Ladies and Gentlemen –

As promised we return for the Saturday College Football Games…..

Due to limited time this week for “The Picks” I will present the “Southern California Trojan” version of the College Football Picks next week…

However, just for you (My Beloved Fans) I will provide a sample of what is to come in that segment with a “Southern California Trojan” Testimonial…
It should be more than enough to get your funny bone going for the weekend…

Enjoy Your Picks!

 

College Football News and Views

HURRICANE IKE: Now I know how Tina felt….
I am glad your ass is gone….

ARCHIE MANNING: Is it just me, or is Archie starting to look more like Woody Allen each day?

FLORIDA STATE: Even at Bobby’s advanced age he is out on the recruiting trail…
You don’t think so?
Tune in next week, I have a picture to prove it!

ESPN: The only thing you have for us at Halftime on Thursday Night College Football is “Dr. Lou”?

Really? That’s all you all came up with?

Lou spitting and gobbling for 15 minutes?

HOW about SHOWING us the Damn MARCHING BANDS?

TENNESSEE: This past week Phat Phil and his “personal” Attorney Jeff Hagood filed a motion to prevent Coach Phil Fulmer from having to provide a depostion in a lawsuit involving a former Alabama Booster.

This isn’t the “Same” Coach Phil Fulmer that stated in an article this past summer (printed in the Knoxville News-Sentinel) that self-proclaimed he was a “man of Principle and Integrity”…

This couldn’t be the “Same” Coach Fulmer that stated on a radio sports talk show “I didn’t have anything to do with the investigation into  Alabama…”
Then Proceded to conduct his own investigation with “Thunder Lips” Thornton and became the NCAA “Secret Witness”?

EDITORS NOTE: The wheels of justice move slowly….but they finally caught his fat ass.

AUBURN: This past week the President of Auburn University had to issue a statement to the student, fans and alumni….
“Be good sports…Don’t Boo your team or the opposing team…Your behavior reflects poorly on the Auburn Family…”

EDITORS NOTE: I NEVER thought I would see the day when the Auburn Fans acted like Tennessee Fans….You should all be ashamed of yourselves….

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA: Seriously, shouldn’t you all be on probation by now?
Just wondering……

MICHIGAN: I know it hurts losing to a crappy Notre Dame Team….
But Look on the bright side….
Coach Rod’s wife STILL looks like a ten Dollar Hooker….

NCAA: SOoooooo just exactly are you with the “BIG” Investigation into Reggie Bush and the Mighty Southern California Trojans..?

STILL Wondering…..

 

EMAIL Questions and Answers

Q: Mike, how do they seperate the “Boys” from the “Men” at The University of Southern California?
Mel – Seattle, Washington
A: With a Crowbar….

Q: Hey Man! I am a Roadie for a Poison cover band called “Poison: Overdose” and I have a question for you! If Bret Michaels was a college football team who would it be and why?
Thanks Dude, you rock!
“Beef” – Kansas City, Missouri
A: I would have to say Georgia Tech…Because they are after all..
 “The Rambling Wreck”…Rock on Dude..

Q: If you could have one wish, would it be for “World Peace” or “Ending World Hunger”?
Flower – Coronado, California
A: Neither….
It would involve a Deaf Mute “Super Model” that owned her own chain of liquor stores…

Q: Mike, our neighbors are Tennessee fans…
They are normal 8 months out of the year…
You can talk with them about almost anything..
Until football season starts!

Then they act stupid! Can you help us please?

Mindy – Biloxi, Mississippi
A: Mindy…these are people that believe “Professional Wrestling” is Real and the Moon landing is a fake….Go figure.

5 Responses to College Football Picks Week 4 (Part II)

    Dear Mr. Wiz,

    I tell you (as they say in Knocksville), reading this column is a great abdominal workout! I laugh so hard!

    In our house you have a 100% record: you have never failed to make us laugh! (wonder about your mental state? Yes. But fail on humor? No!)

    BUT- I do have a question for you or for Hootie or whomever. I have run into a quite a dilemma for me. J (youngest male offspring) is playing inline hockey this Fall. They just got their uniforms. OMG! Sweet Jesus! The jerseys are orange, white and blue. WTH do I do??? The sad part is that the opposing team they play tomorrow wears jerseys that are crimson, steel grey and white. Oh crap. I am so confused.

    Any advice you can give me is welcome. I am going to shine my tiaras and think about this awhile. I mean, our family is so against TN or FL that we don’t even eat orange and blue M&Ms or Skittles at the same time. We “boo” outloud in the car if we see a UT or Gator flag.

    HELP!

    The BamaPrincess
    (I hope you don’t mind, while I am awaiting your reply, I’m gonna go refill my glass of red wine!)

    ROLL TIDE!

    I hope you are correct about MSU at GT! By the way, I visited the campus of Ursinus about 35 years ago. I could’nt tell if they had a field to play on. I did’nt even know they had a team! Anyway, thank you and I will be “tooned in” later today! Enjoy the Great Game! BJ

    Bulldog Jim –

    I am a Believer….Your Beloved Bulldogs will have more than enough Cowbell to dispatch the pesky yellow jackets…

    Bama Princess –

    Sorry for the delayed response…

    This is a slippery slope you are on….

    However…This is an EXCELLENT opportunity to educate your son in the ways of the world…

    For Example:

    “Mommy and Daddy will be screaming your name during the game…However we are unable to put our hands together and clap for your team…It is against our religion…

    You don’t want to make Jesus cry do you son?”

    The children always understand….

    Also, this is a GREAT time (While giving them, what I like to refer to as “The Orange” talk…) the reason the aUbUrn family down the street are all going to hell…

    Hope this helped…

    How did you know the Bronc were going to take down the ducks? I want to know who you know.

  5. MEB on September 26, 2008 at 10:01 pm

    Ojam-

    I just “Knew”….
    The Broncos would beat the Ducks in Oregon.

    But clearly missed a few other games…

    What can I say?

    Thanks for the comment….
