Week 5 college football picks … is everyone on the field?

Kentucky college football thinkiingSo who wasn’t thinking last week? Have to say Kentucky and Coach Bob Stoops. The Wildcats gave up Florida’s game-winning touchdown with only TEN men on the field.

Gators quarterback Luke Del Rio hit a wide-open Freddie Swain for the 28-27 victory. Wide-open as in nobody was there to cover him.

Doh! That’s not thinking.

But sometimes I think too much. Like Week 4: Zoom to the bottom! Only had 73 percent correct on my picks. When it comes to thinking, I need to don’t stop stopping.

Week 4 college football picks … keep your eye on the camera, man

college football picks cheerleader cameramanWhen you see an NFL “cheerleader” dancing in front of you, don’t run her over with a camera.

And if you’re an NFL “cheerleader” dancing, maybe you should always keep one eye on the camera, man.

I say neither one was thinking. They should get off the football field and start making football picks. That’s what I do.

Week 3 was my worst week yet. Ugh! I only was correct on 78 percent of my picks, down from 81 percent in Week 2. I know, I know: Think less, pick better.

Angry fans, fired coachesWhoa. Week 3 and almost a half-dozen coaches are in the crosshairs of their respective fans. Maybe more.

And a couple of them actually won on Saturday.

Leave Sergio alone. That’s exactly how he was trained at ESPN. Just talk into the microphone and try not to think. And THAT’s what not thinking looks like.

Just imagine — that’s my brain functioning as I make these college football picks.  Just like Sergio Dipp.
