Bib's College Football Pick em 5: Week 5

Posted on: October 10, 2012 9:18 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!

This week's games!

Im working on putting the games on blogger. I will put a link to the new blog in the comments.


My Picks last week: 8-4

 Defensive battle. Rutgers has the better offense. I'll take them at home. 1-0

 When did Va Tech decide to suck? 2-0

 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. 3-0

 Neither one of these teams makes sense lol. I loathe the ACC. Ill take Maryland. again, better D and at home. 4-0

 I expect TCU to take care of this one by 2 scores or so... Meant to take Iowa state with TCU QB out... dammit 4-1

 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. 5-1

 I feel like LSU is due... I want it to be us but I wont be greedy. This should be a tight one too. 6-1

 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. 7-1
 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. 7-2

 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. 7-3 Three dropped TD's early. Killed them. 

 im picking a lot of upsets.. but some i dont feel are upsets really... Im picking the better team. Wow... 7-4

 Definitely not picking this upset though... lol 8-4

Bib's College Football Pick em 5: Week 5

In my haste, I forgot about the TCU QB. Before it's too late, I would like to change my pick from TCU to Baylor. Again, I am picking 
  to roll, big time. I'm not too sure about that Duke/VT game, but I will stay where I'm at on that one. Have a great day and good luck to everyone who's not ahead of me. Tongue out

Bib's College Football Pick em 5: Week 5

 I meant to pick Iowa state last week but Im not trying to make that up to them by picking them here... need more offense to win this one I think. 

 Why? Because why not.. No really. Northwestern has not really been impressive. I like the Minnesota D

 That Texas defense (or lack there of) is why Im taking the Sooners... Sooners will get a couple more stops than Texas will be able to. 

 Should be a tough game... I really have no reason for picking Wisconsin. That Michigan blow out for Purdue probably tipped the scales for me. 

 Yep.... I really just picked Duke football over Virginia Tech... Tech has shown no signs of righting the ship. This game is huge for both to see if "this is the year" going in opposite directions.  

 Reaaaally tough one. Stanford had kept all of their opponnents in the teens until the Arizona game. This comes down to Stanford's only loss having come in thier only road game... and against a defensive team. A defensive team whose defense is not as good as Stanford's and offense is not either. Irish it is. 

 The best defense WV played against was Maryland and that game was 31-21. Im not sure Tech's D lives up to the hype truly.. BUT their offense can hang much like Baylor and Texas and it LOOKS like they have a better defense than those two. Wouldnt be surprised to see this go either way. UPSET SPECIAL

 I almost wanted to take Washington but I think the Trojans pull this one out... 

 Tough situation but TCU without their starting QB against an offensively beastly team is not looking good on paper... 

 Not as tough a choice as it was to pick us last week. I already thought we could beat LSU... which is why I picked Florida to beat them. Their defense will be the best we've faced but the real story is that they have almost literally no offense. They have a run game but their run game is not as good as Georgia's and well you see what we did to Georgia. It helps that they are at home but the key for me is  that our offense is versatile. We will keep LSU off balance. I expect something like 28-13 SC and a #2 BCS ranking. 

 Louisiana Tech has been winning but their defense is allowing a lot of points. 24 is the lowest they've kept anybody. Their wins have been through outscoring people with their #11 offense in the country..... A&M has the #12 offense and a much better defense. Think it's time for Tech to be humbled. 

 This is the "do you belive in Mississippi State" game. I kinda do... but I believe Tennesee is overdue for something good to happen. Id rather it come here and not against SC lol
