Time flies when you're having fun - (Wait...were we having fun?) it's time for Week 7
You guys all know the rules by now, but in case you don't: Post your picks for the 6 ACC matchups this week down in the comments. (Remember, we are picking against the spread; if you pick Maryland in the UVA-Maryland matchup, you actually picking them to "cover the spread" and win by more than 7 points, and you're also a terrible person). Here's a link to last week's competition.
At the end of the season, the three commenters with the best records win "Keep Calm and Streak the Lawn" t-shirts! You need to pick 80% of games to qualify for that coveted prize.
Once again, there's no Thursday night ACC game this week, so the deadline for picks is noon on Saturday.
Here are our week 6 picks and comments:
|Game||Tiki||Paul||Will||Matt T.||Caroline||Tim||Brian L||Brian S||Sully|
|BC @ Clemson (-24.5)||Clemson||Clemson||Clemson||Clemson||Clemson||BC||Clemson||Clemson||Clemson by 30+|
|Pitt @ VT (-9)||VT||VPISU||VPISU||VT||Pitt||VT||VT||Pitt||VT|
|Navy @ Duke (-3)||Duke||Navy||Navy||Duke||Navy||Duke||Navy||Duke||Navy|
|GT @ BYU (-7)||GT||BYU||BYU||BYU||BYU||BYU||BYU||BYU||BYU|
|Syracuse @ NCSU (-6.5)||NCSU||Syracuse||NCSU||NCSU||NCSU||NCSU||NCSU||NCSU||NCSU|
|UVA @ Maryland (-7)||MD||UVa||UVa?||Maryland||UVa||Maryland :(||UVA :(||UVA||Welp....MD|
And here's the STL consensus, along with our game thoughts:
|BC @ Clemson (-24.5)||Clemson||BC's lone road game was a 35-7 loss to a bad USC team. Clemson is a lot better than USC. -PG|
|Pitt @ VT (-9)||VT||The Hokies have appared to shake off their early season struggles with impressive wins over GT and UNC. Can they do to Pitt what UVA did...while actually scoring points?|
|Navy @ Duke (-3)||Navy||Thank goodness that the Midshipman are allowed to play through the government shutdown so they can embarass the ACC even more!|
|GT @ BYU (-7)||BYU||BYU wins...but we probably want GT to win for RPI reasons, since we may play both, but have more mutual opponents with GT and...oh, wrong sport|
|Syracuse @ NCSU (-6.5)||NCSU||A little skittish about picking NCSU after an awful letdown last week, but I'll give the points, since they're back at home this time|
|UVA @ Maryland (-7)||UVA||Well, this wasn't the most overwhelming "consensus" ever. Picking Maryland to beat UVA is disgusting, guys.|
Finally, here are your standings to date. Good luck all!
