I actually think Tech has enough ammunition to pull the win over an overrated Nebraska team, 35-33. I also think that the score predictions for the OU/UT game are way too close. After a close 1st half against Colorado before finally taking over in the 2nd half, I think Texas is prepared to pound OU, 42-7. I am also going to predict that K-State pulls off a win at home against A&M, 27-21.

Jesse is the only on here that really stands to make a move in the rankings this week! Don't know if it will be positive or negative though.

Tony Bandle 10 years, 3 months ago

Question: Phog Allen. "If you had been coach, you would have beaten North Carolina in 1957 with Wilt and wouldn't have needed any overtimes, correct?

CaramelMacchMan 10 years, 3 months ago

Question: D.J. Whetter. " Saw your golf swing at ACC this summer. Any plans on improving your golf swing ? On the other side, Kevin Romary has a good swing. any thoughts on how you might compete with him next season? "

Scott Smetana 10 years, 3 months ago

Matt.. best question.. Nice!

NU is overrated, but TT looks to be down.
I'm hoping our defense shows up, or it's upset city.

Dirk Medema 10 years, 3 months ago

It appears the fan's version of the "Kream Keegan" column has been replaced by all the other writers taking care of the job.

Michael Leiker 10 years, 3 months ago

LA - I like TTU tomorrow as well. I think they have just as good of a defense as Mizzou and sure as hell won't through the ball right at husker defenders 10 times in the second half. Tech rolls big.

Alan Halvorsen 10 years, 3 months ago

Jesse - You are dead on with my picks.....except the Oklahoma St. game. I like how you change the pace. I was starting to think there'd be a clean sweep across the board. Like everyone copied off each other or something.

TT quick passing game will neutralize Suh. TT will win this one. A & M, ISU, TU, KU, and TU are my other picks. I certainly want the Hawks and OU to be victorious to set up a great TV game for next week. I pray NU is overrated. Man, I don't want them to rise up again and be the dominant team in the North.

Joseph Kuebel 10 years, 3 months ago

With the exception of Jesse Newell Do any of you writers call yourselves men? Because the lack of fortitude or "bawlz" is quite rediculous...first off not a single one of you picked Texas to win by more than 10 points? Did you guys all pick the exact same teams and choose no upsets ? (again with the exception of jesse) Make it interesting, and take a risk!
