It certainly isn't pretty but Jordan is starting to emerge as the leader of our little band of horribly bad handicappers. To his credit, he has gone 2-1 two weeks in a row now and is one more positive week away from getting above .500 on the season. No pressure, Jordan.

We all have an opinion on tonight's Baylor game but one of is is standing on the opposite side of the others. Take a look at all of our picks and let us know if you think Jordan is going to crack .500 this weekend after the jump.

Jordan

Baylor (-7.5) at LA Monroe - Give me the Bears as I think ULM will run out of gas here at the end of what was a very impressive run

Florida State (-14) - Clemson has a well earned reputation for coming up small in these kinds of games, so give me the Noles to win big and easily cover

Kansas (+9.5) at Northern Illinois - This is either going to make me look like a genius or a total idiot (probably the latter). But what the heck, go big or go home, right?

Matt

Baylor (-7.5) at LA Monroe - You have to give the Warhawks credit for the two week run that they've been on. However, I see this as being a great spot for a letdown and Baylor will take advantage.

UCLA (-7) vs. Oregon State - This is the first road trip of the season for the Beavers and they're playing a UCLA team that they could most likely beat at home. However, I'll take the Bruins at the Rose Bowl.

Notre Dame (-5.5) vs. Michigan - I think that this is going to be a great game that's a lot of fun to watch. Michigan isn't as bad as Alabama made them look but on the road in South Bend I like the spread in favor of the Irish.

Rich

La Monroe (+7.5) vs Baylor - Monroe has taken two SEC teams to overtime. They have the capability to do it again so I'll take the point on this one.

Vanderbilt (+16) vs Georgia - I just can't get on board with this Georgia Train. Vandy had an impressive performance in a loss in week one and I'm hoping they can put on the same type of performance again.

Oregon (-23.5) vs Arizona - I have no confidence in this Arizona squad to keep pace with the Ducks.
