It’s been a profitable month for Al McMordie on the college hardwood, going 77-64-2 over the last month and reeling in a profit of $6,530. March is fast approaching, as is your time to catch on these superb picks.
You know that nagging fly that just hovers around you and doesn’t want to leave because it thinks your body is a prime piece of real estate that can just annoy you for the remainder of time?
I love how I talked all that trash to Alabama just now, only to look at Vanderbilt’s record and see that The Commodores have only three fewer wins than said Alabama.
I feel like we are at an impasse with this game, and I am left here thinking that Alabama will get the job done. Will that result in another rise into the rankings as to a top 20 spot? That remains to be seen and I don’t know if I want to stick around to see if that actually happens.
