Attempt 5 at being ELA
« on: October 10, 2018, 08:47:14 AM »
I'm doing OK, but really I'm just mostly going with favorites, who should win of course.

Florida at Vandy - This one kind of sounds like it has upset potential, but I don't see how Vandy scores against the Gator D, and I think even an off day by the Gator O will be adequate, so Florida 23  Vandy 6.

Tennessee at Auburn - Can the Vols snatch a conference win?  You already know the answer.  Auburn 27  Tenn 13.

GotW UGA at LSU - Conflicted about this one, but the road-home advantage is probably not sufficient here.  UGA has a good game finally and hold on late 30-20.  I'm not sure about this one of course.

A&M at USCe - Another interesting game.  A&M is a decent team, but so is USCe.  Comes down to turnovers, as usual, USCe hangs on 24-20.

Mizzou at Bama - Holy cow.  Mizzou will score some points, but not enough, Bama 52  Mizzou 27, Saban goes mad.

Ole Miss at Arky - Arky is due, which does not mean they will win, but they will, Arky 34  Ole Miss 26

Agree with most, but you under estimate A&M. SC will not beat A&M.

That game looks to be close either way, to me.

I brought my dog with me today to a bar to watch the game. Sat down with her on the barstool next to me. Next to her was an USC fan, wearing the cock hat and everything.

On that first kickoff we ran it back for a touchdown. My dog sat up on the barstool leaped in the air, did a backflip, and landed back down on the barstool. The USC fan looked amazed.

As we know, a few minutes later the Aggies scored another TD. My dog again leaped into the air, did a perfect backflip, and landed back squarely on the barstool.

The USC fan was blown away. He said, "I can't believe your dog does that every time your team scores!"

I said, "just wait until the game ends."

The game goes on and my dog continues to do this every time the Aggies score. As we run out the clock to zero my dog sees the Aggies win.

She sits up on the barstool and leaps many feet in the air, spinning crazily, her nubbly tail just brushes the ceiling at the apex of her jump, as she continues spinning to stick the landing with all four feet landing squarely on the barstool.

"That's amazing!" says the USC fan. "I really didn't like this game, but it was worth it just to see your dog do that when she saw your team win." "But I have just one question," said the USC fan, "what does your dog do when the Aggies lose and USC wins?"

"I don't know," said I, "my dog is only five years old."

BTW I stole this joke from another board.  It was supposed to be about A&M/Arkansas but it works almost as well for USC.  

I think they'll give us a good game but we're a little bit ahead of them right now.

The outcome of that game won't surprise me either way of course.  I'd guess, again, that it comes down to turnovers and ST play.

I really want to pull the handle on a Gamecock upset but... just can't.  

Elsewise, I think it's on point, including the Arkansas victory!

The only other thing I'm tempted to add is that I have a funny feeling injuries may be a lowlight of what I expect to be a brutal LSU/UGA game.

This is looking like some upsets in the offing.

Tennessee played hard today, and get the win against a bit of a reeling auburn team... Theyve been improving but I didnt expect the win.

Not a good week at all for my picks.  Not a good week for the Dawg offense either.  I'm sure LSU had something to do with that.

I only got two "right", Alabama and Florida over Vandy.  That's pretty bad, worse than a clever cat.

Glad to get out of there with a win. Usc did a great job hanging in there even though we doubled their TOP. That 6 minute drive near the end of the game brought tears to my eye and we even got a td out of it.
