College Football Sucks in 2015, At Least For Me And My Teams

This year with a good returning senior class, a better seasoned QB, and a possible Heisman candidate running back it seemed like they had a decent change. At this point in the season they are:

NUMBER ONE: THE UNIVERSITY OF UTAH UTES

Well I had the teams I wanted to root for and now all I needed to do was wait for the season to open. It was during the glory days of Urban Meyer, and Alex Smith, and there top seasons. An boy did it OPEN WITH A CURVE BALL. The fight song echos through my brain each and every game day and with the hiring of Coach Harbaugh it seemed to be only getting louder with anticipation.

The problem with this, is that none of them are my teams. In the beginning my teams were in the hunt, each could of have been a contender. To me there is no better group of men and women then those who serve our Country, and protect us each and every day.

Now as a PAC-12 team they can challenge for a championship each and every year. Usually I have only a few teams I enjoy, but this year I added a third one. Each team seems to control their own destiny, meaning they win and they are in. So without further delay here are my teams.

At least from this point in the College Football season the selection committee for the College Football playoffs have got it right. But the Cougars have remained an Independent team making it very difficult to compete for a championship. Utah would play Michigan head to head at the beginning of the season!

NUMBER THREE THE WILDCARD – NAVY FOOTBALL. Each and every Rose Bowl they played in my Grandfather and I spent watching them play. Their win over Alabama and other teams. More importantly he motivates and guides these men who go into active duty in the military and serve our country.

After I saw a movie featuring the current coach of the Navy football program I knew I had to follow them this year a little more closely. Oh, how the start of the season brought such high hopes for me. But the third team is always a fluid choice changing year by year. Even though they have one already. So hopes were high for me this year for the Utes.

NUMBER TWO – THE MICHIGAN WOLVERINES

SO I HAD MY TEAMS NOW WHAT?

Clemson – Alabama – Oklahoma – and Iowa

After living in Utah for most of my life I have grown to love two Utah teams, the Utes and the BYU Cougars. While I still watch, and root, for the Cougars whenever I get a chance, it is the Utes who I grew to love. My mother was born in Ann Arbor, so it only made sense we would have Maize and Blue in our blood. All back when they were in the Mountain West Conference.

My family all grew up in Michigan. Ken Niumatalolo seems like a fascinating person with a great grasp on teaching or youth the game of football and developing fine young men

Analyzing the Horse Betting Odds Today

People who bet on horse races take time to understand horse betting odds and use it to their advantage.

$465 / $300 = $1.55

Calculating the exact win odds on a horse will require you to know the following such as;

ODDS PAYS ODDS PAYS ODDS PAYS

$900 – 15% = $765.

Total pool: $900

1-1 $4.00 7-2 $9.00   15-1 $32.00

7-5 $4.80 9-2 $11.00 30-1 $62.00

It is quite surprising how many horse bettors out there do not understand horse betting odds at all.

Total Win Pool and the

1-2 $3.00 2-1 $6.00 8-1 $18.00

3-5 $3.20 5-2 $7.00 9-1 $20.00

Here is a sample:

Pay-offs for $2 win bets:

2-5 $2.80 9-5 $5.60 7-1 $16.00

1-5 $2.40 8-5 $5.20 6-1 $14.00

6-5 $4.40 4-1 $10.00 20-1 $42.00

3-2 $5.00 5-1 $12.00 50-1 $102.00

4-5 $3.60 3-1 $8.00   10-1 $22.00

Round this off to $1.50 for breakage and you get odds of 1.5-1 or 3-2 as it would normally be written which yields a payoff of $5.00 on a $2.00 wager.

We have a chart here that will help you out on your payoff but note that your actual payoff may differ slight from the chart since the odds at most racetracks are rounded off, also depends on which sportsbook site you joined in. If you really must find the exact odds, just calculate the exact odds on your horse and subtract the take from the total pool.  Then subtract the amount bet on your horse to give you the amount of cash to be paid out.  Divide that figure by the amount bet on your horse to get the exact odds.  This figure will always be rounded off to the nearest dime (usually) or nickel as mentioned above before the payoffs are calculated.  Ask yourself, is it really worth the extra effort for the amount bet?

 Amount Bet on that horse.

Knowing your actual pay off when you bet $3 on a race will be enough to give you an edge and start to wager smartly.

$765 – $300 = $465

A fun way and exciting way to earn money is to be on horse races. Just don’t forget that payoffs use the actual odds and are rounded down to the nearest nickel or dime depending on the rules at that track.

Amount bet on horse #1: $300

Take amount: 15%

The odds quoted will tell you the amount of profit you will get and the amount you have to bet to get it when horse betting.  Thus, 6-5 means you will get $6 profit for every $5 wagered.

The Total Win Pool is all the money bet on all the horses to win, but is not necessarily the amount that will actually be paid out to the holders of winning tickets. Before the racetrack pays off the winners they deduct the “take” which generally comes between 14% and 20% and is different for every state. This money is used to cover the state and local taxes, purse money for the horsemen, expenses at the track and the track’s profit

Baseball Hitting Drills – Tips and Drills For Using Hitting Stick Trainers by Nick Dixon

It is welcomed in complexes and parks because it allows safe pre-game warm-up, requires little space, and does not damage fences. The ball should be at a location just inside the batters back foot. The batter should keep the head still and the head should stay down with the eyes on the ball throughout the swing.

4. Second, the holder must stand at the proper angle to the batter and direct the ball at the correct angle to the batter. The first and original version was the HitnStik*. Make sure the ball is directed at the batter’s back foot.

3. HIP TURNER LOCATION – The holder stands slightly behind the batter directing the ball at the batter’s bat pocket. The batter will drive the bat through the box. The ball should be positioned slightly in front of the batters front foot. The purpose of these swings is to make the batter use the hips as the batter turns and hits the ball. The ball should be positioned at a location inside the batters front foot. Remember to direct the ball toward the belly button or back foot of the batter.

The http://BaseballCoachingDigest.com has a great selection of BASEBALL COACHING and TRAINING ARTICLES. The batter should take a step and drive the ball.

4. Make sure the batter does not over stride.

10. The ball will be positioned in a location behind the front foot. +SKLZ Target is a registered trademark of Pro Performance Sports.

As the inventor of the HitnStik*, Hit2win Trainer^, and SKLZ Target+ Trainer, I sometimes cringe when I see someone using the product incorrectly. Make sure that the hitting area is safe with no one within 15 feet of the holder or the batter.

The batter takes 5 swings at 5 different ball locations. 7. You should not move the ball when using these trainers. This high speed training machine is 100% Guaranteed to raise Batting Averages and has a full year warranty.

There are many versions of the “ball-on-a-rod” trainer. They have different names but they all are great trainers to teach and train young players. I sometimes get frustrated because I observe the product being used incorrectly.

1. AWAY STRIKE LOCATION – The holder will move around a couple more feet to give the batter a ball to hit that is on the outer 3rd of the plate. Check to make sure the batter is using proper grip, stance and stride mechanics.

5. The holder will change the location of the ball by moving.

Baseball Hitting Drills – Tips and Drills For Using Hitting Stick Trainers

 by: Nick Dixon

The key to proper use of any hand-held batting device is KNOWING AND USING THE CORRECT ANGLE FOR THE DRILL YOU ARE DOING! If you do not direct or point the ball at the proper angle, the batter will always make poor contact. The batter does not move. Allowing the ball to pass inside the front foot allows the batter to use the front foot and leg as a anchor and leverage to generate a more powerful swing.

6. The holder should make sure that the trainer safety strap is used to prevent the holder from losing their grip on the trainer when the batter hits the ball.

8. If the angle is wrong, the end of the bat will hit behind the ball and the bat will never actually touch the ball. ^Hit2win is a registered trademark of Nedco Sports Products. MIDDLE STRIKE CONTACT – The holder will move around a couple more feet. INSIDE STRIKE – The holder moves toward the direction of the pitcher from the batter. The batter may have to take a slight inward step with the front foot to properly execute this swing.

*HitnStik is a registered trademark belong to Easton Sports. I often see coaches and parents working with players when I visit a park. Then later came other versions including the Hit2win Trainer^ and the SKLZ Target Trainer. The batter should attack the inside strike earlier to keep from getting jammed. . This simple rule insures that proper bat-to-ball contact is made. This is what I call “coning out”.

The popularity come from the benefits they offer the baseball player, baseball coach, and the baseball parent. The batter swings and drives the ball in a direction that would be to the opposite field. This location simulates hitting a pitch over the inside 3rd of the plate. The unit is portable and requires no setup. The ball hit is on the middle 3rd of the plate. The first thing to remember is that the holder should always direct the rod and ball toward the hitter’s back foot. Check out the Bat Action Hitting Machine baseball pitching simulator at http://BatAction.com. The height of the ball should be raised and lowered in the strike zone to give the batter swings at both high and low strikes.

3. These trainers are some of the most popular baseball batting trainers used today.

9. Make sure that the batter is swinging in a direction that is free of persons should the batter lose the grip on the bat.

2. This teaches the batter to allow the ball down the middle to get inside the front foot so that maximum power can be generated during the swing. It is important to know the proper angles when using this product.

The holder changes location and height and allows the batter to take 6 swings at each location. Positive reinforcement should be given when the batter makes good solid contact.

2. All of these are handheld units. First, the product is to be used as a “still” ball trainer. All of these baseball trainers basically work and perform the same. You can learn to hit without having to chase, pick-up or retrieve a single ball. Every player on the team can take 30 warm-up swings each in less than 10 minutes.

Ex-NBA star went from $108 million to bankruptcy

Thanks to his on-the-court success, Walker made more money playing the sport he loved than he could even dream of when he grew up in a poor Chicago neighborhood. The economic chaos caused the implosion of Walker Ventures, his Chicago real estate firm.

But first Walker had to figure out how he went from fat NBA paychecks to financial rock bottom.

“I gave them whatever they wanted and spoiled them. Instead of thinking about the future, he spent lavishly on cars, jewelry and homes.

But like many professional athletes who experience a sudden explosion of wealth, it was all gone in an instant. “It ended up being an open ATM throughout my career.”

He also lost large sums of money gambling, although Walker insists this wasn’t the main cause of his financial collapse and that media reports are overblown. He estimates he helped about 30 people move to “better situations.” He gave cash to many of them — often without holding them accountable.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, Walker had unwisely put up his personal financial portfolio as collateral.

As part of his gig with Morgan Stanley, Walker recently spoke to athletes at Boston College and the Seattle Seahawks about his mistakes.

Walker filed for bankruptcy in 2010.

Before the age of 20, he had won the NCAA basketball championship and was selected by the Boston Celtics as a top pick in the 1996 NBA Draft. Despite pulling down more than $108 million during his career, Walker filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2010, just two years after retirement.

“I created a very expensive lifestyle. “Be prepared to use that word a lot,” he said.

Given his humble beginnings, Walker wanted his friends and family to enjoy his riches as well.

Real-life parables: Now that he’s out of bankruptcy, Walker is working to educate future sports stars. He was named to the All-Star team three times and won the top prize in pro basketball with the Miami Heat in 2006. Walker quickly became a basketball superstar.

“I thought I was set for the rest of my life,” Walker told CNNMoney.

Advice for today’s stars: Walker has two simple pieces of advice he hopes the younger generate walks away with.

The hope is that these “real-life parables” from Walker and Scott will educate the younger athletes, Drew Hawkins, head of Morgan Stanley’s global sports and entertainment division, told CNNMoney. “My story is sad. Walker didn’t serve jail time due to a plea agreement, but the former NBA star was ordered to pay off gambling debts. A year later he pleaded guilty to felony bad check charges, according to court filings.

“We got caught in the recession.

Real estate firm goes bust: The real catalyst, Walker said, was the Great Recession. It went bad.

“These individuals are forced to make decisions as teenagers and these decisions impact them for a long time,” said Hawkins. Walker and former NFL linebacker Bart Scott recently teamed up with Morgan Stanley Global Sports & Entertainment to bring real-life lessons to today’s players. He’s working on “Gone in an Instant,” a documentary about his personal boom-to-bust tale. That’s how you lose your wealth real bad at the beginning,” Walker said. He ended up being forced to pay back about $20 million to banks.

2) Think about the future, not just the here and now.

1) Get the word “no” in your vocabulary when dealing with friends and family. You can’t do that,” Walker said.

That’s why Walker, now 38, is now working to steer young athletes away from the mistakes he made.

Review: Richard Gere too good to ignore in ‘Arbitrage’

For proof that we’re in financial hell, look around. And it resonates in his exceptional screenplay, which potently captures the gleaming seduction of Robert’s world and the fear that festers underneath.

Gere’s Robert Miller is the picture of unflappable elegance. And Gere knows the man, inside and out. At 62, he is at the peak of his powers. But Robert keeps his cool until the sudden death of one of these women has him dodging a possible murder rap with the grudging help of Jimmy Grant (a terrific Nate Parker), the son of the family chauffeur and the only black man in Robert’s circle of white privilege. Watch him in the scene when Sarandon — in full, feisty flower — hits Robert with a lifetime of resentments. She can’t rock his composure. No Academy love, not even for his sinister brilliance in “Internal Affairs,” “American Gigolo” and “The Hoax,” or for the battered heart he brought to the cheated-on husband in “Unfaithful.”

Gere’s performance in “Arbitrage” is too good to ignore. Wearing the trappings of wealth like a second skin, Gere invites us to see what Robert sees. That’s when NYPD detective Michael Bryer (Tim Roth) smells a rat and Robert’s world begins to unravel.. But Gere gives us a window into the soul of a man who finally realizes that even money will no longer help him lie to himself. Despite his box-office success in crowd-pleasers such as “An Officer and a Gentleman,” “Pretty Woman” and “Chicago,” Gere has long been underrated. “Arbitrage” is such a movie, a sinfully entertaining look at the sins committed in the name of money. As the son of two commodities traders, Jarecki has Wall Street in his DNA. It’s an implosive tour de force.

Jarecki knows the territory. Credit Jarecki, whose combustible directing debut gives “Arbitrage” the charge of a thriller and the provocation of a moral fable. Jarecki has an eye for the telling detail, not surprising given his start with the 2005 documentary “The Outsider” (about rogue director James Toback). Gere digs so deep into this flawed tycoon that we come to understand Robert’s actions without for a minute forgiving them. True, this territory has been covered from Wall Street to last year’s “Margin Call.” But Gere and first-time director Nicholas Jarecki put a tantalizing spin on what goes on in the head of a fraudulent hedge-fund manager when he decides to stick it to the rest of us, including his own family.

Like the best movies, “Arbitrage” persuades us to ask tough questions about ourselves. Good job on that, since he’s just lost $400 million in a bad copper-mine investment, and if he can’t cover it up and unload his company on a major bank, his career will go kaput along with his fortune. His rapt, watchful performance is a thing of toxic beauty. And Gere nails every nuance in a role that holds up a dark mirror to the way we live now. And the glamour in his field of vision — cheers to cinematographer Yorick Le Saux (I Am Love) for the sheen and composer Cliff Martinez (Drive) for the seductive mood — is tempting enough to make us all complicit.

Story highlightsRichard Gere stars as a fraudulent financier in the filmCritic says Gere’s performance is “a thing of toxic beauty”The movie also stars Susan Sarandon and Laetitia Casta

It’s instructive to note what a killer actor Richard Gere can be when a movie rises to his level.

There’s enough plot here to stuff a miniseries or three, yet “Arbitrage” never descends to bland and predictable. Docs run in the Jarecki family, with half brothers Andrew (“Capturing the Friedmans”) and Eugene (“Why We Fight”) making notable contributions to the genre. Fraud puts pressure on Robert’s skill at deceiving wife Ellen (Susan Sarandon), French mistress Julie (Laetitia Casta) and chief accountant Brooke (Brit Marling), who also happens to be his daughter

Thing’s To Do In Vegas When You’re Wed

A little advice first though; make sure to take a couple of rolls of quarters and some single bills with you, as this will allow you to drink on the cheap. 

There is some fantastic daytime musical entertainment in the casino’s and bars that line the Strip, all of which are free for anyone to go in and watch. And then there are the chapels; hidden among the drive-thru wedding places and chapels that have fat Elvis marry you, there are a few real gems. Sure you may roll snake eyes every once in a while, but there is also the chance that you will find blue eyes that you would be willing to stare into until you draw your last breath.

A lot of huge celebrities visit Vegas regularly, especially on a big fight night, but by day your best chance of cozying up to a star is to get your picture taken with one of the look-a-likes. Folks in Vegas can’t resist a newlywed, and you’ll have no problem talking them down, especially if you gush about how beautiful your new wife is.. If you would like to have a drink while you dance, then hit the nearest slot machine, drop a few quarters, and wait for the waitress to come and take your order. There are Elvis’s everywhere, but keep your eyes peeled and you might just land a cool photo op that will fool your friends.

A Little Romantic TimeVegas by night.

If you are looking for a perfect way to get out of the desert heat for a bit, then it’s fun to explore the inside of the hotels. People tend to think of Las Vegas as a place that comes alive at night, with nothing to do during the daytime but sit and gamble. There are those who would choose to play it safe, and never take the chance at rolling the dice, but where’s the fun in that. This offers a great opportunity for you to test your haggling skills, as most shop owners are more than willing to negotiate a price on anything in their store. That doesn’t mean that the new happy couple should split whatever money they have left and go their own way. Instead, I recommend finding a slot machine game that is fun (Monopoly is my personal favorite) and then sitting side by side and playing together. 

The Vegas Strip looks totally different without the neon glow, but if you take your time to stroll up and down the street, you can see a lot of things you would otherwise miss at night. If you are looking to save time as well as money, then try to locate a chapel that is close to city hall, as you will have to take care of all your marriage licenses and paperwork, then drop it off at the chapel. Vegas vacation packages tend to either run from Thursday to Sunday or Monday to Thursday, with the latter costing much less. Gambling is a lot like love; you can’t win if you don’t take a chance.

A newlyweds guide to Sin City.

Las Vegas is a city that’s not exactly known for its romantic side, yet hundreds of thousands of people flock there very year to tie the knot. It’s amazing what you can find, and maybe you’ll even be lucky enough to find a great, affordable piece of art that looks just like your new bride. There are a lot of unique stores located inside the Las Vegas hotels, and they never ever seem to be crowded. It’s best to get down there a day or two in advance so that you don’t have to stress about it on your big day.

A Little Fun After The Wedding.Eat, drink & hang with the stars.

If you are heading to Vegas with the sole purpose of getting married, then you are missing out on a great opportunity to have some fun. That perception is generally spoken by people who have never been, or whom partied a little too hard at night and missed everything that the daylight hours had to offer.

It’s always best to wait until the last night to have some gambling fun, as you know exactly how much money you have left at that point, and it’s wise to never bet more than you can afford to lose. The hotel is beautiful in itself, but when the music starts to play, and the water starts to dance, it becomes a moment that truly encapsulates the romance of Vegas, and perhaps explains why so many are drawn there to wed.

A Little Gambling AdviceSave it till the end.

Heading to Las Vegas to get married is a wholly different proposition than going there with a bunch of the boys, or girls, and the goal becomes avoiding trouble rather than seeking it out. Best of all, they will put together a package that includes flowers, video, photos, a limo ride to and from your hotel, and even a live internet feed so that family can watch, no matter where in the world they are located. If you are not dead set on a weekend wedding, then you can save some money tight of the bat. Las Vegas hotels will up their rates for the weekend, which means that you can get a great hotel like the Luxor at an incredible price if you are willing to forego the weekend.

The magic of Las Vegas truly is at night though, and if you want a special moment with your loved one, where you can seem to feel as though you are the only people there, despite being surrounded by a throng of tourists, then I suggest the water show at the Bellagio Hotel. Booze is free as long as you are gambling, but be sure to give the girl a tip when she brings it. The show runs every 15 or 20 minutes, and the key is to get there early so that you can get a spot near the front. I understand that doesn’t necessarily make it free, but it’s a lot less than you would pay at the casino bar.

The same rules apply for flights, and a Monday departure will not come anywhere near as expensive as a Friday or Saturday flight. That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t enjoy some of the city’s sins, and the easiest way to do that is with a spot of gambling. Many of them have really cool little features inside, such as gondola rides at The Venetian, and an indoor thunderstorm at Planet Hollywood, but it’s actually fun to just take a peek into some of the shops. It may seem odd that a city that sells itself on sin should open its arms to those looking to make an honest woman out the one they love, yet they keep on coming, and when you really think about it, getting hitched in Vegas isn’t such a crazy idea.

A Wedding & Honeymoon All In One

Las Vegas is actually a great place to get married for the couple who are on something of a tight budget

Sports Arbitrage: Is It Really “Risk-Free”? by Timothy Rohrer

It seems pretty simple and easy, but it is actually fairly complicated and rare.

Arbitrage is possible when one of three conditions is met: The same asset does not trade at the same price on all markets, two assets with identical cash flows do not trade at the same price, and/or an asset with a known price in the future does not today trade at its future price. . In the currency market, for example: if $1.00 in U.S. dollars, then an arbitrage trader can start with $1.00 and earn $1.064 thus earning a profit of 6.4 percent. Another problem is that there are often deposit and withdrawal costs which have the potential to negate any profit that may have been made. Each bookmaker weighs their odds so that no one customer can cover all outcomes at a profit against their books. Today, there are many internet bookmakers who offer odds on the outcome of the same event. Different bookmakers may offer different odds on the same outcome of a given event; by taking the best odds offered by each bookmaker, a customer can under some circumstances cover all possible outcomes of the event and assure that they receive a small risk-free profit. There are several software packages available that actually seek out these arb opportunities.

In the financial world, an arbitrage represents the purchase of securities on one market for immediate resale on another market in order to profit from a price discrepancy. Copyright 2006 Timothy Rohrer

Although the term, arbitrage, is mainly applied to trading in financial instruments, such as bonds, stocks, derivatives and currencies, it can also be used in the world of sports betting. currency buys 0.7 British pounds currency, £1 in British currency buys 9.5 French francs, and 1 French franc buys 0.16 in U.S. This results in immediate risk-free profit.
