Or, so I thought. Georgia Southern was slated to easily vanquish a seriously awful Texas State contingent in my Thursday night opener. Three TD spread or so. But two things happened. Southern doesn’t use the triple option anymore like I thought. And the Eagles escaped San Marcos with an embarrassingly difficult W by a couple of points in one of the most inept gridiron battles in decades.
But a win is a win yada yada yada. And along with the expected no problem victories of Alabama, Army, Iowa and Boston College, I garnered my first perfecto weekend of the campaign.
Even though the fix was on, with impunity I advise that I am without guilt. My confidence needed a boost. The home office had a hellhound on my trail.
5-0 for the weekend broke a month long losing streak. I’m now on the plus side for the season at 19-16.
Feeling somewhat more assured, this week’s slate is significantly more competitive. My cybergalactically renown at picking winners shall surely be confirmed.
