Re: Any injury updates?

Feeling the same pain here Ace. Hope Nick foles can still get them to the Super Bowl. Meanwhile it's back to Rhode Island
Saturday for the Charleston game. a big win would help ease the pain and worry about the Eagles.

Re: 12/6 | Alabama Crimson Tide | 8:00PM

Very unimpressed by Alabama and even less impressed by URI. Any outsider watching this game would probably think that URI is a very overrated team because that is the way they looked. In the first half they constantly forced up shots and never went up strong around the basket. Instead, they tried to...

Re: Alabama line

The line is now 2 1/2 or 3 on most sites now. I believe that the Rams can do what they did to Providence and turn them over 18- 20 times. Alabama is averaging 14 tos against lesser defenses. Rhody should win this game if they give a solid effort. The only concern is Alqabama's size, but Langevine's ...

Re: THE EARLY LINE U R I vs PC

Yes! i love it -3 1/2. Do I hear - 4. if you can give up just 3 points it might be a good bet. I don't know about
3 1/2 or 4. I was thinking like a 3 or 4 point win, so that doesn't leave any room for a win if it is 3 1/2 or 4.

The line has opened as URI - 2 1/2. seems like a pretty fair line, might go up or down a

The very early line on this one is a PICK''EM. I would expect that to change but it
really could lean either way. don't expect it to be more than two in either favor. Will
