Mangino was 10-0 once before, then Kobayashi started competing

What to watch this weekend:

Coach Fran is a 19 point dog at Mizzou. Since getting waxed by OU, Aggieland has been buzzing with rumors of a contract buyout. There is no truth to the speculation that they are waiting for coach Callahan to be on the market. I think Tech fans can sympathize with the Aggies - all the A&M fans I work with want them to lose to get rid of their coach. Fortunately for them, it looks like the Aggies will lose this week and to Texas.

Rock, chalk, Jayhawk - the fighting Manginos are going for a 10-0 start this weekend as 6 point favorites at Oklahoma State. This has been a rough week for the Pokes. First they lose to Texas after leading by 21, then their starting linebacker pleads guilty to molesting a 12 year old girl when he was 17. A Kansas win all but assures the Sooners a trip to the Big XII championship game. Even if OSU beats OU, then OU will win the tiebreaker against Texas.

Tech plays Duke. I almost fell asleep just thinking about it.

Congratulations Kuhn. You dropped Pennington and now you're starting Vinny Testaverde. No wonder you're getting 18 points against Ball's terrible team (which, in the interest of full disclosure, I should say handed my beloved Cleveland Steamers their only loss of the year).

I think posting odds on fantasy matchups is one of the most interesting, yet useless, things I've seen in a while.

The WAD faces off against Stats this week. Currently they're both starting two bye week players. Way to care guys. Way to care.

In case you're wondering, and I know you are, here's an update on Wesley Snipes' tax-evasion case.

Don't forget to send me your locks of the week. From the look of things, there's not a single reader of the WAD that should be gambling.

Have a nice day,
