Comparisons are a vital part of sports. We can't set our eyes on a new talent without immediately pointing to who that player reminds us of, like the Leonardo Di Caprio meme from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. I do it too, so I wish I had an answer for why we can't escape the jaws of a player-comp,...
2019 College Football Upset Picks and Rankings: Week Six
Week five of our CFB rankings and Upset Picks. Our criteria is very simple, to be the man you gotta beat the man, if a lower ranked team beats a higher ranked team, then the two teams automatically swap spots regardless of prior results.
That was a close call. Clemson, the defending national champs, almost dropped a game to unranked North Carolina. Luckily, Clemson pulled through but this game offered further evidence to our claims that Trevor Lawrence is overrated. He struggled once again this week and will need to step things up as the schedule gets more difficult. Other than that, the rest of the week was straightforward in a college football season that has been disappointing so far in regards to big upsets.
Speaking of upsets, for the first time this season and only the second time in two seasons we were incorrect in our upset picks. This week will be a return to the norm.
We kick off our upset picks with a Friday night game. Cincinnati over UCF. UCF's regular season magic finally ran out and the natural progression is to drop a conference game. Cincinnati are poised for a big win after a great start to the season with the sole loss coming against Ohio State. Next up is a BIG 12 upset pick. Texas Tech over Oklahoma State. Texas Tech are on a two game losing streak but that came as a result of two straight away games. Texas Tech return home and go home against an Oklahoma State team that lost a game last time they were in Texas. Final upset pick is a PAC 12 upset pick. Cal over Oregon. This game as with many PAC 12 games will be a close matchup. Cal might just be lucky enough to pull this one out.
Tune in next week to see how our upset picks pan out. In the mean time, like, follow and subscribe to get up to date content.

Since the beginning of the calendar year, we've all known that Watford and Norwich would get relegated back to the Championship. The focus has been on what team would be the third to get the drop, with Leeds taking pole position after letting Bielsa go. And their replacement, Jesse Marsch, was hired into a nearly impossible situation. Leed had just...
I did my worst fanbases earlier in the week, so it's only fair that I do my best fanbases. No bias or anything here; this is as objective and fair of a list as you'll find based on my soccer knowledge. in my humble opinion, these are the best fanbases to play for. And again, if you don't agree, don't forget to write your local congressman or woman....
