Now that the well publicized romance between Dallas quarterback Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson is long over. Ponder has come clean; he’s hooked up with beautiful, blonde ESPN star, Samantha Steele.
Not only that but his team is a surprising 5-1.
And this Sunday I look for him to take his team to 6-1 with a win over another surprise club, Arizona.
All eyes in KC (except maybe Scott Pioli‘s since he isn’t looking for a quarterback yet) will be on K-State and West Virgina. K-State QB Collin Kline is matched up against West Virginia’s Geno Smith. Both pro prospects in the NFL next season. In fact they’re two of the leading candidates for the Heisman Trophy.
And the winner of this game takes a big step closer to the award.
Smith is clearly the more valued NFL guy with zero interceptions this season and a solid arm, but his loss last week hurt his cause and takes West Virginia out of a national title game with likely SEC champ Alabama.
The Cat’s are a five point dog, but I’m pulling for the area team. They have a great coach in Bill Snyder and with a win at Morgantown will continue to move towards the title match up with the Crimson Tide.
A tough one to call – a no bet from me – but I’m hoping it’s K-State.
The Chiefs have no real future at this point in time except to continue to be one of the NFL worst teams and franchises. That will likely continue for another year or two. So let’s get some joy from K-State guys.
By the way, as the season unfolds it gets tougher on the picks. Thus far I’m moving along prettuy well, very well actually. So let’s see if I can keep it up.
Northwestern +12 1/2 over Nebraska (tease with below at 6 points)
Wisconsin -10 over Minnesota (tease with above)
Alabama -14 over Tennessee (tease with below)
Ohio State -12 over Purdue
MINNESOTA VIKINGS -1/2 OVER ARIZONA (tease with below 6 points)
Houston -1/2 over Baltimore (tease with above)
Green Bay +1 over St. Louis (tease with below)
New England -4 over the Jets (tease with above)
It ain’t easy guys…enjoy
