  • College Football Picks-Week 12

       November 18, 2005

    We're getting down to the nitty gritty now. College football teams are fighting for a place in the best warm weather Bowl Games and I'm fighting to stay alive in the Dummocrats College Football Pool. I trail James by 4 points and Drew from the Longhorn Mafia by 3 points. It's time for me to make a move. So, I've gotta pick some upsets.

    #23 Boston College at Maryland: Why is BC ranked? Although actually, I take such delight in picking against them that I should be glad they're still in the top 25. Maryland hasn't beaten a ranked team all year, but they are coming off a good win at North Carolina. Furthermore, this game is at Maryland and Boston College has lost it's last two road games, including a loss to the aforementioned North Carolina. The pick: Maryland, and BC is finally, mercifully booted from the top 25.

    #9 Ohio State at #17 Michigan: As an outsider to the Ohio State/Michigan rivalry, it seems like the team that needs this game the most inevitably loses it. This year, Michigan needs to win it to cement a successful season. Ohio State, on the other hand, needs it for a chance at a BCS bowl bid. Over the course of the entire season, I think Ohio State is the better team, but with all that's on the line and with the game being in Ann Arbor (who, by the way, is a whore) all bets are off. The pick: Michigan, which means that the Badgers will be Alamo Bowl bound. Hello, San Antonio!

    #8 Alabama at #11 Auburn: 'Bama was exposed as a pretender to the National Championship throne last week. Now, I think they'll be exposed as a pretender to even the SEC Championship. Auburn, after basically graduating their offense, has been a pleasant surprise this year. I have a soft spot for the school because of Charles Barkley. I'm sure these boys don't want to let Sir Charles down. The pick: Auburn.

    #4 LSU at Mississippi: Mississippi is terrible. They've only won one game in their conference. But, they play LSU tough and they're at home and I need some big upsets to have a chance at taking the lead. The pick: Mississippi.

    #16 Fresno State at #1 USC: If you just look at the rankings, you may think this is going to be a tough game for USC. But, let's look at who Fresno State has beaten this year: Weber State, Toledo, Hawaii, San Jose State. This list goes on. In their only game against a ranked opponent, they lost to Oregon. While I probably should pick the shocking upset, I'm not even tempted. The pick; USC.

    maryland by 4
    michigan by 1
    auburn by 9
    lsu by 10
    usc by 21

    i might change that michgan pick 10 times before kickoff.

    you know, i really wish that i'd have gone to law school at either usc or ucla. i'd have some killer football tickets right now. college football is terrible in the district.

    No Penn State-Michigan State pick?

    Fresno State has a better chance against USC than Ole Miss has against LSU. I wouldn't pick either though.

    Ugh, do I have a hangover.

    Next time that someone poo-poos the importance of a good offensive line, just point them to the last two 'Bama games. The starting center gets hurt in the Miss. State game, and the replacement can't hold his own.

    Hopefully the injured player will be back for the bowl game (they said he might, but I'm not holding my breath).
