Apparently CBS is getting rid of blogs slowly which is why I couldnt edit last week's. Im working on moving the blog to blogger and then having a way for you all to get to it there. If you have any suggestions let me know. 

Thanks. 

My Picks last week: 7-5

 This early in the season I think its just safe to go with the big boy in this one. Each team dismantled a MAC team week 1. 

 Obviously not impressed by what Miami did against BC...

 Mississippi State at home in this one... this may be becuase Auburn upset me by losing to Clemson... smh

 I wish I had seen A&M play before having to make this pick but going on how Florida played last week and the fact that they are going to be on the road for this one... and im sure the A&M fans will get up for this, as well as the players I think this will be a very good game. I think A&M may get the jump on Florida here. 

 This should be a shoot out. I just think Michigan needs it a little bit more and pulls it out. 

 Give me Nevada. They actually played... and beat a real team. 

 Washington was not impressive last week... dont expect LSU to have any issues here. 

 Im learning very quickly that these conference changes have not been easy to keep up with... State is in the Mountain West and handled Houston week 1. They are better than people realize but the fact tht they did what they did to Houston Im sure Tech will be prepared. Think this game starts out close but Tech gets a 2 score lead and goes from there. 

 Give me the Huskers. UCLA is better but they need to stumble here. 

 Georgia didnt get off to a great start but they finished strong enough for me. All things considered Im pulling for Mizzou... I hate that Georgia has a weak schedule. 

 I need to believe that Vanderbilt is good.... so yeah beat Northwestern please lol

 F it. Duke pulls the upset!!! lol

#15  Wisconsin @ #13  Michigan State  


My Picks: 

 
Im going to take NIU at home here. Ohio has the better defense but based on the way each team finished I think NIU has more steam. 

 It would be epicly epic if UCLA were to make it happen but... yeah lol

 Houston comes in hot having beatten two of the better teams in the conference convincingly when I thought they would be challenged. Meanwhile So Miss has had some close ones of late. Cant pick the upset here. 

 Poor Syracuse has lost 4 in a row... Pitt has a couple of losses down the stretch but both are at least respectable. 

 It seems Cinci has gotten their ish together.. might not be in time to steal that Big East crown though. 

 I guess K state is the pick but they appear to play to the level of their competition and Iowa State is unpredictable here. 

 Im sure Baylor will find a way to have this be a close game... or maybe Griffin will finally make some kind of statement. 

 I honestly think Georgia might have enough offense to get it done... However they are inconsistent, and LSU is not. 

 Hawaii is kinda sputtering down the stretch here and with the honor code at BYU I dont think they'll be getting too crazy. 

 Oklahoma's 2 losses are to teams with all offense and no defense...................

 Clemson just got beat by two teams that run the ball and play defense... Virginia Tech runs the ball and plays defense. I expect similar results. 

 Wisconsin seems to have tightened up here at the end... damn shame. They could have been in the ship had they not played

#22  Notre Dame @ #6  Stanford Stanford 28-14


My Picks: 10-2

 
Iowa lost to Minnesotta with a running QB... Nebraska also has a better defense and is at home. 

 Tulsa's 3 losses were to Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Boise. Not exactly bad losses. meanwhile houston's best game was between UCLA and SMU... yeah. Tulsa also is at home and Houston has had some struggles on the road against Louisiana Tech (1 point win) and UTEP (won by a TD) Houston's offense is #1 against that weak schedule while Tulsa's is #18 despite the 3 top teams theyve played. Should be close with Houston knowing this is thier biggest test but I like Tulsa's chances. 

 I was fully prepared to take Arkansas until I looked at their road performances.... 3 point win AT vanderbilt, 5 point win AT ole miss. and of course the Bama loss was on the road also. Theyve played well and i think they have the talent to beat LSU but they seem to go down a level on the road. LSU wins something like 27-17

 What happened to AZ state??? Wow

 I wanted to take Tech but they come limping in here. I guess Georgia kinda does too having barely beatten Kentucky but Georgia got it rolling late in the year while Tech kinda cooled off. 

 Im going to take the cuse... both coming in off of some rough games but The cuse are at home and had two weeks to prepare for this one. 

 Very tempted to take Virginia but I cant... Tech needs to get to the ACC title game and get revenge against Clemson. They also have a shot at the NCAA title

 Alabama still has a shot at the national title... they may look to run it up in this one. 

 Wisconsin blew their shot at the NCAA title for me... and I'd love for Penn State to get there despite their turmoil but Wisconsin seems to have recovered from their little slide now that they have ruined their shot so they should take care of business here. 

 When the opponent of the SEC team is the better defensive team that proabably doesnt bid well for the SEC team... lol State should take this. 

 It took me a while to come to this decision. I did a lot of intesive research. I even talked to the coaches. Interviewed severl players, developed a formula. But you know that is complete bull. 18 wins is the most combined in the series history and we're both looking to hit 10 wins... Clemson's starting tackle will play despite his MCL strain. If he isnt 100% I could see 8 sacks happening. NC state got 6. If we can get pressure on Boyd it should be a W, if not it could get ugly. I know Spurrier has some tricks up his sleeve on offense as well. Should be a fun one. 

 Early in the year I argued with somebody about Notre Dame and I think I said they'd have a good year because they had a weak schedule... fastforward and they had some tough games.. but they lost all but one of them. Stanford gets this W and pads the resume as they hold out hope for the title game.

#13  Kansas State @ #23  Texas Kansas State 17-13


My Picks: 9-3

 
Ouch... I just realized Illinois has lost 4 straight... I doubt they turn it around against Wisconsin.

 Havent gotten to see Nebraska really this year but they arent as good as I thought they would be and I figured that out pretty early on. i wasnt impressed with what they did last week and Michigan is at home and has been pretty consistent. I'll say they got caught sleeping on the road against Iowa but this happens in sports. Other games theyve done what was expected. Same here. 

 
Cinci's last 3 games have been decided by 3 points which means to me that they're playing to their opponent. Both have a 3 point win over USF and a loss to WV but I think I like Rutgers in this one. You know what you're going to get from them and that defense and Cinci will likely play to them as it is. 

 Im thinking Iowa will win something like 28-17... Purdue is coming off of the big win over Ohio State and have only lost one at home but I trust Iowa more to perform here. 

 Alright Penn State you're away from home, you're a week removed. Neither of you is exactly impressive. Make it happen. 

 I spend a lot of time picking against Miami... going to roll with them on the road. jacorry doesnt seem to  be as much of a wild card as he used to be. 

 That awkward moment when Texas Tech forgot how to score and Missouri didnt... and oh yeah Tech still has no defense either. 

 I went back and forth on this one... I was going to pick FSU because they are rolling... then Virginia because theyre consistent. In the end FSU has a strong D, and theyre great against the run, which virginia is going to need to do well if they plan to win. I say Virginia wins if they can turn FSU over but I'll roll with Florida State. 

 Boise showed weakness in only beating Air Force by 11... The TCU game was the last game I took off of last week's game list. A loss here by Boise would have surprised me less if they hadnt just lost. They should regroup and come out angry. 

 Barely beating Missouri and Kansas coming into this game. Not exactly enticing me to pick the upset here... 

 I've been building up to this all year... I felt like they were going to shake things up when they started getting hot. I wanted to pick them against Stanford but I wanted Luck in the BCS but didnt. here I have no reason to hold back. Besides the win over Stanford, which looked worse than it was for Stanford, Oregon hasnt been dominating teams. These teams played Washington in back to back weeks, each allowing them 17, USC scored a TD more but we'll call it even. Oregon did this on the road but eh. Now weather may become a factor apparently as it may snow in Eugene but the trojans strength on D is their run D which is oregon's strength on offense. I like the matchup. Should be a good game. 

 Im not sure what happened last week at Missouri but Texas hasnt been playing bad besides that and K state is coming off of a battle with A&M

Bib's College Football Pick 'em 4: Week 11

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!

#7  Oregon @ #4  Stanford Oregon 53-50

  UCLA (5-4) @  Utah (5-4) Utah 31-6


My Picks: 8-4

 Honestly... with the fact that OK State manages to have a worse defense than Tech. Having only held one opponent under 24 points. and their having an explosive offense, i wouldnt be uber surprised if Tech won.. however after losing 41-7 to iowa state... kinda hard to roll with tech. 

 West Virginia's losses (besides LSU of course) make no sense but whatever. I'll go with the team that's at home and does what they are supposed to do weekly on the field 

 I'll take the Nits... theyre at home, defense is why they win Those guys will play angry. I want them to win this game anyway and Nebraska has confused me all year. Joe Pa, Joe Pa

 I was fully prepared to take Iowa but none of their wins besides the one last week impress me. and they had that loss to minnesotta. yes Im aware that state barely beat minnesotta themselves but im more familiar with this team. 

 I'll take K state to rebound at home... we can forgive them for losing to Ok state and OU. 

 4 straight dominant wins for the noles means they've gotten themselves together and theyre at home... and I still dont trust miami.

 Im picking Auburn though I kinda feel Georgia is the better team. Georgia has had close wins against the bottom feeders of the SEC while Auburn has taken care of business against them. yes I benefit (potentially) from Georgia losing and that helped sway me. I feel this well be a one score game... could go either way. 

 That purdue loss by Illinois hurts my soul.. I usually look at the last 3 games first. Then I see that illinois has skated by in almost all of their wins. Michigan it is. 

 SC has hit a groove and I look to see them continue rolling. 

 In hindsight I probably shouldnt have put this game on here... unless you think bama will get caught slipping somehow. Oh well. 

 We saw USC almost do it to Stanford but they were at home and this is on the road... Oregon has a better offense than USC but USC has a better defense. You've gotta be able to stop/slow Stanford to beat them I dont think a shoot out is the way to go

 Tough one to pick... I hate picking defensive teams for some reason. UCLA has been hot but Utah has some impressive wins also... I'll take them at home.

My Picks: *the picks in bold somehow got erased earlier but those were the picks I made.* 8-4

 
How one beats Oklahoma and then gets manhandled by Iowa State is beyond me but Tech did it... kinda hard to pick them after that. 

 This game is pretty evenly matched honestly... so I'll just take the home team. 

 I said that UNC was better offensively and defensively or something like that. blah blah blah they lost. 

 I picked Oklahoma cus I said they know they still can win the Big 12 and wont get caught slipping again... 

 I picked Rutgers because this is an offense vs defense matchup and the defense wins most of those... although Rutgers has bitten me twice. 

 I dont even remember if I picked Missouri or Baylor... I think Missouri. I remember saying that all 3 of Baylor's losses were on the road and that was my only reason for even hesitating to pick Missouri over them. 

 Arkansas could very well win this game... but I dont see why yall are all on them seeing as how theyve had close games with Troy, and in the past two weeks Ole Miss, and Vanderbilt. Meanwhile yes we only beat Tennessee 14-3... but we didnt have to score if we held them to 3. Mississippi state was Shaw's first road test. Im sure spurrier was playing it safe. I predict this game will be in the 20's something like 24-28, 28-35 something like that. SC has the #3 pass D in the country because our corners and safeties are ballhawks. Spurrier plays to the competition so he'll let shaw throw this week however I think we found that shaw is better when we call designed runs for him. Im using this game to decide how seriously I take my team's BCS chances. 

 Arizona state has beatten the teams they should have.. lost to Oregon on the road and Illinois on the road in a close one. I cant be mad at them for that. Here they play a UCLA team that is coming off of a nice win against Cal but AZ state is pretty consistent. Theyre the better team so they will get it done. 

 I want this to be a close/fun game but K State's d didnt look so tough last week against OU and if they are going to play like that theres no way they beat OK State either. 

 I based my pick mostly on Notre Dame having a solid passing D... seeing as how Wake likes to air it out. 

 I feel like LSU is going to force some turnovers... I'll admit I was going to pick them going in and then realized Bama was performing better than I thought but LSU feels like theyve turned up their D a bit since the beginning of the season even. 

 If Washington had a decent defense I could pick them... but they dont. So I wont.
