Week 7 Confidence

1-1 last week, taking the year to 4-7-1. At least we can see the other side now.

I'm working the Cask & Drum today in Birmingham, so I'll tell Dwight Yoakam you said hello. I'm heading off to that in a few minutes, so here's the confidence for the week.

Florida +7'

Get that half point. I've talked to a couple of our more well-known talking heads this past week, and there's a bit of a consensus that the Gators could beat LSU straight up. I'm liking Muschamp to keep his young quarterback (and I bet we see a good bit of wildcat/wildgator with Burton) in a conservative role, as well as his defense keeping it close. And who knows at the end. But I'm comfortable with the Gators and a score.

Alabama -25'

I'm always big on Nick Saban covering in conference games, and Kentucky is as close to a Georgia State or Western Carolina as you'll find in the SEC. Look for the Tide to get out early and score quick - eliminate any hopes for the Wildcats. Bama takes this one big in it's string of not playing anyone in October.

See you later.
