I am off to an embarrassingly bad start!! The upsets I picked didn't, the ones I didn't, did and SMU decided to not show up!

I went to the UCF bowl game. That was fun! Rained the whole first half, sun came out, then temps dropped quickly. Football weather! I had a poncho. UCF looked pretty good and definitely wanted to be there. The future looks good into 2020 for UCF. Hope we can come back out on top of the conference. Glad I went to the game. Live football is always better than couch surfing. Go Knights!

It official!! The U has a record-setting offense! As in record-setting bad. Never before in the 34 year history of the Independence Bowl had a team not scored a single point. F-ing pathetic.

The only thing more embarrassingly bad than my picks, is the Hurricane's offense.

congrats to Skip Holtz and winning his 6th bowl game in a row, went 10-3 and shut out the Miami Hurricanes. LaTech 14 Miami 0. Hopefully you guys weren't thinking Miami was going to win this. I've watched and kept up with LaTech all year. They would have won C-usa if didn't have to suspend players. Miami finishes 6-7 and scratching their head if the should have let that coach go to Temple and will be looking for a Quarterback in the off season.

Oklahoma shellshocked 49-14 at the half. Heisman winner Joe Burrow (hello dolphins) threw 7 Tds in the first half. Wha?!?

Ohio State proved they deserved a shot in the dance. Not sure Clemson has the firepower to beat Tigers.

I wasn't either until I saw it. Ohio State got some tough calls but they got beat fair and square.

Went to the game. Surprisingly tough game. I give Va's QB a lot of credit for making things happen when things looked over. Tickets were 200 for me and son. 60 for ticket master extortion fee. 50 to park within walking distance. 12$ beers. 7$ pretzel and and $30 hat. I enjoyed it but the thought of that price tag will have to fade for me to get excited to go again.

Ouch. that is an expensive game. At least your team won! Would have made it worse if Gators lost.

I would like to believe that I would enjoy the spectacle regardless of who wins but Va was ranked low, they are ACC and that was the gators game to lose. I was glad they won.

Some good games yesterday. Minnesota over Auburn. Bama over Michigan. Oregon over Wiscy in the rose bowl (best game), Georgia over Baylor.

Cincinatti blew out Boston College. That wasn't even a game. Poor Indiana, how they let Tennessee come back in the final 5 minutes and score two TD's has to be a dagger in the heart.

Tennessee is snakebit. They have the talent and never get there. They got beat by themselves almost every game.

Going into the final game (LSU-Clemson) I ended up 26-12

26 wins and 12 losses on my picks. Not bad, not good.

Still going with LSU winning. But, i had them playing Ohio State. Ooops.

If Clemson wins that would be great as well. Hoping for a good game. This upcoming Monday night is championship game. 1/13.
