  • College Football Picks - Week 11

       November 08, 2007

    After my perfect week, a scant three teams remain unbeaten. As the weather cools down, the college football action heats up. Bring it on!

    #13 Michigan at Wisconsin: Wisconsin had Ohio State on the ropes last week and we let 'em off the hook! The series of mental and coaching errors in the final quarter and a half were, in my opinion, the end of the season. We're going to get killed. The pick: Michigan.

    Illinois at #1 Ohio State: The Buckeyes had every opportunity to throw in the towel last weekend and they didn't. They took everything Wisconsin could offer and then just ran the ball down our throats. I'm impressed. The pick: Ohio State.

    #18 Auburn at #10 Georgia: Georgia struggled against Troy (who apparently isn't just some guy) last week while Auburn beat up on Tennessee Tech (ooooh, check out that tough SEC schedule!). After a rough start to the season, Auburn's played well and it took some magic for LSU to beat them. Lightning isn't going to strike them twice. The pick: Auburn.

    #5 Kansas at Oklahoma State: I'm a believer. Kansas is pretty good. They sure put a spanking Nebraska last week. Confidence is their 12th man. That'll help, especially on the road. The pick: Kansas.

    #12 USC at #24 California: Most people predicted that this game would decide the Pac 10 and possibly a berth in the National Championship Game. Yeah, not so much. Both teams have been shocking disappointments. USC, however, had a nice game last week and I think they're going to build on that and salvage their season. The pick: USC.

    Fresno State at #14 Hawaii: Do you hear that? I think it's Queen. The pick: Fresno State.

    Bonus NFL Pick: Packers over Vikings, although I won't be quite so gleeful if Brooks Bollinger is their QB. I don't want to hurt Brooks!

    no offense ms. kris with a k, but i think you've picked some cupcake games this week.

    (famous last words, as i proceed to pick 100% wrong...)

    BADGERS beat WOLVERINES at CAMP RANDALL. Yes, Michigan is looking fairly solid now, but let's not forget, it's only "big ten" solid. Plus, they lost to (a very good ) Appalachian State, which is unacceptable. Add to that the fact that the Badgers are solid at Camp Randall, and I'll tell you one thing about Michigan - They are who we thought they were! A former powerhouse that is a shell of its former self!

    Ohio State wins out and continues on to their destiny of playing the Ducks in the National Title game

    Kris with a K will ALWAYS pick Auburn. Perhaps it's her feminine nature. I go contrary and pick the BULLDOGS by 3 TDs.

    It all might come to an end for Kansas this week. I pick Kansas, but I think it's close. Call it Kansas by 3.

    USC v. Cal. hmm.... Can I just pick a team that someone actually cares about instead? Oregon beats their bye week by 30!

    In the "always starting at midnight" bowl, I pick hawaii, solely because they have more i's in their name, and as we all know, there is no "i" in "lose."

    in other games...

    Notre Dame gets bombed by Air Force for 21.

    Texas drops one to Texas Tech

    Unranked Florida State upsets #11 VaTech

    You just couldn't resist that UM tag could you James? :) That's ok, I agree. They are a shell of their former selves.

    Like James said, a shell of their former selves. Unfortunately, due to injury, so is Wisconsin. Wisconsin has been flailing lately and that's not a good position to be in at the end of a season. The former powerhouse shell beats the injured shell. UM over Wisconsin.

    I'm torn on this. It's either OSU big or OSU close. Are they looking ahead to their annual killing of UM? Thinking about getting their App State shirts on and all? Or are the focusing on the task at hand? If the former, OSU close. If not, OSU by 20. I'll go with the latter. Tressel is good at keeping his team from looking ahead.

    Says James: "Kris with a K will ALWAYS pick Auburn. Perhaps it's her feminine nature" It could be. I don't know. Maybe our resident "wants to be a woman" can help. Steve? Any ideas? I agree with James. GA is tough at home and will win.

    Kansas is tougher that I thought as well. OSU isn't tough. They've had a couple good games, but few good wins. Besides, I want Kansas to win out and get snubbed. That would be too good. Kansas wins.

    USC/Cal: This game went from the Pac 10 championship and berth in the BCS championship to a who knows versus who cares game. Still, Cal is reeling and USC is USC. So Southern Cal it is.

    Hawaii wins.

    Other Games:
    It will be so cool to see ND get beat yet again. I know you hate UM, but isn't it just delicious seeing ND at one, count them, one win? The tears of unfathomable sorrow. So good.

    Fl State/Va Tech:
    Florida State is done with the upsets. Va Tech by 10.

    Texas over Tech

    Florida/South Carolina:
    So Carolina is imploding. It continues. Florida wins.

    Virginia puts another dagger into Miami, who is another team that fills my heart with glee to see flounder.

    Upset of the week: Wake over Clemson.

    So ends another exciting week. And Steve, again, my son is no longer attached. He likes Wisconsin too. Just let me know!

    God bless everyone. Have a good weekend.

    On paper, there are not a lot of interesting games this weekend, so I figured I'd pick all of the games involving unbeaten teams.

    In case anyone wants to see it, here is the analysis of UM/Wisconsin from a great Michigan blogger, Brian at MGoBlog.

    Money quote:

    "A totally healthy Wisconsin would be a serious threat, but a Badger team missing five starters and replacing them all with underclassmen is a significantly less imposing opponent."

    He compares the offenses versus the defenses and all. Plus there is a really cute kitten in the post. An inside joke.

    To see the joke, go here and then click older post for a few clicks. It was his way of handling the App State loss.

    Funny as heck.

    Holy Crap Batman. I take my daughter to a birthday party and come back and we're down 17-0. What are ya doin' us? I'm Tivo'ing the game, but I'm afraid to watch...  
    #  November 10th, 2007 4:23 PM      themandownthehall
    Well, congrats Badger fans. You outplayed us by a bunch and deserved to win. Two teams of walking wounded. I sure hope we both heal before the bowl games.  
    #  November 10th, 2007 5:30 PM      themandownthehall
    Oh, great. Ohio State loses in time to be real pissed off when we play them. Thanks Illinois.  
    #  November 11th, 2007 8:43 AM      kris
    So themandownthehall, does that Crable kid always play so dirty? I don't know what the hell Lloyd Carr was so upset about. That kid tried to decapitate Donovan twice. He should have been kicked out of the game.  
    #  November 11th, 2007 9:34 PM      themandownthehall
    No, he doesn't. He single handedly kept the first scoring drive alive. Idiot. Carr should have pulled him. On the MGoBlog, we were wondering what Carr was witching about too. Granted the second wasn't as bad as the first, you still can't touch a QB in the helmet. Stupid. Absolutely stupid. And, again, no, not the way Crable usually plays. Don't know what was up his rear, but I hope he gets it out before OSU.  
    #  November 12th, 2007 7:27 PM      themandownthehall
    To follow up on Crable, those were his only 2 PF's this season. I know I'll never convice anyone here, but I don't think he was trying to hurt Donovan. He's not James Kamoku ;)

    My guess is that he'll be doing the 6am stairs as punishment. That's Lloyds favorite for dealing with this kind of thing.

    BTW, the rumors are flying, Carr announces his retirement after OSU. Some coaches will do anything to win.
