this is Phil Steel's ("Northcoast Sports") 4 * winner this week.
He has OSU as his highest-rating college game, some of its match-ups/situational...but he points out how much better OSU's special teams are compared to Cal's. That should put OSU over the edge to cover.
"You win with people." - Woody Hayes
Cal has a worse defense than UCF and a banged up O-line. I think we easily cover 17 points.
Like UCF, you can't say they don't have athletes to compete in the way Miami was simply over whelmed the first quarter. I picked win, but not cover. I would love to be wrong and see the hammer dropped on them.
I went with cover.
13 troll votes for Cal with the upset, eh?
"Nom nom nom" - Brady Hoke
If these guys can beat UCF by 15 playing kind of half-assedly, they can beat Cal by more than 17. No problemo.
Class of 2010.
... playing kind of half-assedly...
That is an understatement. It felt like we were losing for most of the game only to see we were leading by quite a bit.
Hard to see us not scoring 40-50. Lots of injuries & our team will want to prove they're not sloppy.
You win with people.
