My Picks : 5-7

(dont know why but I'm putting scores)

I know, you're shocked. but seriously. The Gamecocks beat NC State 31-0 just a year ago, we should have gotten better, now the Wolfpack should have as well, but I just think in the end our defense is just going to be too much for State 24-20

Not quite the way I expected it to go but a 4 point W none-the-less

Moore and the Broncos beat Oregon last year 37-32 so the ducks come in with a little something to prove. two explosive offenses but I'll take the ducks 42-37

That game was hard to watch . . . and then Blount after that game. What was that???

my third stright home team but really none of the 3 (with the possible exception of Boise) is a real tough place to play so I dont feel I need to change anything because of that. I like the Baylor QB, a lot and these ACC teams eh, i never trust them. another high scoring one though 40-28

Well not as big but a Baylor win none the less

alright first home team. Yes the SEC has great defense, yes the Big 12 has great offense and not so great defense but OK state bringing back what they bring back should be running like a well-oiled machine. I never trust a new QB (which Georgia brings). So I think the dogs may get exposed in this one. 45-21

alright it's apparent that I gave people too much credit offensively for the first game of the year but again, OK state won so I'm happy

I wont deny it, I hate the Irish, and their head coach Char-lie. . . little jingle there. Alright why nevada? that Notre Dame QB loves to turn the ball over, and I think he'll do a good job of that in game one here. The Nevada QB is a stud on the other hand. Now Nevada needs to get the lead first to put the pressure on the Notre Dame QB but other than that I have no problem picking Nevada in this one. Weis is cocky. 38-28

  Foot in mouth . . . yeah Nevada got shut down. good job Weis

Missouri won last year right? what? Oh Maclin and that QB whats his face are gone? yeah, Juice gets lose, Illini win.

This outcome completely shocked me, guess the staff down at Missouri has something going down there

you dont know how bad I wanted to pick BYU but I just cant do it. Sooners win 48-28

RAAAAAAHHHH!!! i wanted to pick BYU and as expected they won. thats how my upsets work, I want to pick it and dont then it happens, I pick it and it doesnt and I look like an idiot . . . perhaps the Bradford injury determined the outcome

I believe this makes me the only one to pick Tech thus far. I hear Alabama's D is great. but what about the offense? I hear they have a heck of a WR but eh, tech has a good D and great special teams. I think special teams makes the difference. 28-21

At one point it looked like Tech had them, I have no idea what happened after that

Arizona can score . . . their D should be able to do enough against the Chipps. 31-24

Arizona took care of business

Sorry terps . . . 38-17

Yes, Terps got punished for last year

from what I can tell the Rutgers QB situation is unsettled. the cinci offense however is fine. I also see that Cinci's D is all new. tough call for me. I hate bad QB situations but I think the Rutgers run game may make up for it, especially with an all new D on the other side. . . . . . . . . whatever Rutgers it is. toughest call for me so far. 31-28

and I went against my better judgement

I dont know what to expect from Miami or FSU for that matter . . . knoles it is. 28-24

well it was close . . .
