Week 4 Predictions

What's up! What's up! Last week was a little rough in my picks so let's see if we can improve here.

Missouri @ #9 South Carolina
South Carolina takes pride in their defense which is top notch. I find it hard to believe that Mizzou can move the ball effectively against the Gamecock defense. I also think S Carolina RB Marcus Lattimore has a huge game. I like the Gamecocks at home.

Baylor @ Louisiana-Monroe
Louisana Monroe is a good team and should not be over looked. After beating Arkansas in Little Rock and taking Auburn down to the wire the War Hawks have all the confidence in the world. I like Louisiana Monroe to perform well for their home fans. As much as it kills me to say this, Baylor goes down.

#22 Arizona @ #3 Oregon
Oregon is out of this world fast. It is hard to wrap your brain around the speed that this team has. I think Oregon runs Arizona out of the building. I like the Ducks. BIG.

#18 Michigan @ #11 Notre Dame
Notre Dame looked impressive against Michigan State last week. They have finally found a QB who fits in with the offense. It appears as though the Irish are back. But.......I am picking Michigan. I like Denard Robinson too much in this game.

#15 Kansas St. @ #6 Oklahoma
This game is intriguing to say the least. I am looking forward to seeing both of these teams testing each other. We will also see if Landry Jones can be the stone cold stud he has been predicted to be. As much as I love KState RB John Hubert (MIDWAY HIGH SCHOOL ALUM!) I think the Sooner pull it out at home.

#10 Clemson @ #4 Florida State
This is the game that has me pumped up! This can play a huge factor in the championship race. I really like Clemson's explosiveness on offenses. But Florida State looks poised to make a National Championship run. I am taking the 'Noles!

Week 3 predictions

What is up guys! Sorry I forgot to make my picks last week, I was extremely busy! With that being said here are my picks for Week 3.

#25 BYU @ Utah
I love BYU this year. I love the passing game and the physicality of the BYU offensive line. While I do like the fact that Utah QB Johnny Wynn is finally healthy, I have to take the Cougars.
#25 BYU 31 UTAH 17

#14 Texas @ Ole Miss
Texas has been showing a little bit of consistency these first few weeks. But those were against cupcake squads. I like the Longhorns to keep the train running full speed ahead. I am picking the Horns.
#14 TEXAS 35 OLE MISS 20

#1 Alabama @ Arkansas
After Arkansas choked last weekend to Louisiana Monroe it is hard to have faith in the Hogs. Arkansas QB Tyler Wilson is questionable for this game due to an injury last week. Bottom line is if Wilson plays Arkansas has a shot, but if not Bama will roll all over the Hogs. With that being said Alabama is just too good all around for the Razorbacks. Roll Tide in this game.

#18 Florida @ #23 Tennessee
This is one of the better games on Saturday. I am in love with Tennessee's offense especially QB Tyler Bray. Tyler Bray has the weapons to challenge for an SEC East title. I also think Florida isn't that all great-more pedestrian if you ask me. I expect the Vols to pull off the upset.

#2 USC @ #21 Stanford
USC has a great offense and Stanford's defense is stellar. The fact this game is in Palo Alto makes a huge difference. I still think USC will win but it will be closer than people think.
#2 USC 31 #21 Stanford 30

#20 Notre Dame @ #10 Michigan St.
It looks as if Notre Dame has finally found an identity. Michigan St has already had an identity of a killer run game. Im not too sure Notre Dame can keep up. I expect Sparty to wear the Irish down.

Week 1 College Football Predictions

Hey guys! Football is in the air and I couldn't be more excited! It's been way too long. Let's just dive right into the picks.

SMU vs. Baylor
It will be interesting to see Baylor QB Nick Florence in this game just to see if he can somehow fill in RGIIIs shoes. Also I am looking forward to seeing Texas transfer QB Garrett Gilbert as the SMU gunslinger. Very intriguing game but I like the Bears to take this one at home.

Georgia Tech vs #16 Virginia Tech
This is a great matchup. Keep a watch out for the Va. Tech defense against the Ga. Tech Triple Option. The Hokies just have too much speed and talent for the Jackets.

#9 South Carolina vs. Vanderbilt
South Carolina is a great team don't get me wrong but I really like where this Vandy squad is headed. They almost seem to be playing with a certain type of swagger. I like Vandy to burst onto the scene.

#24 Boise St. vs. #13 Michigan State
How will Boise State do without former QB Kellen Moore? I think it would have been a smooth transition if they didn't have to play the Spartans. The Spartans defense will have the freshman Boise QB on his toes. Mich St gets the win.

#14 Clemson vs. Auburn
Clemson is a legit team in every position. I really don't think Auburn will be able to hang with them. Auburn is just too inexperienced and have too many questions on offense. I like the Tigers.

#8 Michigan vs #2 Alabama
Denard Robinsons speed vs. The might Bama defense. I really love this matchup. Alabama is pretty young on defense but boy are those youngsters talented! I like the Tide.

JFish Preseason Top 25

The JFish Preseason Top 25

I'm back!!! College Football season is just around the corner and I'd like to give you guys my
preseason College Football Top 25!

25. Utah- QB Jordan Wynn is back from injury. I like the Utes to perform well.

24. Boise State- Kellen Moore is gone but they have depth at every other postion.

23. Florida- They were immature last year and I like them to come out with a chip on their shoulders.

22. Stanford- Incredible Offensive Line I just don't know how they will fill Andrew Lucks shoes.

21. Texas- Great defense, superb runningbacks, I just don't know if they can produce consistency from the QB position.

20. Nebraska- RB Rex Burkhead is a freak. I also like QB Taylor Martinez to grow up.

19. Wisconsin- Lost QB Russell Wilson but Maryland transfer Danny O' Brien will carry the team.

18.Virginia Tech- 9 starters return from the same team that went to the Sugar Bowl a year ago. I like them to have a good year.

17. Oklahoma State- Shaky QB situation but they have a stud RB in Joseph Randle.

16. Ohio State- New coach Urban Meyer will have the Buckeyes on the right track. I also like QB Braxton Miller.

15. Kansas State- QB Collin Klein is the heartbeat of this team and will have them playing great ball.

14. TCU- QB Casey Paschal grew up last year and I expect a breakout season for the youngster.

13. Michigan State- Fantastic RB core but they have lost leader QB Kirk Cousins.

12. Clemson- Taj Boyd, Andre Ellington, and Sammy Watkins are back. They also play most of their
toughest games at home.

11. South Carolina- Best RB in the country in Marcus Lattimore but they have no QB.

10. West Virginia QB Geno Smith is the best Quarterback nobody talks about. With all the speed the Mountaineers have I expect big things as they join the Big 12.

9. Oregon- RB Kenjon Barner is back as well as RB De'Anthony Thomas. They also have a cupcake schedule. I like the Ducks.

8. Oklahoma- QB Landry Jones is back but OU has had of the field trouble with players which is why I don't have them as high as the would have been.

7. Michigan- QB Denard Robinson returns from a 11-2 season. Don't be surprised if the find themselves in title contention.

6. Arkansas- Tyler Wilson is back and Knile Davis is returning from injury. Lethal backfield.

5. Georgia- QB Aaron Murray has finally grown up and with a stellar defense to back him up he will explode.

4. Florida State- They have had incredible recruiting classes in 2011 & 2012. I think it will pay them dividends for the Seminoles. I think they splash on the scene.

3. Alabama- Alabama loses Trent Richardson but has a returning QB AJ McCarron who is as cool as a

2. LSU- Great Defense as always and they finally have a QB that is capable to lead the team.

1. USC- They are off of sanctions and have College footballs best QB in Matt Barkley. It's hard to not like the Trojans this year.

The Final 4

What is goin' on peeps! It is the Final 4 weekend and I would like to share some of my predictions on the games.

1 Kentucky vs 4 Louisville
Louisville is an interesting team and are difficult to figure out. They don't play good defense, they aren't the most athletic team, rebounding is pitiful, and they really are an off and on team shooting the 3 ball. But they just somehow find a way to win. I honestly have no clue how they win games but they is very strange. Kentucky on the other hand does everything well and is hard to game plan for. This game will come down to Louisville making Kentucky turn the ball over. Louisville can somehow beat Kentucky tonight if they play the game of there lives. But I don't see that happening. I am taking the Wildcats.

2 Ohio State vs 2 Kansas
These 2 teams will be displaying some of the best big men in the game. Jared Sullinger and Thomas Robinson are athletic freaks. These teams are very similar in play, control the ball and feed it to the big guys inside. This game will come down to who can shoot the ball the better. Ohio St features a spot on Point Guard, Aaron Craft, who will take over this game. But with Bill Self coaching the Jayhawks I like them to win.

Enjoy the games!
