RSMU – Week 6 Picks

Last week, the RSM football gurus were spotless in their record … because we didn’t pick any games. We’re back this week, but you’ll have to forgive any strangeness.

RSM Profile: Davy Crockett

There are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of Real Southern Men we could profile here.
