Week 15 CFB ‘Expert’ Picks + Week 14 NFL Picks

It’s Championship Weekend in college football…where the conferences’ best are cemented and playoff dreams are made or die. I’ll give my predictions on what to expect this weekend below. in the BOLD PREDICTION area.
In the meantime, I’d like to use this space to address why I’ve changed my opinion over the last week and now support my alma mater, Arizona in keeping its head coach, Kevin Sumlin.

Week 14 CFB ‘Expert’ Picks + Week 13 NFL Picks

There is nothing like the pageantry of a rivalry game in college football. Sorry Duke-UNC college basketball, Yankees-Red Sox, Bears-Packers, Leafs-Canadiens…I’ll take Ohio State-Michigan or Auburn-Alabama any day.

College football games make for fun and entertainment; rivalry games make for memories.

Week 12 NFL Picks

It’s a common theme on The Daily Blender that I call for coaches to be fired when they aren’t cutting it. Hell, if you and I didn’t do our jobs well and we were overpaid, not to mention in the public eye, we would face major scrutiny as well!

I don’t blame Nick Saban. His team was up 35-7 with just three minutes to go before halftime and while they weren’t going to blow that lead against Mississippi State, there was really no need to remove his starting QB before halftime. Who benches their starters before halftime? Then again, Baylor blew a 28-3 lead against Oklahoma also on Saturday so the unpredictability of every game can’t be doubted.

Week 10 NFL Picks

We’re a little more than halfway through the NFL season and what have we learned? New England may be the best team in the league (and yes they still are after the loss to Baltimore) but the competition may not be as far behind as many, including me would’ve thought last week. It’s also been a weird year picking games…I’ve done better recently but for a few weeks there, I picked more losers than winners.

Week 9 NFL Picks

In 2019, we’ve seen two teams go from rock bottom to the champions of their respective sports. The St. Louis Blues were in last place at the beginning of January…and Stanley Cup Champions in June. The Washington Nationals were 19-31 in May…and just won the World Series.
Is there a team in the NFL that can do the same thing?

Week 10 CFB ‘Expert’ Picks

I always feel badly calling for someone else to be fired from their job. But the truth is – no matter your profession, if you aren’t cutting it, it’s time for you to go. D-day finally happened for Arizona Wildcats’ defensive coordinator Marcel Yates, whose lackluster schemes were being torched by seemingly everyone in the Pac-12 for the last several years.
