Well the wins keep coming and so do some surprises.  Last week this column and yours truly was 2-1 for your Vegas pleasures and 1-2 for your viewing pleasures.  My only loss against the spread came when Oklahoma threw away the real defensive game plan and subbed in the Scooby Doo one that was designed to give up 40+ points and lose by three points in the waning moments.  Mission accomplished.  For my surprise,  I was given some validation when Lincoln Riley made Oklahoma DC Mark Stoops walk the plank after the game. No surprises in my other two pick’ems.  I did pick Auburn to beat Mississippi St. but lose vs. the spread.  As I said in the column, it wouldn’t surprise me if Auburn lost.  Notre Dame vs. Virginia Tech went as planned.  I expected a comfortable win for the Irish and they got that.  Notre Dame is good folks.  Try not to be mad about it.  On to this week’s action.

Week 6! That doesn’t even seem right coming out of my mouth but here we are.  We are halfway through the college football season and flying like the speed of light. Weekly we are searching for someone or anyone to knock off the four Mount Rushmore of programs currently sitting atop the rankings in college football (Alabama, Clemson, Georgia & Ohio St.) A couple of those teams that may be poised to slide into a spot should their be a slip at the top are featured in this week’s column.  Last week,  you Vegas types were treated to profits with a 2-1 record as I picked point spread winners with West Virginia and Notre Dame.  I was right on all three games in terms of who was going to win but Ohio St. made things too interesting and was my only loss vs. the spread.  Overall in this column,  I am 7-2 vs. the odds and 8-1 picking straight up. So without further adieu, let’s get into the picking.

5 Big Things Week Four College Football: Frost Times in Lincoln, Ducks Can’t Stand Cards and Roll Mutha —- Tide.

With break-neck speed we accelerate through the college football season.  Each week we learn a little more about things we were so sure about after week one of action.  I told you all not to panic about Michigan and warned you all of the the height of the Tide in Tuscaloosa.  We were ready to throw the Texas program in the trash in August but come late September,  we are trying to wipe it clean of the spaghetti sauce and banana peels that may have landed on it.  For every answer each college football Saturday gives us,  it seems it to befuddle us with an equal amount of questions.  Have we even had upset Saturday yet?  Here’s what I saw in Week Four.

GridironStuds 3-for-3 Week Four College Football

Already a third of the way into the college football regular season and things are beginning to take shape.  Last week in this column I was good or bad depending on how you approach college football on Saturday.  If you just like to sit on your couch and know who will win the game,  then I wasn’t too good for you as I went 1-2 in that regard.  If you are one to have “a little action” on the games then I was your man.  While I may have not been right straight up about the Auburn vs. LSU game as I thought Auburn would pull it out,  I was right in a Las Vegas kind of way as LSU covered the number as an underdog.  I was also correct from that standpoint with Ohio St. over TCU.  Where I was wrong from every angle was with USC as they fumbled the rock on the road vs. Texas.  Let’s see what my fortunes bring this week.
