this past weekends games proved there might be a few maybes or might be’s coming up in the second half of the season. for me, the most obvious being the oregon ducks are much more powerful than i first thought. and coach kelly is a better coach than i thought as well. or so it would seem, this despite the fact looks can be deceiving concerning kelly and his dumb ass visor. yes, a small matter. next we have jake locker and the huskies. someone must have finally reminded jake that he is or was a heisman candidate. was is probably more like it but none the less it’s good to see the kid finally living up to the hype. in the spirit of my old days, it’s time for a run on paragraph. the huskies certainly have the trojan’s number as well and will probably continue to ring their bell in the foreseeable future. stanford on the other hand ran up against a brick wall of duck feathers and missed their chance at a shot at the pac 10 title. oregon st might not be as good as i thought. however, i’m still more or less thinking the pac 10 title will be decided with the “civil war” game against the ducks on december 4th. stanford and the huskies possibly playing spoiler for either team.
all that being said, i’m here a bit early this week due to my semi annual trip up into the central valley and the heart of darkness. with it being early all the odds aren’t in yet for the coming week. no matter, as what i do have here will determine, as always, my wins and losses for all the games this week.
as for last week i went a semi miserable 5 for 10 making my over all stats a similarly miserable 26 for 50. still above 50% but floundering a bit due to some of my picks not being able to grasp the concept of covering the point spread. what’s up with that? also, remember this is for fun only and using any of the drivel dished out here for monetary gain would be stupid and moronic on your part.
rock ‘n’ roll.
10/7 nebraska at kansas st. nebraska favored by 12 points. a good one to kick off the weekend. nebraska should win but take kansas st to cover the spread. that’s probably a dumb move but i’m going to stick with it.
10/9 alabama at s. carolina. alabama favored by 7.5 points. not an easy road game to be sure for bama. however, take the tide to win and cover.
10/9 lsu at florida. florida favored by 7.5 points. speaking of floundering, you need to take the gators to win and cover after lsu’s last game.
10/9 oregon st at arizona. oregon st favored by 8.5 points. the beavs need to play much better than they did last week. hopefully, they will. take them to win and cover.
10/9 ucla at california. cal favored by 8 points. time for the bruins and some of their texas mojo to surface again. take the bruins to cover the spread or win.
10/9 michigan st at michigan. michigan favored by 4.5 points. michigan covers and wins.
10/9 utah at iowa st. utah favored by 7 points. this might be a really good game, kids. take utah to win and cover.
10/9 usc at stanford. stanford favored by 8. that is interesting. i’m wondering just how long it’s been since the trojans have not been favored to win a game? time for the trees and a statement. take stanford to win but usc covers the spread. in other words i’m taking the trojans.
10/9 toledo at boise st. boise st favored by 39.5 points. the smurf turf team steamrollers onward. apparently toledo has won some games so far this year. against whom i haven’t a clue. no one anybody has heard of i’m sure. the spread is a boat load of points. take toledo to get thumped but they will cover the spread. hopefully.
10/9 san jose st at nevada. nevada favored by 38.5 points. another boat load of points. southern idaho and northern nevada inundated by points this week. the wolf pack are seemingly the only team left to stop the smurf turf juggernaut this season. time tells and i’m getting ahead of myself and the season. take nevada to win and cover.
there ya go. another fine week of picks. just remember to leave your wallet where it belongs and nobody gets hurt. i may or may not be here with my week 7 picks as i’ll still be on the road looking for colonel kurtz. however, if i am here it will be very special indeed. check back to see what happens. thanks for reading.
