Pick It and Stick It: Sticking With The Crowd
It’s the hustle and bustle of college football. At the beginning of the year, everyone is tied 0-0. Slowly and weekly, the winners bubble up and the losers peter out. We’re getting into week 3 and it’s still crowded. We haven’t yet hit the real bubbling point. Apparently it’s Road Test Weekend so we’ll more than likely get the cauldron cooking real quick. Speaking of being crowded, I’m planning and surfing the flesh at the Austin City Limits Music Festival. Granted I have Sunday tickets so it won’t be too bad, but Saturday’s at Third Base Sports Bar. Let’s hope people don’t bubble up vomit and I don’t peter out.
Last week there were a handful of games that looked exciting while there was nothing going on for a backup. It’s kind of the same way this week. The big matchup sees Oklahoma heading to Florida State. That game is a 3 point spread, amazingly in the Sooners favor. That will be a tasty one. But we’re here to talk about picks! So the big spreads see Texas A&M of all schools looking rail those spuds from Idaho. But let’s not forget Alabama’s expected battle against North Texas. We already talked about a close one, but some of the others see Illinois against Arizona State in a toss up. I’m not sure I’ve seen a closer spread. Big 12 wise, I’m stoked for Kansas State’s battle at Kent State. It will be close. Texas and UCLA hook up again and I’m not sold on the Longhorns wide spread. Finally, Kansas tries to strike gold twice against Georgia Tech. I think they can do it.
