    Stupid Upset Picks: the game


    So here it is, the game that I stole from a poster at Bucknuts. The basic premise is to pick an underdog of the game and if you pick correct you get the spread points and keep a running tally of your points throughout the season. By correct I mean the team has to win the game, not just beat the spread. Picks must be made before kickoff of the game you choose.

    Here's the spread list for this week's games:

    Thursday, Aug 31
    Favorite Spread Underdog
    Boston College 13.5 CENTRAL MICHIGAN
    BUFFALO 6.5 Temple
    MID TENN ST 11 Florida International
    BALL ST 4.5 Eastern Michigan
    Northwestern 3.5 MIAMI (OH)
    Minnesota 16.5 KENT ST
    IOWA ST 7.5 Toledo
    South Carolina 6 MISSISSIPPI ST
    SAN DIEGO ST 1.5 Texas-El Paso

    Friday, Sep 1
    Favorite Spread Underdog
    FRESNO ST 11 Nevada

    Saturday, Sep 2
    Favorite Spread Underdog
    MICHIGAN ST 29 Idaho
    MICHIGAN 25.5 Vanderbilt
    TEXAS 40.5 North Texas
    WEST VIRGINIA 22 Marshall
    CLEMSON 34 Florida Atlantic
    NORTH CAROLINA 5.5 Rutgers
    NEBRASKA 20.5 Louisiana Tech
    OHIO ST 18 Northern Illinois
    PENN ST 16 Akron
    WASHINGTON 18 San Jose St
    OREGON 11.5 Stanford
    WYOMING 12 Utah St
    NAVY 11.5 East Carolina
    TENNESSEE 2 California
    FLORIDA 20.5 Southern Mississippi
    INDIANA 3.5 Western Michigan
    WAKE FOREST 16 Syracuse
    Wisconsin 9.5 BOWLING GREEN
    UCLA 3.5 Utah
    OKLAHOMA 21 Alabama-Birmingham
    PITTSBURGH 4 Virginia
    TEXAS TECH 26.5 Southern Methodist
    Army 7 ARKANSAS ST
    ALABAMA 16 Hawaii
    AUBURN 15 Washington St
    Notre Dame 8 GEORGIA TECH
    LSU 29.5 La-Lafayette
    Southern Cal 8 ARKANSAS
    Houston 13 RICE
    ARIZONA 7 Brigham Young

    Sunday, Sep 3

    Rutgers +5.5 over UNC. Brian Leonard is the man.

    Also Binge are you going to keep score of everyone and post like mid-week so we can see standings???

    This is not really a home game for Bowling Green. It is being place at the Cleveland Brown Stadium.
    Also, I hope you are wrong for my sake.

    My pick would be BYU

    Since Binge took time to give us the spreads, I will tally the score. If this sounds cool then we could do this every week. Binge can give the spread/schedule and I will tally after the weekend games(if thats cool with everyone). But here it is, and I am going by the total upset(aka have to WIN).

    Binge - 0-1 (BGSU lost 35-14 to Wisconsin)
    JMH - 0-1 (Cal lost 35-18 to UTenn)
    Rogue - 0-1 (Stanford lost 48-10 to Oregon)
    lilkev - 1-0 (Rutgers Win 21-16 over UNC)
    jantrick - 1-0 (Rutgers Win 21-16 over UNC)
    size - 0-1 (BYU loses 16-13 to Zona)

    If anyone sees any mistakes or questions feel free to comment, I will fix, and go back to the original post if you were playing the spread. Binge HIGHLIGHTED you must win. And if anyone else wants to play feel free to add on next week and I will add you to the standings.

    No problem. Is it cool if you still steal the line from the OSU forum??? And Ill do the standings, let me know if that works for you. And yeah anyone wants FSU tonight let me know before kickoff and I can add you.


    JMH, well its finally Labor Day, now we just get to see who is basically undefeated(well hopefully I would like to see it from either team honestly, Id rather see UM over texas, usc, nd and all them) before we face again in Jacksonville. All I can say is good luck, have fun tonight, its gonna be ugly for both teams.

    Yup Kev.

    The rain is on - big time! Not sure who has an advantage with all this rain.

    The FSU kicker hasn't looked good - hopefully that's a good omen for Miami.

    I still think Miami wins. The kids look loose and hyped.

    Looking forward to a good one!!!!!!

    Yup.
    I was wrong.

    Congrats to FSU.
    You guys did it in the 2nd half - and we didn't.

    Very disappointing.

    I can only hope for a rematch in JAX for the ACCCG.
    But, we gotta find an OL first...

    Oh yeah, your boy Sam Shields, tough drop he had. I played against him in high school along with a few other guys on both teams. That boy will be good, he is quick and will develop into a consistent reciever in the future. And I think that the rematch this year will be one of the best games of the year.

    ...coming from a cane, that means jack sh*t to me! It was a GG like all classic Fl. State-Miami games. We just beat your a$$ AGAIN!!! I said we would last year too.

    They got murdered, it would have been stopped in the 3rd round if it was a boxing match. I felt really good about Cal this year but I thought their ranking was too high at #9. Nate Longshore was VERY disappointing

    BTW, the continous replays in the FSU vs. U game today was frustrating

    OK, should I make a new thread from week to week, or is just this one thread ok?

    [QUOTE=Rogue Drone]My suggestion would be to put up a new thread each week titled "Week X- Upset Picks" and carryover the results so far in the first post and delete the previous week.QUOTE]
    I agree a new thread every week will make it much easier to follow, and I can just post the updated standings at the end of each weekend.

    That's cool Kris.

    We'll get rid of our head coach and be back.
    You guys will still be left with Bowden and perinnieal 3 to 5 loss seasons.

    Mark it down - FSU will have another 4 or 5 loss season.
