I’m sorry, I know. I’m being Mr. Week 2 Favorite Guy so far, but I can’t make the future, I can only see it. I’ve seen what New Mexico State has to offer twice now, and I don’t like it. Utah State is going to put up silly offensive numbers in its home opener.

I hate this pick. I’m making it, I’m holding my nose, and I’m making it. Kansas is too experienced to keep on being this miserable and this low a level. I know it just lost at home to Nicholls, and I know the line went down from Central Michigan -7 to -5, but the total dropped like a rock – almost six points. Take Kansas and the points … yuck.

Slice and dice it all you want, but UTEP lost its home opener with a new coaching staff to FCS Northern Arizona by 20. UNLV is at home and giving away just 23.5. Don’t think, just throw.

Is Hawaii that good, or is the Navy secondary that bad? The Memphis offense looked amazing with Arizona State QB transfer Brady White lighting up Mercer, but there’s still no run D on this Tiger team. Navy at home is getting points … okay.

East Carolina lost at home to North Carolina A&T. Again, sometimes it’s easy to overthink things. The Pirates will out-mistake the Tar Heels. There’s a reason the line went from North Carolina -14 to -17 – it’s still at least ten too light.

You’re going to sweat out Ohio State -35 over Rutgers. This is a solid Scarlet Knight team that will probably go bowling. It’s going to take a fourth quarter explosion to get there, but to be unprofessionally honest, after the performance against Oregon State, I want to be in on the fun if that happens again.

Temple is a whole lot better than it played in the loss to FCSer Villanova. Sticking with the original answer, though … still believing that Buffalo is going to win the MAC – or come close – take the five the Owls are giving up.

There’s a chance Georgia really is in that Alabama, Clemson, Oklahoma, Ohio State category and road games in hostile environments just don’t mean anything. There’s a chance the Dawgs roll into Columbia and destroy South Carolina with a breathtaking performance. There’s a chance this really is the game the USC program is now ready to win. After eight months of picking the Gamecocks … just be happy they’re getting ten at home.

Baylor might have figured it out. It was a 55-27 win over Abilene Christian, but that looked like an offense that’s about to roll. UTSA got destroyed by Arizona State, and it doesn’t appear to have the offensive skill to keep up a pace. The Bears should get up fast and stay there.

Arkansas State absolutely has an offense good enough to put up a few points on Alabama. Here’s the problem. Normally, the Crimson Tide would walk in, score their 38 points, play D, and get out without breathing hard – welcome to The Process. But with Jalen Hurts being more than just a normal No. 2 quarterback, that offense is still going to score when he’s in. 36 points are a whole lot to give away to a team with this much firepower, though, but … you know what to do.

You ready for this week’s trendy pick? Watch everyone jump on Colorado beating Nebraska in Lincoln. The line has already gone down to Huskers -3.5, and it might even get to three on gameday. Scott Frost’s team just doesn’t have a world of talent, and Buff QB Steven Montez is the real deal.

Over, over, over, over, over, over, over, over, over, boots-and-pants-and-boots-and-pants-and-boots-and-oonce-oonce-oonce-oonce … sorry. Listening to Daft Punk’s Alive 2007 while doing this – you know, before they turned awful and became a fixture on XM’s Mom Jean channel. Southern Miss, ULM over the 68.5. The wor-rld .. the wor-rld … the wor-rld …
– ULM vs. Southern Miss Game Preview & Prediction
There are a whole lot of big numbers being given out by a whole lot of strong teams this week. Ball State has an offense again, or enough of one to score a few late points to screw up Notre Dame -34.5. The Irish will get up early and coast. They won’t exactly turn it off, but … they’ll tone it down.
– Ball State vs. Notre Dame Game Preview & Prediction
That was a very, very good Northern Illinois team that Iowa just stopped cold. It took the second half to pull away, and this is a rivalry date against Iowa State, but the four isn’t a whole lot to give up. The Hawkeyes beat the possible MAC champ by 26, and now they get two of their top O linemen back.

How dare you insult the investment public with this? Maryland. -16. Bowling Green. Before someone figures this out, take it, and run away like you just stole something, because you did.
