10-0 NOT A GOOD START FOR SOME TEAMS THIS WEEKEND

I watched the Clemson/Maryland game (11 AM on Saturday). The Tigers jumped out to a quick 10-0 lead. They dominated early. They ended up losing.
Texas A&M played Arkansas at Cowboys Stadium last night. I predicted the Aggies would lose big, which they did. But they also jumped out to a quick 10-0 lead.
Oklahoma went to Miami to face the Hurricane. The Sooners were up quick, 10-0. They lost.
Case Keenum and the 12th ranked Houston Cougars had gone to then-5th ranked Oklahoma State and won. Then they hosted Texas Tech and won by a point. They led UTEP (a team the Texas Longhorns held to 53 total YARDS) 10-0...and lost.
It happened to Army, too. They led 10-0 and lost.
And wouldn't you know it? The Dallas Cowboys took a quick 10-0 lead in Denver this afternoon. Need me to tell you what happened?
What's the deal with the 10-0 lead? It's a curse or something.
And as for my predictions before games started yesterday...I was 4 out of 6. I missed Florida State/BC and Cal/USC.
