Bib's College Football Pick em 5: Week 5

Posted on: October 5, 2012 12:29 am
Alright so here's how this is going to go. 

I'll come up with 12 games every week. I'll try to have them up on Monday or Tuesday of each week. I'll try to choose games between bowl caliber teams and choose the best 12 matchups I can find overall. 

You'll pick the winners and post them here or on the GB10 thread, PM them to me, just get them to me. Whether you post them here or not, I will add them to the blog to make them easy to keep up with.

Good Luck!

Im working on putting the games on blogger. Part of why im late this week is because I wanted to do it this week but I think it's going to be next week. 


My Picks last week: 10-2

 I usually go with the defensive team in these situations and this is why I hate the ACC... I think Miami is feeling good about themselves after a questionable start. BOOOM 1-0

 West Virginia First big 12 game for WV. There will be no defense played in this game. I like WV because they are at home.. also becaues Geno Smith has yet to throw a pick. wow 2-0

 Not a lot of tests for these teams... Ill go with Northwestern here. They have at least played real teams. NW 3-0

 This looks like it will be the newcomers to the SEC's first win. Arkansas does have their QB back but their defense is terrible. A&M hung with Florida and I think they were more prepared for the transition to the SEC than Mizzou was. SO WOW 4-0

 Wake is just bad... Duke is less bad. lol. yeah 5-0

 I really wasnt sure I should consider Cinci as a threat to Va Tech but I did... and now Im picking them. both teams played Pitt... Cinci took care of them. Tech got taken care of. I dont trust tech's offense right now to produce points. 6-0

 I will be pulling for Tennessee today but Georgia is the better team and they are at home. I like their balance. Maybe Bray can light them up though. 7-0 Undecided

 Against what I feel about state right now im going to pick the defensive team in this one and hope the offense produces. neither team leaves a good taste in my mouth so I felt going with the better defensive team was the way to go. argh... 7-1

 This was tough to call. Tech is ranked second in offense and 1st in defense but they havent really played anybody. I ended up choosing them because I cant say anything negative aboutt hem defensively and historically they have been the better team. I think this could be a close one. Somewhere in the 30's for both teams perhaps 8-1

 This could easily be an upset. Texas will allow some points and we all know Oklahoma state will score some. Also helps that state is the home team in this one. In the end the Arizona loss is what did it for me. 9-1

 I really picked some tough games this week lol. First week I had to get rid of games rather than go back through to find more. Anyway. Im taking Nebraska becaue they take care of business when they are supposed to. Every Wisconsin game has been close. Cant pick them in a game like this and feel good about it. 10-1

 Arizona's scores are all over the place... Oregon state has lucked up and played two teams when they were ranked and beat them. Both games were close. Here's to Arizona playing this game straight and bouncing back after that embarassment against the Ducks. Oregon State will have proven themselves if they win this game. 10-2... should have gone with state

Bib's College Football Pick em 5: Week 5



Bib-I think it would be best to just give me a 6-6 last week. The picks were late so it is only fair to everyone else that the picks count as loses. I appreciate you giving me the benefit of the doubt and posting my total picks with the asterisk, but to be consistent with previous years and maintain the integrity of your picks, I think it's best those games just count as loses. Anyways....there's plenty of time for me to come back from this bad week so no big deal.

I meant to do it that way. adjustment will be made next week.

Bib's College Football Pick em 5: Week 5

 Defensive battle. Rutgers has the better offense. I'll take them at home. 

 When did Va Tech decide to suck?  

 This was a realllly tough one.... in the end it came down to Arizona having lost to Oregon State last week. A defensive team. Stanford also lost last week and should come out focused for this one. 

 Neither one of these teams makes sense lol. I loathe the ACC. Ill take Maryland. again, better D and at home. 

 I expect TCU to take care of this one by 2 scores or so... 

 Oklahoma had two weak opponents then took two weeks off before the K state game... they werent ready. They should get their ish together for this one... another two week break though. 

 I feel like LSU is due... I want it to be us but I wont be greedy. This should be a tight one too. 

 This is a top 15 defense vs a top 15 offense. an average offense vs an average defense. I always lean toward defense in these cases. Especially when the defense is at home. Score should be something like 31-28. It will come down to mistakes and I think the SC defense is more likely to force Murray into those. Our boys will be all over Murray. My only concern is that we may play too aggressively and let them run all over us. We shall see. Go gamecocks. 
 This could end up being an ugly week for a lot of people lol. I could see some 3's and 4's. Anyway Baylor hung with WV more than i thought they would... Texas is a better team. 1 pick between both QB's coming into this game. 

 I cant believe im doing this after the way the season started but Im taking Miami to get the upset here. I think Miami has too much firepower and a lot of confidence coming into this game and pull this off. 

 im picking a lot of upsets.. but some i dont feel are upsets really... Im picking the better team. 

 Definitely not picking this upset though... lol
