  • College Football Picks - Week Six

       October 04, 2007

    As of 9:27 PM central time on 10/4/2007, there are only 15 undefeated college football teams. With Kentucky losing, it looks like we'll be down to 14 by the evening's end. Will anyone else join the one loss club?

    Kansas at #24 Kansas State: Kansas is one of the fearsome 15. Of course, they're unbeaten against the likes of Central Michigan, Southeastern Louisiana, Toledo and Florida International. Kansas State, on the other hand, beat Texas in Texas and only lost to a resurgent Auburn. The one loss club needs to make room for another member. The pick: Kansas State.

    #5 Wisconsin at Illinois: After last year's tough game, I feared Illinois even before they became this week's chic upset pick. The Badgers have looked bad, but they've found a way to win. I'm really worried about this game, but rampant homerism forces me to pick Wisconsin.

    #10 Oklahoma at #19 Texas: How the mighty have fallen, huh? Both of these teams lost last weekend, but while Texas got blown out at home by a good team, Oklahoma lost a close one on the road to the bad team. To me, that says that Oklahoma was looking ahead, but that Texas just isn't that good. The pick: Oklahoma.

    #15 Virginia Tech at #22 Clemson: I may not know much about football, but in my years of making picks, I've come to realize that Clemson is utterly predictable in their inconsistency. They were upset last week. They play a higher ranked team this week. Clearly this means they're primed for their own upset. The pick: Clemson.

    #4 Ohio State at #23 Purdue: Purdue is unbeaten after having played pretty much the same lame schedule as Kansas (two of the same teams). Ohio State, on the other hand, has a nice road win against a good Washington team under their belt. Ohio State may be young, but they're learning fast. In this battle of unbeatens, the pick is Ohio State.

    #9 Florida at #1 LSU: Wasn't Upset Saturday fun? I know this game is in Baton Rouge, but I just get the feeling that Tim Tebow is going to play huge and basically pull his teammates to the win. Look for a fun, exciting and ultimately satisfying game (unless you're a LSU fan). The pick: Florida.

    #25 Nebraska at #17 Missouri: Missouri is a cupcake glutton and Nebraska's defense isn't nearly as bad as the hype. I know it's on the road, but it's Missouri for god's sake. I think they knock them off rather easily. The pick: Missouri Nebraska

    KY is losing? Dang. Had too much to do to watch it. I have missed way too much football in the last week. Saturday, my sister-in-law's dog (well, she actually dumped it on us to find a home for it) literaly ate 2 of our cats, including the family favorite whom we had longer than our children. The wife caught him in the act. Let's just say football was less important that day. At one point the wife was chasing the dog with a big metal pipe... Yeesh, find a happy place...

    Ok, onto the picks,

    K-state will pulverize Kansas. Badly. Not even close.

    Ill - Wisconsin:
    Ok, Illinois beat PSU. Still, I'm not sold on them. Wisconsin wins ugly, but that's the thing. They win. The continue to win ugly here. Go with the Badgers.

    Yeah, Kris, I agree. OU was looking ahead. They won't here. They need to win out to have any chance at a title game. They will deliver. OU big.

    Va Tech/Clemson:
    Clemson is readying their annual collapse. I think it starts here. I took Va Tech with the points, I'll take them without them as well. Va Tech to win.

    OSU - Purdue:
    OSU big. Not even remotely close.

    Florida - LSU:
    I had Florida with the points in our pick'em. Not sure about overall. I think I'll go with Kris' pick. Florida will be ticked. Give them the edge.

    Nebraska - Mizzou:
    Kris, I assume you meant Nebraska in your pick? You wrote Mizzou but sounded like you were actually picking the Huskers. I concur. Nebraska easily.

    Other cool games:
    Tennessee over Ga.
    PSU over Iowa.
    UCLA big over Notre Dame

    Have a great weekend everyone.

    That's horrible! I'm assuming the dog was a "gentle" pit bull. This isn't the first time I've heard of one of these dogs eating pets when they come over. I wouldn't let one of them within 50 feet of my boys.

    You would be correct. A lab/pit mix or retriever/pit mix. It belonged to my 22 year old son. He had that one and a Dacshound/Great Dane mix (Don't ask how. I have NO idea. Had to use a box and ladder). He decided to move to New York and needed to be rid of the dogs. He had the lab/pit mix left and dumped it with us. We kept it for a few weeks and then the wife's sister took it. She lives by moving in with her boyfriends. When one dumps her, she spends a day or two finding another to move in with. When her last one dumped her, she dumped the dog back on us. The thing is it was very gentle. It cringed anytime you walked up to it fast. My 5 year old and 8 year old hung on it and rode it like a horse. He loved the attention. He just suddenly decided on cat kabobs and the rest is history.

    Well, heck. Sorry everyone. I was stuck at work and had to "watch" it via an ESPN gamecast. I'm sure I'll get an email on that, but hey, I got my work done. A little bandwidth abuse is a small price to pay.

    I thought that Wisconsin would rally and every time they did, Illinois had an answer. As a UM fan, I have never had to say, good grief, Illinois is going to kill us and thank you Lord, we don't play Indiana... What an upside down year.

    Here's hoping LSU goes down. Take care.

    I've got no business making college football picks.
