Yesterday, the day after announcing here and to my pool that I'm out of the winners' race, I went 4-0 with my worst set, thus imperiling my hope for last and $10 back.
Plus, Virginia Tech, who I picked in both sets but don't really care about, is leading late.

#1 SIL has no interest in football.
#2 is 7 years old.

Of course :roll: .

Fwiw, the regular season winner is 3rd worst after me. If there was ever doubt about the randomness of picking against the spread . . .

At least 13 Georgia players now out for Sugar Bowl, including six starters

I picked Georgia -7.5 > Baylor in both sets. This is now a good thing for me since my only money hope is being worst, but still . . .

The only game I cared about today was TX > UT, Austin hippies vs Mormons, a rout :thumbup: . Mon. was an aberration. I'm 2-3 in both my sets today. Still hanging on to last by 2 points and in a 2-way tie for 2nd worst.

1/1. Screw getting last, I care about 2 of the games.

Alabama -7 Michigan (2 points). Michigan in both sets, of course.
Auburn -7.5 Minnesota (2 points). Minnesota in both sets. Sorry, billy.pilgrim.

Wisconsin -2.5 Oregon (3 points). Splitting my picks. Shame they’re playing each other, but should be a good game.
Underdog Oregon will be better for my UD set, which is bad, but I can't root against the Ducks. Go good game!

Georgia will be missing 13, maybe 14 players. Most are starters or #2 in depth

program that’s undefeated vs Alabama 27
program with a lot of loses vs Alabama 23
:lol:

As almost always, I don't make predictions. Rather, I figure that the adjusted spread is better at that than I could ever be. So, when there's a spread I just pick my wishes.

Scanning the thread without actually counting I'm not sure that Gopher fans "mostly" picked Auburn, or that all of the people posting are really Gopher fans. Looks like there are some carpetbaggers like you :P . Anyhow, of the folks picking Auburn a large number are still saying that Minnesota will beat the spread. We'll see. If Auburn beats the spread, that just increases the odds of my getting $10 back. Win-win.

Yeah, I linked an article about that above. Since I don't like either team and since I'm now playing for worst, that's why I'm now rooting for Baylor.

Do you ever tire of being wrong. I'm no Gus fan, but he ran the show in 2010 when Auburn beat Clemson.
As Gene Chizik's puppet, never as a head coach. Chizik has a couple losses to Clemson as well as Gus Malzahn. Tough losses for Auburn vs a Dabo coached Clemson program. Sad that you keep bringing them up. When most folks hear the word Auburn this decade, the loss to Mickey Mouse really stands out.
Chizik sucked. Gus ran the offense that beat Clemson in 2010.

Most likely those losses to Clemson contributed to Chizik no longer being at Auburn. You're welcome.
Malzahn sucks as a head coach too, Mickey Mouse can vouch for that. :lol:

Plus, he kept the games close with FL, LSU and GA, and led them to scoring 48 vs Bama, more than any other team scored against it this year.
A SEC bird that Clemson roasted 38-3, muzzled the GA Dawgs at their house. But hey, Aubie kept it close with those Dawgs. :lol:

Ducks by a point, wow, a Rose Bowl classic.

I'm now in a 2-way tie for worst and am in solo 2nd worst.

Go Baylor +7.5. It won't change my status, but it will keep others from narrowing the gap or even seizing worst.

Oh no, screwed by my own flawed wisdom. I go 2-2 and 3-1 on the day. I'm now in a 3-way tie for 2nd worst, and am in solo 5th worst.

1-2:

Cincinnati -7 Boston College (2 points), 1500 ET. I split my picks. A Cincinnati win puts me back into a tie for worst, but I'm still okay with a Boston College win.

Tennessee -1.5 Indiana, 1900. I split my picks. I think a Tennessee win on top of the Cincinnati win then gives me solo worst.
