College Football Picks Week 4

September 23, 2021
By

Ladies and Gentlemen –

I don’t know about you dear readers.

But I have finally settled down after last weekend and it’s good thing too.

I could have threaded a sewing machine with it running last Saturday and if I hadn’t of calmed down I dare say this week’s picks would have been written in something a tune to Egyptian calligraphy.

We have a lot to get to this week, so let’s not waste any more time here.

Enjoy

Weekend Rewind…..

Your Favorite College Football Prognosticator picked more than a few “Upsets” last week and to prove that point I “would’ve” been invited to Brigham Young to celebrate last week’s win if it were not for my love of caffeine and alcohol, so there is that.

But I digress

The CFB Wizard was a somewhat disappointing 48 and 11 or 81% last weekend, which leaves me at 180 and 31 or holding steady at 85% after three weeks.

In all fairness, I am sure I would have done better last week, but the cheese in the cheese dip was probably expired and “may” or “may not” of had both “Doc” the World-Famous Black Lab and myself squatting in the back yard. Don’t worry we both hosed off before we came back into the house.

Sorry for the Visual.

SPECIAL GUEST STAR

I am pleased, no I am ecstatic to announce that Country Music Superstar Sylacauga Ledbetter has graciously interrupted his nationwide tour to produce something specifically for The CFB Wizard and the College Football Fans of the website.

A man who needs no introduction, Ladies and Gentlemen, I present Sylacauga Ledbetter, Enjoy.
