College Picks Week 6 (22-19-1 vs the spread for the season):
Texas +3.5 vs Oklahoma: A Texas win opens up the last spot in the Playoff. I should probably pick Oklahoma, this looks like the week Cutty Sark's idiotic decision to dump Hudson Card after 1 1/2 games for the less talented Casey Thompson will come back to bite him in the ass. . .but. . .Lincoln Riley is a lousy coach, and Cutty will coach rings around him and find some way to beat Alex Grinch's defense. I'll bet against them next week against Oklahoma State. Texas.
Arkansas +6 @ Mississippi: The Hangover Bowl. Both teams got hammered by the Big Boys (the Menstrual Tide and Georgia) last week. Lane Kiffen seems more like the type to pout all week than Sam Pittman, so I'll take: Arkansas.
Georgia -14.5 @ Auburn: It's hard to get a good read on Auburn. They've played a weird mix of teams, Penn State, LSU, Georgia State, with varying results. If Georgia has to play the comical Stetson Bennett at QB, I suppose Auburn's defense could hold up enough to gain a 14 point loss, after all their defense is probably not much less talented than Clemson's, and Clemson managed to hang in all game. Georgia's looked like a beast so far, though. Their defense gives up nothing. I just can't see Auburn losing by less than 20. Georgia.
Penn State +2 @ Iowa: I really don't think either of these teams is Top 4 material, although it does seem this year that there are only really 2 elite teams, Georgia and Alabama, so maybe this really is a big game. Both QBs run hot and cold, in particular the Iowa QB. The PSU QB can be a factor running, he runs like a fullback. Iowa's defense has been under-appreciated for years. They rarely make a mistake and allow EZ yards. Points will be at a premium in this game, so I'll take the the team getting the points, especially since they will have the best player on the field, Jahan Dotson, one big play from him, maybe on a punt return, could make the difference. Penn State.
Michigan -3.5 @ Nebrasska: The Hot Seat Coaches Bowl. Probably the biggest game of their careers at their current schools for Scott Frost and Jim Harbaugh. Both are former glamour boy QBs come back to restore glory to the old alma mater. . .but the results have been disappointing, to say the least. Michigan is 5-0 and looking much better than the abysmal 2020 team, which played so soft and so uninspired, it cost Jim Harbaugh a $4 million pay cut to keep his job. If Harbaugh can win this and the Michigan State game, he will have probably done enough to buy a free pass for the Penn State and Ohio State games, especially as he seems to have a plan to groom JJ McCarthy for a big 2022 season, in which Michigan has an easier schedule than this year. Scott Frost has done even less, stringing together 3 straight losing seasons of shit-ass football. Nebrasska's 3-3, but should be 5-1, they kicked away games against Illinois and Michigan State, which makes this one so important. He needs to win a game against a team that at least looks good on paper, and he would get to 4-3 with two easy games coming up, before a brutal end to the season with Ohio State, Wisconsin and Iowa. If he loses to Michigan, a fourth straight losing season looms. I doubt he would be fired, but there would be little momentum heading into his crucial 5th year, a year in which he will have a much younger team and have to break in a new QB. He needs this winning season to buy off a rough 2022 and keep himself from lame duck status. The key to the game, as most Nebrasska games, is will Adrian Martinez and the special teams avoid the stupid mistakes which have cost them so many games. They are coming off their most complete performance of the Frost era, granted it was against shit-ass Northwestern. . .but is it really asking too much of Nebrasska to play two clean games in a row? Plus, I just don't think it is in the cards for Jim Harbaugh at Michigan, I haven't ever since that 4th down OT spot in the 2016 Ohio State game. I think his reluctance to put too much on McCarthy this year hurts him big time in this game, as Cade McNamara will toss a couple horrible INTs. Nebrasska.
Week 4 NFL Recap: Urban Meyer *sickened* by loss to Cincinnati, doesn't fly home with team. Video surfaces of Meyer on a bar stool with a young blonde named Cayman Nebraska twerking her ass against his cock (we don't know if his cock was erect or flaccid). Second video surfaces, this one showing Meyer fingering blonde's anus/cunt, thus leading one to believe Meyer's cock was probably erect in video #1. Meyer apologizes to players and owner for being a distraction, to wife for being a man. Paki Jaguars owner scolds Meyer in public statement. Meyer reportedly a laughingstock to his players. Trevor Lawrence thinking, man, college ball did nothing to prepare me for this shit. All this scandal is due to the modern stocks of Social Media. In the electronic age of the All-Seeing iPhone Camera, everyone will be shamed for 15 minutes. What amusement Meyer has provided Social Media! The NFL continues to make more news off the field. The Meyer *scandal* dwarfs Brady's Homecoming. Anyway, it seems most *experts* believe Meyer will fail in the NFL. I still believe he can win, but only if he is truly still coaching. There is some evidence now to suspect he is just mailing it in just to cash a big paycheck from his Paki owner. The Paki owner may have suspected he had been fleeced, prompting him to issue the scolding public statement over a trivial incident as the first step to getting out of a ridiculous contract for a coach who no longer lives and dies with the game. We'll see. MVP Kelly Stafford and boyfriend Genius Coach Sean McVay lost a game??? Sports Media told us this was practically impossible! What happened?? Did Kelly sneak back to Detroit and roll around in a stinking pile of Lion shit?? Jimmy Crappolo injured again. Although it probably isn't really an injury, just Jimmy's low threshold for discomfort. His softness cost his team the game. Lost in all the Tom Brady You Can't Go Home Again hype is the fact Bill Belichick is now 1-3, after a losing season last year. So, when does he stop being considered a great coach, and not just a bum who lucked into Tom Brady? His chickenshit decision not to go for it on 4th down late in the first half cost his team 3 points. He gave the ball back to Tom Brady, who easily marched the Bucs into field goal range. And what if he loses to Dana Scully and Hayley Mills this week? If there is such a thing as football karma, it will happen. Nobody is due for more football shit-storms than that (meritless) arrogant prick.
NFL Picks Week 5 (20-21-1 vs the spread for the season):
Los Angeles Rams -2.5 @ Seattle: The Seahawks are a shaky 2-2, lucky Jimmy Crappolo begged out of the last game, or they'd be 1-3. Man-for-man the Rams are the better roster, but Seattle has the better QB and is getting points. If the Rams lose this one, the collar will start to tighten on MVP Kelly Stafford. Seattle.
New York Jets +3 vs Atlanta: Zach Wilson had his best game, making some great throws to help the Jets get their first win. The kid does not panic or get down on himself. Unlike some QBs, such as Jared gOOf, when a play starts to go bad, such as a mishandled snap, Wilson doesn't freeze. Against the Titans he simply scooped up a bobbled snap, dropped back a couple steps and calmly delivered a perfect deep pass to set-up a game-tying TD. Wilson will probably end up the best of this year's rookie QB crop. This is the Falcons fourth tomato can shit-ass team in five games, yet if they drop this one, they'd be a shameful 1-4. I'll take Xerxes over Little Lord Fauntleroy, who I hear has spent most of the week lining up sightseeing events for his players, he wants to make sure they don't miss out on the cultural gems of London, even has an afternoon tea booked for the entire team at Petersham Nurseries! New York Jets.
Detroit +7.5 @ Minnesota: This one will be ugly. The Lions secondary has more holes than the crotch in Cayman Nebraska's jeans after a night out with Urban Meyer. And the offensive line is in a shambles. Minnesota can name their score in this one. Minnesota.
Tennessee -4 @ Jacksonville: If Jacksonville gets blown out, Urban Meyer might resign. He tends to quit when the road gets a little bumpy, and a blow out loss to a mediocre team would probably indicate his players have bagged it. Do the Jags really want to try to get in Derrick Henry's way for their coach? Henry would set a single-game rushing record in this one, if it wasn't already over by half-time. Tennessee.
Chicago +5.5 @ Las Vegas: Must win for Raiders. Can't lose to a shit-ass team at home, can't follow a nice 3-0 start with 2 losses. Derek Carr needs a big game after being called out as psychologically fragile by Joey Bosa. The Bears defense still has a few teeth left, but their offense lost their best player, RB David Montgomery. Still, could be a better game than most expect. Las Vegas.
Cleveland +1.5 @ Los Angeles Chargers: After shitting away their first game to KC, the Browns are slowly rounding into SB form. I expect the Browns to win the AFC, their defense particularly is getting it into gear. Will be a long afternoon for Justin Herbert. Browns getting points? Lock of the season, so far. Cleveland.
