NFL picks for tomorrow...

Hey kids...
The Turzman here. And for those interested, here are my picks for week 1 of the new NFL season.
The first team is my pick to win, straight up (no point spreads have been factored),
and the home team is in CAPS.
If an asterisk (*) appears after the matchup, it means I think it will be a close game and the spread should be considered before betting.
Here goes...

NEW ENGLAND over Indianapolis *

ST. LOUIS over Arizona
Cincinnati over NEW YORK JETS
BUFFALO over Jacksonville *
San Diego over HOUSTON
Tampa Bay over WASHINGTON
Atlanta over SAN FRANCISCO
PHILADELPHIA over New York Giants *
Baltimore over CLEVELAND
CHICAGO over Detroit *
PITTSBURGH over Oakland
Seattle over NEW ORLEANS *
Tennessee over MIAMI
MINNESOTA over Dallas *
DENVER over Kansas City *

CAROLINA over Green Bay *
53 combined total points.

Good luck, handicappers.
C-ya next time,

Coyote Athletics update...

Hey kids,
Sorry for the 2 day delay, but it was a holiday weekend after a women's volleyball tournament and I was wiped clean of all energy. But do not fret my friends, because here is your Coyote Athletics update of last weekend's action...

The women's soccer team split another weekend, beginning on Sept. 3 with an exciting 3-2 OT victory over Western Oregon in round 1 of the Lumberjack Classic at Humbolt St. Junior outside half Valerie Evans scored the winning goal in the second overtime. On Sept.5 however, the ladies dropped a 1- nil heartbreaker to host Humbolt St. on an unassisted goal from Lesa Lewis in the 63rd minute of the contest. Overall, women's soccer here at CSUSB are 2-2.

Men's soccer did not fare as well, dropping two losses in the Seawolf Classic men's soccer tourney, Sept. 4-6. The first loss was to Seattle Pacific on the strength of two early goals, both coming within the first half-hour of play. That's all they would need, as the Yote's were shut out, 2-nil. The second loss was to the Vikings of Western Washington University, a 3-1 defeat in the final match of the tournament. Overall, men's soccer here at CSUSB are also 2-2.

The Coyote cross-country team saw their first action against other teams at the Cal State Fullerton Season Preview Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 4. Overall, the Coyotes finished 12th in a twenty team field as junior Tanya Zeferjahn placed 42nd overall and was the top finisher for the 'Yotes.

Women's volleyball completed a clean sweep on the second day of the Coyote Classic Tourney. They defeated Fort Hays St. 3-1 and just destroyed the tough Nebraska-Omaha team, 3-0. Senior outside hitter Brianna Harris (she says to just call her Brie) earned tourney MVP honors due to a relentless attack in which she attempted and scored more kills than anyone else over the two days, by far. She averaged well over 40 attacks per match, and well over 20 kills per match. At 7-1 heading into conference play, the women's volleyball team looks like it will once again dominate the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) despite losing five seniors (four starters) to graduation.

That's all for now, kids. Best regards to all, and don't take any shit from anybody.
