COLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEK 7: SEPERATING FROM THE FIELD.
So, 14 games above 500 hundred, am I separating form the field? Or, have I been over rated and will I crumble late in the game as time expires. Auburn/Arkansas and Ohio State/Wisconsin big time teams, big time, conferences, must watch games. 7 weeks in I'm not really focused on many rules, road dogs are usually bad in the college game, I always keep that in mind. Snap counts, audibles a lot of stuff to deal with the on the road.
Ohio State +4
Big Ten, Big prime time football. A great opportunity for Wisconsin, at home to pick off a Heisman trophy candidate and a National Championship contender, and put a their names on the Map and the talking heads will proclaim the Big Ten has a great depth of great teams. #6 in points for, # 7 in points against, the Buck Eyes are the closest thing to a lock, even on the road. The Sweater-Vest will prepare his team for the road and the QB star, Pryor will shine in an impressive road victory.
69th in passing yards, 45th in points against but 8th ranked nationally in rushing yards. When a team gets one dimensional they get predictable, damn stale. Both of these teams can get stgant, the Tigers only average a little more than 200 yards passing per game, but when the option and the run is blazing, they are a contender in the talented SEC. Great football, must watch!
The Cavaliers can slang it a little. Vercia has 1100+ passing yards but only 6 touchdowns. 71st in points scored, so the 6 and a HALF in crucial. The Tar Heels are not ranked over 45 in any major team stat. Virgina has learned from tough losses at Georgia Tech and Florida State.
The Herbstreet called Syracuse an outright win. Was it the hype machine or a true winner? I'll take the points and the home field advantage. 11th nationally ranked in points agiainst. Nuff said, next pick please.
Michigan St -7
Sparty, at home. Big win against big brother last week. Good thing it's only 7, they might be a little hung over from that win against the speedy Denard Robinson. 21st in points against, the Fighting Illini, cannot pass the ball, near the bottom in passing yards. Locked!
Sooners at home, big school, big points, covered, easy! Right?
The Herbstreet, picked, Miss State, freaking out right, ballsy! Meyer, at home, Tebow Ltie. Come On HERB! Top ranked defense, top ranked rushing offense. Good progrmas, elite programs, do not loose 3 in a row. LSU, and Alabama, Gators roll after two disappointing losses.
Home dog, take it. Denard, fast Michigan team, pumped to redeem themselves, at home. Seems easier then it looks. Going against the #1 ranked defense in the Hawkeyes, the Wolverines looked to set that early trend right and put up a gang of points.
Washington St +23.5
23.5 points at home, nuff said. Right? Crowd will help a less talented Washington State. I love home dogs, in college.
COLLEGE FOOTBALL 2010 RECORD: 24-11
LAST WEEK: 4-1
