i think that's how most people end up winning their pools. . .by having everyone else lose.

I am the school.  Or a student of it, rather.  
 
 Did anybody chance to watch AU/Lehigh on ESPN?  Heartbreaking.  So close, so close...Maybe next year we'll finally break through and win the PL.

Michigan St. over Nevada
   and the over 130 on the Air Force game are probably the easiest shoe-ins for betting.
    I would take Syracuse as well, by 2? no problem.

i don't know. . .that princeton-style offense is tough to score alot of points against.  i mean, look at the over/under for the princeton/texas game, 119. . i think that's a better representation of the point total for the carolina/air force game.

Syracuse with only a two-point spread is a frickin steal.  I'd lay my tuition money on the Orangemen, if I wasn't on scholarship.

Offense:
 UNC  = 71.2 ppg
 Air Force = 57.3 ppg
 
 Total = 128.5
 
 Defense:
 UNC  = 75.2 ppg
 Air Force = 50.1 ppg
 
 Total = 125.3
 
 
 Take the under
