College Football Picks Week 12

November 18, 2021
By

Ladies and Gentlemen –

It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is right around the corner.

As a gentle reminder the cornucopia of Thanksgiving college football picks will be out next Wednesday before your Aunt Ida shows up at your house with that hideous casserole that smells like Pine Sole and Kitty Litter.

You are Welcome

Enjoy Your Picks

Weekend Rewind….

As “Doc” The World Famous Black Lab grins manically from the comfy confines of his recliner, relishing in his Mississippi State over Auburn pick, I must confess that once again this week, He has demonstrated his skills in picking canine mascots.

That being said, other than “Doc” being invited as Grand Marshall to two parades in the coming months, The CFB Wizard remains subpar for the week at 43 and 14 or 75% and 157 and 49 or 76% overall.

I don’t know if Doc’s secret to success in prognostication stems from the number of treats he gets on a daily basis or the reruns he watches on Animal Planet, but I may have to start giving his treats a try.

Just Saying

College Football News

TEXAS: I honestly can’t even look at you right now.

OKLAHOMA:
(Please see the above emotional statement)

VIRGINIA TECH: So, you fired your football coach this week?

Because you “think” you are a Championship worthy football team?

Coach Beamer ain’t coming back kids, sorry.

LSU: Is there any job openings there that can pay someone a crap load of money for doing a sorry job?

Asking for a friend

FLORIDA: So, with the thrilling “victory” over Mighty Samford last week …70 to 52.
When are you joining the BIG 12 Conference?

Just wondering

The CFB Wizard Email Question(s) of the Week

Q: Dear Sir,

Because your website is so widely read, I’d like for you to pass on this correspondence to your loyal following.

As the commissioner of the Southeastern Conference, one of my jobs is to ensure the integrity of our organization. Because of their lackluster performance against Kansas and due to the fact that they’ve lost 5 games in a row, we have re-examined the University of Texas’s application for admittance to our prestigious conference.

We decided that we will give them the opportunity to earn a spot, but with a key provision thrown in. The decision is that prior to admittance, Texas will be required to join and participate in the Sun Belt Conference as sort of a “probationary period”, if you will.

If they can compete and actually win a few games there they will be allowed to participate in the SEC. I mean, we feel compelled to take this drastic action because having, in essence, two Vanderbilt’s would be bad for our winning percentage and FPI. Thanks in advance for disseminating this to the rest of the college football world

Greg Sankey
Commissioner
Southeastern Conference

A: Oddly enough, that’s probably not a bad idea.


Q:
Howdy!

I have done invented a time machine! I done it too!

I can’t tell you how it works, cause somebody like them space people might try and steal it!

You know what I am saying!

Anyways, I done went back to 1998 when the damn Tennessee Vowelenteers was Number Damn One!

It was just awesome!

Before I come back to todays times, I heard Coach Fulmer say that we is back, and I believe it!

I included a picture of my RTM (Redneck Time Machine, it’s what I call it)

You want to sponsor my machine, like they do in NASCAR?

Scooter McClean – Crab Orchard, Tennessee

A: Let me help you out here Scooter.

Just because you are standing in a tub of water, with a metal colander on your head and jumper cables on your nipples connected to what appears to be an old boat battery doesn’t send you to the past, it just electrocutes you until you pass out.

Also, too, please don’t send any more pictures to The CFB Wizard Staff here, I had three female staff members throw up in the break room after they saw your pictures.

Q: I am madder than hell!

My name is Steven Seagull and people are always mispronouncing my name and I hate it!

The pronounce my name like that Hollywood Karate Actor guy, Steven Seagal.

His name is pronounced “SEA-GAUL” and mine is “SEA-GULL” like the bird, but people keep getting it wrong, so what should I do? It’s driving me crazy! Also, too, I am an Auburn fan, and I am frustrated about that too.

Thanks
Steven SEAGULL – Opelika, Alabama

A: Might I suggest you get an imaginary friend to discuss your frustrations with, as we are far too close to the Iron Bowl for me to lend any assistance to your myriad of issues.

Roll Tide

Q: Hey Mister Wizard!

I have finished your new book “Over Easy”, and I truly enjoyed it.

One question, with all the success over the book have you gotten any “stalkers” yet?
Success brings them out, I am sure!

Later –
Tammy – Odessa, Texas

A: Thank you for your kind words Tammy and I am glad you enjoyed the book.

Last week, I had an “issue” with a fan that I exchanged emails with.

I won’t go into any details here, nor will I share the pictures that she sent via email either.

However, I ensured “Regenia From Ardmore Oklahoma” had indeed purchased three (3) of the new books before I asked her, “How long did she play nose tackle for the Oklahoma Sooners?”

EDITORS NOTE: Don’t judge me, it’s about money for “Doc’s” new squeaky toys.

Q: Dear Mister CFB Wizard –

I have an odd question for you.

I have reread many of your past articles on the website and I was amazed to learn that you were one-time Mexican Action Movie Star “Rascadango”, is that really true?
Thank you!

Selena – Savannah, Georgia

A: “Si……..”

There is more on the way.

So Stay Tuned

One More Thing……..

Thank you all for promoting my newest book and spending your hard earned money on it.
