Last week Fro and Padilla and I put in our picks to post on the blog and follow each week during the season, and I dropped the ball when some work stuff came up Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. Then all of a sudden last weekend, a close family friend who had been fighting cancer passed away and I had to make a last minute trip to San Angelo for a funeral on Wednesday and I almost dropped the ball again on the football picks.
Luckily, Fro and Padilla liked the idea so much that they still sent me their picks today, so we'll get started a week late. I could go back and post last week's picks, too, but I can't find the lines after the fact.
Here goes (the rules are that you can pick any five games with published lines, college or pro... Mike and I will be picking so pro games, but Fro has some strange aversion to pro football, so he is sticking with the college games...)
Hawaii -27.5 over LOUISIANA TECH OKLAHOMA STATE -24 over Florida Atlantic PENN STATE -17.5 over Notre Dame Tennessee +6.5 over JACKSONVILLE Atlanta +3 over MINNESOTA
LSU -12.5 over Virginia Tech TEXAS TECH -24 over Tex El Paso BOSTON COLLEGE -13.5 over North Car State Denver -3 over BUFFALO Pittsburgh -4.5 over CLEVELAND
LSU -12.5 over Virginia Tech PENN STATE -17.5 over Notre Dame (I think Craig might have been on it earlier in the week because his email mentioned 16 points) AUBURN -6.5 over South Florida Orgeon +7 over MICHIGAN GEORGIA -5.5 over South Carolina (this one is now -3, so maybe he's looking to even out?)
That's all I got. I will be in town all week next week, I hope, and next week's posts will be more substantive.
