It’s mangled cliché desperation time. My back is against the driver’s seat. I don’t control my own destination and even tried taking it one game at a time before realizing now is not the time to pull any more punches. It’s time to step up to the plate, go for the whole enchilada and not look back because someone named “Guido” might be gaining on me. Since I hail from Pac 12 country, where the commissioner is named Scott, it is time for me to throw a “Hail Larry.” Time is running out on my first year of game picking and here I sit two games under .500. It’s fourth and long from my own two and now I need to go the whole nine yards. It’s all or nothing and win or go home with a Tommy-gun burst of point-spread spray guaranteed to go down your road and loosen your load. My games this week are South Florida-SMU, Wyoming-SD State, Utah-Oregon and Kansas State-Baylor. Plus five “over” bonus picks you can take to Wells Fargo. (Note: these picks are based on Thursday’s lines in USA Today). The rest of this article is available to subscribers only – to become a subscriber click here.
