Or is it the other way around?


Week 12 Line-up

Here you go….

  • Iowa State at Kansas (-26)
  • Louisville (+6.5) at South Florida
  • Oklahoma at Texas Tech (+9)
  • Wildcard: Duke at Norte Dame (-5)
  • Wildcard: Ohio St at Michigan (+4)

KU  Iowa St at KU
Iowa St. is riding a wave of momentum coming off of their second straight win…though last week’s bizarre win over CU is suspect. Prior to, the Clones gave OU a run for their money and beat a bowl eligible Iowa team. They are one of the conference’s best teams at time-of-possession (for what that’s worth), the fourth least penalized (KU being the least penalized in the country), have a solid ground game, and one of the best senior QB/Receiver combos KU will face all season.

Typically a “body of work” such as this that would steer me away from giving up 26. But who am I to bet against the streak on Senior Day. This is as uncomfortable a KU line  that I’ve gone with this year…but I am sticking with Hawks. Look for BMac, one of the best untold stories on this KU team, to get to 1000 yards today on his final game at Memorial Stadium.

TexasLousiville at South Florida
Classic case of a one time homecoming queen, caught up in all the new-found attention, becomes the class whore by semester’s end. Now am I referring to the ESPN the Mag cover boys or the nations first #2 cursed team in SFla.. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm….Given I am in a time crunch, South Florida’s stock continues to free-fall, while the CARD(inal) has leveled off. Putting my money on the Cards.

TechOU at Tech
Best game of the day. While everyone is talking about the $10K Leach shelled out this week the troops in Norman were watching the Ducks unravel. No question now, most are looking for the Sooners win out and play for the national championship. But line of thinking comes crashing down today and Tech not only covers, they upset the Sooners at home. Get your guns up and your lean on…..

Duke at ND The golden domers can’t pin this poor performance on academic standards. Going with Duke to cover here.

Ohio St at MichiganHart and Henney play hurt and salvage the season. Michigan covers and wins.


Standings through 11

The pack begins to separate as Blaine, Julie and I picked up 4 of 5 over the weekend. With only two weeks in the regular season and the conference championships remaining  Julie would need to fall flat on her face — pun intended — to give up four points to me. Blaine has the best shot of overtaking the winner but he will need to go out on a limb to do so. Should make for an interesting finish….

  1. Julie – 29
  2. Blaine – 27
  3. self – 26
  4. RObert – 23
  5. Mark – 20

Feel free to double check the results….
