    Nostrajimus predicted UMO would have to score 30+ points to win & BC scored 34-check

    I also predicted the over/under for turnovers would be 3.5 (they had 4)-check

    I also predicted that Was would throw multiple picks-check

    I also stated BC would crush UMO & cover the spread (which was 26.5)-check

    I also stated that the kicking woes would continue w/ kicks 40+ (missed 43 yarder) – check

    It’s not rocket science!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      You are just in love with yourself……aren’t you?   5 of your six sentences involve the subject being yourself…….narcissistic is not a great quality.   Pat yourself on the back…… Who speaks of themselves…….in the third person?

    They know playing against the real professionals won’t get them very far. But it does make some strange sense, I suppose: the Eagles get credit for a win in what amounts to a practice game while the Bears get some money and large print in the Globe, just like the big timers.

    I like how Pete changed the title of this article from BC “pounds” UMO to “Handles”.  Pretty sure that he got a call from his boss, Mr. Abbott ;)

    Losing by 31 pts on only 12 1st downs qualifies as getting “Pounded”, trust me. :)
