2007 College Football Picks - Week 9

Another week, another Nebraska loss, then another post game press conference with Bill Callahan acting like someone stole his pudding. Maybe he'll just stop talking after this week, but I doubt it. He has an axe to grind. He wants to be a head coach so badly, but he's just not good enough to do it. Last time it was Al Davis' fault. Now it's Nebraska's fault.

If we could only see him for the genius he is.

Ah, on to the games!

  • Big 12 Games

  • Nebraska @ Texas

    Line:  Texas by 21

    Husker Mike:   In the Omaha paper, they're talking about Mack playing his reserves the third series... I think Mack might take it somewhat easy on us. I don't think he wants to rub things in; I think he respects us too much, "us" being the program.  Knowing that it comes back to haunt him later...
