Round 2 Of Week #4...Yes, It Gets Better!

By Amsinger - September 17, 2007


Many of you are taking to my blog. I'm glad you've become addicted. Aside from the millions I make for writing, "Off Prompter," hearing from my loyal fans is truly what makes this so worth while. Therefore, I'm ready to unveil my latest round of picks for week four in college football.

Are you ready for some UPSET SPECIALS???

Mee too!

As always, this blog entry will provide picks for CUSA, Independents, Mountain West, Pac-Ten, SEC, Sun Belt and WAC. If you're raging mad because you can't find your favorite conference - TAKE A BREATH - and simply go back and read my previous post. There you will find my predictions for the ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten and MAC.

Once again, I'm trying to bounce back from my worst record of the young season...47-19.

Wish me luck!


CONFERENCE USA: 7-3 last week, 21-8 overall in this league.

OKLAHOMA - 45
Tulsa - 20


My Goodness! OU is GOOD! (scout.com)

*HC Todd Graham is on fire right now. After racking up 7 wins last year at Rice and starting off '07 with a sharp 2-0 record including an upset win over BYU, he could be the next great head coach. BUT...Oklahoma is one of the "Big Five" in college football. You know, the upper teir - USC, LSU, Florida, OU and West Virginia. After that handful, it sort of gets suspect. Keeping up with QB Sam Bradford and the vaunted running game of the Sooners will be impossible for the Golden Hurricane.

Bradford: 20-30, 260 yds, 3 TD, 1 INT
Murray: 14 carries, 128 yds, 2 TD
Patrick: 17 carries, 111 yds, 1 TD
Kelly: 6 catches, 120 yds, 2 TD

Smith: 32-55, 307 yds, 2 TD, 4 INT
Johnson: 8 catches, 145 yds, 1 TD

East Carolina - 24
W. VIRGINIA - 45


What Happened After the UNC Game? (scout.com)

*It bothers me when "experts" say West Virginia isn't a real contender for the national title. With three players possessing the talent of Pat White, Steve Slaton and Noel Devine - WVU is legit. ECU is an improving program, but if they can't handle Damion Fletcher and Southern Miss, the Pirates don't stand a chance against West Virginia.

White: 16-27, 247 yds, 1 TD, 1 INT; 16 carries, 177 yds, 2 TD
Slaton: 28 carries, 153 yds, 2 TD
Devine: 10 carries, 75 yds, 1 TD

Pinkney: 22-40, 243 yds, 2 TD, 4 INT; 7 carries, 31 yds
Henry: 6 catches, 106 yds, 1 TD

Marshall - 10
CINCINNATI - 31


WE ARE...falling apart? (herdzone.cstv.com)

*Brian Kelly is doing incredible things in Cincy. Only Troy Calhoun (Air Force) and Nick Saban ('Bama) are doing bigger things in their first year at their respective schools. Marshall is falling apart after losing a second half lead versus West Virginia two weeks ago.

Grutza: 23-36, 277 yds, 2 TD, 1 INT
Benton: 21 carries, 112 yds, 1 TD
Barwin: 6 catches, 95 yds, 1 TD

Rice - 6
TEXAS - 55


Wasn't that UCF Game Kinda Goofy...Mickey? (sioncampus.com)

*I almost called the upset of the year!!! I did say UCF would win last week against the Longhorns, but Texas squeeked it out. The ground game for Mack Brown's club did improve and I expect it to blow up against the short-handed Rice defense.

McCoy: 28-37, 305 yds, 4 TD, 1 INT; 8 carries, 75 yds, 1 TD
Charles: 21 carries, 187 yds, 2 TD

Memphis - 28
UCF - 31


You Go Over There and Read What Greg Is Saying About Us! (airbornecomatengineer.typepad.com)

*After almost beating the Texas Longhorns, the Knights are a LOCK to collect their first win at their new stadium. As many of you know, I've been very high on Memphis this year and I think they're improving, but after the fans in Orlando watched the LONGHORNS almost lose to their hometown team - they'll be out in full force to help the Knights continue what is becoming a breakout year.

Israel: 15-31, 185 yds, 2 TD, 1 INT; 10 carries, 54 yds
Smith: 33 carries, 193 yds, 2 TD

Hankins: 28-43, 277 yds, 3 TD, 3 INT

COLORADO ST. - 27
Houston - 24


Kyle Bell: "I will win it by myself if need be!" (coachhawkins.com)

*It's never easy picking a road team in CUSA. Teams in this league hold their turf well. The reason I'm taking the Rams is they're sooooo due!!! After going to overtime against rival Colorado and losing - giving CAL a heart-attack in Fort Collins and falling just a few points short, Sonny Lubick's team will not be denied by the Cougars. I am worried about CSU's pass attack with TE Korry Sperry out for the year. Still, RB Kyle Bell is a workhorse and he'll be the difference in this CUSA battle.

Hanie: 20-34, 247 yds, 1 TD, 1 INT
Bell: 35 carries, 155 yds, 2 TD
Walker: 7 catches, 118 yds, 1 TD

Keenum: 16-32, 163 yds, 1 TD, 3 INT
Alridge: 25 carries, 144 yds, 2 TD

SE Louisiana - 13
TULANE - 34


We Can Finally Smile! (tulane.edu)

*No stats provided until you beat a real opponent.

SMU - 10
TCU - 44


It's Incomplete Already (fansonly.com)

*Poor Mustangs. They don't have a prayer against a group of highly pissed Horned Frogs. Seriously, how in the WORLD did Air Force win that game? HC Gary Patterson is done thinking about the Falcons and now wants to make this year's battle for the "Iron Skillet" a statement game for TCU. Freshman QB Andy Dalton is about to become the star for TCU's offense for years to come. As for SMU, QB Justin Willis is becoming a ball-hog. He needs to share the pigskin more.

Dalton: 25-33, 294 yds, 4 TD, 1 INT; 9 carries, 53 yds, 1 TD
Christian: 6 carries, 43 yds; 8 catches, 128 yds, 2 TD

Willis: 22-45, 230 yds, 0 TD, 2 INT; 20 carries, 81 yds, 1 TD

Texas So. - 6
UTEP - 30


Fred Rouse: Getting a Second Chance (prepsports.tbo.com)

*Watch out for sophomore WR Fred Rouse. Remember this kid? He was labeled, "The next Randy Moss" by recruiting expert Tom Lemming. He went to Florida State and was arrested for breaking into Lorenzo Booker's apartment and stealing some of his possessions his freshman year. UTEP welcomed him with open arms and if the kid can keep his head on straight, could blow up in this league.

Vittatoe: 18-25, 258 yds, 2 TD, 0 INT
Thomas: 21 carries, 141 yds, 1 TD
Rouse: 5 catches, 92 yds, 1 TD


INDEPENDENTS: 3-1 last week, 10-2 overall.

MICHIGAN ST. - 34
Notre Dame - 10


Don't Leave! For the Love of God, Don't Leave! (media.scout.com)

*HC Mark Dantonio will celebrate with his team after this victory. Then he'll whisper to himself, "Man...is Notre Dame THIS bad???"

Hoyer: 20-27, 174 yds, 1 TD, 0 INT
Ringer: 25 carries, 193 yds, 2 TD
Caulcrick: 22 carries, 122 yds, 1 TD

No stats for the Irish, they don't have an offense.

Army - 10
BOSTON COLLEGE - 34


We're Missing Something... (scout.com)

*QB Matt Ryan is generating Heisman Hype in Chestnut Hill and for good reason. His performance last week on the road against a tough Georgia Tech defense was amazing. Throw in the ridiculous schedule for the Eagles (opening up against conference foes Wake and N.C. State BEFORE Georgia Tech) and it's even more impressive how well they've played under first year head coach Jeff Jagodzinkski. Speaking of first year head coaches, Stan Brock is keeping Army extremely competitive so far this season - and for that, he should be commended. Stan will have Army ready to play, but B.C. will be too much and pull away in the second half.

Ryan: 32-45, 358 yds, 3 TD, 0 INT
Whitworth: 15 carries, 83 yds, 1 TD
Challenger: 10 catches, 140 yds, 2 TD

Duke - 23
NAVY - 35


How Did We Lose to BALL STATE! (redraiders.com)

*I know! It isn't easy picking Duke games anymore! How in the WORLD did they beat Northwestern last week? I know - QB Thaddeus Lewis. This kid has the athletic ability to enhance the incredible experience (11 starters back) on offense for HC Ted Roof. Here's the bad news for Duke. The Northwestern game was an essential victory for the future of the program. You see, the remaining opponents for Duke all went to a bowl game last year. The Devils best chance at win #2 will be against Notre Dame November 17th. Now THAT is a slap in the face to the Irish.

Kaheaku-Enhada: 5-8, 68 yds, 1 TD; 14 carries, 125 yds, 2 TD
Ballard: 21 carries, 116 yds, 1 TD

Lewis: 17-32, 228 yds, 2 TD, 2 INT; 10 carries, 61 yds

Western Kentucky - 44
MIDDLE TENNESSEE - 48


We're the Blue Raiders, Correct. Great Question! (doubleazone.com)

*The Blue Raiders finally get in the win column! They deserve this after a grueling non-conference schedule that featured TWO top ten teams (Louisville and LSU). Expect sophomore RB Phillip Tanner to explode in this non-conference classic.

Craddock: 15-33, 236 yds, 2 TD, 2 INT
Tanner: 14 carries, 148 yds, 3 TD


MOUNTAIN WEST CONFERENCE: 3-4 last week, 14-9 overall in this league.

AIR FORCE - 31
BYU - 30


Is He Really Going to Let Me Throw? (fansonly.com)

*An instant classic! The Falcons end a three-game losing streak to the Cougars in PROVO! Just like Falcon players, I believe in first year head coach Troy Calhoun! Aside from Nick Saban, no coach has done more in their first three weeks at a new program. Last week's win over TCU wasn't the biggest story in my opinion...it was the stat sheet. QB Shaun Carney recorded a career high in passing attempts with 28 and tied his career high in completions with 17. His previous high was 22 attempts last season vs. Utah. Troy Calhoun wants to eventualy throw the rock constantly, at this pace - he'll accomplish that feat sooner than many expected.

Carney: 13-19, 163 yds, 2 TD, 0 INT; 20 carries, 106 yds, 2 TD
Ollis: 18 carries, 93 yds

Hall: 31-54, 328 yds, 3 TD, 4 INT
Collie: 8 catches, 173 yds, 1 TD

WYOMING - 20
Ohio - 17


Cowboy Ken Likes Wyoming Football Too! (theultimatehoopschallenge.com)

*Tough game to pick. The Bobcats are good at home under Frank Solich and Wyoming is fresh off a road loss against Boise State. The Cowboys are having a stellar season and may finish 9-3. QB Karsten Sween took two steps back the last two weeks and needs to bounce back for a 9 win season to become a reality.

Sween: 23-38, 218 yds, 2 TD, 2 INT
Moore: 14 carries, 71 yds
Seldon: 13 carries, 60 yds

COLORADO ST. - 27
Houston - 24


"Am I Dreaming? Are You Really Back?" (advancement.uh.edu)

*It's never easy picking a road team in CUSA. Teams in this league hold their turf well. The reason I'm taking the Rams is they're sooooo due!!! After going to overtime against rival Colorado and losing - giving CAL a heart-attack in Fort Collins and falling just a few points short, Sonny Lubick's team will not be denied by the Cougars.

Keenum: 16-32, 163 yds, 1 TD, 3 INT
Alridge: 25 carries, 144 yds, 2 TD

SMU - 10
TCU - 44


We Missed Celebrating (tcu.edu)

*Poor Mustangs. They don't have a prayer against a group of highly pissed Horned Frogs. Seriously, how in the WORLD did Air Force win that game? HC Gary Patterson is done thinking about the Falcons and now wants to make this year's battle for the "Iron Skillet" a statement game for TCU.

Willis: 22-45, 230 yds, 0 TD, 2 INT; 20 carries, 81 yds, 1 TD

Portland State - 14
SAN DIEGO ST. - 27


Guys! This Weird Feeling is Called Winning! (sdhoc.com)

*FINALLLLLLLY!!!! Poor Chuck Long, he didn't know what he was getting himself into when he left Oklahoma.

O'Connell: 26-40, 227 yds, 2 TD, 2 INT; 9 carries, 50 yds
Bornes: 13 carries, 61 yds, 1 TD
Mougey: 7 catches, 79 yds, 1 TD

Sacremento St. - 10
NEW MEXICO - 38


Never Satisfied! (abqtrib.com)

*About as easy of a win you can find for the Lobos who are fine-tuning their game for the confrerence slate next week.

Porterie: 24-34, 266 yds, 3 TD, 1 TD
Ferguson: 31 carries, 152 yds, 2 TD

UTAH - 30
UNLV - 17


Remember Who We Are! (blocku.com)

*There is no way Utah loses this game after their unthinkable performance in week three. The Rebels are hungry for a win after looking terrible against the high-powered offense of Hawaii. Which UNLV will show up? The Wisconsin Rebels? Or the Hawaii Rebels? Bottom line, both lost.

Grady: 29-43, 327 yds, 3 TD, 2 INT
Mack: 16 carries, 103 yds
Godfrey: 5 catches, 91 yds, 1 TD


PAC-TEN CONFERENCE: 6-4 last week, 20-7 overall in this league.

Arizona - 24
CALIFORNIA - 41


Can You HANG With Us? (wikimedia.org)

*I still think the Bears will win the Pac-Ten. Beating Tennessee on the road is still a great win, I don't care what the score was in Gainesville. QB Nate Longshore is only averaging 20 completions per game so far and DeSean Jackson only has 112 yards recieving in three games. Those stats will be inflated this week in Berkeley. The MVP of the Bears so far this season is clearly RB Justin Forsett. This senior is on pace to rush for 1500 yards!!! As for Arizona, QB Willie Tuitama had a big week three and is having very good season, unfortunately HC Mike Stoops can't generate a running game to keep safeties honest.

Longshore: 27-39, 330 yds, 2 TD, 1 INT
Forsett: 24 carries, 163 yds, 2 TD
Jackson: 7 catches, 141 yds, 1 TD

Tuitama: 30-53, 363 yds, 3 TD, 3 INT
Thomas: 9 catches, 157 yds, 2 TD

Washington St. - 16
USC - 35


Greg Thinks We'll Lose Twice This Year. Attack!! (intelliott.com)

*The USC passing game is suspect. ANYONE who has QB John David Booty as a Heisman frontrunner must be a Trojan fan. I understand the Trojans are all about their plethora of running backs, BUT at some point this untested receiving corp must prove it can provide the "big play." Keep in mind, Washington State lost by just six points last year in Pullman and have spent the offseason waiting for another crack at the nation's number one team.

Booty: 18-32, 173 yds, 1 TD, 2 INT
Gable: 10 carries, 92 yds, 2 TD
Johnson: 8 carries, 58 yds, 1 TD
Washington: 11 carries, 79 yds, 1 TD

Brink: 26-41, 235 yds, 1 TD, 3 INT

Oregon State - 17
ARIZONA ST. - 27


We Love Dennis Erickson! (asuwebdevil.com)

*What's been overlooked so far this season is the Arizona State defense. The Sun Devils are giving up a slim average of 10 points per game and are allowing under two yards-per-carry against the run. HC Dennis Erickson has created a Pac Ten sleeper in ASU and is doing a great job in the way he's used QB Rudy Carpenter. The offense isn't based around the Devils starting quarterback which means turnovers are down and Rudy is gaining confidence. Injured RB Ryan Torain will not play, but Keegan Herring is just as good - if not more well rounded. Oregon State will continue to struggle until they commit to Sean Canfield as their one and ONLY quarterback. Their are "starters" and "backups" - not "primaries" and "secondaries." The QB shuffle doesn't work...this game will be a perfect example.

Carpenter: 18-28, 177 yds, 1 TD, 1 INT
Herring: 24 carries, 141 yds, 2 TD; 5 catches, 68 yds

Canfield: 14-27, 208 yds, 0 TD, 2 INT
Bernard: 30 carries, 120 yds, 2 TD

OREGON - 41
Stanford - 20


We Could Beat You Wearing Pink Too! (newsday.com)

*When thinking of the Pac-Ten, three teams have shots at BCS Bowl Games. Oregon is one of them. The Ducks will blow this game wide open in the first half, leaving QB Dennis Dixon on the bench for the second. Stanford is making strides, slowly but surely.

Dixon: 13-21, 192 yds, 1 TD, 0 INT; 9 carries, 125 yds, 2 TD
Stewart: 14 carries, 104 yds, 1 TD
Williams: 5 catches, 82 yds, 1 TD

Washington - 20
UCLA - 31


Win One For Coach! Win One For Coach! (starwave.com)

*One week ago I thought this would be one of the best games in week four. It lost some serious luster. With Washington unable to generate any offense against Ohio State and UCLA getting embarrassed by Utah I had to think long and hard about this one. My conclusion is the Bruins are playing for their coaches job - and they know it. Washington isn't worried about the status of Ty Willingham and that element alone will be the difference in this one.

Olson: 21-38, 244 yds, 2 TD, 1 INT
Bell: 21 carries, 117 yds, 2 TD
Breazell: 7 catches, 119 yds, 1 TD

Locker: 18-33, 162 yds, 1 TD, 3 INT; 18 carries, 108 yds, 1 TD


SOUTHEASTERN CONFERENCE: 6-2 last week, 21-5 overall in this league.

FLORIDA - 45
Ole Miss - 10


Carry Us To Another Title Timmy! (wordpress.com)

*The easiest pick of the week. Tim Tebow is awesome.

Tebow: 22-29, 295 yds, 4 TD, 0 INT; 14 carries, 124 yds, 2 TD
Harvin: 9 catches, 150 yds, 2 TD

S. Carolina -3
LSU - 20


Why Are Ya'll Talking to Me? LSU Won! (msn.com)

*Not the blowout so many expect! Without WR Early Doucet (injury), the Tigers have a hard time spreading the field against the 2nd best defense in the SEC. QB Matt Flynn struggles for the Tigers and will be replaced in the second half by Ryan Perrilloux - who started last week and was amazing. Sounds like a quarterback controversy to me! South Carolina has a sub-par offense without LSU being their opponent. The Gamecocks offense may as well stay home.

Flynn: 14-28, 133 yds, 1 TD, 2 INT
Perrilloux: 6-8, 91 yds, 0 TD, 0 INT; 5 carries, 55 yds, 1 TD
LaFell: 8 catches, 120 yds, 1 TD

Mitchell: 12-25, 86 yds, 0 TD, 3 INT
Boyd: 23 carries, 85 yds

KENTUCKY - 44
Arkansas - 41


We WILL Win the SEC! Great Call Greg! (ukathletics.com)

*The magic continues! This game is a showdown between the NFL's #1 and #2 overall draft picks. Woodson and McFadden are incredible talents that will show up and put on a college football show. HC Houston Nutt is looking over his shoulder after this loss.

Woodson: 35-56, 388 yds, 4 TD, 2 INT
Little: 25 carries, 142 yds, 1TD
Burton: 10 catches, 187 yds, 3 TD

McFadden: 32 carries, 158 yds, 3 TD
Jones: 14 carries, 94 yds, 2 TD

Cox: 11-20, 105 yds, 1 TD, 2 INT
Burns: 5-8, 52 yds, 0 TD, 0 INT; 14 carries, 70 yds, 1 TD

Gardner-Webb - 10
MISSISSIPPI ST. - 23


New Talent Making an Impact at MSU! (msstate.edu)

*The Bulldogs don't have a quarterback, but they do possess a 3-1 record following this victory. After years of losing - HC Sylvester Croom can live without throwing the ball for awhile. RB Anthony Dixon is a workhorse and will run downhill all night long this weekend.

Dixon: 35 carries, 192 yds, 2 TD

Arkansas St. - 28
TENNESSEE - 42


Can I PLEASE Get More Than 2 Seconds To Throw The Ball! (knoxnews.com)

*Gotta be honest, thought about making this one an upset special (for one second, I promise). Tennessee returns home after the most embarrassing SEC loss in years. Problem is, Arkansas State is good! Almost beat Texas, dismantled SMU and will keep up with the Vols for three quarters. Tough times ahead for HC Phillip Fulmer, three of the next four opponents are ranked.

Ainge: 27-39, 315 yds, 4 TD, 2 INT
Taylor: 8 catches, 141 yds, 2 TD
Foster: 21 carries, 105 yds, 1 TD

Leonard: 20-36, 218 yds, 1 TD, 2 INT; 14 carries, 87 yds, 1 TD
Arnold: 25 carries, 140 yds, 2 TD

Georgia - 17
ALABAMA - 20


Saban For President! (wordpress.com)

*Great game! 'Bama is riding the confidence instilled by Nick Saban and the result is a group of players that may be overachieving. I gotta be honest, I was skeptical about this whole "Saban can do no wrong" mantra the fans in Tuscaloosa have had since his arrival. But, the guy is one helluva coach. The Tide can compete with anyone in this conference and this game will exemplify that notion.

Wilson: 22-38, 247 yds, 1 TD, 1 INT
Grant: 32 carries, 129 yds, 1 TD

Stafford: 19-29, 229 yds, 0 TD, 2 INT

*If Troy loses this game, the Trojans will become the most haywire team ever! After a non-conference schedule most teams would roll over and play dead after, Troy is ready to make a statement as the best team in the Sun Belt Conference! QB Omar Haugabook is so good lately - he's NASTY!!!

Ladies and Gentleman, We Will Finally Win! (meangreennews.com)

*NTU hasn't won a game coming in and FAU is feeling saucy after upsetting Minnesota. So WHYYYY am I picking the Mean Green??? Two reasons. #1 They've never beaten FAU and they're due. #2 It's their home opener - which means fans in Denton can welcome back WR Casey Fitzgerald who racked up 18 catches for 327 yards and 2 touchdowns versus SMU LAST WEEK!!!! IN ONE GAME!!!! QB Danile Meager hooked Fizty up with those yards - all part of 601 YARDS HE HAD TOO!!!! This is North Texas' year!

Meager: 31-45, 394 yds, 4 TD, 2 INT
