UPDATE: I am an idiot who misread my card. Turns out we didn’t do nearly as poorly as I thought! Props to me for admitting when I’m wrong.

I think it’s safe to say we didn’t have an outstanding weekend of college football gambling.

We entered the week 18-16-1, and it’s good that we had a little breathing room because things didn’t go well. (RELATED: Here Are The Best Gambling Picks For Week Eight Of College Football)

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

  • Wisconsin vs. Illinois (+25.5): LOSS
  • Michigan (-7) vs. Michigan State: WIN
  • Oklahoma (-8) vs. TCU: WIN
  • Iowa (-9) vs. Maryland: WIN
  • Washington vs. Colorado (+16.5): WIN

Now, we’re sitting at 22-17-1.

Wisconsin finally decided they wanted to start playing dominating football the one week I pick them to not cover. Where the hell is my luck these days?

The good news is that in any fight, it’s the man who is willing to take a licking and keep fighting who is going to win. Shoutout to Al Pacino for the inspiration.

That’s where we are right now, ladies and gentlemen.

Now, we can either fight forward as we accept the losses. Or, we can just allow ourselves to get repeatedly killed.

Trust me, we’re going to bounce back. You can take that to the bank.
