Pete's Pigskin Prognostications

"Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet" Kipling missed the last part, as East meets west frequently in the SEC. However, in the West, it's LSU and everybody else. In the East, it's just everybody else. There is no clear Eastern team standing above the others.

Week 6
(6-2 last week, 36-7 overall)
Frequently in error, never in doubt

It appears to me that any of the Eastern teams could possibly win the division. Some are more possible than others, it is not beyond the realm of possibility that any of the six teams in the East could wind up on top. Maybe it will be clearer in a couple of weeks.....

For those of you who want to see picks against the spread, go elsewhere. For the rest of you.........

Kentucky @ South Carolina – I'm hopping aboard the Big Blue Bandwagon, at least until they lose. The Wildcats may be overrated, but I think not WAY overrated. (This may not get published ‘till Friday, but I'm picking on Wednesday.) UK by 5.

Louisiana Tech @ Mississippi – Boring, boring, boring. Mississippi by 13..

UAB @ Mississippi State – Boring, boring, boring. Mississippi State by 20.

Houston @ Alabama – Boring, boring, boring. Alabama by 25.

Georgia @ UTK – Just when you think the big orange is just another rotten fruit, they come alive to kick your ass. Tennessee by 3.

Chattanooga @ Arkansas – As a Chattanooga native, I really wish the SEC had a mercy rule. This will be a classic men against boys scenario, and Chattanooga is going to get killed. Arkansas can almost literally name the score. Pigs by 55.

Florida @ LSU – Prior to last week, this game was going to be a classic. It should still be a good one, but a lot of the glitter washed away with Florida's ignominious loss last week. Regardless of last week, LSU is the better team. LSU by 10.

Vanderbilt @ Auburn – In the 1930's the Fordham offensive line was known as "The Seven Blocks of Granite". I'll leave it as an exercise for the reader to come up with an apt metaphor for Vandy's offensive line. Keep in mind that of the 30 non-quarterback runs last week, 11 were for 2 yards or less (5 for negative yardage). VU's defense will keep it close, but offensive futility will ultimately doom the Commodores.

Auburn 20 VU 10.
