    I can't believe that last spread. USC giving points to a home team that just beat Oregon on the road, USC which lost to BC? That seems like a pretty big number to put on the letdown theory.

    Probably true but ND won't cover 16.5 on UNC

    Considering they still have @Fla ST, @ ASU, and @USC to go, that's a fairly bold prediction, Xan.

    Hard to believe Michigan is favored.

    Same for Georgia, Haven't seem them to do anything to warrant being favored on the road in the SEC.

    Think the dream continues for Ole Miss this week, but reality crashes Starkville.

    Florida has canceled its Monday press conference. Not sure what that means, but probably not good for the Gators.

    Hungover from celebrating that big offensive explosion.

    I think it means they're on to Cincinnati.

    There is no way that Notre Dame gets through that schedule undefeated, and that's no knock against them. I don't know that anybody would. Their most realistic chance is to go 2-1 in those games, not embarrass themselves in the loss, win the rest, and get some help.

    I can't see them covering 16.5 against NC.

    After giving up 29 and 27 in opening wins against Nobody State U, the Heels have given up 70, 50, 34 the last 3 weeks -- or 51 a game.

    Notre Dame might not be Goliath this season but they'll pound the shit out of UNC.
