What has the Florida loss done to the confidence of the fan base?  Very little against Arkansas:  92.5% take the Vols at home Saturday night, showing both continued confidence in where things are going and how high the level of disappointment will be with a loss.  It's a big game for the direction of this season.

In other action this week:

  • The force is strong with The U, getting 86.5% of the picks on the road at Cincinnati tonight (7:30 PM ET, ESPN)
  • 61.5% take Missouri at home over South Carolina in another big game for the direction of seasons in the SEC
  • Our readers are split on the SEC's biggest game, with 53.7% taking Alabama on the road in Athens in what should be a great game.
  • 55.6% are taking Vanderbilt down the road in Murfreesboro
  • In what is on paper the best week of the season by far, the closest pick of the week goes to its biggest game:  51.2% take Notre Dame on the road Saturday night in Death Valley.
