it's worth it. Broncos are coming off a bye and have had time to get ready for life without John Fox's heart valve. I don't believe in San Diego. Neither should you.
Moneyline: Tulane +255. I know G$ loves what UTSA is selling, but Tulane is the better team. I like Houston +335 as well.
That will do it for this week. There should be plenty to discuss today (the Hearts better not have fucking lost last night) AND I’m being generous. It doesn’t get much better than this.
