COLLEGE FOOTBALL PICKS WEEK 2

September 3, 2008
By

Ladies and Gentlemen –

Not a bad first week for Your Favorite College Football Prognosticator.
Some of my loyal readers have called it a “nearly perfect” weekend for me.
Close…..

Tennessee Lost and Alabama Won; the only thing that would have made it better would have been a Loss by the U$C Trojans and a win by the Clemson Tigers.
That being said, I finished the week at 53 and 11 or 83%.
Not a bad first week if I say so myself.

There is a lot to talk about and Your Weekly College Football Picks are Out!
So Let’s get to it.

Enjoy Your Picks!

COLLEGE FOOTBALL NEWS and VIEWS

HURRICANES: I am thankful that Gustav didn’t hurt my friends and family along the Gulf Coast and I don’t believe Hanna will do much more than bring some much needed rain to my Family in Carolina.
But if your name is “Tina” and you live in the path of Hurricane Ike….Run Like Hell!

TEXAS A&M: Any of you Aggies want R. C. Slocum’s phone number?
I have it right here, if you need it….

TENNESSEE: Those were some really “nice” Orange Sherbert pants you all were wearing for the game in California…Seriously, they didn’t look Gay at All…totally Heterosexual looking; really.

CLEMSON: Stop reading your press clippings on how “Great” you all are and start playing some damn football.

MISSISSIPPI STATE: See “Clemson” Above…. 

OREGON STATE: A Beaver is NOT Suppose to LOSE to a team with a Tree for a mascot..
It’s against the laws of nature!

HAWAII: Despite being blown out by two Southeastern Conference Teams in a row, there is some good news! Dog the Bounty Hunter is back on the A&E Channel every Wednesday Night.

VIRGINIA TECH: As I stated earlier in the week; I believe Hokie Tight End Ed Wang at 6-6 275 pounds to be the largest Wang ever seen in a Hokie uniform.
And before you start emailing me….
I know
Television adds weight to person…
But that is still a big Wang…

KENTUCKY: You beat Louisville with a quarterback that wasn’t even a quarterback until last week.
Sorry I doubted you BIG BLUE…I won’t make that mistake again.

ESPN: Did anybody see one time Florida Quarterback and current ESPN “commentator” Jesse Palmer last Thursday Night?
Nice “Clip-on” tie…..real classy.

ESPN II: Plenty of “Love” for the Southern California Trojans in all the pre-game chit-chat, but no mention of the NCAA Investigation into Reggie Bush and the Trojans….I wonder why?
Scared?

ESPN III: The “Sports Network” reported on Saturday that Jo Pa had tied Bobby Bowden with 373 wins after the Lions win over Coastal Carolina.
WRONG…..
Jo Pa has ALWAYS been at Penn State…
Through EVERY win and the occassional loss….

On the other Hand, Bobby Bowden coached “against” Gordon Junior College in the Golden Isle Bowl…
You see Bobby hasn’t ALWAYS Coached a Division I College Football Team…
But, it hasn’t stopped him from counting those wins in his total.

Jo Pa is the winningest Coach in Division I College Football – Period.
Glad I cleared that up for everybody.

    Woo Hoo! The first comment of the first week AND Cats clawed the Cardinals to obtain the Governors Cup, formerly and forver to this Big Blue Fan as the Bourbon Bowl. Ahhh…how sweet it is

    Also, commenting on the signs of the Apocalypse. I said a few months ago, when it was first revealed that NKOTB would touring again “the end is near…we don’t have much time”. Now that it is posted here is further proof that we all need to preparing the supplies.

    Yes, I’m trying to get a message to Jamal, the UPS driver who delivered a can of whupass to our door last Saturday night. I need to return it even though it was in full working order between 8:00-11:30 on Saturday night. It tasted funny.

    Hope you and yours are doing well. I prey the Tigers can get up for their game against the Citadel this weekend after the the Alabama blister. Go Ala…, I mean Clemson.

  5. Go Bucks Michigan Sucks! on September 8, 2008 at 8:59 pm

    Ohio State beats OU 25-14, and that only because OU turned it over five times.

    USC leapfrogs everyone to make it to the number 1 slot, just by beating up UVA on the road.

    Yeah, this game going to go well.
