Week 6 2008: Colin Cowherd’s Wheel of Genius NCAA Football Picks

Colin had another tough week last week going 2-3. He is now 13-10-1 on the season. He also got the Ohio State game wrong last week. Not gonna bust on him this week and we will see what he says his record actually is. We are keeping track though so we know what is up and can keep our readers informed of any shenanigans. He just gave his picks and did not even say what his record was. Pretty funny stuff and he made fun of himself. Here are his Wheel of Genius picks:

Oregon at USC Trojans (-16) – Oregon won last year and USC certainly remembers the game. USC has won 25 straight night games at home and Pete Carroll will have his team ready to play. They lost last week and know they need to dominate to get back to a BCS title game. Oregon is playing without Justin Roper and will be playing a young QB. The Herd hates young QBs on the road. USC wins 44-24.

Florida State at Miami (minus a couple) – This is FSU’s first road game and they are playing with a young QB. Herd hates young QBs on the road. Miami has a great run defense and will force FSU to pass and force FSU’s young QB to pass and into mistakes. Miami wins 24-13.

Kentucky at Alabama (-16.5) – The HErd actually thinks this line should be higher. Kentucky is 0-19-1 against the Tide in Alabama. The Tide stunk in the second half of Georgia and Saban will be in their ears all week to play hard for a complete game and then they can rest next week on their bye. Kentucky has a young QB and will be playing on the road. Alabama wins 37-13.

UCONN at UNC (-7) – UCONN RB is great but their starting QB is hurt and out for 6 weeks. Young QB on the road getting his first start in a night game. Score should be low but UNC covers and wins 28-17.

Ohio State (-1) at Wisconsin – This is The Herd’s pick of the year so far. Wisconsin is in the middle of a brutal 3 game stretch. Wisconsin’s passing offense is 80th in the nation and Ohio State still has the 12th rated defense even with the USC washout. Ohio State D does not struggle against immobile QBs. Ohio State dominates and wins 27-17.

  1. Gotta love the Herd. He was just talking about a speaking engagement he had last night with a bunch of financial planners. He gave them his rules of life to get by during this tough economic time….

    Rule 1: Don’t do Meth!!!
    Rule 2: Prepare like heck and let it rip!!!

    I have to agree and I will add my own rule…

    Rule 3: Always take time to appreciate a great ass and rack because life is too short not to.

  2. Well The Herd just ended his show with a BS tidbit. He now says he got Penn State at -14 last week so he pushed instead of lost that game. His producer Amanda backed him on that. This is a bunch of crap because he flat out said -16 on his pick and predicted a score of Penn State 36-14. Have to call it like I see it and facts are facts. C’mon Herd…..I am watching you.

  3. Heard the end of the show…he was stating that with Penn St push he went 2-2-1 last week and that although he went 500 he has been KILLING overall. You got him at 13-10 which isn’t killing… Also he has Miami -2 officially after the chick producer got on his case about not giving exact lines.

  5. Sometimes I think he is more entertainer than serious sports analyst. He is a worker and knows how to get people fired up. I do like him though as an entertainer and especially like the college football reporting he does.

  7. I got the Penn St line at 14 and bought it down to 13.5. So i squeeked out a win. You guys gotta buy half points when the lines are either exact or within a half point of 7,10,14,21 and 28. If it saves/makes you money 1 outta 10 times you buy the half point, you come out ahead. Its even more important if your bookie lets you buy it for half time lines.

  9. The Herd returned to the positive side and was 3-2 on the weekend. He is now 16-12-1. Not too shabby. Interesting how his young QB theory was 2-2 and he lined up with me on the Ohio St. game. I think he made great points and was surprised it did not work out. Nice work Colin!
