“You got a lotta nerve to say you are my friend,
When I was down, you just stood there grinning.
You got a lotta nerve to say you got a helping hand to lend,
You just want to be on the side that’s winning.”
It’s hard staying positive in these difficult times. It can often times be an exercise in frustration and humiliation when some of the things we’ve learned to like and love in the course of our lives changes as the economy continues to erode.
Lifestyle changes become the norm rather than the exception. It’s also a time when you find out exactly who your real friends are. Those willing to stand by you without benefit of personal gain or profit through good times and bad. That’s what separates the wheat from the chaff. Unconditional support.
So it is in the world of college football, too… especially for teams that are suddenly wallowing on bad times after having performed so admirably the year before.
These teams also become major moneymakers in the right role. That happens when we –

Talk about hitting a positive note: these bowlers that opened the season 0-2 before finally cracking the win column in Game Three have gone 23-6-1 ATS in all Game Fours since 1990.
Last year, a torn and troubled North Carolina squad wracked by injuries and suspensions qualified when they laid 14.5 points to a resurgent East Carolina team. Pride reared its head when the Tar Heels trounced the Pirates, 42-17.
This week we’re positively optimistic about the chances of East Carolina and Troy remaining on the winning track this week.
By the way, there is a 13-0 ATS perfect ‘play on’ subset inside this strategy. You can check out our website at www.PLAYBOOK.com and click on the 2011 BLACK BOOK SYSTEMS link inside the BETTING TOOLS menu on the home page for all the details.
So, as legendary singer and songwriter Bob Dylan puts it, when you find a good team that’s gone bad early on in the season, remember his sage words of advice:
“You say I let you down, you know it’s not like that.
If you’re so hurt why then don’t you show it?
You say you lost your faith but that’s not where it’s at.
You have no faith to lose and you know it…”
