Week 9 college football picks … this time with an important message

via GIPHY

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 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.

Wednesday’s college football headlines: Another Draft Day Miracle!

Draft Day

Well, maybe miracle is overstating it. How about this: Another Draft Day Coincidence! ….

Flashback to last season’s Sun Bowl, North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky led the Tar Heels to a touchdown with 1:09 left in the game to close Stanford’s lead to two points (25-23). His attempt to run in the two-point conversion failed. Stanford went on to win the game.

Trubisky was 23 of 39 for 280 yards with two touchdowns passing. But he also had two interceptions and two sacks. One of those sacks came on the Tar Heels’ next-to-last drive, which was forced UNC to punt, down 25-17 when it desperately needed to maintain control the ball. The defender who got the sack was Stanford’s Solomon Thomas.

Last week, San Francisco traded the No. 2 pick to Chicago, which stunned many draft followers — and even some of its own fans — by picking Trubisky. And who did the 49ers pick at No. 3? Yep, Thomas.

Maybe the 49ers saw something they liked in the game film.

Poor Mitch.
