The staff was gonna release me from suicide watch, until their supervisor pointed out that we'd achieved a 10-point win over a team that started out the season by losing to an FCS school, and we'd lost Hicks for the year in the process. So I'm back in this padded room, wearing loafers because they won't let me have shoelaces. How can you kill yourself with a pair of freakin' shoelaces?

Anyway:

1 Ole Miss at Alabama - 'Bama
2 CAL at Oregon - Quackers
3 WISC at tOSU - tOSU but it's gonna be closer than most of y'all expect
4 Wake Forest at Clemson - Clemson
5 Stanford at Washington State - Cardinal
6 LSU at Georgia - LSU I actually have no clue, but I'm still holding my '84 Cotton Bowl grudge thru 12/31/2013, so I'll resolve doubt in LSU's favor
7 Florida State at Boston College - 'Noles
8 Texas A&M at Arkansas - College Station Sheep Molesters
9 Oklahoma State at West Virginia - Okie Lite
10 Oklahoma at Notre Dame - Zero U
11 South Carolina at UCF - USCe
12 Miami at USF - 'Canes
13 Florida at Kentucky - Gators or any other D1 school playing Kentucky; and some D2 schools; and maybe Austin Westlake HS
14 Arizona at Washington - Washington
15 Fresno State at Hawaii - Fresno State
16 USC at ASU - USCw another "no [**AngloSaxon term for having sex**] clue" pick
17 Iowa at MINN - Iowa
18 VT at Georgia Tech - Ramblin' Wreck
19 NIU at Purdue - Boilermakers
20 Iowa State at Tulsa - Tulsa I-State's so bad they won't be favored against us; doesn't mean we won't find a way to lose
21 Ark State at Missouri - Mizzou
22 Navy at WKU - Middies
23 UVA at PITT - Pitt
24 ECU at North Carolina - North Carolina
25 Air Force at Nevada - Nevada

Crap! I've been spotted using the computer, which I ain't allowed to do. Still can't figure out how they think I would kill myself with the damn thing.

The most unfair game to be included in this slate has to be I. State @ Tulsa. I. State loses it's opener to FCS Northern Iowa and it's second game to big brother, Iowa. The deceptively close score can be attributed to Iowa's sloppy clean up play late in the game. On the other hand, Tulsa is no beacon of competent football, but they have won a close game against CSU (which also scored on Bama) sandwiched in between blowout losses to OK and BSU (Yes, BSU). Recent history between the two schools is split - I. State opened the 2012 season by defeating Tulsa at home and ended it by losing to Tulsa in a mind-numbing Liberty Bowl (Remember the stink about that one?). This is a frackin' shizzle pick game stuck into this week's slate as a bit of mischief!!!

Not so fast Dummy. Bowling Green State doesn't use BSU as its acronym. It's BGSU.

In the history of CFB, I don't think anyone has ever lost to Bye. Jabba the Weis came close last year; this weekend, I fear Mack may become the first to achieve this infamy.
