Oooh college ball. I could give to shits ha! Good luck on your predictions though.

Bowl games can be tough to pick cause you never know how motivated the teams are. Sometimes we forget that the players are still 18 to 21 year olds and they can be easily distracted. Or they can get bored easily sitting in a motel room in a dump like Shreveport.

They should rename the Emerald Bowl with SC and BC the "Elitist Bowl" haha ;-)

Admit it Doc, it hurt you just a little bit to pick Florida, didn't it?

Four Dinners said...

I have no idea - and it's probably safer that way...;-)

Doc said...

Absolut, Nah I pick with my head (except for the FSU pick - Bobby has to win his last game right?) and Florida should roll - I just want to make good and sure it's Tebow's FINAL college game.

Dianne said...

so let me get this right
there are games involving college students and having something to do with bowls?

Mandy said...

Not too good of a start to the picks, huh? Sheesh...By the way great pic on the right in the bar. I think it should be your Twitter picture!

I think you are wrong about the Rutgers game. I am from Rutgers and my high school team can beat those guys.
