NFL Week 18 Picks – Who Ya Got?

I must give props to the NFL scheduling department. Today is the first Saturday with no college football since August. So they moved 2 games to today so us football addicts could delay our withdrawal symptoms until early February. I’m not even going to bother...

NFL Week 17 Picks – Who Ya Got?

The first week of January can seem like a true bummer. The holiday season is behind us, most of us have to return to work after a long break, and the weather can go haywire. (Here in Charlotte, it’s been above 70 for about 10 days, but starting on January 3, real...

College bowl games 12/31/2021 – 01/07/2022 – Who Ya Got?

Canceled bowls everywhere. The Holiday Bowl was canceled almost at kickoff time. The Fenway Bowl was canceled (who wanted to see a football game in Fenway Park anyway?). The Arizona Bowl, another useless football-in-a-baseball-stadium-just-for-the-fun-of-it game, had...

College Bowl Games 12/24-12/30 – Who Ya Got?

COVID, COVID, and more COVID. Texas A&M had to pull out of its bowl, prompting the playoff committee to establish protocols in case the big games are affected. If one of the top 4 can’t play, the opponent wins by forfeit. If both teams in one matchup can’t play,...

NFL Week 16 Picks – Who Ya Got?

I was going to rant about the bye schedule last week, but Urban Meyer was more pressing, as was COVID. What I was going to say was… The NFL needs to fix this. There should be 4 teams on bye each week from week 4 through week 11, preferably all teams in 1 division each...

College Bowl Games 12/17-12/23 – Who Ya Got?

This season has been very goofy, both in game results and all the coaching changes during the season. Some of the transitions were smooth and classy (Billy Napier), and some were punk moves (Brian Kelly). We finally have a playoff team that’s not from one of the 5...

NFL Week 15 Picks – Who Ya Got?

Word surfaced this week that Urban Meyer kicked his kicker during warmups in training camp. The Jags could finally take no more and sent him packing. The only way he learns his lesson is if no one hires him for at least 2 years. With all the current college jobs...

NFL Week 14 Picks – Who Ya Got?

NASCAR has “silly season,” a period in late summer/early fall where rumors run rampant about drivers and crew chiefs changing teams, many of which are outlandish and have no chance of happening. While it doesn’t have an official nickname, December is the NFL...

College Football Week 14 (championships) – Who Ya Got?

It’s time for conference title games. Games appear in the order of kickoff times, except the SEC is the last one (headliner always goes last). Here we go… Conference USA Western Kentucky at UT-San Antonio – UTSA got into the top 20 and was poised to crash...

NFL Week 13 Picks – Who Ya Got?

I’m late with the post. No time to waste. Dallas at New Orleans – New Orleans is on it’s 47th QB. Dallas has looked horrible against the AFC West, but fine against everyone else. So this should be good for them. Cowboys 27, Aints 10 Arizona at Chicago – Nagy has not...
