By the way, the fourth-annual Walter/Joker Annual Challenge is on, as I'll be competing with the Joker's College Picks. We each pick five games and see who does the best each week.
Houston at Tulane Line: Houston by 34. Thursday, 8:00 p.m.
As a disclaimer, don't go nuts with my college football picks. I'm much better at picking NFL games (though not this year); I'm just doing these upon request. Follow @walterfootball for updates.
I've been on Houston for the past few weeks, and I'm going to keep riding them. They're going to win out and claim the co-national championship by beating some crap team in a crap bowl.
College Football Pick: Houston -34 (4 Units) -- Correct; +$400
Nebraska at Penn State Line: Nebraska by 3.5. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
Joe Paterno has been fired. The Penn State football players have spent the entire week meeting with Paterno, rallying for Paterno and doing other things that don't include preparing for this football game. I don't know how the hell they can possibly beat Nebraska considering the circumstances.
College Football Pick: Nebraska -3.5 (3 Units) -- Incorrect; -$330
Oklahoma State at Texas Tech Line: Oklahoma State by 17. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
Oklahoma State nearly lost to Kansas State. I wasn't really too impressed, and they could easily lose to a Texas Tech squad that took down Oklahoma.
College Football Pick: Texas Tech +17 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Western Kentucky at LSU Line: LSU by 41. Saturday, 7:00 p.m.
I don't see Western Kentucky keeping up with LSU at all.
College Football Pick: LSU -41 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Alabama at Mississippi State Line: Alabama by 18. Saturday, 7:45 p.m.
Alabama will be flat off its loss to LSU. Their offense sucks anyway, so covering 18 points will be difficult.
College Football Pick: Mississippi State +18 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
@robert4fun0058 This was what happened with Cam Newton until about a week before the draft, then everyone had him at number one. Another similar situation was Russell Wilson, who many on this message board were calling to be picked in round one, but most were ignoring that and coming up with reasons why the eye test was wrong. Manzel and Tebow, on the other hand got no lack of hype. The eye test tells us Watson and Newton and Wilson are all NFL QBs and Manzel and Tebow etc are not. But there are still enough people who will take Goff over Prescott, Tannehill over Wilson, etc. I am not saying race is a factor, but...somebody else will need to explain to me what make Trubinsky a better QB prospect than Kizer
I've been on a hiatus with draft work lately and was focused on my Draft Prospect Rankings which you could find in the rants on this site. So, I figured doing one more before the Combine where more prospect movement could occur to see where I stand before and after with those prospects. So, without further adieu here we go!
