College Football Picks-Week 4
If you're a part of our football pool, be sure to get your picks in. If you're not, well come on, whatcha waiting for?
Now on to the picks, this week with a Big Ten flair:
Boston College at Clemson: Boston College was beyond disappointing in their loss to Florida State last week, while Clemson took Miami (FL) to overtime before losing. Clemson has shown a lot of heart and I think they're a better team than Boston College. My only worry is that after their loss they'll lose heart. For now I'm going to keep the faith. The pick: Clemson.
#11 Purdue at Minnesota: If this game was in Lafayette, I'd go for the Boilermakers. But, the Metrodome is a horrible, hellish place to play. And that's for the home team! On the road, it's the dome of doom. I think Minnesota will run wild on Purdue. The pick: Minnesota and another Big Ten unbeaten goes down.
#21 Iowa at #8 Ohio State: I think Ohio State is probably the best team in the league and that Iowa is probably overrated. While this will be billed as the matchup of the day in the conference, I don't think this one will be even close. The pick: Ohio State.
#15 Georgia Tech at #4 Virginia Tech: I have a speaking suspicion that Virginia Tech is going to smelling Roses at the end of the season. I'm not saying they're going to win the National Championship Game, but I think they're going to be there. If so, they can't lose today. The pick: Virginia Tech.
#1 USC at #24 Oregon: Oregon strikes me as a very good team, but USC is a great team. This will a tough rough test, but when hasn't this team passed a test? They always do. And they will again. The pick: USC.
#14 Michigan at Wisconsin: Wisconsin and Michigan don't have a rivalry because they always beat us. Always. This is the one game I most want the Badgers to win. If we win tomorrow, the rest of the season is gravy. So, will we win? Michigan's defense is suspect and Wisconsin is far more balanced than most people realize. On the flip side, our pass defense is nothing to write home about either. I think it'll be a shootout and that one key defensive stop late in the game will make the difference. The pick: Wisconsin. If I'm right, they'll be a whole heck of a lot of drunk, happy people in Wisconsin this weekend!

|3/4 sportsline experts pick Wisconsin to beat Michigan.
fox sports is picking wisconsin to win
sports illustrated is picking wisconsin to win
usa today is picking wisconsin to win
(i have no idea who espn is picking since their website is such complete crap - slow, poorly organized, filled with flash popups. i spent about 7 minutes looking then gave up.)
so, my question is - since every media outlet seems to think that wisconsin will win, why is 3-0 wisconsin unranked while 2-1 michigan is #14?

this means we'll lose for sure
it's supposed to rain, so maybe that'll slow down any Michigan passing game.
