Football Picks: My worst pick 'em week ever surfaced last week (3-7). I'm at a loss. I select many of the toughest games, but it's not against the spread. The coin flipping method may be applied this week. The record is now 55-30 (65%).

Stanhope Elmore at Park Crossing (Thursday): The new kids on the block have been "Hangin' Tough" and should have "The Right Stuff" to win again this week. I'll make no more references to boy bands. Park Crossing 34, Stanhope 28.

Reeltown at Lanett: It was a happy homecoming for the Rebels last week. Jackie O's boys will secure a first round playoff game being played at the stadium with his name on it with a win this week. Reeltown 26, Lanett 20.

Elmore County at Childersburg: The Panthers have stepped up their play and are primed for a first round home game in the post-season with a win on Friday. Elmore County 35, Childersburg 21.

Carver at Wetumpka: The Wolverines bounced back nicely after the loss to Park Crossing a few weeks back to top Dothan on the road last Friday. They're still the class of the region. Carver 42, Wetumpka 27.

Sylacauga at Tallassee: The word anomaly best describes Beauregard's offensive outburst against a usually stern Tallassee defense. The Tigers touted one of the top units in the state entering last week. Some key injuries have hurt, but I expect an improvement this week.

The top seed could still happen with the wacky tiebreak system, but a loss will likely place the Tigers as the fourth seed. THS 34, Sylacauga 28.

Troy at South Alabama: It's Larry Blakeney's swan song and he has his worst team yet. USA's Joey Jones might be a man of interest to replace one of the deans' of coaches down in Troy. South Alabama 38, Troy 20.

Mississippi State at Kentucky: The Cats bid to knock off LSU and prove they're not Kentucky blew up like a chemistry lab experiment gone wrong. This would be just like Mississippi State to choke though. MSU 44, Kentucky 24.

Ole Miss at LSU: I've said that I'd put Ole Miss at the top of the rankings. It's a toss up between them and their in-state rivals, but I like the "Landsharks" defense. Still, I'm expecting the other shoe to drop on both Mississippi teams. It might be a size 14 "EE" wide on Saturday night in Tiger Stadium. LSU 23, Ole Miss 20.

Alabama at Tennessee: Bama fans found the team they've been searching for last weekend. I do feel that part of that was Alabama and the other a decimated Aggies squad. Tennessee is the same UT post-Fulmer team even with Butch Jones. This is on the road though. Alabama 27, Tennessee 13.

South Carolina at Auburn: The Gamecocks are a below average SEC team that has played well below Steve Spurrier's expectations. Auburn's offense will give Cocky's weak defense fits. Dylan Thompson has also been a disappointment. The AU defensive front will have a field day with him too. Auburn 41, South Carolina 17.
