Unfortunately, I am unable to participate in this week's Razorpod. However, the picks and some commentary are too important to be missed. The picks:
Tennessee 27 Auburn 17
Cal 21 USC 13
Georgia 33 LSU 28
Oklahoma 31 Miami 21
Arkansas 38 Texas A&M 27
Sleeper: Maryland 23 Clemson 20
Apparently, ESPN's College Gameday is going to Chestnut Hill for this week's Boston College/Florida State game. Huh? There is no tangible football reason for this decision. Both teams are unranked. Florida State is 2-2 with an impressive victory at BYU, a tough home loss to Miami, an uninspired comeback win over Jacksonville State, and a home loss to South Florida last week. BC is 3-1 with two wins coming against Northeastern and Kent State, a butt-kicking at the hands of Clemson, followed by last week's OT win over Wake Forest. Neither team has a superstar or Heisman contender. Neither team will sniff the BCS. What possible reason could there be for Gameday passing on OU/Miami, Cal/USC, LSU/Georgia, or Michigan/Michigan State?
