Game of the Week: Miami vs. Florida State

For those of you new to The Nittany Line (TNL) or those of you that forgot we are having a weekly competition to see who the better prognosticator is: ESPN “experts” or our dogs. The original post with rules can be found here. In short, we will pick the best/juiciest game of the week and pit our dogs ability to choose the winner vs. Lee Corso (college) and Hank Goldberg (pro). But it doesn’t end there; you the reader get a vote as well. We will post a poll each week and allow the wonderful readers of this blog to have their say, whoever gets the most votes will be considered the readers choice for the week. We’ll keep tabs so keep coming back to vote. Since the pro’s haven’t started yet, we will only concentrate on this week’s college game: Florida State vs. Miami on Monday September 4th.

Method: I placed two identical doggy treats on clearly marked team papers and let Brandi choose which treat (team) she thought was best. Week 1 is under way and Brandi, our college football expert has already made her pick. Without further ado, week 1’s winner will be… (drum roll)


Florida State!

An informed choice by our expert, makes her master proud. Now we will wait for Lee's pick later this week. But you can vote now! To enter, click on your pick to the right under "The Game Of The Week" section.

I may actually use Satchel and Jelly for gambling purposes this season. Couldn't hurt, right?

Abusing your dogs for gambling purposes or strange psychological experiments is perfectly ok. Screw PETA.

Bad Brandi! Bad Dog! Baaaaaaaaad!

Brandi keeps up to date with suspensions, coaching changes, and has a keen sense of matchups. That and she likes Florida State colors more.

Cool Hand,

I just saw an update to the hurricane and it looks like it won't get here until later in the weekend, I'm keeping my fingers crossed. That reminds me I want to add some weather links for the blog.

A lot of rain but that should be all. Maybe Joe Pa will run the wishbone for a game.

That's one smart dog! Who did she pick in the Orange Bowl?

Florida State, to spite her master! I forced her to listen to 3 hours of Michael Bolton music for punishment, but it appears she didn't learn.
