Merry Christmas to one and all!

December 24, 2009

Hey Football Fiends!

I’ve been enjoying a little extended Holiday Break here on Gridiron Goddess. Licking my wounds, so to speak and hoping for better things for my beloved USC Trojans next year!

Tomorrow, I’ll be watching my San Diego Chargers kick Vince Young and the Titans asses. What a good Christmas present that will be. I always enjoy seeing Young go down. Call it a four-year hangover from the 2006 Rose Bowl, whatever.

I’ll also be watching USC’s men’s basketball team take on my hometown UNLV Runnin’ Rebels in the Championship Game of the tournament going on in Hawaii this week.

Then of course on Saturday, USC vs Boston College in the Emerald Bowl. Friends, I don’t even want to hazard to make a guess on the final outcome there. I watched Oregon State implode vs BYU live at the LV Bowl on Tuesday. Cal’s performance against Utah in the Poinsettia Bowl on Wednesday left a lot to be desired. For it being such an up year for the Pac-10 with one of the most exciting conference races in the country, we’re sure not showing our strength so far in Bowl games.

I’m not even going to get into the Joe McKnight crap right now. Or the three Trojans declared academically ineligible for the Emerald Bowl. It makes my head hurt to think about it. Have we not suffered enough this season?

Perhaps Santa can bring my Trojans a much needed season ending victory on Saturday? Maybe if I leave Santa and extra special treat tonight?

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Football Fiends!

CFB Picks week 9

October 23, 2008

Week 9?!!! How’d it get to be weeek NINE already, Football Fiends? WOW.

You know the drill. 16 games. 32 teams. 16 winners. 16 losers.

Here are my College Football Picks for Week 9:

Auburn over WVU

Boise State over San Jose State

Illinois over Wisconsin

Texas A&M over Iowa State

Florida over Kentucky

Ole Miss over Arkansas


Vandy over Duke

Cal over UCLA

USC over Arizona (now we all know this is exactly the type of game in which my Trojans have a tendency to stumble. Only they won’t. USC by 3 tds, y’all)

Bama over Tennessee

Oklahoma over Kansas State

South Florida over Louisville

Nebraska over Baylor

Mizzou over Colorado

Ohio State over Penn State

ETA: I’ve been asked “What about Texas-Oklahoma State?” I pondered this and left it off for a reason. I think Oklahoma State will win it. And am not sure if it is because I am Hater or because I truly feel OK St has a shot.
