College Football Picks - Week 10
I wonder what the odds are the five unbeaten teams at this point in the season would be Ohio State, Boston College, Kansas, Arizona State and Hawaii? It's both amazing and refreshing, don't you think?
Wisconsin at #1 Ohio State: Wisconsin has a great recent record in Columbus. The Horseshoe won't be the problem. The players playing in it, on the other hand, will be. I'd love to pick the Badgers, but I think their running game will be ineffective without Lance Smith and with a banged up P.J. Hill. Luckily for Badger fans, most won't see the game since it's only on the foul Big Ten Network. The pick: Ohio State.
Nebraska at #8 Kansas: I thought Nebraska would be good this year. Boy, was I wrong. Now with QB Sam Keller out for the season, they'll be even worse. I don't think Kansas will finish the year undefeated, but they're not ready to go down yet. The pick: Kansas.
#3 LSU at #17 Alabama: LSU will be extra fired up to take down former coach Nick Saban's Crimson Tide (as an aside, in the NCAA bball bracket we made based on what mascot would win the Crimson Tide was dominant). Of course, one of the things you learn as you get older is that sometimes you don't get what you want, no matter how much you want it. The pick: LSU.
#6 Arizona State at #4 Oregon: I'd like the Sun Devils to stick it to the Ducks, but I think Oregon has got themselves a winner this year. Autzen Stadium is going to rock and Oregon is going to roll on to what I think will be a spot in the National Championship game. The pick: Oregon.
Florida State at #2 Boston College: A lot of people are picking Alabama to upset LSU. Florida State beat Alabama. They're inconsistent, but I think they're capable of playing a great game every once in awhile. One of unbeaten teams has to lose, right? The pick: Florida State.
Bonus NFL Pick: In the most important football game of our time, I'm going with New England. Why will New England win? It's not Tom Brady's dash or Bill Belichick's brain or Randy Moss' fine backside. Nope, New England will win because I dislike them slightly more than the Colts. It's all about me. The pick: New England.

|What? No prediction of Michigan/Michigan State? Hmm, I'll put mine in later. But first:
Sorry everyone, but I think OSU goes all the way this year and if they wind up with Oregon, they win it all. Ohio State wins going away.
Yeah, rough year for the Huskers. Gets even rougher without the QB. KU rips them a new one.
Bama has nothing (much) and LSU knows it can't lose for any chance at the MNC. LSU will be fired up and ready. Bama gets spanked badly.
I blew it picking against ASU last week, but as I said last week, I think Oregon is the real deal this year. I think they win by a couple touchdowns.
BC won't win out. FSU likes to nail people here. Florida States infamous grass graveyard gets another chunk. They kick BC out of the undefeated club.
I guess I could have saved all that typing and just said ditto what Kris said, but hey, I like to hear myself type. :)
Other cool games:
No Henne again, but they can win if Hart plays. Hart could have played against Minnesota, he does tomorrow and UM wins.
Wake is rolling again. Virginia is quietly beating most comers. Wake in a squeaker.
Colorado owns Missouri. They win again.
Upsets of the week:
Cincy over South Florida, although that really might not be an upset.
Rutgers over UConn. Ditto, may not really be an upset.
Brady has an obscene QB rating. Bringing in Moss was brilliant. I know Peyton is good, but he is no Brady. He doesn't have that big game killer instinct. Besides, Brady is UM's best advertisement to QB recruits. And dang, he is tough in the big games. New England by 10.

|Nice video! I think dressage is really cool - it's one of the events I wish they'd actually show during the Olympics. |
