Quackers - pretty certain
'Noles - pretty certain again
Gators - NFC, tossed coin
USC(e) - still NFC, tossed coin again
K-State - in spite of Kansas' schematic advantage
'Horns - fingers, toes and eyes all crossed
Domers - but Miami has been Jekyll/Hyde; so...??
tOSU - prob'ly, but nowhere near certain
USC(w) - still not taking Utes seriously
Beavers - I'm done disrespecting them
Hornytoads - life gonna get tough for I-State
GT - last week was an aberration, I think
Zero U - not close, not close at all
Stanford - they've had their "oops" week
Moo State - KY can't wait for CBB season to start
Rutgers - they seem pretty decent by Big East standards
Northwestern - PSU too decimated
Cal - damn, had to toss the coin a 3rd time

Provo Polygamists
Central Michigan

TSUN
Aubie - Arky has thrown in the towel

Note - "NFC" is a construction acronym. All construction acronyms contain at least one "F"; the other letters in this one are "No Clue".

Trying something totally new and revolutionary! In the past, when in doubt, I went with my gut instinct. That hasn't worked out so well, specially now that we're in the conference part of the schedule, with teams who match up, and the pastry section looks pretty much like a donut counter at 12:00 on Sunday, all the good stuff is gone and there are few cupcakes left.

So, I am now going with the Vegas line if I don't have a real feel for the game. Might not work real well cuz most of them I used the line on were like -2 1/2.

Or the team that the 1st letter of their 1st name starts 1st in the alphabet...

I notice almost everbody pickin WVU, and that's cool with their video game numbers and stats 'n stuff.

But I look at their schedule and see nuthin, this is the 1st B12 game they go west for, and the LOWEST their D has held anybody was 21, and that was Maryland. Oh yeah, they haven't faced a team with a D lineman named Jeffcoat either, and that Baylor team that hung 63 on them DIDN'T have RGIII at QB.

NBD, it just really stuck out to me...

On second perusal, the picks are kinda split and (more or less) go on a east/west basis; east => WVU, West => UT...

Were you the one that last week said that to us when we picked tOSU too?

I'm mildly surprised that tOSU is a near-unanimous pick so far. I'd put my level of certainty on that game at no more than 60%. Corn Aggy's been kinda streaky, maybe they'll have a "good Pelini" day...... or maybe not.
