RazorPicks — Week 6 Results

Alright, here we go….

Top 10 Things Seen/Heard/Read In Week 6 of College Football

  • South Carolina finally ends the whole "Woodsen for Heisman" campaign by making the Wildcat QB look pitifully inept. He looked horrible in the 38 – 23 Gamecock win in Columbia.
  • Louisville continues its free-fall and continues to show the woeful state of the Big East conference. Completely over-rated conference.
  • Ron Zook and the Illini upend the Badgers and end their 14 game winning streak in Champaign. So, is Zook now learning how to coach all this unbelievable talent he is able to recruit? Scary for the Big 10 if so.
  • Kansas is now 5 – 0 for the third time in 39 years after their upset of K-State in Manhattan. This offense can put up points and if the defense learns how to play at all, this will be a very scary team.
  • Butch Davis and his new team, the North Carolina Tar Heels, getting up for and upsetting his old team, the Miami Hurricanes, in Chapel Hill. This one would have been the upset of the week if not for one further down the list….
  • Tennessee finally finding some form of defense in their shocking dismantling of Georgia in Knoxville over the weekend. Where has that defense been all year? Would have come in handy in Berkley and in Gainesville earlier in the year for sure.
  • Clemson continuing their mid-season swoon and continuing to struggle mightily on offense. They were shut down at home by the Hokies who really didn't do much with their offense, but that defense and special teams did enough to make up for it.
  • LSU and their "gamble" that paid off mightily for them in their stunning come-from-behind victory over the Gators in Baton Rogue. How lucky is Les Miles? I am beginning to think that this is his year and he will then jump ship to his alma mater next year. Ann Arbor he is coming.
  • How about those Stanford Cardinals??? How in the world do you even begin to comprehend what transpired in the Coliseum on Saturday night?? 41 point underdogs. Coming off a 1 – 11 season a year ago. USC 35 game home winning streak. And the Cardinal upset the Trojans. Simply stunning.

Brick of the Week
Well, this turned out to be a great week for most on the board as the average number of wins was 6.5. That is getting better. We almost saw our first 10 – 0 week as well as a couple of individuals were 9 – 1. However, the BOTW this week goes to someone who, unfortunately is deserving of this wonderful award. He is having a good year so far, however, this pick was just out there. When I was calculating the results, I actually have to go back and check twice to make sure I had this one correct. And yes, I did. This week, with a pick of Iowa State over Texas Tech, the BOTW goes to Mr. Gene "Honestly, I thought that was Texas State, not Texas Tech" Strode.


Pick of the Week
This week, there weren't any real "upsets" in the games. There was the win of Va Tech over Clemson at Clemson, but the Hokies were the higher ranked team. Any other year and Missouri over Nebraska would have been HUGE. Not this year though. However, this week, three individuals went out on a limb with a non-traditional pick to upend an up and coming program over the past couple of years. They gave the nod to the Bearcats from Cinncinati to go into Piscataway and come away with the win. Which they did. And in the process improved to 6 – 0 on the season. Therefore, the picks of the week go to Mr. Carl "Can I get a QB?" Mayo, Mr. Jamey "I will take Ron Zook for a $1000 Alex" Vaught, and Mr. Damon "No chance in hell this weekend" Hill. Congratulations guys.


Champion of the Week
Well, some people made up some ground in the standings this week. Others well, the came back to the pack just a tad. Another couple of weeks and this race could get REAL interesting. However, this week, there were four contestants who were 9 – 1. Those individuals didn't miss the same games either. Kind of interesting to say the least. In the end, the following came close, but couldn't get over the hump. They were Mrs. Lisa "Where is Rutgers University anyways?" Hill (14), Mr. Jamey "Honestly, I've just got to get better" Vaught (11), and Mr. Damon "Warming up to the Zook-era idea" Hill (22). That leaves one contestant with the lowest tie-break score and that is the winner this week. Week 6 Pick-Em winner is Mr. Carl "Thank God for Felix" Mayo (6)!. Congratulations!
