For a team that finished the prior season 3rd in their own division, that was an pretty bold statement.Thus far in 2012, the Panthers only win comes against a winless New Orleans Saints team. In Week 1, they were ...

WEEK 4 – THE FINAL WORD

I had a fantastic Saturday in college football going 3-for-3. I was all over Brandon’s first pick of the day in Clemson (-7) over Boston College.
