Big Game Pick - Take Gators & The Points

On paper, Ohio State has more talent. Troy Smith is a better quarterback than Chris Leak. Ted Ginn is a better big play guy than anyone on Florida.

But the Gators have an intangible ... they know how to win in tough games even when overmatched. In the SEC Championship, Arkansas had more talent but Florida played smarter. The Gators have a coach - Urban Meyer - who excels at team preparation and who will undoubtedly have a few tricks up his sleeve.

Ohio State appears to tighten up in the big games. They played poorly down the strectch when they hung on to beat Michigan. In what should have been an easy game against Illinois, they played a nervous fourth quarter.

The spread favors the Buckeyes by seven - I say take the points and the Gators.

  • Dumbshit Macswain is at it again: Applying his bassackwards logic to football. For example:

    "But the Gators have an intangible ... they know how to win in tough games even when overmatched." How about Auburn? Forgot or chose to ignore that one didn't you pardner.

    "The Gators have a coach - Urban Meyer - who excels at team preparation and who will undoubtedly have a few tricks up his sleeve." Wow, a college football coach with a few tricks up his sleeve. Ol" "Urban" must be the first one to come up with such deviousness.

    "In what should have been an easy game against Illinois, they played a nervous fourth quarter." What was that fourth quarter so nervous about, Macstupid?

    I could go on and on and on and on, but why bother: You never get it.

    Let me give all four of Macstupid's readers a little advice: Go the opposite of Macstupid and take OSU big time.

  • Ahhh ... a grammar troll.

    But, bearshaft, I'll give you credit on at least having the guts to make a pick. Here's a prediction though: if OSU soesn't beat the spread, we won't be seeing ol' bearshaft around. But if OSU covers, he'll be here a crowin'.

  • bearshaft writes a lot like Rolly big toe, who apparently's got gangrene.

    nevertheless, go heavy on OSU. Mac's endorsement of the gators is the kiss of death.

  • Lil double standard there bearshaft. Your MO is usually make no pick and crow about the ones I got wrong while ignoring the ones I got right.

    You finally stepped and made a pick of your own and .... OOOUUUCCCHHH!!!!
