College Bball Pick 'em: Round 4 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.

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

Good Luck!

My Basketball Picks:  9-3

I can't pick against my team...we need this after the clemson lost...we didn't schedule anybody out of conference and the SEC is down haha, we needed this win
 
apparently Arizona doesn't play defense all of their games, just about, have been close each played UNLV, Cal handled them, Arizona was handled by them, yes Arizona beat Gonzaga, but Arizona is on a slide right now, so that's diminished somewhat nice two in a row

I'll take the Cardinal. Stanford is hard for me to read by just looking at the schedule but they are the home team and these two seem to match up well ok...so stanford got owned.....

I believe Chism is out for the Vols, and it's time for Kansas to get a big win Kansas got that big win

NC state lost to Marquette by 2 then only beat Loyola (MD) (the only school to recruit me for Basketball ) by 2.....so Florida it is, can't tell what NC state is going to do and Florida is home Florida took it in a close one

I'm taking the Hoyas, way more battle tested right now and they're the home team two misses so far....in two blowouts

I liked Ohio St. early but they're not playing as well recently...got handled by West Virginia and only beat Iowa by 3...not impressive enough for me Minnesotta got it done!!!

St. has 3 losses to teams that were in the tourney last year or are currently ranked....I'll take them over a team that has lost to Wofford and Stony Brook  another W!

...because they're north carolina nothing else to say....

I'm feeling Michigan in this one...they lost to Wisconsin they need to bounce back strong I'm rolling!

always in these games where I haven't really seen the teams I like to go on feel...I feel the Golden Eagles in this one blowout!

 
I want to pick Kentucky but I think Petino needs this more...and they're at home God I hate Kentucky, lol

My Bowl Picks:



this should be a great game, despite the lack of top 10 rankings for these BCS teams. I say West Virginia and North Carolina are similar in the scores of their games and their overall performance (31-30 head-to-head confirms this thought) VT and Cinci beat UNC and WV (respectively) by 3 points. VT is more likely to underperform so in a toss-up, I can't pick them

SEC D baby, they held Bama and Florida to 30 or less, I expect the same, Baylor held Tech to 35. I think Ole Miss has one of the better offenses in the SEC too.

why not, nobody else is taking them, and they have a great D and can make plays on offense, my pick of SC was a homer pick, I knew after Iowa scored first it was over, lol, but anyway, I think Kentucky gets it done

Utes baby!!! I called a Ute victory before this bowl matchup was ever made. Utah can score they just need to play their game and not try to do too much

Both lost to Pitt, both beat Temple in close ones, UConn seems to have a better defense and Buffalo a better offense. There's no way Turner Gill's boys let a one dimensional team beat them

Texas has too much offense to lose to this Buckeye team. . .they should have been in the championship and would have if they had the SEC title rule but whatever . . .

why not? this could be a shootout if so Tulsa wins, it gets defensive Ball state will get them

the streak of 60 point games ends for Oklahoma, Bradford gets whacked a couple times and Tebow beasts that D...I wanted Florida vs. Texas!!!

My Basketball Picks:  6-6

Canes are coming off of a horrible loss to Clemson (hopefully Clemson doesn't play like that on the 30th ) but otherwise they've been a solid team, St. John's is mediocre at best right now, they'll lose by 15 or more. got one

LSU lost to their only REAL opponent in A&M and are coming off of a 3 point victory over McNeese State. Anything can happen in a game where your opponent (Washington St.) is noted for their D, but again, this is LSU's second real opponent, the D will get them in trouble early, and I don't thin they'll recover. of course I missed this

Louisville is another team that hasn't really played anybody. UAB has and they're very capable of winning this game, but after losing to Minnesota Petino has something to prove in this one. He'll have his team ready. nice win

State is looking good. They've only played two major teams(Miami and Notre Dame), but they played them on the road and won   well Ohio State's streak had to end eventually

Going with the Catamounts in this one. they score more, and were blown out by Pitt but hung with Maryland. GW was blown out by Maryland and lost to Auburn by 12. haha!

Yeah....do I need a reason? uh huuuuh

Evansville is better than I thought, Drake seems like the obvious choice without looking at the schedule but Evansville is not too far behind damnit! I did everything BUT pick Evansville...

consider this game and the UNC game my christmas gift to you all...for those who choose to take them easy

can't get a read on Virginia they've had close games against good teams and bad teams....I can't read em...I'll pick 'em haha!

Houston is a better offensive team..and they're at home....common opponent was Mississippi Valley st. Houston beat them by twice as much they let them take the second half....

Stanford hasn't give me much to work on whereas Tech has and they seem solid... there's a reason Stanford is undefeated yet unranked and of course Stanford blows tech out...

going with the team that nobody picked, Wichita is also better than I thought, they lost to G-town by 8, Mich St. by 8, and Texas Tech by 3...they're on the road but so were the Tech and G-town games alright last time I pick an upset just to be picking an upset

My Bowl Picks:


you can't predict a Maryland game based on talent...so I'll pick them based on the fact that they might play like a good team...after further review I'm going with Nevada... the Terps suck against the run and Nevada's QB has rushed for over 1,000 this year

Neither team has a loss they should be ashamed of which means their coaches get the most out of them every week. Both pretty explosive...Rice slightly more-so, Rice has a more athletic D, neither has great special teams. I've got two pluses for the Owls so them it is...game is also in Texas so...

should be a shootout but I think Oregon will play better D in this game...picking Oregon right now with my gut telling me to go with OK state...oh well, sticking to this one

My Basketball Picks:  4-8

both have recently had close games against bad teams, but the Spartans are 1-2 against major conference opponentswell, it was a close one

I hate Duke as much as the next man but Xavier has a lot of close games....K closes close games. . . didn't see that blowout coming but a correct prediction none the less

not 100% sure of the status of Devendorf but Memphis has trouble with teams that won't let them run as much as they like to, you know, teams that play some defense...I think the Cuse get 'em The D definitely got to them

New Mexico recently destroyed Ole Miss but I think the son of THE Bob Knight will have his team playing some defense. . .you know what, I take that back, they're coming off of losses to Lamar and UTEP. . . another close one

best opponent between these two was Virginia...who the Golden Gophers beat 66-56...I'll go with Louisville since they've blown out most of their horrible opponents...Minnesota has blown most out but not as decisively... I wanted to go with Tubby's boys so bad!

should be a good game but UNLV has lost to both of their big conference opponents, although the Cinci loss was by 2, they were handled by Cal damn you Arizona!!!

this could be a good one too, but Drake has just one blowout as of right now, and although they beat Iowa St, it was close, whereas Iowa owned Iowa St. Drake destroyed Iowa . . .ouch

Gonzaga is killing themselves with their schedule but they get a break before this game to fine-tune...I say they get the Huskies in this one I'm starting to notice a trend . . .

both lost to Oklahoma, Davidson by 4 and Purdue by 5. the Boilers have more playmakers, and I think they have enough athletes to chase Curry around and make him work on the defensive end as well to wear him out. . .ONE MAN CANNOT DO IT ALL FOR AN ENTIRE SEASON..I REFUSE TO BELIEVE IT!!! wow, I got one

this will be LSU's first real game this season and it's their first road game. They've taken care of all of their opponents. they may come out flat here and if they do A&M's crowd will get behind them and carry them to victory wow 2 in a row!!!

I think BYU can take AZ state, their domination of their opponents has been consistent and AZ state has been proven that they can be challenged by a solid mid-major program that last shot should have counted . . .

wow the two programs I hate most in the picks this week (Duke and Clemson.[ see favorite teams]) I look at Clemson's schedule and wonder how they're #1 in the RPI rankings. . .I think the Canes take them and all of a sudden I'm not looking forward to my gamecocks game against clemson...still going to go though

My Bowl Picks: 

TCU's defense is ridiculous, they allowed more than 14 once!!! and that was the 35 they held Oklahoma to...the lowest total Oklahoma put out...by the same token Boise isn't bad there either. they allowed more than 16 twice...to Oregon and Nevada...Nevada confuses me here. I'm taking the Horned Frogs

I'm taking Hawaii. Why not? they can score and thier defense can catch the ball when the opposing QB throws it directly to them. . .Notre Dame struggles with that
