Patrick's Picks - Week 9

Wow, last week was crazy. I honestly don't know what's reality right now in the SEC West other than Alabama is really good. Even as a fan I didn't think Auburn was that good. On the other hand, I thought Arkansas was really good. So with Auburn's blowout over Arkansas, now I don't know whether to think that Arkansas really wasn't that good all along, OR that Auburn really is getting pretty good as the season goes on. I guess we'll know more after Auburn and Ole Miss play this week. On another SEC note, Coach O has LSU looking pretty good. Outside of the SEC, Ohio State. That's really all I need to say about that. So last week's picks were decent but not great: 7-4 (Now 91-30 on the season). We're picking a lot more games this week. So here go!
