Today I’m most excited about the Auburn v Florida matchup.
Dantonio's seat is a little hotter tonight after Sparty not only loses but fails to cover. That would be a headline tomorrow and a Heisman / Justin Fields campaign debut.
Neal Brown's decision to take the West Virginia job, or WVU's decision if that's your take, comes into question tonight after a big loss to Texas (in spite of it being a road game.)
I was surfing around a little yesterday and decided to look at the game predictions from the two teams' 247 sites. Everyone of them was for the team they cover.
@TerryP How you see that Florida game going down?
AU already battle tested this year I expect them to win F Florida
Me too, I just wanted to make terry to hafta chew on that a bit.
Where is the game thread? It's already 10:30.
somebody start it!
Who usually starts the game threads?
Outside the Tigers I'm watching Iowa vs. Michigan....think Iowa wins that one. Auburn - Florida will be a good one, so will Mich. St. - Ohio St. I think Auburn beats Florida and Ohio St. likely makes a statement against Mich. St. Ohio St. has probably been the most consistent team this year so far.
Here's something I'll give ya back to chew on.
50/50 money on the two teams this morning with tickets for Auburn going at 4 to 1. The public is B.I.G. on Auburn. In fact, here's a quote from the "bookmakers world" on that game.
"The masses are definitely on Auburn, 100 percent.”
When the public is that much behind a team? That has ALL the makings for a lot of people to lose money today.
If you looked around this week you saw a lot of the prognosticators, as well as fans, call for Auburn big. Yet, the line moved about a point fluctuating between 2½ and 3½. Vegas, and the public, don't see eye to eye. That has ALL the makings for a lot of people to lose money today.
Personally, I played the under.
As to the straight up winner? I like Florida's run defense against Auburn's running attack. I like Florida's pass pro versus Auburn's passing defense.
Then again, I liked over 69½ in your game so what do I know?
