31-25...MAKE FUN OF ME. Here's Week #7

By Amsinger - October 08, 2007


31-25? 31-25?

Will I get fired for picking that poorly? My wife sure hopes not. What an absolute disaster for my overall picking record. Week #6 goes down in history as the worst week EVER!!!! I've had a few bad weeks picking division one football games, but nothing like this. My parents won't even talk to me.

After screaming and cursing at me over the phone for my horrible predictions, my Grandmother told me to get back to the basics. Essentially, she said until my record improves, I shouldn't waste folks time with "why" I think a team is going to win. I'm not good enough for that yet.

Gotta listen to Grandma.

So, my week #7 picks will be much shorter. I'll give you the score and a funny related pic of each division one football game. But until my picking prowess improves, no analysis...I don't deserve it.

In case you're counting, here's a statistical breakdown of how I'm picking so far this season:

Week #1: 53-17
Week #2: 54-8
Week #3: 47-19
Week #4: 43-17
Week #5: 44-15
Week #6: 31-25 (gross)

Overall Record for 2007-08 season: 272-101.
My weekly average is 45-17.

Like I do each and every week, I predict all Division 1A games (otherwise known as the College Football Bowl Subdivision). This blog will carry scores from the ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten and MAC. On Wednesday, you'll get your full of CUSA, Mountain West, Pac-Ten, SEC, Sun Belt and WAC.
