    Three seconds left, officially. What an insane play. A heave into triple coverage, and the three defenders all wiped each other out while the receiver went up and got the ball.
    Tulane completed seven passes in the game. Three of them were touchdowns of 38, 48 and 53 yards. Tulane's QB was 7-of-20 for 186 yards.

    And, Tulane committed, like, 10 penalties on offense, mostly false starts. Crazy. Also worth noting Green Wave QB Justin MacMillan is LSU transfer, and WR who caught 2 TDs including game-winner is Jalen McCleskey, OK State transfer whose dad is an assistant at Tulane.

    Best of all, some of us had Tulane -5 and had written that off at 28-7... and, again, at 31-28.

    Thank you, Green Wave.

    I could talk for an hour about the defense on that last Tulane td.
    First off, two of the three converging at the ball flat out missed the receiver. The third guy tried to tackle without using his hands or arms. It was the weirdest non tackle I've seen in a while.

    Then, what was the last guy doing? He escorted the Tulane receiver into the end zone. Always staying one yard away. Any thought to dive at him? Dive for a strip? No? You're just going to escort him all the way to the end zone?

    Are you gambling guys getting standard payouts on your football bets? i.e., you are paying 11:10 on a standard bet?
    6:1 plus bet on 3 team parlay?

    And what state do you gamble from?

    I'm just trying to figure out what I am missing in California.

    All replies wanted.

    Green Wave wearing blue uniforms. Unusual.

    Went into a restaurant last night. My wife glanced at the TV and asked who was playing. I looked up and said, hmmm, North Carolina and Arkansas?

    At least Houston had red numbers and a red helmet. Yes I am a dinosaur but I just don't understand it when schools don't wear their school colors. You mentioned Carolina, they even have a color named after them (Carolina blue, duh) and still sometimes wear Duke-colored Navy blue jerseys.

    I’ll just say I’m Midwest but I can gamble in my basement. It’s beautiful. Like being in Vegas.

    However, it also means I can live bet and that is the devil. I’ve done a nice job the last week getting away from it.

    Live betting losses took out 82% of my pregame betting profit. In the chase to win “middles”, I took too many wins into pushes and took too many losses.

    Thanks and all, but you didn't answer my question. I didn't propose it succinctly enough.
    In vegas, on a standard bet, you gotta bet 11 to win 10.

    Is that what you get? Are they screwing you with a higher vig?

    I am trying to determine if all these states have the same rake as Vegas.

    Even though they're the Green Wave, the baby blue is one of Tulane's primary colors.
