Raise your hand if you thought Auburn would beat LSU if it allowed only 23 points. Ok. Yes. Ok. Thank you. Yes, I see that hand! Good! That’s a heap of folks. Well, we were WRONG! So be it. Auburn lost a football game. On the road. To the Number one team in the country. Two road losses to top ten teams. 6-2. Not bad. … Continue reading Week Ten SEC Picks: The Continuing Saga of Old Yellow
Howdy howdy, there friends and neighbors, AND ALL you SEC college football fanatics! We are one wild and crazy lot! Hooo Wee! Hit’s about to get gooooood !

We got ourselves one big, … Continue reading SEC Week Nine Picks: Pork Skinned and Corn Dogs
Let me begin by congratulating the University of South Carolina on its upset of the Trembling Chihuahuas ($1 to Jeff Schultz). Will Muschamp truly needed that signature win and now, maybe, he won’t have a stroke on the sideline, hopefully. It’s a relatively benign docket of clashes scheduled for this weekend. The Third Saturday in October has become The Third Meh-Day in October. But, we … Continue reading Week Eight SEC Picks: The Second Half Begins!
Once again ladies and gentlemen, and children of ALL ages, the Auburn Tigers will participate in the primo game of the week in Southeastern Conference play. The first Auburn-Florida game I ever attended was on November 2, 1963. Highlights later. Last week I predicted five of six games correctly, and that brought my season stats to 43-9 and a percentage of .826. Kentucky did not … Continue reading Week Six SEC Picks: Giggin’ the Gators
There are only six games, on the slate, involving teams from the Southeastern Conference in Week Five. The marquee game, again, finds our Auburn Tigers as a participant. The Tigers take on the Mississippi State Bulldogs in Jordan-Hare Stadium, on Pat Dye Field, at 7 PM Eastern time and will be televised on ESPN (No U, no 2, etc). We will make our pick on … Continue reading Week Five SEC Picks: Time to Bully the Dogs
Yessiree bobby! There will be two games, involving SEC teams, in which both teams are ranked. Number three Georgia will host number seven Notre Dame and number eight Auburn travels to College Station to battle Texas A&M. I will get to those two picks later on. Let me update you on how proceedings have gone through three weeks of the 2019 college football season. Last … Continue reading Week Four SEC Picks: The Dawgs and the Dame; Aggies and Auburn, and MORE!
Last week I was dang near perfect. The lone miss was my upset pick of Vandy over Purdue. That’s ok. You gotta pick upsets. My season total now stands at 22-4. That computes to an .846 percentage. I’ll take it and let’s rock! No time to tarry as Week Three is up-on us! But, first of all, this… AT&T/Direct TV/Uverse is making noise about not … Continue reading Week Three SEC Football Picks
I was 9-3 in Week One Picks last week. That’s 75% but not great for what is, typically, a 85% to 90% week, as there are always more than a few mismatches on opening weekend. Tennessee-Georgia State (that powerhouse from downtown Atlanta which has only been playing football for about 10 years) was, on paper, was one of those games. The mighty Panthers threw a … Continue reading Week Two SEC Football Picks
We got a little taste of SEC football last weekend when Florida squeaked past Miami in one of the YOU-gliest football games I have ever seen. It actually hurt my eyes to watch that debacle. One team won, Florida, and one team lost, Miami, and that was about all you can say about it. The final tally was, Gators 24, Miami 20. I had the … Continue reading Week One SEC Football Picks
SEC Media Days have now come and gone. I listened to all 14 coaches, their spiel and the questions they answered, and I was impressed with every coach and what he had to say about his team. They all seemed to have a vision and a master plan for their respective squads. And the league’s coaching fraternity appears to be a very strong group, top … Continue reading SEC MEDIA DAYS – RANDOM TAKES
