Ok, here are the results for week 3 of the contest.
10 Things I Saw/Heard/Read From College Football Week 3
- The Men of Troy (no, not the Southern Cal flavor) romped over supposed Big XII Title Contender Okie State to the tune of 41 – 23.
- The Citadel hung 31 on Wisconsin in Camp Randall. Anyone else getting the feeling the Big 10(1) is HIGHLY overrated this year??
- Sylvester Croom and his Bulldogs went down on the Plains in Auburn and handed Tommy "Ears" Tuberville and the Tigers his second consecutive loss at home. Yikes! Hope he still has the L'ville AD on speed dial.
- Florida and Tim Tebow put a whopping on Phat Phil and his Volunteers in The Swamp to the score of 59 – 20. Where is the Vols defense???
- Texass (most overrated team in the country, yeah, they even beat Michigan) once again squeaking out a win on the road against an inferior team in Central Florida this time. OU and Stoops must be licking their chops about now.
- In the "Pillow Fight of the Week" the Wolverines finally found someone worse than them. The Fighting Irish who they blanked in the Big House 38 – 0. It does my soul good to see the Irish this horrible.
- The Utes, yes, I said Utes, who had previously lost to Oregon State and Air Force pounded on #11 UCLA this past weekend. The Bruins must have been mesmerized by the Mormons or something. Geez.
- USC romped over Nebraska in what was supposed to be a return to glory game for the Cornhuskers. Might want to schedule someone besides USC next time Nebraska. Sorry.
- Kentucky and Andre' Woodson lit up Louisville on their way to their first win over a Top 10 team in almost 30 years. Wow! This weekend the Cats get to test their Defense against the best running back duo in the country in Fayetteville.
- BSPN coronated their love-fest for everything Saban this past weekend when Arkansas surrendered a 7 point lead in the final 4 minutes of the game as the Tide won on a last second TD 41 – 38. McFadden just ran for 195 yards and 2 TD. No biggie. Lord do I ever hate Alabama!!!
Brick of the Week
Well, as we move through the year, this honor will become easier and easier to award. This week was no exception. Of the 15 people who submitted picks this week, two missed this game. And it wasn't even a close game at that. They were probably provoked by the idea that last weekend this home team gave Wisconsin a run for their money. However, this weekend, they were no match for the Hawaii offense. Therefore week 3 BOTW goes to Mr. Brian "What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas" Mashburn and yours truly, Mr. Damon "I have no excuse" Hill. You win some, you lose some. Right bud??
Pick of the Week
This week, the POTW was just as easy to award as the BOTW was above. In one game this week only 3 individuals correctly picked the "upset" as the visiting team from Boston College rolled into Atlanta and knocked off the Yellow Jackets. Up until then, the Yellow Jackets had looked to be the real deal. However, getting shut down at home isn't good. Therefore, those three will share the pick of the week this week. And in a feat seldom seen before, one of these three will actually take home the POTW and the BOTW. The POTW goes to Mrs. Jessica "Mascot Pick-em Baby!!!" Leija, Mr. Jonathan "I will always pick the Irish" Butcher, and Mr. Brian "It's just flipping a coin" Mashburn. Congratulations.
Champion of the Week
This week was a decent week for the pick-ems. Everyone was abover .500 which is a start. The conference season is swinging into full speed and that will put a damper on some of the picks as we move along. However, this week one individual rose above the crowd. Had it not been for those Buckeyes from Ohio State and their win AT Washington, this individual would have scored our first 10 – 0 week. But alas, the Huskies couldn't get the job done and we will move to Week 4 without a 10 – 0 record. This week, the winner of the RazorPicks with a record of 9 – 1 is none other than Mrs. Jessica "It's a woman's world men" Leija. Congratulations Jess. Rub it in all week 😉
