Week 5 is our last less than amazing week for quite awhile as everyone will be in full conference mode and rivalry games will start to really get going. But damnit there are picks to be made, so let’s get to it.
ND had a bye which lowered my blood pressure significantly, and I took a little trip to Nebraska which I may write about at some point here. But none of yall care about that stuff, do you. To the results!
If you’re the type of person who spends a lot of time — and I would describe “a lot of time” as, like, five minutes a week — getting upset and/or complaining about things that happen or exist on the Internet, allow me to make a simple suggestion that could save you and those around you a number of…
`Another not amazing slate of games, but I’ll take a mediocre to down slate to no football, because no football was a sad way to live. Results are behind this magic word and you all know how this works by now. Game on
Welcome back for week 2 of our little pick game. If you did not see them, the results went up during the lunch hour. If you don’t know what’s going on, here were my hilaribad week 1 picks along with simple things like rules and all that. Follow the jump for week 2 picks (spoiler alert: there will be hatred and profantiy) and don’t forget to make your picks in the comments. Even if you missed week 1, now is as good a time as any to jump in.
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.
