BCS Championship Report Summary
(OHIO STATE VS. LSU) And now...The game we all have been waiting for...The Top 2 teams in the nation playing in the BCS Championship game!! Ya right! The Big 10`s record is only 3-4 to this point this Bowl season, with the only team that beat Ohio State during the regular season gettin` dusted in the Rose Bowl! O `Ya, and of the 2 teams that beat LSU this season...and I stress, "2 teams that beat LSU this season"! Arkansas got taken to the wood-shed against Missouri in the Cotton Bowl, and Kentucky barely squeaked out a win against a team missing over 20 players due to suspension`s and injuries! We waited all year for this? Whatever...It`s time for a playoff like in the Football Championship Subdivision! Ohio State entered this game with a losing Bowl record, and LSU entered it just 19-18-1 in Bowls. Ohio State was here last season and got mauled by Florida 14-41. The Big Swiss and The Duke were eyeing Ohio State who entered the game covering 5 of their last 7 games and wanted to finish the job after last years loss. Meanwhile, on the other side of the ball..Louisiana State entered the game a dismal 5-7-2 Against The Spread this season. This game was believed by many, to be a test of speed. After last season, Ohio state believed they were up to the task, and after jumping out to a 10-0 lead it looked as if they may have found the answer. LSU was just to much to handle though, and the Ohio state loss lands them at an 0-9 overall record in Bowl games against the SEC, and the Big 10 at 3-5 in Bowls this season. Ohio State managed only 24 points all game and that proved not to be enough against an LSU team that only had 2 games this season in which they scored less than 30 points. Twice this season LSU scored 28. Once against S. Carolina and again against Florida in October, beating them both SU but failing to cover. Once again, the Big 10 failed to follow through which gave Big Swiss, and The Duke the loss. For those of you who follow the NCAA, stay tuned. Football Services intend`s to offer much more information on college football to our follower`s during the off-season and into next season. Thank everyone for their support in our 1st full season online, and check back often. We will be working on, and updating this site all summer long. Remember, "Football Services handicappers are working this off-season, TO PUT YOU ON NEXT SEASON".
Thank you for your support. The Duke, The Dolphin, and Big Swiss.
NCAA Orange Bowl Report Summary
(KANSAS VS. VIRGINIA TECH) Virginia Tech is no newbie to bowl games as they have gone to one for 15 seasons in a row now! Meanwhile, Kansas has gone bowling just 5 times over that same span and had never won a Bowl Championship Series game until this season. Kansas, who finished just 6-6 last season was lead by Mark Mangino who until this season had just a 25-35 career record and a 1-1 Bowl record. He got things rolling this season however as the Jayhawks ripped off a 12-1 record including their 1st ever BCS win. Kansas` only loss this season came to Missouri, handing Mizzou the Big 12 North Division Title and sending them to the conference title game where they got beaten by Oklahoma. Kansas played one of the easiest schedules in the FBS this season, compared to Virgina Tech who played one of the toughest including having played 6 teams that got Bowl Bids. Virginia tech simply turned the ball over too much to win, throwing 3 interceptions. One of which was returned for a touchdown. The Hokies handed Kansas 17 points off turnovers which ended up deciding not only their fate, but also Big Swiss` and The Duke`s. The Big Swiss had his 5* BOWL GOY on Virginia Tech and The Duke had a 3* regular out on the Hokies, landing them both with losses on the upset.
NCAA Fiesta Bowl Report Summary
(WEST VIRGINIA VS. OKLAHOMA) Oklahoma came into this game on a dismal 3-6 ATS run after starting the season 4-0 ATS. While Oklahoma had a 24-15-1 bowl record to this point, Stoops was 4-4 in bowl games including losing 4 consecutive BCS Bowls. Both teams seemed to lack discipline as it, "snowed laundry" all day. This could be understandable from a West Virginia team minus their head coach Rich Rodriguez who left for Michigan last month to replace the retiring Lloyd Carr, but it seemed out of the ordinary for a Bob Stoops team in a game of this importance to have just as many penalties as 1st downs at half with 6. Once again we had a bowl team being led by an interim coach in Bill Stewart at W. Virginia. He was familiar with the program being an assistant at West Virginia for some time and was awarded the Head Coach position after the win over Oklahoma. The same win that gives interim coaches their first win on the Bowl season to this point, and gives The Dolphin a 3* loss.
NCAA Sugar Bowl Report Summary
(HAWAII VS. GEORGIA) The Duke had Georgia for a regular play to wrap up his New Year`s day selection`s for Football Services VIP handicapping service. Georgia faced a Hawaii team that was unbeaten during the regular season going 12-0. This was`nt Honolulu however, and Georgia was like nothing Hawaii had seen all season. Hawaii played 2 unlined games this season at home, one verse Northern Colorado and the other against Charleston Southern. Georgia would prove to be no Charleston Southern. Hawaii with their highest scoring Offense in the nation, never even got a sniff and failed to even get a Touchdown until the middle of the 4th quarter. That touchdown was`nt even thrown by Heisman candidate Colt Brennan as he went out in the 4Q after getting beaten up all day. Hawaii was just 2-3 ATS away from home this season, and Georgia was the first team Hawaii has seen this season that is currently in the top 25. To put it simple, they were never "tested" until now. Meanwhile, Georgia played 3 teams rated in the top 25 and beat 2 of them by an average of over 18 points. Georgia came in on a roll winning and covering their last 3 in a row as this was basically a blowout waiting to happen. The Duke seen it coming though and just like the Georgia Bulldogs he got the win on New Years day.
NCAA Rose Bowl Report Summary
(ILLINOIS VS. USC) USC...we`ll..now their healthy...and should have probably been in the BCS Championship game. The Big Swiss only had 2 plays out on New Years Day. One was a 3* on Illinois. The Big Swiss believed they could run the ball and control the tempo of the game. When it became obvious Illinois could`nt run the ball, Big Swiss knew they had to at least protect it or it could be a long day. Illinois was in it until the 3Q and appeared they had a chance at the upset until Jacob Willis fumbled as he was about to score and USC recovered it. A few plays later Booty threw a lateral that was scooped up and taken 65 yards by Joe McKnight. A few plays later USC scored, and it was all USC from then on out. The Illinois loss brought their 3 game SU and ATS winning streak to an end and gave Big Swiss the loss. Zook has Illinois on the right track, and Big Swiss believes they are a lot better than their play showed. Big Swiss will have his eye on Illinois next season.
NCAA Gator Bowl Report Summary
(TEXAS TECH. VS. VIRGINIA) This was the first Bowl Game this season in which we had handicappers from our VIP Service on different sides of the ball. While The Dolphin and Big Swiss both liked the underdog in the Virginia Cavaliers, The Duke had a play on Texas Tech. Big Swiss had his 4* Top Play of the day on Virginia and The Dolphin had a 3* Regular Play on Virginia. The Duke had a 3* Regular Play on Texas Tech as almost a touchdown favorite. Both teams were 9-4 on the season with Virginia being ranked #21 in the nation. Virginia had a 14 point lead at half, but squandered it away giving up 17 points in the 4Q including a field goal with under a minute left that cost them the straight up win. Texas Tech may have got the SU win but they failed to cover, giving Big Swiss and The Dolphin the win, and The Duke a loss.
NCAA Capital One Bowl Report Summary
(MICHIGAN VS. FLORIDA) Hat`s off to Michigan. They fought back from one of the biggest upsets in NCAA Football history in their season opener to end the season beating Florida and Heisman trophy winner Tim Tebow in The Capital One Bowl 41-35. Michigan was a totally different team this season when healthy, and The Duke recognized it. Add onto that the retirement of Lloyd Carr after this season, and you had an upset in the making. To make things even worse for Florida, Tebow was playing with a broken bone in his non-throwing hand and faced pressure all day. He still threw for 3 Touchdowns and ran for 1, but it was`nt enough. Although Florida was in it the whole game, Tebow had a 4 and out late in the 4Q to seal their fate. Michigan got the SU Win despite being Double Digit dogs, and The Duke got another 3 star win for Football Services VIP Service member`s.
NCAA Cotton Bowl Report Summary
(MISSOURI VS. ARKANSAS) Missouri came into the bowl covering 9 of their last 12 lined games including the Big 12 Championship in which they got blasted by Oklahoma. They were even ranked #1 after beating Kansas in their season finale, but after the Oklahoma game ended up in the Cotton Bowl facing Heisman runner-up Darren McFadden and the Razorbacks. At first, Arkansas appeared to be a tough foe as they also had covered 5 of their last 6 including beating LSU at home in their final regular season game despite being DDD. Thing`s changed however as Arkansas was being led by interim coach Bobby Petrino, as Houston Nutt stepped down in late November. O Ya, teams with interim coaches are 0-5 to this point this bowl season, and The Duke got the 3* Win as he rode Mizzou to the bank.
NCAA Chick-Fil-A Bowl Report Summary
(AUBURN VS. CLEMSON) The Duke came in with a 3* on Clemson in "The Battle Of The Tigers". Tommy Tuberville came into the game with a 5-3 bowl record and covered 6 of his last 8 lined regular season games. Tommy Bowden entered the game just 3-4 in Bowl Games with his Clemson squad carrying a 15-14 all-time bowl record. It appears the Auburn Tigers may have their QB for next year in freshman Kodi Burns who ran for the winning touchdown in OT to give Auburn the straight up win as the underdog covered and The Duke got the loss.
NCAA Insight Bowl Report Summary
(INDIANA VS. OKLAHOMA STATE) The Dolphin had Oklahoma State as a 3* Regular play in this Big 10 VS Big 12 Bowl game. Indiana was 7-4 ATS during the regular season but was just 3-5 in Bowl games to this point. Oklahoma St. however, had an all time bowl record of 11-6 before this season and despite the fact both teams were 7-6 during the regular season, Oklahoma State played one of the toughest schedules in the Football Bowl Subdivision and had no problems spotting Indiana a touchdown. The Cowboys jumped to a 35-10 lead at halftime with their head coach Mike Gundy calling the plays after their offensive coordinator Larry Fedora left for S. Mississippi after the regular season. It did`nt seem to bother Oklahoma State as they drove their first 5 possessions for touchdowns. Indiana outscored Oklahoma St. in the 2H but it was just to much to overcome as they got handed the loss and The Dolphin got the W.
NCAA Music City Bowl Report Summary
(FLORIDA STATE VS. KENTUCKY) The Duke had a 3* on Florida State as the underdog against Kentucky even with Florida State missing many key players who were ineligible due to academic reasons and injuries. While Kentucky began the season starting out 5-1 ATS in lined games, they ended the regular season 1-4 ATS since their SU triple-overtime win against LSU in October. It was tied 14-all at half but Kentucky pulled away as Andre Woodson threw for 4 Touchdowns and 357 yards in his march to win the MVP for the 2nd consecutive Music City Bowl. Florida State running back Antone Smith had a career-high 156 yards rushing on the day in a losing effort. With the straight up win, Kentucky improved to 4-1-1 against the Seminoles in what was their first match-up since 1965. Florida State kept it within the numbers however, and got the ATS win for themselves and The Duke.
NCAA Humanitarian Bowl Report Summary
(FRESNO STATE VS. GEORGIA TECH.) The Big Swiss had 1 play on New Years Eve as he came in with Fresno State as an Underdog. Georgia Tech played with an interim coach in Jon Tenuta who was the DC as head coach Chan Gailey was fired after 6 seasons. The game was played in Boise and Fresno St. was 4-1 this season on turf. Georgia Tech was 22-13 in Bowl games up until this season, but It was Fresno State's 2nd bowl win over Georgia Tech, after beating the Yellow Jackets 30-21 in 2002 in the Silicon Valley Bowl. Fresno State put up 571 yards of offense and 40 points against a Georgia Tech team that only allowed an average of 20 PTS a game this season. Fresno State won outright 40-28 and gave Big Swiss the 4* W.
NCAA Sun Bowl Report Summary
(OREGON VS. SOUTH FLORIDA) The Dolphin had a 3* on Oregon in this matchup that seen the Ducks come in losing the last 3 games of the season after losing Senior QB Dennis Dixon to a knee injury in November. At the time it appeared Oregon had their eyes on a National Title, now they were just trying to snap a 4 game Bowl losing streak. They did just that as Jonathan Stewart rushed for a Sun Bowl record with a career-high 253 yards. He was helped out by Justin Roper a redshirt freshman who also threw for 4 touchdowns in his first start scorching the USF defense. The combination gave the UD Oregon the SU and ATS Win and also gave The Dolphin his first Bowl game win of the season.
NCAA Meineke Bowl Report Summary
(CONNECTICUT VS. WAKE FOREST) The Duke gave our VIP Football Service paid members a play on Wake Forest in the Meineke Car Care Bowl on Saturday. It was almost a home game for Wake Forest being played at Charlotte, NC just a short drive for their fans from Winston-Salem. The Demon Deacons rallied from 10 PTS down at half to win 24-10. Despite the loss, the UCONN defense played well shutting out The Demon Deacons' offense in a half for the first time all season. The Huskies failed to get an offensive TD all day with their only touchdown coming off a punt return. This was only Connecticut`s 2nd bowl appearance and now even`s their Bowl record at 1-1. The Wake Forest SU and ATS win improves their all-time bowl record to 5-3 and gives The Duke his first bowl win for our VIP Football Service for the 2007 season with a 1-1 bowl record.
NCAA Texas Bowl Bowl Report Summary
(TCU VS. HOUSTON) The Dolphin and Big Swiss both came came in with TCU in the Texas Bowl against a Houston team that has`nt won a bowl game since 1980, and also lost their head coach in Art Briles, who left to coach at Baylor a few weeks ago. The Cougars were led by interim coach Chris Thurmond in a losing effort that now extends their bowl losing streak to 8 games. TCU stopped Houston's star running back in Anthony Alridge as he entered the game with 1,568 yards rushing on the season but was held to just 28 yards on 15 carries by TCU `s defense. Houston made it 20-13 with a 32-yard field goal late in the 4Q but TCU held on to what was a cover by most lines for the Win. The standard FootballServices.com uses however had the line at 7 and gave our VIP Service cappers the Push. This is just 1 of numerous times this season that the grading line FootballServices.com used this season was slightly different than the majority of other lines used by the handicapping community and cost us the Win. In an effort to keep our Football Service records as accurate as possible, next season FootballServices.com intends to utilize another line as our grading standard which more accurately reflects the majority of lines available at kickoff time.
NCAA Holiday Bowl Report Summary
(TEXAS VS. ARIZONA STATE) Big Swiss and The Duke both had 3* Regular plays out on Arizona State for our VIP Football Service. While Arizona State failed to cover their last 4 games of the regular season, all 4 games were against inter-conference teams that they play often, and this was the first ever meeting between these 2 teams. Texas set a team record for their most points in a bowl game and have also now won four straight post-season games. With a 21 point lead early in the 2Q, Chris Jessie, the stepson of Texas coach Mack Brown, appeared to come off the sideline and touch the football in the field of play. The penalty allowed Rudy Carpenter to throw a TD pass the next play of the game to get on the board and go on to outscore Texas after that point, but the 21 point deficit from the 1Q was to much for an Arizona State team that has come from behind all year long. They failed to cover losing 34-52, giving Big Swiss and The Dolphin an L and making Arizona St. 12-11-1 in Bowl games.
NCAA Motor City Bowl Report Summary
(CENTRAL MICHIGAN VS. PURDUE) Football Services had a free pick out on Central Michigan in this rematch. Purdue was at home for their first meeting in September and won SU & ATS 45-22. Purdue did`nt have the home field advantage in this one though, and things changed drastically since the first meeting. Since the first game, ATS the Chippewas have gone 5-2-1 overall and 3-1-1 on the road in lined games. Meanwhile, ATS the Boilermakers went just 3-5-1 overall & 1-2-1 on the road. The Boilermakers also have`nt been the same all season after losing to Ohio State in October. Since the Ohio St. game Purdue was just 2-5 SU and lost their last 3 games of the season. Although Purdue did win this bowl game SU they failed to cover and Football Services got the Win for our visitors. As time ran out, Purdue kicked the winning Field Goal making the total hit 99 points and tied the total for the 2nd highest total PTS in a bowl game that ended in regulation.
NCAA New Mexico Bowl Report Summary
(NEVADA VS. NEW MEXICO) Football Services VIP handicapper Big Swiss had a 3* regular play on Nevada for a loss. It was basically another home game for New Mexico due to the fact it was played at University Stadium in Albuquerque, NM. One of the reasons Swiss liked the UD in Nevada was due to the fact the last bowl game New Mexico won was the Aviation Bowl at Dayton, Ohio in 1961 and Coach Rocky Long was also previously 0-4 SU & ATS in bowl games at New Mexico until he got his first win this year. We must give credit to The new Mexico Defense that held Nevada to its first shutout since moving to Division I-A in 1992 as New Mexico won 23-0. Big Swiss did`nt see a score like that coming as Nevada averaged over 35 PTS/GAME this season!
2007 WEEK 14 NCAA
Football Services VIP handicapping service went 8-3-1 overall in their regular season finale week 14 in the NCAA including The Dolphin hitting his 5* NCAA GOW with UCF! The Dolphin also had Virginia Tech as a RF for a Win. The Dolphin`s only L on the day came as a #1 ranked Missouri team failed to cover against a Oklahoma team that has now beat them Straight Up twice this year. The Duke continues to roll in the NCAA going 3-1 on the week as he also had VT but was on the other side of the ball in the MIZZOU game getting the Win as he rode with the Sooners. Hawaii handed The Duke his only L on the week as they won SU but failed to cover in their season finale giving them a perfect 12-0 record this season. Big Swiss landed at 2-1-1 on the week as he also rode VT as a 4* Win and came in with Nevada as 7 Pt. Favorites who also covered easily. Swiss also had Mizzou for his only Loss on the week and Tennessee for a Push.
2007 WEEK 13 NCAA
The Dolphin went 2-1 on the week hitting both his 3* Regular Plays with W.Virginia who continues to roll putting up 66 points against Connecticut and MIZZOU who knocked off unbeaten Kansas at home even with giving up 21 in the 4Q. His only Loss on the day came as Ball State gave up a late TD to NIU which gave them the SU Win but ATS Loss. Big swiss ended up at 3-2 on the week after starting with Arizona St. on Thursday as a HD. He & The Duke were on opposite sides of the ball early on Friday as Swiss rode Virginia Tech to a Road Favorite Win. Swiss also had Georgia as a Road Favorite for the W against in-state rival Georgia Tech. & the Tigers against Kansas, also for a Win. Big Swiss` only L on the day came as Oklahoma St. got beaten by Oklahoma. Like the other 3 Handicappers in our VIP Football Service, The Duke also had MIZZOU, as a 4 Star Top Play landing him at a 3-1 Top Play NCAA record since we got him to give us his NCAA picks 4 weeks ago. The Duke also had The Blue Devils for an ATS Win (Making them a 4-1 ATS in the Last 5 against N Carolina) against rival North Carolina. The Duke also had Washington and Bama for L`s on the day.
2007 WEEK 12 NCAA
The Duke keeps rolling in the NCAA going 4-1 this week! He hit his 4* with Virginia Tech. The Duke also hit 3* Plays on San Jose St. and Texas Tech as dogs, and Georgia as a Home Fav. His lone L on the day came as UTEP gave up 56 @ home to S. Mississippi. Big Swiss won his Top play on MIZZOU giving him a 8-4 Top NCAA Play record so far this season. He also had a 5 Star GOM on Clemson who got upset at home by B.C. and Regular Plays on Navy, and NC State both for losses. The Dolphin also had Navy who won SU but failed to cover against an NIU squad that managed to put up 24 PTS. Dolphin also had a 3* on Clemson, 3* on Maryland, and 3* on Rutgers that won SU but failed to cover at home against Pitt.
2007 WEEK 11 NCAA
The Duke rolled week 11 in the NCAA on the Football Service going 5-0 winning by an average of 23PTS/Game on the day. He hit his 4* Georgia and all 3 UD he picked won SU ( Virginia, San Diego St. , Northwestern ). Big Swiss had TCU on the road Thursday night for a 3* Win. Saturday Swiss split his Top Plays with Wisconsin and Missouri, and lost 2 Regular Plays Ohio St. who got upset by Illinois and UConn. The Dolphin took 2RF & 2HD this week as his 3* Play on Wisky covered. Dolphin`s 4* Play Arizona St. and 3* on UCF, both road favorites won SU but failed to cover. Kansas held Oklahoma State to 7 PTS/Q to remain undefeated on the year and cause Dolphin to lose his NCAA GOY.
2007 WEEK 10 NCAA
Big swiss goes 2-2-1 week 10 in the NCAA hitting his 4* Missouri and losing his 5* GOY with Arizona St.. Simple lack of execution took away Arizona State`s chance to come away from Autzen with a win and now gives the Ducks the upper hand in the Pac 10. Swiss also picked Navy for their 1st Win in 44 years over Notre Dame as a 3*, and had a Regular Play on a Vandy team that got BLASTED! Swiss & Dolphin both had Oklahoma St. for a push. Dolphin had 2 more pushes with Michigan St. at home against their in state rival Michigan and Alabama at home against LSU leaving the Dolphin at 0-0-3 on the day. Things couldn`t have gone much worse for The Duke who made his NCAA picks available to our VIP members for the first time ever this week and went 0-3-1. The Duke pushed with Maryland at N. Carolina, and had B.C., Ball State, and Penn State for L`s.
2007 WEEK 9 NCAA
Big swiss was simply on Fire this weekend Going 4-0 week 9 in the NCAA hitting his 4* (Arizona St.) and 5* with Oregon ! Big Swiss also had Ball St. who covered as a Double Digit dog for the 1st ever meeting between them and the Fighting Illini, and Colorado who was also a DD dog in a Big 12 match up in Lubbock and won outright! We`re still waiting for Texas Tech`s running game to show up. The Dolphin split the day at 2-2 winning his Top with Arizona St.. Dolphin also had Utah St. at home in a L and Louisville (who has failed to cover in 6 of their 8 lined games TY) who got the SU Win but failed to cover again. The Dolphin also had Oregon at home for a 3* W over USC. Harper had 2 INT`s against Mark Sanchez, making only his third start.
2007 WEEK 8 NCAA
This week could have definitely gone better for our VIP Football Service. They caught some Bad Beats as Kentucky had a TD at the end of the game but ran out of time to kick the extra point and ended up with a L (Swiss Top Play). Oklahoma St. won SU but allowed a late Touchdown and 2 point conversion to lose ATS (Dolphin Regular Play). Swiss hit his Special 5* GOW with Missouri at home for homecoming over Texas Tech with ease. Big Swiss also had USF on Thursday, Navy and Ohio St. on Saturday for L`s. The longer the season goes on, the more our VIP Service handicappers are beginning to believe "All teams in the Big 10 are created equal before God". The Dolphin had Oregon who pulled away for a win ATS in the 4Q. The Dolphin lost his GOD NCAA play with LSU as they won Straight Up but failed to cover at home against the Tigers. The Big Swiss believes Auburn could be one of the most underrated teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision (I-A), however The Dolphin disagrees. Dolphin`s still not impressed.
2007 WEEK 7 NCAA
Big Swiss hit his Special 5* on the day with Arizona St. over Washington by 22 as Arizona St. keeps a perfect 7-0 record on the year. The Dolphin also had Arizona State as a Top play on the day. If you watched the game, you may have noticed Arizona St. moved the ball at will. However, They have played a fairly average schedule so far and their toughest tests are on their way. We advise you pay attention in the coming weeks with them as they now have a bye and then have Cal. @ home then travel to Oregon and UCLA, only to follow up with USC on Thursday night and Arizona (both games in Tempe). The Dolphin and Big Swiss were on opposite sides of the ball on 2 games this Saturday causing them both to split the games as they both had Regular plays on them. Penn State at home dominated a Wisky team without one of their main receivers, Luke "Swanwalker" who was injured the previous week. Mizzou got a late TD to cover, however Oklahoma caught a few breaks of their own at the end to make it appear like a more dominating win than it actually was for homecoming. Big Swiss` Top play South Carolina all but dominated the first half but allowed rival N. Carolina back in it in the 2nd half to cover. S. Carolina did have a chance to cover at the end but the kicker shanked it off the post to hand The Swiss a bad beat on the day for his Top play. The Swiss also had N.I.U. at home who squeaked by with a W for homecoming in Dekalb. As far as Purdue goes, they lost but then again they have lost their last 16 in Ann Arbor.
2007 WEEK 6 NCAA
The Dolphin was hot week 6 in the NCAA going 3-1 hitting all his regular plays! Illinois handed Wisconsin their first loss of the season as an unranked 3 point Favorite, Mizzou simply dominated Nebraska U. to keep a perfect record, and Penn State didn`t let Iowa on the board until the 4Q allowing The Dolphin to go perfect on 3* plays on the day. He also had Oklahoma (Top) as they went to Texas U. & won outright but failed to cover. The Swiss started the week out right away taking Kentucky in a Loss on Thursday night and Utah who won as a dog outright on Friday night. As the week went on however, things got tougher for the Swiss. On Saturday he went 1-4 and lost his first Top NCAA play of the year with UD UNLV failing to get much Offense going against Air Force. Their wasn`t much "Choo Chooing" going on in West Lafayette as Purdue (Reg.) only put 7 on the board against who appears to be the Big 10 team to beat in Ohio St.. He also had Vandy as another Regular play (who didn`t even come close). Like Dolphin, the Swiss also had Missouri at home for a W over the Cornhuskers.
2007 WEEK 5 NCAA
Both our VIP cappers picked Boise St. on the Blue Grass on Thursday which was an easy W. Oregon had about as good of a chance you can have to get 7 and push it into OT .. and an extremely good defensive play caused a touch back to give California the W in a game both The Dolphin and Big Swiss had as Regulars. LSU got off to a slow start that allowed them to keep a perfect record, but fail to cover (The Dolphin`s Top). Illinois` held off #21 Penn State to win outright to keep Big Swiss at a perfect 4-0 for Top NCAA plays in `07. The `Bama / Florida St. game was a Defensive showdown. Alabama laid the pigskin on the floor early in the 4Q that gave Fl. St. a short field which didn`t help. Swiss also had Washington at night as they covered and almost pulled the SU upset against USC. They fell short with a TD in the final minutes making it USC 27 - WA 24.
2007 WEEK 4 NCAA
Football Services VIP handicappers got off to a quick start week 4 in the NCAA as the Big Swiss took Miami (FL.) on Thursday night as their D looked very good against Texas A&M holding them without a score until the 4Q. The Swiss continued early Saturday morning as he picked Ball St. over Nebraska. "I`m actually disappointed, I thought they`d win outright", said the Big Swiss about Ball State. After that, things slowed down for The Swiss as Penn St. couldn`t find the end zone, and New Mexico St. failed to score in the 2H as he ended up 3-3 on the week. The Dolphin ended up splitting his Regular plays on the week and hitting his Top as he also had the same problem with N.Mexico St. His Top play Iowa came through even with all their injuries at Wisc. and Kansas looked spectacular as they held Florida International to a FG.
2007 WEEK 3 NCAA
Week 3 of the NCAA season seen "The Dolphin" win both his regular plays as the Florida State "D" held Colorado to 1 TD and almost gave the Buffalo`s their first shutout in almost twenty years. It looked like The Dolphin had his top play locked up until Alabama allowed Arkansas to score 21 in the 4TH Q. "The SWISS" lost all 3 of his regular plays as Notre Dame failed to even score. Notre Dame couldn`t block anyone to give their freshman QB anytime to throw, and failed to get a running game going. Navy and Ball State exchanged blows the entire game as Navy ended up with an amazing 521 on the ground but could`nt pull away. The Swiss hit his Top play once again keeping a perfect 3-0 Top play NCAA record on the year as Boston College beat Georgia Tech. outright at home.
2007 WEEK 2 NCAA
In week 2 of the NCAA season 2 of the 3 Underdogs our Football Service handicappers picked won outright! And we won both our special and top plays, going 5-2 overall. The Dolphin won his NCAA Game of The Month play on 9-8-07 with Oregon beating Michigan outright at home! Like we said the week before, we must question Michigan`s "D". It was payback time for coach Spurrier and S.Carolina against Georgia after getting shutout last year by them 0-18. We had to believe Spurrier would go to GA. looking for revenge, and we were correct. The Swiss took a bad beat with E.Michigan, but o`well. Ya can`t win `em all.
2007 WEEK 1 NCAA
Football Services V.I.P. handicappers had a good week 1 in the NCAA. We went 5-1-1 and won both our top plays. 2 of our 3 V.I.P. Double Digit Favorites covered. The 2 Underdogs we took both won outright, and we won our free pick (Wisconsin). The 1 push we had could have very easily been a Win if it wasn`t for Missouri going for the 2 pt. conversion when it made no sense, (to us). Wisconsin`s always tough at home, and that game was a bigger blowout than the score showed with Wisconsin winning its last 10 season openers. Hat`s off to Appalachian State for taking out Michigan, in a huge upset. We must question Michigan`s D after seeing that game.
