Ladies and gentlemen, we had an okay weekend of college football gambling.

We entered the past slate of games sitting at 15-14-1. Trust me when I say that things have only gotten a little bit better.

For those who might have forgotten, here were the picks:

  • Michigan vs. Wisconsin (+7.5): LOSS
  • Florida (-7) vs. Vanderbilt: WIN
  • Penn State (-13.5) vs. Michigan State: LOSS
  • Texas A&M (-2.5) vs. South Carolina: WIN
  • Alabama (-28) vs. Missouri: WIN

Okay, that puts us at 18-16-1. Is this perfect? No, it’s not, but we could be much worse off than two games above .500 right now. Yes, we’re only two games up. That’s a fact I’m sure not all of you are happy about. However, it’s better than nothing. (RELATED: Here Are The Best Gambling Picks For Week Seven Of College Football)

The most heart-breaking part is the fact the Badgers got rolled by Michigan. It was embarrassing. I wanted to be absolutely anywhere on the planet than watching that game. It was awful.

I bet so much money on that game, and I watched it all just disappear. What an absolute disaster of a situation. Oh well, life goes on. That’s just the way the world turns.

Now, we focus on going above .500 again and getting better with every week. I wish I could sound more enthusiastic but the Badgers killed my soul this weekend.
