College Football Picks - Week Six
This week already had a top 25 upset when N.C. State beat Florida State last night. Let's hope it's one of those fun, wild & wacky weeks in college football. Here we go!
#15 Clemson at Wake Forest: Wake Forest is one of the nation's 13 remaining unbeaten teams. They've defeated the likes of Duke, Connecticut & Liberty. Clemson is a big step up from that and even at home I don't think they stand a chance. The pick: Clemson.
Northwestern at Wisconsin: This game is only available on ESPN 360. That's an internet service that's free if your ISP subscribes. If you're ISP doesn't subscribe, you're out of luck. The whole thing seems pretty screwy to me. Shouldn't ESPN at least let you pay to watch the game? Anyway, back to football. Northwestern stinks as usual, but they always play Wisconsin tough. Wisconsin's offense, however, came alive last week against Indiana. They're not going into hibernation again. The pick: Wisconsin.
Purdue at #19 Iowa: Big Ten bonus pick! I'm not at all impressed with Iowa. They barely beat teams they should have clobbered and they got their ass kicked around by Ohio State last week. Purdue has played well against everyone but Notre Dame. I know people don't like to hear this, but Notre Dame is a really good team. The pick: Purdue.
Washington at #3 USC: Everyone always thinks that Washington or Oregon or Arizona State or UCLA is going to upset USC and it never, ever happens. USC rules the Pac 10 and they're not giving up the throne. At least not this week. The pick: USC.
#9 LSU at #5 Florida: SEC game alert! The only week LSU played a good team, they put up a whopping 3 points on Auburn. Florida, on the other hand, already has a win at Tennessee on their belt. Florida is supposed to have the toughest schedule in the nation. It's supposed to be impossible for them to make it through that gauntlet alive. I say let's not bury the Gators until they've actually lost. The pick: Florida.
#7 Texas vs. #14 Oklahoma: I think this is another upset. Texas hasn't played a decent team since getting stomped by Ohio State. Oklahoma, on the other hand, beat Washington at home and had the heartbreaker against Oregon. If Adrian Peterson can run against the Longhorns, I think the Sooners could run away with the game. That's a big if. I just don't know what to make of Texas since you don't learn much in games against Sam Houston State. So, the pick: Oklahoma.

|Woo Hoo! Another great weekend! Lots of great top 25 action. OU-Texas, USC-Washington, LSU-Florida! Bring it on!
Clemson - Wake: Both teams are overrated, but Clemson has shown some abilities in the recent past. Wake is undefeated on a soft schedule. Clemson by 2 TD's.
I'm going to be nice any say Wisconsin by 40. We'll see. It could be worse...
Iowa may be overrated, but Purdue would be overrated with a 100 ranking. Expect an angry Iowa by 3 TD's.
Washington- SO. Cal:
USC will expose Washington for the fake they are.
LSU is getting tired of people thinking they are overrated. Unfortunately, they are. Extremely overrated. The problem is, so is Florida. The upset of the weekend: LSU wins.
OU is pissed. They're mad about Oregon. They're mad at last years Texas game. On the flip side, Texas is so overrated, it's pathetic. In the who knows versus who-cares game, I'll take OU and the anger.
Oregon and Georgia will lose their undefeated status and UM will prevail 31 - 10.
Oh and REV, MU 24 Texas Tech 3.
Have a great weekend everyone!

|I will confess a major bias against all things Texas. The forces of evil in this world are in this order: Notre Dame, Texas teams, Satan, then we'll toss in the axis of evil and other bit players. That bias may cloud my judgement of the OU and MU games. No it doesn't have anything to do with Bush. I hated any and all Texas teams a long time before Bush's dad was president. Clouded judgement or not, I'll stand by my predictions.
Good evening everyone!

|Any Arkansawyer has an abiding wish to see the Longhorns lose. Actually, I don't mind seeing any of our old SWC opponents lose. We were the only non-Texas team and it sucked. The horrors of that 1969 game...I wasn't even a teenager yet and that great but horrible game still lives on in my memory. |

|Arkansas is beating # 2 Auburn!
I'm going back to mass --- there are truly miracles and Jesus is obviously behind this one.

|4 out of 6, so not terrible. I'm surprised Iowa stomped Purdue. I really had no idea how Texas/Oklahoma would turn out. I'm glad Texas won since the better they do the better it is for the Big Ten.
One of the funny things about college football is how fans of the teams that beat you are suddenly YOUR biggest fans. For example, Michigan fans keep extolling the virtues of Wisconsin. They love us!
The Badgers looked good yesterday. The won easily and it would have been even worse without the 3 red zone turnovers. Michigan might have been lucky to get us at the start of the season because if the young guys on offense keep maturing like this we will be a force to be reckoned with as the season rolls on.

|Iowa is better than people think. Top 15? Probably not, but top 25 definitely. Satan's minions did decently yesterday. Texas killed OU and Notre Dame won big. Sometimes they bad guy wins.
I almost blew it on Clemson. It's amazing what a botched field goal returned for a TD can do to a game.
Next week is UM-Penn St.
Have a good week!
