Kentucky

Congrats to the Kentucky Wildcats!  First win over Tennessee since 1984 and first at home since 1981.

Yes, we got jobbed on that 'fumble' call (clearly a fumble, UT clearly recovered) but we played awful the whole game and Kentucky wanted it a bit more.

1-26 in the last 27 years... Time to start a new string.

Name that Party

QUITMAN, GA (WALB) - 12 former Brooks County officials were indicted for voter fraud. The suspects are accused of illegally helping people vote by absentee ballot.(link)
Short story so I can't quote much of it; but the three (3) paragraphs seem to never mention the party of the offenders. Name that Party (TM) used to be a regular here and on Don Surber's blog

Football Picks of the Week

8-0 in the SEC last week (41-9, 82%), 3-1 T25/US (19-13, 59.4%)

SEC:

Tennessee travels to Kentucky: A bowl game is on the line for the Vols and #27 in the streak (wins by UT over KY); Bray should be closer to 100% and UT's defense is much better than Kentucky's: UT 31 - KY 13

#1 LSU vs #3 Arkansas: Huge matchup of prolific offense (Ark) vs prolific defense (LSU), This is at LSU so there's a huge edge right there, along with the fact that LSU's offense is 5x better than Arkansas' defense: LSU 27 - Ark 20

#2 Alabama at #24 Auburn: Semi-final game for the Tide in their quest to the National Title Game. Auburn won last year on Cam's greatest comeback, but he's no longer there and the Tigers have a lot of trouble stopping the run (uh oh for them, ala Trent): ALA 35 - AU 10

#13 Georgia at #23 Georgia Tech: Georgia will give up 300+ rushing yards to Tech and still win: UGA 28 - GT 25

Vanderbilt at Wake Forest: Bowl game elimination game for Vandy; after being pissed off all week for the way the UT game ended, they'll start out on fire; it won't last, but the lead will hold up: Vandy 21 - Wake 17

Florida State travels to Florida: Florida is a mess; their offense is in the skids and they can't stop the run: FSU 35 - UF 20

Ole Miss at Mississippi State: Nutts last game for Ole Miss; you'd think it would inspire them to send him out with a win; you'd think wrong: MSU 20 - Miss 7

#17 Clemson at #12 South Carolina: Clemson got bombed by NC State last week; SC wins, but they are missing their most important player (Lattimore): Since this game is at home, I'll give SC the advantage over the reeling Tigers: SC 20 - Clem 19

T25
#8 Houston stays unbeaten against a rough Tulsa team on the road;
#5 Virginia Tech takes the ACC Coastal (?) with a close win over Virginia
#9 Oklahoma makes Iowa State remember that it isn't that good;

US: Texas A&M takes out #24 Texas
