2012 BCS Predictions 11/1

Rose Bowl: Nebraska vs Oregon - I see Oregon beating Stanford in a close game. It is really a toss up in my mind though. I think Oregon will come out of the Pac 12 as the winner and they will get the automatic spot in the BCS. Nebraska is a shot in the dark. Wisconsin has 2 losses in the Big Ten. Ohio State has 2 loses. Penn State has 1 but still has to play Wisconsin, Nebraska, and Wisconsin. Illinois has 2. I think Nebraska will emerge from the dust at the winner.

Sugar Bowl: LSU vs Stanford - This would be subject to change depending on who wins the big matchup this weekend. Whoever loses will end up in this game in my opinion. The Sugar Bowl also gets an At-Large bid and I think they would like to bring Stanford into this game. This would be a very interesting matchup because LSU has one of the best defenses matched up against one of the best QBs in college football.

Orange Bowl: West Virginia vs Virginia Tech - The Big East is falling apart and guess what? Everyone still sucks. West Virginia always seems to be able to pull out some late games and win the conference. I'm not picking against them. I know Clemson is winning the conference but I have picked against Beamer before and I was wrong, so I don't pick against Virginia Tech anymore. They always fly under the radar and they are doing so again.

Fiesta Bowl: Boise State vs Oklahoma - Wouldn't the Fiesta Bowl love to get this rematch? Boise State will probably go undefeated and once again, get shut out of the National Championship. Oklahoma has looked good for most of the year and more than likely they will once again end up in a BCS game.

BCS National Championship Game: Alabama vs Oklahoma State - If Alabama wins this weekend then more than likely they should end up in the National Championship game. They have played the normal Nick Saban Alabama way. Running the ball and defense. Oklahoma State is the exact opposite. Oklahoma State has the potential to score 35 points in the matter of 4 minutes. If this game happened we would see one of the most explosive offenses against one of the best defenses. It would be an exciting game for sure.

Pre week 9 BCS Predictions

Rose Bowl: Michigan State vs Oklahoma - Michigan State looks to be in control of the Big Ten. They control their own destiny. While I don't think they will go undefeated, I believe they will win the Big Ten. I believe they will lose to Iowa but they will still win the Big Ten and make the Rose Bowl. Oklahoma lost to Missouri last week but that doesn't mean they can't get an At-Large bid or even win the Big 12. I think the Rose Bowl takes them with an At-Large bid and we could be looking at a very good game in the Rose Bowl.

Orange Bowl: Syracuse vs Miami (FL) - How messed up is this? This is like matching up Kimbo Slice vs that nerdy kid in your high school class. Syracuse is 5-2 right now and 2-1 in the conference. They trail Pitt who is 2-0 in the conference but Pitt has been inconsistant this season. Miami is slowly coming back this season after a bad start. I believe they will come back and win the ACC and go to the Orange Bowl this season.

Sugar Bowl: Alabama vs Boise State - Alabama is still a very good team. I feel they are flying under the radar for the moment since the #1 has fallen 3 weeks in a row. They can still contend for a National Championship but for the moment they are a good choice for an At-Large bid for the Sugar Bowl. Boise State, guess what? Still not National Championship game. Doesn't that just suck? You can play Alabama though and show the nation you can contend with them though.

Fiesta Bowl: Missouri vs Utah - How did Missouri beat Oklahoma last week? I am not sure but they won the Fiesta Bowl. Now they are my pick to win the Big 12. They play Nebraska and they have to play the winner of the Big 12 South, which is currently lead by Baylor, yes Baylor. I am still firmly believing that Utah is going to beat TCU. Many think I am crazy, and maybe I am, but I am calling the upset that the Utes are going to beat the Horned Frogs of Texas Christian.

National Championship: Auburn vs Oregon - This didn't change from last week. Auburn and Oregon are still my picks to play for the National Championship game this year. Auburn and Cam Newton have been unstoppable and Oregon can litterally not be stopped. They have an explosive offense and this game would for sure be a shootout.

Pre Week 8 BCS Predictions

Rose Bowl: Michigan State vs Nebraska - Michigan State is probably one team that no one expected to be 7-0 at this point. The rest of their season is fairly easy but I believe they slip up somewhere but still get an 11-1 record, good enough to put them in the Rose Bowl for the first time since 1966. Nebraska's hope for an undefeated season where smashed when Texas showed them up. They don't win the Big 12 in my book though, but an At-Large bid is still good enough.

Orange Bowl: West Virgina vs Miami(FL) - West Virginia is still the only team in the Big East that is even any good. They have no competition and should win the conference easily. Miami is working on coming back this season. Jacory Harris is going to need to play a lot better than he has been the past few weeks though. They might be back in the top 25 this week. The ACC is still wide open and could change next week and probably will. Who knows, maybe Virginia Tech gets back in the BCS.

Sugar Bowl: Alabama vs Utah - I am still sticking with this. Alabama is a very good team and I think they may lose 1 more game. They are a very balanced team and Mark Ingram alone is a diffference maker. Like I have been saying, I am calling Utah to beat TCU and go undefeated. TCU has Air Force in two weeks then the big show down with TCU. I'm calling it, Utah over TCU.

Fiesta Bowl: Boise State vs Oklahoma - Boise, again, you are not going to the National Championship game. Try again next week. You are a very balanced team but your schedule is what is killing you. If you would be playing in the MWC this year then I would have no problem putting you in the National Championship, but you aren't. Oklahoma plays Missouri this week and they seem to be the front runner to win the Big 12 at this point. They may have to play Nebraska in the Big 12 Championship game, but other than that, Oklahoma State is the only big game left this season for them.

BCS National Championship Game: Oregon vs Auburn - Oregon has not shown much of a weakness all season. There is nothing that has shown me that they are going to be beat this season. LaMicheal James has been incredible and he seems impossible to stop. Auburn who is led by Cam Newton just won a shootout vs Arkansas. They have a big game vs LSU next week and the last week of the season vs Alabama. They should win their other games without a problem. We shall see how things turn out in the coming weeks.

Week 10 Predictions

#1 Florida vs Vanderbilt - Okay, really? Do I have to go into detail. Florida SHOULD win this game pretty easily with out much trouble and Tebow should have a big day. Florida 45-7

#2 Texas vs UCF - UCF has no chance. Easily said. Colt McCoy has a big day and the backups eventually come in, probably in the second half because Texas is up by so much. Texas 49-6

#3 Alabama vs #9 LSU - A very good game. LSU's season depends on this game so they can go to the SEC championship game. Alabama is the only team in there way. Jordan Jefferson has a big day, BUT Mark Engram has a bigger day. Alabama wins. Alabama 27-20

#4 Cincinnati vs Conneticut - UCONN is still not playing well since the loss of one of their players and Tony Pike is practicing so I am going to have to go with Cincinnati but watch out. Close. 10 points or less. Cincinnati 31-21

#5 Boise State at Louisiana Tech - Boise State wins. It is the WAC. Boise is the only good team this year and possibly Fresno but they beat them already. Boise wins big. Boise 56-7

#6 TCU at San Diego State - TCU wins in a blowout. It will be by atleast 30 points. TCU is my pick to go to a BCS game. TCU 42-10

#7 Oregon at Stanford -  Watch out Oregon. Stanford has Tony Gerhart and after such and emotional win, this could be a trap game for Oregon. Very Close. Comes down to the 4th quarter but Oregon pulls it out. Oregon 31-27

#8 Iowa vs Northwestern - Iowa is going to give there coach a heart attack this year. Knowing them, Northwestern keeps it close in the first half but Iowa pulls of some magic and wins again. Iowa 42-31

#10 Georgia Tech vs Wake Forest - Wake Forest got unluckly last week and unfortunantly they aren't going to have any luck this week either. Georgia Tech wins 35-10

#12 USC at Arizona State - USC is angry this week and puts on an offensive show case. Not even close. Arizona State is like a punching bag this week. USC 52-10

#13 Houston at Tulsa - Houston doesn't pull of a late win this week.... They just win by putting up a ton of points. Tulsa, your going to lose. Houston 56-35

#14 Pittsburg at Syracuse - Pitt has been playing well and it doesn't stop here. Greg Paulus puts up a fight but not for long. Pitt win 32-17

#15 Ohio State at #11 Penn State - I think this will be the best game. This is a toss up. I think Ohio State comes into this game with a chip on there should and play with a ton of intensity. Penn State has to win this game to even have a chance at a Rose Bowl birth. Ohio State 24-20

#16 Miami (FL) vs Virgainia - Miami, you won't have to convert a 4 &16. you win 35-7. No need to worry about a late comeback from Jacory Harris.

#17 Utah vs New Mexico - New Mexico has too much controversy around them. That wouldn't matter anyways. Utah doesn't even have to try. Utah wins 48-7

#18 Oklahoma State at Iowa State - Iowa State is 5-3 and I think they will put up a good fight but Oklahoma State pulls it out. Oklahoma State should be on upset alert though. Oklahoma State wins in a close one. 31-30.

#19 Notre Dame IDLE - Notre Dame can sit back and just watch the comptetion and hope they make BCS

#20 Oklahoma at Nebraska - Oklahoma goes down. Nebraska and Bo Pelini take out Bob Stoops and the Sooners. Nebraska wins on a last second field goal though. 30-28

#21 Arizona vs Washinton State - Washington State is horrible. Arizona wins easily. Arizona 38-9

#22Virginia Tech at East Carolina - Virginia Tech wants revenge on East Carolina from last year, and they get it. The Hokies and Ryan Williams win big. Tech 38-6

#23 California vs Oregon State - Oregon State has played well and I think well enought to pull the upset. Javid Best has a good game but not good enough. Oregon State wins 27-17

#24 Wisconsin at Indiana - Wisconsin doesn't let Indiana hang around like Iowa did. They win, but closer than the experts think. Wisconsin 31-17

#25 BYU at Wyoming - Max Hall keeps BYU from getting upset but it is not even close. BYU wins 45-7

College Football Fans

I am a loyal Ohio State fan but sometimes I get annoyed with Tressel, Pryor, and the play calling. But something I can get really annoyed with is fans. They get so eager to post something that makes no sense or something just to stir up some other fans. Right now all I see on the college football board is Ohio State is going to beat Iowa, Boise State is a fake, Oregon should play for the National Championship, Cincinnati is great, Tebow Tebow Tebow, and Rich Rod should be fired. Now I am going to talk about all of them in order I said them.

Ohio State is going to beat Iowa should not even be on the board yet. They still have to play Penn State next week. Also, remember how we lost to Purdue? That could easily happen agaisnt Iowa. Don't get too excited yet because the season isn't over yet. Things could still happen. For all we know, Pryor and Bauserman could both get injured next week and we would have to play a guy who is redshirting this year. I am not saying don't be passionate, I am saying don't look ahead of next week against Penn State.

Boise is a fake is a false statement. They beat Oregon. I will give Oregon some slack that it was the first game for a new head coach and they have changed ever since that game. Yes Boise has not played the best schedule, actually it is quite horrible. Oregon is the only team that is actually good that they played and they beat them. They are undefeated right now and any team that is undefeated should still be considered a very good football team.

Oregon fans, you lost to Boise and that hurt you. Luckly the voters have seen your team get red hot and play the best football of any team in the country right now. Unfortunatly that loss in my opinion will hurt you. I don't see Florida, Texas, Iowa, Cincinnati, or Alabama losing to put you in place to play for it. It doens't matter if you are playing the best if you still have that loss it will cost you. You still have hope. There is light at the end of the tunnel but it is closing quick.

Cincinnati, be realistic. You really haven't play a really good football team yet and I think if you would play Oklahoma, Texas, Florida, Alabama, or Oregon, you would lose by double digits. If Tony Pike's injury continues to linger it could cost you a game and possibly a chance at the BCS National Championship game or even a BCS birth. Your backup is good but he is still no Tony Pike and he is the guy you need to be successful.

I hate Tebow. I will be honest. I think he is good QB but not the "Greatest College Football Player Ever." He is not playing well this year but somehow they are still undefeated. There team was better last year with Percy Harvin then they are this year. Tebow may have records and a Heisman but I still think that Heisman should have went to Darren McFadden.

To Michigan fans, your team sucks. Rich Rod ruined your history in a matter of a year and a half. You are on your way to possibly not making a bowl game again for the first time in 50 years. The problem is, you owe him too much money. You paid West Virginia 4 million dollars for this guy? That has to be the worst 4 million dollars they ever spent. You guys could have had Greg Schiano would probably would have gotten you better results. Just remember, Jim Tressel has only lost to you once.

2009-2010 BCS game preview

This year many people think they know who will be in the BCS National Championship game. Well I am going to predict the other 4 BCS games this season. First, the Sugar Bowl.

Sugar Bowl: Ole Miss vs Boise State

I believe this is the year for Ole Miss. They have all the pieces they need to be a very good team. I think they will beat Alabama and go into the SEC title game with one loss. Boise will make the Sugar bowl and try for a second time to upset a top team in a BCS game. 
Final Result: Ole Miss wins

Orange Bowl: Cincinnati vs Virginia Tech

REMATCH! Let's be honest, the Big East is horrible. Someone has to win it though and I believe the Bearcats will emerge the winner but it won't be pretty. They will probably have 2, 3, or possibly 4 loses. Virginia Tech on the other hand should have a very good season and go through the ACC without a blemish.
Final Result: Virgina Tech wins easily

Fiesta Bowl: Penn State vs Oklahoma

To all the sad Oklahoma fans, I think it will happen to you this year. Texas will beat you and this time they will get what they deserve. Oklahoma will still have a good season and I think Texas will be their only loss. Now Penn State, you only have one hard game and I think you will lose it. It doesn't help your image must but with you only losing to Ohio State, that puts you at 11-1 and with that record, you make the fiesta bowl.
Final Result: Oklahoma wins

Rose Bowl: Ohio State vs USC

First, I think Ohio State will win the game vs USC and beat Penn State BUT...... I think the Buckeyes will slip up in the season if it is to Illinois, Iowa, or someone else. They could possibly go undefeated but get shut out of the title game because of two other teams. Next USC, I think they will be 11-1 or 10-2 going into this game with loses to Ohio State and either Cal or Oregon because USC always has trouble playing in the state of Oregon. Pete Carroll could be playing musical quarterbacks for some of the season so that will be a challenge.  
Final Result: Ohio State wins

BCS National Championship: Florida vs Texas

How it should have been last year. Colt McCoy and the Longhorns don't get ripped off like they were last year. They go undefeated this year and they make it to the big game. Florida, What to say? They are the most dominating team in the SEC. Tebow is a fullback who can throw, so that makes him a double threat. Florida goes undefeated through the SEC.
Final Result................ Texas wins

Bonus! Heisman Pick!
1. Colt McCoy
2. Javid Best
3.Tim Tebow
4. Sam Bradford
5. Julio Jones
