Weekend Football Favorites

You know what the best part of football season is? It’s not fantasy football, it’s not tailgates, it’s not arguing about who should be in the college football playoff, and it’s not watching Chris Berman WHOOP! himself into a stroke. No the best part about football season is that you get to sit on your couch for two straight days and when someone asks you what you did over the weekend you get to say, “I watched football.” Boom. The entire slovenly affair of eating chips off your chest, not showering for 36 hours, and drinking 1000 beers is justified with that simple statement. If you have a weekend like that the other 8 months of the year and tell someone about it, well, then they think you’re a drunk slob. But not during football season.

Week 2 of College football…woof

Week 2 of the college football schedule is for cupcakes, plain and simple. The spreads are huge, the money lines are laughable, and the real excitement lies with the NFL. There is n’t one match up on the board of 2 ranked teams. While most will look at the match ups and claim there isn’t one close game on the docket, I will scream my head off saying the only watchable game this week is VT vs those frauds in Knoxville.

It is the Prime Time game of the week but I feel like it was pegged for that distinction for all the wrong reasons. First bullshit reason, it is a neutral site game being played at a racetrack, (Bristol Motor Speed Way) and it is likely going to smash any attendance record out there simple because there is a mile’s worth of stands to fill. Second, the aforementioned frauds of Tennessee came into the season ranking in the top 10 and promptly lost to App State. (They should have lost to App State and only won by a stroke of luck)

The Real reason this game should be the prime time game of the week is simply because it will be the only match up with two big time schools, it might be the only completive game involving a ranked team. The Current line:

VT +11

O/U 53.5

I audibly scoffed at this line when I saw it. VT is under new managemen, yes, but they have the most talent on the Offensive side of the ball since Tyrod was running around Blacksburg. Bud Foster’s Defense is licking it chops after watching the Vols struggle against App State and won’t let the Vols get too far ahead even if they do take the lead. I love the UTENN QB and am worried he will come out ballin’ after stinking up the joint on a nationally televised game against an inferior opponent. In the end it will be the ghost of Beamer Ball that gives the Hokies the win. VT 24 UT 18

*Doc’s Orders: Literally bet the house and everything else you own on VT +11

College Football is Back! Have Some Non-Expert Picks

College Football

We did it guys and gals! We made it! Another long, boring, sports drought summer has come and gone. We’re leaving the summer solstice behind in exchange for Autumn, formally known as Fall. I’m talking tshirt and jeans weather, I’m talking early morning tailgating, I’m talking COLLEGE FOOTBALL. Co-eds, overrating the SEC, Jim Harbough, overrating the SEC, Oregon Uniforms, overrating the SEC, Heisman hopefuls, and of course, overrating the SEC.

The season kicks off on Thursday. It’s early aka you can make outlandish, non-informed predictions and nobody can really argue otherwise. Trust me, Virginia Tech does it every year. God speed Bud Foster! Let’s take a look at the marquee opening day massacres and try and pull out the best games to watch and get ready for ESPN’s College Gameday Bus to roll into your campuses soon.  Continue reading “College Football is Back!
