A huge favorite finally paid off for us last night, as Boise put the hurting which so many of us expected on Arizona State as Dennis Erickson exits stage left. The Over/Under was fairly split, but two garbage time TD's in the final 3 minutes pushed it comfortably into Over status. We shaved a good chunk of games off our loss-heavy record, moving to less than 300 games under .500. Small steps I guess

In Leaderboard news, well...it just keeps getting stranger. The Coin Flip (I suppose I should rename it to The Coin Phlip) retains its one game margin at 10-2 over two others. The first is the Bleacher Report, which has its author sitting at 9-3. The only actual RMN poster within a game of the lead is mizzou2396. There is a small pack at 8-4 beyond him. Perhaps the best news is both of our 0'fers broke out last night with at least one win, with Mythryl now occupying the last place by themself at 1-11. Hey..as we learned from the Braggin Rights game last night, as win is a win.

From a very quick glance, I would say the majority play of the next game is Southern Miss -6 and the Under. Do keep in mind this game is not until Saturday night however, with the next game after that being our own. Bowl season slows down over Christmas before getting nuts on the 27th.

As always, and if you can stand the pain, your picks and all the contest info can be found at the very bottom of the data sheet, which is available at this link.
