College Football News 7/15 : OSU Trolls and the Swoosh

College Football News and Rumors takes a peek at the lack of respect that the SEC is being given.  Oh it has not reach the level of the handicapper or even wagering so far.  To say that Ohio State with their glut of quality quarterbacks should be not the favorite for 2015 reeks of SEC bias.  Even they can recognize the value in other conferences.  However, shots were fired by the Big Ten whom are feeling their oats these days.  HRWager takes a look at two keys in college football.  Let us look at money and swagger in this edition of HRWager’s College Football News.

College Football News : Invasion of Alabama

Media Day in the SEC is not just a regional but a national event.  Alabama has a quintessential cast of characters that make annual appearances.  Heck, they have almost as many Bear Bryant impersonators as Vegas does Elvis’.  But today a different type of wind blew into Hoover, Alabama.  Mongoloids by the name of Moorer and Rivers are Buckeye diehards that came down from Ohio State country to chirp a little.  Arriving near 6AM, they were not subtle and settled into the front row.  With the last two national championships being outsourced, maybe the SEC might have a few rivals that are not teams in their own conference.

Nike, Michigan, and Little Baby Swoosh

A marriage made in heaven made Michigan the recipient of the largest sports apparel contract.  $169 million will the Wolverines net with $80 in apparel and close to $77M in cash.This dwarfs the next largest school which is Texas by almost double in value.  Not only that but look at the recent deal with the Gators of Florida.  The SEC school got less than half as well.  Pedigree and promise get the value up to this level so that we will all see GO Blue from not until the end of time.

So with money and confidence come bragging rights.  All they have to do is now produce on the field.  Better non-con records in football is a must.  Look for the changes to take place and prepare to tail the Titans of this conference for 2015.  Good fortune and we will talk again tomorrow here at TGF.

CFL Free Pick : Hamilton at Montreal 7/16

CFL Free Pick : Hamilton at Montreal 7/16

HRWager’s CFL Free Pick for looks at Hamilton (1-1) at Montreal (1-2).  A short work week and cross country travel put the Alouettes behind the eight ball for this one.  Hamilton got their by in Week Three and roll into Molson Stadium as an ATS beast.  What makes us think that they could continue this trend?  Read on with HRW as we break down this Thursday Night CFL game.

CFL Free Pick : Cato Exposed

Against an average team, the quarterback of Montreal derailed his team from getting a valuable road win.  A frantic struggle got them the cover but not the ML cover 25-23.  Cato threw two picks that absolutely killed any momentum they have.  Now this tired team gets the short day and travel back three time zones.  While it is true that they get a field go as a home dog, Montreal does not have the ground game necessary to deflect heat.  Look for a long day as the passing attack will continue to go through growing pains.

Heyday on Hamilton

CFL free Pick

  • 7-0 ATS
  • 16-5 ATS in the last twenty one games.

Not enough respect but is making them a road favorite warranted here.  They will have to have the ball possession passing attack hit over seventy percent again.  Why?  Because this team is even worse at rushing than Montreal.  Putrid numbers will ensure that more than average amount of plays will be ran in this one.

The total is 53.  This proposition could go either way and should be avoided.  They could score a point a minute or be bogged down in mid field all day long.  Instead, trust Hamilton’s pedigree and the short work week.  A second half surge will put Hamilton over the edge in this one.  The HRWager Free Pick of the Day has the Tiger Cats -3.  Good fortune in this and we will see you next time here at HRW.
