College Football Picks Week 10

November 3, 2016
By

Ladies and Gentlemen –

I know that many of you got more “Tricks” than “Treats” last weekend…

Sure, some of you received candy that expired in 1989 and it couldn’t dissolve in a can of gasoline, I get it.

A couple of you may have even chipped a tooth and thrown something at your television.

It was a tough weekend, I understand

Don’t despair

It’s too early to throw in the towel

Well unless you are….

Tennessee

UCLA

Michigan State

Baylor

Houston

West Virginia

Then it’s time to totally stomp on the “despair pedal”

EDITORS NOTE:
And just so I don’t get any additional complaints this week, I want to assure you all the “Trick” reference above was in no way referring to or condoning prostitution.

Weekend Rewind….

Before you even mention it….

I know (I know) I didn’t hit any of the upsets last weekend and I missed the ones I picked

If you must know, I bought some “circus peanuts” for Halloween that were out of date and they upset my stomach and quite frankly caused me to spend an inordinate amount of time in the bathroom allowing me to catch up on my reading, if you know what I mean.

I am not proud of it, nor am I proud I forgot to buy toilet paper last week.

And “NO” I don’t want to talk about it any further

That being said, Your Favorite College Football Prognosticator was a respectable 41 and 9 or 82% last week, leaving The CFB Wizard at 435 and 101 or 82% for the 2016 season.

I remember when I made 82% on Physics test in college once…

Thank goodness that Chinese exchange student didn’t understand the monetary exchange rate for a twenty dollar bill. Or I might have had to take the test myself.

EDITORS NOTE: Don’t judge me, please

THE CFB WIZARD CLASSIFIEDS

As was previously mentioned in other articles, in this tough economic climate even The CFB Wizard has had to resort to other “alternative” sponsors, to include (sadly) classifieds.

Please forgive this brief interruption to your college football picks…

Even Your Favorite College Football Prognosticator has to pay the bills…

UrinalTea

EDITORS NOTE: I don’t know what this is “exactly”

All I know is, I’m not drinking it….

Poo

EDITORS NOTE: I knew a guy named Jimmy when I was a kid who would poop in a potato chip bag and put it on the teacher’s desk during recess. I never thought he would make a living out of that stunt. Good on him, I guess….

Shitto

EDITORS NOTE:
Sounds like the nickname people gave me after I attended my last West Texas Chili cook-off

PERSONALS

Wanted: “Hello Ladies, My name is Bil (with one “L”) because I’m a Rebel…

Deal with it Haters!

I’m a life long Auburn Fan and I’m nothing but War Damn Eagle!

I like playing CandyLand, living in my grandmother’s basement and petting anything made out of velvet.

I am looking for a female Auburn fan who loves life, the War Eagle Tigers and doesn’t mind a flashlight (candle) lit dinner of beanie weenies and saltine crackers and long walks at the recyclable center (where I work).

Hit me up Ladies, I’m available…

A HILARIOUS SELECTION OF BAD AND BIZARRE TINDER PROFILE PHOTOS HAVE APPEARED IN AN INTERNET GALLERY.

A HILARIOUS SELECTION OF BAD AND BIZARRE TINDER PROFILE PHOTOS HAVE APPEARED IN AN INTERNET GALLERY.

EDITORS NOTE: “Your available”….Of course you are

COLLEGE FOOTBALL NEWS

I am going to depart from the normal format for the college football news to introduce a buddy of mine from Birmingham Alabama, Jermaine “Funnymaine” Johnson.

I discovered his YouTube site last week with his “weekly” rewind of the games.

This is the “one” video I watched and I was hooked immediately.

So with all the necessary introductions accomplished, I give you this past weeks “rewind” and college football news by Jermaine “Funnymaine” Johnson.

Subscribe to his channel, you will be glad you did.

Enjoy….


EMAIL QUESTIONS and ANSWERS

Q: Hello Sir

My name is Alabaster Saginaw and I received a unanimous tip recently about your college football site. So let me say this…

When Alabaster Saginaw likes something, Alabaster Saginaw really likes something.

And I want to say that Alabaster Saginaw likes your college football website!

In fact my son, Alabaster Saginaw Junior likes your website almost as much as Alabaster Saginaw Senior if you know what Mr. Alabaster Saginaw Senior means.

Thank you for your time

Respectfully –

Alabaster Saginaw – Montgomery, Alabama

A: The CFB Wizard thanks you Mr. Alabaster Saginaw and The CFB Wizard greatly appreciates the kind words and encouragement from Mr. Alabaster Saginaw.

EDITORS NOTE: I have to admit, all that “third person” business was exhausting

But I have to give Alabaster Saginaw this, that’s a fun name to say….

Q: Dear Mr. CFB Wizard

From the most recent questions poised to you from visitors to your beloved South you appear to have quite an in-depth knowledge of Southern etiquette.

So my question is this, what (in your opinion) is one of the most interesting or lesser known habits’ or Southernisms that would otherwise go unnoticed by the majority of us outside the South.

Thank you

Marjorie – Bloomington, Indiana

A: Thank you for the kind email Marjorie

A little known Southern Factoid for you….

Every Southern male over the age of fifty, regardless of race, creed or color will typically end each sentence with some form of a cuss word.

Example….

“Jimmy, how many times have I told you to stay off the wood pile? Damn!”

Another Example….

“Bobby we have been calling you for twenty minutes, where have you been? Hell Fire!”

Certainly there are other examples I could use, but this is a family column.

Q: Dear Mister Wizard

I read and saw last week’s pick and video you conveniently posted at the end of the article. Let me ask you this dumbass.

“IF” God was so interested in college football then why isn’t Notre Dame the number one team in the country?????

Anonymous – Elmira, New York

A: That’s an easy question Mr. Anonymous…

Because God doesn’t like Notre Dame (It’s in the Bible)

“IF” you haven’t seen the Colorado team led Wynonna Judd onto the field before the game then you don’t know what you are missing.

One More Thing….

I want to take this opportunity to thank Harley for his outstanding article this week….

I would also like to thank everyone from the “Eglin Gang” who has kept me motivated and encouraged through trials and tribulations, death and disease and everything in between. I love you guys, thank you for everything. I truly appreciate each and every one of you.

Enjoy your weekend
