Bib's College Football Pick 'em 4: Week 1

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!

*Sunday*

 Marshall @ #24  West Virginia West Virginia 34-13

*Monday* 

 Miami (FL) @  Maryland Maryland 32-24
  

My Picks: 9-3

 I think UCLA has a shot at challenging Houston or else I wouldnt have put the game on here but UCLA had QB questions coming into the season while Keenum is one of the best in the nation. He'll take care of business at home. Cool

 As much as I hate the Irish Im not sure South Florida is anywhere near ready for them. However if Notre Dame turns the ball over and gives USF chances or keeps the score around the low 20's I could see USF stealing this one with ol Skip building that resume a litte more. USF wins with their defense. Undecided 5 ND turnovers = USF doing it with their defense

 Im going to take Boise here, just so I can talk junk to my co-worker if they win. No seriously, this is a huge opportunity for this program to pad their end of the season resume with a little meat at the beginning. Im kinda disappointed that their starting safety is being replaced by a freshman in this game with a good QB on the other side but Boise recruits like a major conference team. Im sure there wont be a huge droppoff. Cool

 I dont know a ton about these teams. I know Hawaii scores, but cant make stops.... and I know Colorado is hard to watch most of the time. lol Ill take Hawaii in a close one simply because I know they can score. Colorado could likely run on them simply because theyre bigger but I doubt theyll be that patient.  Cool

 Same as Notre Dame. As much as I hate them I cant pick against them here. Barkley is established and all that. They should get it done. Cool

 My initial choice was Northwestern with no doubt until I saw that they were going to be without their QB... BC has a solid defense. Their offenses are probably going to balance out with NW using the backup so Ill take BC to win this one at home. Undecided

 Bib did you really put this game on here??? yeah, I did. Any team with a new QB is prime to be upset in my opinion, this one in particular lost a lot on both sides of the ball. Utah State is also starting a new QB though so they balance out there. State has a great RB who missed all of last season with an injury and a seasoned O Line ready to block for him. They may be able to run on Auburn but this is a road game with new QB's. Auburn will most likely hold them off but dont be shocked if this is a game. Cool

 2 new QB's here.. Fresno is starting the younger brother of former Texans tackling dummy... i mean quarterback David Carr. fresno may have the better offense but Cal's defesnse should be stout still and this is a freshamn QB coming in against a "big boy." Although it appears Fresno fans may have similar numbers in the stands to the Cal fans Ill still take Cal. Cool

 BYU comes in here against an Ole Miss team that leaves me with a lot of Questions... BYU should be more ready for a game like this and with their Big 12 talks they cant afford to lose to an SEC bottom feeder. Cool

 I have no idea who's eligible for LSU these days. Theyre constantly in trouble. Oregon still tastes that loss to Cam Newton and Auburn last year. Theyve had all offseason to prepare to take that anger out on another SEC opponent. I dont like that QB for LSU anyway, I dont think he can hang if Oregon breaks 30 points... and they most likely will. Sealed

 Marshall almost pulled this upset last year... that said I doubt WV sleeps on them this time. They should take away any doubt early. Cool

 Ill take the Terps and their new overdone uniforms... Miami is. I mean, they... lol. They should be plenty distracted today. Sure the game takes a lot of that away but if they get down that stuff will come back. Maryland is always competitive despite how their roster looks. I cant explain it but they always manage to beat teams they shouldnt every year. If youre new to this. Ill tell you now that the ACC is my least favorite conference to pick. Cool

College Bball Pick 'em: Round 4 and Bowl Pickem

Alright so here's how this is going to go.

I'll come up with 12 games every week. I'll have them up on Monday or Tuesday of each week. I'll only try to use teams from Major conferences or small conference teams that have a shot at being in the NCAA tourney, and I'll only choose games that are to be played on Friday - Sunday.

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.

My thinking is that keeping up with the regular season will enhance your brackets come March.

as for the bowl pick 'em just submit your bowl picks before the game starts and you're good.

Good Luck!

My Basketball Picks: 6-6

Pretty evenly matched but NC has some better wins so Im willing to take them here. Cool

Gonna take the Hokies here. No bad losses and they destroyed Miss. State which pops off the page. Cool

both beat Georgetown and St. Johns 3 losses were close. Im taking the Irish because theyre at home Cool

Gonzaga should take care of business. Portland is good but theyve lost the games against more talented opponents which gonzaga qualifies as. Cool

Im pretty sure Pearl is out for this which should add to the team's emotion... Undecided

Gonna take the longhorns here. The USC loss is messing with my head but they take care of business otherwise. UConn has cooled off a bit as of late Undecided

Well neither team has been really impressive. Miami slightly more. Clemson is one of those teams that can play with anybody, and will also let anybody play with them. Hard to read so I'll go with the canes. Undecided

Ole Miss' best win is Penn State and thats just not gonna do it for me . . . Cool

Kansas State handily defeated the only two teams that beat Oklahoma state. I had other reasons but when i noticed this that pretty much took the rest of the research out of the equation. Undecided

Gotta go with the wildcats. It seems Stanford has turned it up since conference play started but I guess we'll see in this game just how much. Cool

Cleveland State seems to have taken care of business better in their wins. Valpo has a lot of close games against bad teams. Undecided

Nova might be overrated and Cinci underrated. We'll see at the end of the year but I like Cinci's defense. Nova has had a lot of close games against nobody opponents Wink

(35 games played)

Picking the more talented team better not backfire on me like it did with nebraska...Cool

I didnt like LSU all season. I have n idea how they won games. Their defense is great but I like A&M's offense and the way they closed out the year.Frown

Despite having lost to Tennesse to end the season I think Kentucky is the better team here. They have a good offense and Im aware of Pitt's defense but Kentucky plays in the SEC and has seen tough defneses and had success. Pitt would have to score to win. Frown

Was gonna go do research but.. yeah Nevada should take care of business...Cool

I think people are disillusioned into thinking Auburn has a good defense.. they dont. They have a couple good defensive players. Cam Newton IS the offense. Oregon meanwhile has the most productive offense in the land. Go Ducks...Cry

My Basketball Picks: 5-7 Yell

Should be going to the game but whatever... Evenly matched and we're the home team so. boomSurprised

Should be a good Horizon league matchup... i should probably take butler at home but why not the upset. Valpo is not afraid to put up pointsUndecided

Got to take the Lobos here. Dayton is an enigma to me. Close games to bad teams and no wins I can really call good wins.Undecided

Syracuse is undefeated but they have a lot of close gamesUndecided

Tough call.. i was gonna go with WV but Marquette being home after how they played Duke wouldnt let me...Cool

at first I thought these were both bad teams and questioned my own putting them on here but then i see that st. johns beat WV and Providence held thier own with the cuse... the latter being why i picked providenceYell

Yeah if I pick duke to lose it wont be at home against a team that lost by 16 to rutgers...Cool

Nova seems legit enough to me..Cool

Yeah Penn State scored 39 against maryland...Cool

Both teams have some horrible losses. LSU's are less horrible.Yell

Its hard for me to ever pick against Wisconsin. Just a well coached team.Yell

stanford for the hell of it Cool

(30 games played)

  Guess I'll take SMU since I have to rush my pick Undecided

Syracuses D... Cool

I dont remember anything the vols did this year...Cool

they had some stumbles but whatever... Undecided

Yeah, I picked Clemson... 0 times this year lol Cool

Just cant pick Jacorry Harris to win anything Cool

Should be a good game, I'll take UCF for the hell of it Cool

Gamecocks unanimous? really? Cry I mean you saw my doubt though lol

Neither team has a defense... but tech has a much better offense... Cool

Not the year they thought theyd have but should take care of mich state... everybody is gunning for the SEC though lol Cool

F it, I'll take Joe Pa... Undecided

Alright I'll take the defensive squad here. Michigan has no defense whatsover and offense is more likely to drop off with a long break than defense. Cool

Badgers vs TCU. This should be an awesome game... Im conflicted about who I want to win but I'll take Wisconsin. I have a hart time picking them to lose anything Undecided

almost went to do research for this game but then realized connecticut shouldnt be in a bowl game... Cool

I was pulling for Va Tech to make the BCS ever since they lost to boise but stanford is the better team here. Luck needs to cement himself as that #1 pick...Cool

didnt get the pick in but would have taken arkansas Frown

Picking the more talented team better not backfire on me like it did with nebraska...

My Bowl Picks: 10
(14 games played)

welp.. they had a chance Undecided

Everybody else took them... lol pook kicker Cool

Gonna take the Aztecs here. SDSt played a great season. Beat Air Force, Navy has been winnning but besides the East Carolina demolition nothing stands out for me. Cool

Two top 10 offenses but hawaii actually plays some defense... and they're home of couse. Surprised

idk, always an obscure game with an obscure team winnning lol. Toledo only lost to Northern Illinois in conference. FIU beat Troy. Cool when you know nothing about either team you cant really go wrong.

Air Force had a good year this year. I really like this team and think they match up well against G tech. G tech has the #1 rushing offense in the country... Air Force has the #2. Cool

Should be a really good game. West Virginia has a very strong defense and average offense while NC State is good on offense and defense. West Virginia really caught their stride at the end of the season. Undecided

Iowa played horribly down the stretch. Sure they've had time to correct their issues but.... Undecided

East Carolina held a team below 27 once the entire season. Their defense is terrible. This East Carolina team killed me in the iddle of the season. Maryland also has the fridge factor... maybe they play harder for their coach on his way out. Maybe they lay down...Cool

I'll compare Baylor to a baby Michigan. All offense, no defense to be found. Now they played 3 good teams at the end of their schedule but losing your last 3 isnt exactly gaining momentum going into the bowl season. Cool

I really wanted to take Arizona but couldnt here. I like them, wouldnt mind seeing them win. I could see them trying to get into a shootout but i think OK State has more firepower, despite thier lesser defense. Cool

College Bball Pick 'em: Round 2 and Bowl Pickem

Alright so here's how this is going to go.

I'll come up with 12 games every week. I'll have them up on Monday or Tuesday of each week. I'll only try to use teams from Major conferences or small conference teams that have a shot at being in the NCAA tourney, and I'll only choose games that are to be played on Friday - Sunday.

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.

My thinking is that keeping up with the regular season will enhance your brackets come March.

as for the bowl pick 'em just submit your bowl picks before the game starts and you're good.

Good Luck!

My Basketball Picks: 8-4

  Central Florida is balling. Theyve beatten two solid teams from big conferences in Florida and South Florida. Miami's loss to Rutgers is a mega head-scratcher. Im only hesitant not to pick them because they beat WV and Ole Miss... but both are not what they usually are so UCF it is.

Gonna take stanford because I wasnt shown a reason not to...

Heels getting a lot of love but honestly the only reason I even hesitate not to take the Horns is becaus UNC is the Home team... sorry heels

I'll take richmond here.. i may have outdone myself with this slate of games lol

Wichita's two losses are to ranked teams. I like them a lot. Former winthrop coach remember? lol

Gonna take the Hokies... both teams are a little off

Wow I looked at Wake's body of work and made a face like "ewww"Undecided lol then looked at Xavier's and did the same thing . . . Xavier is home though so boom.

Got no reason to pick against the better team here...

  UCLA lost to Montana... and not Hannah. Thats hard to forgive...

Both teams have played SC State and Charlotte. Coastal Played both better and they got Mike Holmes (former gamecock who was kicked off team for disciplinary reasons) for the LSU game and knocked them off. This team should be a tournament team this year.

I'll take the Aggies at home and coming off of a win against Washington...

Both teams are hard to read.... I'll take the cats.

My Basketball Picks: 8-4

Tough call. Louisville hasnt played anyone, UNLV has played a couple good teams but theyve played bad teams close. Im going to go with Louisville because they're home.

Dayton seems to have cooled off of late. ODU is home and has been tested much more also

my first road team here. VCU barely lost to Tennessee and South Florida on the road so they're road tested. They also have beatten Wake and UCLA.

Gonzaga has a few close losses to good teams but that last one against washington state was not close and is the reason i was pushed away from taking them here. The Irish are coming off of their first loss and will be focused at home.

I think Tennessee's style is going to be why they knock off Pitt on the road. Biggest game of the week.

Indiana's only real game was a loss to BC. Kentucky is young and unpredictable but I say they get it done here. Classic matchup though...

I dont claim to be a Wisconsin fan but they're one of my favorite teams. So consistent, you know what to expect from them no matter who leaves. Should be a good game but I have to take the badgers.

This pick ended up being easier than I expected when I put this game on here. Washington has the losses to two good teams in close games but they have more than taken care of business agasint everyone else.

Finish off Saturday with a ranked team going down. BYU hasnt really played anyone and the two best teams they played (St. Marys and South Florida ) they barely escaped against.

Taking tech to win here to end their 3-game losing streak. This team is nowhere near what we're used to Tech being but Penn State never got over that hump they were supposed to a couple of years ago.

Boston College confuses me right now. Going to stick with the team Im comfortable with in Maryland...

Clemson is 0-2 on the road and Im pretty sure FSU is better than ODU and my gamecocks.

need Pitt to take care of business here... i want UConn out with a passion

WV missed their chance already...

Great D vs. Great O... I'll go with the D. Never trust June Jones though...

Whatever, Ducks take care of business.

Hoping my team does all college football fans a favor and wipes the smile off of Cam Newtons face...

Id have researched this but honestly whatever. Huskies it is.

been pulling for Tech since the boise loss.

PLEEEEEEEEEAAAASE WIN USF!

Oklahoma sneaks in the back door.... theyve been coasting all year. Wanted to take Nebraska but somebody said something that threw me off of that lol dont remember what it was.

Why not?
