Saturday Roulette: Texas State Fair Edition; Can Razorbacks Extend Streak To … Two?

by Doc Harper 10/12/2012 9:30 am

Good news! It’s Red River Rivaly Shootout week, which, as mentioned last year, is my favorite non-SEC game of the year. I love the look of the red and orange side by side, two storied programs clashing, and the spectacle of the Texas State Fair surrounding the Cotton Bowl. The fair is known far and wide for its record of innovation and progress in the fried food arts. Like last year, Saturday Roulette will honor that hard work by wagering some of the new fried food debuting at the fair this year in lieu of betting our usual fantasy dollars. We had another good week last week, going 5-3. The season total is 26-21. We’re rolling! Here are this week’s winners:

Jim Harris: Watch Football Evolve Before Your Very Eyes

by Jim Harris 8/29/2012 12:48 pm

A fascinating story surfaced on the Internet last week about the success of the newfangled offenses in college football at such outposts as Stillwater, Okla., and Morgantown, W.Va. The common thread in those places is, of course, Dana Holgerson, who was offensive coordinator at Oklahoma State in 2010 after a stint with former Houston head coach Kevin Sumlin (now at Texas A&M) and then became head coach at West Virginia. Oklahoma State was even better last year, not missing a beat with 28-year-old Brandon Weeden at quarterback and wunderkind Justin Blackmon at receiver.

Jim Harris: College Football Must Go With the 'Plus-One' Championship Game

by Jim Harris 1/11/2012 2:32 pm

The right team is the college football national champion today. But nothing that happened during the course of the season brought us fairly to that conclusion — not in the way college football has crowned its champion over the past 75 years. Alabama didn't play its best game, especially in kicking field goals, and lost at home to LSU on Nov. 5, yet the Crimson Tide was given another shot. Alabama took full advantage with a complete dominance of LSU in the BCS Championship Game in New Orleans.

by Chris Bahn 10/23/2011 8:44 pm

Arkansas avoided a loss at Ole Miss. But the Razorbacks couldn’t avoid slipping in the BCS standings. A 29-24 victory against the Rebels wasn’t enough for Arkansas (6-1, 2-1) to maintain its spot in the BCS. Now the Razorbacks are No. 10, failing to move up in a week two Top 10 teams lost.

Saturday Roulette: Volunteers, Tigers Can't Repeat Last Year's Ending, Can They?

by Doc Harper 10/14/2011 9:00 am

If you were thinking I’d take this week off simply because the Razorbacks are off, oh were you mistaken. All a bye week means is that you can watch football all day, stress-free. You can keep your robe on, leave your cooler by the recliner, play the first half of “Freebird,” the second half of “Layla,” and when it gets late, just the horn line in “Careless Whisper” because that’s a song only for sundown. Perhaps you’re the Jimmy Buffett type, watching games from an outdoor beachside bar somewhere in the Redneck Riviera (so jealous of you). Either way, just relax and spend the day scouting future opponents in case a coach asks for help or because you’re in the business of picking games.

by Jim Harris 9/28/2011 3:10 pm

While Texas A&M, from its administration on down to the Aggies players, look forward to Saturday's showcase with Arkansas as a first opportunity to show the world it's SEC-ready, Razorback Coach Bobby Petrino insisted Wednesday it's just another game for the Hogs. He's needing his team to put away its awful showing in Tuscaloosa, understand that it very well may have lost to the eventual 2011 BCS champion, and focus on what can be achieved starting Saturday in Arlington, Texas.

Saturday Roulette: Introducing The Rigged Slots Award; By The Way, It's Bama Week

by Doc Harper 9/23/2011 12:00 pm

If the first week of Saturday Roulette was the type that would make you think about quitting your job and betting on games for a living, the second week was the kind that makes The Wife tell you, “Clock in at work early on Monday.” Saturday Roulette humbly went 3-5 last week on the type of Saturday that felt cursed.
