September 18th - College Football Picks Against The Spread

Interesting slate of games in college football today with Notre Dame at Michigan State my favorite game on the board to watch as Brian Kelly takes his Irish on the road for the first time in his career at ND. I am a fan of Kelly as a coach but the team he currently has is not the team he will win big with when he has a chance to recruit for a couple of seasons. I look for Michigan State to play with emotion and to feed off of a huge home field advantage tonight.

Kap's Picks

Air Force +17.5 vs Oklahoma
Texas -3 over Texas Tech
Northwestern -6.5 over Rice

Top Play

Michigan State on the money line over Notre Dame. If this line drops below 3 then lay the points but 3.5 is questionable as the half point could beat you.


Indian -13.5 over Western Kentucky

Also, here are the picks from a very respected college football expert. A man I call Mr. BCS.

Arkansas +2 over Georgia
North Carolina - 1.5 over Georgia Tech
Florida -14 over Tennessee
Washington +3 over Nebraska
LSU -7.5 over Mississippi State

Greatest Touchdown Ever

If you've never seen this video, you've got to check this out.  One of the most wild plays I've ever seen in football, without a doubt.  Enjoy and forward on to your friends.  I've seen this many times, and can't get enough.

I Have Seen The Light....The Bowl System Has to Stay

I have been among the more vocal critics of the BCS since its inception because there have been several instances where an undefeated team has been left out of the national championship game because of the computers that determine BCS rankings.

I have tried to formulate a playoff proposal that would allow everyone in the country a shot at winning the national title, but after looking at several different scenarios from a "Plus One" to a 4, 8, and even a 16 team playoff, I have come to realize that such a system would do irreparable harm to the tradition-filled bowls season.

Let's look first at the college football regular season, which is without a doubt the most compelling of any regular season in American sport. Lose just one game, and your shot at a title could be gone. That means a team better be prepared to play each and every week. That also means that fans will be locked on every play of every game all season long knowing that one bad game can erase a season of outstanding play.
