My Picks : 5-7
This will likely be the game I wake up to tomorrow . . . well in about 10 hours. I got no reason to pick Georgia Tech. so Heels it is
ACC back to its old tricks . . .
I wanted to pick an upset, I wanted to pick it bad but then I looked at who USF has played and see that it's . . . nobody! Three cupcakes, by now you know how I feel about untested teams in big games. It's worked out for me thus far, USF gets smacked early. perhaps they recover, perhaps not, regardless the damage will be done
I guess they had something to prove
BC finally got tested last week, and they got exposed. Wake started with two tough ones and then got a tune up game against Elon, they take care of the Eagles here
Flippin fumble on a blown play in OT when you're already in position to tie it . . . worst way to lose
Defense has been TCU's bread and butter, the D looks soft this year and I know Clemson's D is good, throw in Spiller and the fact that they're at home and you get a Clemson W. Should be a close one though
I hate kickers . . .
Everybody is on Jacorry Harris' junk, I want Miami to be successful, I hate that they've not been what they used to be, yeah I hate the giants but I like having them. so when they get beat it's a big deal. I dont know, I just like the Hokies, I rarely pick against them. "Upset" time. Harris makes some mistakes.
I got one right!!! bout damn time
I'm glad Oregon has recoverd from the Blount issue but I love Cal, I've always leaned toward them but this year they've been lights out, Best is at the top of the Heisman chase and Riley has played some great ball at the QB spot. The D isnt bad either, I think this is their year.
HOLY CRAP, Cal got punked. They showed no backbone or manhood in this one, just gave up after they got down
I dont see what everybody has seen from BYU that they like . . . and I know none of you have seen Colorado St. I like to believe that they're getting votes for the top 25 for a reason and I'll be the only one to take them for the upset. Go Rams!
whatever . . .23-42, and i picked the wrong upset
I wanted to pick AZ state here, but once again untested. Georgia only has one cupcake on their schedule and they dont play them for a while.
yay, i got it right! . . . oh, everybody else did too
I dont know what to think of Oregon St. they barely beat UNLV and people dis Zona becaus of their loss to Iowa but Iowa was billed as a solid team coming into the year. I'm talking the Cats
Close one but the cats pulled it out
Penn St. hasnt really played anybody, but they've allowed 7 points or less to each of those nobodies. They're one of the only top teams that has actually played like a top team every game. They keep rolling here.
Started well . . . ended horribly
This should be a heck of a game, two good QB's. Defenses arent awesome . . . tough call . . . really tough, toss up. I'll go with Stanford
Second half looking better than the first
Houston is just way too efficient. The QB is experienced, they've played together for a while, Tech will get stopped a few times and you cant afford that in this game.
Thank you Houston . . . i needed this one bad
