(DISCLAIMER: This game is for entertainment purposes only. No actual money is being wagered.)

We’re all excited for tonight’s big game. Because the USF football fan base is a weird mix of gloom, doom, misery, disaster, fatalism, and an undying belief that their team can pull massive upsets. None of which is unfounded.

So let’s get right to this week’s picks, as of about 9 AM Friday morning. There were several weeknight games that have already resulted in some wins and losses:

The big news is leader BullsOnParade96 winning another 722.40, on a weeknight MAC parlay. He built a huge lead on that Louisiana-Monroe upset of Liberty, and no challenger has emerged from the field. He’s also crushing the field in the points race, because he’s had the best weekly score 4 of the 10 weeks so far, and this week looks to make it 5 of 11. But he’s almost equally capable of huge losses. Here’s his weekly total for each week this season:

bullsonparade96 1 370.00
bullsonparade96 2 690.00
bullsonparade96 3 -452.50
bullsonparade96 4 -339.38
bullsonparade96 5 -245.88
bullsonparade96 6 -248.09
bullsonparade96 7 4011.50
bullsonparade96 8 1476.09
bullsonparade96 9 -1502.94
bullsonparade96 10 -427.20
bullsonparade96 11 622.40

It looks like the back of Adam Dunn’s baseball card. Everything is either a strikeout or a 900-foot home run.

One additional note: it’s not listed above, but McIntyre2K7 has made his Last Chance Bet on USF to cover versus Cincinnati. If they do, he will get an additional “loan” of 500 units to continue playing this season. Defdans and Undercoverbull have also run out of units, but both have winning futures bets locked in (Illinois over 3.5 wins, UCF under 9.5 wins, SMU over 6.5 games) so they will have some money to play championship week, and bowl season.

So good luck to everyone, especially the typically large number of us who bet on USF! Whatever happens, it feels like the USF fan base is enjoying football again, and that’s a good thing. If you still need a reason to be optimistic, here’s one:

Every pro wrestling fan knows that when you leave the promotion, you lose the belt.
