We’re on the worst stretch we’ve ever been through, in what is our fourth year of these picks. Things were already trending backwards, and a 2–9 weekend last week didn’t help matters, as it pushed us back to 32–41–2 on the year.
Let’s be honest. That’s atrocious.
And since I’m such a kind, gracious, honest guy, I’m willing to admit that I have failed all of you, where weaker men would lie and deceive. That’s not what we do, and it’s something we’ll never do, so here we are, marching on.
The good news is that it can’t get any worse. We’re 6–18 over the last two weeks, which means the only direction is up, and that’s what we’ve got with these 10 picks for Week 7. It’s a perfect 10–0 week.
I guarantee it (but don’t actually hold me to that.)
So without further ado, let’s dive right into the winners for Week 7.

Auburn at Ole Miss (-15.5)
Ole Miss looked shaky last week against Vanderbilt, especially in the first half, but still dominated the second half to win with ease, and get us one of our two wins on the weekend.
I wouldn’t expect the same struggles this week from the Rebels.
This one is back home in Oxford, and even though it’s an 11am kickoff, I think the Vaught will be rocking for the morning kick (even though the student section might be late arriving after a long Friday night of drinking on the Square.)
It also doesn’t hurt that Auburn is a horrible football team, and their coach is a dead man walking. With the Auburn bye week coming next week, this feels like a game that Ole Miss has the chance to send Bryan Harsin packing early, potentially as early as Sunday morning.
It may start a little slow, but in the end, look for a 38–17 Ole Miss win, and the Lane Train keeps cruising, this time to 7–0.
Kansas (+9.0) at Oklahoma
The only way this line makes sense is the fact that it’s in Norman.
This Oklahoma defense is allowing 48 points per game over their last three, and I’m not sure why we think that would change here. Now…
