College Football: RIP UGA VII

November 19, 2009

Football Fiends,

It is with a heavy heart that I pass on the news that the adorable 4 year old bulldog mascot for the University of Georgia UGA VII has died today. His handsome wrinkley face has been a fixture at the school for more than a year. He died early Thursday of heart-related causes in Savannah, Georgia, according to its owner, Frank “Sonny” Seiler.

My heart goes out, once again, to the Bulldog Nation on this very sad day. My dear sweet Sally Bananas passed away in September, so I know how it feels.  He will be buried in a vault at Sanford Stadium with Ugas I-VI.  I am heartbroken, y’all.

UGA’s I thru VI will be in heaven to welcome UGA VII with open paws.

Week 3 Final: 14-2

Week 2 Final: 11 – 4

Week 1 Final: 10 – 4

Hey Football Fiends-

It’s that time of the week again and this Trojan alum finds herself in a familiar place. Unsure of which USC football team is going to show up to play Saturday night in the Coliseum. USC is a 46.5 favorite over Washington State and as past years have shown – this isn’t a great place to be in. That said, Matt Barkely is starting and USC will win the game. I just don’t think our offense has gelled enough to beat that point spread.

College Football Picks: Week 3

September 18, 2009

Week 3 Final: 14-2

Week 2 Final: 11 – 4

Week 1 Final: 10 – 4

Hey Football Fiends –

Here are my CFB picks for week 3.  I don’t expect USC to even miss a beat with Aaron Corp in at QB in place of the aaron-corp-pictures-2injured Matt Barkley. Corp is a mobile QB and it will be great to see how our offense operates with him under center.

I’d love to see Florida and Texas lose of course. Texas, especially. (old grudges die hard and all). I just don’t think it’s going to happen. The game I am least confident about is Oregon-Utah. Oregon barely squeaked out a win last week vs Purdue and, of course, lost to Boise State in the season opener. Utah, on the other hand needed until the 4th quarter to pull ahead of San Jose State and win.  I’m going with Oregon because all things considered, they’ve played better teams so far this season and will be more prepared for what Utah will bring than Utah’s competition thus far has prepared them for the Ducks at Autzen Stadium.

Boise State over Fresno State

Mississippi State over Vandy

Oregon over Utah

USC over Washington $^%^*$()*$^#%@%%@ Corp was AWFUL. The D needs Taylor Mays. More thoughts later, MAYBE. I need to go punch something first.

UCLA over Kansas State

VA Tech over Nebraska

Notre Dame over Michigan State

Florida over Tennessee

Cal over Minnesota

UCF over Buffalo

Oklahoma over Tulsa

Kentucky over Lousiville

BYU over FSU

Georgia over Arkansas

Texas over Texas Tech

Stanford over SJSU
