Football Picks of the Week

5-0 in the SEC last week (18-5, 78.3%) and 2-2 in T25/US (8-8, 50%)


Tennessee starts another new QB (freshman this week) against #13 South Carolina. SC has lost it's #1 running back for the year and kicked off the starting QB; however, their defense is super against the pass. Doesn't look good for UT, but I'm going to say that home field and a non-Sims start prove the difference in the upset. UT 21 - SC 18

#10 Arkansas at Vandy: Vandy is playing extremely well; but that won't help them win this game, although it should be close. Ark 28 - Vandy 21

Bleacher Report
#22 Georgia vs Florida in the World's Largest Cocktail Party: Georgia is on a roll, Florida is in flames (although they do get their starting QB back); I think in this game it will be too much UGA and no running game for the Gators. UGA 31 - FL 20

Ole Miss visits #23 (really?) Auburn: Both teams are sucking up the atmosphere; Auburn was good at some point however and that's enough. AU 20 - Ole Miss 7

Miss State at Kentucky: Can they both lose? MS 12 - Ky 6


#6 Stanford rolls at USC,
#9 Oklahoma rebounds at #8 Kansas State,
#7 Oregon beats Wash St by at least 35

U/S #14 Nebraska beats #11 Michigan State

Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry unveiled a sweeping economic agenda Monday highlighted by a plan to level a voluntary 20 percent “flat tax” on all taxpayers who will accept it in place of what they’re paying now. (link)

Until I can read the proposal myself, I can't comment to much on it, but it sounds like a turn in the right direction at least.

And we have Herman to thank for finally getting the R's to start thinking of doing away with the tax system we now have.

Football Picks of the Week

Chasing the Gold
4-1 in the SEC last week (13-5 72.2%) and 3-1 on T25/US (6-6 50%)


Tennessee is at #2 Alabama: same as last week, we gotta rely on Simms at QB and they have a great defense and offense. I think the game will stay close until the 4th but Bama wins 31 - 17

#20 Auburn is at #1 LSU: LSU is without its best defender and running back; but should still have enough defense to stop AU's backup QB; LSU 21 - AU 10

Kentucky gets Jacksonville State at home: Kentucky is pretty much one of the worst teams in college; but they should take this game; KY 20 - JSU 19

#9 Arkansas travels to Ole Miss: Ole Miss had 184 yards of offense against Bama; expect that to go up against a weaker Hogs squad, but look for Arkansas to unleash firepower on Ole Miss; Ark 44 - Ole Miss 30

Army travels to Vanderbilt: Normally an Army pick here would be safe, but Vandy is playing great D and found some of an offense last week so... Vandy 24 - Army 13


#3 Oklahoma holds off offense-minded Texas Tech
#8 Stanford pounds #25 Washington (at Stanford)
#22 Georgia Tech bounces back against woeful (this year) Miami

U/S #16 Michigan State stops #6 Wisconsin cold

Earlier I spoke about Cain's 9-9-9 plan and how I liked the idea (since their is no fully fleshed out plan yet, can't comment on it exactly; but at least he's looking to do something). Now Rick Perry (my 1st choice since Sarah isn't running) has come out with his Energy plan and it's quite possibly what he needs to get back to front-runner status.
Rick Perry
Energy powers the economy. Nations that can produce energy possess real wealth, if they can exploit it. Getting the US back into energy production in a serious way would probably have similarly broad effects to your getting the stable and well-paying job. Our downgraded credit gets upgraded again because we’re making rational choices about the lifeblood of the economy again. Obama’s push to a green economy was not rational; that technology isn’t ready to power an economy of our size yet and won’t be for a long time. So we become rational economic actors again by unleashing our energy sector. Increased supply pushes energy prices down, which helps every family and business in the country, which broadens the tax base, which helps alleviate the deficit (if spending is brought back into sane levels). Energy producers like Venezuela and Russia have to respond to the new American competition with expanded production, or price cuts, or both. So energy prices get more downward pressure. America’s stepped up production helps bring market forces to bear on the global economy in a good way.(link)
Read it all. The Tatler has a great take on it. It's the kind of plan that could coalesce a campaign and make a President. Tags: ,

Football Picks for the Week

5-1 in the SEC last week (9-4 69.2%) and 3-1 on T25/US (3-5 37.5%) ack, on to the pics


#1 LSU at Tennessee: We've lost our QB, best WR and best RB (although the run game sucked anyway). Our defense is still good, but not good enough to beat the Tigers without a lot of help :(  LSU 25 - UT 11

#15 South Carolina at Mississippi St: All the 'experts' are picking State to take this one at home; I see no reason to believe in a 'resurgence' at State after watching them play and SC is fired up; SC 31 - MSU 20

#2 Alabama at Ole Miss: Ouch, really nothing to say here; Bama 41 - Ole Miss 7

Florida at #24 Auburn: Auburn is reeling after giving up against Arkansas, Florida is beat up after two straight hard losses; Florida (behind a 2 qb system) will rebound and send AU out of the T25  FL 20 - AU 14

Georgia at Vanderbilt: Three weeks ago this looked close; not anymore; Georgia 38 - Vandy 14

From the Bleacher Report
T25 picks

#6 Ok State rolls #22 Texas;
#9 Oregon beats #18 Arizona State
#12 Georgia Tech remains unbeaten against lowly Virgina

Upset special (US)
#23 Michigan State stops #11 Michigan and Robinson and ends the big blue's unbeaten season (re-instituted my original pic because 'we' don't use betting lines in college per my 'boss')
