College football: Joe vs. Pro, Week 9

Each week has been a different type of test for Jameis Winston, Florida State’s redshirt freshman quarterback who has captured the hearts of Seminoles fans. This week, Winston has had to deal with the full onslaught of the national hype machine while also preparing for N.C. State. National hype is a corruptible thing. Just look at Joe’s picks for an example of what happens when success clouds one’s perspective. Joe, the Miami Herald’s college football columnist, had his best week ever against the spread a month ago, but ever since has lost big time. Last week, he went 2-6 against the spread and 2-6 straight up. The Pro, Lee Sterling of, went 4-4 against the spread last week and 3-5 straight up. The Pro is 41-21-2 against the spread this season and 45-19 straight up. Joe is 33-29-2 against the spread and 46-18 straight up. On to the picks!
