Football prediction time!

I do it every year but I’m not really feeling it this time. I’ve NO IDEA how the season will go for either MSU or UM.

MSU schedule/prediction:

Charleston Southern  Win
@ Louisiana Tech      Win
LSU Tigers                 Loss
@ Georgia Bulldogs  Loss
@ Auburn Tigers       Loss
BYU Cougars            Win
Kentucky                   Win
@ Texas A&M           Win
UMass                       Win
Alabama                    Loss
@ Arkansas              Loss
Ole Miss                    Win

Total: W/L 7-5

(More like this is my ‘hope’ for the year. I have no real idea. Could just as easily be 5-7 as far as I know.)

 

Ole Miss schedule/prediction:

South Alabama   Win
UT Martin            Win
@ California        Loss
@ Alabama         Loss
@ Auburn            Loss
Vanderbilt            Win
LSU                     Loss
Arkansas             Win
@ Kentucky         Win
UL Lafayette        Win
Texas A&M          Loss
Mississippi State Loss

Total: W/L 6/6

(Mostly because they have a new coach and a LOT (I mean A LOT) of distractions from the NCAA ‘thing’. Could just as easily be 10-2 for all I know.)

Basically I have NO IDEA how this year is going to turn out, and that’s perfectly okay. Still looking forward to watching some fun games!

My Fantasy Football season just keeps getting worse.

I think it may be time to give up fantasy football forever. I’ve NEVER had such a bad season as this one. I’m in two leagues this year and have not won a game in either yet. That’s right 0-4 in both.

I’ve never even come close to having a season this bad much less two at once.  If you have a favorite player better make sure not to tell me because a week or two after I select him for my team he’ll go down with a suspension or injury. The number of players I’ve lost this season is just ridiculous.

NOT HAPPY!

Warning you now. Do not expect me to be available during the following times:

The PAIN of gaming

So I gotta be ready for the new WoW expansion to hit tomorrow but I have a fantasy football draft tonight! Gamer cramp!

Actually do want to play WoW for at least an hour tonight. I went and spent a fortune in in game gold for all heirloom gear on a druid that I’m leveling through the pre-expansion invasions event. I was able to get it to 92 and buy myself an XP boost potion. Gotta get that 100!

I’m predicting a very bad year in Fantasy football this year, because I haven’t paid attention to any Pro stats in a LONG time. I do think I’ll try and draft Dak tonight though!

Ole Miss destined for Sugar no matter what?

So let’s take for granted that Florida will lose in the SEC Championship game against Alabama. That’ll put them below Ole Miss in the polls and probably the Championship list too (if they aren’t there Tuesday night already). That’ll mean Alabama goes to the Championship series and Ole Miss gets the Sugar Bowl right?

Now here’s what I found sad/funny. If Ole Miss had beat Arkansas and gone to the SEC Championship, I think they would have been left out of the Championship games no matter what. So they’d have ended up at…the Sugar Bowl even if they won out. Looks like UM (and MSU and tons of other non-blue-blood favorites) can forget about ever reaching those Championship Series games until and unless they win out. No losses.

They REALLY gotta extend the Championship Playoff to 8 teams ASAP.  (Why we aren’t able to do the same as the lower divisions have been doing FOREVER still baffles me. I know, I know. $$$)

SEC West Championship hopes last week

So here we are, the last week of the regular season for the SEC and things seem pretty stable. Alabama is in the lead with just 1 SEC loss, Ole Miss is trailing with 2 then almost everyone else is sitting at 4-3 except Auburn who is way back at 2-5. Alabama wins then they are in the SEC championship game, PERIOD. If Alabama loses AND Ole Miss wins THEN, and only then can Ole Miss make it to the SEC Championship game. I don’t see that happening, but it’s college football. You play the game because you just don’t know.

If MSU beats Ole Miss that’ll leave both teams squarely in the scrum in the middle of the SEC West at 5-3. If UM wins that’ll put them squarely at #2 or #3 in the SEC depending on how the championship game plays out. Depending on the final weeks outcome we should be getting a REALLY good idea about the bowl games this time next week.
