Rallied for a 5-2 week after the USF ass kicking at Heinz Field on Thursday night. Baylor lost straight up, of course, so the 5 wins is a bit misleading. I stand at 23-11-1 (3-2 in money games) overall.
This week, hmmm little iffy (have said that since week 3). Here is what I got. No underdogs this week. And by no I mean none. At all. Risky.

are taking the Broncos
*W 57-7. One of the touchdowns was decribed as if "Boise State was running against air during walk through."
Money Game: 5Boise State (-21) at Fresno State 9:00 ESPN Friday
93% of America is taking Boise. Sounds good to me. From VegasInsider.com

Thursday night at the Autzen Zoo
Cal at 9Oregon (-24.5) 9:00 ESPN Thursday
Huge spread. Should be covered by halftime. Plus, Oregon has Puddles and the only thing that makes me nervous is when Oregon will be up by a ton in the 2nd half, will they hold on to win by more than 24? I hate when the game is already over but a late FG makes the losing team cover. I will also be asleep by the 4th quarter and things could get weird. Oregon puts up 50+ on the board.

11Texas vs. 3Oklahoma (-9.5) at Dallas 12:00 ABC GAMEDAY
The Red River
|Jackets here all day. Hide in your shells, Terps.|
The Helluva Engineers are a comin'
Maryland at 13Georiga Tech (-14) 12:00 ESPNU
Uh so Georgia Tech averages 52 points a game and Maryland is horrible. Even if Tech is flat, Maryland will not be able to stop to the option and the Ramblin Wreck will be playing downhill for 60 minutes. This game is a late addition after not liking nor caring about Noles-Deacons. Also the FSU -13 line has moved to -10. I'm off that shhhhhhhh. Oh and here is Tech's fight song.

17Florida at 1LSU (-13.5) 3:30 CBS
Was 11 on Monday. No Brantley for the Gators and LSU is good. Really good. I'd like it more if it was under 10 but I can see a 34-14, 40-20 game very easily.
|Nah, I'm good|
Iowa State at 25Baylor (-16) 7:00 FSN
Taking Baylor again after their loss at K-State at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. Not the money game this week, but RG3 will roll the pitiful Cyclones in the friendly confines of the Bears. And hey, they're still ranked!
Ohio State at 14Nebraska (-11) 8:00 ABC
Picks I am looking at but are not taking:
|Not the ideal home field advantage|
23Florida State (-13) at Wake Forest 12:30 ESPN3.com
Wake is a surprising 3-1, with 3 straight wins after their opening day OT loss in the Carrier Dome. Florida State is reeling after two straight losses (Oklahoma, Clemson) and a bye week. The 'Noles were supposed to be back and now they are 23rd and 2-2. They rebound and smack and Demon Deacons. Hopefully they aren't flat for a 12:30 game.
|Good luck with me, KU|
Kansas at 6Oklahoma State (-32.5) 3:30 ???
|Cardinal roll by this much|
