Last week’s record was 10 correct out of 14 picks (the Trumann game was cancelled). Normally I’d say that’s pretty decent, but it wouldn’t have even come close to winning The TD’s Football Forecast. Several entrants picked all 14 games correctly and several more only missed one. I guess I need to get my crystal ball fine-tuned if I’m going to compete with you guys.
Nonetheless, here we go again with this week’s picks.
1. Memphis at Arkansas State (Game of the Week). ASU won’t need a miracle to beat the Tigers this year. Indians by 7.
2. Walnut Ridge at Piggott. Piggott won a thriller at Sexton Field last year. I’m going with the Mohawks at home.
3. Alabama at Vanderbilt. Alabama.
4. Mountain View at Hoxie. Hoxie goes to 2-0.
5. South Florida at Auburn. South Florida won nine games last year, including a late-season upset at West Virginia. Last week, Auburn had to score late to pull out the game against Kansas State. I’m picking Auburn to win another close one.
6. West Side at Salem. Salem.
7. Virginia Tech at LSU. LSU should win this battle of Top 10 teams.
8. Earle at Marvell. Earle is ranked in the Top 5 in Class 2A. That’s good enough for me to pick them over Marvell.
9. Notre Dame at Penn St. Notre Dame lost at home to Georgia Tech by 30 last week. I’m not sure if Penn State is as good as Tech, but they should beat the Irish at home.
10. Rector at Valley View. The Blazers will make a wreck of Rector.
11. Missouri at Ole Miss. Missouri has too much firepower on offense. They should beat the Rebels.
12. EPC at Cross County. Cross County.
13. Southern Miss at Tennessee. Tennessee.
14. Harrisburg at Highland. This could be the best high school game in the area. I’m picking Highland at home.
15. Kent State at Kentucky. Kentucky will roll over another cupcake.

I recently wrote about the doctor finding a lump in my breast. After a mammogram and ultrasound, it was determined that I needed to have a biopsy. I went to UAMS in Little Rock on Friday. I wasn’t really sure what to expect once I got there, but the doctors were amazing.
They looked at the films I had brought them and decided to go ahead and remove the entire lump and then test it… I could either schedule a day to come in and be asleep during the procedure, or they could do it that day and use a local anesthetic.
I chose to go ahead and get it over with. The doctor used a “mammotome” to remove the lump. The procedure didn’t take long and went really well. I had some pain in the area on Friday night and over the weekend. If I do a lot with my left arm, it starts to hurt. All-in-all, though, it wasn’t bad.
I heard from the doctor today, and my results showed no sign of malignancy. While I never doubted that would be the outcome, it was nice to actually hear it and it will be a relief for the rest of my family and friends!
