College Picks

  1. Any football handicappers on this forum?

    Rankings are out. If anyone is intersted in handicapping games here this fall, lets get a thread going on that when the season starts....lot more fun losing 50 bucks on a game than losing a grand on Lehman Brothers long because an economic number came out and the bid dropped 50 cents before you could hit it. :p

    Atleast on college games you can blame the stupid quarterback for throwing it to the wrong team or something.

    Texas is ranked 2? Yeah right Oklahoma will crush them! :p

  2. As long as Simms is QB at tu, OU will win. He's choked in every big game he's played in at tu.

    OU needs to work on the offensive line to protect better than last year and the defense should be on par with last years squad. Can't wait to see the Red River Shootout and three straight.
