College Football Picks
September 2, 2010 by staff
College Football Picks, The shining record aside, I’ve done in big games. Some of my key picks a year ago included Florida at LSU, Arkansas, Auburn, South Carolina at Clemson, Ole Miss at LSU, Georgia, Auburn, Tennessee and Georgia over Georgia in South Carolina.
And, oh yes, I stuck Alabama over Florida in the championship game of the SEC and Alabama the state of Texas in the BCS National Championship Game.
But like coach Nick Saban said, there is one thing I did last year that I can help this year. Each season stands on its own, and I have to prove myself again.
Unlike coach Saban, however, I will be more results-oriented process-oriented.
I like to brag too much when I get on a roll.
Here are my Week 1 notes:
South Carolina 27, Southern Miss 10: The Golden Eagles take the Gameccks at a good time with all the things swirling off the field. Southern Miss also has enough talent to make this a game of the fourth quarter of South Carolina, if not jump with speed and strength of the Golden Eagles to catch up. Some players may be missing for the Gameccks, but his focus and energy will not be. One of his young boys – Alshon Jeffery, Stephon Gilmore or Marcus Lattimore – break open in the second half with a big play.
LSU 24, North Carolina 13: The wait is to see if the Tar Heels will play with his team “B”. If so, the Tigers do not feel sorry for them. This game is too important to the club Les Miles, and would not matter if Michael Jordan was presented in baby blue. Oops, wrong sport.
Kentucky 28, Louisville 24: It’s billed as the Governor’s Cup, and Kentucky has won the last three. The Wildcats already seem to be winning most of the recruiting battles in the state under Joker Phillips. Winning these game only make things easier.
Vanderbilt 21, Northwestern 17: The battle of the heavyweights academic has the opportunity to be one of the best games of the weekend. Northwestern force is to spread out and throwing the ball. Vanderbilt strength is defending the pass. The edge goes to the defense of Bryant Jamie Vanderbilt.
Mississippi State 34, Memphis 14: Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen is pretty well locked up last week or so. The information has been difficult to find on your Bulldogs, and he likes it that way. He also likes the way this team has progressed. The Tigers will have a view about how much they have progressed the Bulldogs on Saturday in Starkville.
Alabama 42, San Jose State 6: Who gets more carries in it: Trent Richardson, Eddie Lacy or back one? The only other drama is the number of true freshmen to play with Red Tide, which breaks at the newly expanded Bryant-Denny Stadium.
Georgia 38, Louisiana-Lafayette 13: For a guy who has never played, it sure seems that we have been talking about Georgia redshirt freshman quarterback Aaron Murray for a while. Georgia fans are eager to see him, but also want to see what this new image of the 3-4 defense is first coordinator Todd Grantham years.
Florida 45, Miami (Ohio) 3: Boy, Does this game have one of those name – score feel to it. Moreover, when was the last time the Gators have played a first game was not one of those feel? They scored 62 last season against Charleston Southern and 56 against Hawaii last year.
Ole Miss 24, Jacksonville State 7: The rebels were already going to lean hard on their defense this season. Now it appears the quarterback Jeremiah Masoli will not be eligible, they will rely more on the boys Tyrone Nix. Is a good group to lean on?
Auburn 48, Arkansas State 13: Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn wants to play even faster, and he thinks he has the personnel to do this season. Not be long before quarterback Cameron Newton himself affection of the people in the plains with their ability, both running and passing.
Tennessee 34, Tennessee-Martin 10: Not since the first season of John Majors’ in 1977 expectations were so low for a football team of Tennessee. The Vols are young and inexperienced and have a brutal schedule. Derek Dooley, however, likes the young talent in the program, and most of those guys on the right are shown from the beginning.
Arkansas 45, Tennessee Tech 14: Do not tell Arkansas defensive coordinator Willy Robinson that this is a game-ready. The truth is that all coaches wince to hear that. We heard about the Hogs improved on defense all preseason. We got to see for ourselves on Saturday.
