Sorry, I missed the early games. Still crazy busy.

#1 Ohio State at Michigan State
Ohio at Illinois
#2 Florida at #11 Auburn
#4 Michigan at Penn State

My Picks:

OSU, Illinois, Auburn, and Michigan

I sure wish Florida had not lost. I was hoping enough quality teams remained unbeaten going into bowl selection making some schools scream that they should be considered for the title game. The ensuing controversy might make force some serious reconsideration of a playoff. Oh, well.

Nice Auburn pick, btw. Really disappointed with the Illini though. The Indiana game must have really hit them hard. Heard that practice this past week was not very emotional, but they should have realized that the Ohio game was another opportunity. It says a lot about this team when they knew they should have beat Indiana , but the Ohio loss will be a character builder for them. Mentally they know they are a better team which is a much better place than where they were last year at this time.

There’s still Purdue and NU.

Yeah, the BCS is a total joke. It’s all about money and nothing else. They can do a playoff with the top 4-8 teams and make it legit. Yeah, you’d still have some controversy over the top 4-8, but nothing like you have right now.

Emotion was my main reason for the Auburn pick. They got spanked by Arkansas, and would be out to make a statement against Florida. Plus, I don’t think Florida is all that. Their offense has been underachieving and their defense has been overachieving. They play in the best conference in the country, so I’ll give them their due, but I don’t think they are #2 or #3 good.

Illinois loses another close game, but I still think they are where we all expected them to be. Indiana beat Iowa this week and they are playing with some passion. They got their Coach back from a life-threatening injury and maybe they are playing out of themselves for him.

College sports are all about emotion, and I think this week was another testament to that.
