Week 11 Line-up

Here’s this week’s line-up

  • Louisville (+16) at West Virginia…this is a Thursday night game
  • Kansas (-6) at Oklahoma St
  • Texas Tech (+6.5) at Texas
  • Wildcard: Florida (-6.5) at South Carolina
  • Wildcard: tamu (+19.5) at mizzou

Louisville at West Virginia
I’m going out on a limb here and will take the Cards to cover. Reason….two fold. One, everyone will most likely go with the Mountaineers, being the logical pick, so this is a chance to pick up a point. Second, Louisville still has a chance to salvage this season with a win tonight. I don’t think they can win but they will pull out all the stops against a defense that was exposed by what has become a mediocre South Florida team. Yes, factoring in the putrid Louisville D makes me cringe as I type this but the play of Brohm and a few turn-overs keep it within the line. Go Cards…

KUKU at Oklahoma St.
Basketball as the bridesmaid…that is the talk coming out of Lawrence. Self and co., who is a huge KU football fan, play twice this weekend and all the talk is about football post season possibilities…Holiday, Cotton, BCS….

Storyline….KU will handle the run. The ‘man’, who has salivated over the Nebraska tape over over a week now, won’t hesitate to turn the majority of the looks over to their talented receiving and tight end corp. KU will get their points, OSU’s secondary is horrific, both on the ground and through the air. This one will be a shoot-out with KU wearing the Pokes down late in the game. KU covers, in a night game, where we can only hope Mangino breaks out the velour once again. Come on Velvet Phog.

Texas vs Tech

I’m torn on this one and looking for any stat that will push me one way or the other. The one that jumped out is, once again, Texas’ secondary has been exposed and Tech, as always, is proficient through the air. Charles has been the difference maker over the last two week but his play alone wont be enough to cover the spread. I’ll take Tech to cover.

Wildcard: South Carolina vs. Florida Florida knows the Ol Ball Coach hype will garner the attention, hell I picked this one, and will turn this into a statement game. Gators cover.

Wildcard:tamu vs mizzou missouri is sick of hearing about the 76 KU put up last week and will go for 77. mizzou covers while Fran searchs out a Columbia strip club in the middle the third quarter.
