A college football blogger not pretending to know more than the readers of college football blogs, don’t we all feel better now?
My name is Adam, and I don’t know shit about College Football predictions.
Having said that: I’m going to pick Sun Belt games all season long and and attempt to prove I’m no better or worse than “the professionals” on television, radio and online. We’re picking against the spread, and I am so happy to share my flawed, uninformed, and quite ridiculous logic with you. After each week’s games play out, I’ll compare my picks with those of by BotS colleagues, and we’ll see what in the flying hell happened.
Here’s a few of my picks for this week and how I went about it.
TRUE-L Lafayette @ Arkansas (-10.5)
I had to kick myself in the taint over and over to be logical and pick the SEC’s dimwit son to cover the spread: ARKANSAS
Ark. – Pine Bluff @ Arkansas St. (-19.5)
19 ½ points is really hard to give to a Sun Belt team. Don’t embarrass me Sun Belt: ARKANSAS STATE
LA – Monroe @ (#16) Oklahoma (-23.5)
Remember, we’re degenerate gamblers picking against the spread. Will Oklahoma win: YES! YES! YES! YES! (#FearTheBeard). All I’m saying is “Is Monroe a tune-up game?” I’m probably over-analyzing things, so I’ll just go with the consensus: OKLAHOMA
New Mexico State @ (#15) Texas (-42.5)
Here’s my “You’re a fucking idiot” pick of the week. If you put a gun to my head, and said I had to bet $500,000 on this, I wouldn’t have the confidence that Texas could cover a 42 ½ point spread in week one: NEW MEXICO STATE!!
Games I will “eeny-meany-miney-mo” before game time
Idaho @ North Texas (-15.5) – How bad is Idaho? I don’t fucking know…
Southern Utah @ South Alabama (-19.5) – South Bam’er never scored 14 points in NCAA Football 14 since I bought it months ago…
Samford @ Georgia State (-19.5) – Sounds like a bowl game for a movie that doesn’t have NCAA licensing rights. What am I supposed to do with this shit?
They say the addiction of gambling isn’t about winning, rather it’s the high of losing big and trying to recoup the money. Well sample the Heisenberg Blue fucker, because my picks don’t get riskier than this!
Also, don’t e-mail me asking me about my obscure references. Kill some brain cells in front of the TV like a true American.
