Games are up!
Submit your picks HERE

I'll update with proper information tomorrow.

Day After Tomorrow Edit:

Sorry y'all - whatever totally-not-COVID sickness I've been fighting this week has totally kicked my ass.

For Week 5, congratulations to freefall, Jonathan, Brad, and nerdmagic for going 6-0. Also, I bet my NCSU-grad sister called in a favor for the Pack to take a dive to spite me. She would.

We have heuplek in the lead with 35 more of us within striking distance with a 6-0 week.

Let's Go!

lol, this took me a sec

Onward and upward

TEX (-6.5) @ OKLA
VT @ PITT (-14.5)
FSU @ #14 NCST (-3.5)
TA&M @ #1 BAMA (-24.5)
ORST (-7.5) @ STAN

Horns

Pack
Saban is going to beat the shit out of Jimbo on the 50 post game
Beavers
Fighting Hendon Hookers

TEX (-6.5) @ OKLA
VT @ PITT (-14.5) I had to do it, even going into the house of horrors that is Pitt.
FSU @ #14 NCST (-3.5) FSU's run game is legit
TA&M @ #1 BAMA (-24.5) Jimbo beats the spread, barely.
ORST (-7.5) @ STAN
#8 TENN (-2.5) @ #25 LSU Who can doubt a Hooker in charge?

Take VT to lose ATS and the under for every game the rest of the year and you could establish a decent 401K

The only betting with real money I do is in the stock market these days. But I agree, I picked Tech cause I think we actually get 150 yards rushing this game. I think we actually do some outside running and catch everybody off guard.

But if Pitts star RB is back from injury we won't win. He is that good.

Okay the A&M QB broke his hand officially, I am swapping. .

This is quite the slate this week.

Gimme Texas

Pitt has almost the offense UNC has and a better defense, we're in danger.

NCSt hasn't looked good against any team with a pulse. FSU has that.

Jimbo vs Saban in Saban's house? Roll Tide

Oregon St. Just to use this gif again

Hendon Hooker by a lot.

(add if applicable) /s

If you bet on Pitt to cover the spread at Heinz against VT and Louisville Mens hoops to beat VT anywhere for the next 20 years, you will be more ahead than if you bet Tyson to win in his prime. Easy money. Easy money.

IMO the only thing saving Vegas from making this a 3 score spread was Pitt's performance last week.

(add if applicable) /s

Saw Pitt play WVU in person. VT's offense will be lucky to score a touchdown, and Slovis will expose our terrible corners that play with awful technique and are slow to boot. Pitt large.

Oregon St ew. Not that unsurprised with Bama...actually moneylined FSU should have taken those points

(add if applicable) /s

tough week this week

TEX (-6.5) @ OKLA - I think Texas has the better resume and is the better team. Win by a TD
VT @ PITT (-14.5) - hate to do it, but I'm sticking to tradition. I think Pitt wins. I don't know if they win by 3 scores. Maybe.
FSU @ #14 NCST (-3.5) - These teams are pretty even on paper. I think NCST is slightly better and they have homefield. I think they win by a TD.
TA&M @ #1 BAMA (-24.5) - I very seldom pick the winner when the spread is this massive. But it's Bama and I think the Tammies are terrible this year. Plus, I imagine Saban is laser focused on schooling Jimbo.
ORST (-7.5) @ STAN - I know virtually nothing about either team. But Stanford's record is...bad. ORST by two scores.
#8 TENN (-2.5) @ #25 LSU - I think LSU and BKAKK are overrated. I think Tennessee is really dangerous with Hooker. I think they win big @ LSU

Onward and upward

Well, I got off to a strong start. Late games not looking good for me tho. Could be another 3-3 week

Onward and upward

Your not the only one

Be glad you didn't go 1-5 like me.......ugh.

My wife takes the kids and leaves the house while I watch my Hokie games.........nuff said

Texas -6.5
Pitt -14.5
NC St -3.5
aTm +24.5
Stanford +7.5
Tenn -2.5

BOTW: Barrel Aged Midnight Cactus from Dewey Beer. Their dark lager aged in sotol barrels for 8 months. Going to a bonfire Sat night, so this should be a perfect starter for that. I've got some other bottles that I'll prob take along as well, namely B*tches Brew from DFH that's a 2013.

@BuryHokie #ThanksFrank

Love me some Bitches Brew (and in general a lot of the older Dogfish beers that got either phased out or harder to find), it's been a while since I've had it.

They came out with the wood aged 6'ers, but feel like the base beer is slightly different as well.
It could scratch your itch if you can find it...

@BuryHokie #ThanksFrank

I'd be interested in the wood aged version. I need to get out more and visit bottle shops and make those connections, but I want to make the pilgrimage up to Milton one of these days to visit the source and see what beers are available.

It's pretty cool. And less than 10 minutes from Dewey Beer's new facility as well.

Win the week and nailed the tie breaker. Solid.

(add if applicable) /s

About time!!! It's been a rough year so far.
But I'll take it. And the beer was solid as well. Bonus.

Texas
I have never picked against the good guys before, but I did today... and I'd be more than happy to be wrong
NC State
aTm - something weird may happen
Oregon State
Tennessee (tiebreaker @ 41)

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

OU
HOKIES. I just can't bring myself to pick Pitt
NC State because it's not FSU
Roll Tide
Oregon State
Tenn. go Hooker. Wish we had a qb like him

Doesn't matter if it's cake or pie as long as it's chocolate.

Don't be ashamed, I did the same thing. Think positively if we only lose by 2 TD's we win against the spread.

I told him I’d crawl on my hands and knees to be the DL coach at Virginia Tech. Now, all of a sudden, I’m sitting in this chair and I told him I’d still crawl on my hands and knees to work here. I just want to be here.

TEX (-6.5) @ OKLA

VT @ PITT (-14.5): EDIT: After realizing the Pitt's defense is really strong and will probably bounce back after their embarrassing game against GT and our offense's inability to do anything until further shown, I'm going with Pitt b/c our O won't be able to do anything. I mean it couldn't do anything against one of the worst defense's in the ACC why should they be able to do anything against one of the strongest. Pitt's O is not UNC's but again our D will wear down. Won't be as bad as the UNC game but nonetheless...

FSU @ #14 NCST (-3.5): This one seems easy to me...but I don't know anything so there it is.

TA&M @ #1 BAMA (-24.5): EDIT: Bama steamrolls them at home.

ORST (-7.5) @ STAN: seems like a no-brainer

#8 TENN (-2.5) @ #25 LSU: This is another that seems like an easy pick. Give me the Hooker.

It's been one of those weeks, so I'm a little late to the game, but here we go:

TEX @ OKLA horns down. Honestly this is an asteroid game.
VT @ PITT Ketchup Kurse is lifted y'all. Go Tech Gooooo πŸ₯πŸ₯
FSU @ #14 NCST goACC I guess
TA&M @ #1 BAMA I just can't pick a team with a 24.5pt advantage, but Saban will probably still do it, just cuz.
ORST @ STAN BEaVers EaT TreEs
#8 TENN @ #25 LSU Hooker for Heisman. I hope people keep beating LSU and one day we'll never have to hear about Kelly ever again.

If you feel the leather in your hand let it rip.

Really Oklahoma? 49-0? Now I'm gonna have to flip to the hokies to risk trying to get one back as I figure most folks took Pitt.

Texas had been great when Ewers plays. OU legit hasn't been great at all this season. I was amazed that line was so small.... ditto for the Tenn spread

(add if applicable) /s

Seeing that you did indeed take pitt..I guess I made the right move switching to the hokies to try and keep you within arms reach.....hope it pays off.....

Dammit! Missed by 1.5 pts. Damn! Blew a shot at a chip shot field goal in the 1st half with a damn penalty on Clements. Missed an actual chip shot field goal in the second half.

Boy... Texas really put the peter to OU....

"Look at this... This is just spectacular.... These people are losing their minds"

Oof. Started off 3-0. Ended 0-3.

WooHoo. I am no longer dead last (among those participating every week). Fade me FTW.

That said, shame on anyone for picking against VT ever with no money on the line.

Doing better and better.

3-3. I didn't think Bama could cover a 24.5, then I heard A&M was using a backup QB. Silly me, I should have gone with my gut call.
