The Smoking Musket Pick 'Em Gauntlet: Week 1

New, 5 comments

 

5th Year Senior is mad that they made fun of his favorite movie.  He might try and deny it, but the Kirsten Dunst poster on his wall says otherwise.

As in years past, we'll be running a weekly picks contest on the site.  Nothing too flashy, just a few bloggers battling to the bitter death trying to win a season long contest that has rhyme, reason, or prize.  And we'll be picking against the spread, because any nancy can take USC to beat San Jose State, but can you lay the 35 points?  That takes balls....but we've decided to let 5YS participate anyway.

Here we go:

Charley West (0-0 last week, 0-0 season)

  • Syracuse +7 vs. Minnesota
  • Alabama -6.5 vs. Virginia Tech (in Atlanta)
  • Cincinnati +6 @ Rutgers
  • UConn -3.5 @ Ohio
  • Western Michigan +13 @ Michigan

Note: Usually, we'll pick the WVU game against the spread.  Since there's no spread against Liberty, we'll skip this week.  Just know that I'm almost 100% sure we all think WVU is going to win.

5th Year Senior (0-0 last week, 0-0 season)

  • South Carolina +3.5 @ NC State
  • Oregon +3 @ Boise St.
