Pigskin pickins: College football season begins tonight!
ESPN ^ | 3.9.01

Posted on 09/03/2009 12:24:58 PM PDT by meandog

It's week No. 1 in NCAA football. Tonight the S.C. Gamecocks of the SEC go against the N.C. Wolfpack of the ACC and No. 19 Boise State of the WAC takes on the No. 16 Oregon Ducks of the Pac-10.

My picks

S.C. will beat N.C. State tonight and Oregon will dump make Boise see the Blues.

Tomorrow's upsets: Georgia Bulldogs over Oklahoma State and T. Boone Pickings dreams for OWEbummer's wind farm country (33-28). Nevada will also send "Fat Charlie" finally packing at South Bend (28-24). BYU will give Oklahoma some fits but I don't see Mitt Romney's favorite team in the victory column as Sooners win (52-40). The other top 25 all face cream puffs.

If they're playing at Boise State, this could be the ugliest game ever played.

Au contraire' the Sooners will win but BYU has had an aerial attack going all the way back to Lavelle Edwards. Besides, Mormons don't drink or smoke wacky tabacky ... like half the Sooners who come from da hood. The only thing going for the Boomers is Sam Bradford and, if he ever gets injured, it's all over.

Let’s see what the Vegas line is...

NCState by 5

Oklahoma State by 5 1/2

Notre Dame by 14 1/2

Oklahoma by 22 1/2

You made some gutsy picks. 3 outright underdogs and one to beat the spread.

I’m not selling Nevada short...it is a good team and I remember Appalachian State and Michigan. The Georgia Bulldogs are without a true running back and and a star quarterback but they’ve always been ready. Besides their q.b. is a 5th year senior and may just have to tools to do it (the ‘Dogs have a great receiver). And, though I cannot stand him, “Darth Visor” Spurrier is a pretty good coach. S.C. looked terrible in its bowl game against Iowa but it was with the freshman who went through Steve Spurrier’s tantrums last year...now, that he’s a year seasoned, it should be a pretty good game. The Gamecocks have a good defense.

Ducks have been known to kill themselves trying to land on that field.

Reminds me of an OU joke ...

Q --- What do Bob Stoops and marijuana have in common ?

A --- They both get smoked in bowls.

Heck, since Bernie Bierman some say .. Mason had a shot at it there for a couple years..

Hey , if they can beat Michigan or Wisconsin once every 5 years I’m happy.. It’ll be a 50th year anniversary for the Gophers next year. ;-)

Oregon's uniforms are ugly enough by themselves. Put them next to the Blue Meanies on Smurf Turf and it's more than I can handle.

Hey, at Purdue prior to Tiller, our standard of success against Notre Dame was: hold ‘em under 50, and don’t get shut out....

Boise St. 19 Oregon 8 ... who watched it? A strange score for a strange game, capped off by a bizarre outburst at the end by Blount of Oregon. He was in some kind of tiff with a Boise player, and as Boise coaches pulled the Boise player away, Blount turned and cold-cocked him on the chin, actually knocking him out, by appearances. He collapsed to the ground, at any rate.

Then Blount responded to taunting by the fans on the way to the tunnel and was restrained by a number of staff, including a cop, I think. He had already been in trouble for “behavior”, and I predict his football career is over.

This was the first game for the Oregon coach, who had been offensive coordinator, with the former coach moving to athletic director. I don’t think it’s beyond imaging that he will resign or be fired, such was the fiasco. Oregon had no first downs in the first half, and then with that Blount thing at the end, it looks like a complete coaching breakdown to me.
