Maaco Car Care Bowl Pick

Post by William

Missed on the pick last night. TCU won by 7 for those of you who didn't watch.

BOISE ST minus 14.5 vs Arizona State. Kellen Moore's last game in college(probably last game EVER as a player). He will light it up.

For those not interested in watching this game I'm sure there's something on Lifetime or Bravo.

Something is seriously wrong.

Four high school kids in New York were suspended for Tebowing. I wonder if they would have been suspended for praying to Allah or wearing their pants around their ankles?

Kids suspended for Tebowing!

Big game for the Falcons tonight

Post by William

Big game in the Dome tonight for the Falcons. Jacksonville comes to town off a blowout win over Tampa Bay last week. This is a must win for the Falcons. They are 2 games behind NOLA in the NFC South with 3 to go, 1 against NOLA next Monday night. Chances are the Falcons can't win the division.

Right now they have the 5th seed in the NFC, meaning they would play the Division winner with the worst record. That's going to be either the Giants or the Cowboys. Falcons can handle either of those 2. Then they would get #2 seed, probably NOLA in the Superdome. Drew Brees and his offense is scary. Anything can happen in the playoffs.

Atlanta minus 11 tonight. I'll take the Falcons and give the points. Big night for the Falcons defense against Blaine Gabbert. Big night for Julio.

8:20 on NFL Network. They have a really good pregame show at 6. Brad Nessler will do the play by play. He's the best. Notice tonight that NFL Network will have either a QB or a center miked up. Great audio.

T Boone fires a waring shot at the BCS

Post by Mike
Today should be very interesting as Bama and OSU lobby for their chance at LSU. Supper OSU booster T Boone Pickens has already fired one warning shot across the bow.

From ESPN.com:
"If we don't get in the BCS, I'm not kidding you, if I have the power to do it, I'm going to have an investigation," Pickens, 83, said with a chuckle. "After the way we handled OU tonight, somehow, I can't imagine LSU playing Alabama twice. It doesn't make sense. It looks like it's an SEC closed system if that happens, and Alabama didn't even win the conference. Here we are. I think we are the ones who will play LSU, and for all the right reasons."

Week 14 Picks (and other stuff)

Post by William

Well, we've made it through another season. Seen some really good football. Had alot of fun. Anybody besides me think Dogs would be 10-2 after 0-2 start? Just a few things before the last full week of picks.....

#1   Good luck to Albany native Josh Broadaway. He is in the final stage of qualifying school for the PGA TOUR. 6 rounds, 3rd round today. Josh is T21 going into today. Top 25 get cards to play on PGA Tour next year.

#2   The state of college basketball in Georgia is awful. I know it's early in the season but both UGA and GA Tech are unwatchable at this point. True freshman Caldwell-Pope for UGA will be really good, but other than that it's going to be a really long year.

#3   I think this would be fun to do

#4   Dabo and The Old Ball Coach in a peeing contest.

http://www.tigernet.com/view/story.do?id=10193

Turns out it wasn't Spurrier who said it, it was the Carolina radio guy. Hilarious.

#5   Bowl game I'd really like to see(assuming UGA doesn't boatrace LSU and gets into the Sugar Bowl)....... Oklahoma/UGA in the Cotton Bowl Jan 6 8pm on Fox. ASSUMING that UGA doesn't boatrace LSU tomorrow(!!!!), this would be a fantastic game. UGA could get into Texas to recruit for a week w/Texas A&M coming next year. Only bowl game that day. 2 brand names in college football. HOWEVER, pretty tough for it to happen. UGA has to lose tomorrow, Oklahoma loses to Ok St(doable), and Kansas State has to lose at home to Iowa St(not bloody likely). I'd much rather UGA play in that game than at 11am or 1pm on Jan 2nd.

On to the picks.....6-4 last week, 79-53-3 for the year. 58.5%. Picks in ALL CAPS

OREGON(Home) minus 31.5 vs Ucla      Double Gold Star Lock of the year. 5 Stars. Gold Nugget pick. Whatever else the 1-800 guys with eyepatches call it.

KANSAS ST(Home) minus 11 Iowa St  

VA TECH minus 7 vs Clemson in Charlotte     Clemson started 8-0, finished 1-3. Same ole Clemson.
BTW... good job to the ACC for selling out the Championship game. I think that's the first time. Much better than the Big 10. Paying people to be seat fillers so it will look good on TV.

Wisconsin minus 9.5 vs MICHIGAN ST in Indianapolis

Oklahoma St(Home) minus 3.5 vs OKLAHOMA    Could be a snow game. Slows down that OSU crazy offense.

Lsu minus 13.5 vs UGA in Georgia Dome       Not saying UGA is going to win but I do think they can cover. Dogs cannot give up non-offensive tds. Somebody for UGA has to run the ball. Offensive/defensive lines have to play best game of the year. Dogs need 2-3 big plays(blocked punt, td return, sack scoop and score). Gonna be tough but can be done.

ATLANTA minus 2.5 vs Houston(Home)    Falcons 8-0 under Mike Smith vs rookie QBs. Houston is starting 3rd string TJ Yates from UNC. Big game for Falcons to keep up with NOLA.

Please check post below from Mike.

Have a great safe weekend.

  

There is more on the line than it appears, for Georgia anyway.

Post by Mike
Demand for SEC Championship tickets is soft. The price on Ebay plummeted from Monday through Thursday, and there are still plenty of tickets available now. Maybe because it appears the game has no real meaning. LSU is going to the title game win or lose. The best Georgia can do with a win is secure a Sugar Bowl bid to play Houston. So it may appear there is not big consequence on the outcome, but not for Georgia.

Obviously, the Dawgs face an uphill battle since the running game is limited. LSU is very deep at DB and can play back away from the line of scrimmage without worrying about UGA's rushing attack. If UGA is going to keep it close Murray will have to send the wide outs deep, but look for the Orson Charles on short underneath routes. Like he did against Tech.

Consider this though, if UGA can keep the game close, or by some chance win, then play a great bowl game, the preseason polls and recruiting season could be interesting. The Dawgs only lose four offensive starters, and (assuming Jarvis Jones and Bacari Rambo bypass the NFL) only two defensive starters.

If the season ends on a positive note the Dawgs could be preseason top five. Of course a blowout at the hands of LSU and/or a lackluster bowl performance like we had last season, and Richt will be right back where he was before this season started.

The Eagles are a joke!

Wow... The Philadelphia Eagles are a disaster. Even though he is not taking the snaps, Vick will have to be considered a cancer, and Young may be done as an NFL QB.

Genius?

In Bobby Valentine's introduction to the Boston media, he said "I know I've been called a genius". Really? Not by Don Sutton who constantly pointed out management mistakes when Valentine was skipper of the Mets.

I actually met Valentine a few years ago at a Braves spring training game. My daughter and I were at the concession stand buying lunch and he came up next to us at the condiment counter. I introduced my daughter to him and he was a nice guy and very pleasant, but not for one second did the thought "this guy is a genius" enter my head.
