College Football Picks Week Three

September 15, 2021
By

Ladies and Gentlemen –

It’s week three and some of you are already despondent and depressed.

Don’t be. There is still a lot of football left to be played.

Well unless you are, (You know who you are, no need for me to embarrass you here)

But don’t cry in your beer just yet.

Let’s get to this week’s picks

Enjoy

Weekend Rewind…

It would appear Your Favorite College Football Prognosticator knocked the seasonal rust off last week posting a rather impressive 64 and 6 record or 91% in week two.

Astounding, I know, but please don’t embarrass me with words like “genius” or “phenom” that will only encourage stalkers and empower those already protesting in front of The CFB Wizard Headquarters LLC.

But I digress…

Overall, The CFB Wizard (after two weeks) is 132 and 20 or 87% thus far in the season.

We have a big week ahead and this is no time to rest on our laurels, I don’t rest on those at all.

Actually, “Doc” The World-Famous Black Lab and I rest together in the recliner.

Just so you know

COLLEGE FOOTBALL NEWS

NAVY: Just FYI here Midshipmen. “IF” you wear uniforms honoring the Marine Corps then you are therefore under an obligation to win the damn game.

Nobody ever said, “Let’s Lose one for the Gipper”

CENTRAL FLORIDA: It would appear they are “All In” for Gus in Orlando,
You know, just like Auburn “was” once.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA: So, you fired Coach Helton after only the second game?

Really?

What, not WOKE enough for you?

ARKANSAS: Well done Razorbacks, well done. Congratulations.

TEXAS: I will leave this one right here..

IOWA: These Hawkeyes are for real, Believe it

THE CFB WIZARD EMAIL QUESTIONS and ANSWERS

Q: Your Picks are Amazing!

You picked upset after upset last week!

What’s your secret? How do you do it?

Natalie – Boone, Kentucky

A: I cannot divulge such secrets anymore than Colonel Sanders will reveal his seven spices for Kentucky Fried Chicken. However, I will say that it involves something that sounds like “Shmal-Cohol”

Q: You IDIOT!

The Coach at THE University of Tennessee is JOSH HEUPEL!

His name is NOT Juicy Nipple!

You Dumbass!

Frank – Chattanooga, Tennessee

A: Frank I think your anger is misplaced as well as unhealthy.

Your problem is NOT with me, but with “Autocorrect.”

Maybe autocorrect knows something you don’t know, just saying.

Go Vowels

Q: Hello
I come from Mexico and I am the Armando
I want the work on the football at CFB Wizard.
The football, American.
Good – yes
Yes – Thank you
Armando

A: I will give you this Armando.

You are more articulate than our damn president.

Q: Hey Man!

I really enjoyed your story last week on Mike Rights “See More Pig”!

So, let me ask you this, where can you buy a Christmas sweater for a pig?

Thanks!
Jerry – Wartburg, Tennessee

A: The same place you can buy lingerie for a pig.

Fredericks of Knoxville

Next Week…

Your Weekly Pick’s will be out at the “usual” time next week along with a few other stories to keep you entertained.

Speaking of being entertained, the “new” book entitled “Over Easy” is slated to be out after Thanksgiving (Just in time for Christmas, Hannukah or whatever) and we will have more details on it in the coming weeks.

So stay Tuned

One More Thing….

In the event you were blissfully unaware, you have a “new” story on Mikerights.com again this week.

I have been plying the humor to you the past few weeks for one very important reason.

Because there have been damn few things lately to laugh about.

Keep Smiling and Keep the Faith

Be good to those around you this week and be kind to yourselves too.
