This week’s reason I should be the next Commissioner of the Big Ten …

If I was the Commissioner, I’d use the bully pulpit to make damn sure Penn State wasn’t ranked behind North Carolina in the AP Poll, demand Minnesota is in the Coaches Poll top 25 over a UCF team that lost at home to Tulsa, and no way, no how, no chance would I rest for a single solitary second until someone answered for why and how Ohio State is sixth in both polls.

The sure-thing, 100%, rock-solid lock, sell the house, sell the kids, no doubt about it picks of the century for this week

PICK SO FAR: 9-7 SU, 6-13 ATS

Last week was a punch in the gut.

Oklahoma over Iowa State … wrong. Mississippi State over Arkansas … double wrong. And it didn’t get any better from there.

So what’s the responsible thing to do? Supersize the thing again.

Fortunately, all these picks are correct.

– Louisville -4.5 over Georgia Tech
– Syracuse +2.5 over Duke
– Clemson -14 over Miami
– Texas +1.5 over Oklahoma
– Florida -6.5 over Texas A&M
– Kansas State +9.5 over TCU
– Florida Atlantic -2.5 over Southern Miss
– Coastal Carolina +7 over Louisiana

Bet on any of all these games at BetMGM. Please.

C.O.W. shameless gimmick item …

Sorry if this column sucked, it wasn’t my fault …

Police came in and kicked out the better blurbs – along with the SMU student section – for ignoring the coronavirus guidelines and safety protocols.
