Wright or Wrong Picks

I have been waiting all year for this weekend! Miss Coach has been giddy with anticipation of her new job on picking the winners of this years college and high school area games. After reviewing the crystal ball she has espoused the following information. At the high school level she has Crisp County over Turner, Hawkinsville easing by Wilcox, Americus escaping with a win at the “grove”, Fullington gets the win over Griffin Christian and Crisp Academy takes one from Crosspointe Academy.

In college Miss Coach aka “Pooh” says that Oklahoma will top Houston and LSU will win big over Wisconsin. She really thinks that USC will be vastly improved this year but that they might want to kiss a rattlesnake rather than play Alabama, Tide Rolls! The Fighting Irish have been good the last few years and there is no need to expect them to be down this year. However, Texas will bounce back sometime and there is no better time than on a Nationally televised Sunday night game at home as an underdog, hook’em horns! I t maybe on a neutral field in Orlando but Florida State should make a statement with this game.

Kansas St. will lose to Stanford and the “giant killers  “ App. State won’t have enough magic to beat Tennessee. UCLA will lose to Texas AM and Charlotte will be eaten alive by Louisville. Kentucky should handle Southern Miss and look for Vanderbilt to beat South Carolina. The Miami Hurricanes will smash Florida AM and the Duke Blue Devils will go 1-0. In the battle of the Tigers, Clemson and Auburn that is all eyes are on the #2 ranked Clemson Tigers to go back to the playoffs. Not so fast says Miss Coach even though she and I neither one are Auburn fans; she bought the hype War Eagles by 3. That brings us to the Georgia Bulldogs. Now granted North Carolina is a ranked team and deservedly so but Georgia according to all the experts both real and self made has all the ball players any team could ever want and have for 15 years. All Georgia needed was a coach. So the Bulldog nation ran Mark Richt to his Alma Mater and now they must face the tar Heels all on their own. The Dawgs have a new coach in Kirby Smart and loads of talent

they should win this game easily. Now last week our efforts in high school were at best average but then Miss Coach was nervous her first time and all picking that is and she went 3 and 2. I believe she will improve dramatically this week.13095837_1275660179114887_3750443400484456471_n20160101_184747(0)
