If you haven't been paying attention, there's a storm a-brewin' in Oklahoma City. Clearly, this team is done tanking, but are we underrating how capable this team is? One of the youngest teams in league history that plays hard with an unselfish and fluid brand of basketball. 10th in defensive rating. 14th in offensive rating. With less than a month...
2019 College Football Upset Picks and Rankings: Week Five
Week four 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.
The biggest shock this week was UCLA moving all the way to 23rd with their first win of the season in a shocking upset of Washington State. Chip Kelly back? Idk time will tell. Wisconsin also moved up 12 spots in their demolition of Michigan. USC, Pittsburgh, Colorado, Buffalo, UCLA, Boise State and Washington.
Moving on to our upset picks, we got one right and that result was SMU over TCU. Not a stellar week but it does extend our streak. This next week is full of surefire upset picks.
Maryland over Penn State. Penn State just isn't a good football team and will be tasked with a trip to Maryland for their first away trip of the season. Maryland owe their fans a big result after their debacle at Temple (which we predicted). Next up is Indiana over Michigan State. The bad week for Michigan football teams continue with Indiana coming out of Lansing with a victory. Bo Nix has been exceptional in the clutch for Auburn so far this season but at some point that luck runs out. That point is this week as Auburn hosts a Mississippi State team that is always solid defensively. Mississippi State over Auburn.
Tune in next week to see how our upset picks pan out and for new upset picks.

Predicting the 2023 March Madness Champion
Yes- I, the NCAA March Madness guru, am back to save your bracket. If you've kept up with the series, you're probably asking why I consider myself a guru when I'm one for four in my March Madness predictions. First of all, STOP- don't bring that negative energy here. Second, I'd say I'm two and five since you can't prove...
