FOOTBALL IS FINALLY BACK! The long, godforsaken offseason is finally over. For those of you who have played before: welcome back. To new followers or those who haven’t joined in: welcome, come play along, wont you? Each week I will pick some college football games, usually 5, with ND’s always included because I’m a homer, and then the 4 (or more if a super stacked slate) games I find to be the best, most interesting lines, or easiest for jokes. Games will be picked against the spread. I will post the picks on Thursday, which yes, opens up to line movement. For this little game, just pick against the line I post. The regular season is just for pride and bragging. There will be a Bowl contest like the last few years with GLORIOUS REAL LIFE PRIZES on the line. I was, in a word, horrendous last year, finishing with a 45% clip. A monkey with a coin probably could’ve beat me. My good friend Kristin beat the holy hell out of everyone, taking the regular season and the bowl contest by a healthy margin, finishing at a very impressive 57% winning clip. Anyway, the game is simple, hit the jump for this week’s picks and please leave yours in the comments. COLLEGE FOOTBALL BACK WOOOOOOOOOOOOO
I have no idea. This year is super weird. If I had to pick 4 for the playoffs I’d go FSU, Sparty, UCLA, and either Georgia or LSU, haven’t made up my mind yet. It should be Oregon’s year but I’m too pro Myles Jack to pick against UCLA. Honestly tho, this year is gonna be super weird. Here it is in video form:
So typically I’ll run through the schedule before the season and predict wins and losses. The problem with this year is four players, 3 starters and 2 of the top 5 on the team are out for an indefinite time. So honestly, I have no goddamn clue what to expect this year. At this point, all I feel comfortable penciling in is a W vs Rice and an L against FSU. Maybe we get everyone back next week and I feel a lot better and 10 wins is within reason. Or maybe they are out for the year and we are down around 6 wins. College football you are a fickle mistress, but damn did I miss you.
Why…why my glorious goal scoring Pokemon? Why must you crush me? The only possible tiny upside here is Jose was watching and realizes oh wait, this dude fucking owns and Torres sucks and doesn’t let you go like he’s totally going to do. Stupid soccer.
Bless you Tim Howard. That was a hell of an effort.
So E3 starts tomorrow which always leads to all sorts of news and fun and shitty posts from me. What’s weird is a ton of the game that made noise at last year’s E3 (like The Division, Sunset Overdrive, and The Order) have recently gotten delayed back to 2015, so we know we’ll get some info on them. We also can expect the annual series to show up with Battlefield:Hardline info, Call of Duty 2k14, an Assassin’s Creed or 2, etc. So what else should we expect?
