Week 11 college football picks … them’s fightin’ words

fan fight college football picks Week 11Early warning to be prepared for some knockdown, dragged-out fights this weekend.

Notre Dame-Miami, Georgia-Auburn, Clemson-Florida State … yeah, those are big games. But I’m talking about the altercations involving fans. If this Saturday is anything like last Saturday, well, now we’re really talking “Bedlam.”

“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.
