Default College Football Pool

Welcome back, Everyone!

It's time for our annual football pool. I'll try to run it as well as Bobby did in previous years -- and now that I have a normal Monday-Friday job, things should run smoothly.

To keep things uniform, we'll do only Saturday games, so have your picks in by Friday nights.

So let's get to the games!

NOTRE DAME vs Nevada
OKLAHOMA STATE vs Georgia
ILLINOIS vs Missouri
ALABAMA vs Virginia Tech
Lsu vs WASHINGTON
MICHIGAN vs Western Michigan
WAKE FOREST vs Baylor
UAB vs Rice
Connecticut vs OHIO
UCLA vs San Diego State

(Home teams in CAPS)

Hi again, Everyone!

Well, as expected, things got shook up quite a bit in the Top 25. I guess the Pre-Season rankings aren't always the most accurate........

This weekend we have a huge game -- USC and Ohio State! Unfortunately for me, I don't have cable, and won't be able to watch the game on ESPN. I guess I'll watch in on my computer.

Let's get to the games!

Iowa vs IOWA STATE
WISCONSIN vs Fresno State
Usc vs OHIO STATE
GEORGIA vs South Carolina
TENNESSEE vs Ucla
OREGON vs Purdue
Notre Dame vs MICHIGAN
NAVY vs Louisiana Tech
Hawaii vs WASHINGTON STATE
MINNESOTA vs Air Force

Well, another exciting week of College Football!

How about them Trojans, coming back against the Buckeyes at the Horseshoe?! Pretty good for a freshman quarterback!

And on the other side of the coin -- it's time for Charlie Weiss to go at Notre Dame. Should have beaten the Wolverines, and couldn't get it done.

Oh well, that's why college football is so exciting!

Here's how everyone did this week:

Will: 4 wins, 4 wins to date

Momma: 6 wins, 14 wins to date

Bob: 7 wins, 14 wins to date

Dean: 7 wins, 16 wins to date.

This week's picks tomorrow (Tuesday)

See ya then!

Hi again, Everyone!

Well, another very exciting weekend of college football!!

Can you believe USC lost to Washington??! And yet they seem to lose one of these games every year. I have no explanation for it......

Just some shocking upsets this year!

Anyway, here's how everyone did this week:

Bob: 4 wins -- 18 wins for the year

Momma: 4 wins -- 18 wins for the year

Will: 7 wins (winner of this week) -- 11 wins for the year.

Dean: 6 wins -- 22 wins for the year.

Can't wait for this week's games!

Well, no real marquee matchups this week; looks like we're settling down into conference play.

But I gotta say I love those huge non-conference games, especially early in the season! Really gets the blood pumping!

On to this week's games:

Wake Forest vs BOSTON COLLEGE
NORTHWESTERN vs Minnesota
WISCONSIN vs Michigan State
California vs OREGON
GEORGIA TECH vs North Carolina
NC STATE vs Pittsburgh
Miami (FL) vs VIRGINIA TECH
Notre Dame vs PURDUE
HOUSTON vs Texas Tech
Arizona vs OREGON STATE

Good luck, Everyone!

Welcome Pocono Pug!

I considered adding the Penn State/Iowa game, but didn't for several reasons:

First, Penn State is the #5 team in the nation, and Iowa isn't even ranked

Second, the Lions are at home at Beaver Stadium

Third, Penn State is 9 1/2 point favorites (as of today, 25 September 2009).

Everyone playing in the pool would pick Penn State to win, and thus everyone would win that particular game in the pool.

I try to pick the biggest games, with the smallest point spreads, because anything can happen in these games, and that way, some people will win the game, and some will lose it. That way, depending on how people pick, they'll win or lose depending on their skill and luck, which makes it a much more exciting pool!

Good Lord, what a wild weekend of college football!!

I mean, 5 of the top-10 teams went down! Especially shocking were Oregon's dismantling of Cal, and Penn State losing to Iowa in the Whiteout.

All I can say is -- WOW.........!

So, here's how everyone did:

Bob: 7 wins (Winner of the week!), 25 wins to date

Momma: 6 wins, 24 wins to date

Will: 6 wins, 17 wins to date

Pug: 6 wins, 6 wins to date

Dean: 5 wins, 27 wins to date

Can't wait for next week!

Well, should be another fun weekend of college football! I don't think you can get any wilder than last weekend, though......

The big game this week is the Oklahoma/Miami game. Bradford should be back for the Sooners, and Miami has been playing very well (except for last weekend, of course.)

On to the games:

MINNESOTA vs Wisconsin
NC State vs WAKE FOREST
Florida State vs BOSTON COLLEGE
NOTRE DAME vs Washington
GEORGIA vs Lsu
Oklahoma vs MIAMI (FL)
Penn State vs ILLINOIS
IOWA STATE vs Kanas State
Usc vs CALIFORNIA
TENNESSEE vs Auburn
