All right sports fans, I’m bringing them back.
From the depths of The Oracle’s archives come the Pigskin Picks.
Here is where four people go public with their picks on a few college football games. So go ahead and scribble down your crummy little picks and check them against mine. You will be disappointed.
Joining me weekly will be The Oracle’s Editor in Chief Adam Becker, former EIC Ryan Meehan and Managing Editor Olga Robak.
In time, there will be space for a guest pick. Wild rumors are already being spread as to who some of the guests might be.
And the winner is: Readers will have a shot at weighing in as well. Just shoot an email to Oraclepicks@yahoo.com tonight by 8:00 with your picks for a chance at a prize. Include your name, academic standing, major and a personal statement as to why you are going to win the contest. The winner will be recognized here in next week’s installment. Next week we will name a prize for whoever picks the most winners throughout the season.
Lock of the week: USF isn’t too far removed from Division I-AA; it moved to Division I-A in 2001. But the Bulls have come too far and are attracting way too much talent to lose to Tennessee Tech. I say blowout.
What were you thinking? Almost everyone has the same picks this week, making the tiebreaker all the more important. Olga picked USF to beat the Golden Eagles by a field goal, leading me to question whether she understands the difference between Division I-A and I-AA. These are not battery sizes, Olga.
Olga says: When deciding who will win the big FSU vs. Miami game, there is a lot to factor. But Olga thinks she has it figured out.
It isn’t a coincidence that Hurricane Frances postponed the first scheduled meeting, according to Olga, it’s a sign.
“They are called the Hurricanes,” she said. “So if the game is not postponed again they have to win.”
Thomas picked USF over Tennessee Tech with a score of 30-3, Miami over FSU, Michigan over Notre Dame, and West Virginia over Central Florida.
Adam picked USF over Tennessee Tech with a score of 28-10, Miami over FSU, Notre Dame over Michigan, and West Virginia over Central Florida.
Olga picked USF over Tennessee Tech with a score of 17-14, Miami over FSU, Michigan over Notre Dame, and West Virginia over Central Florida.
Ryan picked USF over Tennessee Tech with a score of 42-3, Miami over FSU, Michigan over Notre Dame, and West Virginia over Central Florida.
