Well guys, we made it through another tough week. I would say sorry about the Ohio State loss but since I'm a Minnesota fan I have no sympathy (and I picked Purdue for the spread). I watched that whole game and Purdue played one of the best games I've seen this year. Wish my Buffs had played that well, but at least they covered the spread for all 3 of us.

These games are getting tougher for the spread every week. Hell, they're getting tougher just for the wins. This top 4 for the playoffs is just a joke. The only one you'd get no argument for is Bama and if you look at their record there is not one top team except Texas A&M.

The only game to eliminate someone from the top is Florida vs Georgia who just may be meeting their Waterloo.

I'm not even sorry about that Ohio State loss. No execution on offense & Defense is average on it's best day. Unless they make a miraculous change on defense I wouldn't want to see them in the playoffs against Bama as they will get throttled but the experts say if Ohio State wins out they'll make the playoffs.

And I totally agree these pics are her getting so tough.

But what I really am enjoying is there's only 17 points dividing all three of us after last night and it's been 9 weeks now so it looks like everybody's going to have a shot to win all the way till the end this year and that makes it more fun.

And let me add that around here Kentucky football is getting a lot of Buzz...... if they could somehow beat Georgia they would win the SEC East. Now I don't think they're a big Slugger like Bama, or Notre Dame or even Ohio State but I think they've made great strides at that program.

Rosco, I'm with you on Kentucky. It's nice to see a usual underdog like them really get it around. I will really root for them to get to the finals.

My Buffs need to hire the KU coach as our present one is really going down hill. When you have a home team leading 31 to 3 at half against a 1-6 team and then lose the game, you really have to look at the coach.

Well guys are we really going to have a good week?

The Kentucky versus Georgia is my game of the week!!! I would love to see Kentucky beat Georgia as that is kind of like a David versus Goliath battle but we know David won in the Bible, maybe Kentucky will do a little praying before they play 😁
Thought that was one heck of a finish the way Kentucky beat Missouri on the last play of the game and had to do it over twice. So you just never know like the old saying "that's why they play the game"

And lsilvest I am floored that Colorado has lost 3 in a row and of course like you mentioned the way they lost that last one!
I truly thought they were good enough to be at worst a one loss team right now and like you said they could need a better coach because there is not really any good teams in that big 12 and they should be steamrolling right now.
I think the team they are playing this week made an excellent hire at head coach with Kevin Sumter who I think will put Arizona as a team to beat in the Pac-12 as I believe will happen at Arizona State with Her Edwards.

Good luck to your guys' teams this week cuz I think Auburn will win at home.
I did pick against Colorado and it's probably because I sit here and watched Arizona play very well last week beating Oregon.

I also think if we are going to see Alabama lose in the regular season it's going to be this week I know it's extremely doubtful but I think LSU is the only team on their schedule that has the defense to beat them.

I'm surprised that USC hasn't got back to their good old ways of winning yet I'm sure they'll turn it around soon.

But if you come in here and start rooting for Bama I'm going to harass you on social media 🤣

Well Im convinced of 3 things after today's games...

1. Ohio State is not a playoff team even though winning out will likely get them there, they have worst Defense I've seen under Urban Meyer.

2. Kentucky is no longer a practice week on opponents schedule's, cosch has them going in right direction despite loss to Georgia today.

3. Alabama is so far ahead of the field this year it's ridiculous.
Notre Dame who imo is 2nd best team as they have solid offense but not enough Defense to hang with Bama.

Love Clemson's head coach but I just think his team is not one little bit battle-tested this season as the ACC to me looks like the weakest conference in the country as far as the power conferences so I don't think they're wins are impressive at all and they got lucky against Syracuse as I watched the whole game.

I think Alabama is at minimum a 2 TD favorite over any team in the country right now .
While I would not bet against them I'll sure be rooting for somebody pulling off an upset miracle & beat them, and it would take a miracle.

A wild-card that I think could slide right into the playoffs is Washington State as I'm watching them again tonight & they have struggled with Cal but they're finding a way to win the game and it'd be nice to see new blood in the playoffs.

My top 4 now ..
1 Alabama
2 Notre Dame
3 Clemson
4 Washington State

Well, guys it's not getting any easier. Hats off to WarEagle who kicked our butts this week. Still a pretty close contest which looks like we will all be at the last week looking for a win.

Bama is still the king and rosco's 4 picks look solid right now. Three we need to watch out for are Syracuse, Northwestern and UCF (who really needs a big game to get any rating). The balance now boils down to coaching as top players are not going to sit around on the bench when they can be seen on most teams anymore.

Anyway, I did enjoy Veteran's day.

Have a good week guys and let me know about your secrets to picks as I can take all the help I can get

It's a couple days late but Happy veterans Day to you lsilvest, we appreciate the service.

I don't think you want no pic secrets from me lol. It's nobody's fault but mine but it seems like when I sit and watch all them college football talk shows it screws up my mind when I pick but at the same time I enjoy watching them but it seems like I do better when I don't.

I definitely agree with you about that Syracuse they had Clemson and give it away so Notre Dame better bring their A-game this weekend.

I made such a stupid mistake!
I got on there Monday night and they had the games on already and I went to pick them and I noticed a bunch of them had no line so stupid me went ahead and picked and rated them and thought I'd come back about Thursday and look it over to see what's changed and I forgot and it really hurt me and as bad as I'm picking anyways I didn't need that.

My Top 4
Alabama
Notre Dame
Washington State
Clemson

Don't give up Rosco, another tough week ahead and the split is not that overwhelming. I just got lucky last week and ended up with my best week of the season.
