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
@MockDraftMan14 Thank you, I appreciate you reading my ramblings and opinions on what teams should try to look for come next April. I know, I may over value blockers more than some which, is what most likely differs the most from your rankings. In the end, it's only June so who knows what's going to happen.
While we greatly differ on prospect rankings, something that should be assumed this early in the process, I see great thought was put into each pick and they all make sense when looked at through your perspective on the players. Great job!
Out of sheer boredom and the upcoming NBA draft has gotten me itching to make a new mock draft. Of course the NFL draft is a whole lot less predictable than the NBA draft, but also provides more success stories than the NBA draft. Again, I used schedules to determine each team's records and if you get upset with me just remember it's June and a whole lot can change by next April.
