Round #2 of Week #9: October Magic!

By Amsinger - October 23, 2007


In my previous post I picked the ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten and MAC conferences. If you notice my record within those respective leagues last week - I know what I'm talking about. BUT...my upcoming post - which you're reading at the moment, is where I'm having a bit of a problem. The CUSA, Independents (where I dominate), Mountain West, Pac-Ten, SEC, Sun Belt and WAC (good here too) are the conferences I seem to have an issue prognosticating. Can't put my finger on the reason why, so I'll just put my finger on the keyboard an punch out another week of picks in the second half of week #9 on "OFF PROMPTER!!!!!"

Let's get the party started in a different way. I need to shake things up. So I'm starting with the best slate of games this week. I'm starting with the Pac-Ten. Then I'll go with the SEC, Independents, Mountain West, CUSA, Sun Belt and WAC on OFF PROMPTER!!!!
