              When you're winning stack up, when you're losing back up....
              Gabe if you're not going to post ALL your plays on the website why not post them ALL in ONE thread and let people know where that is?

                      Perfect post: A friendly acknowledgement of fellow community members followed by a detailed layout of the Grand Challenge wager against Pinnacle numbers with betting number, team name, pointspread and price laid out beautifully.

                      Now let's hope TEXED has found a winner.

                          Negative.

                          But more points on your power rating for humor's sake.

                                  Today's play

                                  334...Nebraska +2 -108

                                  I am 0-4 with Nebraska so far this season. I am hoping that their late rally last week will carry over today. Mike Riley is hanging on by the tips of his fingernails and that may not be a plus today. I suspect he is looking forward to his $7 million buyout and heading off into the sunset.

                                    TEXED deserved a better fate in the Wake Forest-Notre Dame game.

                                    WF outscored ND, 21-7, in the game's final 17 minutes.

                                    The back door was wide open in South Bend today.

                                              JK should give me credit on this one even if it doesn't win.

                                                "The Cardiac Cats" have won three straight overtime games, the only team in FBS history to pull off the feat.

                                                Here's hoping, for TEXED's sake, that the Cats avoid a fourth overtime game.

                                                Money for Purdue.

                                                NU currently -4 at CRIS.

                                                Game goes at 6 p.m. CT.

                                                ESPN2 to televise.

                                                              Javy....Thanks for watching out for me. I checked Pinnacle right before I submitted the pick, and 11 is what they had. But I suspect I'm not using their site correctly as I remember some mention of a drop-down box with varied numbers. I still don't see that. If it exists, can you tell me where to find it.I just use 5 Dimes, so don't know much about Pinnacle's site. I will stick with the 11, but again I appreciate the heads up.
