It was a horrible day for a daring football prognosticator who swore Notre Dame was over-rated, who was sure the Gators were worthy of being ranked No. 2 and who predicted the Lions could best the Buckeyes at home in Happy Valley.
Like Icarus who flew too close to the sun—Mighty Zultan came too close to perfection. The Football Gods torched his flammable cloak, sending the All-Seeing One headlong into the sink hole of also-rans—where the rest of you dwell.
Except, of course the dozen or so of you who out-guessed Zultan last Saturday.
These distinguished prognosticators will be listed at the end of this article with appropriate kudos for rising above Zultan in Week 9.
Week 10 promises even more untold surprises.
What unlucky unbeaten will fall? Will Nebraska manage to sustain their slight lead and win on the road? Can LSU change the course of football history in 2012? Who knows??
Zultan was mortally wounded in Week 9—managing to hang on at 5-5. He staggered under the weight of expectation. Can he exceed that mark? Make your own picks in Week 10—and go head-to-head with Zultan to defend your choices.
