College Football Picks Week 6

October 2, 2019
By

Ladies and Gentlemen –

I guess when I wrote last week……

“Week 5 of the College Football Season is where dreams go to die…”

I must have been referring to my Prognostications for the week.

More on that a little later….

Enjoy your Picks..

Weekend Rewind…..

There is no point trying to sugar coat it…..

Each and every “Upset Special” I picked last week when right in the crapper

Maryland over Penn State…..WRONG!
(Damn Turtles! I should have known better)

Virginia Tech over Duke…..WRONG!
(Bunch of damn turkeys!)

Virginia over Notre Dame….WRONG!!!!
(Well Hell….)

Nebraska over Ohio State……WRONG! WRONG! WRONG!
(Children of the Corn…damn it all)

Then Toledo “Upset” Brigham Young…….

That did me in……

However, surprisingly enough The CFB Wizard finished the weekend at 40 and 7 or an astounding 85%. (Yeah I was shocked too)

That leaves Your Semi-Favorite College Football Prognosticator for the season at 304 and 41 or holding semi-steady at 87%.

Maybe I need to change something in my weekly Prognostications…..

You know to get back “On Track”

They don’t make “Lite-Bourbon” do they?

I didn’t think so, never mind

THE CFB WIZARD EMAIL(S) OF THE WEEK

Q: Dear Sir

I think your promotion of college mascots in reckless and dangerous!

There is a team called the Hurricanes in Miami!

Such a name for a climate change disaster that affects the entire planet and kills and destroys life is nothing short of wholesale ignorance and stupidity and at the very least is disrespectful to mother earth!

How do you even explain yourself!

Gretchen – Chicago, Illinois

A: Thank you for the well thought out and emotional email.

“IF” you think the Miami Hurricane mascot/nickname is bad…..

Then you certainly don’t want to see the Bill Clinton video tutorial on Tulsa….

He has an entirely different “take” on what “Golden Hurricanes” mean…

I’m just saying

Q: Dear Mister CFB Wizard

I beech you in the name of goodness, fairness and diversity to please limit your criticism of the Ivy League this season. We have the most esteemed universities and the minds of the “Best and Brightest” flock to our colleges from all over the world to unite in common goals for all peoples of the earth.

Please reconsider your unwarranted criticism of our universities.

Thank you

Sincerely –

Dr. Donna Menendez – Davis – Rogers- Freeman PhD
Harvard – Cambridge, Massachusetts

A: I don’t know about all that Donna (Whatever) But I do know this…..

Your football teams suck and your marching bands aren’t much better

O’ Yeah one more thing

Your name is stupid as hell too; you might as well call yourself “Donna Hyphen”

Q: Will You PLEASE STOP referring to the Colorado Mascot as Wynonna Judd!

YOU are ridiculous!!!

STOP IT! IT IS NOT FUNNY!

Debra G.
(President of the Wynonna Judd International Fan Club, Inc)
Nashville, Tennessee

A: I wasn’t trying to be funny I was simply being complimentary of Wynonna.

By the way

I think the polished calcium deposits on Wynonna’s head look fabulous.

Q: Hey Man!

You seriously blew it with your “Upset Specials” last week!!!

Holy Cow!!

You didn’t even come CLOSE on ANY of the “Upsets”!!!

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

Jerry – Amarillo, Texas

A: You are absolutely correct Jerry I missed each and every one of them by a mile …

But don’t worry, I am back this week and I have “Seen the Light”

I hope you do too

COLLEGE FOOTBALL NEWS!

HOT SEAT O’ METER:

Jeremy Pruitt – Tennessee

Well, the Velveteers had a bye week, but, unfortunately, they came up on the
short end of the stick there, too. 3 players bailed on the Velveeta’s and
(what the hell did we say here???

.Watch out, Vels. Ole’ Phil is waiting in the wings. Out of football all this time…. Got an Athletic Director fired….. Got the President of the University fired…. But, oh well, what’s that saying? “That’s how they do it on the mountain.”

CFB Hot Seat-O-Meter Rating – 90 to 95
(Buyout $11.5 million AND still paying Butch)

Will Muschamp – South Carolina

South Click’s Muschamp had a job-saving win over Kentucky last week. Will
was literally playing for his job. Another loss added to the 5 game skid
against the Wildcat’s would have probably really gotten AD Ray Tanner in the
mood for a serious evaluation of his football coach.

This win bought the ‘head ball coach’ of Sakerlina another week, but the upcoming schedule will certainly give everyone pause to contemplate the pro’s and con’s of a future with or without Coach Muschamp.

CFB Hot Seat-O-Meter Rating – Simmering at a semi-comfortable 70-75
(This isn’t bad if you’re attempting to keep your house warm on a cold winter
night)

Joe Morehead – Mississippi State

Joe’s got problems. A loss to Kansas was not expected. But even less
expected was an all out smack down by Auburn. And among the infamous on the
schedule ahead is…..

Alabama

LSU

A&M (And we’re giving them the benefit of the doubt)

CFB Hot Seat-O-Meter Rating – 75 to 80

Willie Taggert – Flarda State

Okay, can we talk honestly here? We know that all the ‘Nole fans long for
the days of Bowden and fumblerooski and days of yore.

But, c’mon, you know Willie Taggert is like that girl that you thought was so good looking, and you asked her out for the prom date, and when you picked her up you realized that all that pancake makeup on her face was to cover her raging acne
condition.

And to top it all off you discovered that she had a serious case of body odor that just made you gag. And you had all these regrets after you picked her up and drove around in your F-150. Yeah, that’s Willie.

But, as soon as you point out the obvious, all the ‘Nole fans circle the wagons and
get really pissy and say, “hey, that’s my girlfriend and I’ll kick you’re
ass cause I like a woman that doesn’t shower every day cause that means
she’s not some prissy little princess!!!” So, let’s be really honest. Jimbo
left you a train wreck. And Willie’s tripping over the railroad ties and
twisted boxcars. You need Builder Bob not Barbie.

CFB Hot Seat-O-Meter Rating – 85 to 90 (What would Colonel Jessep say?

“YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!”

A (BRIEF) CFB WIZARD COMMENTARY: Those of you that may know me..

Know one thing for sure about me…

EDITORS NOTE: “NO” not that thing the other thing, stay on track here people

I am talking about my aversion to rules and making more rules and more rules and making more rules, it’s as exhausting as reading that sentence I just wrote.

But I want to suggest to the powers that be in College Football that there be a penalty established for (Wait for it…)

“Illegal use of the Number 1 Finger”

KNOXVILLE, TN – SEPTEMBER 09, 2017 – Fans during the game between the Indiana State Sycamores and the Tennessee Volunteers at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, TN. Photo By Jake Bradshaw/Tennessee Athletics

There are few things more annoying than fans of a team that “may” or “may not” win enough games to be eligible for the “Prairie Belt Canned Sausage Bowl in Dahlonega Georgia” screaming at the camera while violently wagging the finger that proclaims…

“WE ARE NUMBER 1!!!”

My recommendation for the penalty, loss of down and a three minute pause while the rest of the college football world laughs like a bunch of drunken hyenas.

SOUTHERN METHODIST: Mighty Mustangs, WE SEE YOU!!!

UNDEFEATED! (So far..) Well done…

MICHIGAN: I am sorry (No I’m not..) But I couldn’t help it….

OHIO STATE: I couldn’t resist, sorry (Not really)

NORTH CAROLINA: You almost won by the hair of your chinny chin, chin….

EDITORS NOTE: I want to make this perfectly clear…

That comment was in no way a disparaging remark to our Chinese brothers and sisters.

That would be racist and insensitive

EDITORS NOTE: I have seen enough Kung Fu movies not to make them angry.

SOUTH CAROLINA: Told you so…..(Yet you doubted me…)

MINNESOTA: If you have a few minutes, I suggest you watch this….

Let me introduce you to Mr. O’Brien

It will do your heart good
