Week #8, The Other Half

By Amsinger - October 15, 2007


I'm semi-nervous heading into week #8. The SEC schedule is brutal this week. The Mountian West is always torture for me to forecast. The Pac-Ten is about as unpredictable as any league lately - especially with OREGON STATE nipping California!!!

Bottom line is I must focus. My confidence is down, I'm trying keep my spirits up but it's hard to do when I'm screwing up picks like Missouri over Oklahoma, North Carolina over South Carolina or Wisconsin over Penn State.

I must wake up and call them correctly - which is what I did in my previous blog (consisting of the ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten and MAC) and what I plan on doing in this post (consisting of CUSA, Independents, Mountain West, Pac-Ten, SEC, Sun Belt and WAC).

Let's get the party started with a league that was a breeze to predict last week on OFF PROMPTER!!!!
