Well hello again kids, it’s that time again. Thankfully our long national nightmare is coming to an end in a mere two days. Because I’m addicted to both college football and gambling, I’ve posted 5 picks the last few years on this here blog. Everyone knows it’s more fun when lots of people play along, so I invite you all to make your picks in either the replies or comments depending on if you too have a tumblr. Last year’s winner was my good friend Donnie B. who pulled an impressive 54% (37-28-3) record last year. I ended up just under 50 with a 49% (37-35-3) falling below the halfway mark the last week of the season. For those curious, the records of everyone can be found here. Not this year. Come past the jump to play along.
Okie State did as well as they could tonight. I mean, they beat the sam fuck out of OU. But odds, are? we still get stuck with Alabama-LSU part deux. This infuriates me for 2 reasons. The 1st: I don’t wanna watch them play again. It’s completely foolish to have a team play a team they’ve already lost to for the title. If Bama wins, they should have to play a rubber match. The 2nd part, which may anger me more: Is Alabama totally deserves to be #2. OSU did all they could, but they lost to Iowa State. ISU is fucking miserable. They’re a 6-6 team that should’ve been murdered. But on a Friday night, they pulled off a huge, double OT upset over Okie St. Bama’s only loss this year was to LSU, in overtime. How can you argue w/ a 3 point loss in OT to the #1 team in the land?? That’s the worst part. If only we could have Oklahoma State play Bama for a shot at LSU. Fucking BCS. It’s a great system when there’s a clear 1-2. You could argue you have that this year. But the thought of a team playing a team they already beat for a nat’l title blows my mind. Sports are stupid. I may be dumber. I’d love to hear yall’s thoughts on this. I just think a rematch is fundamentally retarded.
This is the last week of the year kids. We’ve got 4 conference title games and one de facto title game. An important song before we get to work. Since the Pac 12 game is tomorrow we won’t be picking it, but let’s be serious. Oregon -ALL THE POINTS. Before we get to the picks, this goes out to all you lovely people who have been joining me on this journey throughout the year:
Well after an insane set of games last week, we come to “rivalry week” with all eyes on the SEC as they sit 1-2-3 in the BCS and a huge game between LSU and Arkansas on Friday. That game being Friday, and the last Lone Star Showdown being Thursday, forced an early set of picks. This could lead to lines that will change by Saturday, but as always, pick against the lines as listed here so we are all on the same page. Let’s do the damn thing, Thanksgiving flavored. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, and gluttony, we will have more than five games. Lots of classic rivalry games featuring ranked teams, combined with possibility of people missing early games makes sense.
There are several interesting games this week, the problem is they are all late kickoffs and only one game is really going to attract attention. That’s right, Oregon @ Washington is gonna be a barnburner. Oh, not that one? I’m sorry, that was a terrible joke and I’m ashamed. Luckily my punishment is already sentenced because I have to go to a wedding this Saturday. If you schedule a wedding in the fall, you are a dick. Don’t be those people. Onto the picks.
THUNDERDOOOOOOOOOOMEEEEEEEEEE! 2 will enter, 1 will leave. This week has been painfully long for me. I haven’t been this hyped up for a game in awhile. I want murder. Let’s pick some games!
This week has some fantastic matchups once again. the 7o’clock spot is insanely packed, good thing I’ve got 2 working tvs now! < 3 u living in the future. After last week I slipped back below 50% because I’m a failure. Let’s rectify that weak noise, shall we? Play along post-jump:
Well, I finally got myself back to .500. Hopefully I can keep it that way. Wouldn’t you like to join as well? Solid slate this week, let’s do the damn thing.
Well, my week 1 picks were not awesome. then again, none of yall exactly killed it (all the results can be seen by this beautiful hyperlink right hyah). Let’s not suck this week shall we? Game on!
