Are we smarter than a 12 year old?

Are we smarter than a 12 year old?

Wisconsin vs Oregon, USC vs Virginia Tech, LSU vs Oklahoma.  

 

On the Seth & Sean college football preview (Tuesday’s  at 7 on Blog Talk Radio – cheap plug), the two of us plus BSP college football expert Mike Pesesky made our championship game predictions.     Half of these choices ended up with more losses than the #8 team in the SEC.   Sigh.   Only two teams from above even made the BCS, and one qualified for its conference title due to the ineligibility of the two teams above them.   My cousin, Jacob Moore, has challenged our knowledge and picked each game.   To redeem the honor of Back Sports Page, Mike and myself have answered the challenge.   Very simple premise – pick games, no spread (I am not allowing my 12 year old cousin into the betting world.   That can wait until he is 18.).   A maximum of two sentences to describe the pick.  The two of us will pick games starting the 27th.   Any picks by Jacob prior to this will count only for him (He is 5-3 so far).   I now somewhat reluctantly present….Are 2 sports experts smarter than a 12 year-old?

Week 3 College Football Picks

Written by Seth Kamens on Friday, 14 September 2012. Posted in College Football

Week 3 College Football Picks

Seth – Regardless of me burying my noble adversary in Week 2 (and by burying, I mean eking out a 1 game triumph), I am embarrassed. As a proud graduate of the University of Maryland, there are certain things a Maryland grad never does. For instance, a Maryland grad never offers credit to Randy Edsall or Kevin Anderson. We are all firmly under the impression that the Harrison brothers will bypass Kentucky and Baylor to attend College Park (wrong sport, but I encourage you to Google). Most importantly, a Maryland grad cannot and will not offer credit to Duke in any capacity. So, naturally I chose the Devils, on the road, over a Top 25 team. As penance I will be drinking prairie fires for the next week.  

 

Mike – In full disclosure, I haven’t the slightest clue what a prairie fire is, but I am certainly intrigued by its potential implications on your ability to select games. With that said, last week was certainly a fluke and I look forward to redeeming myself in Weak 3. Yes, I said weak. It’s hard to characterize the upcoming slate of games in any other fashion.

 




College Football Picks - Week 2

College Football Picks - Week 2

Mike:  We all dream of the day where we can stick it to our bosses and beat them in something, anything! I’ve finally gotten the chance to realize this dream.

Over the course of the season, BSP co-owner Seth Kamens and I will pick games each week for the right to call himself… The guy that picked the most games right. And forever live in immortality! Or something heroic like that.

Seth:   Mike – well articulated.  You are a true representation of Che Guevara, Tom Joad and Ferris Bueller – rebelling against the big bad 1%. 

Without further ado, here… we… go.

College Coaches Looking to Stamp Program in Year 3

Five 3rd Year Coaches Look to Put Their Stamp on Their Respective Program

The climate of college football is without a doubt changing. From the potential four-team playoff to rampant realignment, the college football landscape looks much differently than it did just four or five years ago. The faces patrolling the sidelines have changed over the past few years too and many at major programs. But for many head coaches, it is the third year at the school that the program really begins to mirror the head man's shape and vision for it. In his third year at Alabama, Nick Saban had the Crimson Tide hoisting the Sears Trophy for the first time since 1992. The same can be said for Saban's successor at LSU, Les Miles. For a number of coaches, year number three is right around the corner and for some, the pressure to perform is now. Here is a look at five head coaches in their third year at major programs that will be looking to put their stamps on their respective programs in 2012:

How will Mizzou, Texas A&M Football Fare in SEC?

Missouri, Texas A&M set to take on SEC

How will Mizzou, Texas A&M Football Fare in SEC?

As conference realignment has run rampant throughout collegiate sports, the football conference that has produced the last six national champions has expanded as well. In 2012, former Big XII schools, Missouri and Texas A&M will join the Southeastern Conference. Missouri finished its final season in the Big XII with an 8-5 record and a victory over North Carolina in the Independence Bowl. Texas A&M, began 2012 ranked 8th in the country, but finished just 7-6.

Fixing the BCS, Once and for All

How the NFL's Playoff System Can Serve as a Role Model for College Football

Fixing the BCS, Once and for All
Although I have advocated the Bowl Championship Series in the past, citing that college football is distinct from other sports and argued therefore that a traditional postseason tournament is not suitable, given the mess caused by #2 Alabama beating #1 LSU in the BSC National Championship Game and #3 Oklahoma State defeating #4 Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl, it is readily apparent that the BCS system is broken and must be replaced with a playoff system that will more assuredly determine the best team in college football.

College Football at a Glance

Championship Week Offers Plenty of Headlines

‘Tis the season for giving, and numerous college football headlines are offering up generous portions of water cooler fodder this holiday season.

 

Rinse and Repeat

We are on the brink of the final college football weekend of the regular season, and depending on who you talk to, this last pageantry-laden Saturday may offer up a grand total of zero games with national championship implications. If you believe what all of the experts are saying, no matter what happens in Atlanta on Saturday, LSU and Alabama will face off in the next Game of the Century…Of the Week…Of Something.
