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 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.”

Another tough week of picking games, but I’m still not going to start thinking about them. It wouldn’t be worth it, despite the advice I received from NBA superstar Michael Jordan.

I’m still not going to think about it, even though I’ve dropped to 77 percent success rate.

Week 6 college football picks … watch where you’re kicking, man

not thinking college football picksWhen it comes to punting, the best direction is to go up. Straight up, if possible. Last Saturday, Tennessee punter Trevor Daniel decide to go straight up in a different way. He decided to go straight up a teammate’s tush. And he missed, hitting Georgia’s D’Andre Walker.

It wasn’t the thing that lost the game 41-0 game to Georgia, but it sort of epitomized it.

It was a beautiful moment of not thinking, something I will try to emulate as I make my picks for Week 6 of the college football season.

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.

Hey, remember these guys? The 5-star quarterback that was going to send your team into the stratosphere for the next 3-4 seasons?

They played at places like USC, Alabama, Florida, Notre Dame and LSU.

Then things didn’t work out. They left the program. Transferred to another. And now they’re eligible for this season.

Will fortunes be restored to these quarterbacks … or will the become irrelevant?

Each one comes with promise and baggage. But it likely will come down to how well they perform in those first five games.
