Week 12 college football picks … stop picking on me!

 

picks college footballOn paper,  this week should be the easiest week to pick college football games. Way too many top teams playing weaker opponents, including Alabama (just a little rat poison there).

The Citadel at Clemson, Louisiana-Monroe at Auburn, Michigan at Wisconsin … it’s pathetic, really.

On with the picks …

Week 7 college football picks … the latest dose of ‘poison’

College football picks Poison Nick Saban thinking
Poison — a band and something the media keeps giving to Nick Saban’s players

Remember when Alabama coach Nick Saban said he didn’t even know “Why do we even play?” because of all of the predictions and picking and thinking by the media.

Well, now he’s sick of the “poison” the media has been giving his players.

After Texas A&M made it uncomfortable, the top-ranked Crimson Tide prevailed, 27-19, at College Station, Texas.

A venting Saban said after the game:

“I’m trying to get our players to listen to me instead of listening to you guys. All that stuff you write about how good we are. All that stuff they hear on ESPN. It’s like poison. …  It’s like taking poison. … Like rat poison.”

His team is ranked No. 1, and Nick Saban says praising his players is like giving them poison? Well, I guess it’s like when you have a rose and it has a thorn. You know, just like every night has its dawn. Just like every cowboy sings a sad, sad song. … Just listen to the Poison, players, unplugged …

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 3 college football picks … ‘Here on the field … and up close’

“Coach, it sure is a pleasure to be here with you guys … here on the field … and up close … just watching … Coach Vance Joseph …”

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.
