The records for this week stand as such: Red is 20-10 after an impressive 8-2 week and I stand at 15-15 after an impressively mediocre 5-5 performance. After two weeks of disagreeing on 70% of the games we pick in the NCAA, we disagree on only 3 this week. On to the picks...
Iggins!: Tulsa has a very good offense, and playing at home for only the 2nd time this year will be an advantage, but Boise State should be in a bigger conference.
Code Red: Not much of a problem here.
Code Red: As much as I hate
Iggins!: Why do you hate Cincinnati so much? They’re actually quite good. Be pissed off at TCU, not Cinci. Cincinnati wins.
Iggins!: I feel like this will be
Code Red: I’m with my comrade on this one. It’s not so much that I think
Code Red: Mindless, god awfully stupid turnovers ruined
Iggins!: Iowa wins everything ugly. And you’re right, at this point, 6 games in, you have to say that turnovers against Iowa aren’t a fluke; Iowa just hawks the ball (no pun intended). Iowa wins and then I start to hyperventilate because they have to go to MSU at night after this.
#6 USC @ #25 Notre Dame
Iggins!: Notre Dame has a very good offense and a pile of shit on defense. That being said, I think Notre Dame will stick with USC and pull out a close one in the end (because I made this pick 3 weeks ago and I am sticking with it, damnit). Notre Dame wins.
Code Red: A Haiku-
Fuckin Notre Dame
They coast on easy schedule
Good team they are not.
Texas Tech @ #15 Nebraska
Code Red: As much as I’d love to call the Texas Tech upset,
Iggins!: Well I don’t have a vagina, and my theory is that the Big 12 North is so superior to the South that even the 5th best team in the North can beat the best in the South. Texas Tech wins.
Iggins!: God I hate the triple option. Virginia Tech wins.
Code Red: The triple option is 14-5 since it moved to Georgia Tech. It works. Why my esteemed colleague must hate that it’s because some teams can actually do shit like run the triple option that makes college football great, I don’t know. Virginia Tech will win this game, because they’re an outstanding team with a fantastic defense, and then Iggins! will point this out as proof that the triple option sucks, to which I’ll point out that VT’s defense has had no problem shutting down spread offenses and the like as well, and he’ll deny all logic and evidence and I’ll be forced to jab a pair of scissors in his throat and laugh as the blood bubbles out and the wheezing sound of his last, forced breaths hits the air. Virginia Tech wins.
Iggins!: Hey, if you can hate Cincinnati for no reason I can hate Ga Tech for no reason.
Stanford @ Arizona
Code Red: Stanford will rebound from last week’s disappointment against
Iggins!: Arizona got screwed hard and long last week on an interception returned for a TD that hit the ground. The Pac-10 has 6 quality teams. Very impressive. Arizona wins.
Code Red: I would throw
Code Red: This could very well be a trap game. Tebow’s not 100% yet and the hangover from the LSU game could be considerable.
Iggins!: Florida is better than Arkansas. Florida wins.
