College Football Week Thirteen

Unlucky week thirteen! Or as I like to call it the week that Florida hit rock bottom and the week before Rivalry Week. A lot of teams decided to either take this week off or as we like to call it, play a crappy opponent at home to sell tickets and rest starters while picking up a win. Others decided to take the week off in another way and get beaten on their way to division titles (I’m looking at you Oregon and UCLA)

Anyway, I wasn’t as hyped for this week since the next two weeks we’ll get to watch games that matter to the teams and players a lot more as we head to Rivalry Week!  

With all apologies to Aaron Murray’s ACL… Let’s kick it off!

Games of the Week:

#17 Arizona State over #14 UCLA 38-33.
And out of seemingly nowhere, Arizona State has won the PAC-12 South. This game was pretty much a summary of UCLA’s season in that they just couldn’t quite put it all together. The Bruins were down 35-13 at half and came powering back in the third but just couldn’t overcome that first half deficit and ended up losing by five. Arizona State has to be feeling a sense of relief after seeing its offense fall asleep in the second half managing only 3 points and their special teams repeatedly getting gashed on punts and kicks.  ASU now really just has to regroup, stay healthy and beat Arizona next week before a meeting with Stanford in the PAC-12 Championship Game.

#20 Oklahoma over Kansas State 41-31
I really didn’t expect this game to be that close and when K-State took a 27-24 lead into the 4th quarter I thought they may have a chance at it. Unfortunately, OU scored 14 to open the 4th quarter and then held on to win it by 10. K-State really needed more than 24 rushing yards in the game and two interceptions killed a couple of drives. Oklahoma can be beaten and really hasn’t lived up to some of their expectations this year. But all will be forgotten in two weeks if they can get by Oklahoma State.

Honorable Mentions to:

Navy over San Jose State 58-52 in Triple OT

Duke over Wake Forest 28-21. A win for Duke Next week against North Carolina will give them 10 wins for the first time EVER!

Miss State’s 24-17 OT win over Arkansas. On the road, goes to OT, good win.

Boston College over Maryland 29-26. It wasn’t pretty, but it worked. Hail Mary!

Rivalry Watch!

#19 Wisconsin over #25 Minnesota 20-7
This year gave the Badgers 10 straight wins over the Gophers of Minnesota. Of course that means that Ol’ Paul Bunyan’s Axe once again resides in Wisconsin. Say what you want about the B1G, but I love these dumb little trophies they play for all the time. The Golden Gophers play in (and lose) a lot of trophy games every year and each time I just laugh a little inside; and a lot on the outside. Anyway, Wisconsin's defense held Minnesota's offense to just 185 total yards, and just 83 passing yards. That combined with Minnesota’s three turnovers led to a really long afternoon for the Gophers and a decade long losing streak against Wisconsin.

Upset of the Week:

Unranked Arizona over #5 Oregon 42-16
I couldn’t really decide whether to put this here or bring back the 'biggest loser' section for Oregon this week. Some of their players (DeAnthony Thomas) this past week were caught publicly saying that they didn’t want to play in the Rose Bowl because they had “been there won that.” Well guess what guys; now you don’t have to worry about ‘going there and playing that.’ I get that some of them want to go and win bigger championships and they want to motivate the team, but you’re the PAC-12. Every year you’re goal is to go and win the Rose Bowl. Now, after laying an egg in Tucson the Ducks go home needing to regroup. Too many mistakes in this game, turnovers, bad defense, and just a total lack of ability to even keep up with a much lesser opponent in Arizona.  

#10 Oklahoma State over #4 Baylor 49-17
What’s this? I’m going to talk about Baylor? Well ok… Look Baylor was and is still a bunch of smoke and mirrors. They led the nation in points for because of wins against: Wofford, Buffalo, UL Monroe, W. Virginia, K-State, Iowa State, Kansas, a falling Texas Tech team and Oklahoma. Out of that list, pick one team other than Oklahoma that is a “threat” to any legitimate top 25 team. Anyone? No? That’s because Baylor feasted on a weak ass schedule this year and rode it to a 9-0 start. OK-State just gave them some competition and that was that. The result you see is a 49-17 blowout loss to send them to 9-1. Now I’m not saying that Baylor’s offense is not entertaining, but as a team they’ve been playing pretender all year long. Oh, and as long as OK-State wins the battle of the state of OK two weeks from now… hello Big-XII Championship!

Honorable Mention to Georgia Southern going to the Swamp and taking out Florida 26-20. I really loved this. I couldn’t look away. Geo. So. went 0-3 passing all day. Let me repeat: Zero pass completions on only Three attempts. They said, “Hey Florida! We’re going to run the ball now. It’s either going to be an option left, an option right, or an option up the middle. Nothing else! Oh, and we’re even going to miss two extra points. Ok, you ready?” And Florida couldn’t stop it. An even better stat is that Florida paid them $550,000 to come play this game. Classless as always, as the Geo. So. guys gathered to sing their alma mater, the Florida PA announcer cranked up the volume on the stadium speakers to overpower the team. They sang on! The Eagles sang on! Hahahaha. Fuck Florida.

Beat Down of the Week: (A.K.A. The weekly Florida State discussion)

#11 South Carolina over Costal Carolina 70-10!
Cock-a-doodle-do! Connor Shaw and company put up 70 over a (now) 10-2 Costal Carolina team from the Big South Conference. It got ugly quick with Carolina putting up 28 in the first quarter and then pulling starters in the second quarter taking a 42-7 lead into the half. Carolina just wanted to get out healthy as they look to take the state next week against Clemson at home in Columbia.

For you math majors out there Carolina won by 60, which means that technically #2 Florida State over Idaho 80-14 was actually a bigger beat down. And it was. But really, I didn’t want to have to break down the numbers on that game or even talk about FSU this week. Alas, this section of the blog has been turned into just that.

Honorable mention to North Carolina for putting up 80 points on Old Dominion in an 80-20 victory.

Pillow Fight of the Week:

UConn for the Win! The Huskies avoided a winless season by going on the road and taking out Temple 28-21. In true American Conference style, Temple took a 21-0 lead into half time as the philosophy frat boys got good and sauced in the stands then forgot about defense and gave up 14 points in both the third and fourth quarters to lose it by seven. Better to have sucked and lost than to have never sucked at all? Either way, UConn got the winning TD off a 59 yard pick 6 with under 5 minutes to go and now sit at a mighty 1-9 but with this have pushed my pillow fight predictions to 9-2 on the year.

Next week we’re going with two teams so bad they aren’t even in conferences: 1-10 Idaho at 1-10 New Mexico State. Idaho as you know just got blown out by FSU while New Mexico State just got blown out by Florida Atlantic (55-10). So really this comes down to statistics which lean slightly towards NMState. In the battle of the mascots I like Idaho Vandals over State Aggies. So really it’s a coin toss. I’ll take the Aggies at home to take out the Vandals of Sucking and move to 2-10 on the year.

Player of the Week:

Navy QB Keenan Reynolds. It was Friday Night Lights in Navy’s 58-52 3OT win over San Jose State, but Reynolds went off for 7 rushing TDs on 36 carries for 240 yards and one passing TD. (only 4/6 for 46 yards out of the option attack). Reynolds becomes the fourth quarterback in Navy history to run for more than 1,000 yards and pass for more than 1,000 yards in the same season. He also became the ninth quarterback in NCAA history to score at least 20 rushing touchdowns. He has 26 on the season, one shy of tying the NCAA mark.

My Picks Go…

8-2! So pretty damned good this week. I did miss on Baylor and Oregon State but correctly picked LSU and Arizona State. I’ve got two weeks to go but so far I’ve realized that I should have been betting about 10 bucks a week this year and I probably would have made some good cash. And at 9-2 on the year in my pillow fights I can say that I’ve kept pace with Duke.

College Football Week Twelve

So yeah. That happened. That is the key word this week kids. THAT. Just that. The that that I’m referring to here of course is the deflection TD catch made by Auburn WR Nick Marshal with 25 seconds to play putting a dagger in the hearts of Georgia fans and proving that God indeed has sought to punish the Bulldogs this year. We’ll get back to THAT in a moment.

The other THAT happened just outside of Chicago when Michigan kicker Brendon Gibbons and his holder rushed onto the field and nailed a 44 yard FG as time literally expired to send the game to OT where Michigan would win it 27-19 proving that God indeed lets the sun shine on sinners in Michigan from time to time. Oh, and Texas decided to take a week off again, South Carolina found out Florida isn’t dead yet, and Duke took control of the ACC Coastal Division. THAT proves God indeed hates the ACC Costal and wishes to watch its coaches and fans cry as Duke takes on FSU in the ACC Championship Game. (Presented by Dr. Pepper) Seriously, Duke has trips to Wake and North Carolina between them and a title birth. The apocalypse comith.

With all apologies to whomever came up with all the bad alternate uniforms this week… Let’s kick it off.

Games of the Week:

#7 Auburn over #25 Georgia 43-38
Fuck THAT. Seriously, Georgia came storming back in this game from 20 points down and I wanted to THAT is bullshit! But THAT just happens sometimes. Who am I kidding? God hates Georgia this year.
believe that they were going to pull it off. And then, they did. Aaron Murray punched it in with his heart from 5 yards out and Georgia was on top 38-37. Then Auburn QB Nick Marshall quite literally threw the ball up for grabs and the Georgia defenders knocked it away from WR Nick Marshall downfield. Ballgame. But wait… somehow like the JFK “magic bullet theory” the ball deflected up and then downfield. The ball then landed in Marshall’s hands without him even knowing that it was there. Marshall then ran into the end zone giving Auburn a 43-38 victory.

#13 UCLA over Washington 41-31
Anyone ever heard of THAT Myles Jack kid from UCLA? Well he used to play linebacker. (and still does since he recorded 5 tackles in the game) This week he ran for 59 yards and 4 TDs pushing UCLA to an 8-2 record. They needed him to since Washington just kept hanging around on Friday night. UCLA led by ten at the half, the end of the third, and when it mattered at the end of the game; you just got the sense though that Washington was going to find a way to pull the upset. In the end they didn’t and UCLA just needs to get by Arizona State next week then USC to win the PAC-12 South.

Honorable mentions to:

#10 South Carolina surviving Florida 19-14

Maryland’s 27-24 OT win over Virginia Tech

Upset of the Week:

USC over #4 Stanford 20-17
THAT explosion you heard last night was the sound of Stanford’s season being blown to shit off the right foot of USC kicker Andre Heidari who drilled a 47 yarder with :19 to go putting the Trojans up by 3. Stanford is out and Oregon is back in control of the PAC-12 North. And, despite having such a weird season, USC is now sitting at 8-3 and looking to wreak some more havoc in two weeks against UCLA. Stanford meanwhile still has to survive Cal and Notre Dame and hope for a loss by Oregon at Arizona or at home to finish the year against the Beavers of Oregon State. The Pac-12 just got a whole lot weirder and Stanford just got caught in a classic trap game. They turned the ball over 3 times and USC defense really showed up as a unit on Saturday. There were some key plays that Stanford just could not convert on and USC refused to be put away.

Beat Down of the Week: (A.K.A. The weekly Florida State discussion)

#2 Florida State over Syracuse 59-3
Did you know THAT FSU is outscoring opponents 53-11 this year? With two games to go (Idaho at home then a trip to Florida) they may be on pace to set some kind of record. Poor Syracuse didn’t even sniff the end zone and only managed to avoid a shutout with a 32 yard FG with under eight minutes left in the game. Really the only thing that could derail Florida State is a huge upset from Florida or Jameis Winston’s potential arrest for something that allegedly happened two years ago.

Pillow Fight of the Week:

Kent State 24-6 over Miami (OH). Miami (OH); you mean 0 and 10 right? MAC rival Kent State shot them down with 7 points a quarter and sent Miami (oh shit) to 0-10 and into contention for a Pillow Fight Championship (seriously, they’re 126th in the country in points for and are being outscored 33-10) this year as we get closer to deciding the worst team in college football. Of course this winning pick takes me to 8-2 on the year and sends us to next week where…

I’ll take an American Conference Armageddon! 0-9 UConn travels to 1-9 Temple in a ‘somebody has to get a conference win this year’ matchup. I’ve ridden a hot streak this year picking dog mascots so I’ll stick with it and pick UConn to get a win on the road over the Owls of Temple. Judging by the statistics this is a bad pick, but Pillow Fights aren’t won by math geeks; they’re won by teams with heart and those who play in weak ass conferences.

Player of the Week:

Our man Kapri Bibbs, yes THAT Kapri Bibbs, from last week had another hell of a game (291yds and 6 TDs). However, I don’t like to go back-to-back on these so we’re giving it to: UCF WR J.J. Worton who had a career high 179 yards on 10 catches for 3 TDs on Saturday helping to move UCF to 8-1 and 5-0 in the American conference keeping them ahead of Louisville.  

My Picks Go…

6-4… again. Ok, so I really didn’t see Stanford losing, so THAT happened. Also, I picked Texas (dumbass), and really I didn’t think North Carolina had a shot. The fourth one? Yeah Duke. Duke won. Duke is 8-2. Let THAT sink in.

College Football week 11

Well Alabama won their annual street fight with LSU (no surprise there) and Oregon FSU is still in the title hunt as well. Really Stanford made the biggest play to get back in the conversation this weekend and no one was happier about that than the idol Buckeyes who got to sit at home and watch. Clemson is behind the eight ball, Missouri (really? Missouri?) needs to hope they land a miracle in the SEC Championship game and all Alabama has to do is survive Auburn in the Iron Bowl at the end of the year. So it comes down to Alabama’s world and everyone else just living in it. Oh yeah, also known as College Football. The Big-12 is still interesting. Not great, but interesting; and the PAC-12 just got a whole lot more interesting this weekend as well. The ACC is FSU’s to lose and the B1G is a cluster fuck that nobody really cares about since the Ohio State will just win a chess match against a bunch of checkers players.

Stop the presses! Duke beat NC State and has moved to 7-2 and with that the Blue Devils are guaranteed their first winning season since going 8-4 in 1994. Really? They had a winning season in 94?

With all apologies to Baylor who I’m still not talking about in this blog… Let’s kick it off.

Games of the Week:

#5 Stanford over #3 Oregon 26-20
Whoa! Hold on now! I thought it was Death, Taxes, and Oregon’s offense as the things we could count on
in this world. Stanford had other plans. Stanford had two things going for them: Defense and clock control. Oregon had the ball for less than 18 minutes in the game and Stanford’s Defense was huge keeping the Duck’s scoreless in the first half for the first time in 55 games. Oregon did come back though and with a blocked FG that turned into points followed by an onside kick recovery, then a quick score, Stanford’s lead was down to 6. However, more clock control and power running allowed them to end the game without giving Oregon another shot. This week made it two years in a row that Stanford has derailed the Duck’s season and they looked really good doing it too. Oh, and if Oregon is going to contend in the future, they MUST learn how to tackle on defense. Way too many yards after contact for Stanford players on Thursday night. That tree is still creepy.

#22 Arizona State over Utah 20-19
Staying in the PAC-12… ASU has had an interesting season and now thanks to a 13 point 4th quarter comeback, find themselves at 7-2 and in control of the PAC-12 South. They do still have to go to UCLA, but that is a winnable game and they may just be in the conversation when it comes time to play Stanford in the conference title game. However, The Sun Devils haven’t looked the best at times, and they have already lost to Stanford this year. Either way, Utah gave them all they could handle on Saturday and nearly came away with the upset.

Pittsburgh upsets #23Notre Dame 28-21
I’m starting to come around on ole Pitt. I like the way they play ball; gritty, coal mining style football. They should have beaten ND last year but a blown call allowed the Irish to escape and go on to be undefeated. This year they got some measure of revenge and played one hell of a second half to upset the Irish. Pitt really just controlled the clock, capitalized on some Notre Dame mistakes and then just played a clean game. They only went 3-13 on third downs which is not good, but Pitt isn’t a really good team. But, they are playing hard and on any given Saturday a team that plays hard and doesn’t turn the ball over has a chance.

Honorable Mentions to:

Nebraska’s 17-13 win against Michigan handing them their first home loss in the Brady Hoke era.

K-State’s 49-26 upset win over free falling #25 Texas Tech

Texas’ OT win over West Virginia. How is Texas still in this? Each week I think it’s over and they just hang around. Oh well. The corpse of Mac Brown must still have some life in it.

Upsets of the Week:

Virginia Tech over #11 Miami 42-24
After getting smacked down and beat up by FSU last week, Miami just didn’t have enough players or enough gas to compete with Virginia Tech for 60 minutes. Now that’s saying something since VT has laid some stinkers themselves this year but still find themselves at 7-3. Of course Miami didn’t help themselves very much either turning the ball over twice and managing only 28 rushing yards on the afternoon. Two of Miami’s TDs came on passes of over 80 yards so those can be chalked up to defensive miscues or even dumb luck. In the end, Miami now finds themselves with two ACC losses and trips to Duke and Pitt still to come. VT meanwhile just needs Georgia Tech to take a loss and they could be in control of the ACC Costal.

Vandy over Florida 34-17
You can say FU was banged up and this was a good shot for Vandy, but snapping a 22 game losing streak against the Gators and winning in Gainesville for the first time since 1945 is an upset. History alone should have gotten Florida the win. Will Must-Not-Be-A-Champ and crew turned the ball over 4 times on the afternoon and now find themselves with a 4-5 record with trips to Carolina and FSU still to come. I see their next appearance on the blog to come in the section below. On the flip side all is sunny in Nashville these days and Vandy is about to go to their third straight bowl game after beating both Georgia and Florida for the first time since pretty much forever.
Beat Down of the Week:

#2 Florida State over Wake Forest 59-3
Yeah, it needs to be said. Florida State is good. Are they Alabama good? Maybe. Maybe not. Are they Top 3 good? Oh yeah, without a doubt. Is Wake bad? To be sure. But Florida State has a really good team this year and barring a major upset from Syracuse, Idaho or Florida (really? Idaho?) they should coast to the ACC Championship Game and on to a National Championship bid. Oh and Wake had 7 turnovers in this game compared to just 8 first downs. FSU broke their previous home record for points scored (56) and tied a school record for INTs (6) in this game as well.

Pillow Fight of the Week:

North Dakota over Northern Colorado 24-21 for the win! I really don’t know what’s worse: the fact that North Dakota doesn’t have a mascot or the fact that their logo looks like a rip-off of Notre Dame’s. Either way they created a late turnover and then put up 7 points with under 3 to go for a big time Big Sky win. Of course more importantly it gets me to 7-2 on the year in the pillow fights.

Next week I had some ideas in mind until I saw it. The Golden Egg of pillow fights! Once again the MAC has brought us two teams with laughable records pitted against one another… wait for it… on a Wednesday night! Wednesday! They are so desperate to get people to watch they’re going to compete with reality TV and Modern Family. Anyway Miami (of Ohio) and their 0-9 record will travel to Kent State who is sporting a 2-8 mark coming off a 16-7 loss to Akron. Oh man… this is a tough pick. I’ll stick with the home team and take the Golden Flashes to gut out a win. Go Kent (not a) State!

Player of the Week:
Remember last week when I picked the Old Dominion QB as our player of the week? His name was Taylor Heinicke. Well this week he had another hell of a game throwing for 533 yards and 4 TDs with 20 rushing yards and a TD as well. I think he should be in the Heisman (Presented by Nissan) conversation; except for the fact that he plays for Old Dominion. Seriously though, go look at his numbers side by side with FSU QB and ESPN lover boy Jameis Winston. Anyway, I’m not giving this week to him. I’ll go with Colorado State RB Kapri Bibbs! Not only does Kapri have one hell of a cool name, he also had 4 TDs on Saturday off of 30 carries and 312 yards. Sick numbers Kapri.

Honorable Mention to: Georgia QB Aaron Murray who on Saturday set the all time SEC mark for touchdown passes at 115. He still has three games to play and should put that record out of reach for a few years. Behind him now are: Danny Wuerffel, Peyton Manning, Chris Leak and Tim Tebow. Not a bad list there when it comes to college QBs. Congrats Aaron!

My Picks Go…

6-4. Yeah I didn’t put a whole lot of time into this so I missed on: Miami, Texas Tech, Notre Dame and Michigan. I stand by those Michigan and TT picks though since both of those teams should have won their games. Why do I ever pick Notre Dame? If I ever do they are sure to lose. Oh well. 7-2 on the year for pillow fights still.

College Football Week Ten

Not a whole lot of competition on Saturday to speak of and not a whole lot of surprises either. OSU is good, FSU is good, Clemson is good, and Alabama and Oregon had Bye Weeks. That’s what we know. What we learned was that somehow Texas is still in the driver’s seat in the Big-12 and that Michigan State’s defense may have the only chance of stopping Ohio State when it comes time for the B1G Championship game.  Both Notre Dame and Nebraska proved that with a little faith in God you can win a football game and Southern Mississippi proved that there are bad football teams and then there’s 50 feet of crap and then there’s Southern Miss.

Games of the Week:

Nebraska escapes Northwestern 27-24
Just throw it up and pray! –or- Just knock it down! These are the two truisms of the Hail Mary.  But, at Nebraska, it seems like once a year they get a prayer answered in the end zone. Nebraska’s Freshman QB Long Name the 3rd looked good but made a few mistakes as well, but in the end did enough for the win. Poor Northwestern! They started the year 4-0 and ranked #19 and now find themselves 4-5 with 2 tough games coming up against Michigan and Michigan State.   

#18 Oklahoma State over #15 Texas Tech 52-34
Speaking of reeling… Texas tech may want to have a bit of a gut check this week. Two losses in a row with Baylor and Texas still left to play? Not good. This game started off fairly well but was really over by the third quarter. OKSU was pretty balanced on offense and just kept mixing up the attack. Texas Tech’s defense looks small and really got worn down in the second half.  The Cowboys are back in the conversation in the Big-12 but they also have Baylor, Texas, and Oklahoma left to play.

Honorable mention to:
West Virginia’s 30-27 OT win over TCU. The Horned Frogs scored 10 points in the final 4 minutes of regulation but just didn’t have anything in OT.

Rivalry Watch!

North Carolina over North Carolina State 27-19!
It’s like a pillow fight, but with tobacco spitting and hair pulling. Bad Football since 1894 and no trophy? Still, it was the best rivalry of the weekend if you ask me. (Meaning game; since FSU Miami was a joke.) NC State scored more times, but they were all field goals and North Carolina just kept getting TDs. As lame as that sounds, it was the story of the day. Long drives from NC and some key first downs vs. The Puppy Pack, two turnovers and some field goals.

Upset of the Week:

Boston College over Virginia Tech 34-27???
Was this really an upset? I mean VT did lose to Duke last week. Also, they turned the ball over four times. You can’t so that.

Beat Down of the Week:
So yeah this should go to Ohio State’s 56-0 smack down of Purdue, but that’s way too obvious. So instead we’ll go with #17 Northern Illinois’ 63-19 beat down of U Mass. NI Who? NIU! With a 9-0 record and one hell of an offense at this point, (44.2 points a game) NIU is making a play for the BCS this year. Well that is if they can stay undefeated and ahead of #16 Fresno State in the standings. Guess we’ll find out next week when Ball State comes to town and the MAC picture becomes a lot clearer.

Pillow Fight of the Week:

Georgia over Florida 23-20. God what an ugly game! Georgia was up 23-3 at half and rolling with the
return of Todd Gurley, but he gassed himself out after not playing for more than a month and was more or less useless in the second half along with the rest of the Georgia offense. Oh, and then the defense was as bad as it’s been all year. But, luckily the Dawgs were playing Florida and they keep shooting themselves in the foot week after week. This was a pillow fight among the big boys and man was it painful to watch. So Georgia goes to 5-3 and my pillow fight picks go to 6-2; making me pillow fight bowl eligible.

Next week, by request, we look to the Big Sky Conference. I’ll take (2-7) North Dakota over (1-8) Northern Colorado. So that means I’m taking a team without a mascot (formally the Fighting Sioux) over the Bears. Seriously, after being stripped of their “offensive” nickname, North Dakota can’t even pick a new one until 2015 by state law. Weird. Anyway, the Big Sky sure isn’t a powerhouse conference, and this matchup is a classic pillow fight in the making.

Player of the Week:

Taylor Heinicke from Old Dominion! Who? Yeah that guy. Anyway, he went: 28 for 35 for 293 yards and 6 TDs! Also he ran the ball for 33 yards giving the Monarchs a big 6th win on the year. Now they aren’t in any conference, so they’re going Bowling at the end of the year.

Biggest Loser:

The Southern Miss Golden Eagles. These guys are fucking bad! In 2011 they won Conference USA with a 12-2 record and then won the Hawaii Bowl over Nevada 24-17. This year they are 0-8 and have been out scored 357 to 102! That’s: 45-13. They’re so bad, not even Brett Favre is writing checks this year. Wow. That is one shitty football team.

My Picks Go…
7-3 on the week thanks to Tech schools (Virginia and Texas) both of whom lost winnable games, oh and I backed NC State for some reason against North Carolina.  6-2 on the year in Pillow Fights as well so I’m riding about a 78% accuracy mark on the year.
