Down, down, down… the average keeps going down. Why is it that when you make a 100 on a test it only takes your overall average up a few points, but if you make a 50 it takes it down 15 points. I never understood that about math. Stupid math. Oh well, I bet I still have a better average than Tim Brando. I’ll be his fly in the ointment…
Last Week: 4-2
This Week: 8-1
Overall: 63-16 (79.7%)
Vanderbilt at Florida – Even though Vandy looked pretty good against Arkansas last week, they still ended up pulling a “Vandy” and losing in the end. Those that like to gain attention by saying outlandish things will pick Vanderbilt to win this weekend. No way. Florida may not be Florida this year, but Vandy is still Vandy.
Florida 24, Vanderbilt 13
Florida 26, Vanderbilt 21 – SUCCESS!
New Mexico State at Georgia – You have to hand it to Mark Richt for being the strict disciplinarian and waiting until after the Florida game to suspend his starting running back and two others even though he knew they had failed drug tests prior to the game against the Gators. That’ll teach em, Richt. Let them play the big games, but sit them in the games that don’t matter. Top notch.
Georgia 38, New Mexico State 7
Georgia 63, New Mexico State 16 – SUCCESS!
Ole Miss at Kentucky – Can we just dub this game a “loser leaves town” match? I say the losing school send their coach packing as soon as the game is over and then the winning coach still gets axed at the end of the season. But wait, that would actually help the losing team, wouldn’t it? Oh well, I’ve already spent too much time talking about a game of this ineptitude.
Ole Miss really probably is a tad better than their record, so they’ll win.
Ole Miss 24, Kentucky 20
Kentucky 30, Ole Miss 13 – FAILURE
Middle Tennessee State at Tennessee – How dare Tennessee think they can take up the whole state name when there are other directional schools inside of it? The Blue Raiders will exact revenge on this travesty until the talent level starts to show and the Vols win in the 4th.
Tennessee 27, Middle Tennessee State 21
Tennessee 24, Middle Tennessee State 0 – SUCCESS!
South Carolina at Arkansas – Who knew that there was another top-10 match-up going on in the SEC this week. With all the buzz surrounding the SUPER BOWL TO END ALL WORLD HUNGER, it’s been easy to forget about this game. Well, it’s either that or it’s the fact that neither of these teams probably deserve to be in the top-10 right now.
Arkansas has struggled recently, but not as bad as South Carolina. The Gamecocks finally lose another game, and it won’t even be close.
Arkansas 31, South Carolina 10
Arkansas 44, South Carolina 28 – SUCCESS!
UT-Martin at Mississippi State – Are they still playing football in Starkville?
Mississippi State 34, UT-Martin 14
Mississippi State 55, UT-Martin 17 – SUCCESS!
LSU at Alabama – IT’S WHAT YOU’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR!!!! THE SUPER BOWL TO END ALL WORLD HUNGER!!!! THE END IS NIGH!!!!! SAVE YOURSELF!!!!!
LSU 27, Alabama 23
LSU 9, Alabama 6 (OT) – SUCCESS!
Other Games of Note
Texas A&M at Oklahoma – The Aggies will surge to a 17-point halftime lead, and then, as they’ve done all season, actually leave the stadium before the 2nd half starts. Apparently, football in College Station only lasts one half. At least that’s how the Aggies play.
Oklahoma 34, Texas A&M 17
Oklahoma 41, Texas A&M 25 – SUCCESS!
Kansas State at Oklahoma State – I think we all knew that Kansas State wasn’t really a contender this year. It showed last week. It will show even more this week. The possible BCS National Champioship Game-bound Cowboys will blister, and I do mean blister the Wildcats.
Oklahoma State 56, Kansas State 20
Oklahoma State 52, Kansas State 45 – SUCCESS!
Oregon at Washington – Do I really think this will happen? Nah, but it would be really cool if it did, right?
Washington 41, Oregon 38
Washington 34, Oregon 17 – FAILURE
