Football Picks

Went 8-2 last week for a season of 33-12 (73.3% still awful) because Arkansas still sucks and I thought Missouri was a baller ... sigh.

Tennessee moved a little in the polls again: ESPN Power #28 (NR), AP #38(35), Coaches #39(40).
On to the picks (not many games this week):

Arkansas is at Texas A&M: Arky is on suicide watch and A&M is rolling; A&M by 14
Missouri travels to UCF and hopes to get back on track against non-SEC comp.: UCF stuns Mizzou by 3
South Carolina travels to Kentucky: Kentucky is thinking basketball, SC by 20
Towson at LSU: cupcake city, LSU by 50
Ole Miss is on fire heading to Alabama: Ala will put that fire out, emphatically: Bama by 30
Hope I'm wrong
Tennessee heads to Georgia: Tennessee will play much better than they did against Florida and this game will be high-scoring and close, but I think Georgia has a little too much for us :(  Georgia by 4

Football Picks

9-3 last week for a season total of 25-10 (71.4%) As Auburn got its first win, Kentucky got beat on a 2-point conversion and Tennessee imploded.

New week, new picks heh

Missouri at South Carolina: Upset, Missou by 6
FAU at Alabama: Ala 3rd string by 14, whole team by 48

Rutgers at Arkansas: Closer than it should be, Ark by 3

No cheerleader this week, but them's the breaks.

Football Picks

Last week was awful... for me and Arkansas :(   Went 6-5 for a total of 16-7 [69.6%] and that's horrific..

New week, new pics and hopefully a new streak. Tennessee improved ranking-wise: ESPN Power #22(was #23), AP #23 (27) and stay #29 on coach's poll (others receiving votes):

LA Monroe off the major upset of Arkansas travels to Auburn to play the worst team in the SEC. AU's defense can't stop anyone and their offense plays defense (heh)...  LA Monroe makes it 2 in a row over the mighty SEC. ULM 28 - AU 21

Presbyterian plays at Vandy; Vandy is 0-2 and needed that win last week at Northwestern... they get off the snide this week big.  Vandy 42 - Pres 30

Texas A&M plays at SMU: A&M is going to be a good addition to the SEC if they find out we play 4 quarters in a game (see lost leads), luckily SMU isn't an SEC school.  A&M 38 - SMU 17

Alabama at Arkansas: This was a circled game for Arkansas at the beginning; now, not so much. After Wilson getting hurt (he's supposed to play) and losing at home to UL Monroe, this will get ugly in a hurry.  Ark will score on the Bama defense, but it will be late. Ala 35 - Ark 20

UAB at South Carolina... SC 45 - UAB 7 (no matter who's the QB for SC)

Arizona State at Missouri: Mizzou looked good against Georgia last week until the final few minutes, ASU looked great last week, but this is at Mizzou.  Mizzou 43 - ASU 37

Mississippi St at Troy ... MSU 50 - Troy 19 (MSU will be 3-0 oooh)

W Kentucky at Kentucky; Two straight matches against SEC foes for WKU; this one won't be the laugher that the Ala game was, but it won't be close either.  KU 39 - WKU 20

Florida Atlantic at Georgia... Geo 41 - FAU 13

Idaho at LSU (really, Idaho??)  LSU 62 - Vandals 3

Texas at Ole Miss; Ole Miss is 2-0 for the first time in forever, they won't make 3-0; Texas 31 - Ole Miss 10

Game of the week: Florida at Tennessee; UF has a 7 game streak against the Vols, but UT is coming in on fire on both sides of the ball, while UF has some injuries and played not so well in the 1st half of the A&M win.  Tennessee finally breaks the streak in a big way: UT 31 - UF 18

Football Picks

Ok so I totally forgot about Kentucky last week (sorry EMB) but I would have picked against them anyway :)  But I can't count that so I went 10-1 (Auburn can't stop the run, repeat that phrase, ack)
Uhh yeah, i got nothing

Tennessee has moved up in the rankings:

ESPN Power #23 (prev. #30), AP #27(33) and Coach's #29(43)

Easy games first: Tennessee over Georgia State (big), Alabama over W. Kentucky (very big), LSU over Washington (big), Arkansas over LA Monroe (err you get the idea)

A little tougher to call games: Ole Miss squeezes by UTEP (who played Oklahoma close), South Carolina holds on over East Carolina (Conor Shaw goes out of the game at least twice), Vandy holds off a game Northwestern squad (on the road too!) and Kentucky outlast Kent State (this could go either way heh)

Too close to call (coin-flip division): Texas A&M over Florida; Missouri over Georgia

Who the hell knows? game: Auburn versus Mississippi State... (Auburn can't stop the run; Mississippi State runs the ball, very well)

Auburn pulls off the upset!


 Recently played a few games on Caldera (warzone) and then... Lots of luck in this one, but satisfying
