The only place I am really excelling is in the
POW thread. I feel pretty good about three or
four of these.

RUTGERS +7.5
I'm basing this one solely on the Rutgers spread record. They haven't lost yet. They
are getting more than a TD at home.

PURDUE +3.5
I really like this one. The Buckeyes don't
blow anyone out. Purdue has the guns to score
against them and should cover if not win with
State looking ahead to Michigan.

LSU -6.5
Another strong play. LSU is the far better team
this year and playing with revenge. They should
have no trouble covering here.

MISSOURI -13
This is where I make my weekly justification for
a Tiger win and cover. They have a respectable
spread record, so I don't feel too guilty.
The Tigers lost last week because they turned the ball over which is not typical of this team.
I did warn that they don't play well in Boulder.
They have come back strong at home after their
previous two losses and should put up a good effort on Saturday. I cannot believe that A&M
has quit for the year. I have too much respect for Coach Francione, but, they sure haven't been very impressive except for their blowout of
Baylor. If Pinkel took a good look at the OU
game tapes, Tigers cover easily.

KANSAS +20
The Hawks should have covered agaist Nebraska but turnovers did them in. OSU seems to still
be reeling from their loss to OU. OSU RB Bell
is hurting and KU can put up some points whether
its Barman or Wittemore at QB. It a lot of points. I'll take em.

TCU -7
I don't see any reason why the Frogs should lose
this season. Cincy has one semi-quality win at
W Va. Frogs going for a BCS Bowl.

GEORGIA -7
It seems to me that the SEC is a bit easier to
handicap. It may be that they have the best
refs in the country. The games seem to play out
true to form. Auburn, as I said last week, only has one quality win. They have Bama next
week and have to play the Dogs between the hedges. The better team wins and covers.

TEXAS/TEXAS TECH OVER 74
The team that loses this game will score in the
30s. The team that wins will be in the 50s. Or
both teams will be in the 40s. They should be into the 70s by the third quarter. I see this
playing out much like the Tech/Missouri game (93 points). My play of the week.

SEC may be easier for you to cap, but I guarantee you it's not because of the refs. I'm an SEC fan, but the SEC refs are PITIFUL! They miss more calls and make more stupid calls than any other league.

I've always thought they did a pretty good job.
I feel the same way you do about the Big 12 refs. Must be in the eye of the beholder. Anyway, I like LSU and Georgia this week. I've
seen a lot of opinions on Auburn, I don't see
it happening.

I only disagree with one thing enough to make a comment. You have GOT to edit your post and remove the "too much respect for coach Franchione" line. The guys might have trouble taking your advice after mistakes like that one.

I agree with you guys. I don't respect the way
Francione left Bama, but he is a good coach, and
that is all I was implying. That's why TCU hired him. That's why Bama hired him and that's
why the Aggies hired him away. I think he wishes he was back in Alabama now, as do many
Aggie supporters. Good luck today.
