Barbeque or Mildew.......NFL Picks

NYJ at Buf

UH-OHHHH!!!!! T.O's back. Owens has had almost 400 yards in the last 3 games combined. Many thought he had lost it but he has shown that if he's a focal point of your offense, he still can be dangerous. It's Mildew for both squads because neither have enough pieces to the puzzle to make a playoff run. Sanchez will keep the Jets from winning by throwing picks while T.O has found a neww BFF in Bills QB Fitzpatrick. Bills win

Philly at ATL

Vicks going back to the ATL. To his adoring fans and to an owner who stood up for him. Vick has tried to make up for his misgivings up to this point, just too bad he won't really return as the QB of the Eagles. It's Mildew for the Falcons because Matt Ryan hasn't shown that he can carry the team. Without Turner playing at a 100% they don't have a chance. Philly will be barbequeing in the playoffs but they really need to get a run and make big plays without Jackson to show that they are really Superbowl contenders. Philly wins

TB at Carolina

It's Mildew for both of these bad teams. Neither will make the playoffs and Jake Delhomme may be getting his head coach fired in the process. If only they could've made a trade for Vick...... TB is just bad. Good luck in the draft. Panthers win


The Bears are Mildew, they've been drug into the cellar by Jay Cutler. He leagues the league in picks. Yes, he's worse than Delhomme. Who would've ever thought.....they'll still beat a terrible STL team. Bears win.

Det at Cincy

Detroit of course is Mildew..Cincy is barbequeing all they way to a bye, if the playoffs began right now. Cincy will dominate with a big time rushing attack and a very consistent passing game. Probably the most complete playoff style team right now. Cincy wins

Ten at Ind

Something has to give. One winning streak ends. How can you bet against Payton Manning at this moment. Both teams look to be barbequeing into the playoffs but, the 5-6 team has more momentum. Tenn don't think they can lose right now. The Colts have had to sneak out of 2 possible losses. Vince Young is on a mission and has proven with last weeks performance that he does have an arm. The Colts won't be able to handle the dual threat of Vince young arm and legs and the best RB in the NFL Chris Johnson. Tenn wins

Hou at Jac

Both teams are Mildew. They seem to be right at the door but can't knock it down. They are pretty much equal teams. Houston wins.

Den at KC

Denver is Mildew but they win. Wo are they playing again. Matt Cassell....put the money in the bag.

NE at Mia

NE will be barbequeing in the playoffs. Miami is Mildew. NE has to recover from the whuppin they took on monday night. What better way to get over it than by beaten a divisional foe. NE wins.

Oak at Pitt

Pitt wins but I think is Mildew. Oh yeah.....they're playing Oakland.

NO at Wash

There's no way the Skins can win this game. NO averages over 400 yards per game and the Skins find a way to lose every game. But wait, there's more....the Skins will finally put together what the fans had hoped for from the begining of the season. No more undefeated teams after this week. Skins win.

SD at Cle

SD will be barbequeing again because of a weak division. Ofcourse they'll beat the Browns.

Dal at NYG

It's no longer December but the Cowboys are playing well and the NYG's continue too struggle.They are begining to start talking about having a fast start in games.....UH-OOHH it'l be a long 4th quarter to the Giants season. Cowboys win.

SF at Sea

Both teams are Mildew. Sea needs some players and SF needs a QB. Sea wins.

Min at Ari

Both teams will barbeque. Minn will win because Kurt won't play and yep Linehart still aint ready to be a starter. Minn wins.

Bal at GB

Bal is Mildew while GB will be barbequeing in the playoffs. GB is a very complete ball club that is primed to make a deep playoff run. GB wins.

The Real BCS Championship Game.......College Picks


Heisman hopefuls Tim Tebow and Mark Ingram will receive the award based on the winner of this game. The clash of the titans, and maybe the most highly anticipated game in 10 years. Defending National Champs Florida maybe better on defense and more balanced on offense than they were last year. Bama is definitely better on defense but have truly underperformed on offense this year.For the people that think Ingram will run wild on Florida are delusional. Who has done it. They are the #1 defense in the country 2 years in a row because they know how to stop the run. Bama had the edge the 1st 7 games of the season because of their lights out style of play. But they became human in the Tenn game. A game in which they were dominated in every phase of the game except special teams. That's when Florida caught their stride and began to dominate and beat down opponents.They blew out Georgia and haven't looked back sense. The key to this game is Julio Jones. Bama is undefeated because of his 7catches against Tenn and his 9 catches last week. Jones will need to make 3 huge plays in order for Bama to win. But, Florida has the #1 passing d in the country. Sorry Bama fans if u aint a Gator ur Gator Bait!!! 34-23 Gators

Oregon St at Oregon

This game will be an offensive battle with Masoli and James of Oregon versus the Rodger brothers of Oregon St.Both schools have almost an identical schedule with almost the same record. The Beavers beat Stanford while the Duck's lost to them. The Duck's destroyed USC as the Beavers lost a heart breaker to them. Both teams have good QB's and even better RB's. In their toughest battles the teams defenses have struggled. This "Back yard Battle" will come down to the offense that has the ball last. Because they are at home, with the best QB , the Duck's will win. 37-31 Oregon

GTECH vs Clemson

Paul Johnson's offense sputtered last week against their rival Georgia. They were held to a season low 205 yards rushing. GTECH's defense was beaten down by a Bulldog running game as well. Clemson was also dominated in the running game by South Carolina. Clemson also had their lowest output in the running game only managing 48 yards. Both Teams have to go back to the drawing board and try to figure out what adjustments need to be made. GTECH's defense won't get that much better in the running game but Clemson struggles running the ball. Heisman candidate CJ Spiller only manages 76 ypg on the ground. Clemson victory: Run the ball,run the ball, stay off the ground on defense. GTech victory: run your offense, prevent 20+ yard plays. GTECH wins. 34-24 GTECH

*****UPSET ALERT*****
Cincy at Pitt

Tony Pike's back with a vengeance. He should be a name at least being mentioned for the Heisman. Cincy has play makers all over the field on offense lead by speedy Gilyard. He's a big play receiver that has shown he also is a danger in the special teams game. The only weakness of this Cincy team is their weak defense. A defense that gives up way to many yards (350ypg) per game. The problem with Pitt's loss to WVU last week was this week. Wannstedt wasn't able to get his group focused on WVU with Cincy just on the horizon. Pitt comes in with their 3 headed monster of QB Stull, RB Lewis and WR Baldwin. Stull has had a steady hand because of the big play ability of Baldwin and Lewis. Lewis was the first back o a 1000 yards in the country. Baldwin will end up with a thousand yards in this game in a run 1st offense. But the most underrated and sometimes the most important player on their offense is unknown TE/FB/HB/WR Dickerson. He has 45 receptions and is a go to 3rd down and emergency target for Stull. He compares easily to the super athletic Hernandez of Florida. But the reason why Pitt will beat Cincy will be because of their pass rush. Pitt's getting almost 4 sacks a game lead be DE Romeus. The skilled finesse type of offense of Cincy will be bruised and battered by the #1 pass rushing attack in the country. 30-24 Pitt

*****UPSET ALERT*****
Houston at ECU

Greenville,NC - Dowdy-Fickelyn Stadium, home of the ECU Pirates is one of the most underrated stadiums in the country. Ask any player that has played their and they'll tell you it's one of the rowdiest places they have ever played. This will play a huge role against a Houston offense that has to communicate a lot to run their high powered offense. ECU's QB Pickney has gotten better every year and has consistently proven that no game is bigger than he is. Case Keenum should be making the trip to New York this year but he won't. He's throwing for 350 yards per game. This is insane. Keenum had thrown for over a thousand yards by the 3rd game of the year. This offense is clearly the best pasing offense in the country. But Houston has struggled dearly on defense. ECU averages one upset a year and it's their last chance this year for one. ECU wins. 28-24 ECU

Texas at Nebraska

Colt McCoy needs a huge game in order to be crowned Heisman this year. He has had a great year and has lead a less than star studded Texas to an undefeated season. Texas hasn't been all offense this year. Their defense has took care of business and is ranked #2 in the country. They have been able to hold powerful offenses like OSU and TT to their worst games of the year. Nebraska has been also lead by their defense this year. DT Suh has dominated every opponent this season. But Nebraska could of easily lost half of the games they won. Texas has flat out blew past all of their competition this year. 45-20 Texas

WVU at Rutgers

This almost made one of the upset picks of the week. But, it's hard to understand how Rutgers was blown out by a weak Syracuse team. WVU's duo of Brown and Devine will be to much for Rutger's to handle. Rutgers will be able to score because of a well coached and creative offense. But it won't be enough for the explosive and battle tested WVU offense. 31-20 WVU

Cal at Washington

Cal will control this game from start to finish. Why? For the same reason Washington has won and lost all year. Inconsistency at QB. Yep NFL scouts may be high on him but Jake Locker is a big risk taker. Those risks have gotten him 18 TD's but also brought him 11 INT's. They are a 4-7 team that has beaten heavy weights USC and Arizona. But, have lost to Notre Dame and a bad UCLA. Cal RB Shane Vereen will dominate the line of scrimmage the entire game. This should be a blow out. 38-17 Cal


USF has underachieved again this year. The talent they are able to put on the field warrants more wins then they are getting. It may be time for a coaching change. UCONN has been able to deal with the death of their teammate Jazz and were still able to rally to win a big game in South Bend.UCONN will have a hard time throwing the ball against the speed and athletic ability of both DE's Pieer-Paul and Selvie. USF BJ Daniels has been the surprise of the year. He will be a dark horse for the Heisman next season. Watch this game and you'll see why. USF wins. 28-27 USF

NE at NO
NE wins because they're NE.

The Best of College Football Rivalry week!!!!!!

Texas at A&M

The Texas showdown will be a huge let down. This will be a warmup for the Bug 12 Championship for the Longhorns. A&M just doesn't have enough firepower on defense. Thus will definately be a blowout. 51-10 Texas


Brother against brother, sister against sister, grandma against granpa. Yep, Auburn's playing Bama in football. No game in the country has a rivalry as fierce as this one.The Civil War of Alabama has erupted again........It will be close, but Bama will win. 28-20 Bama

Pitt at WVU

The most dominate under-estimated team in the FBS will showcase their dominance the day after Thanksgiving. They are solid on both sides of the ball and boast the one of the best RB's in the country. WVU has the same old problem.......Explosive offense led by Brown and Devine and a terrible defense. Pitt wins. 38-24 Pitt


The once storied rivalry with national implications has been reduced because of a terrible Florida St defense. Tim Tebow will play his last game in the Swamp and will put on a Heisman winning performance....Yep he'll win it. Tim Tebow, college's greatest player needs to take it all in because the draft is coming and he won't be a QB in it.

Clemson at South Carolina

A storied South Carolina rivalry that has a profound affect in the bragging rights of the state. It has developed little if any national prominance because it has never held any national implications. Recruitting doesn't even seem to be affected by this game because Clemson has dominated the series but still doesn't have a lock on the state's best athelete's. Clemson has the best team this year and is on a winning streak. South Carolina is on the usual november slide. Tigers win a very close one. 34-31 Tigers


UNC's defense is much to dominate and agressive. NCST may have the worst defense in the ACC. UNC wins. 28-6 UNC

Wake at Duke

This match-up boast 2 out of the 3 best QB's in the ACC. Lewis of Duke and Skinner of Wake. This should be a very exciting high scoring contest that will come down to the last play of the game. But the Dukies need a win more the Wake. Duke wins. 28-24 Duke

*****UPSET ALERT*****

The Cowboys have had a good year that could have been great if they had Dez Bryant. They should be able to cap off the season with a win against their storied rival, Oklahoma..... They won't Oklohoma will win this game convincingly becaus ethey want it more and their dominance on the rcruiting trail shall continue.42-24 OK

*****UPSET ALERT******
Miami at USF

The little brother of the Florida schools is ready for a huge win. They will be fired up and ready to play against a Miami team that still don't realize they play for the U. Next year Randy Shannon will get his message across...This year they will lose a very close game to USF.Watch out for next year Heisman crasher....BJ Daniels
Bulls win. 38-33 USF

Georgia at GTech

Mark Riicht's in trouble. 2 loses in a row to a GTech team that you have better athelete's than. Mark Richt you are the weakest link...goodbye. 27-13 GTech

Illinois at Cincy

The Fighting Illini have been but a shelll of their former self since their Rose Bowl birth 2 years ago. Roon Zook is still on the Hot Seat and Juice Williams has went from definate draft pick to maybe not even getting a free agent invite. Cincy is rolling and QB play has been some of the best in the country. This will certainly be a rout. 48-13 Cincy

Temple at Ohio

Temple wins again. Go Owls!!!! 31-17 Owls

Nevada at Boise St

Why are you rewarded for weak scheduling? Boise is not the # 6 team in the country.But, they'll definately look like it against Nevada. 56-17 Boise

Rutgers at Louisville

Besides Rutgers slip up last week, they have had a great year. Louisville on the other hand has 3 wins and none of them against teams who have a winning record. They are just a BAD team. Rytgers will win easily. 27-3 Rutgers

Thursday, November 19, 2009

Physical ! Physical! Physical!! NFL Picks

Mia at Carolina

The Panthers are coming in as usual with a strong running game and a tough D. Mia has struggled in the passing game on offense and D because of a young secondary. Can Delhomme expose the sencondary. Miami has lost Ronnie Brown but have gained something even better, Pat White. White will demand more touches throughout the ball game because he will give the Dolphins a look no one has seen since Vick in Atlanta. Miami wins.

Ind at Baltimore

The Colts have been on fire this season. They have been kept in check mostly because of their competeition. There won't be a let down this week either because they will tear up an unusual week B-More D. Colts win

Wash at Dallas

Washington is struggling on offense. And it's november, Dallas has played well during this month and nothing will change with the Skins coming to town. Dallas wins.

Cle at Det

Who cares? Browns Browns ..... okay here's the coin flip.....Browns win!!

SF at GB

Sf has turned into pretenders. After physically dominating the Vikings in Minn, they have struggled on D since. Offensively they continue to make strides but they need better play out of their D. GB will win, but when will Rodgers not get up from one of those sacks. Come on O-Line. GB wins

Buf at Jac

Buffalo just fired Dick Jaron this week. T.O got him fired. Just kidding. Buffalo's bad and they'll lose. MJD keep ballin man. Jags win.

Pitt at KC

Pitt will dominate a terrible KC team. The organization really needs to take a look at itself from the top down. Pitt wins

Sea at Min

2 easy weeks in a row... I smell a let up. I don't know how but Seattle wins

Atl at NYG

The Giants are in win or pack it up mode. Atl will be lacking their entire offense in Michael Turner. This will give Big Blue what they needed. Giants win.

NO at TB

Drew Brees is great.....Tampa's terrible......NO wins

Ari at STL

Fantasy folks, this is your week to pick up Fitzgerald,Bolden and Warner. They will go off this week. Expect huge numbers. Zona wins.

SD at Den

Bronco's I don't believe. SD will take their rightful place at the top of the division after this game. Denver has been exposed and Orton won't be able to fix the hole. It's going to be a rough year from her on out.


Sanchez has realized it's not college anymore. Were finding out he wasn't special after all.He'll be fine next year. But that's next year. They'll be beat a lot in the meantime. NE wins

Cin at Oak

Finally Cincy gets a break. They have the Raiders coming in. Let's see if Larry Johnson still has it. Cincy wins

Philly at Chicago

Both teams need this win badly. McNabb needs to put up more points because the front seven of Philly's D has under performed. The Bears D needs to create more turnovers because Cutler keeps turning the ball over. Philly wins

Ten at Hou

Vince Young is on a 3 game win streak. Not because of his stellar play but because of Chris Johnson and his league leading 110 yards. Tenn wins.

Friday, November 13, 2009

This is the NFL!!! Weekly Picks

Atl at Carolina

Atlanta had a huge win last week. Their running game has carried them this entire year. Ryan will be asked to win this game and he needs to be ready for it. Carolina, led by Jake Delhomme will need a serious running game in order to have a chance to win. Atl wins

TB at Mia

Tampa won last week with a rookie QB. Reality will set in this week, and they will lose. Mia wins

Det at Minnesota

The Lions are in trouble this week. They'll be wishing next season was here after this thrashing. Vikings win

Jac at NYJ

The Jags and Jets are very similar teams. They both have good running games and a good defense. MJD will finally get 20+ carries and this should give the Jags the edge over the struggling Sanchez. Jags win

Cincy at Pitt

Cincy is the biggest suprise of the NFL. TJ who? The Bengals now have one of the best RB's in football, Cedric Benson. Sometimes a second chance pays off.The problem is, Pitts coming to town. The stellar play of Big Ben and the Steeler D will be to much. Pitt wins


What is this, a bad joke????? NO wins!!!

Buf at Tenn

Buffalo has struggled. Tenn is on a 2 game win streak. I like Vince Young and the new found Tenn D. Tenn wins.

Den at Wash
Wash was a play or 2 away last week. Denver's team is a fraud. Do you remember how Mike Shannahan would have great regular season play. Washington, is starving for a win. They'll get it.

KC at Oak

The worst of the worst are matched up. KC needs to start all over again. They haven't been any good since Joe Montana left.The raiders are bad, but they will beat KC.

Sea at Arizona

Seattle's getting better. Arizona has been inconsistent. Anquan Bolden's back..... add all this up. Zona wins.

Dallas at GB

I don't ..I won't... I can't believe in Tony Romo. Green Bay has to bounce back. GB wins..

Philly at SD

The Chargers had a huge win against Big Blue last week. Problem is,the Giants are a bad team. Philly on the other hand is a good team. Philly wins.


This game boils down to who wants it more. Both teams have to make a playoff run for home field advantage. Look for the winner to be in the Super Bowl.

Bal at Cle

Baltimore's D will dominate the Browns. Mangini is about to lose 2 jobs in less than a year. Ravens win.

Thursday, November 12, 2009

Showtime Saturday!! College Picks

West Virginia at Cincy

Tony Pikes down again. The Bear-Cats have there first really tough opponent. Calloras will really have to play well this week to give Cincy a chance to win. WVU has it's own set of issues. RB Noel Devine is questionable for this game. He is accountable for most of the Mountaineers offense as a runner and through the screen game. But, Cincy will win because the WVU defense will give up enough points to give the game away. 38-24 Cincy

Florida at South Carolina

If U AINT a GATOR UR GATOR BAIT. This one won't be close, the Gators have just hit their National Championship stride. 41-13 Gators

Stanford at USC

If Stanford was playing at home , this would've been an upset alert. Pete Carroll normally takes 2 seasons to lose 2 games. It won't be a third. USC 28-17

****Upset Alert****
Georgia Tech at Duke

The #1 rushing offense is coming into Wallace Wade Stadium. That spells disaster for a Duke team whose defense has been its achilles heal all year. Thad Lewis needs to have a huge game for Duke to have a chance to win. This game will be closer than expected with Duke edging out an historic victory. 38-31 Duke

Bama at Miss ST

Bama is playing well. Nick Saban has his team hittin on all cylinders. They must continue in order to be ready for Florida in the National.....sorry, I mean the SEC Championship. 30-10 Bama

Notre Dame at Pitt

Are you kidding me... Charlie Wiess haas given Wandstat bullentine board material. He said, all you have to do to get over a Navy lost is to go out and beat a top 12 ranked team. Sorry Charlie, Pitt's tougher, more disciplined,

Texas at Baylor

Baylor has struggled all year. It doesn't get any easier for them playing in the Big 12. Up next.... Texas. Colt McCoy will move up in the Heisman line with this performance. 52-3 Texas
Temple at Akron

Akron is terrible. But, wait....wait.....Temple is ballin. They are bowl elgible already and beat Navy who dominated Notre Dame. Temple will win this one in a blowout. 31-10 Owls

Houston at UCF

Case Keenum should be a front runner for the Heisman. 5 games of over 400 yards and 28 TD's, case closed. He'll continue his dominance against a pass deficient UCF ball club. 48-28 Houston

Indiana at Penn St

Penn St has been a h disappointment this year. The whispers of JoePa's retirement will get louder if they drop a game to Indiana. IU has been a play or 2 away from a lot of games this year. The problem is they've gotten used to it. IU will lose. 28-20 Penn ST

Mich at Wisconsin

The Wolverines have been exciting on offense but haven't had the wins to match. The Mich faithful are starting to rumble Rich Rod might not be the right guy. The AD had to come out late this week and give the coach his support. This won't work, the fans will call for Rich Rod's head at the end of 2 back to back losing seasons. 28-27 Wisconsin

UT at Miss

Miss has been a huge disappointment this year. QB Snead has under achieved and draft stock has continuously plummeted all year. The best D in the SEC is coming to town. UT amidst its recent run inn with the law will be hungry and ready to play. Kiffin must learn to bite his tongue from now on. He knows he only recruits NFL talent and not scholar athletes. Hey Lane, you get what you pay for. 20-10 UT

Clemson at NCSTATE

Russell Wilson has been on fire all year. The problem is his defense gives up as many points as he can score. Clemson will surely be able to put up big numbers behind CJ Spiller. This will be a high scoring dramatic game early, but Clemson's defense will settle down and dominate. 35-24 CU

FSU at Wake

Christian Ponder is hurt. FSU defense is terrible. Riley Skinner is playing. Wake wins. 34-28 Wake

Northwestern at Illinois

NW just upset an undefeated overrated Iowa team. They will now lose to a horrible Illinois team. The Big 10 stinks. 24-20 Ill

VTech at Maryland

VTech has to have a few things happen in order for them to get back in the ACC championship hunt. Mainly they have to win out. 38-3 VTech

Auburn at Georgia

It's official..Georgia may lose the last 3 ames of the season. If this happens. Mark Risch will be looking for a new coaching job. AUburn will win...not because they're better. But, just because Georgia's a very bad coached team right now. 34-31 Auburn

Syracuse at Louisville

Comeback player of the year..... Greg Paulus. He's had a great year considering the last time he played QB was 5 years ago. I really believe he would of been drafted had he played for four years. All this about Paulus but......the Orangemen are bad. They'll lose. 23-12 Louisville

Thursday, November 5, 2009

Bring on the Noise!!! NFL Picks

Wash at Atlanta

I know I know the Skins lose.........Not really, I've been through a very similar situation. Ownership came downstairs and told us it's gut check time. Meaning, if you don't want to play here, QUIT!! If not, then go out there and play your tail off. Dan Snyder has made that same rallying cry. Your right, Jim Zorn is no longer the head coach. Corneilus Griffin, London Fletcher, Albert Haynesworth, and Antwan Randle El are the new Head Coaches. Sounds crazy, but they will get this team going and will beat the Falcons. Skins Win

Arizona at Chicago

Chicago is already in a must win situation. They realize that they aren't just competing against Green Bay and the Vikings for a playoff spot. The NFC will be deep this year with the reemergence of San Fran. Arizona just came off a terrible game losing to the awful Panthers. Their defense has been exposed as fraud, and Cutler and the Bears should find plenty of holes to make plays against them. Bears win

Hou at Ind

Matt Schuab and the Texans have been playing very well. They are stopping people on D and Schuab has been ballin on offense. PROBLEM: Theeerrree Heeerrreee!!! The undefeated Colts that has an offense that's as potent as ever and a defense that knows how to create pressure. Colts win

Baltimore at Cincy

Bmore had a big win against an undefeated Bronco team. They destroyed there offense,, and completely shredded Denver's D. The Ravens and the Bengals run the ball well and play good D. This game comes down to QB play and Palmer still has an edge over Flacco. Begals win

KC at Jacksonville

I'ts written on the wall. The Jags are on their way out of Jacksonville, they are having their 4th blackout already this season. KC should be "blacked out" of the league because of their less than stellar play. p.s. Give MJD the DARN ball!!!!! Jags win

GB at TB

Tampa needs to continue to get better and make positive strides each game. GB needs to keep Aaron Rodgers upright. GB wins

Mia at NE

Is Miami for real? Not win it comes down to playing NE. Miami won't be able to score enough points to keep up with Brady Ball. NE wins

Car at NO

Will NO go undefeated? No, but they will blowout an one dimensional Panther team. Steve Smith scored last week so he's better now, but imagine Jake Delhomme having to throw the ball 35-40 times in a game....... He'll have to and that's why they'll lose. NO wins

Det at Seattle

Another 2 bad teams that have to play. But, we all know that Detroit's the worst. Seattle wins

Ten at San Fran

Ten has the idea finally, give the ball to Johnson and move out of his way. Vince Young will continue to improve as long as the running game can be counted on. SF has a great team but they rely on the tight end far to much. Tenn will step on D to help themselves steal a win in San Fran. Tenn wins


The Giants are on a 2 game losing streak that has been both a defensive and offensive problem. Big Blue got to get it together. They need to rush for 200 yards and take the ball away on D. SD provides a better matchup for Big Blue because they lack the offensive explosiveness the Gants have seen the past 2 games. Giants win

Dallas at Philly

They are frauds. They have a make shift group of wide outs that are beating up on bad secondaries. They have a #1 rec complaining that the QB won't throw him the ball properly. Who are we? The cowboys, america's ex-team. Philly wins

Pitt at Denver

Ex undefeated Broncos on a losing streak. Say it ain't so.....It is...Pitt will beat the Broncos up and down the field. Broncos won't make the playoffs. Pitt wins.

Want Some !! Get Some !! College Football Saturday 11/07

******UPSET ALERT******
Bama has been dominant all season. They have a ground and pound type of offense. They don't give up anything on defense. They are the quintessential Nick Sabinized football team. All the way down to the lack of QB play. Saban doesn't dwell on QB's and in most games he doesn’t have to. Only, this game is different. LSU has the identical team that BAMA has a ground and pound offensive style with a stingy defense. Bama hasn't shown the ability to consistently put up points in SEC play. After the dust settles, this game will come down to McElroy vs. Jefferson. Jefferson has the edge because of his group of dynamic receivers. McElroy still hasn't figured a way to get Julio Jones the ball, because of this, they lose. 13-10 LSU

*****UPSET ALERT*******
Navy at Notre Dame

Navy has played well all season and is already bowl legible. Notre Dame has been inconsistent and has not shown that they can consistently stop anyone. Navy almost upset Ohio State in the beginning of the season with the option attack. This attack will give Notre Dame grief and will be the reason they lose. 21-20 Navy

Vandy at Florida

The Gators lose Spikes but it won't matter for this game. Florida needs to continue to work on their passing attack in this practice game leading up to the SEC championship. 52-9 UF

UCF at Texas

Colt McCoy is ready to put on a Heisman show this game. Texas needs to continue to play well every game so they can control their own destiny. They will out match and over power a mediocre Knight team. 48-3

Cincy at Uconn

Tony Pike won't play but backup QB Collaros has shown that he can easily pick up the slack. UCONN's tragedy has made them America's team. They have shown great courage and resilience while playing better every game. Defensively, the Huskies won't be able to keep up with a very explosive Bearcat Offense. 37-23 Cincy

VTech at East Carolina
Dowdy-Fecklyn Stadium is one of the loudest, rowdiest and energetic places to play in the country. The Pirates are lead by a very talented and very savvy QB Pinkney. He can make all the throws and extend plays. This will allow the Pirates to keep the game close. VTech coming off a heart breaking lost to UNC can't wait to get back on the field. Ryan Williams will look like he's been shot out of cannon all game after losing the fumble that cost them the game last week. The problem for the Pirates is that VTech is as fast on offense as WVU. The 2nd problem is VTech can be as stingy on defense as UNC. Well, the Pirates lost to both of these teams and that's why they'll lose to VTech. 28-13 VTech

S.Carolina at Arkansas

Ryan Mallet is the best QB in the SEC. He has a pro arm and should definitely leave after this season. Arkansas is missing a playmaker on offense but make up for it with gritty play on defense. The Gamecocks will have to protect Garcia from an athletic bunch of pass rushers. Gamecocks have also given up over 200 yards a game in rushing. Offensively S.Carolina hasn't been able to put up a lot of points. These things will hurt them and cause them to lose the game.

Oregon at Stanford

Oregon has the hottest team in the country. After defeating USC the way they did, the Ducks are now involved in the BCS picture. Stanford on the other hand is riding Toby Gerheart into this game and hopefully to victory. The Ducks just have too much team speed for the Big 10 looking Stanford team. 45-17 Oregon

Wake at Georgia Tech

The Rumbling wreck have pushed their way in front of the ACC pack. Wake has shown they can play with anyone. This game will be close until the 3rd quarter GTech will pull away by then. 31-20 GTech

Ohio St at Penn St

Both teams have been disappointed by early losses. Ohio State can still win the Big 10 if they can win out the rest of the year. Joe Pa has coached a mediocre team to have only 1 loss. Daryl Clark has shown he can put up big #s consistently. Terrell Pryor has been inconsistent with his arm. For Ohio State to have a chance to win, Pryor must use his legs. 27-17 Penn St

Boise St at LaTech

Boise St has 1 win on the season. Oregon!! There is only one other team on their schedule with a winning record. BCS bound, they should be punished until they play a real schedule. 52-6 Boise ST

Northwestern at Iowa

Yep, we're in for another abysmal undefeated Iowa win. They'll be down at least until the 3rd quarter, and after that they will win in the 4th. 42-23 Iowa

USC at Arizona State
Pete Carroll is in unfamiliar territory. The Trojans will strike out with a vengeance and show that they are a better team than they showed at Oregon. 45-20 USC

Syracuse at Pitt
I can't say enough about bball player turned Cuse starting QB, Greg Paulus. He has definitely done much better than anyone expected. Pitt has a 3 piece with a biscuit, Dion Lewis, Dorin Dickerson, Bill Stull and a stingy defense. After the Cincinnati game, the nation will know their names. 34-13 Pitt

UVA at Miami

Miami's youth has caught up to them. They started out red hot and look like world beaters. Since then, they have been humanized and have to come to play every game or they will lose. UVA under Al Groh has been disappointing. But, in Al Groh fashion they can and will upset your team, just ask UNC. After a loss to Duke at home, they are in desperate need of a win. They won't get it. 27-10 Miami

Oklahoma at Nebraska

Suh of Nebraska has gotten Heisman attention at D-tackle. He's a beast. The problem with Nebraska is there offense. They can't find the consistency they had last year. The Sooners will come into Lincoln and look like a BCS contender because of their stingy D and high-powered offense. It's going to be a long game for Nebraska. Bo Pelini is now officially on the hot seat. 30-17 Oklahoma
Duke at UNC

UNC had been lethargic and inconsistent on offense. That was until they played VTech. Butch Davis opened up the offense and that translated into points for UNC. The problem that teams have against Duke is becoming too conservative. They come out and think they can just be basic and score big against Duke's D. The teams that have beat Duke this year all have been creative and constantly made big plays against Duke. Thad Lewis has been one of the best unknown players in the country this year. You don't know who his receivers are before the game, you won't know them after the game, but you will be sitting in amazement wondering who just scored all these points against us. David Cutcliff has given the Dukies a swagger that hasn't existed there. This game will come down to a nationally ranked defense vs. a nationally ranked offense. Duke will have to find a way to protect Lewis from Robert Quinn. UNC will have to figure out how to cover Duke's wide outs. There's another secret no one's talking about.....If Duke wins out, they'll be playing in Tampa for the ACC championship. UNC will underestimate Duke, and they will lose big because of it. 31-20 Duke

FSU at Clemson

CJ Spiller has his homeboys coming into town for what should be a very high scoring contest. FSU led by Christian Ponder has completely destroyed almost every defense they face while averaging 443 yards a game. Can Kyle Parker put up enough points to keep up with FSU? Parker has played well in spots but hasn't been able to put together a complete game. Clemson had my clear pick to win this game until an abysmal performance against a bad Coastal Carolina ball club. A game in which he went 7-16 with 2 picks. Parker's not getting better!!!! BJ Daniels (USF), Matt Barkley(USC), Shinski (BC), Potts(Texas Tech), and Jones (Oklahoma) are all first year QB's who continue to improve and show promise. Because of the very topsy turvy play of an inconsistent Parker, Clemson loses this matchup. 36-34 FSU

Wisconsin at Indiana

IU has a decent team, but they just haven't been able to win consistently. Wisconsin has a balanced team with a tough running and passing attack. They will win because of them. 30-20 Wisconsin

TCU at San Diego St
TCU needs Marshall Faulk to comeback and suit up in order to win this game. Sorry he's out of shape. TCU will have a dominate performance on both sides of the ball in a blow out. 42-9 TCU

Western Mich at Mich St

Western Mich plays a mini Big 10 schedule so playing at Spartan Stadium won't intimidate them. Even so they'll still lose. 41-16 Mich St

Purdue at Michigan

Purdue is terrible, yes I know they beat Ohio State but soooo what. Michigan should easily win this game because of their talented QB Forcier. 34-24 Mich

Lou at WVU

Noel Devine will insert himself into this unclaimed Heisman race sooner or later. Louisville’s weak defense should allow Devine to have a huge game. 35-17 WVU

Kansas at Kansas State

Huge rivalry game that will go to the wire. KState started out fast and still leads the division with a 3-2 record. They have since sputtered, and are struggling. Todd Reesing and the Kansas pass attack is alive and well and will be the reason for a Jayhawks victory. 24-21 Kansas

Tenn Tech at Georgia

Wheewwww, Georgia finally gets a break from tough SEC play. They should win big now. 38-13 Georgia

Maryland at NC State

NC State and Russell Wilson should get a victory. If they can stay disciplined and not shoot themselves in the foot they should win. Maryland has to play a perfect game in order to win. They can't and they won't. 24-18 NCST

Furman at Auburn

This one won't be pretty. 52-23 Auburn

Texas A&M vs. Colorado

Besides upsetting Kansas, the Buffalo's haven't played well. A&M will be ready to play and excited about putting on a show. This should help them make a run down the stretch. 41-20 A&M

OK ST at Iowa St

After being beat up and embarrassed by Texas. OK ST gets a chance to redeem themselves this week. 32-10 Oklohoma ST

Washington at UCLA

These are 2 good-bad teams going head to head. The Huskies have beat USC and Arizona but are on a 2 game skid since. The Bruins beat Tenn and Kansas St and have lost 4 straight since. These teams are very inconsistent but are really hungry for a win. This should be a very physical ball game that should come down to a play made or missed in the 4th quarter. 34-28 Huskies

New Mexico at Utah

Mike, it was a set up to give you this job. This program is in the gutter and I don't know if any coach can pull this team out of. If Locksley is able to pull them out in year 2 he should be coaching a big time program immediately after. Utah is too strong and talented on offense and will easily win this game. 63-14

Army at Air Force

This rivalry will go to Air Force. Army has been not very good on offense. The 4th ranked ground attack of Air Force will be too much for Army. 33-13 Air Force

Oregon St at Cal

Cal has been on a run winning every game since a 2 game skid. Best will have early problems playing against a tough run stop defense. Cal will stick to it and Best will prevail at the end.

Memphis at Tenn

This one should be over quickly. 38-3 Tenn

Houston at Tulsa
This game should be close......It won't the #1 offense in all of college football will run up the score as usual. 45-17 Houston

Thursday, October 29, 2009

Don't Be Scared!!! It's Sunday NFL Picks

Den at Baltimore

I still don't believe in the Broncos. Denver has been known to have fast starts and then reality hits them. Reality is #52 this week. Ravens win

Houston at Buffalo

Houston has been on a run. Their offense has been on fire. Matt Schuab is looking to continue his great play. Buffalo is looking to make a run towards the playoffs. They need TO's help. Get your popcorn ready this week. Bills win

Cle at Chicago
Cutler was dissapointing after he got some new coin. He should be able to make up for it against a weak Browns team. Bears win

Sea at Dallas
Seattles bad and they just lost pro bowl linebacker Tatupo for the season. Dallas has begin to make a push to the front of the NFC east. Cowboys win

Mia at NYJ

Sanchez will have to grow up a lot this week as long time divisional foes come to town. The Dolphins have shown they can play with anyone after playing well against the undefeated Saints. Miami wins

SF at Ind

Indianapolis has been on fire. Manning has broke a record already this season. His partner in crime is down and that should hurt a bit. SF hasn't played well since losing a heartbreaker against the Vikings. Alex Smith has his job back, but it may be a bit premature. Colts win

NYG at Philly

The biggest game in the NFC east. This game will be hard hitting with plenty of scurmishes before, during and after plays. Philly has been dominant on offense, and with the adition of LB Will Witherspoon their defense has gotten better. The Giants have been average on offense and defense. If they can't get better on D, they will lose a lot this year. Philly wins

Stl at Det

This is a tough pick. The Rams are bad.....The Lions are bad...Who's the worst. Lions win.

Oak at San Diego

The Raiders beat Philly and then lost to the Jets. They aren't good. Charger win

Jac at Tenn

Vince Young finally has gotten the nod. Maurice Jones Drew is coming to town ready to have a big day.

Minn at GB

Brets back in Green Bay. This will be a very emotinal game for him. Aaron Rodgers wants to make sure he gives Farve a bad homecoming. He will. GB wins

Car at Arizona

The Panthers still have Jake Delhomme starting at QB. Zona wins

Atl at NO

Sorry Reggie Bush, you won't go undefeated, but you should beat the Falcons. NO wins.

Breakem off Somethin Saturday!!!! College Picks 10/31

Texas vs Oklahoma St
Texas and Colt Mccoy are a little upset that there not ranked in the top. If they'll be upset, it will happen now. problem for OK State is that, the best player in the country can't suit up for them. Dez Bryant could have won the game for State.But since he's not playing, Colt McCoy rolls to victory. 30-16 Texas

Florida-Georgia at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium

The Gators have won the tough games and played very well in stretches. The Bama band riders were in a scare last week in Tuscaloosa. Now they realize how good the Gators really are. Urban Meyers will show his team Georgia rushing the field in 2007 right before they step on the field. This doesn't bode well for a struggling Georgia offense and defense. This should be Tebow's Heisman coming out party. IF U AIN'T A GATOR, UR GATOR BAIT!!!!!! 30-17 Florida

South Carolina at Tenn

Not again, we are down the stretch and Carolina has to go own the road to play a perennial SEC powerhouse. South Carolina has been a good team all year. Garcia has been a very capable QB and has made big plays at time. UT defense would definitely have the best defense in the SEC if they had a consistent offense. This team is full of confidence. They know Bama tiptoed off the field last week after they were outplayed by UT. Both defenses will be the key for each team. 17-14 UT

USC at Oregon

USC has dropped their one game for the season already. Oregon should be ready for a dog fight. They'll need to step up on defense to have a chance to win. 27-20 USC

Miami vs Wake

Miami had very high hopes this year after their fast start. Reality has set in and the youth of Miami's football team has really reared its ugly head of late. Wake had control of there destiny in the ACC. Now after losing to Clemson, they need to win 3 out of the next 4 games in order to play for the ACC championship. Wake gave up all 338 yards Navy had on the ground. Miami should feature their 2- headed running game of Cooper and Berry (James is Hurt). 40-17 Miami

Georgia Tech at Vandy

The Yellow Jackets stung the competition with stellar play by all their backs. Vandy won't give them much of a contest. 34-13 GTech

West Virginia at USF

BJ Daniels has almost averaged a 100 yards per game rushing. He's probably the most exciting player in the Big East. The exciting part of about this is he's only a freshman, and has only started 4 games in his career. WVU played a heck of a game against UCONN last week considering all of the pressure surrounding that game. This is a classic WVU team, an explosive offense with a functional defense. I don't think they'll be enough Devine intervention from RB Noel Devine to get WVU past USF. 38-34 USF

IU at Iowa

Let's start talking about it. Iowa, Big Ten Champs. Iowa, playing in the National Championship game. It could happen. They'll win ugly, but they'll beat IU this week. Quiz...Name 2 players that play for Iowa?..........Too late ,you lose. 28-13 Iowa


2 of the best-worst teams in the ACC are going head to head. NCST has QB Russell Wilson, who is a very dynamic player that can make all the throws.The receiving core for NCSTate may be the best in the conference. They also have one of the best d-ends in the country, Willie Young. Then why are they sooooooooooo bad? Christian Ponder is arguably one of the best QB's in the ACC and has been on an offensive explosion.
He has 2 receivers in Reed and Owens that can be matched up with anyone in the country. But defensively, yep I said it..... Defensively Florida State may be the worst in the country. They give up points like summer rain in Florida....very often.This game will go down to who can score the most points. 38-28 FSU

New Mexico St at Ohio State

Terell Pryor has to continue to make progress at QB if OState will make a run for a national championship next year. They should easily beat the Aggie's. 41-6 Ohio State

Rutgers AT UCONN

Rutgers has won 5 games. No teams they have beaten has a winning record. In short, they haven't played anyone. Uconn has lost three games by the combined total of 8 points. This is a hard nose team that's playing with a focus and a purpose. This determination should help them get a win. 23-17 Uconn

Kansas at Texas Tech

Mike Leach is an offensive machine. Kansas may have ruined their chances of capturing the north title. This will be a high scoring contest. 34-28 TT

Cal at Arizona St

Javid Best has gotten back on track the past two weeks. He has found a partner also in Shane Vereen who has rushed for 170 yards in the last 2 games. Aizona St has been struggling. 30-17 Arizona St

Purdue at Wisconsin

Purdue is on a 2-game win streak. Big deal! They won't beat Wisconsin. 24-9 Wisc

Ole Miss at Auburn

Auburn caught Tenn early. Besides that, the other wins weren't notable. Hiring Gene Chizik was a mistake and the Tiger faithful will begin chanting that after this 4th consecutive loss. Read these thoughts by an angry ISU fan...
"Hey guys, Cyclone fan here. Not trying to poke open any wounds, or anything like that. Auburn has actually been, over the years, one of the few SEC schools (along with Miss. St) I would pull for, as I have deep respect for land grant schools that are paired up with another in-State school with incredibly obnoxious fans (I hate Alabama).

That said, as you might understand, I have a strong distaste for Gene Chizik. I think he's a spineless coward for the way he left our program with out giving his players more than 2 minutes of his time. That said, at the time we hired him, I was star struck. I thought he was going to do great things at ISU before leaving for the SEC. Turns out, he hired his fishing buddies for coordinators and didn't realize that when you don't have 5 star players at every position that you actually have to coach them, not just stand around and bark at them.

When he hired Malzahn down here, it looked like he had learned his lesson that he's not going to just win games because he's "Gene XX Chizik" and he needed to be surrounded by other good coaches. Then he matched his career win total in his first 5 games. Now it looks like the Gene Chizik we know and love has reared his head. It's obvious that he can't really coach that well, as Paul Rhoads has gotten as many wins in 8 weeks out of "his" (half of our team was recruited by McCarney) players as he got in 2 years. Is that the consensus down here, or do some still think he can get Auburn Football back to where it was? I feel bad for you guys because I've always respected Auburn, and Chizik is such a slimy snake oil salesman. You guys don't deserve that crap. Hopefully your AD will wake up at the end of the year and call Turner Gill back. He should be pacing your sidelines as we speak."
34-17 Ole Miss wins

Nebraska at Baylor
Cornhusker pride will sprout up this week in a dominate performance by Suh. 34-24 Nebraska

South Miss at Houston

Houston is to good on ofense to lose against Southern Miss. 30-20 Houston

Mizz at Colorado
Colorado is bad. Yes, they beat Kansas but they are still horrible. 28-13 Mizz

Duke vs UVA

Which Al Groh tram will show up Saturday? Well I know who will show up for Duke...The ACC's best QB will be there and will throw for over 300 yards. Because of this Duke wins. 38-23 Duke

Coastal Carolina at Clemson
CJ Spiller for Heisman....He'll need a at least a 200 yard rushing game or a 450 yard total yard game to be serious about it. 52-13 Clemson

San Jose State at Boise State

Boise St is on their way to undefeated season. They only played one game this year and that was against Oregon. They should be punished for this. 48-3 Boise St

Central Mich at BC

Central Mich is a good team. This will be a good test for them. The ACC needs to prove to the rest of the country that its a big time conference. BC and ACC reputation is on the line this game. 24-17 BC

Mich vs Illinois

No one wishes to be Ron Zook right now. He can't get his team to compete. 30-17 Mich

Temple at Navy
24-20 Navy

Oregon St at UCLA
How in the world did the Bruins beat Tenn? They haven't won very much since. They have been on a four game skid since their last win. Oregon State's coming to town so it won't get any easier for the Bruins. 20-14 Oregon ST

Penn St at Northwestern
45-23 Penn ST

Tulane at LSU
28-3 LSU

Mich ST vs Minn
Eric Deckers hurt. Minn can't score enough without him. 28-23 Mich St

Friday, October 23, 2009

This is the NFL !!!! Check out the picks.

Green Bay at Cleveland
Green Bay had a bye week against Detroit. This is there 2nd bye in a row. Cleveland and Eric Mangini aren't a good match. They benched a guy (Brady Quinn) who never won his starting job anyway. Then, they get rid of the very best player (Braylon Edwards) on their team. They'll be luck to win 5 games this year. Green Bay wins.
p.s. Aaron Rodgers is better than Farve.

SF at Houston
Frank Gore should be back this week, and he's greatly needed. SF should be motivated to win, having gone on a bye-week after being blown out. Houston has got a little momentum and I think will begin to see who's real and who's fake.

SD at KC
The Chargers are going through crisis mode. They lost another game they should've won. And it looks like Denver may not implode this year. KC has a little swagger now, coming off of their first win this year.But, they aren't playing the Skins this week. SD wins.

Colts at STL
Is it me, or is the Rush Limbaugh talk about owning the Rams the best thing that's happened to them all year. The Rams are awful. Limbaugh just announced on his show yesterday, he doesn't want them anymore.(just kidding)
Colts win.

NE at TB
Tampa will be in trouble all year. NE wins this one easily. NE wins

Min at Pitt
Farves magic has to phase out soon. He's old and getting tired. The Steelers have not regained their swag back from last year. The terrible towels will be out, and the Vikings will be out in the weather. This advantage goes to the Steelers. Steelers win.

Buf at Carolina
After a victory in Tampa last week you would think the Panthers have a little momentum. Instead, they're complaining after a win about touches. Steve Smith wants the darn ball!!!! Only thing is, who can throw it to him....Buffalo wins.

NYJ at Oak
Just win the Jets thought the wheels were coming of the comes Oakland to save the day. Jets Win.

Chicago at Cincy
This should be a very physical game. Yes, Cincy's physical now. Cedric Benson has changed the complexion their offense. Jay just got paid this week and has to let the Bear faithful know that management made the right choice. Bears win.

Atl at Dallas

The falcons are for real. They are built to win tough games. Dallas has Romo, and...well Romo still isn't proven. Atl wins.

NO at Mia
The Saints will run through the weak Dolphin secondary. This game should not be close. Saints waaaayyyy to explosive on offense. Saints win.

Ari at NYG
Kurt Warner circled this game on his calender. Big Blue, Kurt remembers. The Saints exploited an undisciplined Giants secondary,and the Cards will follow suit. Big Blue needs to run the ball and hog the clock to win. Arizona wins.

Phi at Wash
For all the reasons you already know about..... Philly wins.

Thursday, October 22, 2009

Buckle ur chin strap and Hit somebody Saturday!!!!

Florida State vs North Carolina
Who's going to show up?????? Will it be 186 QB rating, 2 TD, TJ Yates that crushed East Carolina. Or, will it be the Yates that threw 2 interceptions and was completely abysmal against an UVA team that lost to William & Mary. If you're Florida St, will you get the defensive effort of the BYU game in which the Seminoles dominated the #6 offense in the country. Or you may get the defense that has been killed ever sense. Florida St 24-10

Tenn vs Bama
Lane Kiffin will lean on dad Monty again this week. Kiffin will have to deal with new Heisman mention and front runner Mark Ingram. Ingram has had a great year and continues to dominate teams with his fast, tough running style. Alabama will be better than UT everywhere on the field. Ingram ability will be put to the test against a nasty UT defense. The most interesting and unknown tidbit about this game is that the best running back won't be Mark Ingram. It's really Montarrio Hardesty, he already has a pro style. He runs with great vision , power, and balance. He will be a first round pick and will have the best game at RB. 27-13 Bama

Florida vs Miss St

Miss St has gotten better. Playing against the toughest defense in the country will be hard for the "listed" 5'10 Miss St QB. This one won't be close. 48-3 Florida

Georgia Tech vs UVA
Paul Johnson's offense has been off the chain. #1 in the nation in rushing offense. UVA won't stop it, no one will. You have to manage an offense like Georgia Tech's. Get them in 3rd and long and force them to pass. UVA will keep it close but, Jim Grove won't be able to pull the miracle. Georgia Tech 28-20

South Florida vs Pittsburg

Pitts a very solid team. They have a good offense and defense. Not a flashy team but hard nose Bama-like without the talent. South Fl has a big play offense and defense. They make plays , but can't seem to sustain drives. This game boils down to solidness vs flashiness. Pitt 17-10

Clemson vs Miami

The U is locked and loaded and now in control of there own destiny. Jacory Hariss has told his teammates not to read the papers or watch news focused on Miami's success. His leadership has been remarkable as a true sophomore. Clemson has been in every game they have played. There offense has found a way to move the football and scored 38 points last week. CJ Spiller is coming back to the crib and looking to have a huge game. He'll make a fuss, but Clemson will lose. 34-20 Miami

Min vs Ohio State
Terell Pryor has not developed into the player we all thought he'd be. Ohio State is wost than we all thought they would be. Jim Tressel should start to get concerned, if he doesn't fire some folk on his staff, he'll be on the hot seat next year. Minnesota has big play Eric Decker that will make some plays. But, an angry Buckeye squad won't let it stay close. 41-13 OState

Penn St vs Michigan
*****UPSET ALERT*****
Rich Rod has changed the play of the Big Ten and he doesn't even have all the players he needs yet. Penn State has let Joe Pa down losing to a tough Iowa team in Happy Valley. He's in for another let down this week, because Penn States D won't be able to handle the unconventional , crafty Forcier. 28-24 Michigan

******UPSET ALERT*****
TCU hasn't been that dominant on defense. They have been average on offense. BYU is explosive on offense. ON D they have been solid and always seem to come up with plays when they need them. This is TCU's only test of the year and if they lose they'll kill their BCS chances. 24-20 BYU

Auburn vs LSU

Gene Chizik, has everyone forgotten.... He still shouldn't be Auburn's coach. Who have they beaten? That's right, Tennesee... Oh yeah, Tenn ain't that good. They are about to start losing every week and then will hear about Chizik again.They'll lose the last 5 out of 6 games and then we will see if the Tiger faithful will be ready to get em out of there. LSU will ground and pound Auburn into submission. 27-17 LSU

UCONN vs West Virginia
All of hearts out to this Uconn team. Having lost a teammate has to be the hardest thing that a team can go through. Jasper Howard will be thought of constantly before, during, and after the game. This focus can cause the team to make plays or miss plays. Hopefully they'll make them. West Virginia has the same problem year after year, high octane offense with a low maintenance defense. Because of this a motivated and a country backed UCONN will prevail in victory. 23-21 UCONN

Duke vs Maryland
Thad Lewis has been lights out. Now up for the Johnny Unitas Award, Lewis is hoping to change the modern history of Duke football. He's playing as well as any QB in the country. Maryland has been bad. Yes they've won a few games but it's hard to tell how they did it. They play bad on D and turnover the ball on offense. Thad Lewis will walk the ball up and down the field as Duke wins in a blowout. 42-20 Duke

Illinois vs Purdue

Roon Zook is in position to go 1-11. Purdue is coming off one of it's program
biggest victories.Purdue will win this easily because of the disappointing year of Juice Williams. 28-14 Purdue

Oklahoma vs Kansas
Kansas perfect season was ruined last week. Probably because they were looking ahead to Oklahoma. Well they'll find what they were looking for. Oklahoma's mad and that spells trouble for Kansas. 38-20 Oklahoma

Arkansas vs Ole Miss
This should be one of the best games of the weekend. Ole Miss came into the season with National Championship hopes. They were quickly brought down to earth after being outplayed in South Carolina.Snead and McCluster are the reasons for Ole Miss's dose of reality. There numbers are down, Ole Miss is struggling. They've won 4 games but haven't beat anyone. Arkansas on the other hand has played every game tough and could have won any game they have lost except against Bama. Ryan Mallet will continue to increase his draft stock while Snead will continue to be forgotten. 33-24 Arkansas

OK ST vs Baylor
Baylor is still Baylor. Preseason banter was just that, talk. OKST has played well, they lost a game they shouldn't have, but have bounced back and clearly have a very dominant offense. Dez Bryant who would've been the clear Heisman choice, still can't play because of the NCAA. OKST won't need him for Baylor. 27-17 OKST

Oregon vs Washington
Washington has ruined USC's season but their season isn't going well at all. Oregon will win. 28-13 Oregon

Texas at Mizz
Texas needs to make a BCS statement. Look for a basketball score. 52-10 Texas

BC vs Notre Dame
Clausen has had a great year. BC has been hard to put a finger on. Notre Dame has been consistent all year. 31-13 ND

Iowa vs Mich St
Iowa has been a tough football team all year. They know how to win. This game won't be pretty, but Iowa will win. 24-17 Iowa

Vandy vs South Carolina

South Carolina has been playing well this year. They've already beaten top ranked Ole Miss, and played Bama well. The hardest stretch of their schedule will begin after playing Vandy. They need to play well so that they'll be ready for the last quarter of their season. 28-14 South Carolina

Louisville vs Cincy

Steve Kragthorpe,Louis's head coach, is on his way out the door. Just a few years ago UL's had leapt into national recognition. Now no one cares about them again. 2 wins, he has to leave. Cincy's Pike shouldn't play and should be given rest. They won't need him against UL. 34-10 Cincy

Iowa St vs Nebraska
After being embarrassed last week. Nebraska wins this on easily. 31-17

Texas A&M vs Texas Tech

The QB has changed but the results remain the same. Texas Tech will outscore A&M on the way to victory. 41-28 Texas Tech

Wash St vs Cal
I haven't forgot about Jahvid Best. He'll get back into the Heisman picture with a 200 yard day. 37-20 Cal

Friday, October 16, 2009

Once again, It's ON!! NFL Picks

Houston vs Cincy
Who said Marvin Lewis is on the hot seat? Not me Cincy is looking like one of the best teams in the league to this point. They'll be Houston in a statement game. Cincy wins.

Det vs Green Bay
The Lions are still the Lions even though they have won a game. Green Bay wins

Bal vs Min
This game will come down to Bret Farve vs B-Mo's secondary. I give Ed Reed and the Ravens defense the edge.

The G-Men know how to play D. NO has been lights out on offense. Funny thing is, Drew Brees doesn't really have a significant statistical advantage over Manning. Because of this and the Giants D. Giants win.

Cle vs Pitt
Pitt's ready to get there Championship run in gear. The Browns are a great team to use to get your confidence to that level. Pitt wins.

Car vs Tampa
The battle of the scrubs. I've been there before. Who cares who wins? Carolina wins because of a dominate run game.

KC vs Skins
Zorns job is on the line. There's finger pointing from the players. The Skins are playing another bad team. This spells disaster. KC wins

Philly vs Oak
This one won't be close. Philly wins. ps. give Vick some time.

Arizona vs Seattle
Where did Seattle offense come from last week. Problem is, they don't know either. Mike Holmgren sure knew when to bail. Zona wins.

Ten vs NE
We want Young! We want Young! Until they make the switch they'll continue to lose. NE wins.

Buf vs NYJ
Trade T.O. Why would they get him and not throw him the ball EVERYTIME!! I thought it was the real verdict wasn't out on the Jets yet. They'll be exposed this week in a lost. Buf wins.

Chi vs Atl
Atlanta has a great team. They just don't have that special guy. That got guy. The guy when you need a play, you know you can count on. The Bears have Jay Cutler. He'll be enough. Bears win.

Den vs San Diego

The Chargers cut their starting saftey. Who does that in the middle of the season? Things aren't going right their. In Denver , nothings going wwrong. But I still don't believe. Chargers win.

Hit or Be Hit Saturday!!!!

OU vs Texas

The Cotton Bowl. This reflects the Western Conference Championship. Texas led by Colt McCoy will be explosive and ready to beat the Sooners. They haven't played a close game all year besides beating an offensive Texas Tech.The only downside to Texas offense is a more conservative Colt McCoy led runing game. The Sooners, have already lost a game to an okay BYU team. Definsively the Sooners play lights out, and Sam Bradfoords back. Bradford is back in a groove after a solid game last week. OU will be too quick on offense and too powerful on D to lose to a fantastic Colt McCoy. 45-38 OU

Bama vs South Carolina

Bama..Big..Big..Big...Fast...Discipline...Run...Run...Run again...Run....Pass...Run some more...Defense...Defense....Defense...Defense!!!! This is the game the Gamecocks have waited for. To get respect you must take it. 5 and 1 sounds some how tooooo familiar. They will lose this game but I think the most important game of there season is next 5 weeks. They can't put their entire season on the line this game. Bama 24-6

Arkansas vs Florida

If u aint a gator, your gator bait!!! Who needs Tebow when you have the #1 D in the country. 30-13 Florida

Ohio State vs Purdue

Purdue is terrible. Boy they need Drew Brees this weekend. OState 52-10

Virginia Tech vs Georgia Tech

The triple option can't be stopped if run the Paul Johnson way. But you don't have to stop it, all you must do is limit them to 3 points and make them lose yards on early downs. Use the Miami blueprint, be patient and know that they will wiin their share of downs. Just don't give up the big play. GTech's problem is their defense or lets say lack of. VTech will win this because their sound defensive play. It's now time to start mentioning VTech in the National Championship picture. 28-16 VTech

Iowa vs Wiscousin

**Upset Alert**Wiscousin has been a consistent team all year. Tough nosed offense and Defense.Iowa has been clearly the best team in the Big Ten but against out of conference talent thhey've been inconsistent. It's time for them to lose a game and sadly they will. Thus making the BCS National Championship picture clearer. 16-17 Badgers

Wake Forest vs Clemson

The Clemson faithful still don't think Wake belongs on the field with them. News Flash..... Wake has won the ACC title in the modern era!! Clemson has talent in spots. Of course CJ Spiller, and the secondary leads the charge. After that they have a lot of OVERATED players who coulda, woulda, shoulda, if it weren't for Tommy Bowden and Dabo Sweeny. Yep the Tigers are ready to fire another coach, but finally I agree with them. The coaching Staffs are the one's who told the fans that the players they had were good enough to win. So I agree, Fire them all!! Wake is coming to Clemson with a smart and very well coached team led by the 3rd best QB in the league, Riley Skinner. Skinner is a wiley vet that makes the right decisions most of the time. Clemson has to depend on a defense that lets up in is almost ineffective in there pass rush. Ofensively, when you have a QB that averages 5.7 yards an attempt, that doesn't help your cause. I know if your a Tiger fan you have to be optimistic. But as a College football fan, it's hard not to be pessimistic. 24-17 Wake

Georgia vs Vanderbilt

Vandy has know magic this year. Georgia will win and not celebrate this year. If they do Mark Rick will have them run sprints before they hit the showers. 48-10 Ga

USC vs Notre Dame

USC is primed and ready to take a fall. This is probably there weakest team in 10 years. They'll still have 10 wins , but they aren't a strong USC team. Nortre Dame has the best team since Ty Willingham's 9 or 10 win season. This game comes down to Charlie Weiss being able to win the big one. He can't. 36-20 USC

Texas Tech vs Nebraska

****Upset Aert*** Nebraska is #14 in the country in pass defense. The problem is they haven't played Kansas, Oklahoma, or Texas. This week Nebraska's playing the most prolific passing program in college football.Mike Leach get's it done!! 45-36 TT

Cincy vs USF

Cincy's Pike has had a fantastic year. Pike and the Cincy has led the Big East in just about every offensive catagory. USF on the otherhand has lost the most prolific QB in this school's history. That would be a problem except if his backup wasn't BJ Daniels. Daniels already runs the ball better, but will make the Bulls faithful forget about Grothe before he leaves. Football 101 states if both offenses are good look at the defense. Cincy's defense is weak. USF's D, led by Selve and Allen will have a big night against Pike. 38-27 USF

Pitt vs Rutgers

Once Pitt gets more speed in their program, they're going to be something to deal with nationally. For now they'll keep being another good Big East program and will easily beat up Rutgers. 27-10 Pitt

Miami vs UCF

Jacory Harris and the crew will make it do what it do. Nice new stadium Knights. 48-13 Miami

NC State vs BC

After a 49-28 lost to Duke, State will be more than ready to prove that they aren't overated. BC will be trying to stay alive in atlantic division that is just plain awful. 13-9 State

Cal vs UCLA

All is not lost, Cal still has Best. 27-23 Cal

Kansas vs Colorado

The Buffalo's still aren't back. Do you remember back in the days when the Big 12 consisted of Nebraska vs Colorado? Sorry, this is the year of the JayHawk. It won't be a close one. 42-10 KU

UVA vs Mary

Who cares who wins.... my bad, the atlantic division of the ACC is atrocious and even UVA a team that lost to William and Mary is still alive. UVA 16-10

Houston vs Tulane
Houston's way to explosive on offense. They should win convincingly. 35-17 Houston

Kentucky vs Auburn

Kentucky is a good team. They just happen to play in the hardest league in the coountry. 28-21 Auburn

Stanford vs Arizona

What happened to Zona? It's time for a coaching change again. Stanfords running game will be to much for the Wildcats. 24-13 Stanford

U might not respect the Player but u have to respect Thad's Game

Thad Lewis's emergence at Duke began 3 years ago. Originally from Florida Lewis was a coveted recruit of Duke. He was brought in as a program changer. Early on , although Lewis shined, the Duke team couldn't win. The last two years Lewis and Erron Riley joined together to have the best unknown tandem in the ACC. Lewis stats up to this point have not only been the best in the ACC, but also top fifteen in most categories in the nation. Lewis had a bad couple of games in which he had an ankle injury that definitely slowed him down. But now that he's a 100%, nothing barring an injury should be able to get in his way.
Yes, Jacory Harris does play in the ACC but Lewis is better. He clearly has better numbers, but that only tells you a small part of the story. 7 out of the 8 players Jacory Hariss throws to will play in the NFL. No one Lewis throws to will probably play in the NFL. Thad Lewis has matched up against 2 of the most dominate defense's in the ACC and has ripped them. He's done this to the tune of 360,460 passing yards and 8 TD's. Lewis has had 3 games in which he threw for more than 350 yards. This guy has just hit his stride and the ACC will know his name by the end of the year because he will be the MVP of the ACC. Don't respect the player, just respect Thad's game!!

Sunday, Game Day 10/11

The 1st quarter of the NFL season is over and now it's time for teams to turn there season around or continue their dominance. Let's look and see who'll be doing what...

Cincy vs B-Mo

The ravens have been exploited in the passing game this year. This game means more to a Bengal team who normally fades towards the end of the season. Ochocinco will start his Hawaii campaign with a huge game in a Bengals win.

Browns vs Buffalo

Indecision at QB, can it get any worse. Sure, trade the best player on your team to a
conference foe. The Browns are bad and ofcourse they'll lose.

Wash vs Carolina

The Skins won't lose to another bad team. If they do, Zorn will begin to pack his bags because he'll surely recieve a pink slip.The Panthers need a change and everyone knows where that change should be. Why won't Fox pull the trigger. As long as Jake plays, Panthers lose. The Skins win

Pitt vs Det

Will the real Pittsburg Steelers please stand up. They will against the bad Lions. Pitt wins.

Dallas vs KC

Who won't beat KC. Dallas may be primed and ready for an upset. They won't be, Big D wins.

Oakland vs NYG

These are those kinds of games that the Giants would lose in the past. An easy game on paper and a tender footed Eli. I smell an upset. Oakland wins.

Bucs vs Philly

Can it get any harder for the Bucs. Yep, they're playing the Eagles. Oh, and by the way, the Don is back. Mcnabb will throw for 300 yds in a blow out.

Minn vs STL

Minn will blow out the Rams. Anything else?

Atl vs SF

Huge game with future playoff implications. SF have a new weapon because they just signed 1st round pick Michael Crabtree. But Vernon Davis will a difference as usual. But, because of a often injured Frank Gore, the Falcons win.

Houston vs Arizona

Arizona will begin their playoff run against an unsure Houston team.

NE vs Denver

Brady is getting back up to speed. The Broncos have squeezed by into victories twice this season. Their luck will run out against a well coached very talented NE team. NE wins.

Jacs vs Sea

Boy, what happened to Seattle.The Jags will continue a push towards the playoffs and try to give the city of Jacksonville a reason to keep them there. Jags win.

Ind vs Ten

It's time for a QB change in Tenn.If the roles were reversed Young would have been benched a week ago. Do the right thing, give Kerry a seat. Jeff Fisher won't. Titans lose!!

NYJ vs Dolphins

NYJ are primed and ready for an upset. New addition in Braylon Edwards and unreal play by a rookie QB. Reality will set in down by the beach this week. Miami wins.

Thursday, October 8, 2009

Saturday Football Picks 10/10

Florida vs LSU
Two undefeated SEC titans battling in the Bayou. The Tigers have been inconsistent but always find a way to win. Florida still hasn't hit their National Championship stride. They'll need to show up ready to play and began their bid for another National Championship. 42-17 UF

Bama vs Ole Miss
**Upset Alert** just kidding. Ole miss won't be ranked after this week. Ole Miss, "you are the weakest link,goodbye." 30-10 BAMA

BC vs Va Tech
VTech didn't play well against Duke. They gave up 360 passing yards which exposed a very overated secondary. BC won't be able to take advantage of this because they only average 176 yards a game in the air. Because of this, BC loses. 27-13 VTech

Auburn vs Arkansas
Arkansas has played themselves into a one game season. Houston Knutt has always been fought back when his back is against the wall. Auburn's offense has led this team this year which has secretly put their defense in cruise control. They haven't beat,but have essentially outscored all of their opponents. This perfect season ends against Arkansas. 34-31 Arkansas

Ohio State vs Wiscounsin
OState has been on a roll since losing to USC. They'll keep it up against an undefeated untested Wiscounsin. 33-20 OState

Oregon vs UCLA
Oregon wants a rematch against Boise St. They won't get it but they will probably take it out on a weak UCLA. 27-9 Oregon

Baylor vs Oklahoma
Baylor will compete early but Oklohoma will outlast them in a blow out. 45-17 OK

Duke vs NC State
The unpredictable ACC, where it has turned into an "any given saturday" atmosphere. Because of this, Duke led by a ACC leading Thad lewis air attack beats State. 36-28 Duke

Mich St vs Illinois
The Juice isn't lose anymore. Ron Zook has benched him. Bad idea, bad coaching,terrible leadership. Their season is over. 41-13 Mich St

Georgia vs Tenn
Lane, Monty told you there'd be days like this. Tenn is bad. They are at least 2 years away. Lane has shown he can't keep his team up and ready to play every week. If he could, they'd be 4-1 with that lost being to Florida. Georgia has played well as a team and will be even better next year. 17-13 Georgia

Maryland vs Wake
Wake beat NC State, Maryland beat Clemson. Who knows who'll win this game.... I do, Wake.
23-20 Wake

OKSt vs Texas A&M
Another Big 12 wild western shootout. The only problem for OKST, they're missing their 6 shooter Dez Bryant. To bad, they lose. 31-20 A&M

Kentucky vs South Carolina
Kentucky is on a 2 game skid. The positive side of that, any team in the country who had Florida, Alabama in back to back weeks would also be on a losing sreak. South Carolina struggled with SCST in the first half only leading 10-7. That doesn't bode well playing a Kentucky team that played Bama respectively. 27-21 Kentucky

Georgia Tech vs Florida St
GTech has played as well as any team in the country lately. The Paul Johnson offense has been hitting on all cylinders. GTech's D has been dominant as well. Florida St has played as bad as any team in the country. And the Bowden turmoil can't help their cause at all. Because of this, State will be unpredictable as usual and play the best game of the year and beat Tech. 28-17 FSU

Miss St vs Houston.
Miss St will be tooooo s-l-o-w for the Cougar high octane offense. 45-20 Houston

Michigan vs Iowa
Iowa is the srongest team in the Big 10. Rich Rod and Forcier will have a few tricks up their sleve to try to steal a win at Iowa. 21-18 Iowa

UConn vs Pitt
Another tough Big East battle that will be decided by one score. Pitt has the tougher team with a gritty D. 24-17 Pitt

Miami vs FAMU
The U finally gets a break. They'll easily win the game, but will definately lose the half time show against the Marching 100.

Indiana vs UVA
UVA fooled us by beating a struggling UNC last week. Their run will end sat against IU. 23-20 IU

Washington vs Arizona
Are you serious, a 2-3 team beat the mighty Trojans. Yep, and locker hasn't been able to get the Huskies to play consistent since. Arizona should help there cause becase at 3-1, they still haven't played anyone except Iowa in a loss. 38-27 Wash

The ACC, Not Again..

Can someone say deja vu...The ACC was just in this situation last year. An undefined juggernaut with any team able to win any matchup. Miami has separated itself for now but who knows, anything can happen in this conference. BC who can't move the ball at Clemson, beats FSU. Maryland, who lost to Mid Tenn St, convincingly beats an flustered Clemson team. Virginia Tech dismantled an unbeatable Miami only to go to Duke an give up 360 passing yards while only winning by 8. UNC was ranked and looked as if they would compete for their division title. Now, they are on a 2 game skid after getting beat up by GTech and a struggling UVA. Wake Forest has to be added to the 1st class list after a early win against Stanford who has since beat Washington and UCLA. Wake also beat an NC State team who many thought would be a force in the conference this year.
The ACC doesn't deserve very much respect. They haven't earned any. Miami has proven they can play with anyone in the country. But, everyone else is inconsistent at best. When studying all the teams in the ACC you come up with a very simple conclusion. LACK OF DISCIPLINE. Besides VaTech, teams in the ACC can't stay focused. Whether it's a busted coverage or a personel foul, these teams find a way to give the game away.
How do you fix this? It's easy, more situational reps and experience. You can't make a freshman play like a senoir but through plenty of situational reps, you can make him a mid-year sophomore. Coaches have to keep the players focused on the situations. For instance, 3rd and 16 and the receiver runs a 13 yard route. Or the defender jumps a 6 yard route and gives up the 16 yard route. If each player was aware of the situational down and distance, they wouldn't make these very correctable mistakes.
In order for the ACC to gain the respect they crave. They must earn it by winning the games they are suppose to win.

Thursday, October 1, 2009

This is the NFL

B-MO vs New England
Brady's ready to go and B-Mo's defense has gotten back to its dominant ways. Their secondary is weak and New England will take advantage of them. New England wins.

Tampa vs Wash
Raheem Morris was setup, bamboozled ,led astray. Thought he'd won the lottery win he became Tampa's head coach. He inherited a very BAD team who might win 3 games this year. This won't be one of them as Washington's Jim Zorn will have to exit stage left if he loses back to back games to 2 of the worst teams in the league.
Wash wins

Tenn vs Jacksonville
This can't be the Titans of last year. They had a terrible off seaon and didn't get any better. Will the Titan fans began to chant Vince Young's name to give them a spark. Fisher needs to try something to get his team in the win column.The Jaguars are solid but need play makers in the passing game to make a run for the playoffs. Jags win

Houston vs Oakland
Is Russell this bad? Is it the team? Let's just stay safe and blame Al Davis. Houston wins.

Detroit vs ChiTown
Detroit wins!Detroit wins! Detroit wins! Sorry, got a little bit carried away from last week. Jay Cutler begins his bid for the pro bowl by having a great performance.
Bears win.

Cincy vs Cleveland
Cincy's undefeated if not for a bad bounce against Denver. They will prove they are a better team when they face the confused Browns. Mangini,no Spurrier, no I'm confused. What do you do if Anderson has a bad game? Cincy wins.

Seattle vs Indy
Indy's on a roll. Seattle's on the skid. Indy wins.

KC is bad and needs to clean house next season. Did they really cut Amani Toomer? They have one WR on their team who might be better than Toomer. This how bad teams are bad.Giants win.

How can anyone bet against Drew Brees. Especially now that he has a solid defense. They will beat the blitz and make Sanchez have to play catch up. NO wins.

Buf vs Mia
Chad's out, Miami can't stop anyone on D. There offensive production is poor. Buf wins.

Dallas vs Den
Denver's undefeated. They play solid D and productive offense. They play smart and win the field position battle. I still don't believe. Dallas run game and defense will prove too much for Denver. Dallas wins.

St. Louis vs San Fran
How does Singletary's niners handle adversity? They are playing the Rams, and will surely get back to their winning ways.

San Diego vs Pitt
Pitts not looking like last year yet . The Chargers need a statement win to give them the confidence to say we can play at a very high level. Chargers win.

Green Bay vs Minn
Bret Farve is back. Adrian Peterson is running wild. Vikings defense is playing at a high level. But, Green Bay is one of the most balanced teams in the league. Green bay beats the Vikes and Wins the Division.

What time is it!!! Game time!

Oklahoma vs Miami
After being knocked back to earth by Va Tech, Miami looks to get their mojo back. The Sooners have been balling since dropping an ugly one against BYU. The clash of the battered titans will be settled by great QB and special teams play. That's why the U will come through. 27-17 Miami

Virginia Tech vs Duke
The Wade Wacko's will be in full effect and will cheer on their Blue Devil's. However, after last week's drubbing of Miami. The only chance the Blue Devil's have is catching Va Tech sleeping.... knocked out cold.. 35-17 Tech

LSU vs Georgia
LSU continues to move up in the polls with a mediocre ball club. They will be exposed by a battle tested Bulldog team that has learned how to fight. 27-13 Georgia

USC vs Cal
Too much defense from USC. Not enough offensive weaponry from Cal. 34-17 USC

Auburn vs Tenn
This will be a knockem sockem old school SEC battle. Tenn offense will try to lose it but their defense will keep them in the game. But with a resurgence of Auburn's offense, the should score enough to win. 13-7 Auburn

Michigan vs Michigan St
Rich Rod wolverines are on a roll. Their making play after play while refusing to lose. I think they may run out of steam this week against a scrappy well coached Michigan St.

Bama vs Kentucky
What do you do against a team who's 2nd team freshman tailback can start anywhere in the country? I don't know.So goes the dilemma of Kentucky's coaching staff. Bama has been the most consistent team in the country and the tide will continue to roll. 40-7Bama

Washington vs Notre Dame
What can you expect out of Washington. They beat USC and then lose to Stanford. ND has played consistent and continues to improve. The Huskies no how to get up for the big game they'll beat ND. 20-13 Wash

Clemson vs Maryland
What can u say about Maryland....... I'm waiting.... Clemson should win this one with no problem or the Clemson faithful may be saying Dabo has to go. 30-13 Clemson

UNC has to get back on track after being embarrassed in the ATL. They will because UVA may win 2 games all year. 42-10 UNC

Ga Tech vs Miss St
Tech's ground and pound is back. More importantly their defense has gotten very stingy. This spells trouble for a Miss ST team who has trouble against the run. 31-10 Ga Tech

Pitt vs Lou
This will be a great game even though Louisville's 1-2. The Big East is clearly the most competitive league in the country top to bottom. Both teams have similar hard nose styles with Pitt being a little more gritty. I think this game will come down to field position and special teams. 24-21 Lou

Utah St vs Brigham Young
This one will be over fast. BYU's BCS birth depends on them blasting every opponent left on their schedule. They will. 50-17 BYU

Wisconsin vs Minn
Wisc runs and throws deep to Toon on the way to a solid win. 20-17

USF vs Syracuse
Daniels and the Bulls will buck the Orangeman while remaining undefeated.31-13

Arkansas vs Texas A&M
The Razorbacks are glad to be out of SEC play for at least a week. They'll show why the SEC is the best conference in the country when they beat an undefeated A&M team.
24-20 Ark

Penn St vs Illinois
Penn St urned out to be a pretender for the national championship. They also shouldn't be invited to the Rose Bowl after winning out the rest of the season.

FSU has been up and down all year and a victory over BC won't tell us anything. 35-10FSU

NC State vs Wake
State hasn't lost since the opening week. Wake has taken a step back this season and lost to a struggling BC. State should win this one decisively. 27-9 State

Ohio State vs Indiana
Indiana should have beat Michigan in the big house. They left everything on the field. Because of this they won't have enough left in the tank against OState. 33-20 OState

Miss vs Vandy
Vandy is Vandy again and all the magic has gone. That's the only reason an overrated Ole Miss will beat them. 28-10 Ole Miss

SCST vs South Carolina
Buldogs will come out hard but to much defense from SC will overwelhm them. 38-3 SC

Thursday, September 24, 2009

R U ready for some football

Clev @ B-Mo
After seeing B-Mo's D step up in San Diego, they should easily beat a bad Browns team.

Tenn @ NYJ
What a huge slobber knocker contest. A defensive struggle that should be won through experience. Tenn wins.

Wash @ Det
Can Detroit go 0-16 2 years in a row. I don't know but they will lose again this sunday.

Jac @ Houston
Houston lacks a running game but a good d. The Jags will force the Texans to be one dimensional on a way to a win.

SF @ Min
SF has started off very strong but unless they can derail AP and the Vikes defense, this one could be over fast. Vikings win.

Atl @ NE
I still believe in Brady. Ne wins.

NYG @ Tampa
Tampa's bad . Giants win.

KC @ Philly
I hope Vick plays a lot in his highly anticipated debut. Philly wins big against a terrible KC.

GB gets back on track in a win against the Rams.

NO @ Bills
A great game but Can anyone stop Drew Brees. Not this week. But, everyone still needs to get your popcorn ready. NO wins

Chi @ Sea
Cutler got a big win last week. This should've done wonders for the rec corp. Look for Jay to have a big week in the passing game in a victory.

Pitt @ Cincy
Pitt angered by last weeks lost gets back in the win column this week.

Mia @ SD
Ohhh how times have changed. Mia needs to recapture the magic of last year. They won't against a San Diego team who let the game slip away at home last week.

Den @ Oak
Denver's luck runs out as a young Oaktown gets a victory.

Ind @ Ariz
Now this would be a fans ultimate Superbowl. But it's a regular season game and for that reason Arizona wins.

Car @ Dal
Carolina has to get it together soon but not against a Dallas team that gave their last game away. Cowboys win.

Strike Up the Band.. It's Saturday!

The U vs Va Tech
The U is back. You can't say enough about Heisman front runner Jacory Harris. The defense is athletic as they come. And, running backs James and Cooper are the best one two punch in the country. Va Tech will be presenting partial Beamer ball with a good special teams but an average defense. This isn't the combo that can beat an on fire Miami team. 28-16 Miami

Florida St is back. The athletic ability is second to none. South Florida would have been competitive if not for the season ending injury to QB Mat Grothe.New starter B.J Daniels will be a gooden but not against this super quick Noles defense. This one will be over quickly. 31-10 FL ST.

TCU vs Clemson
Clemson has played lights out on defense. Their special teams have been top 5 in the country this years. Play makers Spiller and Ford are primed and ready to roll. Problem is.... Kyle Parker has 4 picks in 3 games and hasn't played a good defense yet. TCU brings in the #7 defense in the country. If Clemson can't run the ball this will be a disappointing day for Tiger faithful. 24-14 TCU

UNC vs Ga Tech
Guess what Paul, the ACC has caught up to this unstoppable offense. Can you say losing streak. TJ Yates and the UNC defense have been playing lights out and haven't recieved any credit. They will now. UNC wins convincingly. 24-16 UNC

Iowa vs Penn ST
Penn St will win. Joe Pa's on his way to another Big 10 title. 28-17 Penn St

LSU vs Miss ST
LSU quietly ranked number 7 dominates an outmatched Miss ST team. 41-14

Ark vs AL
This is definitely not what the Dr. ordered for Petrino. This season can go south very quickly as Arkansas faces a Tx A&M, Auburn, UF, and Ole Miss. Nick Saban will beat up Arkansas in a physical game. 30-10 Bama

Cal vs Oregon
Cal boasting the best RB in college Javid Best is explosive. However, this is not the #6 team in the country. The win against Minn was ugly and closer than the score indicated. Oregon wins in a close one. 28-24 Oregon

UF vs Kentucky
Florida is over the flu. This isn't good news for the Wildcats. Florida in a route. 42-17 FL

Col St vs BYU
Can anyone say overated? Yep BYU just messed it up for Boise St. See what happens when you schedule real teams. 35-10 BYU

Ariz St vs UGA
The Pac-10 is soft and it will be proven by a slightly above average SEC team. 35-14 UGA

Washington vs Stanford
Will the Huskies still be floating in cloud 9 after a program changing victory over USC? Yes, but they'll still beat Stanford. 28-13 Wash

Tex Tech vs Houston
1st team to 50 wins. It will be Tx Tech. They actually showed they are decent on defense against Texas. Houston is ranked 65 in the county on D. 45-24 Tx Tech

Joe Pa National Championship

Why not? The BCS in all of it's glory almost makes it impossible for a Big Ten team to go undefeated and not reach the National championship game. But lets not blame the BCS. Before it, college football has always favored the Big Ten. An undefeated Big Ten team has never not won or at least shared the National Championship trophy in modern history. The Big 10 has 2 teams that would be able to compete in any other conference in the country. That shouldn't be enough to guarantee you a BCS birth.
Penn St has 2 games left on their schedule that they could possibly lose. Ohio St and Iowa are those games. But Joe Pa's playing both games at Happy Valley.
There are are only 2 other teams that can spoil Joe's party, Texas and Miami. Texas will lose a game and even if they don't, they don't have a strong enough argument. Texas has a strength of schedule ranking of 84. Penn St's strength of schedule is 61. Texas won't go undefeated any way. They will drop a game against either Oklahoma, Oklahoma St, Kansas or Texas A&M. The only other team that can knock out Penn St is The U. The University of Miami bolstering the hardest schedule in the country should make the National Championship game even with one lost. But, I will wait to argue that at a later date. For Joe Pa, a National Championship game farewell tour would be fitting for a guy who has coached for a 1000 years. p.s. it should go without saying that they'll be playing Florida.

NFL Picks

Carolina Beats Atlanta. I know it's crazy but its the NFL. Delhomme will bounce back and they still have the best 1,2 punch in the backfield. And of course , arguably the best WR in football who can still win a game by himself. Steve Smith is primed and ready to have a big week and the running game will get on track.

Minn beats Det. Poor Matt Stafford he will be pretty beat up after he experiences the pass rush of the Vikings. My bad, there's no way I should've used POOR and Mathew Stafford in the same sentence. Darnit, did it again.

Green Bay beats Cincy. Marvin Lewis will began to feel the heat again after dropping a gimmie last week with Denver. Watch out for Greenbay.

Jacksonville beats Arizona. Cardinals continue to experience the Superbowl slump as the Jaguars bounce back after a tough lost last week.

Oakland beats KC. Raiders put it together against KC in a win. Well, lets just say they're playing KC so they will win.

NE beats NYJ. Old school AFC east match up. Sanchez will be welcomed into the NFL as Belichick dials up blitzes he thought didn't exist. Brady clicks on all cylinders and scorches the good Jets D.

Philly beats NO. NO has Brees but Philly's D will be top 5 in the league before its said and done. Too much D and a strong Philly running game will lead them to a very close victory. Oh, did you forget that Brian Westbrook plays on this team?

Hou beats Tenn. 0-2 will the Vince Young chants start? Matt Schaub and Houstons D wins a ground and pound defensive game.

Wash beats St. Louis. I guess in college you would call this a rebuilding year. But, how many years do you get to rebuild in St.Louis? NFC east team to tough.

Buff beats Tampa. T.O will have a huge game and Buff will learn how to finish a game this week.

Seattle beats SF. Why not? Really who cares. I think both teams are bad and a win against St.Louis won't put you on my team.

Bears Beat Steelers. 2 teams same philosophy. One QB has a lot to prove. After a dismal week Jay Cutler will be looking to beat the Champs to get a buzz going in Chitown. Steelers are better but they won't win them all. Especially with no Palumua and Ward and Smith questionable.

Clev beats Den. Flip a coin , both teams are bad except Cleveland will be able to depend on there running game to win this one.

SD beats Baltimore. No Ed Reed + No Terrell Suggs= Ravens lost. this is a defensive lead team who needs plays made on defense to win. There best 2 play makers are out.

Dallas beats NYG. Dallas playing well on O and D. Giants still trying to figure out who's there play makers on O. that spells trouble for big Blue.

Colts beat Mia too much O for the Colts. Not enough D by the Dolphins. Maybe part owner Serena Williams may hype the team up with her physicality shown in the U.S Open.
