All gone. We have fallen on hard times. Road trips which were a few hours in the company jet are different now.

Me and my FishDuck research assistant just outside of Boulder last Friday.

It has gotten bad enough that I need to take on a second job. But what should I do?

I decided to take a look at my skill set. What are my strengths? What can I offer that no one else can? Then it came to me! I’m a degenerate gambler!

Boy, do I feel better. Obviously gambling on football can and will make me rich. But I don’t want to be just rich for myself. I want to take you, my loyal FishDuck.com reader on the ride with me.

That’s why I am giving to you, free of charge, my college football selections for this week. Not only will you get the picks, but the research behind the picks. Are you ready? Here we go!

Bowling Green -13.5 versus UMass 

Because bowlers are some of the best athletes I've ever seen.

He saw his first Oregon game in 1977 and never missed a home game from 1981 until a bout with pneumonia cut his streak short in 1997. He was one of the proud 3200 on a bitterly cold night in Shreveport, Louisiana in 1989 for the Independence Bowl, and continues to be big supporter of Oregon sports. He is an active participant on the various Oregon Ducks messageboards as "TacomaDuck."
