Fearle$$ football forecast: Horns (-10) are saucy

Olemiss-213The Big Mac Blog returns with more football predictions. When we last left this segment I was bathing in imaginary riches. I began the 2011 season with $50 of Monopoly money, and by season's end I was plus $100. Cash. 

I finished 2-2-1 last week. For the season I remain plus $10.

Last week's results:
1. Philadelphia Eagles (-9) at Cleveland Browns. Eagles. LOSS. Mike Vick, thank you very much.
2. Miami Dolphins at Houston Texans (-12). Texans. WIN. Easy money.
3. Savannah State at Florida State (-70). Savannah State. OFF. Once the game went to a running clock, Vegas said all bets are off.
4. Georgia Bulldogs (-3) at Missouri Tigers. Georgia. WIN. Had it all the way.
5. Texas Tech Red Raiders (-19) at Texas State Bobcats. Bobcats. LOSS. So wrong. Don’t think I was the only one to whiff on this one.

This week's picks:
1. Browns (-7) at Bengals. Bengals. Brandon Weeden is going to struggle against a Cincy defense that just got embarrassed in Baltimore.
2. Lions at 49ers (-6.5). Lions. Hand-shake Gate is going to be close.
3. Texas A&M (-12.5) at SMU. Aggies. Better is better.
4. Texas (-10) at Ole Miss. Horns. UT isn’t that great, but Ole Miss is not that good.
5. Houston at UCLA (-17). Bruins. Not going to be a good year for Cougar High.

TCU will cover -21 by halftime... this is EASY money

Seniors & Waffles

Rise up Rebel Nation!!!

We should lose by waaay more than 10. That's the lock down pick of the century. Texas will cover 10 points easy.

That TCU game is going to be a slaughter. I always worry a little bit when we play a REALLY useless opponent, but Kansas really is the dregs of college football. My bet says we cover the spread.


You are off on your Lions v 49ers pick. Niners win that won going away. Too much defense for Stafford and the Lions to handle.
