Week 5 pix by JR -- the Real Expert

Went 21-3 last week, bringing me to 82-16 overall.
That ties me with J. Darin Darst and leaves me three back of the so-called Expert Picks leader Dennis Dodd (85-13).

On to Week 5

THURSDAY
Oklahoma State over Texas A&M

SATURDAY
No. 1 Alabama 28, No. 7 Florida 20
No. 2 Ohio State over Illinois
No. 3 Boise State over – more like quadruple over – New Mexico State
No. 4 Oregon 33, No. 9 Stanford 30 (Possible Game of the Year)
No. 5 TCU over Colorado State

No. 8 Oklahoma 38, No. 21 Texas 28 (Over of 45 looks nice)
No. 10 Auburn over La.-Monroe
No. 24 Michigan State 31, over No. 11 Wisconsin 30 (Like the over of 52)
No. 12 LSU over Tennessee
No. 16 Miami over Clemson (Will ‘Canes burn me again?)

No. 17 Iowa 29, No. 22 Penn State 18
No. 18 USC over Washington
No. 19 Michigan over Indiana (Expect a lot of points. I love the over of 65.5)
No. 23 N.C. State over Virginia Tech (Take the 4 points)
No. 25 Nevada over UNLV

Boston College over Notre Dame (Take the 3 points)
Air Force over Navy

WEEK 4 RECAP (21-3)
Lost on Pitt (boy, do they stink), Texas (I just can’t read UCLA) & Ga. Tech (N.C. State looked pretty good).

Week 1 pix by JR -- the Real Expert

Since I, the defending champion and winner 3 of the last 5 years, has been kicked out of the college football Expert Picks groups, I’ll just make my picks here.

They say I wasn’t really kicked out. They claimed I’m too busy with my current position of Producer/Editor of everything MLB & Tennis on this great site of ours, but I know.

I know they were sick of losing to me.

I know I’m not the best expert in the country. Picking without the spread is pretty darn silly and should be pretty darn easy, but I still tend to lose my share of games. However, I lose less than 3 of the so-called experts that are returning. I’m not afraid of them. They’re obviously afraid of me. They’re probably a bunch of St. Louis Cardinal fans.  Let me see how I can do against the recently-hired bloggers. Bring it on guys. Don’t embarrass yourselves.

Anyway, here’s my picks for Week 1.

THURSDAY

No. 2 OSU over Marshall (but take the points. 28? Too much)

No. 13 Miami over FAMU (this game shouldn’t count in the standings. Really?)

Utah over No. 15 Pitt (I love home teams)

No. 14 USC over Hawaii (Don’t love home teams that much)

SATURDAY

No. 1 ‘Bama over San Jose State

No. 4 Florida over Miami of Ohio

No. 5 Texas over Rice

No. 6 TCU 28, over No. 24 Oregon State 17 (Under & a small hunch on taking the points)

No. 7 Oklahoma over Utah State

No. 8 Nebraska over Western Kentucky

No. 9 Iowa over Eastern Illinois (another JOKE of an opponent)

No. 11 Oregon over New Mexico

No. 12 Wisconsin over UNLV

No. 16 Ga. Tech over SC State (come on! – this is why certain teams don’t belong in BCS bowl consideration at the end of the year)

No. 17 Arkansas over Tennessee Tech (they can’t put lines on games like these)

No. 21 LSU 20, over No. 18 UNC 16 (Excluding Va. Tech, ACC is overrated)

No. 19 Penn State over Youngstown State (The Subdivision Penguins have lost their last 3 openers by a combined score of 119-9. Shame on you, JoePa)

No. 20 FSU over Samford (& Son. Seriously?)

No. 22 Auburn over Arkansas State (Take the points)

No. 23 Georgia over La.-Lafayette. (I dare the ‘Dawgs to travel to Bon Temps)

No. 25 WVU over Coastal Carolina (D-I schools should be punished for such scheduling)

UConn over Michigan

KSU over UCLA

Fresno over Cincy

MONDAY

No. 10 Va. Tech 26, Boise State 24 (Of course, you can expect a VT special teams TD)
