CFB Picks: Week 1

September 4, 2009

Final Week 1 stats 10-4

Hey Football Fiends!

It’s the MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR once again! College football is back!!!!

I’m instituting a new policy this year. If your FBS team is taking on an FCS team to pad their win record, I am NOT picking that game in my weekly lineup. It is time FBS and especially BCS teams step up to the plate and stop playing “directional schools.”  And yes, I am looking at you #1 ranked Florida. Shame on you for scheduling Charleston Southern. And don’t think you escape scrutiny#2 Texas for scheduling Louisiana-Monroe.

Hell, it would be nice if LSU would play a Pac-10 team with a winning record. Scheduling Washington isn’t much better than scheduling a “directional school.”  Why not play Cal? Oregon? Or, hell, even USC. Why not settle this once and for ALL LSU? FTR, LSU’s last loss to a Pac 10 school was to USC. In 1979. They have not played us since.

Oh and Oregon player LeGerrette Blount should be throw off the team and have all scholarships revoked, IMHO.

So, without further ado, I bring you my Week 1 College Football Picks:

Alabama over VA Tech

USC over San Jose State

UCLA over SDSU

Ohio State over Navy

Oklahoma over BYU

Mizzou over Illinois

Stanford over Wazzou

Cal over Maryland

LSU over Washington

Colorado over Colorado State

Rutgers over Cincy

  1. I go into this season with hope for my poor Fighting Irish. We were ranked for the first time since 2006! The tide must be turning lol.

  3. Jen- ND is ranked purely out of tradition. Much like SC was ranked at start of season during all those bad years


  4. Amy . . . I mean . . . USC plays SJSU. Sagarin has them rated at a cool #109, behind multiple FCS teams, and all of 8 spots ahead of Louisiana-Monroe. Phil Steele has SJSU rated below UL-M, below Kent State, basically even with Army.

    Props on the OSU scheduling, but the ND game has been a joke for years, and there’s a long line of pumpkins in USC’s past too.


    • Oh I agree. I don’t rate the teams USC and Ohio State are playing far behind Florida and Texas. But take on Div 1-A teams BCS Goliaths, you know?

      And the USC-ND game is an annual tradition into infinity for both schools. And USC does try to schedule tough teams in their two openings of non conference. It is not our fault no one wants to play us. Kudos to those that do. That said, Florida and Texas could have done better than Charleston Southern and Louisiana Monroe for Chrissakes. I mean schedule UNLV and Idaho – at least they are Div 1.
