And HERE is the Kickoff

It is that time of year again and all the D-1 college football teams are getting ready to play their bowl games. Well not all of them but a vast majority of them and at least one has a losing record. I will attempt to pick the winners but since I haven’t watched the San Antonio Texas Road Runners or the Idaho “potatoe heads “ Vandals and at least ten more teams play this year; a stab at it is all yall are getting.

I ask Ms. Coach for help but she said, I am disinclined to acquiesce to your request. I am therefore all alone on this endeavor. So starting with the games on December 17th and moving forward I will list who my crystal ball tells me has the best chance of winning.

Look for New Mexico, Houston, Central Florida, App. State, Southern Miss, Tulsa, Western Kentucky, BYU, Colorado St, Old Dominion, Navy, Troy, Middle Tenn, Miss. State, Boston College, Vanderbilt and Army should get the W. I have never in my life even mentioned the words Old Dominion and bowl game in the same sentence, this should be embarrassing.

Also Temple, Washington St., Boise State, Pittsburgh and Utah should get the wins as well. As for Miami vs. West Virginia who knows but I’m leaning on Mark Richt. Texas Am, South Florida, Arkansas, Oklahoma St and the Georgia Bulldogs will also slip by with a victory. NC is good but the boy wonder at Stanford will run wild and Cardinals win. Tennessee wins just because they have better players because their coaching is horrendous. I think Harbaugh is leaving and his players feel a let down Seminoles win in the Orange Bowl. Ga. Tech, Louisville, Alabama, Ohio St., Florida and USC get big wins. I think Western Michigan is special but the Cinderalla season ends win they play Wisconsin. Look for Oklahoma to put a damper on the War Eagles bowl hopes. Wow1 I feel like I just gave birth!!! That was a lot prognosticating. Who wins the National Championship, well whoever plays Alabama is going to lose.joejoe-4-copy
