Weekly Picks – 2010 Season

Week 5 Game Pick Results

Every week I like to take a chance and push at least a couple picks beyond normal rationale.

It’s not a strategy that has paid off very often this year.

Last week, I selected ASU over Oregon State but the Beavers managed to hold off the Sun Devils, 31-28.

I also picked North Carolina State over Virginia Tech. It looked like a smart pick deep into the final frame. More >

Week 6 Game Picks

You won’t find many stray picks on our game grid this week. I’ve been back-and-forth on my BYU – San Diego State pick and decided to stick with the Cougars this week. Perhaps the zit’s been popped in Provo and the talent can start to gel as anticipated. The games that are veritable toss-ups in my mind are UCLA at Cal, Clemson at North Carolina, Michigan State at Michigan, and Pitt at Notre Dame. More >

Week 7 Game Picks

Another week’s picks and our herd mentaiity has waned a bit – it’s only evident in eleven of the 20 games. Apparently, I’m going way out on a limb by picking Wisconsin at home. Other than that, I’m a bit unsettled in going with Iowa over Michigan in Ann Arbor and Air Force over San Diego State. More >

Week 7 Game Pick Results

Air Force, South Carolina and Florida were unanimous picks to win and they all tanked on Saturday. Dienhart is still leading the pack, but he posted the worst weekly record of anyone this season. Ahern is closing fast with consistent selections week after week. More >

Week 8 Game Picks

The three most important games this week in the BCS bowl game picture are 1) LSU at Auburn, 2) Oklahoma at Missouri, and Wisconsin at Iowa. Every one of them could be a nail-biter … a Missouri win would rock the national title game implications since the Sooners are currently in the driver’s seat for one of the slots in Tempe. More >
