CFB Power 5 – Week 12

The end is near. No, not the world, as far as I know. But three things are nearing their finale. Sadly, the college football regular season. Monahan pregnancy Quite possibly DFS college sports We are nearing the biggest rivalry week of the year (next week) in the college football season. That’s also when my favorite holiday […]

CFB Power 5 – Week 11

There are two narratives for this week’s Power 5 selections. The first involves the Big 12. The second involves my picks – there are way more than usual. So, the Big 12. It’s about to get really good. Last week, Oklahoma St. knocked off TCU in Stillwater. I feel no one is really talking about […]

What Happened in Vegas? – Week 9

For those of you that followed my BvP baseball write-ups this past season, you might remember I have a baby on the way. Back in the day, it seemed like her entry into this world seem so far away. Well, that time is nearing, any day now actually. We are at full term now, and […]

CFB Power 5 – Week 10

One of the best plays you will ever see that was really never meant to be… Knees were down, penalties were missed…in all, it was an ugly affair as Miami pulled its best Cal-Stanford impersonation (minus the band on the field) to defeat Duke. It’s one of the wilder plays you will ever see and […]

What Happened in Vegas? – Week 8

Strike up the greatest farewell song of all time… Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road…sounds about right when reflecting on Week 8 in the NFL. Your fantasy teams might be hurting and you might have been burned in DFS thanks to all the injuries. So let’s pause for a moment of silence and […]

CFB Power 5 – Week 9

It’s nice to see J.T. Barrett back in the fold. It took 8 weeks for Urban Meyer to finally come to his senses, giving Barrett the starting nod this past week. After a magical 3-game run for Cardale Jones that led to a Buckeye National Title, the fantasia has faded. The top of the Big […]

What Happened in Vegas? – Week 7

Week 8 will see one of the remaining undefeated teams take a bow. In the Mile High City, Peyton Manning and the Broncos welcome in Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Both teams are looking to stay undefeated. Barring a tie (yea, that’s not happening), one team will come away unscathed, while the other will cry wee […]

BvP for MVP – 7-7-15 – “Late” Only

There is a two-game set to be played this afternoon, but I am going to skip over that and just do a “late” version of my BvP picks. I absolutely love today’s slate of games, not just for BvP purposes. There are some salivating matchups between lefty pitchers and right-handed pitchers. We get some potential […]
