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.

Week 6 NCAA Free Football Picks (10/4/2008): Redemption – The Backwoods Southern Lawyer Picks SEC Winners

Well the Backwoods Southern Lawyer wilted under the pressure last week posting a 1-3 record. He sent me the following email and is back for another week…..

An off weekend brought yours truly dangerously close to .500 for September. The philosophical question for college football fans after last week is whether Ole Miss’ upset of Florida shows that the SEC is strong top to bottom or just weak at the top….. and while you ponder that, chew on these picks for this week:

Take FLORIDA (minus 24) at ARKANSAS. After last weekend’s setback against Ole Miss, Tim Tebow gave a teary-eyed apology to the Gator Nation and swore: “But I promise you one thing: a lot of good will come out of this. You have never seen any player in the entire country play as hard as I will play the rest of this season, and you’ll never see someone push the rest of the team as hard as I will push everybody the rest of this season. And you’ll never see a team play harder than we will the rest of this season. God bless.” I, for one, believe him. Even though Florida is banged up and Arkansas is due to show up sometime (and I am loathe to give away 24 in any SEC match-up), I just have a feeling that Florida will take out their frustrations on the hapless Razorbacks and roll to a 5 TD victory.

Take OLE MISS (minus 2.5) vs. SOUTH CAROLINA. I usually look for teams to bounce after emotional wins like the one Ole Miss had over Florida last week, but I think this is a tale of two teams going in opposite directions. Ole Miss is a couple of plays away from being 5-0 right now. They’ve been re-energized by their new coach and the team and fan base is starting to believe (especially after last week). South Carolina is starting to wonder whether Spurrier is what they thought he was when they hired him, and the switch to Andy Garcia, while necessary, may cause some growing pains. I look for Ole Miss to win by 9+ points.

Take KENTUCKY (plus 15.5) at ALABAMA. The vogue pick this weekend is to take Alabama because Kentucky hasn’t played anyone, ‘Bama is the hottest team in the country and Saban is better than Bear Bryant, Vince Lombardi and Jesus put together. However, I’m here to tell you my friends that Kentucky is a quality club. They beat Western Kentucky worse than Alabama did, and Alabama threw in a stinker after their big game with Clemson, just like they might do this week after their big win in Athens. I think Kentucky battles valiantly and keeps it within 2 TDs.

TAKE AUBURN (minus 4) at VANDERBILT. Yes, Vandy is 4-0 and Auburn is 1-4 ATS this year, but the fact remains that one team is Vanderbilt and the other is Auburn. Order will be restored in the SEC this weekend, and Vandy will realize that any school with incoming freshmen averaging 1,400 points on their SAT scores has no business atop the SEC East. Besides, Vandy’s strength is in its running game, which Auburn will stuff. Auburn’s offense is due for a break out game and will find a way to put at least three scores on the board. I like Auburn by 10.

That’s the night the lights went out in Georgia
That’s the night that they hung an innocent man
Don’t trust your soul to no back woods Southern lawyer
Cause the judge in the town’s got bloodstains on his hand

Bonjour Mes Amis,

Backwoods Southern Lawyer

Week 5 2008: Colin Cowherd’s Wheel of Genius NCAA Football Picks

Colin went 1-3 last week and is now 11-7-1 on the season. we mean no disrespect to The Herd, we know he is capable of some awesome weeks and we also know he is capable of lying about his results. He said he was 11-4-2 last week when he was really 10-4-1. We intentionally list all of his picks so you can see for yourself.

The Herd’s Wheel of Genius picks of the week are:

TCU (+18) at Oklahoma – TCU won 5 of last 6 vs. Big 12 and is 11-2 in their last 13 versus BCS schools. TCU D is a beast and is ranked #1. Oklahoma wins but TCU will play very hard. Score prediction Oklahoma 28 – TCU 17

Miss St. at LSU (-23.5) – There is one thing that is certain and that is LUS blows out Miss. St. Every year. Score prediction is LSU 30 and Miss. St. 0

Alabama at Georgia (-7) – Georgia is wearing black but that could work against them. Georgia also has the best QB between the two teams. Bama has two advantages. 1) They are 4-0 with 4 easy wins so they did not reveal their playbook and 2) they are 9-9 on 3rd down conversions of two yards or less. Saban never loses by 7 points or more. Score prediction is Georgia 23 – Alabama 20

Purdue at Notre Dame (-1) – Notre Dame faced no crime in losing at Michigan State. Young offense plays different home versus away. Purdue really means Purdon’t in big games. Score prediction is Notre Dame 28 – Purdue 20.

Illinois at Penn State (-16) – Illinois has a bad defense and really bad pass D. This is a revenge game for Penn State. Penn State starts fast and this will make Illinois get down and the game will get out of control. Penn State wins 36-14.

This is not a Wheel of Genius pick but he threw it in as another game. Said Ohio State will destroy Minnesota.
