I’ll post rest of my plays tomorrow. BOL !!
traveling to Provo on a Thursday night will be a challenge; however I feel that
the Houston football team is up for it. They have tremendous talent on both
sides of the ball. The key for them will be to avoid turnovers; BYU is a great
team with a talented quarterback. They beat a bad uconn team, and a beat down Texas
team. As I said, BYU is a great team as they did show that last week, and they
destroyed my Texas pick of last week. They play with full effort every play. However
the value lies with Houston, and I think this game will be close and tight
going in to the fourth quarter, even with the possibility of Houston leading
the game going into the fourth. Houston is a good play here.
YTD: 4-1 LW: 4-1
4 picks this Saturday
BOL Everyone this week !!
Navy – 3
Navy comes to
Philadelphia with a close loss to an Ohio state football team that could be
playing in the playoff. Navy played them strong, but the talent and depth of
Ohio State just took over and by the 4th quarter it seemed as the
Navy team was done. Temple comes into the game with momentum for the program in
beating a SEC team. It is drawing the most hype the program has seen in years.
They beat a Vanderbilt team that was flat out “Bad”. The team had no
quarterback heading into the season and ended up looking pathetic on national television.
The game was actually close until turnovers that turned into major points. This
game will be played tough but Reynolds and the Navy team will be poised to get
a key first win for the navy team. Although, temple has an exciting QB, Navy
is by far the best Team. Navy is hungry, while temple will have a little
hangover coming into the game. Navy by 10.
will be a rematch of last year when BYU beat Texas 40-21. I love how BYU plays
every year with strong defense and strong run game. Texas is a program that has huge question
marks surrounding it, as the Hire of Coach strong was not a popular one. The
team does possess talent and most of the talent resides in their running backs
and athleticism on defense. Texas will be without starting quarterback Ash, but
I believe the back-up Swoopes will be adequate. The team will hang on their
dual running backs and Defensive schemes. Most say this is a revenge game for
Texas, but I think it is more than revenge. This is a Statement game for the
team, program, and most importantly, Coach Strong. This game is HUGE for the first year coach. He
will put a great scheme together and have the team ready to play!
Tech + 11
This is an
interesting game because of many reasons. It will be a home game for the Ohio
State football team facing a Virginia Tech team that is going under the radar.
Ohio State possess top notch talent, however they are still getting in groove
with new QB Barrett. Virginia Tech has a new quarterback under reigns, which I
believe may be a good thing. The last quarterback was a turnover machine and
cost to many turnovers. I feel V-Tech will play Ohio State strong because of
their superb and partially unknown defense. Defensive Coordinator Foster will
create a deadly scheme going into the game. It was not just how Barrett
struggled against navy, but it was more about how out of rhythm he was. I
question whether or not he is truly ready to go against one of the best
secondaries in the country. If Virginia Tech can get some type of run game
going, this could be a big upset Saturday night.
rolls into the year with Matt Mauk at quarterback. He is an ultra dynamic
player and exciting to watch. He is probably the closest thing to Johnny Manziel.
He brings energy and excitement to the offensive side of ball for the tigers.
The defense lost a lot of great players to the NFL last year, but they still
carry excellent players in the front seven. Toledo is a team that has a
transfer quarterback from Alabama, which he never really played. Toledo does
have a powerful offensive line, in which they like to pound running back Kareem
hunt and which allows them to throw over the top. This game will be controlled
at the line of scrimmage. I believe the Missouri front seven will be able to hold
down the run game and offense of Toledo. The biggest key of the game will be
the Missouri offense moving the ball down the field with Mauk making huge
Hey guys I've been on Covers
for a couple of years, but had never posted anything during the football
season. I'll be posting some picks every week. Looking forward to checking
everyone else’s plays and opinions this season. GL everyone!!
RUTGERS WASHINGTON ST OVER 62
Game should be high
scoring with both teams bringing in powerful offenses. Washington State in the
air will be a nightmare for the Rutgers secondary. Halliday is cocky and
arrogant Quarterback. He will be looking to score every play. Rutgers also possesses
an offense that is strong on the ground with two running backs that are studs.
Washington state defense will have a hard time slowing them. Nova is also no
slouch for the Scarlet Knights. I can see this game easily getting into the
I think this
is an interesting game when looking at it. I believe Penn state has a lot of
unneeded hype for this game. Coach Franklin will be great for Penn state in the
future. However, entering his first season I think they could struggle. Hackenberg
was solid as a freshman last year, but the lost of his best receiver to the
draft will hurt big time for him. Also, the Penn state defense is not as strong
as it has been in the past, with the lack of depth really starting to show up.
Central Florida did lose Bortles and Storm, but that won’t matter for their
offense this game. The Central Florida team will be able to gather up some points.
I think it comes down to the UCF defense. The defense is big, strong, and fast.
They will keep Hackenberg and the offense in check all game.
I love CSU
ability to score points and to move the ball on Colorado. The only real
weakness would be its offensive line. Grayson will have plenty of receivers to
throw to and light up the scoreboard against a weak buffalo defense. Colorado
does possess a young Qb, who has tremendous talent and potential which could
keep them in the game for a while. I think comes down to CSU talent on offense
and I think they manage to get a couple of stops on defense.
I love the LSU
tigers, but I feel they are being over hyped just a little. They have great athleticism
and plenty of running backs. They probably will have the best freshman running
back since AP in 2004. However, I feel the adjustment of the new quarterbacks
will hurt and slow the transition. Offensive Coordinator Cam Cameron rolls with
a Pro-style scheme with young and inexperienced quarterbacks that could create
some unwanted errors by the offense. Of course, I could be wrong as both
Quarterbacks for LSU have tremendous talent. They very well could be studs in
the game. Wisconsin comes in with solid running backs as well and maybe the
best running back in the country in Gordon. The offensive line is powerful, and
I think the choice of McEvoy at QB is a positive sign. McEvoy is a big dual
threat QB that can make some plays with his feet. Both defenses will not be either
team’s strength in my opinion. Tough choice, but I’m going with Gordon and the
experience offensive line over the inexperienced QB’s of LSU.
