What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
Here we are…Saturdaius Tandem…the fourteenth and final of the Twelve Greatest Saturdays of the Year. Yeah, I know the numbers don’t jibe, but what else would you expect? We now have a college football world where the B1G Ten has fourteen teams (soon to be at least sixteen with two new members coming from California of all places), there’s soon to be nothing “big” about the Big 12, with Texas and Oklahoma shuffling off to the SEC, and the wacky Pac-12 has the only honest total…until USC and UCLA trade in the Golden State’s sunshine for road games in November in Wisconsin, Michigan, and
West Siberia Minnesota.
Speaking of number’s, Saturdaius Tandem also represents the last time we look at the level of the J-Dub Gambling Challenge Bankroll. The gambling gods smiled on the bankroll yet again; I’m riding a riding a “bull” market heading into the conclusion of the regular season. Last week, cold weather in the Midwest led to some tasty unders, and some even more delicious spreads which were just a smidge too fat, and I gobbled those up to the tune of $858. That leaves the total heading into Saturdaius Tandem at $7,422 – up from the original $5K.
But the danger of Saturdaius Tandem lies in the fact its the perfect chance to give back all those gains. The “bull” market can become “bearish” in a big hurry, and there’s only one way to find out which way I’m going to end up….
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.
If you think you have a gambling problem, go find the 800 number on your own. I’m not a goddamn public service announcement.
Since I live in the heart of Big Ten country, almost literally in the shadow of Ross-Ade stadium, those around me who know I’m a gambler will invariably ask me about the Boilermakers, so I might as well bet on them…

Introduced by our own guest columnist King George VI (the grandfather of the current King Charles III), this feature is all about the line of the week that’s so outrageous it’s almost as crazy as we Americans find the idea of a monarch.
Georgia Tech at Georgia (-36) O/U 49 $200 Over
We went back to the very first college football game in 1869, and the premise is simple…you’re the champ until somebody beats you. The current champion is the Washington Huskies
Washington (-1.5) at Washington State O/U 60
It’s like the game says…the idea is to hang on to your cash. That means this is the “big play” of the week; the one that should make today “Payday.”
