    R-E-S-P-E-C-T. At this point RObert, you have very little, after that so called “watershed” victory over the U earlier this year. I’ll give you about as much respect for that victory that you gave Texas for beating Nebraska. Our schools basically beat up on two currently mediocre programs, with long and rich traditions of winning. At least Texas went on the road and won in Lincoln – you had the Canes in the Pizza palace.

    Well, tonite can CHANGE all of that, in a HUGE way. Can Lu-vulle stop WVU’s two-headed monster running game? Can WVU throw on man-to-man coverage as the ‘ville puts 8 in the box? Can Brohm get the ball downfield consistently? That’s what its all about – we’ll see tonight. I know Petrino has had this game on his mind for over a year now – he’s probably had the game plan done since the middle of the Summer. Lu-ville will be prepared, but can they get it done. I honestly want Lu-vulle to win this game and I’ll be pulling for them in front of the tube. As far as my pick goes, I’m going with WVU. Sorry RObert, I really hope I’m wrong. Enjoy the game.

    Mark, what about that ‘watershed’ win over K-State in Manhattan, KS last month…???

    I agree with your analysis except I’ll take the Ville, 41-27…

    gotta go with the Ville as well…more balance on both sides of the ball.

    Did anyone read USA Today – today? They were all over West Virginia. They dedicate a full page to tonight’s coverage w/ 2/3rds of it about Schmitt the 6-3 250 mamoth WVU walk-on who is the lead blocker for arguable the best backfield in the country along with a blurb about a WVU4.0 middle lineback. The last 3rd of the article highlighted Ville’s inablity to stop a mobile quarterback. At least the Ville can’t claim the title “Paper Champion” of the best game of the season to date! I’m going with Papa Johnsmen to Pity those Fools! Ville covers.

    A very, very sincere Congratulations Bobby. Enjoy the ride – an absolutely awesome display by the ‘ville.

    Mark, thanks for the kind words… Hopefully we can come down long enough to get ready for undefeated Rutgers…

    As for the other 4 games, I like:

    Iowa State over KU
    Tech to cover vs Baylor
    Texas to wax Okie State and cover
    Nebraska big over Mizzou

    Enjoy the weekend all.

    KU at Iowa St — no line
    Like a true KU masochist, I mean fan, I am searching for yet another reason to get behind the team this week. The scoring stats point to the not so mighty Jayhawks edging out over the Cyclones. But that 0-3 road record is like a flashing neon sign telling me not to make the same stupid mistake I make every week. I just can’t do it. I have to take the dreaded bird storm to win.

    Baylor at Tech (-17.5)
    Tech at home, coming off that amazing game against Texas last week is a lock. They will control the game against the Baylor “this is my mean face” Bears, and cover.

    Okie St. at Texas (-17)
    Texas is at home, Colt is in the saddle, and the official Silver Spurs Bevo Museum opens this weekend. A winning combination. The mighty Horns cover.

    Wildcard – Mizzou (+6.5) at Nebraska
    Because I live in a “Jayhawk” household, I am required to reject the Tigers in every possible sport, at every possible opportunity. Ergo, Cornhuskers cover.

    KU at Iowa St — no line
    KU gets by the Cyclones

    Baylor at Tech (-17.5)
    Tech is PO’d and Baylor doesn’t have a QB. Going with the Red Raiders to win big & cover.

    Okie St. at Texas (-17)
    Did you know in the last 3 years Texas has outscored Okie State 118-0 in the 2nd half!! A confident OSU team comes in…TEXAS wins 31-21, but Ok. State covers.

    Wildcard – Mizzou (+6.5) at Nebraska
    Nebraska got blind-sided by Okie State last week and is pissed off. Nebraska rolls.

    KU picks up the ellusive road win and is one away from a bowl bid
    Tech needs a statement game…and makes it today over the Bears — Tech covers
    Texas sees what’s before them and needs a convincing win – TX covers
    BlackShirts cover

    Major props to ROberto’s Cards! I believe if the Red Birds stay undefeated, they should play for the national championship. They played well, despite some very unfortunate happening for the Cards. They had some big plays on O that should have been so much bigger if they just kept their footing. ROberto – lobby to the equipment mgr for different shoes at Papa John’s – those fools kept tripping over their own feet! Secondly, the score of this game would have been more lopsided if the D could have prevented some big plays and if number 35 could make an open field tackle – although against that backfield that’s no easy task. If the Cards play Ohio St. for the nat’l championship – I think the Cards win. Ohio St’s backfield is not as good as WVU’s.

    Someone explain to me why Game Day is in college station. This ABC-ESPN venture is killing the quality of what arguably use to be the best show on televison. The only good thing about Game Day in college station is that the Aggies will recieve the award for the weakest signs in the GameDay back drop in the history of GameDay.

    On to the Picks:
    Mangino’s hawks are bowl bound. The last half of the season should prove the 1.5M man is worth the cash. Kansas is a better team than their record shows. KU covers.

    Tech at home against a Bear’s offense that is in it’s first year and happns to be the same as ours minus their starting quarterback should be a lock. But Tech at 11am = never a good showing. The Raider Nation is a Knight school. We are hung over in the mornings. It’s just about the longest (and only) tradition we have a Tech and we follow it to the letter. Even Captain Leach is still recovering from Friday night’s” too much lean in my cup” This game scares me. Huge let down after last week plus 11am kick off is not a good formula. I’ll hope that maybe our not being bowl eligible at this point in the season might wake us up – Tech covers – but gets off to a very sloooow start.

    Texas at home, remembering last year against Okie St. and desperatly needing style points to have an outside chance of playing in the Nat’l Championship means that UT will have close to 50 points at the half. This is the LOCK of the century. Take Texas and Overs BIG!

    Nebraska at home after a big loss should beat Mizzou but I bet it’s pretty close. I’ll take the Cornhollio’s and the points.

    Lu-ville ROLLS tonight and goes onto the National Championship game – which it rightly deserves. Sorry SEC fan, that’s the “system” right now – deal with it!!!

    I took UL last week by 17 over WVU and that would have been the final spread if not for a meaningless WVU TD late in the game against a prevent Cardinal D…

    This week I like the Cards in a close one… 23-17, Cards meaning that Rutgers will cover the 6.5 spread, but L’ville gets a road win over a top 15 team and the accompanying bump in BCS points…

    Petrino has called for more backing from Lee Corso to keep the BCS momentum going, and I am all for it! Fowler also thinks they’ll win by more than one touchdown tonight, and is voting for them to play in the national championship if they run the table. So I think Louisville not only wins, but covers tonight against Rutgers.
