Stinkin Thinkin with Stanley's Stinkers

Stanley's Stinkers week 9 (games 10/25/14)

Upsets continue to define the 2014 college football season but a few near-misses and blow-outs have been added for special effect. Stanley’s Stinkers survived a few of those upsets last weekend and finished with a 30-10 record.     

   For the year, we are still correct in eight out of every ten games. That is really not bad considering the fact that we never back down from the big match-ups. We use Reverse Prognostication to predict the losers in the toughest college gridiron games.

   A number of great finishes highlighted week five of the college football season and things are starting to even out near the top. That goes the same for us. Stanley’s Stinkers finished the weekend with a 33-7 record bringing our overall mark to eight-two percent.
   But, that is not really bad considering the fact that we never back down from the big games.

There were more surprises in week four of the college football season. We saw a few of those coming but a few caught us flat-footed. After the dust settled, Stanley’s Stinkers finished the week with a combined 31-9 record so our season success rate is still around eight-two percent.

Week three of the college football season certainly had a few surprises. Some of those we saw coming. A few were just plain shocking. Nonetheless, Stanley’s Stinkers survived with a 29-11 record bringing our overall success rate to eighty-three percent. That’s not bad, though, considering the fact that we never back down from the big games. We use Reverse Prognostication to predict the losers in college football’s biggest battles.

Week two of the college football season goes down in the books as a disappointment for some teams while other schools walked away with a better idea of what it takes to win. We fall into the latter of the two groups.

Stanley’s Stinkers finished the week with a 35-5 record, bringing our overall success rate down just a bit  to 88.7%. But, that is really not bad considering the fact that we never back down from the big games.

PRLog - Sep. 4, 2014 - ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- After starting the season with a 35-4 record, Stanley Reese, the host of the nationally syndicated Stanley's Stinkers show has released his bold predictions for week two. And it's not going over well in the Wolverine State.

"I didn't realize that I had actually picked both Michigan State and Michigan to lose in the same weekend," Reese said from his home in Huntsville, Alabama. "Both teams play tough games and, looking at the stats, I made my best prediction.

Week 2 of the 2014 season

The 2014 college football season finally got underway last weekend and there was plenty of action all across the country. There was even a game across the pond.

So, while the dog days of summer might leave some fans with visions of splendor, there is always one team out there that is ready to take down those big dogs. That is what makes college football so fun.

Stanley’s Stinkers registered a final score of 35-4 in the opening week and that’s not bad at all considering the fact that we never back down from the tough match-ups.

Newspaper version, week 1 2014

The 2014 College Football season gets started this weekend and there are a number of really good games to watch. Last year, we were right in eight out of ten games which was tough enough because we never back down from the marquee games. We use Reverse Prognostication to predict the losers in college football's biggest games. With that said, here are the games we will be watching.

Does Lane Kiffin Still Have Deflated Balls?

During the 2012 college football season, controversy arose in the Pac 12 conference and across all of college football when USC was accused of using footballs which were not properly inflated.

I reported the story soon after it came to light. Well, I guess I used a little tongue-in-cheek humor so you can call it reporting if you want to.

"Test Each Players Balls Before Every Game" was the headline and I even started a Change.org petition to try and get enough signatures to present to the NCAA.

Test Each Player's Balls Before Every Game

(This story was originally posted in the Stinkin' Thinkin' blog during the 2012 season while Lane Kiffin was still a successful head coach for the Trojans.)

Lane Kiffin, the heralded coach for the USC Trojans has deflated balls. Well, I guess we should use past tense. He HAD deflated balls.They’re pumped up now.
 
During a recent game against Oregon, the Trojans were playing with their deflated balls and were caught red handed by the Conference Commissioner. The team didn’t deny playing with their deflated balls.
