A Catastrophe?

Did you hear what Nick Saban said the other day? What an A-hole.

"Changes in history usually occur after some kind of catastrophic event," Saban said. "It may be 9/11, which sort of changed the spirit of America relative to catastrophic events. Pearl Harbor kind of got us ready for World War II, and that was a catastrophic event."

The only real catastrophe at Alabama is that they are stuck with this loser as the face of their football program. I can not stand this guy and continue to root against him whenever possible, which as luck would have it, can happen this weekend.

By the way, losing to Louisiana-Monroe is not a catastrophe. Everyone outside of Alabama doesn’t even care you still are playing football. You are out of the BCS picture and will be lucky to make a bowl game this year. You want to talk catastrophe? How about wanting to place your “get all your money back in one game” on the New England Patriots vs. the Bills on Sunday night, but your bookie telling you that you have already exceeded your limit for the week.

College picks:

USC -3.5 @ Arizona state (Thursday)
ASU won’t be able to run on the Trojans

TEXAS A&M +6 vs. Texas (Friday)
A&M pulled off the upset last year and will do it again this year in the hopes of sending Dennis Franchione out a winner

BOISE STATE+3.5 @ Hawaii (Friday)
7 straight losses to the Broncos. Make it 8.

AUBURN -6 vs. Alabama
Auburn has had a week to prepare for this game. They are a better team, have a better QB and yes, even a better coach.

WEST VIRGINIA -17 vs. UConn
Lots of breaks thus far, for the Huskies. They have not seen a team like this, nor can they prepare for them. Blowout special.

OKLAHOMA STATE +12 vs. Oklahoma
I love the underdogs in the rivalry games, especially the ones with injured RBs and quarterbacks.

UCLA +2 @ Oregon
Oregon is done. Their title hopes have been dashed. When Dixon went down, their season ended. You don't really believe that Ryan Leaf's brother will be able to carry this team to the Rose Bowl, do you?

Pro picks:

LIONS +3.5 vs. Packers
Turkey day special. Lions win.

TEXANS +3.5 vs. Browns
Both teams can score. The Browns will have more trouble defending.

SEAHAWKS -3 @ Rams
Time to “sell” on the Rams after their 2 game win streak. They can’t stop the pass and will struggle mightily in this game.

RAVENS +9.5 @ Chargers
I really do like the Chargers, but they are living off last year’s reputation. They should not be giving up 9.5 points to anyone!

Yo Money,

Have you watched Boise or Hawaii play this year? Hawaii will cover this one. The reasons you think Boise. . .are the exact reasons they lose! Think about it jerky!

I have seen both play Barry, but not live ...Jerky! I don't think Hawaii is that good, but obviously you know more. Good luck June.

Barry, Money did miss the Hawaii game, but he's still pretty on fire. Good call on USC and thanks for the West Virginia pick.
Money, can you get B Anthony to give me some advice on how to play Iowa? I was never any good at shaving points when I played there.

Barry,
You were right about Hawaii. They really impressed me with their defense. We knew they could score, but I did not think they could stop Boise state. I think I was drunk when I responded back, so excuse me if I was a bit harsh.

Jay,
You were one of the WCAL's finest, aside from the Lancers' starting five. What are you doing now?
