    I know Tennessee might be due for a letdown after the Florida win, but that line against Georgia looks like easy money after what we saw in Oxford.

    Then again, I've been well trained to be pessimistic about the Dawgs.

    Didn't exactly dominate at UCLA the other night. And it's 3.5 at Washington, so it's basically even on a neutral field.

    What do you mean Bama-Kentucky isn't one of the week's most interesting games?!?!?!?

    Pitt -1 is legalized theft.

    If Marshall has anything at all resembling a quarterback take them. Pitt's secondary might be the worst in the country.

    I'm interested to see how LSU responds after Miles got shitcanned. No matter, it's a tough place for Mizzou to get a (somewhat) signature victory this season.

    Louisville-Clemson looks like fun.

    Two solid matchups in the state of Michigan on Saturday.

    I think the Wolverines are for real, especially seeing how Colorado won in Eugene. Hard to see the Badgers winning two huge road games in a row ... but they're probably the team to beat in the Big 10 West.

    Broncos-Chips on national TV? And so early in the season? What say you, SJ.com graduates of Western and Central? (I know we have some)

    Bet everything on Cal, West Virginia and Pitt.

    As I much as I believe PJ's Row the Boat shit is utter bunk, the millenials he's recruiting with it seem to buy it and that team has talent. CMU has enough talent to hang with them, I think. WMU's the favorite but it will probably come down to the fourth quarter.

    Through no fault of his own McCaffrey fatigue setting in. ESPN never ending hype is
    is becoming a bit much. By the end of the season he will be a popular as Duke Basketball
