Week 8 Pickoff

I know all of our regular reader(s) are waiting with baited breath for this week's post...

Final totals for week 7 -

SAWB 18-18
paT 13-12
Dante 1-6

Overall updated -

SAWB - 104-99-1 - 0.517
paT - 55-71 - 0.437
Dante - 51-61 - 0.455

What'd we learn this week? We learned that there's a reason why the numbers 1 and 2 hold the connotation they do in the common vernacular, because when your team plays like that, they tend to lose.

Pillowfight Pickem's -

Arkansas v Mississippi in what may well be the latest version of Survivor: SEC
Texas A&M v Nebraska - Survivor: Big 12 anyone?
and, because it amuses me so - Miami v Florida State

Super-extra-bonus-no-extra-credit-bonus-pick!!!
Notre Dame to cover the 20 against USC, yea or nay?

get em in.

Well, I wasn't completely correct last week in the idea that the college football storm that is this season would favor ALL the overdogs, especially those ranked #1 & #2, but the storm is abating, and I had my first winning week. So I'm going to stick with it (kinda). All choices from Opening:

If Georgia Tech beats a spread by 25.5, I'll be surprised. Pick: Army +25.5

Penn State - 8 v Indiana

Cincinnati - 10 v Pitt

Oh, look, a game that's score continues to keep Tommy Bowden a job: Clemson - 17 v Central Michigan

Iowa will keep it close (+7) v Perdue (Under 44.5)

South Carolina - 13.5 on Vandy

Tennessee v Alabama is a 0 point spread? Neato. I'll take the home team: Bama Rolls

Wake Forest - 3 v Navy

Mississippi at home + 5.5 to put the nail in Houston nut's coffin just in time for Halloween.

Bowl of the Fired Coaches? Team with the umm, slightly better defense wins: TAMU + 2 v Nebraska

Mizzou - 3.5 v TTU

You know how little this game matters? I live in New Orleans, and won't see it on TV. This is the ultimate "Wait till Next Year game." Florida State - 6 v Miami

I don't think Florida and Kentucky will be decided by more than 7 points. Kentucky, at home +7.

California - 2 v UCLA

Notre Dame at home, + 20 (I can't beleive I'm saying this) v USC.

Ohio State will not beat Michigan State by 17. The score will be over 51.5

Colorado at home + 4.5 v Kansas. There is an oxygen in the air differential.

The true coin flip game of the week? Oklahoma State - 3.5 v KSU

Oregon will defeat Washington by more than 11 points.

The Illini take Michigan at home. Zookies + 3, Under 49

LSU is coming off a brutal fight that they lost in Lexington. Auburn is playing a top five team. The game is in Death Valley. This game looks like I should say "poor, poor Auburn", but then I remember how the SEC works. Auburn +10.5 in a war for the West.
