I love the ORegon State and Az State picks Swerb. How about BC +6.5 at FSU?

I also like...

Cuse +17.5 @ the Dome vs. Louisville
ND -13 over UCLA
South Carolina -3.5 over Vandy
Texas A&M +3.5 @ Oklahoma St
G-Tech +7 @ Clemson

Yargs, I looked hard at that game ... and initially, felt BC plus the chalk was a good play.

However, theres alot of things that scare me about BC this week. QB banged up, FSU backed into a corner in desperation mode at 2-2 in the conference, Weatherford is starting to get in a groove for FSU, and BC coming off a very emotional nationally televised home win vs Va Tech.

In the end, I almost played FSU ... but felt they were too risky to lay 6.5 with.

Like your picks. Notre Dame (winless vs spread this year) and A&M were two games I almost played, and still may.

I'm also going to play...

Miami -17.5 over Duke in spite of the suspensions (when in our lifetime will we see the U favored by less than 3 td's over Dook in football?)

Texas -5 over the Nebraska Cornholers (Colt McCoy coming along very well)

While I'm pissed off and ranting...I hate betting Notre Dame. I hate them so much that seeing them lose is worth losing a small play. However, in typical ND fashion, they will pull out a lucky win and not cover.

Good call Yargs. I hate ND. 5-1 SU, 0-6 ATS.
