Football Predictions - No Guts, No Glory

OK, so back to 4-2 straight up and 3-3 against the spread last week. My upset special did not happen, and Georgia let me down (not really, I just picked them to allow my mojo to help them lose). And Tech didn't beat the spread, being lucky to get out with a win. That was then, this is now.

This week's "no guts, no glory" upset prediction is South Carolina over Alabama. Sure, it isn't likely to happen. Probably no one will beat Alabama this season. But if ever there was a chance, I think it is this weekend. SC 21, Bammer 20

Everything else:

Clemson(+2.5) 24, UNC 21 - another upset pick, probably more likely than Bama losing

Virginny(+8) 17, GT 28 - love that koolaid, plus it is Homecoming and we are due to lay the hammer down on someone.

Tennessee(+8.5) 20, UGA 24 - Tempting to pick UT for the upset, but Georgia has their back against the wall and is playing at home. Plus, I hope my bad mojo has its usual effect.

Florida State(+7) 14, MIAMI 28 - Sure, I want FSU to win, but I will be shocked if I am wrong with this pick.

Southern Cal(+7) 10, STANFORD 28 - Go Trees!

Be a real fan... pick all of the top 25! :P

But on the bright side... at least your Braves put on a good show last night.

Jeni - I'm not doing too bad today. My South Carolina pick is looking real smart now!

LL - Since we aren't in the top 25 anymore, I want them all to lose! I didn't stay up late enough to see the good part of the Braves game. :-( I hit the sack not long after Bobby got ejected.

Holy pick-em Dano!!!

Bama goes down... FSU wins big... Stanford wins at the buzzer...

You're on a roll!

Wow on the SC pick!

LL - I am happy that FSU gave Miami a conference loss (UM is in our division so that helps us), but I actually picked Miami. I ended up 4-2, but only 2-4 against the spread.

Dave - yeah, I had one of those hunches and this time it worked out. There were only about 5-6 people on the message board who got that one right.
