For the second consecutive week, Joe and the Pro finished with identical records both straight up and against the spread.
For Joe, the Herald’s national college football columnist, that’s great news. He can see the sweat forming on the Pro’s forehead as the second half of the season gets underway. That said, we have all the faith in the world that Joe will crash and burn in due time and the Pro, Lee Sterling of ParamountSports.com, will rise above the fray. Both Joe and the Pro went 6-2 straight up and 5-3 against the spread last week.
For the season, the Pro is 40-16 straight up and 27-24 against the spread. Joe vs. the Pro is in its third season and the Pro has finished each season in the black against the spread. The same cannot be said for Joe, but he’s hanging on this season, 41-15 straight up and 24-27 against the spread.
