College Football Picks…2018

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 26-08-2018


Ok, I did not do football picks last year and I don’t know why, but I think I will again this year….six teams all year and probably two more random picks that have peaked my interest for various reasons. The six every week will be:

Alabama….State of my birth and the first team I ever followed. Bart Starr was one of my heroes. Probably I’ll have a W after Bama all season as I don’t see any one on the schedule that I think can beat them this year.

Arizona….My daughter and her family live in Tucson and my grand daughter is a graduate of U of A and works in the U of A Cancer Center.

New Mexico….Albuquerque is where I live. I’m a Lobo fan….Win or lose, I’m a fan. They do the best they can with what they have and play a pretty good brand of ball while they are at it.

New Mexico State….I went to school at NMSU-Carlsbad and there are three or four of my family who are graduates or attendees of NMSU main campus.

Texas Tech….A good school close to Carlsbad and in years past I attended many games in Lubbock and a lot of the students from Eastern New Mexico chose to go to school there. A good school…

Wisconsin….Yeah, I know….but I have a son who lives up in the colder climate of Madison and I hope it warms him some to know his old Papa is rooting for the Badgers. He likes football but his real passion is basketball and is a season ticket holder.

Every week several schools perks us up so I will be picking schools here and there to also pick.  For Sept 1st I am choosing Boise State – Troy and Hawaii – Navy…..

I’ll have all the picks on the site in the next couple of days….
