My Picks : 8-4

Writing a paper and a cover letter for my resume right now so incase I dont get around to actual analysis tomorrow I'm going to pick G tech simply because I hate Clemson

Well that worked out for me

Perhaps it's not a shocker that this is a tough call for me, now of course OK state is a good team but the Big 12 isnt know for their defense, I'd go with Georgia easily in most cases but 10 points against a Big 12 team? young QB, running game didnt do much, offensively both teams put up similar numbers . . . you know what. I need a reason to pick against my team and right now I dont have one. GO GAMECOCKS! 20-17


  North Carolina played Citadel, cant get much from that. However Uconn squeaked out a win against Ohio . . . not Ohio St. Ohio. for somer reason i have the Uconn D on my fantasy team but Im taking the heels. A week to retune their offense and they should be good to go this week. 35-24

Wow 12-10 on a holding in the endzone . . . anytime an O-lineman decides a game its not a good thing. rough week ahead for that guy

What!?! whoa! the Vols destroyed WKU!!! lol Kiffin is a donkey (slang term for one anyway) Of course hes going to run up a score, I'm not impressed by that. Meanwhile UCLA had a great game and didnt run up a score. I think this is a close one but the Bruins pull it out

haha, down goes Kiffin

  Alright I have to pick one team I hate I guess, I'll take the Irish. I just dont think the Wolverines are quite there yet, young teams are going to be inconsistent, although if Clausen feels a little pressure, be it a d-lineman bearing down on him or a deficit anything can happen. 34- 24

One miss I can live with . . .

Alright I like Navy, I wont lie but Ohio St. has to do better than that for me. perhaps they were practicing for USC and didnt study up on the Navy O but eh, I dont like it. I have to take the Trojans (usually do) I think it will be an entertaining game though. 38- 27

Lol, wow, who saw a last minute USC victory coming?

  First game where I dont hate or love one of the teams . . . This game could be ugly, a low scoring affair more than likely. its a west coast team travelling cross-country to play a noon game. I think they had a horrid record in these games last year. I think these two are evenly matched but in the end, homefield takes it. 17-14

Another nail-biter, Wake pulled it out at the end.  didnt look good for a while there.

Alright two teams i know little about. both got wins but neither was that impressive. My boy Tommy Beecher (started the opener for my gamecocks last year is) is now the QB at liberty and was 22-33 with over 200 yards against WV, App St. made the ECU game look close but they scored most of their points in the 4th quarter . . . eh, I think Pinkney puts it together this week 28-20

Well it was close for a while but a swing and a miss . . .

I dont know why people are impressed with a Minn. win over Syracuse . . . in OT no less . . . against a QB who hasnt played football in 5 years. I like the Minn. O but I think the D is what does them in. 40-35

ah, close one but it didnt work out for me

Easy choice . . . they dominated their oponent UCF barely beat Samford. Plus Favre's alma-mater is getting their top WR back . . . hopefully. 35-17

closer than i expected but I got what i wanted

For me it comes down to State being too one-dimensional and not overwhelmingly strong at that one dimension. SEC is all about D. Auburn keeps it. Auburn wins it. 20-10

Alright this one helped me out a little

Toledo threw for over 400 yards on the Boilermaker defense, they didnt run the ball at all so losing the only RB you have not such a big deal for Oregon. Purdue ran the ball well but Oregon has a solid run D. I think the ducks recover here. 34-24

Another of the last minute finishes. and then a near brawl at the end lol

Bib's College Pick 'em 2: Round 2

No offense taken Bib. I have to admit that pumping gas thing thing was wrong, but very funny. I understand why you don't like Kiffin neither would I if he did not coach the Vols.

Bib's College Pick 'em 2: Round 2

dont act like you didnt hear about what he told that recruit

"if you go to South Craolina you'll spen the rest of your life pumping gas"

Bush league and weak

and then the other unnecessary flapping of gums

one thing to be confident and want to generate buzz, but he's asking to be hated by everybody in the league

not smart

not smart at all.

I was on his side with the raiders thing too

I hope they lose all of their SEC games lol

no offense

Did you see on the thread my post got deleted by administrator?  I posted exactly what I put here.  Apparently saying double-you-tee-eff is deletable.

Bib's College Pick 'em 2: Round 2

LA I didnt have a great slate to choose from lol

I wanted to put the OK State houston game on there because I think it will be good (as does the ESPN analyst) but nobody was going to pick houston

so i tried to pick games that could go either way

Bib's College Pick 'em 2: Round 2

South Carolina at #21 Georgia - For some reason, I'm not feeling good about Georgia, they seem to be playing very lacklusterly (is that a word?) and sluggishly, or at least thats what I saw last week vs OSU.  But South Carolina cannot win any big games, and with a chance to beat a top 25 team will fail again.

#19 North Carolina at Connecticut - Why is North Carolina ranked in football?  Are they good and I just don't know it?  Seems unlikely.  Just for fun, I'll call an 'upset' and we can watch these two teams switch places in the rankings.

UCLA at Tennessee - Tennessee has the vigor and energy of Lane Kiffin leading the team! YAHHHH!!!  He's just a coach.  Coaches don't score touchdowns or stop them.  But UCLA traveling cross country to play in Tennessee with a fired up crowd, really tough for a subpar team.  Home team wins, but this is by no means a great Tennessee team.

#18 Notre Dame at Michigan - Michigan sucks.  Any further questions?

#3 USC at #8 Ohio St. - May not be a repeat of the 35-3 demolition of the Buckeyes like last year, instead both teams will score more points, maybe 49-10.  Do I really need to bold my pick here?

Stanford at Wake Forest - Stanford is playing with a freshman quarterback, traveling across the country.  Inexperience everywhere.  Wake gets its first win.

East Carolina at West Virginia - This is a tough call.  WVU has really dropped off, but can ECU provide more big-time magic like they did last year?  Doubful.

Air Force at Minnesota - As badly as I want to pick Minny to lose, I can't see the Air Force beating anyone from any major conference.  After the Big 3 in the Mountain West, theres a big drop off after that.

UCF at Southern Miss - Why is this game in here?  I mean...WTF? 

Mississippi St. at Auburn - See above.  These two teams are garbage.  Played a 3-2 game last year.  Pathetic.

Purdue at Oregon - Oregon looked really bad vs Boise, I mean not even close to the level they were at last year.  Their rushing attack that was like #3 in the country?  Nonexistent.  I'm hoping for a bounce back against Purdue with their soft D.
