C. "B." Wells got hurt. USC took notice. Jeremy Maclin got hurt, too, but he's going to be o.k.
Several big name teams took a dive, including Michigan (I called that!), Clemson and Virginia Tech. All three got beat by better teams.
Some big name teams had close calls to no-name schools: Maryland barely beat Delaware and Arkansas State needed some luck to squeeze past their opponent.
UT looks completely different than last year, particularly the offensive line. Colt McCoy had better numbers than Tim Tebow, but unfortunately Lamarr Houston had more arrests than Tim Tebow (1-0). Matthew "Dude" McCaunahey was interviewed at halftime of our game and appeared to have had more beers than Tim Tebow (and even more than Lamarr Houston) but not more than Howard Schnellenberger. Speaking of which, wtf was FAU running when they had the big fumble in the 1Q? Maybe it was a screen, but if so, I can't figure out who was the intended receiver. All I could see was three UT lineman running untouched into the backfield.
I ran a $100 deposit into Pokerstars from a while ago into $560. In one sitting a couple weeks ago, I blew all $560. It was $1-$2, and I bought $80 seven times and busted out seven times. KK v AA, JJ v KK, AK v KK, etc. I was getting killed. My biggest weakness at the poker table is my inability to leave a table when losing. This is particuarly dangerous when the reason that I am losing is that the opponents are better than I. I just get emotionally attached to a game. That, and I want to exact revenge on teh bastards that have my money. I really need to get over this. If I can, then I have a chance of being a really good poker player not sucking.
Did you see last week's episode of WSOP? It was a bit of a snoozer, but there was a lot of Hellmuth coverage, which is always entertaining. Although I watch the WSOP on ESPN, I have to admit that it kinda sucks. This was particularly apparent last week when I watched an episode of High Stakes Poker right after the WSOP. The analysis by Gabe Kaplan is fantanstic. Contrast it with Norman Chad, who pointed out that a player raised with T8o but folded KJs. Un, yeah, but in the first instance (T8o), he raised a pot after being folded to on the button. In the second (KJs), the pot had been raised and re-raised and he was out of position. (I may have the facts slightly off, but I deleted the episode already...that's the gist of it at least). Gabe would not have missed that one.
