Week 1 is in the books and as you can imagine, I am pretty ticked. Losing stinks and PSU will get better, but that is for another twitter rant now. My picks went 5-1 and I almost hit on my Iowa upset, but they lucked out and got the win. Also, the media was introduced to the term “run-on” rather than “walk-on” today. I hope that wasn’t a subliminal shot at Evil Bill and his rather lengthy sentences.
Nebraska at UCLA
This would be the matchup in the Rose Bowl if they paired below average, middle of the pack teams to represent the Big Ten and the Pac-12. Instead, in week 2, it becomes a marquee game because the rest of the games stink. Martinez will set new shot put records with his horrific throws, but that will be enough to beat the team from LA that we hope embarrasses the other team from LA. New coach at UCLA, but it’s Mora the same.
Nebraska 32 UCLA 16
Georgia at Missouri
I have not made the transition that this is now an SEC game. This seems like a decent, but probably boring non-conference game. Oh wait, I just basically described an SEC game. It’s September and Missouri will be pumped, but as Penn State fans know, that doesn’t always work out.
Georgia 20 Missouri 17
Florida at Texas A&M
Now that Texas A&M is in the SEC, I will be sure to continue my streak of not watching them play. A&M has been very boisterous as they stormed the SEC and now they get Florida and the remains of Urban Meyer’s team when he decided to mail it in as a coach. A&M uses their fans to sneak out a win and the rest of the SEC fans will tell you that Florida isn’t really a TRUE SEC team.
Texas A&M 21 Florida 20
Washington at LSU
If you like Purple, boy are you in for a treat. LSU should be credited for playing a pretty cool out of conference schedule each year. Steve Sarkisian had a Bengal Tiger at practice Tuesday because, well, I have no idea, makes no sense. Washington is getting better but LSU should cover the big spread. Sorry to pick such given, but I am mesmerized by the colors.
LSU 42 Washington 13
Illinois at Arizona State
This game features 2 of the slimiest coaches in the country. In an ideal scenario, Todd Graham will quit at halftime and Tim Beckman will send his assistants to camp out in front of ASU’s locker room to poach their roster. Either way, the Big Ten isn’t good and Graham will take his High Octane offense and beat the second rate Illini.
Arizona State 27 Illinois 16
Wisconsin at Oregon State
Badgers vs. Beavers and expect Wisconsin to struggle again, but this time, it will result in a loss. Late in the game, Bert Bielema will be forced to make a quick decision and since we know that is well beyond his limitations, he will falter and choke this one away.
Oregon State 25 Wisconsin 21
