That’s more like it: I’m back to that level of prognosticating mediocrity that I know so well. The college ranks found me at 1-2 last week, dropping me to 21-16 on the season, while the NFL had a less-than-favorable 6-8 mark, leaving me at 78-55 on the year.
No. 7 Ohio State at No. 21 Michigan
I hate having to pick one of these two teams to win because both are among my most-hated schools in the world. The only good news about this game is that it’s pretty irrelevant in terms of the BCS since Ohio State lost last weekend to Illinois. Look for Michigan to win in what is likely Coach Lloyd Carr’s final game at home.
No. 23 Kentucky at No. 7 Georgia
Georgia will avenge last year’s defeat, although I truly hope I’m wrong.
No. 6 West Virginia at No. 22 Cincinnati
West Virginia has to be kicking themselves in their collective ass for losing earlier this year. That one loss is all that’s standing between them and the No. 1 ranking. They’ll continue to release their anger on Cincy.
No. 17 Boston College at No. 15 Clemson
Who cares? Flipping a coin … Clemson.
