34-19...At Least I Didn't Lose 20, Here's Week #10!

By Amsinger - October 29, 2007


Here we go again. I had four fewer losses than week #8 and I'm still fuming. My upsets specials are making me especially upset. My "locks" are making me look like a bLOCK-head. Frequent readers of this blog are picking whoever I DON'T pick - because I'm struggling. It's been a crazy year of college football, just another outcome I couldn't predict.

Now that I'm done whiping my tears, let's look back at my hits and misses from week #9.

HITS:

Washington St. over UCLA: After the Bruins beat Cal, many believed Karl Dorrell's bunch was on to something. I knew the Bruins were on to another loss.

Oregon over USC: Many believed Oregon would lose to the Trojans top-notch defense. WRONG!

Ohio State over Penn State: I said the Buckeyes would win handily and they did. Who cares if PSU has over 100,000 white shirts in the stands.

New Mexico over Air Force: After winning three in a row, the Falcons were the hot pick - I saw right through the Air Force fog and realized RB Rodney Ferguson would be the difference maker...and he was.

Tennessee over South Carolina: Mark it down...the biggest win in Phil Fulmer's career at Tennessee. YES, bigger than winning the national championship. If he lost to Spurrier Saturday night, he would lose his job at the end of the year because he would be out of the SEC East race. With the win, Tennessee is in the driver's seat and has a favorable schedule to win out. Huge upset win - that I predicted.

MISSES:

Va Tech over Boston College: I'm still not a believer in this BC for BCS BS. As for this game, I was wrong.

Fresno State over Boise State: Who knew the Bulldogs defense was THAT slow?

Indiana over Wisconsin: The final was 33-3...whoops.

Texas A&M over Kansas: Dare I say the Jayhawks are actually...good?

Kentucky to win the SEC: Thank you Mississippi State, thanks a lot!

Enough with last week! Here's week #10 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)
Week #9: 34-19 (blah)

Overall Record for 2007-08 season: 376-161.
My weekly average is 41-17.

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.
