Week 14 pix by JR -- the Real Expert

I went 16-7 in Week 13. My losses were Alabama (over Auburn), Boise State (over Nevada), Penn State (over Michigan State), BYU (over Utah), Iowa (over Minnesota), Mississippi (over Mississippi State) and Pitt (over West Virginia).

My overall record is now 222-71, and I actually picked up a game on Chip Patterson, but still trail him in the overall standings by three games.

Overall standings for the Experts: Chip 226-57, Darst 224-69, me 222-71, Dodd 218-75, Jacobi 217-76 & Horowitz 213-80. With a week to go before the bowl season, it doesn’t look like I’ll successfully defend my title. But we’ll see.

Week 11 pix by JR -- the Real Expert

I went 14-7 in Week 10. I know. Not good. Not good at all.

I lost (bad) on Utah over TCU. The Horned Frogs have proved to me they’re one of the best teams in the country. I lost on Alabama (to LSU), Oklahoma (to Texas A&M), Missouri (to Texas Tech), South Carolina (to Arkansas), Florida State (to North Carolina) and Texas (to Kansas State).

Against the Experts,
I remain three back of Chip Patterson (177-48 overall), while Darst was the big mover of the week, going 16-5 and tying me with an overall mark of 174-51 The rest: Jacobi 170-55, Dodd 166-59 & Horowitz 160-65.

WEEK 10 HANDICAPPING ROUNDUP (1-4)
My deepest apologies … and glad I wasn’t in Vegas.

I thought for sure Oklahoma (closed at -5) would trounce Texas A&M. Guess not as Sooners lost 33-19. I liked Nebraska (closed at -6) over Texas Tech, which won 24-17.

Lost on unders of TCU 47, Utah 7 (closed at 51½) & Oklahoma State 55, Baylor 28 (closed at 72½ -- OK State led 24-0 at the half; Doh!).

My one correct pick was North Carolina +10½ at FSU. The Heels won 37-35.

Let's see how my eight suggested plays fare this week.
