I hate Tennessee, but I think they will keep it close and at least cover.

I have Miami winning straight up with +220 odds... I don't think they will win, but I liked the odds.

Dennis Dixon is a complete moron. Already 2 or 3 times in the first half he has run out of bounds for a 10 yard loss inestad of throwing the ball out of bounds,

The SEC's highest-ranked team is winning 3-0 at halftime over Miss State.
November 5, 2005 | Unregistered CommenterStephen Kim
Liking the odds can be a dangerous thing. Especially if it entices you to make a bet you don't think you'll win. I like those odds too. That means I better keep my wallet in my pants pocket. :)

Oregon up 20-10! If they cover, I will win my 3 team parlay of South Carolina (+4@ Ark), and SMU (winning by 20 over Rice, need to win by 8 or more).

November 5, 2005 | Unregistered CommenterStephen Kim
You might win a 3-team parlay?!?!?! That's freaking amazing!!! I'm totally taking you to Vegas with me!

Stephen. Considering his experience, I'd almost rather if he's in doubt take the OOB sack rather than throw into coverage. It's harder than it looks to dump one when running for your life and more often than not, inexperienced QB's tend to throw that int rather than just dump it far too often.

Bama is going to open it up on MSU. MSU can't hold on much longer. Now how did the SEC, when it made up the schedule, end up with that as its premier mathup?
November 5, 2005 | Unregistered CommenterUSCDynasty
Phew. Notre Dame is going to cover.

To SK: The Pac-10's second-highest ranked team is losing 52-7 in the fourth to Arizona.

Cody-Wake me up when USC beats Miss State 17-0, thanks to 2 big Miss State turnovers.
November 5, 2005 | Unregistered CommenterStephen Kim
USC did well against a diff SEC also-ran in Ark. So I think they'd fare ok against MSU. Nice try, SEC fan.
November 5, 2005 | Unregistered CommenterStephen Kim
Look at all of you, holding on to your dicks.

USC is better than Alabama--I don't think anyone would argue against that. But, given what we've seen today, is anyone really going to say that UCLA, Oregon, and Cal can beat anyone? Those teams are the next best in the Pac 10 (apologies, SK--I'd put ASU 5th), but none of them look too capable. I'd take 'Bama against any of them and like my odds--and I think 'Bama might be the 4th best team in the SEC (LSU, Georgia, Auburn).

Is the Pac 10 a 1-team league? I don't think so, but given that every argument about the greatness of the Pac 10 relative to the SEC seems to reference them (and usually, their win over 0-5 in the SEC Arkansas), it's hard to argue against the claim.

Miami was great in the early part of the decade, but the rest of the Big East was rubbish and no one with any sense argued that it was legit. If there's no depth, I don't care if USC is 1995 Nebraska--it doesn't make the conference good.

One last thing--I just got through watching a good bit of the Oregon State-Washington game, and that shit was every bit as unwatchable as anything you'll ever see in the SEC. Got-almighty-damn it was hideous.

Cody- I'm glad that you are impressed with my college football betting. The one lock is to always take the under in an SEC game.
November 5, 2005 | Unregistered CommenterStephen Kim
How many times will ESPN talk about how "smart" or "intelligent" the VT fans are?

They will need to use their supposed brains to figure out how in the world the Hokies can get to the Rose Bowl after they lose to Miami.
November 5, 2005 | Unregistered CommenterStephen Kim
I will be the first to admit that at the beginning I thought Davie was a decent announcer.

This season, though, he has been a complete joke. He never says ANYTHING that is remotely insightful.

To wit, early on tonight he claimed the VT fans were smart because they were loud when Miami had the ball, but not so loud when VT had the ball. Does this pass for analysis? WTF, ESPN?
November 5, 2005 | Unregistered CommenterSolon
Solon- Precisely... Nowadays, I rarely learn anything new from commentators. They speak in simplified SEC terms. I'm just kidding, SEC fans.
November 5, 2005 | Unregistered CommenterStephen Kim
You are on tonight, SK.

Keep it going; I had VT -6' tonight, so I need something to make me laugh.
November 5, 2005 | Unregistered CommenterSolon
I had Miami +220 straight up though I didnt want to make that bet. I'm glad I did. It makes up for the beatings I took on previous Saturdays.
