What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
One of the best things about gambling on college football is you get a perspective which is significantly different than those of non-gamblers. This became apparent to me last week as I was delighting in yet another Stoops-led Oklahoma big-game loss. The usual obnoxious nature of Sooner fans makes their tears so much sweeter, and just as I was getting ready to revel in them, I came to a horrible realization.
I bet on teams I don’t like all the time; the heart wants what it wants, but business is business. So, as I’m cursing all things Sooner, it dawns on me that other gamblers probably have many similar experiences; ones that shape those unique perspectives.
In order to draw that out, we hired a psychic to conduct seances to reach into the afterlife to talk to two legendary game show hosts. First, we asked “The Match Game’s” Gene Rayburn to give us ten of his famous “fill-in-the-blank” style questions which would be of particular interest to college football gamblers.
So, fill in your “blanks,” and tune in again next week when we will have the original “Family Feud” host Richard Dawson with your answers.
#1) If I had to bet on a winner for the Heisman today, my money would be on ___________.
#2) The word a gambler would most likely use to describe Notre Dame is ___________.
#3) The best team in the B1G Ten not called Ohio State is ________.
#4) As of right now, the “Power Five” conference most deserving of having it’s champion left out of the play-off is the __________.
#5) The best team in the SEC East not called Georgia is ________.
#6) The “traditional power” program which has had the biggest drop-off is __________.
#7) The team which will make the college football play-off which nobody is talking about now is ________.
#8 ) The “non-Power Five” team which will be playing on New’s Day is ________.
#9) The best team in the SEC West not called Alabama is _________.
#10) The team that screws me the most when it comes to gambling is _________.
BONUS QUESTION: Alabama will lose to _________.
Fill in the blanks in the comment section or email your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org. Then tune in next week when you get to find out what the survey said. In the meantime, let’s get ready to gamble.
LEGAL DISCLAIMER (mandated by our very own Small Town Pizza Lawyer):
Thanks to the Supreme Court, gambling is no longer illegal at Bushwood, sir. However, the Supreme Court can’t really help me unless one of them is willing to keep Mrs. J-Dub from braining me with a cast-iron skillet if she found out how many dimes I’m dropping on college football. That means that as far as she knows, all wagers are mythical in nature and this is in no way, shape, or form a gambling advice column. In other words, if you lose your own “real” money, that’s nobody’s fault but yours, so don’t yell at me when we meet at the plasma center on Monday.
The Dubsism College Football Heavyweight Champ Bet:

$50 Ohio State
J-Dub’s Payday of the Week:

I really felt like I should say something witty here, you know, answer your questions and all, but instead decided to just leave it ________.
(FYI: I took a 16:1 stab on Grier to win the Heisman at the beginning of the season)
