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 Four
Week two 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 the biggest mover was Arizona State going from previously unranked all the way to 18th. Temple, Air Force and BYU wrap up the rest of the newcomers in the top 25.
Last week we went one for three on upset picks and this week was better. Houston fell short in a nail bitter to Washington State but BYU and Temple assured the rest of our predictions were spot on. BYU defeated USC and freshman quarterback Kedon Slovis in overtime and elsewhere Temple took down Maryland once again. That makes it 3 for 6 for the season as we go into the next week.
For week 4 Oklahoma State over Texas. This makes sense if you consider how prone Texas is to big losses at the worst time. Texas was a little unlucky to lose to LSU and another loss means they are completely out of the college football playoff race. Oklahoma State is coming off a dominant away win against an underrated Tulsa team and that means confidence going into Texas. Stanford over Oregon. The truth is Oregon aren't a very good team and Stanford needs to turn their season around fast. It's desperation time in California and that doesn't bode well for a visiting Oregon team. Our last upset pick of the week is SMU over TCU. SMU will go to TCU but with both team from the same state, it's not much of an away game. This will be a close game and SMU should pull through.
Tune in next week to see how our upset picks pan out and for new upset picks.

Yes- I, the NCAA March Madness guru, am back to save your bracket.

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...
