Ladies and Gentlemen –
By now the packages have been unwrapped, the children and your spouse are happy and your Uncle Fern has sobered up enough to carry on a coherent conversation that doesn’t involve disturbing images in National Geographic or politics.
Let me reassure you.
The upcoming therapy bills from this Christmas will not be as bad as you think.
I should know…
But I digress; we have the second part of your college football bowl picks ready for your review, and entertainment. But if you are wondering “why” the bowl picks are out a bit later than was anticipated.
I blame it on the spiked eggnog.
That’s my story and I am sticking to it
Enjoy your bowl games
THE BOWL GAMES PART II
Saturday 26 December
St Petersburg Bowl
Connecticut and Marshall
I am confused as to why they want to play this game in Russia
Seriously, SAINT PETERSBURG?
This makes no sense….
But I do have three words for you
WE ARE MARSHALL 16-10
Hyundai Sun Bowl
Miami and Washington State
You know our economy is bad when the Chinese sponsor a bowl game
Zaxby’s Heart of Dallas Bowl
Washington and Southern Miss
Not that it’s all that important here…
But some of the best people I know are from Southern Mississippi
That’s good enough for me
GOLDEN EAGLES 38-34
New Era Pinstripe Bowl
Indiana and Duke
This game is being played in Brooklyn New York….
It should be called..
“The Car Jacking We Hate The Police – Protest Everything Bowl”
I’m just saying….
SOMEBODY I DON’T LIKE 28-24
Camping World Independence Bowl
Tulsa and Virginia Tech
I liked this game a lot better when it was the “Weed Eater Bowl”
I have no idea where “Camping World” is….
Is it near a KOA Camp Ground?
HOKIES HOKIES HOKIES 28-21
Foster’s Farm Bowl
UCLA and Nebraska
I have don’t know about “Foster’s Farm”
But I have had rather intimate knowledge of “Boone’s Farm”
That Strawberry Hill stuff will wind your damn watch
BRUIN BEARS 34-14
Monday 28 December
Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman
Pittsburg and Navy
If you are under the misguided impression that I would pick against Navy….
In (of all things) the “Military Bowl”
Then you have clearly been in my special eggnog
MIGHTY MIDSHIPMEN 31-17
Quick Lane Bowl
Central Michigan and Minnesota
I read about this Bowl game, It’s in Detroit Michigan
I have driven there, so shouldn’t the bowl game be called….
“The You Better Change Lanes Quickly, if you know what’s good for you Bowl”
O’ SOOOOOOOO VERY GOLDEN GOPHERS 38-34
Tuesday 29 December
Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl
California and Air Force
I have far too many friends in the Air Force to pick against them….
(Don’t you dare judge me)
Russell Athletic Bowl
North Carolina and Baylor
I will tell you what I like most about Russell Athletic wear….
Most of it is made in the great state of Alabama
TAR HEELS 38-34
NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl
Nevada and Colorado State
I thought a “NOVA” was a meteorite……
I have to get out more, I really do
RAM TOUGH 41-38
AdvoCare V100 Texas Bowl
LSU and Texas Tech
I will keep this one very simple….
I love Coach Miles and the Bayou Bengals
HEY FIGHTN’ TIGERS 28-17
Wednesday 30 December
Auburn and Memphis
Some of the best days of my life were spent at and on Legion Field.
I do love “the” Iron City
WAR DAMN EAGLES 44-41
North Carolina State and Mississippi State
Don’t they meant “Belt” Bowl
Now I am really confused
BULLY DOGS 41-17
Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl
Texas A&M and Louisville
The title of this bowl game is far too long and confusing….
Of course Ben Franklin was “American”
But I had no idea he was involved in mortgages etc.
Funny what you can learn from a bowl game
GIG EM AGGIES 34-33
National Funding Holiday Bowl
Southern California and Wisconsin
I’m sorry what?
The Nation is Funding my Vacation?
They lost me….
Thursday 31 December
Chick-fil-A Bowl Peach Bowl
Houston and Florida State
This may just be wishful thinking on my part…..
Oklahoma and Clemson
This one will come down to the last play, in the last quarter
DABO’S TIGERS 24-21
Michigan State and Alabama
This game is going to be an old fashioned slug fest
Get ready for a fight
CRIMSON TIDE 21-17
1 January 2016
Northwestern and Tennessee
I cannot in good conscience pull for a school….
That is a direction on the Rand McNally
Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl
Michigan and Florida
I don’t get it….
Citrus and Buffaloes and Wings that are wild….
This Bowl game is seriously confusing
MIGHTY GATORS 21-17
BattleFrog Fiesta Bowl
Notre Dame and Ohio State
O.k. I just have to ask……..
Because I have caught many a frog here
So what the hell is a “Battle Frog”?
They are too small to carry a weapon and they can’t hop with body armor on….
(I know I am over thinking this one, sorry)
FIHGTNGING ISIRISH 31-21
Rose Bowl presented by Northwestern Mutual
Stanford and Iowa
The Grand Daddy of all the Bowls…..
This is going to be a heck of a game
Allstate Sugar Bowl
Oklahoma State and Ole Miss
The Super Dome in the Big Easy…..
It’s going to be a good one
COWBOY UP! 38-28
2 January 2016
Penn State and Georgia
I am still angry that Coach Mark was fired…..
But I am still loyal…
HUNKER DOWN DAWGS 24-17
AutoZone Liberty Bowl
Kansas State and Arkansas
I think this one will be over before it starts….
These Razorbacks will be running
Valero Alamo Bowl
Oregon and Texas Christian
Not that it’s all that important to most of you…
But each and every morning..
The first thing I do
“Remember the Alamo”
(It’s how I roll)
HORNED FROGS 44-31
Motel 6 Cactus Bowl
West Virginia and Arizona State
I am sorry…
The, what “Bowl” game?
It sounds like something nasty is happening in the desert
11 January 2016
The Championship Game
One More Thing….
Your Championship Bowl Game Pick will be out after the New Year…..
Along with a few other surprises
So stay tuned…………..
But before we depart for the current year…
I want to thank you all for riding along with me on both websites this year.
It hasn’t always been easy to get these out to you
But it sure has been fun
Thank you all
Happy New Year and God Bless you All
THE CFB WIZARD
