Football Picks

6-0 last week (yay? Wish UT woulda beat Bama so I'd be 5-1 heh) so 50-19 (72.5% still bad but improving)

UMass is at Vandy: Vandy gets one step closer to a 2nd straight bowl game this week; The Dores open up everything they have and crush UMass by 22

Kentucky is at Missouri: Both teams stunk it up last (but Ky did play a close game against a real good Georgia team) and Mizzou is without it's top threat. I can't believe I'm writing this, but KY in the upset by 1

Ole Miss is at Arkansas: If this game was at home, Mississippi would be an easy pick, but it's not and Arkansas seems to be playing good football lately. Homefield and some breaks give this one to Ark by 5

Texas A&M is at Auburn: Can AU stop the slide? Will Chizik be there next week? I've been burned a couple times (both ways, natch) picking AU so I'll just go safe and take A&M and their offense this week. TA&M by 10

Tennessee at South Carolina: This game may decide Dooley's career (or lack of) at UT. The head ball coach has said that Shaw will play 'no matter what' unless he gets hurt. I like the UT offense against the battered SC defense, but the game will come down to UT's defense ability (or lack) to stop SC any. With Shaw not looking over his shoulder, his confidence should be sky high.

I think UT's players will rally around the coach and make life miserable for SC: UT in an upset by 3

Mississippi St at Alabama: GOY? The bulldogs are 7-0 for the first time since 1898 (kidding) and on a roll heading into #1 Alabama. They will play a spirited and emotional game, for about 3 quarters. Unfortunately Alabama will play all 4 quarters: Bama by 13

Florida vs Georgia at 'The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party'* for basically the east crown (for UF, UGA needs more if they win) and a cemented slot as the #2 team in the nation behind bama (gators).  Georgia needed help to beat Kentucky last week while Florida destroyed SC: Florida takes it and cruises to the SEC title game against Bama by 12

Good to see a pic of them and not some great hairy footballers. :)


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