Or will Pitt lose to WM this weekend? WM is a 16 point dog so it would pay between 5 and 7 to 1 for a WM win.

While losing to Western Michigan at home right after beating TN on the road would be quintessentially Pitt, I like us this week. The game I am really worried about is GT. We should go into that game 4-0 with a showdown in Blacksburg looming the next week. It would be just like us to overlook GT and lose looking ahead to the Hokies.

Kickoff at 7:30ish tonight. Should tell us a lot about both UCF and Ole Miss. And maybe Louisville, too.

Which just goes to show how meaningless Week 2 rankings are. They don't really start to make sense until at least Week 8 or 9.

I think you’re right. VT is ranked because it played UNC at Lane on the first week. Now it’s VT’s turn to play in a hostile environment.

RE: ACC Pick 'Em Contest Week 3
WVa (sorry Chokies)
MSU (I think Miami is dead this year)
Pitt (most over performing in the ACC this year)
BC
Clemson
NW (Duke sucks)
UNC (No way Carolina fails to show up)
ND
BYU
Cincy
Colorado (You need to days to aclimate to the altitude)
Charlotte
Penn State (Somehow, someway, Auburn blows this game)

40 and 35 (State should be able to score 21 on Furman, I guess - depends on if they bother to show up)

I need to add WF

I theorized that only if I made a snide comment would VT have a chance to win. They have lost every single game I have attended on their behalf.

Maybe you should just sit home for this one. As a matter of fact stay home for all of them. We still appreciate your support.

I had never heard that term before 2011. In a fall class I had a student who was, very proud of her Clemson Tigers. She seemed hell bent to rub it in not once but twice that year. After both wins she showed up to class in a Clemson tee shirt with no bra and this girl needed a bra in order to protect anyone who might have walked too close to the side of her. She was from Spartanburg and after the first loss I commented that she must be very happy with the score from the past weekend and that's when she used the term Chokies. By the end of the Sugar Bowl I completely understood.

Back in the Big East days we used to say, "When the leaves go brown, the Hokies go down." VT was known for fast starts and slow finishes. Except 1999 when they went to the Championship game.

We're off like a herd of turtles. Of the 17 entries, 6 correctly picked UL. The most unanimous pick was BYU. Only copycat picked ASU. 15 of 17 picked Clemson and Cincinnati.

That must be the secret for Louisville - as soon as I give up on them, they win a big game. I'm through with the Cardinals!

(I hope that works)

If saying something disparaging will make the Hokies win, then by all means, piss us all off!
