Week Four Blogger Picks

Here it is, our week three picks.  No blog exchange this week, partly because there are no good Stanford blogs, and partly because this game is going to be a blowout, so our guest is none other than my wife, Mrs. Dave.  She watches Duck games, but not really anything else, so her picks are largely without explanation.




Oregon State at Arizona State

Mrs. Dave:
PICK:  Oregon State

Nick: I found an interesting tidbit in the 9/20 Seattle P-I: "The Beavers haven't won at Arizona State since 1969, nearly a decade before ASU joined the Pac-10 (1978).  That's 15 defeats in a row"  


PICK: Arizona State

Dave: You know that I'm higher on ASU than most.  OS(U) doesn't have a quarterback, and are going out on the road.  Do you trust Canfield on the road?  Me neither..


PICK: Arizona State




Washington at UCLA

Mrs. Dave:
PICK: UCLA

Nick: I really want to pick against the Huskies here.  Really, I do.  But, after last week, that's just not going to happen.  Hey, did you know that Ted Bundy was a Husky?


PICK: (grudgingly)UW

Dave:  My hatred for Washington can't allow me to pick them, even when they're playing against a Karl Dorrell coached team.


PICK: UCLA




#17 Kentucky* at Arkansas

Mrs. Dave:
PICK: Kentucky

Nick: This is a good game to pick.  Both teams are coming off opposite ends of big games last week.  Arkansas suffered a tough loss last weekend, as they were unable to come all the way back from 21 down against Alabama, while Kentucky had a huge win against Louisville.  With apologies to Brooks, I don't think Kentucky comes out as sharp this week, and it'll costs them.


Pick: Arkansas

Dave: Arkansas is going to be bitter about the way they lost at Alabama last week.  McFadden and co. aren't going to let that happen at home.


Pick: Arkansas




#22 Georgia* at #15 Alabama*

Mrs. Dave:
PICK: Alabama

Nick: Something has to give this weekend.  Georgia comes in ranked 15th in the nation in total defense while Alabama ranks 25th in total offense.  Maybe it's the American League fan in me, but I like the offense.  Especially after the Tide's nice victory last weekend.


PICK: Alabama

Dave:  Georgia's offense isn't that good, and Alabama has the home field advantage.  Roll, Tide.


PICK: Alabama




Illinois at Indiana

Mrs. Dave:
PICK: Illinois

Nick:  This week's installment of the "Who Cares Game?"  At least I had a natural rooting interest last week in the Michigan-ND game.


PICK: Illinois

Dave: You know its not a great week when I choose a game like this.  Don't be fooled by Indiana's 3-0 cupcake filled record.  Illinois is the way better team.


PICK: Illinois

*I use the BlogPoll rankings on my blog.

GO DUCKS!!!
