Bib's College Football Pick em 5: Week 7

Posted on: October 20, 2012 2:03 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!

I have created the blogger page where I will post the games but did not put the games on there this week. Gotta figure out how I want to do it still. I will try some things out this coming week. Here is the site: [Bib's Sports] bookmark or whatever you need to do. If you cant access  it let me know and we'll figure out a way to get you the games. Im thinking I can get more people involved in the future now that Im not restricted to CBS. We shall see. 


My Picks last week: 7-5

 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. 1-0

 Why? Because why not.. No really. Northwestern has not really been impressive. I like the Minnesota D 1-1 -__- 

 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. oooooowweeee 2-1

 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. 3-1 not a tough game at all..

 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.  3-2 they started right but... yeah

 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. 4-2 controversy is cool

 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 As usual i pick a lot of upsets and take away from the one I got right 5-2

 I almost wanted to take Washington but I think the Trojans pull this one out... 6-2 I started so well...

 Tough situation but TCU without their starting QB against an offensively beastly team is not looking good on paper... 6-3

 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. 6-4 That was tough... 

 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. 7-4 A&M let them make it intersting. 

 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 7-5 argh

Bib's College Football Pick em 5: Week 7

 Gig 'em!
 Iowa State has been playing well, but Oklahoma State is at home and that's a tough place to play.
 This might be the most competitive game of the day...could go either way. Coin flip time.
 I'm not sold on the Terps
 Michigan should win this game, but it's going to be closer than most think...homefield wins it.
 This is a chance for Nebraska to show that they are still relevant. I'm tempted to pick NW, but then there's the bounce back factor.
 Pachall suspended but guess what...Boykin is a good QB too. TCU surprised me last week -- not this week.
 Signs point to the Hilltoppers. I'm going the other way.
 Duke let me down last week. North Click has looked impressive as of late.
 The battle for Ohio in the Everyone Else category goes to Cincy.
 Optimus Prime
 Washington looked better in their common losses and they beat Stanford. We'll see.

Bib's College Football Pick em 5: Week 7

 I like A&M. Im glad theyre in the SEC. This year they are an anomoly in the SEC. All offense no defense. So far they've won but they barely beat Ole Miss. Beat a struggling Arkansas badly and fought hard against Florida in game 1 before losing. I dont see Manziel lasting long if he is going to want to try to run all over the field on LSU. This game is the prototypical game where SEC teams show why they are better. I always hate LSU but they just win. It is what it is. 

 The Big 12 is upset city because their teams are so different. Iowa State struggled with an offensive minded Tech team while giving better defensive team battles. I think they lose this one too. Too much firepower from the Cowboys. 

 While you may not be overly impressed by SC. I have not been overly impressed by Florida. Yes they beat LSU and we didn't but each game easily could have gone either way. Each loser had a costly turnover late. Sure Lattimore being out hurts but unlike Florida we don't depend solely on our running game. Florida is going to want to get outside on our D line and that wont work. LSU had success because they ran straight at us with power. I NEED THIS GAME!

 This was tough. State has beatten better teams but these teams are pretty much even. I always like the better defense at home (before you call me out SC is ranked 11, Florida 12 lol) Tipping poing was that State's QB will turn the ball over. Maryland's D is tough. 

 Michigan seems to have hit their stride while Michigan State is just confusing. Better team at home. I'll take them. 

 Nebraska has had 2 weeks to think about how Ohio State whooped them. They need to come out and respond against Northwestern. Meanwhile this is an opportunity for the Wildcats. 

 This should be a good game but I believe in Tech. I believe they'll play good enough D and the offense will produce just fine against TCU's. Will likely come down to turnovers. 

 better defensive team at home. I almost wanted to put the BCS ranking for every team on the list. Western Kentucky is #30. I put this game on because I figured more people were aware of ULM this year but Western Kentucky is just as good. This should be a good game.  

 North Carolina has a strong team... Duke was fools gold sadly. I just looked at their schedule. They may not get win 6. 

 Any time a ranked team is on the road at an unknown craziness can happen so that's how this game got on here. Toledo hasn't upset anybody or even dominated any of their weak opponents. They will try to win in a shootout. Cinci can't let this be a shoot out. Need to get some stops on D and go from there. Shouldn't be an issue but you never know. 

 West Virginia could get this upset... Kansas State's D isnt that strong but West Virginia just doesn't play any at all. Kansas State will likely try to control the clock. Not let WV get going. Ths game will be in the upper 20's to 30's more than likely if K State gets their way. If WV strikes first then 40's will happen. Regardless it's hard to beat a good team with no defense. 

 Tough game to call. Arizona has lost back to back games to tough defensive teams but barely. Washington... Nope Arizona just makes sense here.
