The Regular Usual

Life Begins Outside Your Comfort Zone

The Regular Usual: 2 Year Anniversary Episode

Wow.

I can’t believe it’s been over 6 months since I recorded a podcast.

If you’ve never listened to one of my podcast’s before or are curious about the person I am behind closed doors, this one is on the level of my very first episodes where I open up entirely and give the dirt on what’s been going on in my life over the past few months.

Listen the first episode here that I reference frequently in this pod.

If you wanna reach out, hit me at theregularusual@gmail.com or on Facebook or Twitter.

Any feedback, positive or negative, means everything.

Thank you for listening.

More to come in the future.

Well, if you’re following me on Twitter or friends on Facebook, then you’ll know the details.

For those of you left in the dark, I leave you with picks and a video to brighten your day.

The Regular Usual: College Football Show – Bowl Season Pt. 3 2016

Really hoping everyone enjoyed their holiday break and didn’t lose too much money if you followed all of my picks.

Last week wasn’t ideal especially if you’re a fan of watching teams with winning records go head to head.

Regardless, late last night and today is when things get interesting and more ranked teams get to throw down.

I cover a butt load of games in this week’s episode and I didn’t even get into Saturday’s slate.

Without further ado, please up your cooking knowledge with some more Matty Matheson and be sure to check the picks below.

The Regular Usual: College Football Show – Bowl Season Pt. 2 2016

During this week’s pod I:

  • Mention two friends by name on the episode for various reasons.
  • Go over the swag bags that the players are awarded.
    • *Hint the Dollar General Bowl is a sleeping swag giant*
  • Give shouts to the Touching Base Podcast (peep the 24:50 mark)
  • Do what I do every week, attempt to win on the betting side of college football

After going 1-5 last week, I was so trash I thought Patrick McClymont had invaded my picks (Much love Pat).

I gotta do better this week and I have 10 games to prove myself worthy of your of your time for simply checking this page out.

PS – No intro music. You’ve been spoiled

Be sure to check out this week’s video.

The Regular Usual: College Football Show – Bowl Season Pt. 1 2016

Guess who went undefeated in Conference Championship week?

That’s right. Your boy J. It may have taken all season but dammit son we got one!

While my main season record left me at 46% there’s still a chance to break .500 with bowl season.

I’m breaking bowl season into multiple parts because it keeps the shows short and gives me an opportunity for content each week.

The Regular Usual: College Football Show – Conference Championship Week 2016

Last week I took some L’s and I’m not ashamed to own up to it.

Two wins and a push? The pipe dream of a Pro Handicapper in Vegas is essentially over.

But cry not dear reader for my losses, win percentage, and speech impediment…

  • Cry for the closing week of the regular season.
  • Cry for the College Football Playoff only allowing 4 teams in and you’re a Michigan fan.
  • Cry for officiating that’s certainly given your team the shaft on a bogus call and an extra loss.
  • Cry because it’s good for the sou…nevermind. You get the picture.

Strap in boys & girls. Bowl season is right around the corner.

The Regular Usual: College Football Show – Week 13 2016

It’s finally Rivalry Week and shit might possibly go down.

If by some chance #TEAMCHAOS makes an appearance, it would be welcomed with open arms by viewers like me.

After a financially successful Week 12, I have my fingers crossed the $$$ keeps rolling in.

This weekend offers a lot of showdowns between rivals and I’m not just referring to the competition you have with your cousins over Thanksgiving dinner. (Bad joke)

With Fan Questions, another edition of Would You Rather, and 7 games to breakdown, you’ve done enough reading.

The Regular Usual – College Football Show: Week 12 2016

#TEAMCHAOS was in full effect last weekend with hella ranked teams being upset.

I for one am hyped to see the proverbial wrench thrown in the system.

Even though the latest CFP rankings are out and your team isn’t in the Top 4, #TEAMCHAOS is still accepting applications for the last 2 weeks of November.

That being said, bring your spotty beards and leave you protest signs at the door. We have chaos to observe.

The Regular Usual: College Football Show – Week 11 2016

1-4 last week left me feeling salty. Seems like I’m forever chasing that 50% win rate that seems to get farther and farther from my grasp.

However, another week of playing it safe and running those #CheapBets put us back in the green.

The 2nd edition of fan questions goes off without a hitch and my answers might surprise you.

Anyways, I have brief breakdowns for 6 games this weekend on with my picks ATS.

Be sure to peep the highlight video and vibe to intro music on the podcast.

The Regular Usual: College Football Show – Week 10 2016

3-3 isn’t great but it’s no where near as garbage as Week 9.

Last week we played it safe, stuck to the game plan and didn’t completely lose ass.

From here on out, NO MORE NFL bets. Those are killing me (6-16 on the year).

Team Dollar $igns AKA The Colorado Buffaloes are back in play this week so you know we’re betting on them.

Tried something new this week with an open Q&A for listeners that ended with me in frying pan for a minute, but I’m a better person for it.

I think…
