    The line I saw was actually 11, as of an hour or so ago. Heck, I'd have laid 14 in that one. Tough, tough place to play.

    Arkansas St. is -4, for what it's worth.

    Is Memphis that bad?

    Yes. They haven't beaten a decent D1a team in a long time.

    I just don't think they're that great this year even though they do have a big home field advantage. Didn't that blog from CSTV pick them to lose outright?

    I'm going to try something new this week - I'm going to give some reasoning and thought process on my picks so that when I lose, I'll at least not look like a moron. Alright, let's get this weekend started off the right way (unlike last week!):

    Tonight, I'm going with:

    Arkansas State -5 (I'm going to hold off a little while to see if I can get 4 1/2 again, but either way, I'm going with Ark. State); Reasoning - Memphis has one win over an FCS school since the beginning of LAST season. Ask Texas about Arkansas State.

    2-team Parlay: Boise State + Arkansas State (Both SU); Reasoning - this one appears to be an easy bet. I think both teams look good to win straight up at home.

    What I would avoid - a line bet in the Boise State/Southern Miss game; Reasoning - the line is running 10 1/2 - 11 after opening at 10. Southern Miss is always a good tough, defensive minded team. Boise is yet to impress this season. You never who will show up. The one constant in this game is the definate blue field advantage, uh, I mean home field advantage.

    The way things are going in college football, I'm about ready to work really hard to make my picks and then reverse them. Things have just been stupid for the past few weeks.

    I'm looking good on this parlay but I don't think Ark. St. is going to cover the spread.
