Last week was a tough week. I went 5 and 3. What is up with Georgia Tech? Man that wasn't pretty. They used to dominate with their running attack. It really makes Virginia Tech's win against them not mean much now. I flipped a coin on the Hokie game so it wasn't a surprise that they lost. They did look terrible again. The N.C. State game was really wishful thinking. I wanted Miami to lose because they are in our division. Oh well.... I did get the DUKE game right! Duke is 4 and 1! They have a really great chance to make a bowl game this year! That being said lets get to this week's picks:
Last week: 5-3 Total: 40-8
Boston College vs. Army: Army has not looked good at all this year. Boston College is playing well. They haven't won recently but they have hung with a couple of teams. I think that Boston College will play well enough to win this game so I am going with Boston College. My pick is Boston College.
Virginia vs. Duke: Virginia has been really disappointing this year. They showed some promise in the first half last week but then got blown out of the water. They did however put up almost 600 yards of offense in that game. Duke played a tough game against Wake and may have lost their starting quarterback for a awhile. I still have this feeling that this is a special year for Duke football. WE ARE DUKE!! My pick this week is Duke.
Wake Forest vs. Maryland: Wake lost their star receiver Campanaro against Duke last week. He will be out for this game but luckily doesn't need surgery. Maryland has played well against some tough opponents and has looked good at times. I still think Wake is the better team and will win this game. My pick is Wake Forest. Recently Wake has suspended 6 players from the team. This as well as the starting wide reciever being out has forced me to rethink my pick. My pick is Maryland. 10/5/12 change.
Clemson vs. Georgia Tech: I think this game will be close even tough Georgia Tech has not played well this year. If they can control the clock for most of the game through their running attack the could win the game. However I think Clemson is too strong. The will come out throwing and running and the Georgia Tech defense won't know what hit them. My pick is Clemson.
Florida State vs. NC State: I so badly wanted NC State to play well last week and come up with a win. Unfortunately that didn't happen. They did not look good at all with all the turnovers they had. I think they can keep it close against Florida State and this is one of the two ACC games left on Florida State's schedule that I think they can lose. Overall I think Florida State is the better school and they will win the game. My pick is Florida State.
Notre Dame vs. Miami: This is a really interesting game. I think Miami has a real shot to win this game and get a big upset. Is the U for real this year? I can't decide. Notre Dame has played really well this year and is ranked in the top 10. I just have this feeling about this game. Although my head says stick with the for sure winner and take Notre Dame. My heart says Miami. So I think I will go with my heart. My pick is Miami.
Virginia Tech vs. North Carolina: Wow the Hokies did not look good in the 1st half last week. I think we had like 27 yards of total offense in the first quarter. I don't see much changing unless a fire has been lit under them after last week's loss. I have seen North Carolina play this year and I think they are going to score a lot in this game. Although I will be in attendance and will be donning my Orange and Maroon, I still don't like our chances. My pick is North Carolina. Come on Hokies show me something!!!!!
Let's see what happens week 6!
