College Football Picks Week 14

December 2, 2015
By

Ladies and Gentlemen –

I am glad to see that you all survived Thanksgiving and your annoying cousin visiting for the holidays that feels under some obligation to brag about how damn successful he is, how much “stuff” he has and how smart his damn kids are and how wonderful “the” spouse is.

Well, I hope you survived it.

But “IF” you are somehow readying this week’s update in the county jail, after winging your cousin with a turkey leg, then I hope you get released before Christmas on good behavior.

Weekend Rewind…..

The last full week of the regular college football season wasn’t too bad for Your Favorite College Football Prognosticator.

Considering of course that anything can and will happen during “Rivalry” week, we finished last week at 49 and 10 or 83%.

That leaves The CFB Wizard at a rather impressive 705 and 145 or 83% for the final regular week.

We still have some Championships to decide this week, with “Who Goes and Who Stays Home” at stake.

So let’s get right to it, shall we?

A BRIEF COMMENTARY

So what is it that you college football fans “REALLY” want?

You want it ALL right now?

Right!

You deserve it TOO!

Right!

Of course I am right!

So let’s see, where should the “bar” be set for your next coach?

Because the one you have now is a total LOSER, with a capital “L”!

Averaging almost ten wins a season, considering of course there are only twelve games in a season, isn’t good enough is it?

HELL NO IT ISN’T!

Right!

Of course I am right!

So let’s think about this for a minute

Coach (fill in the name) can only lose one game during the course of a season, providing of course it’s not to a rival or was “upset” in any way by some team that isn’t of our caliber.

But preferably we desire (demand actually) that Coach (fill in the name) vanquish every foe, complete the season undefeated and win the Conference and National Championship by at least four touchdowns.

And certainly we must mention “upsets” because that simply can’t happen!

I don’t know what you have heard Coach (fill in the name)

But “Upsets” don’t happen in life and it won’t ever happen on the football field here.

Not to “US” anyway!

Right!

Of course I am right!

Sorry, a clarification was necessary on the above “issue” so some pesky coach doesn’t think that an “upset” will fly around here, because it won’t. Not ever mister, do you hear me!

Am I right?

Of course I am right!

Coach (fill in the name) will meet boosters, various alumni clubs year round, while recruiting constantly and preparing future plays and design exhaustive schemes to thwart those schools that our many fans who never attended our hallowed halls would approve of.

Coach (fill in the name) while preparing for yet another National Championship season, will appear on every radio, television (local and national) year round, to include Christmas and Easter to give updates on the preparation and preparedness of said football team.

Also Coach (fill in the name) has to go to children’s hospitals, answer fan mail, be involved in community projects, while keeping 110 student athletes academically eligible and out of trouble.

Because we don’t want any (as in none) bad publicity!

Our reputation is the Best Ever!

Let’s not forget that Coach (fill in the name) must have a beautiful, articulate wife and well behaved clean cut squared away children, be involved in numerous charities and always smile for the camera while raising her index finger to signify that we are “Number One!”

But it’s not all work!

Coach (fill in the name) will be allowed to see his wife and or children for fifteen minutes every other Tuesday evening at ten o’clock pm, unless it’s during the season, which is an obvious “no-no”.

And let’s not forget Coach (fill in the name), you cannot lose more than one game per year!

Don’t forget it!

After all, we wouldn’t want “our” powerhouse of a college to fall into mediocrity like Nebraska did a few years ago with old Coach Frank “What’s His Name” Solich

Can you imagine only averaging winning ten games a season, while winning two conference titles, taking the team to a national championship game, producing a Heisman trophy winner, coach of the year honors (Blah-Blah-Blah) in just six years!

Good thing they got rid of that LOSER!

Right?
