Duquesne is having a weird year. In the off season there was that nut who shot some of their players. You'd think that would have destroyed a program that was already in bad shape.
But they've come up with some big wins. I think they beat BC too. I was ticked when Dayton couldn't beat them, but they're winning some others too.
SMU beating UAB was huge for me. It turned an average week (6-4) into a good one (7-3).
All my 5 of solid favorites won this week (Kan, VCU vs W&M, Mo St, Mia-O and Wi-Mil). Three of those narrowly avoided being upset (Mo St, Mia-O and Wi-Mil).
I only got 1 of my 3 toss-ups (won with Day over GW, but lost with VCU @ Hof and S.Car vs Aub). But I got the big upset win with SMU over UAB. Boise losing to NM St was the only game I viewed as a certain loss that turned out that way.
7-3 was really about as much as I could have expected, and that's what I got. I still think I may be a pretender but I do have some momentum now. My last 3 segments are 7-3, 6-4 and 7-4. Not eye-popping numbers but solid progress.
