Jimmyshivers ACC Bowl Game Selections

For those of us who did not have the seasons that we would have liked to have had, bowl season offers an opportunity to restore some handicapping confidence going into the offseason.  It is a poor time to chase losses due to the inability to handicap motivation of most of these teams, but it is a great chance to get back to some fundimental handicapping and attempt to put some positive units back into the ledger. For the...

2013 Las Vegas Bowl Preview – USC vs Fresno ...

The Fresno State Bulldogs bring their potent offense to the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl to face the USC Trojans. Fresno State is all about putting points on the board and it led them to the Mountain West title with a victory over Utah State. That was a great performance considering this team saw their dream of an undefeated season go by the wayside on the final day of the regular season in a 62-52 loss to San Jose State. The...

The 2013 Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl Preview

In one of the more interesting non-BCS bowls of the season, Fresno State and Southern California will square off in the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl. The Trojans will be coached by an interim-interim head coach, Clay Helton. Helton is USC’s third coach of the 2013 season after Lane Kiffin was fired to start the year and interim coach Ed Orgeron turned in his resignation after being passed over for the permanent job. Helton...

Jimmy Singh College Football Week #14

  YTD – 27-26   I would like to wish all the readers a Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you all have a great holiday week and be merry and eat and be safe! I am trying to get my card out early since it will be a busy time for everyone late.  The write-ups may be a little short.   Tulane +13 at Rice too many points here.  Rice has only beaten 3 teams by double digits this year and that is LaTech, New Mexico St and...

Jimmyshivers Week 13 NCAA Football Picks

Due to a pair of deaths in my family, I refrained from posting last weeks plays.  I still wound up playing a few games and had an OK week, but my head wasn’t in any kind of place to put together write-ups.  It’s been a really weird year for me this year, in that I’ve had multiple major life events occur that have prevented me from being able to get a thread posted.  I’m looking forward to continuing...

For your consideration: Week # 13

Oregon State vs. Washington When betting college football in mid to late November it can get pretty tricky.  By this time, teams can smell bowl berths and know exactly what they need to get done.  Sometimes we forget, that 6 wins only qualifies you for a bowl, it does not guarantee you one. That being said, I believe Oregon State is in big trouble of not receiving an invitation, even though they have 6 wins.  If the Beavers...

For your consideration: Week # 12

Okay…call me crazy, even a little naive, but I have a sneaky suspicion about Washington State this weekend.  I know the Cougs are ranked 103rd in total defense and 85th in rushing defense.  And I know they are going up against Ka’Deem Carey, one of the best running backs in the country, making the Wildcats 12th in the country in rushing yards. But if you’ve been reading my articles this season, you should...

Jimmyshivers Week #11 College Football Selections

I decided to take week 10 off from posting a thread with my thoughts, as honestly my head wasn’t in the right place following an 0-4 week that saw me get brutally backdoored in 3 of the games.  Sometimes things just aren’t running well, and for me when you aren’t catching any breaks the best course of action is to take some time off and to recalibrate your perspective.  Their is a lot to like with this card...
