Swami The Magazine – Guardians of the Gridiron

Welcome to the 16th Season of Swami the Magazine!! It’s hard to believe it’s been that long…or perhaps if you’re one of my readers, you’ve felt every second of it. Whatever the situation it’s time to get things rolling. For those who may not remember the cast of characters here at StM, here is the annual reminder:

+ The Swami will pick college football games each week. He adds some level of commentary and/or humor to each matchup.

+ The Guru (the official Brother and Legal counsel of the Swami) will pick one game against the Swami each week after Week 1.

+ James and the Swamettes (the official offspring of the Swami) pick NFL games each week once the NFL season starts.

+ And then periodically we get visits from folks like Mrs. Swami, the Homunculus of Hennepin County, Mo Money Mo Hart, and others just to keep things interesting.


Now, this season may be an interesting one for the House of Swam. This are pretty crazy right now so the Swami is likely to toy with a variety of formats and layouts for the 2014 Season. As always, please provide your thoughts on what works for you and what doesn’t over the course of the season.

Now to get this year started, the StM Staff decided that quotes from one of the biggest movies of the summer… The Guardians of the Galaxy. So without any further hesitation… we give you the first edition of The Picks!!

  1. South Dakota State and Mizzou are even money in the City of Lost Wages.

    tOSU is 16.5 point favorites at Navy. I’d be delighted to take Navy and the points.

  2. I was going to say that I don’t consider an article read, until I get Buckeye Will’s commentary, but he already beat me to it…fitting!
