I have a pretty good idea why the first two we posted got deleted , therefore I will not make the same statements as before.

GL...


I like Oklahoma State because they are at home and they aren't a shabby team at all. They are sitting at 9-1, have a great offense and defense.

The Bears have a good defense but they haven't an offense like the Cowboys who put up 40 points per game (14th in the Nation). Oklahoma State's defense is pretty solid as well, a top 20 unit and they have faced better a better SOS as well.

Ole Miss at home is going to give the Tigers a heck of a battle. They are riding a 4-game winning streak and have an upset over LSU already. Missouri has been impressive this season but I've been looking at this game all year as a possible upset. Missouri has A&M next week and I think this can be a trap game for the Tigers.

A&M will win this game and it won't be that close. The Tigers just aren't the same powerhouse they have been in previous years under Les Miles. The defense is allowing 23.5ppg, 38th in the Nation. I don't ever remember an LSU defense that bad. They are usually in the top 10-20. Johnny Manziel will have a field day.

Tennessee has lost 3 straight to top 10 teams but they get back on track against the Commodores.

Nebraska


OKAY, I actually laughed out loud to the 40 ppg for the Cowboys because I KNOW you know better. Baylor has the #1 scoring offense (61 ppg) in the Nation

I don't think the Tigers are looking ahead. They have come to realize the SEC is not the big 12 and there is just no breaks in conference. They will be ready and I feel they can win this one.

Even though Johnny Foosball and the A&M offense is great, their Defense is 88th in the Nation. They give up a ton of points as well. LSU can and will score at will against them as well.

The Volunteers might beat UK the last game of the season, but they will not beat Vandy.


Yeah, Baylor has averaged 61ppg but they have played some pretty pathetic defenses. The best defense they have faced all season are Kansas State (ranked 34th) and OU (19th).

They have played some awful defenses like Wofford, UL Monroe (82nd), West Virginia (94th), Iowa State (117th) and Kansas (95th).

Oklahoma State may be the most balanced team they have faced all season. They have the 14th ranked defense and the 14th ranked offense.

And it's on the road. The closest game the Bears have had (a 35-25 over Kansas State) was on the road. Stillwater won't be a welcome environment.

Nebraska has a 34th ranked offense and the defense is ranked 47th.

The Cornhuskers can run the ball, they are averaging 5.2ypc and 240.3ypg, 16th best in the Nation. Minnesota ran for 195 yards in their 24-10 win over PSU. And Ohio State ran for over 400 yards in their 63-14 win. I could go on but won't. They just can't stop the run and this favors Nebraska.

Penn State is below average with the 64th ranked offense and 65th ranked defense. This could get ugly quickly.

Evidently the "apology" was unsatisfactory. I'm shocked, because I thought it totally seemed sincere.

I think that's what they are waiting for.

Bingo.

I'll post it, along with his "apology", on his first TD after the weekend. That way it'll get maximum "views".

Guess so...

35-10, Cowboys. 4th quarter.

November 23, 2013  11:15 PM ET

BTW, WTF happened to Oregon?

November 24, 2013  09:56 AM ET

Why did you forfeit this OTD? You won 3 - 2 on your changes.

 
November 26, 2013  09:17 AM ET

Was duped by ESPN game cast that Vandy failed to convert on 4th and 1 on their final drive. In reality they continued the drive and scored the winning TD. It was too late, I had already forfeited.

I guess that is a lesson, wait until someone other than ESPN gives you the news.
