Hey. When you’re wrong, you’re wrong.
And man was I wrong about last week’s Kentucky-Mississippi State game. The Wildcats were 5-1 coming in (and they should have been 6-0) but their run defense was vastly overrated. I picked them to win straight up. That final, in case you missed it was Mississippi State 45, Kentucky 7.
We ended up a pedestrian 3-3 last week. The other losers for your humble scribe were Louisville winning straight up against Florida State (31-28) and Miami beating Syracuse (27-19) but failing to cover the 14.
But I did have Alabama covering against Tennessee (plus 34 ½), Auburn covering the 15 ½ against a bad Arkansas team, and LSU easily covering 7 ½ against Ole Miss.
So after eight weeks we are 22-26 against the spread. Here’s hoping for better things as we close out the month of October.
