SEPTEMBER 1, 2015 -- Greetings, everyone. We’ve been here all year, enjoying NBA, College Hoops, Baseball and even a nice run in our Thoroughbred Racing, but hello again to the Football folks. People I know who aren’t into the week-to-week football guessing game that we all like to play want to know who I think will win the National Championship this year.’ I say, “I don’t know.” They say, ‘But you’re supposed to know.’ So I say, “Ohio State.” And they say, ‘Didn’t they win it last year?’ And I say, ‘Yes, but Urban Meyer has found better ways to cheat and not get caught than Nick Saban has.’ We just don’t operate that way. We go week to week. Right now, we have one goal. Be the best team we can possibly be in Week 1 of the College Football season. Part of that goal is to match last season’s Week 1 College Football mark of 3-0 in Best Bets. We’ll worry about the National Championship Game when it comes, about 3.5 months from now. MORE
