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.
UAB at Ohio State Line: Ohio State by 36.5. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
As a disclaimer, don't go nuts with my college football picks. I'm much better at picking NFL games (at least I used to be); I'm just doing these upon request. Follow @walterfootball for updates.
Urban Meyer loves to run up the score against inferior competition. UAB is, without a doubt, inferior competition. I don't see how this one stays close.
College Football Pick: Ohio State -36.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Wyoming at Idaho Line: Idaho by 2. Saturday, 5:00 p.m.
Idaho is coming off a tough loss, so I don't see it being fully up for Wyoming. The Vandals put way too much stock into that LSU game.
College Football Pick: Wyoming +2 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Southern Alabama at Mississippi State Line: Mississippi State by 34. Saturday, 7:00 p.m.
This is another game in which the home favorite should take care of business. I don't see how Southern Alabama can be competitive with the Bulldogs.
College Football Pick: Mississippi State -34 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
San Jose State at San Diego State Line: San Diego State by 3. Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
The wrong team is favored. San Jose State nearly upset Stanford in the opener and then demolished two other teams after that.
College Football Pick: San Jose State +3 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
Kansas State at Oklahoma Line: Oklahoma by 14. Saturday, 7:50 p.m.
What's with this start time? 7:50? What the hell is that? At any rate, I like good teams going into the bye because they tend to be focused.
College Football Pick: Oklahoma -14 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110
@Black&Gold Problem is that you see Eli and Cobi as solid backups. Truth is that Eli is number 2 and Cobi is our number 3. They aren't backups, but starters. So what you're saying is that we have no true number 2, but see no need in drafting a receiver? What D line depth are you thinking? DE or NT? Have you seen what LT Walton has done? Remember he's only in his second year.
@Steelr Fan 3:16 Coates was supposed to be plan B at number 2 with the uncertainty of Bryant. You make the case that he's a one trick pony and not a 50 catch per season wide-out, so does that scream out as a option for number 2? What gives you hope about Green? I hope he does end up staying on the field, but so far in his career he hasn't be able to do that. I like James, but if he goes down you trust Grimble? He can't block, and hasn't been reliable in the pass game. He did mess his ribs up with a nice touchdown reception a few weeks ago. That still doesn't mean he can pick up and be an impact if James would not be able to go. We have 7 picks in this draft. The first I hope goes OLB. We are good at CB with Burnes and @[email protected] will be challenged hopefully by Golson. Loser of the battle would be a good slot corner. Golson lacks length so they may throw him in the slot role anyways. LT Walton has been more than solid at DE. If Heyward or Tuitt can't go a few weeks during the season then I have faith in LT to get the job done. I like Chickillo and Moates at OLB. They have started and played solid. Williams and Dirty Red at backup ILB is good depth that any team would love. Safety we have Golden and Dangerfield. Both have started any didn't miss a beat. Offensive line? Yeah, we're good there. You say we're good at tight end and WR, so with or final 6 picks we're going what exactly? A RB would be nice with Williams age. A backup that won't see the field unless God forbid Bell gets hurt is a wasted pick anywhere in the top 4 rounds. Maybe 5th would be suffice. That's 2 picks gone and 5 to go. A backup QB of the future would be nice. Four to go. A special teamed lol? Warren, Boswell, and Berry are really good.
