I'll have more on the main games in a day or two. Lead likes Boise State on the 23rd, -10 against the Pirates of East Carolina.

Yeah. Wtf. Cherry picking bastard. Who picks just games with a perceived edge?

Get 'em all in there sir.

I'm tellin ya fellas, the lines on the games look pretty solid. The only other one Lead sees early that seems to be off is Oklahoma State. How bout them Cowboys. Lead likes em over the Hoosiers.

So there is your early answer, Boise State and OK State. If the Lead Man shakes out anything as time goes on he'll let you know.

Currently waiting to see if the Georgia Hawaii game gets under 7.

Lead,

The emotional factor for the Indiana game has me a little worried, their fallen coach's goal about the bowl game, his wife is gonna be there?

I know ... I'm thinking the same thing Nicastro. Those kids have been on a mission this season, and the new coach has done a good job.

But I like Ok St in the game. They've been to a bowl 5 of the last 6 seasons, played a really tough schedule (unlike IU), need a win for a winning season, and are the better football team. Also, the line is likely a couple points lower cause of the Hoeppner Factor.

Also like ...

Wake
Miss St
Fresno
Clemson
Missouri
Georgia

I was thinking over in that game (IU/OSU)

I'm liking:

Fla Atlantic
Cinncy
Air Force
Clem Aub Under


Thant Miss St. game Scares me, I think they are better, but UCF is good against the spread, and that running back is on a mission.
