yeah nothign like giving the Whorns a sure win
mark my words Auburn will lose to either Georgia or Alabama

Cox just isn't mobile enough and Irons can't carry the load himself and Auburn's D line is just too small

Well, Boise needs to win out and make the top 12 in the BCS. Boise has Fresno tomorrow night in what shiould be a cake walk but as we all know, with Bosie you never know which defense is going to show up.

Also, believe it or not, I am worried about the San Jose State game in a few weeks.

32 bowl games? Sounds like plenty of 6-6 bowl-bound teams.

Time to give Wake a little more respect than this.

Maryland is another team that isn't getting the recognition they deserve. I feel they should be ranked. ACC is becoming quite a strong football conference, even with FSU and Miami having down years. Would you have believed me if I told you that the conference would have five ranked teams NOT INCLUDING FSU and Miami?

But it is not for a lack of recognition, at least in these bowl predictions. Maryland and Wake are slated to go to the bowl that fits their corresponding projected ACC finish. Being ranked in the top 25 would have nothing to do with what bowl they would get invited to.

I'm loving the projections for either FSU or Miami at the MPC Computers Bowl.

Wake is 7-1, but have you seen who they've played? Syracuse, UConn, Ole Miss and Liberty were OOC. in ACC play, they won against Duke (barely), UNC (barely) and a strangley up-and-down NC State team (tough to believe the same team that loses to Akron also beats BC and FSU - although that FSU loss is losing its luster). Seems like Wake is getting more credit for playing Clemson tough for three quarters.

I'm desperately hoping for Miami to go to the MPC Computers Bowl. My idiot of a brother in law has to go to every bowl game the 'Canes are in. He goes every year. I'm absolutely praying he has to try to make a trip to Boise. I'll be laughing my ass off.

All I know is that Wake has been money when it comes to gambling. I think I've bet them 4 times so far this year - all wins, although 1 was on a teaser.

BC has been great ATS.

Don't worry Bama will be leading going into the 4th quarter and it will probably go like this. Bama leads 13-10. 1st play of the 4th quarter is a crucial 4th and goal from the half yard line. Bama calls timeout. Shula decides to kick the field goal (no balls). Bama misses the 18 yard field goal. Auburn gets the ball at the 20. Then drives 80 yards over 9 mins off the clock and now leads 17-13. Shula still standing by his decision to go for the field goal even though it would have only given bama a 6 point lead (Mr. Conservative) now the offensive line goes to shit (mainly Chris Capps and allows back to back losses in the backfield to Ken (dancing with the stars) Darby. Now with a key 3rd and long (JPW is sacked for the 6th time (by whoever is lined up on Chris Capps) Bama punts and loses another game in the 4th quarter!

Man, it seems like every year the bowl names get lamer and lamer. The New Mexico Bowl? The Meineke Car Care Bowl? The San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl? And I see that the stately Fort Worth Bowl is now the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl. Oh well, at least everyone gets to be a winner! Wouldn't want to leave any mediocre team out of a bowl game, even if it's the Pioneer PureVision Las Vegas Bowl.

Both have GT Winning the ACC GT vs. WVU would be a good game, though I think they got the BCS#1 wrong

The only reason they have GT winning the ACC is because Clemson got that second conference loss.
