  • College Football Picks - Week Three

       September 15, 2006

    Last week I was a stellar 4 for 5. Of course, I completely choked on the SEC game. Someday I'll figure out that conference. Probably not today, but someday, and soon.

    #15 Oklahoma at #18 Oregon: I like the Ducks, mostly because famous racehorse owners Bob & Beverly Lewis went to school there and use the school colors for their silks. I don't mind Oklahoma since some old neighbors of mine lived there and they were literally the nicest people alive. Anyway, to the game. The Sooners' RB Adrian Peterson is apparently living up to his Heisman hype. If you have a strong running game you can win anywhere, especially in Eugene, where I suspect the ghost of Pre smiles down on anyone breaking into a run. The pick: Oklahoma.

    #6 LSU at #3 Auburn: Last Bowl season, the Badgers crushed Auburn. Because of that, I just can't believe that they are really the third best team in the country. I know this game is at Auburn and I shouldn't do this, but I think LSU is going to spring the minor upset. Being from Louisiana, the team should know how to deal with adversity. The pick: LSU

    San Diego State at Wisconsin: Wisconsin's P.J. Hill will run it up the gut and by the middle of the third quarter San Diego State will be ready to go back to their beautiful hometown. I'll be ready to Jump Around. The pick: Wisconsin.

    #11 Michigan at #2 Notre Dame: Notre Dame has been overrated for so many years. I think people are trying to compensate for that now. The result is that I think they might be underrated this year. Michigan, on the other hand, thinks they found some revolutionary new theory of football that involves running the ball a lot. Yeah, no one has ever thought of doing that before. Leave it to those brains in Ann Arbor. I think Notre Dame stuffs Hart and Brady Quinn has a huge game. The pick: Notre Dame.

    #7 Florida at #13 Tennessee: Is this the game that is supposed to include the world's biggest cocktail party? If so, that's false advertising. Clearly the world's biggest cocktail party takes place at my Thursday night kickball games. Anyway...Tennessee looked great against Cal in week one, but pretty ordinary last week. I'd pick against them with the thought that Cal really sucks and are not a good barometer of quality, but it's the SEC, so I'm going to do the opposite of what I think and see if that works. The pick: Tennessee.

    hmm, these are some tough games to pick. im pretty much 50-50 on all of em except ND/Michigan

    The World's Biggest Outdoor Cocktail Party is the Florida-Georgia game, but I think they have to stop using that name (kind of how Texas-OU had to change from "Shootout" to the "Red River Rivalry.")

    Like your picks except I don't see LSU holding Kenny Irons, and I think Florida prevails. I guess I don't really care who wins, though, because it's going to be one hell of a day for football.

    what a sorry bunch of picks. I think after this weekend I might have to refrain from picking any more SEC games.

    of course, Oklahoma really got screwed. i know it makes me sound like a Bears fan, but i feel like i should count that as a successful pick since they really did win that game.

    Yep, Oklahoma got screwed, and I couldn't have laughed any hard then I did when it happened.
