I’m stunned by the fact Alabama is only favored by 3.5 points over Auburn. I thought that was a mistake when I first saw it. They should be favored by a hell of a lot more. A hell of a lot more!

Alabama, despite getting dog walked by Clemson last year, is loaded with talent. They’re better at every position on the field compared to Auburn.

Being favored by just over a field goal is insanely insulting to the Crimson Tide.

I also had myself a good chuckle when I saw Ohio State was every so slightly favored over Michigan. That won’t make fans of the Wolverines very happy.

As I’ve said about a billion times, until Michigan actually wins something, it’s all just pointless talk.

Once Michigan wins a B1G title, then I’ll never say that again. Until that day arrives, I’m not going to stop.

I really don’t care how much and how loudly Michigan fans complain.

As for Wisconsin being favored against Minnesota, that makes perfect sense. Last year was an outlier and a loss like that won’t happen again.

You can take that much to the bank.
