#22 Penn State at #17 Iowa Iowa: 24-3

#9 Stanford at #4 Oregon Oregon: 52-31

My Picks: 8-4

Alright I said I wanted a 3-9 and after this first game it could very easily be me lol. Im taking ECU. This will be an interesting game. I wasnt impressed with the way the Rutgers game was won by NC . . . sorry Heels. Im thinking if I had seen the Va Tech game I wouldnt have taken ECU . . .

Wake's D is Turrible. No way tech loses. Riiiight??? (now see my going against what i believe in acc games was working for me. lets see how actually picking because of what should happen goes for me) As expected this game was closer than one would have thought (one being me)

woooooow. lol. Neither team has done anything fantastic this year. I hate this game lol. Aggh. Cinci has looked like garbaje (spanish) all season and they just hung with OKlahoma, but then UCLA also had looked like gargaje (still spanish) and then BEAT Texas. i say Texas got the wakeup call they needed and do so . . . Yeah so i probably should have looked into this game more than I did. Garrett Gilbert no es good . . . I also think all the games I missed were road teams I picked to win. hmmm

Man, for one of these teams this game is going to be awesome! for the other another heart break. both teams have battled with teams that were "better" than them on paper and come up short twice. I watched the Oregon-AZ State game though and I liked what I saw in the Sun Devils' offense. QB wont throw 6 picks lol Well it was close. probably entertaining. Home team won by 3. this game is in AZ and AZ state wins.

Think Wildcatfan summed it up last week when he picked auburn. the kissing your sister thing. Clemson's D has been surprisingly weak though . . . Miami's ridiculously strong. Comes down to how excitable Jacorry Harris gets though. they go as far as he lets them . . . 2+ picks and they lose. Ugliest game ever. 7 turnovers total i believe. Jacorry Harris threw his 2 picks but Clemson turned the ball over 5 times. Kinda hard to win doing that.

so Florida woke up offensively last week huh? and Bama got scored on huh? based on last week's game I want to take Florida. Based on body of work, knowing Saban is a great coach, and wanting Bama to be #1 next week. Im taking Bama . . . So yeah. Bama handled Florida. SC-Florida will be a 3:30 game. I can live with that. leave home around noon or so. Perhaps grab some free beverages/food from some tailgates i know Ill have "friends" (more like people I know) at. Get home in time for the 8 o clock games (maybe)

Wisconsin is just that team that's always under the radar. Basketball and football. Theyre always good but dont get much recognition for it. Michigan state wins at home. Wish i knew more about these teams.

Hurts me to do this. I like NC State . . . Tech has allowed 3 points in the last 6 quarters of football though. I think the ship has been righted over there. A big win on the road against the team everyone (including myself) loves in the ACC will go a long way in putting them back on track to win the ACC.  NC State started out hot but V tech got it going and didnt look back. I think they're officially back.

Who knows what Kansas is capable of. Baylor is at home and playing the same way every week . . . I like Griffin anyway. Yeah i dont think anybody saw that result coming. My goodness . . .

Two top ten run games going at it here. Defenses both top 30 but I'll say that's because they both control the ball by running. I like Air Force having not gone across the country and having played better competition thus far. Best punt block ever in this game. I love the passion these armed forces teams play with when they meet. everything left on the field. Air Force ends a 7 year slump and should take care of Army to win the cup.

Sorry Lions. Iowa's D is always studly. They're home and their offense is better. BOOM. Yeah Iowa didnt let me down . . .

Great QB matchup here. Oregon's offense is more well rounded. Both defenses ar tough. Game is in Eugene. Just like the NC State game I like Stanford but I have to take Oregon here. Watching the hell out of this game though. I guess it kinda compares to the NC State game. Looked like stanford was running away with it early. Then Oregon responds and shows who the better team is.

#5 Oregon at Arizona State (2-1) Oregon 42-31

My Picks: 9-3

Russell Wilson is balling right now. and I hate ACC games so if im worried about G tech they're probably going to lose. Cool Yeah, Russell Wilson is good . . .

Gonna have to take Tech. It appears they'v gotten their offense together. dont think BC's D is going to be able to stop them. Smile Didnt think BC had anything. I watched some of this game. ugly

Not sure I trust the Northwestern D against a team that scored 52 last week but I'll take them anyway. Wink Gonna assume this game was closer than some of you expected . . .

Kansas State's defense is (charles barkley voice) "Turrible" upset? I mean you know I've got to pick at least one right? lol Yell Damnit! TD with 24 seconds to take the lead??? Hurt me watching this one . . .

I want this to be a good game. Penn state only put up 24 on Kent state but they shut them out also. Penn state d will bail out the O even if they do allow some point. Sorry Bill Cosby, cant pick them (they win this though and they'll be ranked or close to it) Undecided Well, it was a good game. all i wanted . . .

I liked how close the Georgia-Arkansas game was. I also liked how Georgia was able to score on Arkansas. Made me feel really confident in my gamecock's chances against them. Im going to go safe here and take Bama but this game will go a long way in telling me about both of these teams . . . Undecided damn! so close to an upset. oh well I DID pick bama

It's cute you thought I was done after one upset. Get em Wyndham!!! No really though. the D gets it done here. Florida has not taken care of business in my eyes. Kentucky can score and they can stop Florida from scoring. Little hesitation with this pick Sealed guess Florida got their sht together . . .

yeah yeah nobody expected me to pick Auburn. Our starting D hasnt allowed a touchdown yet. Clemson's D has been allowing scores to cupcakes so I dont think Auburn's O can put more than 17 on us. That said we need Lattimore to travel. We control the ball we win. Yell We abandoned the run, we didnt adjust our D to defend a running QB, We should have gotten blown out. Get back to the ground game. and play man D. our zone was only working in the past because we were up in every game . . .

Oregon State didnt really impress me in the TCU game. Then they had the close game wth Louisville (yes I know Kentucky did too) Not sure what Boise is about either having seen what Va Tech has done lately but I did like what I saw from Boise. Smile Whatever. boise chugs along . . .

I think LSU is overrated but I always underestimate them. I hate this game. and i hate thinking about it. next game . . . Smile W

toughest choice of these last few. (dont remember the previous ones I did earlier. as in pre-SC) I reaaaaaally want to take Cal but after how horribly that D played last week on the road Im not sure I can . . . Smile I kinda thought thered be more scoring but a good game nonetheless az winning it at the end .  . .

Alright I liked the way AZ state played Wisconsin last week that's why this game is on here but Oregon's O and D are both ranked first in the country. dont know why i thought someone would pick against them lol. maybe i didnt. I need someone to at least make oregon think though. damn! Smile Well Oregon finally had to think. Stanford is smiling somewhere.

#9 Iowa at #24 Arizona Arizona: 34-27

My Picks: 8-4

Man, I did NOT play around picking the games this week huh? lol This is a tough one for me. I always want to pick the upsets. This game has the #1 defense in the land (so far) vs. the #1 offense in the land (so far). Now Cal didnt exactly play any offensive juggernauts, and Nevada didnt play any defensive ones so it gets tricky. Nevada is home- thats one up for them. Aggh, the fact that Im writing this much means Im having a hard time picking. question is can Colin Kaepernick go all Vince Young on Cal, at home? I say yes. I cant wait for this game. We'll know a lot more about both of them afterward. Didnt see a Nevada blowout coming. Nevada better than I thought or Cal worse than I thought?

So am I gonna start off with two losses? lol I sure hope not. I really want to pull for the Heels. I mean, gtech lost to Kansas, who loss to NDState lol. NC also gets their starting RB back, they're still missing 3 safeties but the last time I checked G tech didnt exactly throw the ball. Alright here's my loss. got the other right obviously. 2 close losses for this depleted UNC team. Imagine if they were full strength .  ..

gotta take WV here. I dont trust maryland's offense at all. Guess this was a free win for everybody

Upset #3. I think Im commiting pick em suicide (pickecide?) East Carolina's offense is ridiculous. VT's looks bad . . . choosing a lot of games based on offense so far. Well it started off like ECU was gonna run them out of the stadium but apparently Va Tech woke up at some point.

another tough one for me. I know Air Force can score and that OK's D cant stop them much, I also know that Oklahoma can score, and Air Force's D... you get the point. Aggh. Taking Oklahoma ONLY because they're home. Now watch Air force win . . . Close final here. Im thinking OK didnt expected to be pushed by Utah state and air force when they looked at their schedule.

Alright so in my eyes Auburn is overrated and Clemson Im still not sure about. In the grand scheme of things at the end of the year a Clemson "upset" wont really be one. Wait, why am I thinking??? Auburn it is. Beat Clemsux! lol (alright really though, this is a toss-up for me) Watched the game with Clemson fans. Never seen emotions change so quickly in a room lol. My friend left before the second kick went up. Just knew it was going to be a miss. lol

Eeeeeeeeeeeverybody's on Notre Dame. Why? should be a good game. im taking state mostly to be contrarian. Their run game is 11th in the country though. a nice plus OT Michigan state win? I'll take it.

Cant take Georgia after last week. I'll take Arkansas. Not sure Georgia can score with them. After this game Im a little bit more confident in my gamecocks' chances against this team.

I think BYU is the better team. buuuuut the traveling across the country thing doesnt work often. gotta go with the Noles here. Though I hear they're having trouble with ticket sales. ouch . . . hmmm, perhaps BYU is worse than I thought

Texas' offense hasnt been great the first two games. Im used to them posting 50s against cupcakes. Tech's D is garbage though. I think Tech can win. I didnt pick them, and I think this is going to be one of those upset weekends (and Im just picking the wrong ones) so a Texas Tech win wouldnt surprise me. Tech gave them 7 free points but came back to tie it at 14. Texas is def. not as good as  we're used to.

Watching this Cinci game now. Cinci not looking so hot. Fresno beat them but didnt BEAT them so I think Im safe going with a Utah State team with a great running back. At home. Game was close for a while then Fresno pulled away in the 4th. What do you know. Fresno is good again

Iowa D vs. Arizona offense. this is another upset I think could easily happen but am not picking therefore it likely will. Im not impressed with what Foles has done thus far though. Think he'd need to have a big game for them to take this one. It was hard watching Iowa come all the way back but miss the EP to take the lead and then let Arizona drive right back down the field for the win.

My Picks: 8-4

Anybody shocked that I'm picking my team? No? alright. Well I look at it like this. We've gone to the wire with them the past two years only to lose it at the end. We have a veteran quarterback to their inexperienced one and then AJ Green went and decided to sell his jersey. What an idiot. While we do now have an offense, i say the defense forces some turnovers which will be the difference in the game. Cool Put a hat on that smiley and it was me at the game lol. Marcus Lattimore is fun to watch. Feels good having a running game . . . Garcia scared me with the fumble but it didnt kill us. cupcake next week so I can relax a little.

Everybody is going to pick G tech more than likely but i put this game on here because there's no way Kansas is going to be that bad again. 3 points against who was it ND state? lol. idk. I like the bounceback potential here. GTech will probably dominate though. Wink Did I get it wrong? yes. Did I say I liked the bounceback potential? yes. I put some games on here that a lot probably didnt think twice about. needed one to come out for me. this one did lol.

Utah State is one of those sleeper type teams and all but uh . . . i dont think anybody was impressed with what Oklahoma did last week. Florida State meanwhile rolled in the way a big boy is supposed to so I like their chances of going in and beating an Oklahoma team that lost a lot more than Sam Bradford last year. Undecided So I guess the Oklahoma from last week was a fluke? They kinda handled Florida State here . . .

I really didnt watch any of the UCLA- KState game last week and i should have. I think last year I watched at least 4 possesions of every game that wasnt on while I was at or watching the SC game. Im sure UCLA is at least halfway decent but I know Stanford is. Def. gonna watch this one and wish luck to my boy Luck lolSmile Hmmm, blowout lol.

Seeing as how I took Connecticut against Michigan and Michigan handled them. meanwhile Notre Dame didnt exactly own Purdue (shocked at all the love for them thus far) I'm going to take Michigan. One of the better games on the slate this week. Smile Well that paid off for me. I guess the Notre Dame love wasnt unwarranted though. close game.

Besided the SC-Georgia game of course, this game is the one im the most excited for. Both teams scored 45 last week (and probably could have scored more. Ohio State is home but I really dont care. Gonna call my first real upset of the year here. Boise gets promoted . . . Miami's defense is just a little nastier, I think that'll be the difference here. Undecided Guess I should have looked at the QB's and not the defenses. Jacorry Harris threw the game away. 4int's??? unacceptable. bad part is they only lost by 12 despite the picks . . . just something to think about.

I hate when I put upset special type games on here but dont know anything about either team. I didnt watch their games. I assumed Tennessee would suck this year but when you hang a 50 spot on someone and shut them out that's hard to ignore. So i put this game on here for it's upset potential but Im not jumping out on that branch with no clue what either team can do . . . Smile So yeah. That's kinda what i expect/was hoping for.

True freshman QB versus #1 defending champs? lol sorry . . . the matchup is fun to look at with the two teams but Im not betting against saban here . . . maybe later down the road Money mouth (gonna put my money where my mouth is) Smile So yeah. bama took care of business.

Yes. I was hurting for games. the first couple of weeks are always the hardest to pick. need at least two weeks to know what a team is about. aaaaand of course there arent a ton of big boys looking to battle other big boys out there. so that combined with the fact that Im well aware of the proliferation of this Idaho offense are why this game got on here. You know what (didnt pick yet) Im taking Idaho. F it. lol Enderle going home. Im confused as to how Nebraska is #8 anyway. i dont think the Vandals can stop the huskers from running. but if Idaho can get on top, and scare the huskers, that'll throw the huskers off and thats when mistakes happen. I say this game is closer than most are expecting. may be an idaho loss but i expect at least a battle from them . . . Undecided Im not sure how the game went late. guess Idaho put some points on the board later in the game to save face for me a little. This one didnt pay off for me last time i pick an upset just to pick an upset. I kinda use the blog as an upset watch when there arent a lot of good games. next week looks better though.

I dont know if I'll ever pick colorado. I just dont know what to make of them... ever. How about this Pac-12 showdown though huh? lol Surprised Yeah, welcome to the Pac 10 colorado. lol

Air Force is one of my favorite underdogs as all of you know. BYU is down. Air Force's offense is not. They're home. I say they finally jump on the cougs . . . Wink Told ya they'd jump on em . Hey, and BYU lost by more than Idaho so there lol.

this game was originally cut but i see i made the right decision in bringing it back. Looks like it's the most split game this week as far as the picks are going. Im taking the wolfpack though. UCF played South dakota in their warm up. probably not a beneficial matchup. should have talked to 24k about this one . . . Smile I have nothing to say about this game. A win though. On a side note. WTF Va tech???

*Monday*

#3 Boise State at #10 Virginia Tech Boise State: 33-30

My Picks: 11-1

  I was going to go with Pitt until I realized they have a new QB. both have solid running games, Utah wasnt exactly stellar at the QB position last year but should be better this year. It also helps that they're at home. I expect Pitt to try to be safe and stay on the ground but if they get behind and the kid has to throw it wont be a good thing . . . Tongue out An OT thriller. awesome way to start the year

  Quite frankly both defenses are terrible and I dont expect that to change much. Gabbert though is more experienced now whereas Illinois will be replacing Juice williams (finally) so again, Im gonna pick against the unknown. Cool aaaand it worked out. Illinois had me nervous at the half up 10 but Mizzou came through.

Colorado state was one of my favorite teams to put in the pick em last year looking for an upset that eventually happened lol. Cant pick them here though. while colorado doesnt quite have the offense, I think they'll find a way to get it done another way. I do expect a close game though Smile I'll assume noone is shocked by this. Colorado did what the big boy is supposed to.

last year i was looking for reasons to pick against Notre Dame, and I found them in most cases. Gonna do the opposite this year lol. They did lose a lot but with Kelley coming in the offense should rebound well enough. I say Notre dame comes out slow in the first half but really gets it going in the second and pull out a win. Smile they didnt necessarily come out slow but they win in a grinder.

Gonna take the huskies. The only thing I know about this game is that Connecticut has a great running back. Michigan is unsure at QB and their D was terrible the last time I checked. Undecided My lack of knowledge bit me here . . .

Im going to take Kentucky in this one. Defense getting it done. Tongue out My boy T Wyndham was all over the backfield! lol proud of him...

Gonna take my first new quarterback. these teams are pretty evenly matched so Im taking the home field advantage for the win. Money mouth Ha, worked out for me. Home field was probably the difference.

I think people have been blinded by Jake Locker . . . he doesnt play defense. Smile Got the W but Washington did have a shot at the win. I expected at least a two score BYU victory. We'll see where both of these teams go from here . . .

Well, as of this pick noone has taken the Beavers. I knew this but as i was going through i didnt realize which game i was on until i had decided on the horned frogs. oh well. TCU it is. Undecided Smile Well I got the win but so did everybody else lol. A little closer than im guessing most thought huh?

* (before suspensions)   Alright this was the first game I looked at when picking the games and just knew who i was picking. no research at all for this one. Just based on what i remember from the past few years LSU has been consistently bad on O and decent on D while NC has been improving on O and good on D. UNC's D will likely force turnovers to decide this one

So I picked UNC originally but due to the suspensions of 3/4 of their D line, and 2 of their top corners. I, unfortunately, have to back out from that pick now . . . If UNC wins I'll be glad thoughUndecided It's a win but UNC was a pass interference call away from probably winning the game. (yes it was interference) but the TE still could have caught it but didnt. I expect UNC to either be in the 25 still or at least be just on the outside

New QB for ECU, New coordinators for Tulsa. dont know what to expect from tulsa. started hot last year. then fell apart. Surprised Wooooooooow!!! What a game, what a fourth quarter, what a finish! That was fun from start to finish (side note: the WR Harris had a huge second half and got me a win in my college fantasy league. 121 yards 2 tds. won by 1 point lol)

I like both teams. I just think itd be very easy for the hokie players to play to Moore and not the broncos as a whole. should be a good game though Cool Another great game. Boise came out strong, Vtech came back and took the lead. but Boise stayed poised. and this completes my best week ever (i believe) Thats how you start people!!!

College Bball Pick 'em: Round 2 and Bowl Pick em

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.

Good Luck!

My Basketball Picks: 5-7

Even as a heel fan I recognize that this isnt any other duke team, athleticism is not a problem for them

not picking against my boy Dino, Miami beat my gamecocks, but I feel we'd have gotten them if Archie didnt get hurt. which I dont think I could say about a wake team

I dont know anything about ND, but that means they arent doing anything

Florida is inconsistent, I hate inconsistent teams

give me calhoun and the boys

Im sure Ole Miss is good since they're healthy this year. but I'll take Vernardo and co. in an in-state rivalry game

Bo Ryan is on of my favorite coaches, he just keeps outcoaching them

Lets do it tubby!

no upset yet. UNLV should push them though

go Tech! havent seen the cowboys this season

havent seen VT this season yet either plus I know roy lit into his boys after the C of C loss that I cant seem to hear the end of around here . . .

Tennessee just got rid of one of their top players and 3 others are suspended, Pearl is not a magician . . .

My Basketball Picks: 9-3

I'm taking the Gaels in today's game, they've both been tested but St. Mary's has fared better in those tests, defeating the ducks and losing by just 2 to the commodores. Pacific was meanwhile handled by Cal. They've also both played San Jose State, St. Marys won, Pacific lost, neither game was a blowout though so this should be a 10 point or lower St. Mary's win

15, 10. Tomato, Tomoto lol

Im not picking against my heels right now, Roy will find a way

He didnt

  Duke has been sick this year. I'm actually afraid of them. I guess they start hot every year but this year I think they may be a real contender

That wasnt even close

When is the Butler coach going to get a big-time job? the man gets it done. This is a solid well-rounded team. They wont lose at home

controversial finish, I agree with the ruling though

I think I'm going to take the Aztecs. this was a tough team last year and they should have gotten tougher. Meanwhile State is dealing with the loss of Harden and should have trouble in what should be a tough game.

3 point loss, almost called another one

somebody said something about not being a good coach just because your daddy was and used Knight as an example . . . looks like he's getting it done to me . . .

ah, I wanted to take wichita . . .

Sorry Bama, I havent seen K state play yet this year but I think they can come down and get it done. two athletic teams, should get physical, fouls may become a factor

Wildcats dont disappoint

I was at the game wednesday when richmond gave my boys a hard time in the first half . . . they're capable of the upset

and they got it, funny thing. They led my gamecocks 32-24 at the half in the game we won, and they trailed 24-32 and then came back to win in this one

I know nothing about either of these teams and did not do research for these picks to see what would happen. Im taking northwestern simply for the fact that they're at home

Northwestern got the W, alright

Washington is guard heavy but should be much deeper than portland and therefore get it done

Wow, Portland didnt get off the bus lol

I'm not picking against my boy Dino Gaudio. go Wake

Wake got em, NC state hasnt done much in a while

ACC basketball? gotta have a few upsets . . . however minor they may be

and there it is, OT game right?

after doing the research UCF is capable of pulling this off . . . I just dont see it happening

Same with UCF, Wyoming is capable, Fresno is better. but at the same time Wyoming is probably more pumped about this . . . regardless Im not picking against the obviously better team

Southern Miss has a solid offense, I know little to nothing about their opponent
