Personal foul penalty

As many of you have noted, I had a silly oversight in my SEC picks segment earlier Thursday.

In picking Vanderbilt to beat Northwestern, I said it was the only regular-season matchup this season between an SEC team and Big Ten team.

Obviously, that's not right, and I've corrected it. Penn State visits Alabama the second week of the season, a game I've had circled on my calendar for some time.

Again, just an honest mistake, and I apologize.

So you'll know, I was issued a 15-yard personal foul penalty and ejected from the game.

In addition, I will dock myself a win next week in my picks segment. In other words, if I go 10-2, it will go down as 9-3 in the books.

I won't appeal and will accept my punishment and move on.
