I went 18-6 last Saturday, adding to my 17-1 to make for a nice 35-7 record to start out the year, or a torrid 83.3% success rate.
Some of my flops were big ones - I missed the two big FBS upsets (picking Sacramento State to lose to Oregon State and Duke to lose to Richmond), while missing on a host of other FBS upsets that I went a little nuts with (Southeast Louisiana over Tulane? McNeese State over Kansas? James Madison over North Carolina?).

KNOXVILLE, Tn. — I made the three-hour trek from Blacksburg, Va and Virginia Tech to arrive at historic Neyland Stadium just in time for a major thunderstorm to move through campus.

Heavy rain also
AMES, IA--Well, I made the hard drive on I-80 then to I-35 to get to Ames. This is a matchup between the Panthers and Cyclones that could be an upset in my opinion.
Temperatures are at 71 degress but with 94% humidity so this non-climate controlled press box is a bit steamy.
This is the 27th time that these two schools have played with UNI winning just once, in 2007. ISU won 27-0 last year.
UNI brings a wealth of experience back with 10 of its top
BLACKSBURG, Va. — You have to wonder what is going on at one of the country's most renown technological colleges when the wireless Internet runs at a slower speed than dial-up.
Such is the problem at Virginia Tech on the opening Saturday of the college football season as the FCS-No. 13-ranked Hokies take on the No. 2 ranked team in FCS, Appalachian State.
To tell the truth, the problems of the Virginia Tech Internet — being blamed on too much usage by fans in the stands
