See our previous Week 1 predictions for an explanation of our system.

Caveat emptor (Buyer beware): We make this material available in good fun out of interest for the sport of college football. Please do not rely on our material to place bets or wagers of any kind. No one knows the exact outcome of a game or a season before it is played and that is what makes it so interesting. We disclaim any and all liability for the consequences of anyone relying in any way upon our postings, analysis, links or reasoning - for which we make no warranty of accuracy. May the best team win.

We use opening betting lines ("the spread", "the line"), as far as possible, and thus write "were favored" or "was favored" since odds change over time. We do not compete against changed odds because we are not competing against bettors. We take opening lines primarily from the College Football Prediction Tracker (CFPT), Sportbet.com, Oddsshark and VegasInsider.com -- also for the over/unders, except for CFPT, which does not have them. We use the College Football Prediction Tracker (CFPT) prediction average as of the date that we find it (Update of Monday, September 10, 2018, 11:21 AM). The CFPT does not include games between FCS and FBS opponents. The teams are FBS teams unless marked as FCS.

Because of Hurricane Florence, with mandatory coastal evacuations already ordered, and because of weather and sports considerations generally, we link below to weather maps at WeatherUnderground. See CNN's Tracking Florence. See also the NCAA statement on inclement/hazardous weather.

Numerous games are impacted, and more may be added as time goes on. Campbell vs. Coastal Carolina has been moved from Saturday to Wednesday to be played at Campbell. UCF at North Carolina has been cancelled (Maine challenged the "National Champs" UCF to play them instead since their game last year was cancelled). East Carolina at Virginia Tech has been cancelled.West Virginia at North Carolina State (NC State) has been cancelled. Boston College at Wake Forest has been moved from 7:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET on Thursday. Ohio at Virginia moved to Nashville, Vanderbilt Stadium. Norfolk State at Liberty has been moved to December 1. Update: ESPN reports that Marshall v. South Carolina has been cancelled. It is possible that more games could be postponed or cancelled after the time that we post our prognostications.

Both teams are on the upswing, so who will win this one? The Eagles beat the Boilermakers via their passing game while Buffalo has a good pass defense thus far. See cfbstats.com. (Passing defense, Buffalo 26th, Eastern Michigan 37th; passing offense, Buffalo 64th, Eastern Michigan 21st; rushing defense, Buffalo 84th, Eastern Michigan 122nd, rushing offense, Buffalo 86th, Eastern Michigan 107th.

Sky Earth Native America


Sky Earth Native America 1 :
American Indian Rock Art Petroglyphs Pictographs
Cave Paintings Earthworks & Mounds as Land Survey & Astronomy
,
Volume 1, Edition 2, 266 pages, by Andis Kaulins.

  • Sky Earth Native America 2 :
    American Indian Rock Art Petroglyphs Pictographs
    Cave Paintings Earthworks & Mounds as Land Survey & Astronomy
    ,
    Volume 2, Edition 2, 262 pages, by Andis Kaulins.

  • Both volumes have the same cover except for the labels "Volume 1" viz. "Volume 2".
    The image on the cover was created using public domain space photos of Earth from NASA.

    -----

    Both book volumes contain the following basic book description:
    "Alice Cunningham Fletcher observed in her 1902 publication in the American Anthropologist
    that there is ample evidence that some ancient cultures in Native America, e.g. the Pawnee in Nebraska,
    geographically located their villages according to patterns seen in stars of the heavens.
    See Alice C. Fletcher, Star Cult Among the Pawnee--A Preliminary Report,
    American Anthropologist, 4, 730-736, 1902.
    Ralph N. Buckstaff wrote:
    "These Indians recognized the constellations as we do, also the important stars,
    drawing them according to their magnitude.
    The groups were placed with a great deal of thought and care and show long study.
    ... They were keen observers....
    The Pawnee Indians must have had a knowledge of astronomy comparable to that of the early white men."
    See Ralph N. Buckstaff, Stars and Constellations of a Pawnee Sky Map,
    American Anthropologist, Vol. 29, Nr. 2, April-June 1927, pp. 279-285, 1927.
    In our book, we take these observations one level further
    and show that megalithic sites and petroglyphic rock carving and pictographic rock art in Native America,
    together with mounds and earthworks, were made to represent territorial geographic landmarks
    placed according to the stars of the sky using the ready map of the starry sky
    in the hermetic tradition, "as above, so below".
    That mirror image of the heavens on terrestrial land is the "Sky Earth" of Native America,
    whose "rock stars" are the real stars of the heavens, "immortalized" by rock art petroglyphs, pictographs,
    cave paintings, earthworks and mounds of various kinds (stone, earth, shells) on our Earth.
    These landmarks were placed systematically
    in North America, Central America (Meso-America) and South America
    and can to a large degree be reconstructed as the Sky Earth of Native America."
