Taylor’s Tuesday Tidbits, Top 25, College and Pro Picks
The Georgia – LSU game on Saturday was what college football in the Deep South is all about. Unrivaled passion, pageantry, talent, and atmosphere. Anyone that tells you that there is something better simply hasn’t experienced SEC football, or they’re living in denial.
Certainly the Dawgs are national title contenders but I still need to see Aaron Murray win a big game outside of Sanford Stadium. I don’t expect Knoxville to provide that test this Saturday, but Florida should on November 3rd in Jacksonville, and Alabama or LSU certainly will if UGA wins the SEC East and gets back to Atlanta.
53-9, 26-24 ATS
VT -7.5 vs UNC
Wake +9.5 vs State, State wins
MTSU +7.5 vs ECU, ECU wins
FSU -15 vs Maryland
Miami -4.5 vs Ga Tech
Clem -12.5 at Cuse
Ohio St -5.5 at N’western

I’ll keep this next part simple: the Carolina Panthers have no business losing to the Arizona Cardinals. Not any. Did you see Arizona’s offense against the Bucs on Sunday? Do you remember what the Panthers did to Carson Palmer last year? Arizona has no answer for the Cats front seven. The Panthers should win by two scores in the desert on Sunday.
Picks 42-21 on season
I’ll take KC, Carolina, Denver, and San Diego on the road, rest home teams.
