Hit 'Em Up
--Should PYB accuse the Omaha World Herald's Dirk Chatelain of plagiarism? Maybe....but a great read nonetheless. Bangs out 10+ solid points.
--PYB also likes this story. Recruiting guys from the homes of Eazy-E, DJ Quik, AMG and former NU great Mike Brown as well as Florida, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. See....how fucking hard is that?
--More from Bo Pinelli's tired bully act...
--Looks like another trunk-slamming weekend in NoCal for Eldrick Woods. Guess it wasn't the lack of practice time that was keeping him from regaining his top form from yesteryear. Which was 10+ years ago....
--Enjoy your Friday....and our track of the day. Energy booster for a Friday morning...
--Below are some guest prognostications...we'll see if this guy has any juice. His Week One picks were shit. His friend who sent them to us thinks Taylor Martinez is a good QB, so consider the source:
Boise State (20.5) @ Fresno State - Fresno State has the athletes and QB Carr can score some points but Boise State has just dominated teams on Friday nights. This is a tempting home dog but I think that Boise ends up covering this one late in the game...Boise State 41 Fresno State 21
Ohio State (11) @ Nebraska - Both teams coming off losses...Nebraska is now 1-6 ATS in their last seven games and OSU is 6-1 ATS. Nebraska's defense will come to play against a young Buckeye offense with a freshmen QB making his first start on the road. Ohio State is without their two best WRs and best RB but they still have talent...however, this is a tough spot for them as Nebraska will be well-focused after getting drilled last week in Madison. I think that the Huskers come back this week after circling the wagons and if they start strong, this one could get out of hand because Ohio State looks like a program that has given up on its coaches....Nebraska 28 Ohio State 10
Oklahoma (-10) vs Texas - This might be the lock of the season, Oklahoma is going to just destroy the Longhorns and Texas will be searching for answers...OU 53 Texas 14
Kansas (31.5) @ Oklahoma State - KU is 119th in the country in pass defense...the Cowboys are going to set some records...OSU 66 KU 20
Miami (7) @ Virginia Tech - Miami will do enough to cover this late...V Tech 20 Miami 17
Florida (13.5) @ LSU - without Brantley, Florida might not score...LSU 30 Florida 9
Michigan (-7.5) @ Northwestern - Same story as the last two seasons, Michigan starts out strong with a creampuff schedule and then comes crashing back down to earth. The Wildcats have the better defense and QB and should have a ton of confidence at home...wrong team favored...Northwestern 31 Michigan 20
Missouri (-3) @ Kansas State - Kansas State is an underdog for the third week in a row...but they won SU in the first two games and are undefeated on the season. I think Snyder has a defense he likes in Manhattan and a QB that has played very well in some very tough games...take the Wildcats...KSU 31 Missouri 28
Auburn (10) @ Arkansas - Auburn really needs this game and I don't believe in the Arkansas defense...Auburn 35 Arkansas 31
Alabama (-28.5) vs Vanderbilt - The Tide will absolutely crush Vandy...any spread under 30 is probably robbery...Alabama 41 Vanderbilt 6
Buffalo 24 Eagles 20
Pittsburgh 14 Tennessee 21
Seattle 6 Giants 24
Arizona 30 Vikings 14
Kansas City 20 Colts 17
Oakland 28 Houston 31
San Diego 38 Denver 28
New England 38 Jets 14
Atlanta 35 Green Bay 31
