With the Kessler pick, I'm sure that Cleveland was in danger of getting two Millen grades in one Draft.. Has it ever been done before? Two Millens in one Draft? Anyway, I'm really proud of the Bears and Jaguars; they seem to know what they are doing. The Colts have greatly improved also; job security on a short leash works wonders sometimes. What about Romeo Okwara out of Notre Dame (3-4 DE)? Could this kid from Nigeria be a good pick? Also could the fall of Andrew Billings be explained? Instead of Niagra Falls and the 4 falls of Buffalo, we have the Billings falls.
Good results overall yesterday in sports. MLB: Closed and won a par with the Cubs -1.5 RL -135. Got another win win par with Balt game over and Seattle last night. I win two start up par plays..thank you Mets game Over and Rays game Under. Not posted (must have skipped it) but I do lose one par with the Under in the Cards game. NBA: Won another basketball teaser with Portland -2 last night...(Whew!) NHL In a well played game I lose a par with the Blues loss, albeit slightly hedged to take some of the sting out of the defeat. Congrats to winners and back later with some plays.

Ohio State (9-2) at Michigan (5-6) Line: Ohio State by 11.5. Saturday, 12:00 ET
It's time for my crappy college picks! Don't waste time with stocks, bonds and IRAs! Just fade my college picks and send your kids to college with the money you can win betting against me!
Same old story - Ohio State has beaten Michigan every year since 2003. The Wolverines are a disgrace; they let Wisconsin rip off 10 yards per rush at will last week. It was a horrific effort to say the least.
Prediction: Ohio State 34, Michigan 14 Ohio State -11.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220 (Congrats if you had OSU -10.5)
Minnesota (6-5) at Iowa (9-2) Line: Iowa by 10. Saturday, 12:00 ET
This Iowa team has to be flat after putting everything into that Ohio State game, right? The Hawkeyes suck as big favorites anyway because they don't have enough offensive firepower.
Prediction: Iowa 13, Minnesota 10 Minnesota +10 (4 Units) -- Incorrect; -$440 (Congrats if you had Minnesota +12.5)
Wisconsin (8-2) at Northwestern (7-4) Line: Wisconsin by 7. Saturday, 3:30 ET
Against its 1-A opponents, Wisconsin has just two wins by 8-plus points. Northwestern usually does well as an underdog (4-2 ATS). I like the points.
Purdue (4-7) at Indiana (4-7) Line: Purdue by 3. Saturday, 3:30 ET
Purdue's bowl dreams were crushed in a 40-37 loss to Michigan State last week. Because this game is meaningless, I can't see them getting up for a feisty Indiana squad that will be looking for revenge after losing to the Boilermakers 62-10 last year.
