Both of us went 7-3 last week, even though we missed a couple of different games.

That allowed me to keep my one-game lead heading into Week 3, when we a couple different picks yet again.

As you can see, we're both looking for an easy KU victory today over Louisiana Tech.

Let's see what happens!

Answer: I've lived with all kinds of pets throughout my life, from different types of dogs to cats, birds and even fish. But none of those were pets that I had my heart set on and picked out personally. Because of that, I don't have any real strong allegiances to any type of pet. I do, however, have to point out that my wife is always wanting one of those monkeys like Ross had on Friends or the fellas had in The Hangover. I'm sure we'd regret it if we went for it, but that sounds pretty cool, especially if we could train him to bring us drinks and snacks.

Texas Tech 42, Texas State 14
Baylor 59, Louisiana-Monroe 14
Stanford 31, Arizona State 17
Notre Dame 21, Michigan State 17
Maryland 31, West Virginia 28
LSU 31, Auburn 10
Florida 28, Tennessee 20

Answer: Dogs truly are a man's best friend. Regardless of how badly you've been savaged in an email, how horribly you've played golf, etc., your dog greets you at the front door as if you've been missing for a year and was just found. It washes your troubles away and makes you realize you always have a friend. Tibetan Terriers aren't the most common breed, just the best. They're medium-sized dogs — 25 to 30 pounds — with a big-dog personality. They rarely bark, don't shed and always want to be by your side but don't want to sit on your lap. My wife's favorite breed was a Bichon Friche, mine a Labrador Retriever. My sister-in-law suggested we look into Tibetan Terriers. I researched them on the Internet and called a breeder who lived about 20 minutes from us. He asked if we were interested in a show dog or pet. I said pet. "Most of the people who come to us for a pet come because the husband wants a Lab and the wife wants a Bichon," he said, using those breeds as examples. Sold! Super loyal with fun personalities.
