These are just being posted, but I predicted them before the games started. Promise.

Tennessee at ‘Bama – One of the great unintended consequences of the expansion to 16 teams is that this game occurring every year on the 3rd or 4th week of October is probably going away. Which is good because it hasn’t been competitive since the 20th century. That’s not changing this year. At all. The Evil Empire 49, Rocky Bottom 14

Ar-Kansas-Pine Bluff at Ar-Kansas – The shine has worn off the Swine. They’re still a good team, much better than they have been in some time. And now they get a paycheck game to heal some wounds. Pigs 41, APB 7

LSU at Misipi – I think I’ll call Kiffin the brat coach going forward. He acts like a spoiled brat kid and watching him lose is a lot of fun. As for LSU, Coach O is leaving at the end of the year as the team has become inconsistent and, according to reports, his home has become a sex trafficking hub. Just goes to show that you can take an ugly dude, give him an 8-figure net worth, and all of a sudden, every available chick in the swamps wants to be with him. After a big win last week, his squad won’t have the consistency to keep up offensively. Misipi 38, LSU 21

South Carolina at Texas A&M – After barely squeaking by Vandy, SC has to go where The 12th Man is, and it’s not going to end well. A&M 38, Fightin’ Chickens 17

Misipi St at Vanderbilt – “How many different ways can Vandy lose a game,” wondered the play-by-play announcer last week after Vandy gagged on a lead they had held for 59 minutes and 30 seconds. This week and next week are the best chances they have to get a conference win, given the wild inconsistency of their opponents. It will be close, but probably not close enough. Jerry Clower U 23, Vandy 17

BYE WEEK at Auburn – It appears that Auburn is settling into the role as best non-‘Bama / UGA team in the SEC. There is a reasonable chance that they win the rest of their games up to the Iron Bowl, which will be the “crashing back to earth” game. For now, only concentrate on whipping the brat coach next week. Let’s hope he rolls in with another smart*** popcorn prediction. WAR EAGLE 0, BYE WEEK 0

Florida Atlantic at Charlotte – Bye week seems like it lasts forever when you’re on a roll, as the 49ers are. This matchup typically is a track meet, which is fine by me. I think we have the weapons to make it happen. 49ers 31, FAU 28

Last week’s record: 6-1

Season: 57-18

Other Byes: Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri

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 the NY6...

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...

Let’s Talk About Rittenhouse

Let’s go ahead and address the Rittenhouse trial. I don’t think most people have enough information to reach the conclusions they have reached. For one, most don’t have the correct context. When George Floyd was killed in Minnesota, the movement called Black Lives...

College Football Week 13 Picks – Who Ya Got?

Those of us who love college football have a big letdown every year. Teams play 12 games in 13 weeks. That is a total of 3 months. Yes, conference title and bowl games cover another 5 weeks or so, but week 13 is the last week of a full schedule of games. Then, after...

NFL Week 12 Picks – Who Ya Got?

Another Thanksgiving Day is upon us, bringing with it abundant amounts of food as well as football. We have a muted but traditional meal happening in my home, since it’s just 2 of us. There will be turkey sandwiches consumed throughout the weekend though. There are a...

You’re Not Guaranteed to Die

As of this writing, we are in week 1,000 of the COVID-19 pandemic. OK, it’s really been 20 months, but seems MUCH longer. You know how every January, or birthday, or anniversary of any type, you always think “Time is flying by!” I disagree with that for 2020 and 2021....

College Football Week 12 Picks – Who Ya Got?

It’s Week Before We Play Our Most Hated Rival Week. A few conference matchups, but lots of paycheck games to give teams a chance to rest their starters after building a 100-point halftime lead and give little brother enough money to fund his athletic department for...

NFL Week 11 Picks – Who Ya Got?

I follow these guys who have a YouTube channel. They are cousins and huge Browns fans. They have the Madden video game and run simulated games on their YT channel each week. They always do the Browns game and do a “game of the week” for the AFC and NFC. Their NFC game...

College Football Week 11 Picks – Who Ya Got?

I have consistently said that time has practically stood still during the COVID plague. But every year, the college football season seems to be over about 15 minutes after it starts. I watch with rolled eyes as the playoff committee dismisses Cincinnati because their...
