Smart Box Series: Apollo 17
By Marc Lawrence
When U.S. space shuttle Apollo 17 returned safely to earth December 19, 1972 after landing on the moon, it was the sixth and last Apollo mission in which humans walked on the lunar surface.
Safe to say that after over 300 hours of elapsed time, the performance of the spacecraft was excellent for all aspects of the mission.
The Apollo program totaled 17 missions in all and included the only 12 humans to have ever set foot on another solar system body. Total funding of the Apollo program was $20.4 billion dollars, which by today’s government bailout standards appears to be a bargain.
In the world of college football, teams returning home for a season ending conference affair with a crew of 17 or more returning starters have been especially adept in these games when seeking revenge as they have logged a 35-22-1 ATS record in these games since 1990 - provided they are not taking on angry foe off a SU favorite loss in its last game.
Closing out this year’s campaign we find Kent State, Memphis and Tennessee preparing for splashdown.
Better yet, if they own a .400 or greater record they improve to 26-10-1 ATS. With that you can eliminate the Tigers and the Vols from the list above to find this year’s qualifier.
And best of all, if these same .400 or greater teams average 130 or more rushing YPG on the season they rocket to 22-4 ATS in these games, winning 19 of the 26 games in straight-up fashion. Look for Kent State to put the final wraps on a successful journey when they return home for the final time this Saturday.

The visitors hand the ball to Chad Bettis (6-5, 5.84 ERA) who was rocked for seven runs off 12 hits with three walks over five innings in a fortunate no-decision vs. the Diamondback on Sunday. Bettis has been particularly poor in this spot all year, sporting a 5.23 ERA on the road and an even worse 2-4, 6.25 ERA in all “night” games. The home side counters with Scott Kazmir (6-3, 4.67) who notched a win vs. the Pirates in his last outing despite giving up four runs off four hits and four walks over five innings. Note that Kazmir owns a pedestrian 4.00 ERA in front of the home town crowd this year. Game-to-game consistency has plagued each of these starters, consider a second look at the OVER in this one.
