Only thing I see so far is Houston in the pick 'em over Texas Tech.

I think TCU hangs with Clemson. Maybe buy the hook to +3.

Wisconsin -3
MiamiFla -3
Florida -22
BoiseSt -17

That is all I like... Florida hearing it that they didn't crush Tenn, Boise to light up BG, Badgers only a slight fav at home, and Miami as the team the oddsmakers will not get right a road fav...

Took under 53 tonight. I'm really hoping that flu bug slows down Ole Miss and Garcia goes back to being inconsistent. I think those two scenarios are really likely.

Jesus, this game is painful to watch. And I'm losing. And my TV took a shit. Sweet.

You need to invest in a new TV bro.

Snead sacked again (and fumbles) on 3rd and long. And it's South Carolina's ball inside the 35.

Ugh, I wanted SC but got back to the Hotel room too late... Let's see if my non hindsight picks work out...

Snead really ate the chocolate squirrel last night. I knew they were over-rated at 4, but they should have won easily. Could not move the ball on O, and Snead's passes were mostly awful.

Yep. That said, I'm seeing a trend. Take the under in any South Carolina Thursday night ESPN game.

My first win in 5 games. Feels good, even if I'm only laying $5 a game.

Time for a winning weekend.

That was just one bad football game for 'Ole Miss and Snead but both lost a ton of lustre last night. Snead was mentioned as a potential Browns 1st round pick on those boards and, again just one game, but he showed less than nothing. The game also illustrated the issue with the ranking system IMO.

With where we'll be picking, we have a very good shot at Bradford.

Man, USAF is laying quite a bit of lumber. You guys agree with Pipe that they'll cover?

Nice call on Mizzou, Orenthal.

Kansas -12.5 and CMU -16 so far.

4-1 last week, and 4-1 this week. Last week had that 2 team NFL parlay hit. :thumb up:

Prior years I'd be just about done at this point. Think it has to do with not being too scientific with the picks and going more on gut feelings and first blush... Then again its prolly just a burst of luck, either way lets keep it going!

5-4, which is better than my 2-5-1 last week. Had a very poor number on Houston.

Houston was a pick 'em in my book all week long.
