    How do we know what team is the underdog? I think I can spot the obvious ones. Am I missing something.

    I don’t condone @The_Sackman being rude, but if you can’t figure this out, you’re one stupid, stupid son of a bitch.
  • Damn half point away...I'll probably post my picks here anyways for the hell of it.

    Now that’s a good one. You can’t condone someone else being rude but youre more than happy to be rude yourself. Ah. The spirit of Love and Honor.

    ‘Splain it.
    I read it based on 2nd team. When in doubt, look at Alabama.
    Oklahoma is +14, so Bama is favored by 14. The Sooners are the underdog.

  • Final Exam week.  I completely forgot until this morning.  Picks are in.

    Thanks, Eddie!
  • EDDIEEDDIE Wealthy Alum
    10 in. Will post all picks shortly.
  • I am going to miss today’s games due to a sudden family issue. Any way I can pick just with the remainder?
  • EDDIEEDDIE Wealthy Alum
    Sure.
  • EMU going up against Georgia Southern and their triple option right now in the Eagle vs. Eagle matchup. Curious how we'd handle GaSo with us already having played Army pretty well as the game went on.
  • NescacdadNescacdad Senior Barfly
    EMU was just one play away -4th and 11 conversion by GASO

  • Eh, I wasn’t going to win anyway. Since Eddie has already posted everyone’s picks I will sit this one out I think, lest I be accused of trying to game the system.

    You won't be accused. Can't help sudden family issues. Feel free to post.
