The College Football Holiday season is finally here and the BCO doesn't have time to give it it's proper due. That doesn't mean I wont' be drinking a lot of good beer and watching a shit ton of games.
Seriously the BCO is busy. Writing for another site, participating in a College Football Fantasy draft, brewing beer and then the season, leaves no time to blog. I had big plans but this lil thing called life picked up. I am sure I will get the time later to do stuff.
The Daily Rip Off is no more til the end of College ball. I will be doing a Weekly Rip Off of all the good things, I see out there on the web, I hope. The site I write for wants my column on Monday's so hopefully I can be creative and opinionated Monday thru Wednesday on here. In a week or 3, once I get a good schedule down, things will go better on here.
I will not forsake my viewing guide, that's my bread and butter and most read ... at least last year.
Anyone who wants to write something for the blog is more than welcome, just email me.
This fine Bayou Bengal site has every televised game on it. Remember they are Central time, so make time adjustments.
The games and picks. Doing straight up and against the spread this season. Striaight up gets their team color, spread gets +/- the points.
Game of the week is bama vs Klempson, it's now or NEVER for the Tigers.
|Thu 8/28||8:00||ESPN ||NCState||Souf Kackalacki (-12.5)|
|The Ole Ball Coach is slipping, lot harder to win when your roster isn't full of Florida talent, eh? Good news, this week it's the wolfpack, not the dawgs or gators. State ain't there yet. Decent start to the season.|
|Sat 8/30||noon||ESPN ||ECU (+9.5)||VT|
|Two beat up teams, one experienced, one very young and both motivated. It is going to be close and if the VT D doesn't show up and score, the Hokies may lose. ECU will pack the box and dare the young wideouts to beat them. A make or break game for the Hokies in the opener? |
|What looked to be beat down city, thanks to hooville's mass exodus of talent, somewhat lessens with Sanchez getting hurt and being gimpy. Makes not matter, the 5 td is now dwindled to 3 and change. Long live groan. |
|8:00||ABC ||bama (+5)||Klempson|
|Bama, champions of the Fulmer Cup have arrived. Thugs = talent. The tigers have 2 things going against them, Saban>Tommy and 4 brand new OL that can't block their D in practice. However QB, RB, WR, DL, Secondary ALL favors the Other white meat.|
|8:30||ESPN ||Ila-noise||Mizzou (+9)|
|The Zooker can recruit, no doubt about that but his roster isn't better than Mizzou's, so now he has to out coach them. Good news for him, he has 9 Big1+10 games after this loss. Mizzou has arrived if last season's record didn't show it, the po-po blotter this offseason did. |
|10:00||FSN ||UDUB (+14)||Oregon|
|John Locker, a mini Tim Tebow and bout the only damn thing the Huskies have, he sure would be perfect in the Oregon's spread. Check out the Duck's O, the funnest offense to watch in all of college. Enjoy this late nite Pac10 shootout.|
|Sun 8/31||3:30||ESPN ||UK (+4)||louis-vile|
|Not much for Sunday, save some Kentucky bad blood. Both teams lost a lot and the Cards were ASS last year. All things being even, take the home team.|
|Mon 9/1||4:00||ESPN ||Frezno St (+5)||RUTSgers|
|A BCO fave, Pat Hill's play anyone, anywhere attitude lands him in New Jersey. After 10 mins in Piscataway, he may rethink this notion. FSU-w is due win against a ranked team. Will the real Scarlet Knights please stand up. |
|8:00||ESPN ||UT (-7)||UCLA|
|Fat Fil fooled them again, not only is he staying in Knoxhole, he got a raise and an extension. Tenn the worst state for H.S. fb talent in the Souf, likes to play these Cali games for recruiting. Unlike last year, they'll win going away.|
