Presbyterian @ Wofford - Terriers by 34.5 points.
The Citadel @ Alabama - Tide by 51.5 points.
VMI @ ODU - Monarchs by 31 points.
Western Carolina @ North Carolina - Tar Heels by 30.5 points.
UTC @ South Carolina - Gamecocks by 31 points.
SAMFORD @ ETSU - Bulldogs by 8 points. :o What? I guess the bookies look at talent more than standings.

Others of Interest:

Not that I am hoping we lose, but a win in Johnson City would further add salt to the second half wound inflicted in Charleston last weekend.
BOE.

LOL, that is an interesting matchup. I am thinking KSU, but my prognosticating has been pretty bad this year.

Just FYI, of ETSU's 6 conference wins, they were favored in 2 of them. By your premise, must be a lot of bad coaches in the league I guess.

Maybe I'm missing something here, but I'm failing to understand how my comment about the bookies line has anything to do with a premise about any coaches at all.

I understood your comment after our line to mean that the bookies thought we were the more talented team. If that is the case, the bookies thought that 4 other teams were more talented than ETSU, yet they still lost to ETSU. Going with the theme here this week, I guess that means those 4 teams coaches lost those games too, right?

Maybe, but you are incorrect about that being "my premise". I had totally nothing in mind about our coach or any other coach. I offered a comment about the bookies' criteria for making us a favorite, which was honestly a surprise to me.
