College Football Week four - 9/23/seventeen

September 28, 2017
After a rollercoaster of touchdowns and turnovers from previous night’s Rams Niners sport, it is time to preserve that substantial scoring momentum heading into the weekend for some university football. Now, complete disclosure, I’m an NFL better by way of and by means of, but there’s something about the young, energetic, and psychological character of higher education football that retains me coming back again for much more and brings about me to drop money Saturday right after Saturday. But putting that aside, let’s search in excess of some previews for the weekend.

Before getting to the video games, I need to consider a moment to categorical my disappointment after the titillating first two school football weekends. Do not get me improper, I definitely fucking love coming back into college football on Labor Working day weekend with a Saturday full of prime pet matchups, but there is a specific emotion of emptiness when we strike Months 3 and four and have 2 or 3 top 25 match ups. We can’t win ‘em all, but what the fuck?

Searching at the matchups this weekend, there a handful that adhere out as either gimme’s or total Vegas traps. I am nevertheless selecting.

Starting with the NC Condition Wolfpack heading down to Tallahassee to engage in the Seminoles. At the moment, the Noles are twelve.five pt favourite, which seems way also fucking great to be real. Because of to the hurricanes coming up from the Caribbean, the Seminoles have not performed given that Week one in their loss to the Tide. Like a caged animal, watch for them arrive out of the gates sizzling and slaughter the Wolfpack. As McConaughey mentioned in Two For The Income - “Everyone understands you do not mess with a man who just misplaced his dog” - I consider it is pretty fucking apparent you do not mess with a group right after a natural fucking catastrophe. Just take the Noles: -twelve.five.

On the otherside of that Week one match up in Atlanta, we have Alabama heading up to Nashville to perform Vanderbilt. Now, I think everybody is aware Vandy is the youngest brother in the loved ones of SEC faculties, but with an undefeated three- report and fresh off a top twenty five earn in excess of the Kansas Point out Wildcats, they’re starting up to show they’re the true deal. Nevertheless, being the youngest brother in that SEC household, it’s higher time their luck ran out. As 18.5 house canine to the Tide, it seems somewhat tempting to just take the details right here, but with an opponent the likes of which they have not seen nevertheless this yr, I’d be careful just before getting the property staff. Count on the Tide to get up early and pound the Commodores with their protection. Alabama -18.five all the way.

Refreshing off a reduction to Clemson, Louisville will have an easy residence match towards the Kent Point out Golden Flashes. (aspect note: the fuck is a Golden Flash? One of the stupidest fucking mascots in the NCAA) Expect an complete slaughtering, even so, be careful off the 44 position unfold in this game. Sure, I think Louisville could pull this off if they enjoy like champions, but as we observed in their 7 days 1 and 2 match ups, Louisville has a difficult time pulling away from groups they need to crush. Take the points. Kent Point out +44.

Now for an additional disaster team: Miami Hurricanes. Only having performed 1 sport due to the storms hitting Florida, The U is completely ready to demand out of the gates. Enjoying at property against Toledo, Miami will have some great ammunition to consider on the Rockets (yet another fucking silly mascot) and crush the 13.5 point unfold. Although the o/u sixty one.5 line is small little bit far more shakey, it is risk-free to say that the Canes will run all more than the Rockets this weekend in their first match considering that Week 1. Miami -thirteen.5.

For the final university pick of the 7 days, let’s search at the best match up of the weekend - Ga, Mississippi St. On the highway, Overlook St will have a wonderful prospect to present why it’s 37-7 earn above the LSU Tigers was not an anomaly. They're the real deal. With that mentioned, Ga isn’t a doormat staff by any extend of the word. Having traveled up to Notre Dame and profitable in a fantastic shoot out, the Dawgs have shown they will be a single of the prime, if not the best, contenders for the SEC East. Even so, as a four.5 point favorite at residence, I’m likely to have to take the Bulldogs out of Mississippi to include their side of the distribute. This’ll be a wonderful match with UGA pulling off a close win, but I really don't see them covering for far more than a area purpose. Mississippi Condition +four.5.

Free select for Friday night's sport between Virginia and Boise State: Just take Boise State -12.five.
