Playing with a running clock since 2003
Last Week: 4-1 Straight Up (4-1 vs. Spread)
Season: 24-6 / 17-13
Hopefully you’ve all awoken from your hibernation after last week’s snooze-fest of Big 12/College Football offerings. Fortunately for us all Week 5 offers some much more attractive contests, including 4 “show-me” games in the Big 12. The Big 12 is a big, murky mess and a lot of teams enter the last weekend of September with something to prove. I want to see what Oklahoma State is really made of during a conference road trip. I want to see if Iowa State can win a football game. I want to see if TCU can kill the sloppiness. And I want to understand what the hell Bob Stoops has at OU this season.
Since I don’t have much faith in Big 12 teams yet this year, I also don’t have much faith in these picks. But I didn’t have faith in last week’s picks, either, and I finished 4-1. So I’ve got that going for me, which is nice.
Let’s go Around the Big 12.
