"Of the approximately last ten thousand games in Division I-A (FBS if you feel compelled to change with every sneeze) college football, about 9000 which featured only D-I schools with no lower conferences home team won: 5,321 games (59.97%)
away team won: 3,552 games (40.03%)"

I ponder, study, meditate, cogitate, second-guess, enumerate, speculate, muse, codify, schematize, arrange, analyze, reason, fixate, obsess, fret, brood, assort, catalog, diagram, index, sort, tabulate and wonder if Mr. Billybud figured this out long ago and doesn't participate...and I can't even get 50% for the long haul. I could be up there with Spence who finds two minutes in his schedule to write something down or Derek who has to remember what city he is in if I would just go with the home team. How difficult is that?

It's true; 12 of the 20 games from this past weekend, the home team was the winner.

We can analyze your theory closer this week, from your own selections, seeing as how you only chose 4 visiting teams in your picks.

Georgia
FSU
Washington State
Boise State

Of the which, I would think fsu has the greatest percentage of failure. Georgia vs Auburn is a tilting scale for me. Washington State could have their hands full if Utah plays with as much confidence as they did against UCLA. And the Boise State/Colorado State match up, I would venture to say would have the same odds where ever this game would be played [and should be an entertaining watch].

A bunch of tossups this weekend. Ought'a be a fun Saturday ... heck, make that a fun week for that matter. Quite a few games to watch pre-weekend.

Weakness always prevails. Too much flack if not Boise, must support Derek, Mr. Billybud needs a friend and I just like Washington State. We will seek.

My method is simple. I pick the games where I think I know the teams. If I don't know the teams, I pick the favorite. Sometimes I watch too many analysts and I pick dumb upsets and it costs me. I would do better if I didn't listen to analysts.

Plenty of MACtion games again this week. That Friday tilt in the Pac 12 North tho. Wash/Stanford in Cali. Hoping and expecting Washington to win but it should be a good game. Maybe Pettis can add one to his TD record.

Did someone mention a blind dog?? He found something this week.

The real dawgs need to find something tomorrow.....

And I hope the Ibis know that leprechaun is on the menu tomorrow night.

If we win [somehow]; victory could taste like rainbows & gold.
