We agree on Notre Dame and Stanford. Disagree on the OU and Baylor games.
I'm staying away from the Ga game. Not sure how bad they want to be there. Were 5 yards from playing in NC.
Might be betting with my heart on the OU game - really want them to beat the aggies. But I still think part of the aggies success this year is because SEC teams aren't used to the no-huddle spread. Hope OU is fired up and realizes the importance this game. Hopefully they can keep it within 4.5.
Think the LSU game can go either way.
Won't bet against the Horns. Going to be an interesting game.
Like your NW and Stanford picks.
What are your thoughts on the Tech and TCU games?
That Big10 CCG is still fresh in my mind. I think Nebbish gets pantsed again.
I think the Cotton bowl will be decided by aTm's front 4 (DFENSE) and Moore will basically pound Jones into submission. I see it getting ugly quick.
Tech, if Tubbs were still there, would have been a solid pick. W/ all the uncertainty, 12 points is a lot to give for a mediocre team.
I like the over (41) for the TCU game.
I'm adding Boise (-5) and Fresno (-12) to my card.
Just heard that Kingsbury will be in Lubbock during the bowl games. Might move the spread in the Tech and A&M game.
Georgia pick is a lock...I dont gamble but I might on that. Nebraska is awful in an awful conference
2 formula's have worked recently: Dogs and fading Big10. I Loved Stanford -6. Not sure what the Alvarez angle does. Stanford is about as a well coached team as there is. There arent too many games I really like a great deal. I tend to be more of a 2nd Half bettor during bowl games, its very tough to figure out which team will show up and if the heavy favorite who everyone thinks should "roll", will actually be up for the game emotionally.
Agree on Georgia. Domers may actually be a solid bet if I can get it around 11 by game time. Applewhite makes the Texas line interesting. Would think it makes Texas much more unpredictable. Im sure the offensive guys will be "up" for the game, not sure about the Defense. Riley flirting with Wisc. is intriguing although I just think hes looking for more $.
West Virginia -4 over Syracuse-agree
Baylor Pick em over UCLA-agree
USC -10 over Ga Tech-Tech
Louisville +13.5 over Florida-Florida
Stanford -6.5 over Wisconsin- agree
Oklahoma +4.5 over A&M- A&M
Notre Dame +10 over Alabama- It is hard not to take the points in this. I believe that ND is a really fine football team. Turnovers will decide if ND wins the game or Alabama blows them out. Bama is a lot like OU, let them get ahead and they kill you. I will go with ND to cover even though I usually root against them for past history. I do like Kelly.

275-0 scoring margin
Dana X Bible's National Championship team
Hate to see this season end as I had my best year in ten years of playing, quadrupling my investment.
When the spreads were first released I went with
WV -4 over Syracuse
ole miss -3 over PItt
OU +6 over Aggy
TCU -2.5 over MSU
Stanford -6.5 over Wisky
