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 Seven
Week seven 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.
This week was one of the more simple ones we have had with our rankings in a while. Stanford was the only previously unranked team to join the top 25 after wrestling the number 14 spot away from Washington State despite missing virtually their entire offensive line and two quarterbacks. College football can be cruel and for Washington State there goes their College Football Playoff chances 6 weeks into the season.
Last week was the first time in a long time we went without any correct upset picks and this week we bounced back by going two for three. Cincinnati took down UCF in a game that finally ends the mini UCF dynasty. Texas Tech also held firm at home and took down Oklahoma State but Cal did fall just short of Oregon after a disappointing 4th quarter.
This week we go for a full sweep.
Miami over Virginia. Miami is currently 2-3 on the season but while Virginia is 4 and 1, they are coming off a loss at Notre Dame and Miami University remains one of the toughest places to play. Miami uses this to avenge their loss to Virginia Tech last week. Picking Temple over Memphis is an easy one but doesn't make it any less likely. Temple is currently undefeated at home which already includes a win against a top 25 opponent. Washington State over Arizona State, the battle of the state universities. Washington State just lost a DC, are coming off two straight losses and yet this feels like a win for Washington State. Last time Arizona State was at home they lost to Colorado and the same thing will happen again. Hawaii over Boise State. Boise State is 5 and 0 but that feels generous for how good the team actually is, at some point college football corrects itself and that happens for Boise State this week. Oregon State over Utah. No real concrete reason for this one but Oregon State needs a big win to turn their season around and there's no bigger win than taking down a top 25 team.
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....
