I ran into Buddy the book at one of his Kaisertown hot spots for a little lunch and small talk this past week. Buddy announced he was giving out refunds to all his clients, based on his USC Blue Ribbon special,  which saw him take it on the chin with a disappointing loss to Notre Dame.  Buddy said, “Hell – if my good buddy Lane Kiffin doesn’t call that time out- we win!” Also, if Matt Barkley was healthy, the Trojan faithful would have seen a positive result. Congrats to ND on a stellar defensive stance with approximately 7 defensive stops in a goal line situation.”
Plays of the week-Chicago -7 over a hurting Seahawk crew (Steroid abuse by 2 defensive starters) that will make it easy pickings for Jay Cutler. San Fran (-7) over St.Louis Looks like Humperdinkle is gonna give my good buddy Jeff Fisher headaches. New England (7.5) over Miami- Pats are ready to roll on into playoffs unless Fitzpatrick stops them? Boing! Belichick! Belichik! Belichik!  Phila (+10) over Dallas this is gonna be a yawner, but I like the eagles with the points.  Miracles can happen!
Southeast Conference Championship in Hotatlanta- I have to go with one of Belichik’s protege in Nick Saban (another good buddy of mine).  I think the Crimson Tide will be up to the  task. Tide (-7) over Georgia. Early Xmas presents to put your local odds makers out of business. All  gold platinum members will continue to receive plenty of charitable gifts from Buddy the Book.  Speaking of charity has the Ninj been giving back to the local food bank during weekend free time?????
Buddy the book will be vacationing in Miami for the next several weeks.  The rumor has it that he will be relaxing with his good friends Jimmy Johnson, Pat Reilly and Bill Parcels.  He will also be attending the national championship.
