Back from Bizzaro World
Something has changed in the last 72 hours and my sources now tell me Norries Wilson's tenure as head coach will indeed end at the close of the season.
I apologize for having everyone ride the emotional rollercoaster here, but when you're as insignificant to the program as I am you have to rely on the sometimes shifting information you get from the people who actually have power and influence.
Let the search for the best replacement begin.
Week 7 Picks
A lousy half point in the Brown-Cornell point spread stopped me from getting a perfect week last Saturday!
But the improvement is refreshing.
Here's how I did in each game.
For Penn (pick 'em) vs. Yale I wrote:
"... at Franklin Field, I think Coach Bagnoli will have his Quakers ready to play and beat Yale."
Actual Final Score: Penn 37 Yale 25
1-0 Straight Up, 1-0 Against the Spread
For Princeton +30 1/2 at Harvard I wrote:
"Harvard will win big, but not by 30 points or more."
Actual Final Score: Harvard 56 Princeton 39
2-0 SU, 2-0 ATS
And for the fateful Brown -11 1/2 at Cornell I wrote:
"Watch the Brown offense score in bunches on the fast Schoelkopf field turf. Take the Bears and lay the points."
Actual Final Score: Brown 35 Cornell 24
2-0 SU, 2-1 ATS
OVERALL 2011 RECORD: 23-7 SU, 16-14 ATS.
On to this week's games...
Penn +12 at Brown
I like Brown to win this game by about a touchdown, no more. The weather could be a factor in slowing down the Bear scoring machine. Penn's running game will test Brown, but Estes and his boys will get it done.
Cornell -6 at Princeton
Princeton's big stretch game was last week at Harvard. Now they will come back to Earth. Take Cornell and lay the points,
Dartmouth +24 at Harvard
I don't like big spreads in bad weather games. The height of the storm could be blowing at gametime. The Crimson will probably grab this win by 11 to 14 points.
