Lock City: Miggles College Picks of the Week

 

Ok week one didnt yield us any money, but it was a semi respectable 3-3.  Im looking to make up for it this week as I have used all of my knowledge (or the internet) to give us 4 pretty solid picks.  Trust me?

 

North Carolina State Wolfpack (0-1) at Connecticut Huskies (1-0)

One of my winning picks from last week was NC State getting outclassed by the SEC and a fast Tennessee.  This week the same thing will happen in reverse as Connecticut will get outclassed by the ACC and NC State.  State basically gave the game away last week by giving up 16 points in 38 seconds in the first quarter and somehow, someway still managed to have a chance deep into the fourth.  Mike Glennon and the nations best secondary last year look to redeem themselves as they travel to CT and get their first win.  I like this at -3.5 if you can get it at -3 …I love it.

 

Miggles Pick – NC State – 3.5

 

Purdue Boilermakers (1-0) at Notre Dame Fighting Irish (1-0)

The Boilermakers are an improved team this season, and Marve looks like he could finally be healthy enough to live up to his expectations. The Irish are the better team here however, and I’m starting to think or (even better for this game) think they think or maybe we both think  they are a dark horse for BCS champ talks. Purdue should keep it close for awhile, but I think the talent and depth of Notre Dame take over late and the Irish pull away and get the cover here.

 

Miggles Pick – ND -14

 

Washington Huskies (1-0) at LSU Tigers (1-0)

LSU won all six games at home last year by 24 or more and I don’t see a change this year, at least in this game as a pretty bad road team in the Washington Huskies come to Baton Rouge.  I usually try and stay away from the big spreads, but I cant on this one.  Miggles loves the Tigers here in a rout.

 

Miggles Pick – LSU -24

 

USC  Trojans (1-0) at Syracuse Orange (0-1)

Ok I lied about the big spread thing.  I mean is it a big spread if the team is going to cover it?  Im not even sure that makes sense.  Anyway, USC is on a mission this year, their post season ban has been lifted and they are a serious contender for BCS champions.  They are not only looking to win the big ones, they are looking to blow out the little one’s to leave no doubt at the end of the season.  THAT made sense.  USC Rolls.

 

Miggles Pick – USC – 26

Tar Heels Drum Phoenix, Nothing To Write Home About

Will North Carolina be able to compete in the post season this year?  The answer is no.  But the Heels were impressive in their first game under new coach Larry Fedora.  Tarheel fans have a new fast paced offense, and had limited mistakes in the season opener.  Despite not being eligible for the post season, this could still be a good year for UNC. 

KEEPINGITHEEL The North Carolina Tar Heels absolutely killed Elon Phoenix in the opener.  The game went perfect for Larry Fedora in his UNC head coaching debut.  You can’t ask for much more than a 62-0 start to your tenure in a new place and that’s just what Fedora got.  His team was well prepared, focused and despite learning new systems on both sides of the ball, looked pretty efficient.

The praise has poured in for the Heels who were 29th in the AP this week and could conceivably enter the Top 25 with a win this weekend against Wake Forest.  Running back Giovanni Bernard who put up over 200 all purpose yards while scoring three touchdowns in three different ways (rushing, receiving, punt return) and suddenly he’s on the Hornung Honor Roll for the Paul Hornung Award. He also being mentioned as a potential outside Heisman candidate and people are actually serious now.

The defense looked good, the offense looked almost great at times and the special teams set records, not bad at all. Just don’t get over excited Tar Heel Nation. Yes that was a great game, yes UNC looks like they can win a decent amount of games. Yes I can forsee this team doing even better in 2013 with the help of a very good recruiting class Fedora has put together.

But then again, it was Elon folks and UNC didn’t exactly take the foot off the gas in this game at all.  I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know, at least I hope not.  This team could very well be good, but don’t start day dreaming about a top 20 or better finish this year because it’s not going to happen.

They didn’t take their foot off the gas but took their quarterback and starting running back out for the second half.  If that isn’t taking the foot off the gas I don’t know what is.  But still, it was an inferrior opponent. 

The changes in schemes on both sides of the ball will take some work, growing pains will happen.  Gio Bernard is probably going to be a big time NFL player one day and will have more games like he had at Elon.  Just don’t expect 14 different players to catch passes and the Heels 4-2-5 defense to look like the San Francisco 49ers D all year.

No matter what the biggest thing this team needs is to grow together and they need the fan bases support.  The Tar Pit was great on Saturday, but empty seats remained.  A new era is upon us and Tar Heel football has a real chance of turning things around.  Just don’t expect it to be done overnight, and don’t think your fan support isn’t needed, because the program may need it now more than ever.

Tarheel fans don’t show up though.  UNC just does not have the fan support for football games like NC State and other in state rival ECU.  Sure, for a more formidable opponent more fans will show.  The tailgating at UNC is almost non existent.  Unfortunately I do not see that changing, ever.  Hopefully more fans will begin to come out and show support for a program that has been thru a lot the past few years that is talked about so much, I see no need to mention it in detail.  Good to see the boys out there playing their hearts out knowing they will not be able to compete in the post season this year. 

The Tarheels will travel to Winston Salem on Saturday to take on the Demon Deacons from Wake Forest.  Wake Forest struggled to beat Liberty at home last weekend.  They pulled out a close game late, winning 20-17. 

 

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

College Kickoff: Why State Will Beat Tennessee

State is starting this season with an experienced group of athletes. 6’6 230 lb Glennon is back with a vengence. He wants to go to the show and he is good enough to get there. He will be a premier QB in college football this year. Tennessee is long out of the SEC title race, they have a sub par defense which has undergone so many changes and lack team chemistry. Although State has younger under experienced line backers the boys up front can hold their own. There is a lot to prove for both sides but state will pull it out.

Or you can listen to this kid:

Judging by the wall decals he is a legitimate fan.
