Week off for Johnny last week as I was on vacation, I will say that I would have had a huge week, and since you cannot see any of my picks (since I did not publish an article) you will have to just take my word for it.

Things we learned last week:

  • There is a muddled mess in the rankings, teams like Oklahoma, Texas, and others look really good one week and really average the next
  • Nebraska’s red-shirt Freshman QB looked really good and the Huskers defense just cost Jake Locker a bunch of money
  • Michigan and Notre Dame have absolutely no defense


Miami (FL) @ Pittsburgh (-1.5) Big East battle. I like the canes. Miami 28 Pitt 21


Virginia Tech @ Boston College (-2.5) Virginia Tech has to start playing better one of these days. Va Tech 21 BC 17

Central Florida @ Kansas State (-7.5) Daniel Thomas for Heisman! K St 28 Central Fla 20
