    No picks yet, just a question. Does anyone know why or if this is not the truth, but I was told the BC/ Army game line has already moved 7 points. If true has to be an injury to a key player.

    Mark "Bo" Pelini was born 6 weeks premature. He designed a blitz to help him escape from his mother's uterus early.

    I like that pick. Can you post some of the other games this weekend and the lines on them?

    There are a couple of big time trap games out this week.

    Why is the Virginia GT line only 4? UC at 22.5 seems high to me. I'm staying away from both of these games...

    Marshall is terrible, they inspired ball for a half to hang on against WVU and then lost to like New Hampshire or Vermont or somebody like that.

    They lost to New Hamp. only lost to Miami by 28, and to WVU by 25.

    Why 22.5 to UC?

    There are some good opportunities this week, as well, but be careful. Like 98, I think some of these lines are BEGGING you to go one way, but not necessarily the correct way. I'm working on my picks for the weekend. Will try to post them later today. A few of the lines that are at least interesting, are:

    UK +7 at Arkansas
    Indiana +3 at home vs. Illinois
    Akron +3 at home vs. Kent State
    Temple +21 at Bowling Green (Temple is a little better this season)
    Navy -12 at home vs. Duke
    Air Force +11 at BYU
    Miami (OH) +14 at Colorado
    Maryland +3 1/2 at Wake Forest
    Baylor -3 1/2 at Buffalo
    Toledo +4 at home vs. Iowa State
    New Mexico St. +17 at Auburn
    Washington +7 at UCLA

    My picks will most likely come from this group, but still doing a little research.

    I'm in a pool where you pick 5 games against the spread every week in college and in the pros.

    My college picks are:

    UK + 6 1/2
    N. Texas + 6 1/2
    Toledo +4
    UConn + 9 1/2
    Indiana +3

    By the way thank you HSSRB for the site, I take between 7-10 dogs every week.

    They came out like they've never played a big game before and now they're buried.
