In a week with bad matchups and worse spreads, Vandy, LSU, and UGA failing to cover doomed most of the group. Congratulations to the 19 poor souls who, like me, saw the disaster in Piscataway for Arkansas coming a mile away. On the other hand, what the hell am I doing picking Tulane?

Really hitting the meat of conference play now. Am I crazy for picking against Bama beating a mere 16 point spread at home? Time for the Sooner to stomp out the echoes. Wisconsin is more of a "hope they win and derail Ohio St" than anything else. UCF is quickly becoming this year's BCS buster darling pick and they are hosting this upset special (how in the world did SCar agree to that?)
