Triangle Prophets, Week 6

Every Friday, a group of fearless webmasters and sports fanatics from around the Triangle will gather to predict five college football games against the spread. Every Duke, Carolina, and N.C. State game will be featured, along with a smattering of high profile non-Triangle games. As the season goes along, we’ll keep the standings updated and see who emerges as the one true prophet. Make your predictions in the comment section. Each week, we’ll feature any and all commenters who pick all 5 games correctly.

It was a huge week for myself and the Devil Wolf, as our 4.5-point finishes (the NC State game was a push) vaulted us into a tie for the lead with William the Wise. Nate and Tar Heel Fan Blog dropped into second, a point off the lead, where Jim Young joined with 3.5 points. It was another tough week for James Henderson, who continues to prop up the standings from below. And, in the ongoing saga of things Jim Young sends in with this picks comes this:

After watching the season premier of The League this morning (yep, that’s when I have time to watch shows that are inappropriate for the rest of my family) I’ve decided that Shane reminds me more than a little bit of Dirty Randy.

That’s all I had to share. I have no idea what picks I’m going to make.

This Week’s Games

N.C STATE (-11) vs. Central Michigan
UNC (-13) vs. Louisville
Oklahoma (-10.5) vs. Texas (neutral field)
Pittsburgh (-7) at RUTGERS
Missouri (-3.5) at KANSAS STATE

The Picks

Will

This seems like a brutal week. I’m legitimately worried I’ll go 0/5 this week. Haven’t felt like that yet.

NCSU State SHOULD cover this, but since they’re not playing a IAA team, it’s anyone’s guess…
UNC
– Can’t pick against the Heels
Texas
– I really want to take Oklahoma, but 10.5 is a lot of points. I think OK gets the win, but Texas keeps it close.
Pitt
– A) I guess I should start pulling for Pitt since they’re going be an ACC team now. B) I really don’t like Rutgers
K State
Another tough pick, but I think K State wins this straight up

Devil Wolf

State
UNC
Texas
Pitt
Mizzou

Would have picked an ACC team in the last game but didn’t have an option.

Me

State
UNC
Oklahoma
Rutgers
Missouri

Tar Heel Fan Blog

NCSU
UNC
Oklahoma
Pitt
Kansas St.

Nate

NC STATE over Central Michigan. Even State can’t blow an 11-point line.
Louisville to cover over UNC, though I think Carolina wins (again, my jinx)
Oklahoma over Texas
Pitt over RUTGERS. Rutgers is bad. I’ve never seen Pitt.
Missouri over KSU.

If I go 2-3 this week I’ll be happy.

Commenter Pick of the Week!

None of the commenters were up to the dizzying heights DevilWolf and I reached, so you know what? Nobody gets a mention. A standard of excellence must be maintained! Make your picks in the comments if you think you’ve got the goods.
