September 4, 2019

Ladies and Gentlemen –

Have you ever seen a true freshman punter sail one into the stands?

Yeah that was me last week on the Week One Picks….

Thanks’ a lot you bunch of heavily favored jackasses…

(Yeah it was that bad…)

See for yourselves…


A CFB WIZARD (BRIEF) COMMENTARY

You know as long as I have been doing this article….

And picking college football games…

One would have thought that I would have seen just about everything

You would be incorrect in that assumption.

I have never (ever) had such a low percentage on Week 1…

Before I provide my hideous numbers from last week, I feel it incumbent upon me as a noted Southern Author, College Football Prognosticator and Celebrity of some note, my Top 5 excuses from last week on my poor performance.

1. “Doc” the World famous Black lab and I were in the process of moving The CFB Wizard Headquarters and were distracted by the new shrubbery and swimming pool at the new location. (“Yes” we peed on or in both, Don’t judge us)

2. “Doc” and I had to rush to enjoy our “Battleship” Night (Don’t judge us)

3. I was distracted by a shiny object while writing the picks and it wasn’t a squirrel in an aluminum foil suit as I had first thought.

4. I don’t write as well on artificial turf… (Don’t judge me)

5. Two words….Sock Monkey

Now that you understand, here is the horrible truth…

Week One…..Your Favorite College Football Prognosticator 58 and 7 or 88%

EMAIL OF THE WEEK

Q: Dear Sir,

I am Johnson Winfield Lincoln, President of the NCFFA, National Collegiate Football Fan Association (N-C-Double-F-A). Our organization has existed behind the scenes for years and advocates for fans of College Football.

We have led many successful events and assisted fans with creating long lasting rituals for over 100 years. For example, in the 50’s before automobiles really became big, we assisted Ole Miss with implementing the “tailgate” at The Grove, rather than cut the majestic oaks there for firewood and timber.

We have assisted countless institutions with the implementation of fan participatory events like ‘White Outs’ or ‘Black Outs’. We did, however, try to dissuade the University of Georgia from having their famous “Black Out” event at the Georgia Dome for the Alabama game years ago. We just didn’t feel that Coach Richt really stood a chance on that evening.

But what the heck (Excuse my French!)

But, getting to the point, in light of the recent spate of collegiate athletes leaving their colleges and universities and transferring to other programs, we have come up with a novel concept that should catch on as we progress through the football season.

After seeing teams like the Tennessee Volunteers and Florida State Seminoles fail to meet the lofty expectations of their fan base, we have set up our own “Transfer Portal.”

Let’s face it. No one wants to spend money on tickets, travel, and memorabilia only to be left in tears cheering for a team that is obviously going nowhere year after year. The basic premise is that if a fan in good standing of the NCFFA, decides that he or she has suffered enough disappointment and heartbreak, they may simply send notification of ‘intent to transfer’ to the NCFFA for entry into the transfer portal.

Afterwards, we will review the application and assign another institution for the applicant to follow. For instance, a Tennessee Volunteer fan would naturally be assigned a new fanbase of either Auburn or Florida since the natural orange color can easily be converted to a new team.

A Florida State fan would be assigned Virginia Tech or Texas A&M or Mississippi State since that would also constitute a natural progression of color. An Ohio State fan would unfortunately be prohibited from being assigned another Power 5 University, because, well, nobody really likes them.
 
So, as you can see, we have once again created a solution for that age old problem of following a team that is going through some really, really tough times. We encourage fans from South Carolina, Missouri, Arkansas and UCLA to join the NCFFA and become a fan of a new team!!!!
 
Johnson W. Lincoln
President
NCFFA
