My Picks: 7-5

  It's time somebody in the ACC stepped up and took control of the ACC...right now it's Miami-Maryland and they control their own destiny's one will lose but I don't think it will be Miami... at least one black coach has to give a school a reason not to fire him for a while... or not. . .

Like I said one of them will lose...Florida State is a lot like North Carolina...and North Carolina should have beatten Maryland last week, can anyone say Miami-Florida St. ACC title game? alright so they both lost, but I can still get Miami-Florida St.

they just dominated Louisville, the Rutgers loss wasn't as bad as it originally looked there are two halves to football!!!

this should be a great game, could go either way. Normally I'd go with the home team in this situation....but since you all went the Penn State way...and my picks have sucked, I'll go the other way...either I'm wrong and I continue to have horrible picks, or I'm right and I move up a little whatever. . .

BC better win this damn game...Wake just lost to NC state, the ACC has killed everybody's picks consistently but this week just feels different : well that was a close one

someone explain to me how LSU is ranked? their best win is at SC!!! they beat Auburn and Miss St. who suck then Troy, Tulane, North Texas and Appalachian State!!!! are you kidding me!!!! Ole miss is the better team I guess it helps when you see the teams all the time

alright time to see if I can be objective, we know who I want to win, it's a fact that defenses take more chances at home and that's what the Sooners are going to need if they're going to win, thier offense has been dominant the past few weeks, as has Tech's it seems to me that tech's last few opponents were overwhelmed by this offense...that's not going to happen to the sooners. please ruin the BCS!!! alright that wasn't objective. . . for once, not being objective didn't bite me

Oregon state's defense is better...they will lose next week by the way...I believe nice last drive, but with the injuries they're really in trouble...not like I was going to change my prediction anyway

Washington State has been shut out 3 of the last 4 games, and allowed 58 in three of those games, Washington has allowed 58 points 0 times this year, so the better D wins, lol, these teams are just happy to be talked about for a game where one of them has to win, right Donovan? It's kind of funny that they went to overtime and I made a Donovan McNabb joke

BYU just hasn't been a good team on the road, 28-27 at Washington, 34-14 at Utah St. (Utah beat them by 48), 7-32 loss at TCU, 45-42 at Colorado St. (Utah beat them by 33), both had close games at Air Force haha, U-T-A-H, UTES!, UTES!, UTES!

3 of Iowa's 4 losses have come on the road but they were all by 3 or less....and Minnesotta has lost 3 in a row, they're on a slide and they haven't hit the ground yet as far as I can tell crap...i have to look this one up...DAMN 55-0, lol

South Florida has been stinking it up for 3 weeks in a row...I'll throw them in the boat with Minnesotta damn you South Florida

Winners in Bold

Is it wrong for me a Louisville fan to wish that my team does not win another game this year so they might fire their coach at the end of the seasson for 2 straight years without a bowl apperance.

Oh, and we'll take Wake at home (fingers crossed), since I really am taking a shot in the dark here...both of these teams kill me.

Bib's College Pick 'em: Round 7

First off I'd like to apologize about last week's picks....the worst record I've ever posted making picks in my life...ouch, I still have an ice pack on my pride today.

But I shall return for a big week....hopefully!  So call up your bookie for these locks!

 

Is this the resurgence of the team Larry Coker ran into the ground?  He who is not french says yes.

Bowden goes like Bill Russell and rebounds big time.

Cinci goes big at home and eats up the kittens of Pitt.

Do the Lions of the Nittany valley rebound or cave?  The team that got waxed by Ohio State is not going into Happy Valley for a W.  Joe Pa gets my vote, yet again.

LSU kicks Houston in the Nutts with a big win to try to get a decent bowl appearance.

Bradford will out perform Harrell, and the Sooners make a mess of the big 12 south.

Arizona is great at spoiling an Oregon school's season, so yet again Tuitama comes up clutch to beat the Beavers looking ahead to the civil war game.

Do I have to pick a winner in the Apple Cup?  I think we, as football fans, are the real losers here if we watch.  I'll go with UW, as I am a huge Jake Locker fan (I know he's broken, but he's the only good player on either team) Strong case here for WSU to be the worst team in the history of NCAA D1 ball.

Max Hall comes into Salt Lake and leads the Mormies over the Utes in the Holy War. I think I'm pulling for BYU since I really don't want to see a WAC team steal a BCS bid from SEC or Big 12 #2.

Gophers dig in deep at home and pull out a win in a surprisingly good game.

I'll take the home team in a battle of teams that are not nearly as good as their record indicates.

Ball State, Fresno, VA, and Pat White win in the bonus games.
