The picks, week 6

A few updates after today's call with Randy Edsall. Scott Lutrus will start at linebacker against Pitt. Zach Frazer will be the top backup to Cody Endres at quarterback. Aaron Bagsby will start at strong safety. Ryan Griffin won't start at tight end, but will play.

On to the picks.

Game 1: West Virginia (-10) over SYRACUSE - Matchup of ex-college basketball players turned quarterback. The real story should be this matchup of two of the most electrifying players in the Big East in WVU's Noel Devine and Syracuse's Mike Williams.

Game 2: VIRGINIA TECH (-13.5) over Boston College - Hoping the good news continues for Mark Herzlich.

Game 3: Connecticut (+8) over PITTSBURGH - Lutrus' return provides emotional lift to an already strong defense. Huskies will be tough to beat Saturday.

Game 4: Alabama (-5.5) over OLE MISS -

Game 5: TENNESSEE (-1.5) over Georgia -

Game 6: Georgia Tech (+3) over FLORIDA STATE - A Florida State trustee said he wanted Bobby Bowden removed as head coach at season's end. He must not pay much attention to the program. Bowden hasn't actually "coached" in five years.

Game 7: Oregon (-3.5) over UCLA - Everytime they show LeGarrette Blount's sucker punch of the Boise State player (now running on a continuous loop on ESPN) I think of the scene where McLovin gets KOed in "Superbad". Blount's recent letter of apology published in the Oregon student newspaper about as believable as Turtle hooking up with smoking UCLA co-eds on "Entourage".

Game 8: LOUISVILLE (pick'em) over Southern Miss - Two years ago, Louisville played in the Orange Bowl. Now, they aren't even favored at home against a middling Conference USA team. And the Southern Miss head coach should begin writing a newspaper column immediately. I'd read anything written by a reporter named Larry Fedora.

Game 9: Auburn (-3) over ARKANSAS -

Game 10: Florida (-7.5) over LSU - Did Tim Tebow get injured? Suprised ESPN isn't all over it. They always underplay stories like this. And LeGarrette Blount.

Game 11: OREGON STATE (-1) over Stanford -

Game 12: RUTGERS (-30) over Texas Southern - I believe Texas Southern is led by quarterback Paul Blake, defensive tackle Sinbad and kicker Kathy Ireland. Coach Ed "Straight Arrow" Gennaro has done a nice job rebuilding this once-proud program. Wait. I'm thinking of Texas State. Meh. Probably not much difference between them. And I am aware Texas State is a fictional program.
Game 13: YALE (-3) over Dartmouth - Bulldogs get back on track.
