Oh they're amazing. It's really tough picking against the spread because it's so close to the outcome so often.

Picks are up.....but there seems to be a mistake. Florida is favored over Tennessee by 17. I think that's supposed to be the over/under.......

Yeah that was the first one I saw and thought "no way they cover that spread". Who knows though. UF had an extra week to prepare, home field. I wonder how Tenn will respond after getting boat-raced in Oregon.

I think Tennessee could have a shot. In Oregon, it was a mediocre team playing a good team three time zones from home. I wasn't at all surprised that they got bounced. But, familiar turf, Florida's super crappy offense - could be good news for Tennessee.

Then again, maybe not. But, one of UT's defensive guys is in one if my classes, and he doesn't even bother to bring a notebook and writing implement to class, so I assume he must be focusing his efforts elsewhere.

First game is in half an hour. Get your picks in if you haven't!

We had a couple that didn't get their picks in for tonight's game, but... I noticed NativeSon did.

Son, where you at?

Eight games were in the bag-- Jurgen was bringing up the rear in the rankings for this week. Jurgen has been doing piss poor in his prognostication. So, I changed them all except USU vs USC.

Changing them all made me lose AFA vs Wyo- I expected that outcome, but if I kept it I would have kept my Utah vs BYU pick which I ended up winning.

Next week's strategy. Make picks and then flip them.

Games for week 5 already posted, but no point spreads yet. And, gosh, there are a lot of teams this week that I am actually familiar with, although that might not help a lot!

My completely random- wish I could explain it away by being drunk- picks are now up.

Lock of the week UNM over UNLV.

I may have to pull a double reverse Linzi and change up all of my picks.

Or I may have to go to the coin. You know you fear the coin.

I went ahead and got my picks in too. To be revised I'm sure.
