The Regular Usual: College Football Show – Bowl Season Pt. 3 2017

*UPDATED 1/11/17*

Guess who had straight trash picks last week?

*Looks to the left, to the right, looks in mirror*

Me

I went 2-6 last week and I can’t even lie, that shit hurt my soul and even my feelings a bit if I’m being completely transparent.

My excuses as are follows:

  • I haven’t been watching these games due to holidays
  • I have ZERO idea how these early teams played this season because they aren’t ranked
  • I’ve lost my touch, my mojo, and I’m approaching washed up levels at a rapid pace

But let’s be real, these games have kinda been a miss and my interest has been lacking without high profile games in the mix.

No one has time for these excuses but maybe you do have time for this week’s #WouldYouRather that was sent in and if you’d like to submit you own fo Friday’s podcast you have the following options:

  1. Call or text 813-856-9093
  2. Email theregularusual@gmail.com
  3.  DM me on Twitter (@JDASH325) or Instagram (@jord.ash325)

And if you’re really feeling invested in the podcast and my picks, I highly encourage you to head over to Bovada and set up your own account before the College Football Playoff kicks off. Don’t fuck around, do it.

The Regular Usual: College Football Show – Bowl Season Pt. 2 2017

*UPDATED 12/26/17*

Audio is back on point this week and today’s podcast is a short episode focusing on the bowl games taking place prior to Christmas.

After going 3-3 last week, I’d be hyped AF with a 5-3 or 8-0 week and up that win percentage, but if you’re a person who’s here for the pesos, I’d recommend you download then move along because picking games with teams I’m very unfamiliar with is a crapshoot.

However if you enjoy living on the edge and wanna join me in throwing $$$ at teams you know nothing about, click this link to set up your own Bovada account for a deposit bonus up to $250 and get this, you can even deposit some of your precious #Bitcoin for an extra bonus.

Only 1 question made the Hotline and it was via text, but if you have your own you’d like to submit you can:

  1. Call or text 813-856-9093
  2. Email theregularusual@gmail.com
  3.  DM me on Twitter (@JDASH325) or Instagram (@jord.ash325)

If you’re stumped on what to send, hit me with your best #WouldYouRather questions. Best one’s make the next episode.

Short week, shorter write up. On to the picks

The Regular Usual: College Football Show – Bowl Season Pt. 1 2017

*UPDATED 12/17/17*

After last weekend’s snowy ass Army/Navy game, we’re finally to the best part of the year for any gambling degenerate…

BOWL SEASON

Now’s when you can turn the fortunes back in your favor if you ended up in the red during the regular season OR fall even deeper in the hole and end up pawning your Xmas gifts to pay back your bookie (I’d say pawning your Hanukkah gifts but everyone knows Jews are better with $$$ and don’t gamble)

But if you’re degenerate scum like me, now’s the time to get in on the action and not miss the bus like your co-worker Karen did on #Bitcoin.

How you ask? By clicking this link to set up your own Bovada account where they’ll match your deposit up to $250. That’s better than your 401K

This week’s podcast (other than fucked up audio) consists of a single Listener Voicemail, thoughts on coaching hires, and of course game break downs

If you’d like to leave me a Voicemail about ANYTHING call 813-856-9093 and I’ll play the call on air next week. If you’d rather be a secretive bitcc-boi/gal you can always email me at theregularusual@gmail.com or hit me up on Twitter (JDASH325)
