33-23, They Haven't Fired Me Yet! Here's Week #9

By Amsinger - October 22, 2007


Just when progress was being made, I collapse in week #8. My wife is laughing in my face, my daughter is favoring Dora's knowledge of college football over my own. It's getting bad. I NEED a big week of picking perfection. Everyone, unite, hold hands, close your eyes, go to a happy place with me and guide your prognosticating pal into a football euphoria he hasn't experienced yet.

Whoa, that's deep.

Here's week #9 on "OFF PROMPTER!"

In case you're counting, here's a statistical breakdown of how I'm picking so far this season:

Week #1: 53-17
Week #2: 54-8
Week #3: 47-19
Week #4: 43-17
Week #5: 44-15
Week #6: 31-25 (gross)
Week #7: 37-18
Week #8: 33-23 (disgusting)

Overall Record for 2007-08 season: 342-142.
My weekly average is 42-17.

Like I do each and every week, I predict all Division 1A games (otherwise known as the College Football Bowl Subdivision). This blog will carry scores from the ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten and MAC. On Wednesday, you'll get your full of CUSA, Mountain West, Pac-Ten, SEC, Sun Belt and WAC.
