Except that I don't really like all of those lines except the South Carolina one. I think they'll come out ready to play, but all those other games are huge question marks.

I like So Car tonight too. One of my sleepers this season. Ended the season horribly last season. Feel the Cocks will be ready to roll tonight, win by 3 TDs.

You a fan of anyone else tonight?

The only other game I would consider is U-M (OH) and Vandy on the under. Maybe Troy over MTSU. I wish I could parlay it with an NFL game, but talk about uncertainty.

I've got to take a closer look at the slate still. But my gut is just one small play on the Cocks.

I always get too greedy and try to bet too many things, then wind up losing my parlay by a couple points (or a half point with basketball).

Another intriguing matchup for me is that Stanford has a new defensive coordinator expected to put in a heavy blitz package and Oregon St. has a sophomore at C and a redshirt freshman at RT.

What's the total pts for the Carolina game tonight?

I usually never bet the points on a college game, but that defense is stout and I don't think Spurrier will give us everything on offense. Could be lower scoring than folks think.
