MURPHY’S LAW: Saturday Picks, Hokey Pokey, Skyfall Buzz

Murphy's Law Generic

I think Iowa loses at Northwestern, and I don’t think it will be in doubt late. Iowa proved at Michigan State it can surprise me, but I think Saturday’s knockout by Penn State is the kind that could keep Iowa on the mat for a while…

Unlike Iowa, Iowa State is favored, but I’ll take Baylor. I know the Cyclone defense will slow down Baylor’s track team, but I’m not sure Iowa State’s offense can score enough to keep up with the Bears. If ISU can run, then ISU can pass, then ISU can win. We’ll see…

I can’t take a haunted house where anyone touches me…

Still can’t believe Andy’s costume for Halloween SoundOFF Sunday night. Someone once pointed to his inspiration as a look-alike…

The World Series is about to get lost in football’s considerable shadow. Game 1 was the least watched opener ever…

There’s growing buzz Skyfall is the best Bond movie ever. I. Can’t. Wait.
