first off, why is it big time schools feel the need to waste the first week or two of the season playing small time schools? small time schools with small time football programs that will never be big time in either regard. just a thought.
I’m writing this a bit early so all of the results are not in as yet. if i get the last two games right i’ll be at 50%. not good considering i didn’t even use the spreads. any the ways, one bright light was the duck’s game. just like i told you, spread or no spread, that was the game to spend your rent money on. another would be jeremiah masoli got a reprieve from the ncaa and gets to play for ole miss. though it didn’t do them or me any good on saturday.
i’m using the point spreads this week. i may as well considering how badly i did laast week. it couldn’t get much worse. or could it?
remember this is for fun and using anything i say here and taking it to vegas or your local tony soprano would be totally stupid, and in the last instance, illegal. what is here is here. if the points change during the week i don’t care, i go by what i have here and now.
rock ‘n’ roll.
9/11 georgia at s. carolina. s. carolina favored by 2.5 points. this one is simple. georgia ran all over a school i never heard of before. s. carolina beat a school who on occasion can be a spoiler. take s. carolina to win.
9/11 colorado at california. cal favored by 8 points. cal comes off a win against a glorified high school team. colorado beat a semi sorta at times decent colorado st. the only reason i’m taking cal and coach tedford here is that it’s a home game for them. cal wins.
9/11 florida st at oklahoma. oklahoma favored by 8.5 points. sec vs big 12. the sooners need this one. home game. take the sooners.
9/11 michigan at notre dame. notre dame favored by 4.5 points. i wasn’t too impressed with either schools play last week. one of those must wins for big blue. take michigan to win.
9/11 miami fl at ohio st. ohio st favored by 10 points. the first big test for the buckeyes and a game to watch. take ohio st to win.
9/11 utah at unlv. utah favored by 22.5 points. utah in a needs to win mode in order to maintain momentum and a shot at a good BCS spot. unlv ain’t that shabby. good game. might be too many points. however, take utah to win.
9/11 oregon at tennessee. oregon favored by 13.5 points. both schools ran over a couple of junior high school teams last week. the first real test of the season for both of them. i think it will be close and the ducks should win. take them. QUACK QUACK.
9/11 penn st at alabama. alabama favored by 11.5 points. both schools impressive with wins last week against so so programs. home game and the tide should roll against joe pa and his boys. take bama to win.
9/11 stanford at ucla. stanford favored by 7 points. stanford easily beat one of the junior high school teams everyone seems to play the first week or two of the season. the bruins came close to beating kansas st but made a few too many mistakes. take stanford to win.
9/11 virginia at usc. usc favored by 18 points. virginia not that impressive against “one of those schools”. usc’s defense missed the plane ride to hawaii or if they did catch the plane, stayed at the hotel to play in the pool with the oiled up japanese tourista babes. not a bad idea on it’s face. but, hey, it’s football season, kids. and time to stop screwing around. hopefully, the new guys get it together and the defense shows up this week. another one of the games where it might be too many points. regardless, take the trojans to win.
another early week for me. stuff happening and monkey wrenches already being tossed into the works. i won’t be here for the next few weeks.
a road trip is on the books. just remember to keep it fun and keep your money in your wallets where it belongs. enjoy the games.
