       September 30, 2005

    I can't believe Wisconsin is 4-0. Of course, the so-called "crappy" Big Ten has four other undefeated teams (Indiana, Michigan State, Penn State & Minnesota) so Wisconsin isn't that special...yet.

    Last week I only missed one game, so the pressure is on.

    Michigan at #11 Michigan State: At this point I think Michigan State is the 2nd best team in the conference (behind only Ohio State). However, sometimes even the good teams lose. I expect Michigan to come out pissed for losing last week. Will that be enough? I hope so. The pick: Michigan.

    Indiana at #17 Wisconsin: Yes, my Badgers are undefeated, but even I don't think they're world beaters. I think this is a trap game. Wisconsin will be coming down off of a great high after beating Michigan and they may not be mentally prepared to face an Indiana team that's probably a little better than they realize. This week, I just have to have faith in the coaching staff. The pick: Wisconsin because in Barry I trust.

    #1 USC at #14 Arizona State: I want to pick Arizona State. I caught part of their game against LSU and was really impressed by their QB, Sam Keller. I think he'll light up the scoreboard against USC. On the other hand, ASU's own defense gave it up at the end of that LSU game. They can't let up like that and expect to beat USC. The pick: reluctantly, USC.

    #5 Florida at #15 Alabama: Isn't it about time that someone ends the Florida/Tennessee/LSU domination of the SEC? I think so. This will be a tight game, but the home field will make the difference. The pick: Alabama.

    #13 Notre Dame at #22 Purdue: I'm still trying to figure out how Purdue lost to Minnesota. Heh, Purdue's still trying to figure it out too. Notre Dame, on the other hand, is probably still trying to figure out how in the world they're ranked #13. Hint, it's name recognition. I picture a game where both teams try desperately to give it away. Who will fail (and by fail, I mean win)? The pick: Purdue.

    Kinda. I just figure that USC will not lose when I think they'll lose. They'll do it some other time when no one else expects it.

    Don't forget IU has won the last 2 meetings. Im surprised its an 18 point spread, its very tempting to jump on the IU line. I met coach Hoeppner twice this summer and Im just hoping he can keep it close. On the other hand, our defense hasn't been able to stop anyone running the ball this year.

    the WI/IN game certainly isn't going to be an 18 point game. i'd take that bet in a heartbeat

    I don't know IU has played down some pretty bad games, I don't know if they have just played down to their opponents level or they are just that bad.

    Damn, Kris - I hope picking Bama isn't the kiss of death!

    At least this week I don't have to worry about Bama and the point spread. Us longtime (nongambling) Bama fans know that we rarely cover the point spread (I know at one point in the 1990s, when we were something like 38-6 in the regular season, we were more like 6-38 against the spread. Too many Alabamans don't follow Jimmy The Greek's advice to "never bet on the alma mater"!)

    I like Bama and I hope they beat Florida, if only to make the "Urban Meyer is a genius" talk stop. But I don't see them beating the Gators.

    Arizona State will give USC a game.

    Michigan/MSU game....MSU's TD to tie it at 31... was a fumble. Should've been overturned. WOULD'VE been overturned in Ann Arbor.

    And I'm for Michigan State.
