BCS predictions

The college football season is coming to an end. As a New Years gift from EB to you we have our last minute BCS picks to help you get in the holiday betting spirit.

ROSE – THE Ohio State U 31 Oregon 26 – I will be in attendance for an EB blog post to kickoff 2010 – I know Oregon will score points, but I figure they will get 4 FG’s in the red zone and the Bucks will get off the losing schnide behind a big day from the underrated 3 headed monster of Boom Herron, Zoom Saine and The Phenom – that’s right, I am breaking off nicknames and I am a HOMER!  Plus, Cam “Lil’ Ironhead” Heyward and the uber-talented OSU D-Line will dominate Oregon’s running game – I am also predicting Thad Gibson, aka Alpha Junk yard Dog of OSU, will coldcock knockout LaGarrette Blount after the game…

Don’t talk trash on Florida or you might make the big board

This is a message to all those SEC teams out there who want to talk smack on Tebow and the boys. If you do open your mouth you will make the Florida bulletin board! It looks like Les Miles and Bobby Bowden have learned there lesson since they have no material posted yet. But that Lane and Mark! They already have multiple pieces of material on the board! don’t they know that Tebow will rain touchdowns upon them while Urban laughs from the sidelines!

Okay, I can’t keep the facade up. The board is pretty ridiculous but I guess when you have won 2 championships in the last 3 years that you need something to motivate your guys. Personally if I was a player/coach and knew about this board I would do everything and anything to get on there.

top 5 rivalry games you should care about

Football season is creeping up on us faster then a Florida Gator running from the po-po’s so now is a great time to look at the top 5 rivalry games you should watch out for this season. Before we jump into it let’s set some guidelines for the list.

History Matters – One of the best things about college football is the rich deep tradition that it has. We care more about rivalries that have spawned tradition for and love the animosity that it brings.

Is the rivalry competitive - If it is less of a rivalry and more like John Matrix blowing heads off in Commando then its not a real rivalry. Take for example USC and Notre Dame. These two teams play every year but it has become such a lopsided rivalry we could care less. (okay, we always like seeing ND get worked but you know what i mean.)

Taylor Mays decided to stay at USC even being one of the premier safeties in college football which left me confused why he didn’t go pro. Now after watching him with the USC song birds I think i have a better understanding. – totalprosports

The Kiff stickin it to Urban: signs john brown

I am beginning to love Lane Kiffin. He is like the Spencer Pratt of college football. Making enemies, talking trash, and causing more hype then anyone else in college football. Who knows if he will return the Vols to prominence, but today he took another step forward by signing former Florida Gator standout recruit tackle John Brown.
