    Here we go, I’m 8/10 last week and 53/92 $1650/$1000 so far.

    MIT wins the Havard-Yale game. This is a great read.

    #22 Northwestern at Minnesota – Sat, Nov 17, 12:00 PM ET – The Cats are GETTING 2 on the road at the Golden Gophers. They have to beat this spread.

    Michigan State at Nebraska – Sat, Nov 17, 12:00 PM ET – Sparty is giving 2, they beat this spread on the road in Lincoln

    Pittsburgh at Wake Forest – Sat, Nov 17, 12:00 PM ET – My Beloved Panthers are giving the Demon Deacons a touchdown on the road, PITT runs it down their throats and beats this spread.

    #12 Syracuse at #3 Notre Dame – Sat, Nov 17, 2:30 PM ET – Big test for those Good Catholic Boys who are hosting the Orangemen (Protestant Northern Irish much?) 😆 anyway…Syracuse is getting 10 and they have a pretty good team and can upset the Irish. I don’t think the Irish cover.

    #9 West Virginia at Oklahoma State – Sat, Nov 17, 3:30 PM ET – ‘Neers are giving 5 and beat that spread.

    #20 Boston College at Florida State – Sat, Nov 17, 3:30 PM ET – BC hates the ‘Noles. They are giving FSU 2. BC has a great win on the road and covers.

    Stanford at California – Sat, Nov 17, 7:30 PM ET – The Tree is visiting The Berkeley Bears and the Tree is a 2 point favorite. The Tree covers and wins on the road. Sorry, Barbarian.

    #24 Cincinnati at #11 UCF – Sat, Nov 17, 8:00 PM ET – Oddly, there are no lines reported on this game at all. UCF wins.

    #16 Iowa State at #15 Texas – Sat, Nov 17, 8:00 PM ET – Iowa State are getting 3 from the Longhorns who win cover this act of generosity.

    Arizona at #8 Washington State – Sat, Nov 17, 10:30 PM ET – ‘Zona is a 10 point dog, The Cougars beat this spread.

    the all blacks are at ireland today…i predict an Irish win! NZ looked sloppy against England and the Irish are probably the number 2 team in the world right now

      From the previous thread, because it demands a genuinely honest answer.

      @ eaglesoars:
      What?

      since I posted that question, I’ve learned that it was American blacks that invented rock and roll, but Trump honored the white guy.

      (I mean, srsly? blues, jazz, yes. rock and roll? bull)

      African American’s did NOT invent Rock and Roll, nor did the “Invent” Jazz or the Blues.

      All three forms of contemporary music were “American” collaborations between many ethnic groups.

      Jazz had its roots in African tribal music, but, and I cannot stress this enough, only its most basic and fundamental roots. To suggest otherwise is either due to having virtually no understanding of American history, or outright dishonest and racists opinions of Jazz, The Blues and Rock and Rolls actual origins.

      Jazz owes its entire existence to a group of individuals in the Louisiana bayou/Mississippi Delta area known as the Creole. They were the offspring of White French settlers and African Slaves who were not slaves themselves. They were well educated musicians of high social standing until after the Civil War. When I say well educated, that includes the fact that they were educated and trained in Classical Music.

      After the Civil War, they lost their social status as a consequence of the “Reconstruction”. Where upon they spread out around the country to places like Kansas City, Chicago and Detroit where the Jazz that they had had a major role in creating was transformed into the Blues.

      The entire time that Jazz and the Blues were being evolved, White American’s played a major role in both of their developments. As it was being from its very beginning “Appropriated” by white musicians who added their own influences to it.

      Rock and Roll, is in fact a combination of jazz, blues, gospel, country, and European folk music.

      Sorry for the “Rant” however, this is a subject that I am quiet well educated on and frankly, more than a little disgusted by how African American’s behave regarding.

      @ USA Today
      this article bemoans our lack of curiosity about Islamic contributions to America.
      Guess who the prime culprit is? Come on, Trump! It’s his fault.
      The article is awkward and pure propaganda.

      in one of the greatest rugby matches that i have ever seen….

      THE IRISH beat the reigning world #1 NZ all blacks at home 16-9

      this was rugby at its finest most elegant violence. hard fought and clean.

      Ireland played well and took all their chances. The ABs looked out of sorts with handling errors aplenty. The end came after full time with a Rotallick fumble.

      Sums it up .

      Well done Ireland!

      The temperature and the time.

      LOL I kind of lost it tonight. Can’t remember what time I put it in the oven and currently oven is set at 325

      Turned oven down to 250 and going to leave it in there another two hours.

      Why did I post this on Blogmocracy?

      LOL, so I can look at my post later tonight to see at what time my chicken will be done!

      That is the actual truth. A pious Muslim that is true to the Koran cannot believe in the constitutional liberties of the American Republic. I’m pretty sure that Thomas Jefferson was not supporting Sharia.

      It seems it started with student protests about something and the gov’t unleashed the ‘death squads’. This is the main thread I can find. This started about 3 days ago and the people are being slaughtered w/machetes. There are some horrific photos but you have to click to see them, so you don’t have to if it’s too much.
