2010 Pick 'Em Gauntlet: Week Three (With Week Two Recap)

New, 15 comments

This is why one should never bet on the Mountaineers.

In week one, I take Coastal Carolina, and while it was a push, they were never really threatening. In week two, I switch back to the Mountaineers, and Marshall looks like they were shot out of a cannon to start the game. Very quickly, all hope of covering was thrown out the window. Just winning the game was a moden miracle, so I guess I can't be too unhappy, considering this is for all of a Nike t-shirt (which is guaranteed to be awesome, by the way).

This week, it's back to picking against the Mountaineers. Not because I think we won't cover, but when I'm just the least bit unsure, you might as well and pick the enemy, that way you get some solace if we don't cover. So that's my gameplan this week. For all other picks, I consulted my power rankings, which is a combination of whether I like their jerseys or not and a flip of a coin. Don't let me down this week lucky nickel!
