    I can't understand that Ohio State number. At all. MAYBE if Cook can't play. But even then....

    It has to be based on the assumption Cook either won't play or will be ineffective if he does. But then why isn't it a no line?

    Georgia's only a 14 1/2-point favorite at home against a Sun Belt school?
    I know Georgia Southern's decent, but really? Georgia's still a seven-win SEC team. That's either a massive trap laid by Vegas or the easiest money you'll make all week.

    The narrative. I bet those wins were against some real powerhouses.

    The week Ga. played Fla., I think Rutgers could have rolled Ga.

    I love Michigan, Memphis and Northwestern, especially that Memphis play.

    If their FG slides over a foot at Houston, they're probably a 10 point favorite at Temple.

    If Cook is the QB, I really like Sparty and the points.

    Have you watched Georgia's offense lately? Without Chubb and with Schottenheimer calling the plays, it has been a comedy of errors. Third and 41 was an actual thing that happened on Saturday.

    I had Georgia and caught a rare winner with them but each time they showed the cutaway of Young Schottenheimer, I felt a little more sick.

    Sorry to interrupt the gambling discussion, but I'd be remiss not to mention the unbelievably snotty column by Marc Tracy in the Times today. He snarked at every team he regarded as not having won with a performance up to his standards, which was all of them with one exception, and concluded by saying Alabama was the only team that deserves to be in the playoffs. Its loss was a "fluke." Clemson beating Syracuse by 10 means Clemson sucks.

    Nothing against Tracy, but I don't know that the NY Times is my go-to for deep college football analysis.
