  1. Precisely why you want to add NDSU. They are one of the great all-time college football schools. That will be especially true if you lose Boise. Lots of people say if NDSU is called up (they are ready in all aspects) they will become a small fish in a big pond!
  2. Boise State is not a very good football team but they are extraordinarily efficient. Their offense plays on a short virtual field of 70 yards and defense plays on a long 124 yd field. Until that changes they will probably continue to win. We picked them to win against the spread and as our apple II+ predicted they easily covered 9. The II+ also predicted the under but we stayed away. Might be time to get back in on the O/u. So far we are $100 ahead. We put $220 up and have $210 back with $110 still in the box. Can’t wait for the UTEP game. It could be wild.
  3. A bad football team: UTEP: points scored 81. Points allowed 127. 1.57 pts allowed for each point scored A better football team: NMEX: points scored 81. Points allowed 85 1.05 pts allowed for each point scored That game could be high scoring A good football team: Utah State: points scored 123. Points allowed 92. 0.75 pts allowed for each point scored A very good football team: Boise State: points scored 105. Points allowed 70. 0.67 pts allowed for each point scored This game could be low scoring
  4. Yes, they are studying a lot of new ideas. now that information can be passed freely among the libraries, as you have probably guessed, each library doesn’t have to have all the information themselves. It’s a good model for other colleges to follow. They are talking about getting computers to do it too, not just fax, phone and USMail. For example: NDSU is still the largest land holding college in the US I think and have some fields they have been studying and kept under continuous cultivation since the 1880s. That’s the type of unique information that has real value in research
  5. 70 is huge We have 53. It probably represents the perceived ability of Boise to break it open. If so it could go over. Ill run ND @ Wisky. I like your thinking on that under. My system can only do finals. To do halves requires some of your tactical thinking style.
  6. GAME OF THE WEEK: LOBOS @ MINERS Equally matched teams we have NMEX -5 NMEX Lobos 29 @ UTEP Miners 24 Las Vegas has NMEX -1 We took NMEX ATS (against the spread) $110 get $100. We think the lobos cover. O/u is 54, we show 53. Too close for us, but the indicator says under. We stayed away. Haven’t been hitting the O/u. Once bit twice shy. We didn’t play the money line either. https://www.oddsshark.com/ncaaf/computer-picks Now we see. In the MWC we have $220 down trying to win $200. Juice is high this year it seams. Also not seeing FCS lines. Did
  7. Not really. Middle of the pack MVFC team at best. Good spring because most teams were not at full strength. Very little to be learned about teams from the absurd spring season. The FCS did end up with a great national championship game though. What you saw was what UND is. Couple good players, no depth and average coaching/recruiting. They play NDSU next Saturday. We have NDSU -13 in that one and are looking for a 31-18 type game, similar to the last 2 meetings. If UND looks good in that one you may be right.
  8. Boise state is not the powerhouse nationally they once were. However they can cover the 9 point spread We have taken Boise to cover We put down $110 to win $100. The money line on Utah State is +238 but we didn’t take it. The O/u appears to be 70. We stayed away from that proposition. We take baby steps as college football rebuilds it’s statistical continuity. Placing this bet was not easy, we have seen some crazy results, a couple we published on this board last week. We have to get back in sometime. OUR CALL: BOISE STATE 32 UTAH ST 20 FROM LAS VEGAS: BSU -9
  9. No. But they were instrumental in creating a North Dakota intra-library loan group among North Dakota’s 11 colleges and universities that’s pretty neat. They upgraded the media center too subscribing to all of North Dakota’s newspapers including the small town weeklies.
  10. Good night for the MWC. Looks like the GAM system is in a rebuilding year. My take-away; UND showed what they had. the Aggie’s might want to think about coming out of the chute a little more prepared. They shouldn’t have given up 21 early. Good MWC teams won’t give it back The Aggies gave them a moral victory, something UND has been quick to claim in the past. Reading comments on Sioux sports.com you might think they won. That’s a good sign things are returning to normal in the new version of the virtual United States now owned and operated by the Chinese. But what do we ca
  11. The MVFC has plowed through the Big 12, big 10 and MAC too.
  12. 21-13. Utah State is over matched but playing well.
  13. This really isn’t a surprise 21-7 UND after 1 qtr. lots of football left. The other ND team, the bison, are not what they were. The problem is coaching.
  14. It’s just ego. They banned you of course?
  15. The MVFC would do well in the MWC. UND is middle of pack like Utah State
  16. UTEP appears to be terrible tonight. UND takes opening drive in for score. Moved early against Utah State. 7-0 UND
  17. Things are a little off with both games. Utah State rain/lightening delay for another hour. This changes everything.
  18. I’ve never done it like suggested but the Vegas line makers are very, very good. I expect someone using Vegas odds would in this game do very very well too. Vegas has 3 basic money propositions each game: over/under, winner/spread and money line. We use vegas as our measure of success so we use those 3 propositions too. My computer looks for upsets as compared to Vegas expectations. The GAM will get you 2 out of 3 over the body of all games but could get you nothing but a loss on any given game. It has the most problem with over/under. There are more reversals in college b
  19. A startling upset just began flashing UTEP over Boise State UTEP is a 24.5 dog to Boise on Friday at least in ‘Vegas” or shall we say MIDAS, our great competitor. Take the 24.5 and UTEP. We dont believe Boise can cover For those with a lot of faith in UTEP and CUSA take UTEP on the money line. It’s there Our computer shows a potential 49-24 UTEP win. Why? possibly because of the thin base of statistical comparison without any connection to the last full fall season before the take-over of the United State in 2020? possibly because the UTEP offense is pr
  20. I’ve thought about it, believe me, but in my situation the extra cost isn’t worth it. Besides I have 2 floppy drives and 48K! We will see. Friday night is a big test because of the upset call. So far there is no action for this game on any of the on line betting sites we frequent except the 3.5 spread favoring Utah State. This kind of game is the weak underbelly of football wagering and why they say “win it on Saturday, lose it on Sunday.” https://www.oddsshark.com/ncaaf/odds I would have picked more scores but don’t know a thing about the MWC. You should schedul
  21. Our apple II+ running VISA-CALC* has an upset flashing: The GAM is predicting UND 29 Utah State 23. We don’t feel UND can cover the spread. Take Utah State and points if over 4 Take UND on the money line. *User Tip VISA-CALC: latest version has adjustable column width and individual cell formatting. Available pre-programmed functions have been expanded to include financial and engineering.
  22. Shuffle it around any way you want including basketball and football members only, it makes no difference. Some conferences are growing in number some are shrinking. Sooner or later one of the conferences, and it could be the lowest on the totum pole, will have to turn to division 1 FCS for a member.
