ECU -15 @ USF – USF is terrible, I hope they win but I think ECU wins by 20+
UNC +17 @ Notre Dame – Again I hope they lose so apparently I’m going opposites of what I really want this week
BC +4 at NC State – I dont feel good about playing a team rated in the top 10 in rushing offense.
Baylor -9 vs TCU – Let down game for TCU
Clemson -9.5 vs Lville – I just dont think Lville is that good.
Tamu beats Ol Miss
Auburn beats Miss St
Wisc -8 vs Northwestern
Ole Miss +6 vs Bama
Clemson -14.5 vs NC State
Cuse +2.5 vs Lville
ECU -40 vs SMU
and for fun
Va Tech -1.5 vs UNC
I suck at this game but this is my week!
Clemson -14 vs the holes – Carolina sucks and now they get a pissed off Deshaun Watson and a Clemson Def. that is down right good. Tigers roll.
Wisconsin – 31 vs USF – South Florida is horrible. Melvin Gordon may score 31 more points than USF by himself.
BC – 6.5 vs Col St – Unfortunately BC has looked better than any expected thanks to Tyler Murphy’s legs.
Louisville – 21 vs Wake – I don’t think Lville is that good but I do think Wake is THAT bad.
NC State +19.5 vs FSU – Considering the Noles beat us in 1 quarter last year I have no reason to make this pick except I think this is the year of the hangover game. Everyone who has had a big win this year has lost the next game. VT, UGA, USC, etc.
Strange, I def put my picks in last week. I took, ECU, GA So. Utah St, Lville, and State. If you add my 4-1 the collective did not suck.
This weeks lines are a little tighter.
UGA (- 39.5) vs Troy – All Gurley all the time. Interesting fact, TOB was close to landing Gurley until he visited UGA, and the only reason I picked this game was so I could write that.
FSU – 20 vs Clemson – I really wanted to pick Clemson in this game because I’m not in love with this FSU team but Clemson hasn’t shown me enough to think they’ll not get trucked by the Noles. I hope FSU rolls and they come to Raleigh for their annual let down game.
Army @ Wake Forest (Pick) – I’m taking Army to come to Winston Salem and upset the Deacs. Army held strong against Stanford for a half and Wake is just garbage right now.
UNC (+2.5) at ECU – I have no clue who is going to win this game but I wanted to at least pick an interesting one. ECU would be ripe for a let down game and UNC can score just as fast as the Pirates. If this were a night game in Greenville I’d say the Heels have no shot but I think they might squeak this one out. For the record, I hope this ends in a 0-0 loss for both teams.
NC State vs Blue Hose (Off) – Hope the Pack can keep things rolling as they were vs USF. That was the best I’ve seen a State team dominate in a long time. I’m going with 48 – 7 and we’ll see a whole lot of freshman playing.
Solid preview. Thanks
Ouch 0-5 last week
Ole Miss – 20 vs Vandy – Vandy looked horrible in a 31-7 loss to Temple. I usually don’t pick home dogs but they were that bad
NC State – 16 vs ODU – Coaches got caught trying to be a little vanilla against a veteran coach who was able to expose youth in the safeties/LBs but I’m hoping they don’t hold back against a poor ODU defense.
Troy + 19 vs Duke – I’m not on the Duke bandwagon and Troy is usually a solid team.
ND – 5 vs Mich – Michigan stole Roseboro from us, I’m bitter still
Va Tech +11.5 @ Ohio St – This one should be closer than most think and Va Tech might even sneak it out although not many non-conferences teams go to OSU and win.
Hines isn’t considered a RB but more of a Slot guy. Love is the one we have the least chance at but I def. think the staff will be taking 3 RBs this year excluding Hines.
NC State vs Ga Southern (-22.5) – There is no doubt I am one of the few optimists still left around here and I think we’ll be much improved on both sides of the ball. Ga Southern lost its coach and will be implementing a scheme away from the triple option days of the past. Although they have skill talent, we should dominate the lines.
Ohio State vs Navy (-17.5) – I’m not sure why this line is so close. Ohio St returns a potent offense and has more than enough to out athlete Navy on the D. Buckeyes roll
Alabama vs West Va (-26.6) – I hate picking lines this big but Bama will smoke those mountain folk. Holgerson will be fired at the end of the year.
FSU vs Ok St (-17.5) – I think this game will tell us how good (or bad) FSU is going to be this year. I think they’ll be pretty damn good.
UCLA @ UVA (-21.5) – There are better games to pick but I think this one is intriguing. One of the Pac-10/12 favorites flying to the east coast to play bottom of the barrel UVA team. Wahoos will probably cover the spread but who wants to see that? Go Bruins.
Other games of interest – Wake vs ULM (ULM), LSU vs Wisc (LSU), UGA vs Clemson (Clemson)
She did address that.
I-AA Presbyterian was inherited from the “previous administration” while Old Dominion and Georgia Southern are both I-A now.
What she is saying is that she schedule low level FBS opponents so we could get wins, which is what helps build a program more than tough L’s
We are out of it for Derrell Scott, he’s down to USC< Tenn, and Fl
Dude. Great post!
Copeland was removed a few weeks ago.
Fordham was not very good, his loss won’t be felt except from a depth standpoint.
Not Surprising. He was never meant to be a triple-option QB and apparently Johnson told him they were changing the offense. From what I hear, we would have landed him had the staff not given him a deadline which he didn’t like. He might have been useful this year : /
TOBTime, shoot us an email with your issue statefans [at] gmail and I’ll take care of it.
Tank also has the original Welcome to the Carter song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5loZge3937E&feature=related
Bodies by Drowning Pool was by far the best ever. The student section would just go ape-*** over that.
Tank’s song should get some play though. Got to show some love to our own!
