........anyone got a coin I can borrow??? I have no idea how to pick some of these games, like Notre Dame vs Stanford or Washington State vs Utah or Ohio State vs Penn State or VaTech vs Duke or Kentucky vs South Carolina just to name a few. :lol:

Good job, Cane...... :wink:

........and btw, the team that kicks the most Field Goals in the West Virginia vs Texas Tech game, LOSES.

Just be glad I didn't do confidence points as a +1 point tie breaker.

Only a person who tortured small animals as a child would do something like that...... Hell, I’m sitting around now trying to figure out theses picks while watching replays of games on Xfinity and looking-up teams stats like UTEP and UTSA and comparing Washington States’ offense to Utah’s defense, thinking about the impact of the Bosa absence against the Penn State ‘White Out’ environment, asking myself is Kentucky for real. :lol:

Bosa being gone will hurt obviously, but poor play by the linebackers to this point will hurt worse. The defensive line is very good with or without Baby Bosa. They won't get to the QB as quick without him, but they will still make their presence known. The "White Out" impacts the offense worse than the defense, but bad offensive performance will put pressure on the defense. Ohio State has a good offense, but the offensive line hasn't been tested by a big boy defensive line yet and Haskins hasn't seen a lot of pressure yet. If Haskins makes many mistakes Ohio State will lose. The Buckeye D can hold up without Bosa, but they will be less likely to create turnovers than with him. The key is how the offensive line plays. If they open up holes for the running game and protect Haskins Ohio State won't have a problem. If they don't Penn State will take the game.

They’re either going to run the ball here or their going to pass it.
