Football Picks

7-1 last week (almost got the LSU upset of Bama, but great last drive by the Tide) for a season total of 60-24(71.4%). New week and new picks (heh)

Florida 'battles' UL Lafayette at the Swamp: Scrimmage time before watching to see if Auburn can upset Georgia. FL by 35

Missouri is at Tennessee: Both have to win to go to a bowl. Missouri's offense is banged up, but UT's defense plays like an anti-offense; should be a high scoring affair and I like UT's chances at home with Brey on fire. UT by 10

Mississippi State is at LSU: MSU started 7-0 (should have lost to UT grumble) and everyone was jumping on the bandwagon, after getting pounded for two straight weeks, the bulldogs are looking for a doctor. LSU will be MAD after letting Alabama escape them last week. With MSU's defense looking sub-par and LSU finding an offense, things won't go well. LSU by 15

Vanderbilt at Ole Miss: Both teams need this, but both can lose and still go bowling (it would be the first time in school history for Vandy to go to back-to-back bowls). Ole Miss deflated last week against Georgia and Vandy got Joker Phillips fired from Kentucky. Vandy is playing better, but this game is at Ole Miss, edge. Miss by 3

Arkansas at South Carolina: Ark can still get to a bowl after their abysmal start; SC is trying to make a BCS bowl. SC has way too much for the razorbacks to handle, SC by 7

Georgia at Auburn: AU playing for pride, Georgia for a trip to the SEC title game (against Bama 99%); AU put together a great 2nd half last week (against New Mexico St natch) and so did Georgia. Pride loses to SEC title game, UGA by 18

Texas A&M at Alabama: Bama's defense showed that they have holes, lots of holes. Johnny football and the Aggies have offensive firepower in spades. Can A&M stop the Tide's offense, can they score when in the redzone (LSU couldn't). I think they can (some) but not enough. Bama by 3

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