Week 4 of the college football season taught me to stop trying to analyze the Sun Belt. I nailed my top three locks last week (LSU, Oregon, SMU) while also getting Georgia and Fresno State correct. However, Florida International and Troy failed miserably. East Carolina and USC also let me down for a mediocre yet still in-the-black 5-4 weekend.
