I'll be picking UF and USCw this week no matter the spread...that's why I'm not doing to well in my picks.

Like I wrote before, I just go with gut feel most times. I may make a few changes on Saturday morning if my gut changes.

Shoot, I don't pay attention to records or where the game is being played. I look at teams and spreads, and that's it.

I'm not interested enough to look at my picks but I bet I give the home team the nod esp when only a few points are involved either way.

8 points? Are you kidding me FSU?

Here's a joke: You know why Florida State replaced the turf with cardboard at Doak Campbell?


They always look better on paper.

IF Florida loses this game, it sure as hell isn't going to be by no 8 points.

Go to hell FSU.

Ahhh, remember when with teams like BC, Miami and Florida State the ACC with the Big 10 were THE dominant football conferences?

I bet you didn't catch FSU fans cheering for Miami in the Orange Bowl.

He's talking about when the Gators used to pee themselves a little when they knew a Hurricane was coming to town. Now they get out the party favors a week in advance.

Damn, this week is really tough. Maybe I need to pull out the coin. I think I'm over thinking it as I have the narrowist of leads. The pressure is on.

Wait, FAU and NMSU are in the pick 'em? And, on the same week? This is a sure sign of the Apocalypse.

Well played, Mayans. Well played.
