OT: Six Pick Week 8, 2020 Edition

David Buxton with the perfect week, 6-0, last week after we weren't even sure we'd be able to submit our picks. Congrats!!!! Ropp32 has a 5 point lead, then there's a log jam with 4 points between 2nd and 21st.

Let's see if we can rebound after last week. Poor performances all around.

Michigan State @ Michigan (-24.5)
Nothing like getting your in-state rivalry game out of the way in your second week, amiright?! Do the fighting khakis have a 2.5 touchdown victory in them? Can Sparty rebound from a loss to Rutgers??? There's enough fire in Harbaugh's eyes to cover this one. Give me the Wolverines

LSU @ Auburn (+2.5)
Both of them have 2 losses in the conference by the end of October. Which one will have three? Weather should be perfect for fall football down south, and just nice enough for LSU to cover the 2.5 points, even on the road.

Notre Dame @ Georgia Tech (+19.5)
The Irish are sitting pretty in the top 5, but have underwhelmed with Vegas going 2-3 ATS. BUT, GT is 2-4 ATS. Which one gets the W for Vegas this weekend? My feeling is ND is overrated...the pollsters want them to be better. Welp, I'm taking the Rambling Wreck.

Texas @ Oklahoma State (-3.5)
While the Red River Shootout was one for the ages, I feel like the Pokes are gonna destroy the Horns this weekend. This is a top 5 team, not the Irish. Give me OKState. BIG.

Ohio State @ Penn State (+11.5)
Game Day? Here? After what happened last weekend? Not gonna address it? Ok........ Well, the Buckeyes are going to Happy Valley, for a nighttime game, with Game Day. The Bucks have too much for the Lions to control. While it will look cool on tv until about 815, the game will be a run away in anOSU's favor.

North Carolina @ Virginia (+6.5)
4-1 vs 1-4. One is the loneliest number...and it will stay lonely for each one. I know it's on the road, but less than a touchdown favorite? That's ridiculous. Give me the heels, all day this Halloween. There will be some people dressed as football players with crossed knives on the side of their hats, asking for candy by halftime.

Rundown....
Michigan State @ Michigan (-24.5)
LSU @ Auburn (+2.5)
Notre Dame @ Georgia Tech (+19.5)
Texas @ Oklahoma State (-3.5)
Ohio State @ Penn State (+11.5)
North Carolina @ Virginia (+6.5)

BEER of the Week.
I done messed up last week. Had the wrong week number in the title to start off. Didn't have a beer plan. CBS wasn't allowing people to pick games throughout the days leading up to kickoff. And it all went to ish Saturday afternoon. This week...I have some of this in the fridge!!! Let's get things squared away.

That settles it, it's your fault.

I do have my beer plan this week. And got the number right. It's headed in the right direction. Just need the other part of the equation to come through.

I was just kidding. I appreciate that Pick Six is happening. Also, I'm not gonna rag on a fellow golfer.

All good!!!!! I need a little prodding occasionally.

-You're not really gonna hit it there are you?
-Why? Would that be wrong?
-Uh, on a scale of eagle to triple bogey, this has double snowman written all over it!
-Well, shizzz, give me the 3 wood then. Gotta hit it far enough up there to keep it to single digits then.

It's an unwritten law that it's my lunch pail. I've issued the challenge. If someone outworks me, they can get it.

Michigan State @ Michigan (-24.5) - I think Michigan wins but not by this much
LSU @ Auburn (+2.5) - home team wins
Notre Dame @ Georgia Tech (+19.5) - GT hasn't gotten any respect. I don't think they'll win but I think they keep it closer than expected
Texas @ Oklahoma State (-3.5) - home team again
Ohio State @ Penn State (+11.5) - I don't think OSU will win big but I really want them to
North Carolina @ Virginia (+6.5) - honestly surprised this line is so low. Feels like easy money

well, 4-2 is my best week of the season. Puts me at 18-48. Not great but at least there's nothing on the line for me
