I may even jump back in this year, haven't yet decided.


Gameday today!! You have week to get in our pool if you like. leafsfan just got back on board! Not sure about Lee's group.

Neb, what's the over/under Vegas line on Husker wins this year?

I can see anywhere from 6-6 to 8-4. Depending how the season unfolds, they may not win a game the last month.


I didn't go to Vegas this year. If the odds are anything like what I see the two places I look online Nebraska Ov7 -105, Un7 -125 - or Ov7 +105, Un7 -125.

Nebraska should be pretty interesting with Tanner Lee at QB. He was pretty good at Tulane, but limited by the surrounding personnel, atleast that is what we think. Then I really like Diaco at DC, a smooth switch to 3-4 will be key. Losing the top 2 LBs from last year and now they need to add an extra starter to that group. Sucks that Chris Jones got hurt.

Schedule is fairly tough considering they pull Ohio St and at Penn St from the East and travel to Eugene. Given the recent history vs Urban Meyer at Ohio St that game wouldn't appear winnable. Wisconsin and NW will be tough, as will Iowa, those aren't unwinnable though. Then there is the unexpected hiccup along the way....I think they can beat Penn St but I am not that high on the Nits. I think 8 or more is definitely attainable if they just play to potential and get a strong start.

Not sure I remember a school President talking pregame trash before!!

quote:


At FSU's Alumni Association's Kickoff luncheon Friday, the 73-year old Thrasher fired up the Seminoles' faithful.

"I shouldn't talk too much trash, but I think we're gonna beat Alabama pretty bad next week," Thrasher said. "I really do."

Georgia did go out and get some depth at DB position although young and unproven. From what I'm hearing out of Athens their is improvement along the O-line (it couldn't get any worse than last year). WR receiver position looks much better than last year some good depth there. On paper they should have a clear shot to Atlanta. But we are talking about Georgia football. Anything can happen. 10 starters return from a good defense so that should be a strong point..

Got into my college pick 'rm pool the other day. Can't believe it's almost that time.

If anyone wants to get in, I can do it. Just a $30 buy in. There's a weekly winner and an end of year one as well.

First weekend is going to be interesting!


Details? Are everyone's picks done on a website? I might be interested in playing.

We have 7 friendly faces in our yahoo ABB pick'em league, some other frequent players yet to sign up.


PM me your email address and I can forward the rules. Anyone else interested as well.

Detroit plays football now? Makes sense, they can't play baseball.

Tomorrow!!!

We have a "great bunch" in the pick'em. Still time for anyone else to sign up, first game for that is Friday.

How about all the Florida suspensions?!? RB Scarlet suspended today in that debit card thing. WR Calloway already out as part of what, 10 guys suspended for this game. Not all were key players, but a couple are. Figures to be a low scoring game, would be surprised if either team topped 20 pts.

S Caro vs NC St in Charlotte should be a pretty good game. NC St getting some hype this year, not sure how they possibly finish higher than 4th in that division though. Muschamp finally has an Offense, the D - well not so much.

Troy at Boise...watch out, just saying!

Wonder if a IAA team is going to beat an IA this week. Probably. YSU at Pitt, James Madison at ECU, E Was at T TEch, UNI at ISU? Wazzou has lost to a IAA two years in a row, they face Mont St.

Heads up in the yahoo pick'em, just for fairness to tell everyone, it looks like yahoo has two underdogs favored. You may want to look back over things, I mean it's only like a once in a decade type chance to take Alabama +7.5!!!!

Any time it says "off" that means just pick the straight up winner (don't leave it blank).

Enjoy the first Saturday of the season!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Michigans defense looked really good. Just need some better play from the QB.

To bad Western Michigan couldn't beat USC

How about Howard beating UNLV as a 45 point underdog? Largest underdog ever to win outright.

$100 money line on Howard to win would have paid $71,000.

Crazy comeback by UCLA. Looks like those two defenses will be giving up a ton of points this year. How do you bounce back from giving away a 34 point third quarter lead?

Hey now, great weekend so far of football and more football. Sucks living on the west coast of Canada. We got VTech game last night but no UCLA comeback game or USC close one the night before.

Did anyone here join AJ's pickem pool this year?

ROLL the QUACK!!! Nebraska better know how to play D this coming Sunday!!!

Yeah Nebraska at Oregon will be a good one!!

Game vs Ark St was entertaining, a little too close for comfort for those in the land of corn huh coot?

Where the heck is stratdal at?!?!...to be a UCLA fan and be so so low during that game not only to be brought back to life but served one of the best comebacks ever! Maybe he is still speechless.

Agree IPowrie, I finally have access to PAC 12 Network this year and was keeping an eye on that WM game. Broncos look like a team to be reckoned with again this year. Wish they could've upset those overrated soft Trojans.

How about those boys in blue...or I mean maize. Michigan D may just be better than last year, they looked pretty fast vs that SEC speed on O. Then again, Florida is never that good on O even when they are at full strength these days.

Bill's atop the yahoo pick'em. Some week! Not sure what to take away from the UK-SMiss game. Your thoughts appreciated if you are around. The OL and running game would be a disappointment, but hey, atleast Cats didn't lose to the Golden Eagles this year - probably because SMiss is down at QB compared to last year.

I know Vegas lines UNLV now, not sure they would've offered that money line or it was online only. Either way maybe check out what kind of wagers were made ,as in like any of the UNLV coaching staff!

Baylor is probably really happy since that Howard upset is taking attention away from Baylor losing to Liberty as a 31 or something dog. Liberty coached by Turner Gill.

I was there until the middle of the third. Totally disgusted by UCLA's performance (same crap as last season) and decided to leave. When we get to my truck and turned on the radio, it was 44-24 and Mrs. Strat said, "Watch the Bruins comeback since we leaving now." Well that's what happened. Congrats to the team and coaches for not giving up. It also helped that aTm's starting QB had to leave the game which helped UCLA defense the run better.

While I'm glad the Bruins came back, they still can't run the ball, OL sucks, and the defense still gives up big plays. I'm hoping the coaches decide to just put Josh in the shotgun full time, keep a back to help block and let him throw the ball. He's smart, throws quick, and has some decent receivers. It's the only way I see UCLA moving the chains.

Lots of Aggie fans and they were fun to talk shop with. I'm sure they had a very long flight home but I know the feeling. That's football.

GO BRUINS! BEAT THE WARRIORS!

Well, I wasn't at all surprised by the outcome as I had my $$$ on Arky State.

We played a base defense and didn't blitz at all until the final series. Hard to cover guys if the front three aren't putting any pressure on the QB. I've thought all along we're a 7-5 team. I do think it's a huge overreaction to make us +14 this weekend. Oregon will win but it'll be closer than that. 38-31 perhaps.

It doesn't help that right now I don't think we have the needed positional personnel for the switch to the 3-4.

I think I was about 12 or 13 when that happened.

But it's not like they play each other all the time.

Read about the Nebraska D vs Ark St, seemed Diaco wanted them to give up yards until the Red Zone, banking on them making a mistake to end their own drives. He says he was actually pleased with how the players performed except for some missed tackles that turned normal plays into big gainers.

The 14 pt spread vs Oregon is just ridiculous. Now Oregon may win by that or more, but to line it that way, as if we are dealing with the 2014 Mariotta led Ducks or something, and remember how bad that Oregon D has gotten? But that line got to 14 from a much lower opening number, I saw it at 10. Game of Year line had it -7. Just don't think we really know enough about either team to justify such a huge jump in the spread. Both offenses should do well, I'll give the edge to Oregon on O. And for Neb on D, I think their gameplan will be alot different this week. Playing bend-don't-break vs Oregon O will be bad for their health.
