Right when we thought this
past Saturday’s games would be boring, it turned out to be fun after
Alabama finally rolled after looking pedestrian in the first half to
win 38-10 over a feisty Western Kentucky Team who may end up winning their
conference. However, Ole Miss is up next.
Auburn looked good in their win
against Nobody-U. Up Next is conference play.
And right when I thought
Auburn’s defense was legit, I’m now wondering if it is a product of Clemson’s
offense. Before you get grumpy, let me explain. Auburn’s defense played lights
out against Clemson’s offense and then Clemson barely got by Troy 30-24.
Clemson’s offense rolled up only 414 total yards against Troy. TROY!!!! Not to
mention, Clemson’s defense gave up 386 yards. In fact Troy outrushed the Tigers

here’s the thing, never EVER put yourself in that position if you are the better
Michigan still got excited about Michigan blowing out a winless UCF
squad which has dropped 14 straight games.
Moving on to our Pick’ems
Well, that didn’t take long. Megan and Wendi have shuffled to
the bottom where they will stay for the remainder of the season. So that locks
up 7th and 8th place. The only thing we have to figure out now is who takes 1st
All of a sudden Mom is playing lights out hitting the most
points in week 2 with 41. It’s almost like she needs the money or something.
Maybe after getting into that little fender bender, this $80 will help pay for
Cindie and I are tied in the top spot at 83 points each but Mom,
Teddy, and Kim are not far behind.
Mike is in recovery mode still from
the 1st week and for now has dug his way out of the bottom into 6th place.
However, it’s still really early. The trick is to not fall behind too
