    Billy:

    Just went to the bookstore. Saw Steele's Coll FB preview.

    Have not yet seen the Marc Lawrence FB preview. The Lawrence preview might be worth it just to get all the schedules in one place.

    As for betting Coll FB, wow, how tough is that game? My opinion is that the Coll FB lines are sharper than ever. I'm sure they're using a lot of the Steele data to line the early games.

    Are these games even bet-able? I have an early play on Colorado +21.5 (at TCU). I like the line value but even that is speculative. That's counting on Deion putting together a roster...and it's getting late.

    Marcus Allen has the distinction of being the only player to have won the Heisman Trophy, an NCAA national championship, the Super Bowl, and be named NFL MVP and Super Bowl MVP.[2] He was inducted to the College Football Hall of Fame in 2000, the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2003, and the International Sports Hall of Fame in 2021.[3]


    "Thomas R. "Tom" Flores (born March 21, 1937 in Fresno, California) is a retired American collegiate and professional football quarterback and former professional coach. Flores and Mike Ditka are the only two people in the NFL history to win Super Bowls as a player, as an assistant coach, and as a head coach.

    Billy:
    1) Marcus Allen is not the name I'm looking for. I believe he won the Super Bowl in his SECOND season. Raiders lost to the Jets in the expanded playoffs after the strike-shortened 1982 season.

    2) Ditka was the name I had in mind. Looks like I whiffed on Flores. So, my question was faulty.

    Google can take a leap. In 1977 Dorsett won both:
    *Off ROY
    and
    *Super Bowl vs the Broncos

    Billy, I hear you, the anticipation.

    Remember one thing on Exact Scores. Much harder now, after the XPt Rule changed.

    XPts aren't 99%. They're 93% now. Just one missed Xpt changes the landing spot significantly.

First 12
