I have no idea what's going on with the Experts' win-loss records. They sure seem to fluctuate.

I did have the top record for Week 3 with a 13-7 showing, but I'm more embarrassed by my 0-3 performance in my top plays. I guess after a 5-1 start, I was due to take a hit.

After Week 3, Jerry Hinnen's 38-22 leads the Expert standings. Dennis Dodd and I are tied at 35-25, followed by Chip Patterson's 34-26, Brett McMurphy's 33-27, Bruce Feldman's 32-28, Tom Fornelli's 29-31 and Adam Jacobi's 28-32.

Had to wait before I posted out of ANGER/Frustration/Losing.  Terribly coached game, poor execution, brings to mnd the TB coach MacKay quote, Yes I am for their execution when questioned about the teams performance, insert this for the Phins end of game performance.  Horrible, I will be surprised if the coach (Sporano?) is still employed when the plane lands.

Another good week 2-1 with a straight up dog winner, nice on the ML. Still giving you credit for the Maryland game earlier.  I got you at 8-5.  Still working on the profitable side of things $$$.  The college games should become more interesting as League play will pick up.  On a personal note I have the Dolphins for a straight up win today to make my vacation fund flush with $$$.  So that I can get to the Bahamas for some gambling and drinks w/umbrellas.  Have a great week.

Looking forward to another exciting week in college games.  There is one team in your neighborhood Johnny that appears to be making a name for itself.  FIU  They have played great so far this year and looks to make a bowl appearance with a few more wins.  I remember when they started the program and coach Strock began and he was also competing with Schellenberger in the talented Broward/Palm Beach counties.  FAU got the recognition with Schellenberger, but it appears that FIU now has the better developed program.  Did they build them a stadium or are they playing the games at the stadium near the Orioles old spring training site?   FIU is a big favorite and will be rooting for them to cruise this weekend.
