I got one lousy game right last week (thank you Stanford). Can't get much worse, so maybe things will be better this time around.
Upset specials: once again, my very own Yellow Jackets are underdogs at home against ThugU. We owe them one, and payback is a bitch. Jackets pull off the "upset" in a battle of the untested QBs. Not sure why South Carolina is an underdog against an awful Florida team, but I think Spurrier has this one covered.
Here's the week's predictions (underdogs first with pt spread, and home team is in CAPS).
GT(+4) 28, Miami 24 - Tevin Washington gets it done. GO JACKETS!!! Plus we honor the 1990 National Champion team (the only one that was UNDEFEATED and didn't need a 5th down to win a game)
South Carolina(+7) 24, FLORIDA 21 - not sure it will even be this close, but whatever.
NORTH CAROLINA(+3.5) 17, Virginia Tech 31 - NC has let me down for the last time. Think you can win? Prove it. Then I might pick ya next week.
TEXAS(+6.5) 21, Okla State 35 - don't really care, but had to pick something
Georgia(+8.5) 21, AUBURN 24 - Hate Georgia, and Auburn has had a week of distractions, but I still don't see the upset happening unless something really weird occurs. Hope I'm right!!!
ND(+4) 10, Utah 21 - don't like ND, and don't think they are very good this year.
