Boise State has now screwed me two weeks in a row.

Never again.

For three quarters...I was pretty happy, then I started to get nervous. Just glad they decided to run out the clock instead of the ball.

Pitiful again...next week I am going to pick how I think it is going to turn out, and then reverse all my picks. That way I will be with Scarlet.

In 7 of the picks I got wrong I picked the right team (favorite) but they didn't cover the spread.

Nothing worse than seeing your pick being well up at the end of the game, but a few points below the spread...and then they do the "classy" thing and don't try to force a score.


Hell this picking against the spread is pretty much guessing as far as I can tell. It's just for fun though and a coin flip wouldn't provide any fun at all.

Thanks, but remember, as a Georgia graduate you are expected to bask in the reflective glow of success of a fellow SECer

Regression to the mean expected before too long....it's just guessing, not random, but still guessing

It really is interesting how close the book makers are on most of the games though. When they get it to .5 point...that is just incredible.

Yep, biggest game of the week and those who picked the underdog look like geniuses because of that half point
