TB’s in Oxford where the Bama-Ole Miss game will be played this afternoon. My Bullies play at 11 30 so I’m gonna try and watch as much of that debacle as I can while getting in a bit of tailgaiting. Looks like the storm front that was supposed to sit on us until Tuesday has either moved on or broken up. The forecast is now only 10% chance of rain and a sunny day is expected. Bama nation has invaded Oxford in force. I can’t wait to immerse myself in a sea of Rebel-Rohtide humanity.
I REALLY like my picks this week. For some reason I have a sense of foreboding though. Maybe its because today is the last game that State has a chance to win to realistically salvage a chance at a six win season and I just don’t see it happening. The oddsmakers started State out a 3.5 point dog but they’ve moved to a 1.5 point fave. Unless the gamblers think Houston is point shaving, which I doubt, its just John Q. Public being wrong, in his usual fashion. For those of you seeking entertainment purposes only with your college football, a little nugget–the ‘dogs porous pass defense will be “bolstered” today with a true freshman making his first start at safety. Another true frosh made his first start at corner last week. Run heavy Georgia Tech proceeded to throw for some 250 yards.
Anyway, random thoughts on the games go below, if you are so inclined. I’ll be back later with a report on my day. My main goal is to spot our own gentleman of leisure, but I hear the lonesome loser will be on campus and his name changin cousin too.
