To be fair I deserved better. I lost the Florida/Kentucky game even though I picked the Gators by 36 and they led by 42 at HALFTIME! I think I should get credit for that one. I also need to spend less time with the ACC, which has cost me several outcomes. I thought about giving up, just quitting. But then I remembered winners never quit, quitters never win. But more importantly, Ray's gonna pay me for it no matter how bad I do!
Twelve To Grow On
Iowa (minus 18-½) over Illinoize: The Illini were destroyed last week in a game that could completely destroy their confidence. Iowa needs to make a statement. The Illini get destroyed again. Iowa 38-13
Notre Dame (plus 3-½) over Purdue: After seeing the Charlie Weis story about the dying kid how could anyone pick against them? N.D. 27-24
Ole Miss (plus 21-½) over Tennessee: The Vols are a lot better than the Rebels are, but it's been a tough week. They played Monday night, traveled afterwards and celebrated awhile after that. Ole Miss played pretty well in battling a darn good Wyoming team. Tennessee 27-16
LSU (minus 14-½) over Mississippi State: Georgia coulda and shoulda scored a lot more against these Dogs. Wounded LSU will be in a lousy mood. LSU 35-17
Auburn (minus 14-½) over South Carolina: The HBC needs players in the worst way. He won't get them this week. Auburn 30-11

Last Week: 5 right, 7 Brooks, .417
Year to Date: 28 right, 20 Zookers, .583

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Does the state of Florida have too many college football teams? UCF, FIU, FAU are a combined 1-9.
Then again, Florida, FSU, MIAMI and USF are a combined 12-2.
