Saturday's List of 13: Clearing out a cluttered mind.......

13) Interesting prop bet. Bookmaker is giving 7-1 odds this week that Tony Romo will throw a pick-6 at Foxboro Sunday.

12) Giants have converted 16 of 40 third down chances in their three wins; in their two losses, only 2 of 22.

11) Too damn many rougher-the-passer penalties are being called in the NFL; except for helmet-to-helmet hits, the league needs to let players play and football be football.

10) Former Boston College basketball coach Al Skinner is now an AAU coach, which lot of people thought he was when he was drawing checks from BC. Another former BC coach, Jim O’Brien, is now the coach at D-III Emerson College in the Boston area.

9) Florida State has become a good defensive team under coach Leonard Hamilton, who coached the Wizards when Michael Jordan was running that show; Seminoles’ Midnight Madness show Friday was billed as “Jam with Coach Ham”. FSU needs one explosive scorer to break through in the ACC.

8) Guess I don’t understand business. Columbus Blue Jackets drew on;y 9,187/8,986 fans to their first two home games; why would a team that draws this poorly not move to Hamilton, Saskatoon or Quebec City? They wouldn’t draw under 10,000 fans in those hotbeds of hockey. Whats preventing this from happening?

7) New York Rangers opened the NHL season in Europe; they play on Long Island Saturday, then start a swing thru western Canada- they don’t play in their home building until October 27. Then there are the Maple Leafs, whose first five games are at home- they don’t visit foreign ice until October 20.

6) According to The Gold Sheet, Al Davis never owned more than 47% of the Raiders.

5) If you like pro football, SoundFX is good show on NFL Network Wednesday nights; it features three players/coaches who were miked during the previous week’s games. Mostly interesting stuff to listen to.

4) Only in the Boston media could firing a manager and letting a GM walk to another franchise be seen as “a thermonuclear aftermath”. Nothing like overreacting to everything.

3) Sometimes teams win despite organizational dysfunction; Dick Vermeil never coached the Rams again after he won Super Bowl 34. Dick Williams bolted the A’s after consecutive World Series titles in 1972-73. Obviously some of this dysfunctional stuff was going on when the Red Sox won in 2007, but their talent overcame it. Losing exposes flaws and the media runs with it and heads roll. If Boston had made the playoffs, we wouldn’t know anything about these players' clubhouse hijinks.

2) Nelson Cruz has 11 homers in his first 25 playoff games; he threw the go-ahead run out from medium-depth right field late in Game 4. Too bad he doesn’t play in New York or Boston; he might actually become well-known.

1) If I was managing the Brewers, I’d sleep well every night, except those nights when I gave Albert Pujols a chance to beat me. You cannot pitch to him in any big spot. He’s that good.

State is 0-2 as underdogs this year, 3-5 as a home dog under Mullen. Bulldogs' last four games stayed under total.

Oregon is amazing 25-8-1 against spread in last 34 games as home fave, 10-2-1 under Kelly; they've won lined home games 69-20/43-15 as well as a 56-31 win at Arizona, so Ducks score lot of points.

Cowboys got its first win in last 13 tries vs Texas LY, passing for 409 yards. Favorites are 8-3-1 vs spread in last dozen series games. Longhorns covered once in last four games as the underdog- they gave up three defensive TDs in dismal 55-17 loss to rival Oklahoma last week, a major step back in their recovery from LY's 5-7 debacle. How do they bounce back here?

Texas Tech won its last five games vs Kansas State, winning last three 59-20/58-28/66-14. Wildcats lost last three visits to Lubbock by 52-39-19 points, but they're 5-0 this year, beating Miami-Baylor-Missouri last three weeks, all as underdogs.

Sunday's List of 13: Wrapping up a college football Saturday......

13) Michigan State has beaten Michigan four years in a row for first time in almost 50 years, and now Wisconsin visits East Lansing next week, in what should the week's featured game.

12) Ohio State handed Illinois its first loss, but Buckeyes were 1-4 passing for 17 yards; the only completion was a TD pass, but what a red flag as they move forward. Their passing game is a shambles.

11) Oklahoma State is first team in 100 years to beat Texas in Austin two years in a row; Cowobys got a solid road win, 38-26.

10) Utah came east and beat Pitt 26-14; Panthers were 9-30 passing and had only 120 total yards. At home. Awful.

9) Oregon got pretty banged-up late Saturday night, but pulled away in the second half and beat Arizona State 41-27. These teams could meet again in the first Pac-12 title game.

8) Kansas State has pulled upsets four weeks in a row, getting a defensive TD and a kick return TD in a 41-34 win at Texas Tech. Tech passed ball for 461 yards but were minus-4 in turnovers and lost at home.

7) UConn beat South Florida 16-10, second year in row they beat USF without benefit of an offensive touchdown. Football's a weird game.

6) Hawai'i/San Jose State both had six turnovers Friday night; don't think I've ever seen a game that sloppy before, when both teams turned the ball over so much. Plus San Jose blocked a PAT and ran it back for two points that turned out to be the difference in the game.

5) SMU had a dreadful record as a home favorite and Central Florida had a great record as a road underdog, but Mustangs avenged their loss to UCF in LY's C-USA championship game, beating the Knights 38-17.

4) Florida lost its third game in a row because you can't win SEC games if you don't have a quarterback who's played college football. These teams used a combined seven QBs- QB play in the SEC is sub-par this year.

3) Northern Illinois had a ridiculous 494 rushing yards in a game they were losing 15-13 at the half; Huskies crushed Western Michigan in the second half, pulling away to a 51-22 win. Wisconsin is the only team to hold the Huskies under 40 points this season.

2) If you bet South Carolina -3 Saturday, please stop reading. Gamecocks took an intentional safety on last play of the game in Starkville, avoiding a punt with 0:04 left to play when they led Mississippi State 14-10. This is known as quite possibly one of the worst football beats I've ever seen. Although the Express had Mississippi State. :)

1) Clemson was down 28-10 at Maryland; not only did they win, they covered the spread, winning a wild 56-45 game over the Terps. Tigers are now 7-0, and seemed poised for a magical season 30 years after they won the national title back in 1981.

How did we do on Saturday Greek??
