For some reason, the VT-Pitt game is blacked out where I live. What's the deal with Pitt putting up 21 unanswered points on the hokies?

Sorry to say I was definitely wrong about Penn State, but it's nice to see them get back to winning. There's a lot of good kids on that team who didn't deserve all this.

At 10 right so far, may improve by one. The reverse plus strategy is at least as effective as the reverse strategy.

So, reverse Plus gets me 10 right. 4 for 6 in the Plus. Is this an endorsement of the reversePlus(TM) strategy or just more of throwing darts at a board?

We had 2 pushes, so you did all right this week. I should have just used a coin this time, though...

Other than Jurgen's "sure things" (maximum 6) coin toss it will be.

Heads for left column, tails for right column.

The coin toss method was used--- no where near a 50/50 break heads/tails.

Jurgen picked:

Oklahoma/Kansas State

LSU/Auburn

SouthCarolina/Missouri

Tulsa/Fresno State

I may re-do this at home using my fancy silver dollar rather than a sticky penny.

I used the same method s last week, since it seemed to work about 50% better than first attempt. Maybe just maybe. busy weekend, have yourselves some awesome banter.

I was kidding about really using a coin toss.

The guys that choose the line in Vegas know what they're doing. Picking against it will probably never be much better than a 50-50 proposition in the long run....no matter how much effort you put into it.

I'll continue to pick from the gut with an occasional bias....It is highly unlikely that I will ever pick against the Gators, and I assume that SEC teams are naturally better than others due to being tempered in the fire of competition of course.

....ignore Ole Miss and UK results of course

Next year, I'm doing two accounts, and one is going to be a strictly coin toss account. It'd be interesting to see how many people beat the coin.
