Good Morning Football Fans:

Overall, The Visionary showed another very small profit last night, losing our (3-unit) total, but hitting the (2-unit) side play in the college football game. We also nailed our first (2-unit) hockey play of the 2008 season, giving us a slight profit overall. Due to the later then expected finish of my Saturday card, I will limit the discussion today and get right to the college football picks. I have a very large card again this week. Once again, I feel extremely confident that this card will cash today. Now, I won't waste anymore time and I will get right to the picks. We have three big plays of 4-5 units again this week along with a bundle of four average and small plays. Here we go for the eighth week of the 2008 college football season....

It was one of those days, I suppose. Not only did your picks fizzle, but North Carolina, Syracuse and Stanford fucked me over as well.

I mean, when you have no chance to cover after the 1st half is over, it tells you something, or when your cover is fucked on a last second play.

I'm not making sense.

Anyway, what I'm trying to say is I lost about 10 units on the day, so I'm counting on a profitable Sunday to start the road back to black.

Willmore,

I think I know what you are saying about losing in blowouts. But, trust me; even the best handicappers lose games that are blowouts, especially in the college ball. These are 18-21 year old kids or overpaid prima donnas that we are trying to handicap. Sometimes they just don't come to the game ready to play and they get beat badly. But, if you are consistently losing your strongest plays by complete blowouts, then you may need to rethink the way you go about making your selections.

I know it was a really tough day. But, in all reality, I only lost 5 units of my 135-unit bankroll that I have built for myself over the past few months. I really hate to hear that you lost even more then that today. If you are playing additional plays along with my plays, I really hope that you are playing disciplined and with some type of money management system. I am going to attempt stressing the importance of money management even more to all my readers. Money management is just as important as picking winners. No matter who is picking your games, if you are not betting with a system, you are destined for failure.

Again, sorry to hear that you had a bad day. I hope the 5-unit Arizona play helped a little bit. As much as I hate losing my own money, I hate seeing the people I am trying to help lose even more. This is why I got out of the handicapping business. People in the handicapping business do not care if their clients lose (and that includes Brandon "Scumbag" Lang).

Anyway, I have been doing very well in the NFL this season. Hopefully this will continue tomorrow. Have a good night Willmore. Get some sleep. Tomorrow is another day.

Nah, don't worry about me, my main problem yesterday was Stanford. They were covering the -2.5 but then let UCLA march down the field an score the touchdown. That's a 6-unit swing right there. The Syracuse play was just bad, so I can't really complain there, but Stanford just frustrated the hell out of me.

Anyway, here's to a profitable Sunday.
