Cavalcade of Whimsy: Clemson's Schedule, Missing Tennessee, UCF's Possible Beef


This week’s reason I should be the SEVENTH prognosticator on the set of the new FOX College Football Pregame thingy …

If it were up to me, I’d pick a Kent State field hockey game over fireworks. Okay, I lied. I like fireworks more than field hockey, but not if they’re being shot off in the daytime – the fireworks, not the field hockey. So yeah … I was right the first time. I’d rather see what happens in the second overtime in the field hockey thing. I’d actually rather see field hockey with fireworks going off, and …

The sure-thing, 100%, rock-solid lock, sell the house, sell the kids, no doubt about it picks of the century for this week

PICK SO FAR: 8-4 SU, 7-5 ATS

I have failed you. I have let you down, as I steer you down the wrong path.

Maybe once in a while there’s a misfire on a pick against the spread … maybe. But getting three straight up picks wrong last week (Texas A&M, Tennessee and Stanford) is unacceptable.

Fortunately, these picks are all correct.

– Maryland -7 over Temple
– Colorado -3 over Air Force
– Iowa -2 over Iowa State
– Syracuse +27.5 over Clemson (but Clemson to win outright)
– Colorado State +10 over Arkansas (but Arkansas straight up)

1) Overrated: Entering the transfer portal the second you don’t win the starting quarterback job, or else you, too could be …

Sorry if this column sucked, I wasn’t my fault …
