It’s only ‘Part 1’ because I am not yet ready to make my NFL picks for this week (they will be coming on Saturday, maybe Sunday morning) and because I need to make my NCAA picks for this week being that the week starts tomorrow!
Last Week, 2-2
That was a little long-winded, so without further adieu, my NCAA week 3 picks…
California (-2.5) over Nevada, 9/17 @10pm
I know both teams have completely demolished their first two opponents, but Cal and QB Kevin Riley have looked ridiculous.
East Carolina (+19.5) over Virginia Tech, 9/18 @1:30pm
I don’t expect East Carolina to win, but Tech has had a very rough first 2 weeks of the season and after losing to FCS (formerly Div I-AA) school James Madison last week I have no faith that they can cover an, almost, 20 point spread.
Now they will go ahead and win by 30, you watch.
Hawaii (+10.5) over Colorado, 9/18 @3:30pm
I have a lot of faith in Hawaii to keep this game inside of 10 points.
Boise State (-23.5) over Wyoming, 9/18 @8pm
Normally I would make a joke about Wyoming, but Boise State is in Idaho so the joke is moot. Either way, I like Boise State to completely destroy the Cowboys.
I realize that this headline could be taken in so many ways and if you took it in the wrong way…well you’ve got one dirty ass mind! I mean this blog is “Don’t Kid Yourself (sports edition)”!!
Anyway, I was just looking around the world-wide web and came across this article on ESPN.com about former USC quarterback Pat Haden replacing Mike Garrett as the Trojans athletic director. Also in this article was the mentioning of USC voluntarily returning Reggie Bush’s Heisman Trophy award.
My opinion? Great move. An unprecedented move, but a great move nonetheless.
Moving on, this article made me think about how Pete Carroll happened to leave to be the head coach of the Seattle Seahawks at just the moment it seemed like the NCAA was going to drop the hammer on the Trojans.
Coincidence? Coach Carroll says so. Read the rest of this entry »
