Lock City: “Miggles is a Mush” Saturday College Games Re-cap

College week 1 

Miggles 3 – 3

Ohio 24 Penn State 14

Ok to be clear, I had reservations on the Penn State game, but I did point us all in the wrong direction on this one.  They obviously are suffering from distractions still.  The new coach hasnt found his groove and the loss of their key running back has made a difference.  So we definitely know how to treat PSU going forward.  (bright part)? 🙂

Clemson 26 Aurburn 19

yeaaaaa soooooo Clemsons good.  They have always had flashes of greatness then flashes of god awfulness.  I think we missed a key clue that this game would be on the greatness side.  Them coming of the embarrassment of last years bowl game gave them 8 months to dwell and prepare for that to never happen again.  Hind sight is 20/20 and I can see clearly why Clemson should have been the pick there.

Notre Dame 50 Navy 10

Notre Dame is looking to be a contender this year and need to make a statement in their first game with an abysmal Navy team.   This should have been easy to see.  Of course I didn’t see shit on this but a lot of points, which obviously didn’t matter.

Miami 41 BC 32

I DID however pick the Miami vs. BC game.  Hard fought and high scoring, but the better team pulled it out.  Lets not get it twisted here, (as the kids say) neither of these teams are very good so anything could have happened, I just rode the fact that BC had too much to deal with when it comes to injuries.

Bama 41 Michigam 14

I got 2 words for Mayweather…. you’re an idiot!! OK 3, but reports were out all week that you are betting 3 mill on Michigan, no rebuttals, no tweets, not a peep from you or your camp.  The games over and suddenly out of the woodwork  your camp comes out stating you actually placed the bet on Alabama.  How am I supposed to read into this???  Im gonna give it a shot.  After the  game you sulk go to your room and talk to no one for the rest of the night.  You wake up, making breakfast and people start walking in the kitchen, not saying a word to you because they know what kind of “mood” your in.  You can feel their tension and you chime out, $50,000 to whomever can make this like I took Alabama.  A few of your cronies take the challenge and head on there way.  You finish breakfast alone, head to the shower, then off to the gym like nothing happend not talking about the bet with anyone untils its confirmed from your lackeys that they got the word out and the media is running with it.

I write this because how can anyone with a straight face trust anything you say?  Your EGO blurs the lines on what to believe and what not to believe.  Your money and constant stock of yes men causes that same problem.  So in a nut shell i’m sticking with non fictional (most likely ) story of events.  Sorry about your loss moron.

Miggles finished college week one 3-3. Ehhhh who doest love payin juice.  I guess its better than ponying up for the loss.

NFL coverage and picks starting this tuesday.  STAY TUNED!!!!

Lock City: Wister Miggles College Gameday Picks

Miggles – Ok lets start by saying that we are 2-0 after Thursday and Fridays picks.  Yes there was a “bonus pick” in there that went awry, but bonus picks dont count, thats why they are bonus.  Thats my story and I’m sticking to it.  Needless to say the bonus picks will be discontinued until further notice.  Ok back to the good stuff, first Saturday of the college season and there are some great games on tap.  Lock City isnt about great games though its about picking winners so lets get to it.

Clemson Tigers (0-0) vs. Auburn Tigers (0-0)

Aubrun is returning 15 starters and this is another classic case of SEC vs ACC.  Auburn’s strength will definitely be their defense this year as the have an avg offense at best.  Clemson has a high-powered offense with a defense that let them down late in the season and still isnt very proven.  With Sammy Watkins being out, I dont see Clemson’s offense being able to overcome the speed and size of Auburns defense.  Auburn has to face the likes of LSU, Alabama, Georgia and Arkansas later this season.  If they plan on making any noise they have to get past Clemson. SEC getting points against ACC in a Neutral spot.  SEC all the way!

Miggles pick Auburn +2.5

Miami Hurricanes (0-0) vs. Boston College Eagles (0-0)

Miami has had some distractions of late, but is returning some good players and has a lot of new talent all around the ball.  I don’t expect too much from this team this year as they are still quite young.  I do expect them to be able to handle Boston College on the road however.  BC was god awful last year and is decimated by injuries this year.  They are young and have no depth, add that to the fact they have TE Chris Pantale, CB Al Louis-Jean, and WR Bobby Swigert all out and lingering injuries to their 3 RB’s  Rolandan Finch, Andre Williams, and Tahj Kimble I don’t expect much at all from them today.

Miggles Pick Miami -2.5

Penn State Nittany Lions (0-0) vs. Ohio Bobcats (0-0)

We all know Penn States story, the question is can they bounce back?  I say they can with a new coach, new offense, new attitude and something new to play for, I think we are in for a surprise.  Happy Valley will be rocking today as everyone is gonna (by human nature) go above and beyond to show their loyalty.  Ohio is no slouch and had an impressive 10-4 season last year and was 34th in the nation in scoring averaging over 30 points a game.  The line dropped from +9 to +6.5 throughout the week and this goes to show the wiseguys see something in Ohio as they try and temp us with Penn State.  Wellllll I’m falling for it.  I like Penn State here I think this would be a huge monkey off their back to come out and play like a team again and get a big win to start the season.  I think they can squeeze a 1 TD victory here, BUT don’t be surprised of a talented Ohio team sneaks out an upset.  OK OK Penn State….I just had to hedge my thought process a little bit.

Miggles Pick Penn State – 6.5

Notre Dame Fighting Irish (0-0) vs. Navy Midshipmen (0-0)

Ill keep this one short and sweet as the game is close to starting.  Navy is a very opportunistic team and has a very solid RB core.  They return a seasoned QB and in this neutral site I think anything can happen.  Not much insight given here, but I think this is just too many points and they fight it out with ND.

Miggles Pick – Navy +14.5

$$$$$$  Money May laid 3 million on Michigan at +14. Its now down to +13.5 at Alabama I would take Bama all day on this one….Neutral site I think the moran might be on to something.  I’m not picking anything here, because I want nothing more than that idiot to lose 3 million bucks.  Roll Tide!!!!!!

Miggles

Wister Miggles College Pick of the Night

8-4 Washington State Cougars and 10-3 Brigham Young Cougars begin their college football seasons on ESPN in Utah. Experienced BYU returns 7 starters on offense and 7 starters on defense.  Washington State only won 4 games last year and I don’t see this year being any different.  BYU won 10 games last year and is looking for a bowl birth this year.  BYU has to play Boise State, Hawaii, Utah, Utah State, Notre Dame and Georgia Tech this year.  This leaves them very little opportunity and makes games like this EXTREMELY important.  I look for them to make a point tonight and lay it on WSU.

 

Miggles pick BYU -11.5
