Thought I'd start things off with the Thursday night college football pick!
Boston College (+3) @ Va Tech
This game features "two" top 8 teams squaring off...I put two in "'s because Va Tech is not really a top 8 or 10 or maybe even 20 team for me. Their only quality win is over a two loss Clemson team and against their only really tough foe (LSU) they had no business being on the field. BC on the other hand has had one of the most efficient offenses in the country, lead by Heisman/#1 pick hopeful Matt Ryan. Tech has a good home field advantage, but give me the much better team WITH POINTS!!
A few random thoughts before we must adjourn...
Beckett should have been pulled after 5 innings in Game 1
Avery said in an interview with Norm on the Ticket that Jet Terry would be the 6th man this year... I love that idea
Bodog currently has Luis Scola as 75/1 to win the MVP...not a good bet
The Mavs o/u season win total is 56.5...have to be crazy to take the under
Watching the Stars game last weekend I got a new column idea - Crazy Sports Hair of the Week! The first winner is Ducks winger George Parros. He looks like the love child of Lawrence from Office Space and Earl
