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 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.

Week 4: Colin Cowherd’s Wheel of Genius NCAA Football Picks (updated)

The Herd came back to earth a little bit this week. For Wheel of Genius picks he was 1-2-1 and his throw in Penn State pick hit. On the season The Herd is now 10-4-1, which is still pretty darn good. The Herd just said he was 11-4-2 and we have no idea where that came from. This is why we watch him and his picks because he tends to inflate at times.

He is also 2-0 on his upset special picks with the first win coming Alabama over Clemson and last night with Colorado beating West Virginia.

Here are his picks for Week 4:

LSU (-2) at Auburn – He is picking the upset here and says Auburn will win 17-14. Tuberville is money in big games and has won 6 straight at home versus Top 10 teams and 9 of 12 overall. The Herd does not like unsettled QB situations and that is a strike against both schools and when it hits both schools you go with the home team.

Notre Dame at Michigan State (-9) – He picked this in his pre-season upset special and did acknowledge that it is now not an upset cause State is favored. Says Michigan State is the most underrated team in the country and is incredibly physical. Notre Dame is coming off a huge emotional win and that is trouble. Herd is picking Michigan State to win and cover by the score of 33-20.

Georgia at Arizona State (+7) – Georgia does not travel period, has a questionable O-line and plays 12 freshmen. Arizona State has a great QB and has fixed a lot of their OL trouble from last year. Herd thinks Georgia wins 27-23, which means Arizona State covers.

Florida at Tennessee – He did not give a line here. Says the team that runs better wins this game. Tennessee has never beat Urban Meyer. Last year Florida blew them out and rubbed it in by saying The Vols quit. This year Tennessee is the better rushing team, plays at home and has a chip on their shoulder. The Herd thinks Florida wins 24-23 but Tennessee covers the points.

Week 3: Colin Cowherd’s Wheel of Genius NCAA Football Picks

The Herd is an impressive 9-2 on the season and 1-0 as part of his “Upset Special Picks“.

His picks for Week 3 are:

Wisconsin (-1.5) at Fresno State – He is picking Fresno State to cover and win outright. Says it will be 100 degrees, the Big Ten is terrible travelling west of the Rockies. Score prediction Fresno State 28 – Wisconsin 23.

Oregon (-8.5) at Purdue – Thinks Oregon will win and cover. Says over the last two years Oregon has the best offense in the country when the QB is healthy. Says Oregon should be ranked in the top 10. Oregon has won 11 straight out of conference. Purdue has not beaten a ranked team since 2003. Score prediction is Oregon 41 – Purdue 21.

Ohio State at USC (-12.5) – Says USC will win and cover. Says not to get caught up in the hype of last week’s game. He expects the Buckeyes to do well and for their defensive front 7 to play really well and create problems for USC. USC has won 7 straight against the Big Ten and all were blowouts. Does not like the fact that Pryor took 50% of the snaps in practice. In big games The HErd likes QB stability. A freshman QB and a 70% Beanie Wells does not provide any stability. Predicts a close game and a late 4th quarter cover for USC. Score prediction is USC 27 – Ohio State 13.

Georgia (-7) at South Carolina – Thinks Georgia will win and cover. The HErd likes teams that have stability at QB. Georgia has Stafford and South Carolina has a two headed mess. Georgia has won 9 in a row and he is predicting blowout. Score prediction will be Georgia 32 – South Carolina 17.

A fifth pick but one that he did not put in the Wheel of Genius is Penn State (-27) at Syracuse. Says Penn State will score at will and will be covering by half time and can score 100 points if they want. Penn State wins big and covers.

There you have it!!!

Week 1: Colin Cowherd’s Wheel of Genius NCAA Football Picks

We like to make note of handicappers that seem to be in the know whether or not they are good or bad handicappers. ESPN Radio’s Colin Cowherd always has Vegas insiders on his show and every Friday he puts out his picks of the week known as The Wheel of Genius. A lot of the time he is a blowhard and toots his own horn a little too much. We are going to keep track of him this year. He claims to have never had a losing season and last year we think he inflated his numbers significantly. One thing Colin always does do though is have one or two perfect weekends. His picks are worth throwing in a parlay for when he does hit it big. Here are his picks for week 1:

USC to cover against UVA
Missouri to cover against Illinois
Tennessee to cover against UCLA
Utah to cover against Michigan
Cal to cover against Michigan State
Oregon to cover again Washington

Here are Colin’s picks and yes we will be watching and monitoring him. We are keeping a close eye on you Mr. Cowherd and your picks will be tracked.
