College Football Picks Week 5

October 1, 2020
By

Ladies and Gentlemen –

It is hard to believe that it’s October already…..

Seems like only yesterday we were all going to die of the Kung Fu Flu as the Killer Hornets descended upon us while a “Sharknado” was brewing over the Atlantic Coast.

Let’s not spend any time reminiscing about “good times” we have a lot of football to discuss this week with big games on the schedule such as; “The Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry”

Enjoy your games

Weekend Rewind…

Well other than hitting a little Ole “Upset Special” with Mississippi State over LSU, Your Favorite College Football Prognosticator was 24 and 9 last weekend or 73%.

That leaves The CFB Wizard overall for this weird season at 61 and 24 or 72%.

For those of you that may be interested, “Doc” The World-Famous Black Lab was a rather astounding 80% on his canine picks at 8 and 2. In all fairness, I couldn’t bring myself to point out that Texas Christian are the Horned Frogs, NOT the Horned Dogs, or he would have been at 90%.

IF you think I am jealous of his amazing prognostication skills, you would be wrong.

Where do you think he got them from?

COLLEGE FOOTBALL NEWS

THE BIG TEN CONFERENCE: Our good friend, Country Music Superstar

“Sylacauga Ledbetter”

Has a message for the fans of The Big Ten Conference
This should make them feel better

Enjoy….

THE PAC 12 CONFERENCE: Last week the talking heads of the Conference stated they would be having a SEVEN (“Yes” I said SEVEN….) game college football season beginning in November.

Reminds me of the college Junior Varsity (JV) schedules we used to have.

Junior Varsity….

Yeah, that sounds about right.

TEXAS: I don’t know “IF” are aware of this or not….

But it’s SPELLED: DEFENSE, not, DUD-FENSE.

OKLAHOMA: (Please see the above description)

ESPN: Don’t know if you read this statement last week from ESPN “commentator” Mark Jones

“Police never saved me. Never helped me. Never protected me. Never taken a bullet for me,” he tweeted on Wednesday afternoon after the Taylor ruling was announced. “Never kept me safe in a protest. Never stopped the racist from taking my Black Lives Matter flag off my house. I could do without em.”
Today, he made another bold proclamation: Jones says he’ll take his police escort to the game he is set to call Saturday to “take the day off.” He says that he’d “rather not have the officer shoot me because he feared for his life because of my black skin or other dumb ish.”

Apparently, ESPN’s new motto is, “IF it Ain’t Broke, then we got to go WOKE”

LSU: I think Coach O of LSU said it beast after the Bulldogs upset win last Saturday.

“Shulaga Degra Grendulla Bobussila, Fregassmulla on tha Stemruggasit, grow Tigggggas.”

EDITORS NOTE: I think that summed it up nicely

MISSISSIPPI STATE: After picking the “Upset of the Week” last week…

I am Honored

But I cannot accept your nomination to be the next Mayor of Stark Vegas.

However Doc and I will accept your invitation to be Grand Marshall at the Bulldog Parade this year.

Thank you

SOUTH CAROLINA: The misery in Columbia South Carolina lives on for another year…

See no win, hear no win, speak no win

MICHIGAN: Congratulations!

This is the FIRST time in over 25 years that the Wolverines are UNDEFEATED going into October!

THE CFB WIZARD EMAILS OF THE WEEK

Q: Dear Sir –

My name is Ms. Claris D. Harrison and I have started a new business with a revolutionary idea.

After seeing pictures of your service dog “Doc” on your website, a marvelous idea came to me.

I have started “Claris’s Service Monkey Service”

My goal is to train a variety of primates as service animals.

I have begun training a young rhesus monkey that I have named “Chewy” as my first subject.

Would you like to see a picture of my monkey?

Sincerely
Claris D. Harrison – Rockford, Illinois

A: No ma’am, I DO NOT want to see a picture of your damn monkey.

Q: Greetings from Canada!

Although we do not play the same form of football that you in the states do, we nonetheless enjoy our football here! And we also LOVE our Hockey!

You are quite the talented writer and was wondering “IF” you would consider writing about what is going on with the Stanley Cup?

Thank you
Charles – Toronto, Canada

A: Charles I am no more interested in what people are doing with Stanley’s Cup than I am at looking at Claris’s damn monkey.

Q: Dear Mister CFB Wizard –

After being directed towards your website by a co-worker and reading your rather insensitive commentary on social reforms, I have concluded that you are the most callous, heartless, and most uncaring person I have ever witnessed.

Freda C. Whitmer – Atlanta, Georgia

A: If I am SO Callous, heartless, insensitive, and uncaring?

Then explain to me why I always cry at the end of “The Dirty Dozen” when Jim Brown gets killed.

Q: Dear Mr. Wizard

What do you think is the toughest job in college football?

Thanks!
Judi G. – Panama City, Florida

A: That’s an excellent question Judi.

I would say the toughest job in college football would be the person that has to decipher and translates what Coach O of LSU says while he’s wearing a mask.
