2017 SEC Bowl Game Picks – Part One

This will be a two-part post. First up, all bowl games before New Year’s Day. Well, this season could’ve been better. We finished with a 7-6 record overall in 2017 which brings our total to 25-15 since the beginning of the 2015 season. Unfortunately, my SEC Championship post didn’t make it online, but I would have gone with Georgia. So while it’s a loss, it’s not technically a loss because if it...

Stanford won their last 3 games, while the Trojans finished winning their final 4 games of...

2017 SEC Pick of the Week – Week Thirteen

It’s always nice, even though they say you can’t do it again, to go home. By that, I of course mean going with the Florida Gators. Both literally and figuratively. Their 36-7 win over UAB in their first home game in a long time gave us a victory in our pick of the week column to get us to 7-5 on the year. Now it’s on to my favorite weekend of the year. It’s freaking rivalry week! And even some non-SEC...

Two former players...

2017 SEC Pick of the Week – Week Twelve

For what seems like the fourth or fifth time this season, no matter which team I throw my belief behind they lose. And they always seem to lose bad. And very quickly. This week’s victim: Georgia. Who lost 40-17 to Auburn. Probably because I picked them to win handily. LSU, Auburn (twice, maybe), Mississippi State and now Georgia, have all suffered from what appears to be The Saturday Edge SEC Curse. I’m open to...

VJ Sports – CFB Picks – Week #12

#308 Miami Ohio -3 (4*)  #371 Arizona St -7 (3*) #381 Missouri -8 (3*) #403 Army +2.5 (3*) #321 Rutgers +11 (3*) #393 LSU -15.5 (3*) #408 Florida Atl -14 -120 (3*) . . *MAC CONF – GAME OF THE WEEK:   #308 Miami Ohio -3 (4*)   In this match-up, we have two teams with extremely different motivations levels entering this game. Both teams suffered a lot of bad losses during the season, but previous to last week’s...

2017 SEC Pick of the Week – Week Eleven

Kurt Russell is one of my favorite actors, Especially his older stuff, Overboard, etc. Captain Ron is absolutely hilarious. But, remember the scene in the movie Miracle about the USA hockey team beating the Soviets in 1980 when he and one of the hockey committee leaders are walking down the street and the Soviets pass them heading the other way. Kurt Russell says “Somebody is going to beat those guys.” Well,...

2017 SEC Pick of the Week – Week Ten

Sometimes I hate being right. I especially hate being right when it costs the Florida Gators. Last week I picked Georgia to beat Florida and well that’s exactly what happened. The loss cost Florida dearly. Along with being eliminated in the SEC East division race the loss cost Florida the services of head coach Jim McElwain. For a coach who won back to back division titles the fall from grace was both quick and...

West Coast Bias – Week Ten Plays

YTD: 23-23  LW: 3-1 349 Nevada +22 – Too many points here for a Reno squad that has found some momentum the last few weeks putting up 35, 42, and 42 the last three games.  Boise is not really blowing out teams like they typically do as QB Rypien just hasn’t been as good this season and the Smurfs just aren’t as explosive, as they have been leaning on the defense so far in 2017.  I have this number in the 15.5...

2017 SEC Pick of the Week – Week Nine

As I’m sure you’ll agree, college football sure is one heck of a fickle mistress. We go from from family man to FAN-actic rather quickly on Saturdays (and NFL Sundays for that matter) really quickly don’t we? Yet sometimes, we don’t receive anything in return. It’s all good though. There’s nothing wrong with that at all, in my opinion. For better or worse, of course. Apologies for the...
