College Football Picks Week 10

November 5, 2020
By

Ladies and Gentlemen –

We have a lot of games to cover on the slate this week!

The PAC 12 is returning to play with their Junior Varsity (JV) schedule, as is the Mid-American Conference (MAC) with something attuned to a Pop Warner schedule that you might recognize in your local town.

Gosh I can feel the electricity from here, can’t you?

In case you didn’t know it, that was sarcasm.

Enjoy Your Picks…

Weekend Rewind…

Once again like every other Halloween I picked more tricks than treats.
To be honest, I blame it all on out of date candy corn that I ate.

That’s my story and I am sticking to it.

But with that being said, Your Favorite College Football Prognosticator was a rather lack luster 33 and 12 0r 73% for Halloween weekend and as I am sure you already know, didn’t get a single “Upset Special” correct either.

EDITORS NOTE: But seriously, it was the out of date candy corn, I am sure of it.

That leaves The CFB Wizard at 212 and 59 or 78% for this strange season.

I assure you the picks this week will be better, as I have already thrown the out of date candy corn in the trash. Just so you know.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL NEWS

FLORIDA:

In case you didn’t know Coach Dan….

While you talk about class it’s important to remember this;

Part of the word in “Class” is “Ass”

So, don’t show yours

FLORIDA PART II: Explain this to me

You can’t sing or have the band play “Gator Bait” because it’s been deemed as “racist”

But you can have a website called “Gator Bait” and a magazine for “insiders” called Gator Bait.

So, I guess you can visit “racist” websites you just can’t sing about it, right?
O.k., that explains everything to me.

INDIANA: We see you Hoosiers! We see you…

LSU: I will leave this one right here, enjoy

MICHIGAN: I understand that the phone call in Ann Arbor went something like this…

9-1-1, what’s your emergency?”

“Uhhhh… Yeah. Can you send the police over to the corner of Main St and Stadium Blvd?”

“Sir????”

“Yes, this Michigan State game isn’t going so good and I’m about to be attacked by an angry mob and I need to get the hell out of here!!!”

COASTAL CAROLINA: These Birds are for real

Believe it

TENNESSEE: This one was sent to me, I couldn’t resist

BIG 12: Well it was fun while it lasted….

See you in the playoffs next year

Maybe

THE CFB WIZARD EMAILS OF THE WEEK

Q: Sir,

As a member of the Texas Longhorns marching band, I have to say that I am so proud of our members who have chosen NOT to play the RACIST and BIGOTED and TOTALLY abhorrent “Eyes of Texas” after every game.

I mean, Are the ‘Eyes of Texas’ upon you because they want to suppress minority voters? “You cannot get away?” “Don’t think you can escape them?”

It is obvious that this University is non-inclusive and intolerant and by not playing this vile ditty we are showing that we don’t condone the meaning behind the song. And speaking of offensive and repulsive practices,

look at the mascot.

That is obviously an abusive use of an animal!!! And they even go so far as to show a video of this poor creature standing outside in freezing weather during their annual “Bevo Christmas” program!!!

I believe we should be more like Texas A&M. Have you ever seen their cheer guys? They dress in nice white uniforms and do synchronized dance moves in a warm, non-threatening, gentle manner. Change is coming to our fine, yet currently misguided university, and we hope you will help us in that endeavor.

Sincerely,

Sally “Saxy Mama” Lexington

Austin, Tx

A: Sally, I think you are crazy as a Texas Road Lizard

Q: Hey Mister Wizard!

What about having a Coaches Hot Seat section this year!
There are a bunch of Coaches in trouble already this season!
Thanks!
Matt – Cleveland, Mississippi

A: Funny you should ask Matt, The CFB Wizard Staff has been working on that this week.

Here is a brief teaser for next week

Jim Harbaugh of Michigan – Last year was supposed to be Michigan’s year. And the year before. But, this season started off in impressive fashion with the Wolverine’s claiming a 49-24 victory over a resurging Minnesota team. And then the wheels fell off against Michigan State as Blue fell short 27-24. There are rumblings up in Ann Arbor and it’s not an earthquake that people fans are concerned about. According to USA Today, Harbaugh makes over $8 million this year on a contract that ends in 2021.

CFB Wizard Hot Seat-O-Meter Rating: 90+ (Harbaugh’s buyout is only $6 million. That’s “somewhat” reasonable for a buyout. But, with budget shortfalls due to the China Virus, will they pull the string or wait? Or, maybe, because he’s a former Woverine player, they’ll encourage him to quietly ride off into the sunset and back to the NFL.)

Q: Man, you didn’t get jack squat right last week!

What gives O’ Great College Football Prognosticator?

Glen – Spartanburg, South Carolina

A: I am telling you it was the out of date candy corn I ate.

Instead of eating it all, I should have passed it out to the kids for Halloween.

Don’t judge me, it builds character.

Q: I have a stupid question for you

Why don’t the Amish have a college and participate in collegiate athletics?
Thank you

Jedidiah – Lancaster, Pennsylvania

A: The answer to that is simple

They can’t play any night games because electricity is from the devil.

Q: Sire Mr The Wizard,

2 year gone ago I was unployed and no money had I to by the food for family or other things like go to the football match. Then on a day so not long ago I fond this website to work from computer at my home and now make the money that pull me from my povertys and enjoy footballs played all the time.
