Alright, Uh, let's get into discussing our picks for college.
This is where your college football score cast for this week.
Ah, we're picking mhm.
We don't have time or the interest, frankly, to pick all of the college games.
So we've picked the ones that are ranked matchups as well as the top matchups that involve the top five on.
Also, we picked Michigan and Notre Dame every time because those are the teams that were fans of.
So ah, let's talk about last week's results in college football.
Last week we had sir Yacht on as a guest picker and sir Yacht Man, Michigan Hat Ian Ritchie all went undefeated.
60 Congratulations, boys.
How's it feel to be four and two? It feels like I I really liked my Boston College's pick.
I picked Boston College to cover against Notre Dame, and they almost did it look good for you.
Yeah, I felt really good about that one.
Um, just because I kind of anticipated Ah, little bit of a letdown Game for Notre Dame.
Um, I I expected them to win.
I thought maybe it would a little bit of Clemson hangover, if you will.
Um, so I was really happy with that one.
After I started watching the Florida game, I felt like such an idiot for picking Arkansas.
I was like, Why did I pick Arkansas? I don't see any reason why.
I think I only picked it because the spread was a little bit bigger, but it was Yeah, it was the biggest point spread from last week's score cast. 17.5.
I think the point spread lured me, but I felt like I felt so stupid Picking Arkansas.
Arkansas is assault has been a solid team. This area.
If their head coach was there, I would have probably taken them in the points.
But yeah, that was a tough break.
So not much to recap other than that.
Just you know, you guys are undefeated six and oh, I'm foreign to so far going into this week, which we're talking pre show already that, uh, I know you two are feeling a little uncertain about these.
Uh, this board so But we will still never be wrong.
Yeah, well, why why are you guys feeling uncertain? There's just some big numbers this week.
Yeah, I mean, those ones.
I mean, that's the nature of picking college games, which, if you know how to play the numbers, can end up really good.
Um, just some tough games and then I will get into it.
But like a couple like Big 12 a C C.
I just don't know those games as well.
Um, it'll be good games.
It's just hard to get a get a feel for it personally.
Yeah, it's like I'm pretty new to college football.
So, like looking at these brats, they're pretty horrific.
And there's not much information with big time because you kind of started.
There's no like trends or, like, really, like I watch it every week, but just like it goes in and out basically because it's yeah, especially a team like Wisconsin that's only played two games to terrible teams.
Honestly, at least we're not picking the Pac 12 because I would have nothing to offer or yeah, that'd be rough.
Those air like amazing games, toe watch, but really tough ones to bet like the only time I ever bet Mac games as if I have a good feel on either the over under, like the over under for points.
Like the point total.
I never bet, Like, on a specific team.
I just don't know them that well.
So I wish we did over under, because if I didn't want to pick you them or team because it was too high, I probably picked over.
Yeah, maybe at some point, we factor in, like, a bonus point.
You pick one over under.
I don't know. We'll think through that.
They are fun to bet.
I just don't get very many of them.
Well, before before, before we get into picking these games, Man.
Would you like to run us through your picks for this game? I'm sorry.
Well, not your pitch.
Don't dio rules.
Thank you. I will name all my picture.
I was just curious.
Do you happen to have relish on you? Yes.
I dio through the rules first to make sure I'm able, like be all there mentally.
And then as we get into the picks, maybe all All right, I'm good.
Um, okay, so we're gonna cold.
One thing this relishes a good year.
Yeah, it's a good vintage.
Um, before we go to the picks, obviously we need to get into the rules.
And every episode we make our picks for every big game for the upcoming week.
Like you said, we're not going to every game.
Just some that are interesting or high profile or yeah, or Michigan, which is neither way each have a skip, which we have to use.
It's worth zero points either way.
Um, and, ah, lock, which is worth either two points for or against you.
Every other pick is worth one win or lost.
One point, we keep track of our records, and by the end of the season, there's going to be a reward for the winner.
So get ready for the best pick.
Um, show out there on the Internet anywhere in human history because, unlike all those other low level underlies the other adjective and I just blanked.
Jokes of those s get ready for the best show out there because on the score cast, we won't be Rob.
Wrong You're right, Right? Yeah.
So let's go to it.
Um, we talked about how good we did last week.
That should give us some credibility.
So you have good reason to trust our picks this week, despite the fact that we said we're very unconfident, maybe.
Please, Richie and I are, um Hey, here's an idea. Real quick.
So for everybody who's watching who may not know, the reason I brought up relish a minute ago was because the Man of Michigan hat don't Don't take it yet.
Just wait a second.
He on our show on his my podcast Frustration nation, we play a game called Keiper No cap.
And if you want to know what that is, I suggest you listen.
Um, but we he lost the last round of copper. No cap.
And his punishment is to eat in entire bottle of relish.
Uh, it's his like, least favorite thing in the world.
It is not a sponsor s Oh, my thinking of the oh, yeah, a lifetime supply e o just shows up in gallons.
It's just like, uh, just like a cement truck that just like I'm relish.
Uh, alright, so my thinking here is How about when you use your skip is when you will take your relish.
I will not be using a skip No rights that I have to use a skip.
So Okay, I'm gonna ask you this, but did really Rovio tonight? God, Yeah. We did the rules.
Well, can we like now you just get for the week and then, like, roll over for next week? What do you have to care for that? I think we use that each week.
Probably so that our records stay lined up.
I think it's gonna keep track of it, too.
Especially especially in December when we'll have college football, NFL and NBA games.
It's gonna be really complicated to keep track of which ones that I use skips for and which will save all my skips.
And then at the end of the year, I'll sit the whole episode out, Skip, I'm it.
So let's get into our first match up.
I'm really excited for this game.
I'm honestly kind of disappointed.
It's at 11, uh, central.
I kind of wish this was your prime time game, But number nine Indiana at number three, Ohio State Ohio State by 20.
Uh, Richie, I'm gonna throw it over to you.
So, um, I think it could be upset alert.
Honestly, if I think Indiana take this one, e would be so pumped.
Dude, that I mean, honestly, like so.
Besides, leading the huge is, too, for the record.
Well, he's pretty good with the passes.
He completed around like, 61% of his passes, whatever, but doesn't feel is a monster.
But I think in the end, it will do its best to slow down the game.
Um, so I do know the Buckeyes are gonna win this game, but I think I'm gonna cover so not really up that word, but close game earlier.
Oh, man, I hate this number.
It's just below three touchdowns, and it's just tough for me to pick either way.
Unfortunately, I need to pick it because I want to avoid the relish.
I'm later in the show on I'm supposed to be the Michigan and Big 10 experts.
I feel a knob ligation to you.
The fans, um so no running, no skips.
And honestly, there's a lot of other games.
I'd like to skip layers.
So, um, I think Indiana's a solid team, but I don't know if they're a great team.
And as much as I'd love to see them win this game, they're just clearly a level behind the Buckeyes.
At this point, Ohio State's also coming off a game cancelation, and I think they were gonna feel a little bit of pressure toe win games big From here on out, there's kind of that question of what happens if or when you miss another game or two games or three games.
Does Ohio State make the playoff at six and, oh, or five and over teams that have played 10 or 11 games? Um, so the best way Ohio State can guarantee they make the playoffs is to win out and make sure they blow out everyone they play.
So I'm gonna take the Buckeyes toe win this one big.
I'd love to be wrong.
Ah, this is this is a really a really tough one because of that point spread.
Um, Indiana is just looked so good this year, and it's funny because I feel like Ohio State hasn't been in many storylines because they've been great, which is what everyone expected.
Like if they were not as good as everyone expected, then they would be a storyline.
If they were better than what everyone expected, they'd be a storyline.
But I feel like they're just a good as everyone expected, which is why you don't hear about them as much.
But Indiana has been very impressive this year.
Um, I yeah, I would have a hard time picking Indiana to win this game, though I do think they I think of anybody Ohio State will face this year.
I think Indiana's the best shot to beat them.
Uh, this game is just very tough for me because I could also see Ohio State like you said, Man, Michigan coming out with kind of a vengeance after, um, missing a game, Um, so since that's a little up in the air for me, I'm skipping this game.
Andare skips, as always, are brought to you.

Oh, yeah, it's kind of insensitive.
Yeah, he's a legend.
It's one of those things that z back.
That's what it actually is.
I was watching the old SNL Jeopardy clips this past week and I was like, Man, it's so sad that like the two iconic people that they're ****fing in this skit are now both dead.
Speaking of dead teams, should we jump down to Michigan? Uh, should weigh.
Shouldn't get the segue.
All right, there we go.
Let's dio calling inaudible.
We're going down to the premier game of the week Michigan at, but gers.
Alright, Alright, I'll go here just to get it out of the way.
I let me just say I hate the fact that I still have to pick Michigan games on this on this show.
It would seem easy and obvious to pick against Michigan, right, And it was against Wisconsin.
But Michigan still does have just enough talent on the roster to win a game at some point that the stupid Michigan fans can label a signature win.
Um, so interrupters.
Yeah, this should never be called a signature win, but they're gonna win a couple of games this year that are going to be seen by some as solid winds just because they have enough talent on the team.
So that's why it's tough to pick Michigan right now.
Um, Rutgers is definitely an improved team.
They kept it close against Ohio State.
Relatively, they covered the spread there.
They are still in the bottom half of the Big 10, though.
Do I think a Michigan win here matters? No.
Well, I watch. Probably not.
Does Michigan win and cover? Probably.
So I'll take Michigan, Um, with no excitement or confidence.
Yeah, I, ah, I I could definitely see Michigan winning this game, but e I feel like the way Michigan's been playing just very uninspired football.
Um, just don't know that they're gonna be able to win by more than a touchdown.
So I've picked Rutgers to cover this game, though they may lose, I picked Rutgers to cover.
I can't hate it like, logically, it's a good big problem.
So, yeah, honestly, I agree with you.
I picked up here to cover as well.
Um, but you're just plain things.
They're dead to me.
Just like the debt to like every alumni.
Eso I don't know.
I'm not I'm not who's more likely to win a game this year? Penn State or Michigan? I think.
Win win another game.
I mean, E one, let me just say nothing to.
But like, Michigan deserves all the criticism they're getting right now.
But why is nobody talking about how bad Penn State is? Why does James Franklin get a pass for the UK? I've been vocal on Twitter.
I tweeted at you and texted you like like something along the lines of Like if you thought Michigan was that this year, how about Penn State going for? But like national media is not like, I think it's not because it's not like Michigan has, like, unseemly, better program than Penn State either.
You know, it's like I know Harbaugh has always got kind of got more media attention than James Franklin does.
But like he, it seems like every other day there's an article about the latest stats of why he's failed, why he's on the hot, see what is going to be fired.
And James Franklin is just nowhere to be found.
Just strange, just interested.
Hasn't Penn State like what? Like well before the season started, wasn't Penn State like considered the main threat to Ohio State? That's what everyone said.
That's what I said.
Like everyone was saying last year they were, Yeah, when everybody like Nobody was giving Michigan much credit this year in which obviously, it was for good reason.
But if anything, it looks that much worse for Penn State because they were hyped up more this offseason and they have the worst record there. Winless.
It's just it's interesting to me that it seems like Penn State.
I'm sure their local fans are ****ed off.
But nationally, they're getting a lot more of a past than Michigan is.
Just thought I'd throw that out there.
Well, since we talked about Penn State, let's move on to our final Big 10 matchup.
On that is Number 10 Wisconsin at number 19, Northwestern Wisconsin, favored by 7.
5, just like Michigan was.
But they're doing that here in Evanston, Illinois, on Li, like, 30 minutes, 25 minutes from where I live.
So, uh, I won't be attending because of rules, but it's a good reason.
E o what does and stuff What do you What do you guys think about this Game? Two undefeated Big 10 teams.
What you guys got? Go ahead, Richie.
Um, so I do look by soften the Badgers last week.
I have really watching watching the game this week or not this week, but like in the past, because I guess I know.
I know you can't bet on Northwestern like can't better like your own like state teams.
So I kind of don't watch like that because I can't get on it.
So I've heard they were good, but I do have some stats.
If that makes that makes it cool for a while.
Against the spread in last five games, that's pretty cool.
And Wisconsin is 15 and five against or straight up the last 20 road games.
But I like Wisconsin.
I think there are house right now.
I had Yeah, I you know, Northwestern and Wisconsin, both of these teams, I kind of like low key cheer for my team is Notre Dame.
But both these teams I'm like, I like to see them both do well.
And really, what this game looks like to me is a battle for who's gonna play in the Big 10 championship for the Big 10 West.
Um, I I really been liking the attention Northwestern's been getting.
Pat Fitzgerald is a great coach.
Payton Ramsey's really improved them at the quarterback position.
I think they can definitely give Wisconsin and run for their money.
Ah, but I'm gonna pick Wisconsin in this game as well.
I do think Wisconsin is outright the better team than Northwestern, Um, and similar to what you had said earlier.
Michigan had about Ohio State, like Wisconsin also missed a game already this year.
So there need to impress the playoff committee is at a much higher level than and the Northwestern's.
So, yeah, that's gonna be when I look at these games, the number one factor, especially for the Big 10 teams, that kind of influences the way I pick what makes caught really any kind of game difficult to pick but especially college games is what makes them so difficult to pick is not knowing how it's going to be coached.
So if the team gets up late like a Clemson, are they gonna take their foot off the gas, bring back up in a halftime and let the other team cover? Or are they going toe to try to put up big points and press the playoff committee? Like trying to figure out how the game is gonna be coached? Is a lot of the battle when you're picking these, Um, so for Big 10 teams, especially those like Wisconsin that have missed games, I think that's a huge factor.
Um, so you have just something for listeners to keep in mind when you're betting Big 10 teams? Um, Wisconsin is a really good team, even though they played some garbage team last week.
Um, I love Northwestern.
I really want to see them keep winning, but I just don't think they're able to keep up in this one.
Um, if I'm betting Wisconsin, I'd prefer to see this number below a touchdown.
5 makes it kind of tougher to take.
Um, but I think Wisconsin is going to cover 7.
5, and this is my lock.
So our locks are brought to you as I scroll up to the note where I read the Oh, and Master Lock and newly sponsored Master Lock. Yeah.
Um, where are it's probably shop that shoot your shot sports dot com.
I just found it.

Go check it out.
Oklahoma State at number 18, Oklahoma.
Oklahoma is favored by seven at home.
Um, I'm gonna start on this one.
These air two teams that I know less that these were probably teams I know the least about on our slate here today, but I just how I hold a little bit of issue with 18.
Oklahoma favored by a touchdown.
I know they're at home, but and I know that they have fans there, too.
I just don't know how much that is going to impact things.
Um, I don't know much about these two teams when I'm assuming it's a rivalry game, too, because they're both from Oklahoma.
Bedlam, bedlam, Siri's or just bedlam.
It's a It's a named rivalry.
And I think there's a trophy.
Well, it sounds boring.
Like life in Oklahoma probably is, Um, I have a hard time picking a lower ranked Oklahoma to cover that point spread.
So I'm I'm going to ride with Oklahoma State on this one, um, to cover.
Maybe when I don't know.
So I found a stat that just like the interesting But the Cowboys, which is also mistake the one forget the spread in the last five meetings Hoof.
And I do know Oklahoma.
They do like timeto like **** up towards the end of the game.
Like I do see like, the Does this mean that goes around like the bandwagon calling ****? Yeah.
Yeah, but I love that.
Yeah, I'm gonna lock this game, but I'm taking out the Homa.
But I'm scared because they might just like off the back of that game.
E I'm locking it.
Yeah, I couldn't go, man.
E could find things a lot like it's just how many games I really like on a slave.
I'm not copping any of them, so I think when I was like, What's common with stats? So I respect that this, like you said Kyle and Richie, like, I don't know enough about these teams individually to know really how they match up.
My main thing is kind of like you, Kyle.
Like the fact that you're higher rank a team that's a seven point underdog just doesn't sit right with me.
I'm really just as a fan excited for this game.
Ah, rank versus ranked rivalry game.
It has obviously big implications for conference championships, even though neither team has a chance of making the play off the one for the big 12 will.
Yeah, honestly, Yeah.
Um, Texas A and M, I think is the best shot in their five, right e think their fifth right now, which I was terrible.
Yeah, basically, Yeah, in a year when you have to a c C.
Teams that look like they're gonna make it and at least one I assume SEC team in one big 10 team, like, feels like the big 12 already out of it.
Um, I don't have a super strong lean on this one based on the teams and the rosters, so If you're gonna give me seven points to take the higher ranked team, then I'll do that.
Uh, I'll take okay.
State to cover here.
Nice is Oklahoma and OK, state it Z below average.
So I'd say No, it's OK.
Well, better Sooner rather than later.
A joke doesn't even make sense with what we just talked about.
Just makes sense because Oklahoma for the sooner Yeah, yeah, but my way People who are watching this Can you please comment and let me know what a sooner is? Thank you.
I looked it up at one point.
It's like I think it's the name for a certain kind of wagon or something.
I'll look it up right now.
Isn't that a schooner? Oh, there, I don't know.
Well, that's a boat, but I think there's also, uh, well, let's get into Clemson at Florida State number four Clemson at Florida State.
I almost said Florida.
That would be a good game.
But no Clemson, Florida State.
Clemson is the big favorites.
35 points and I'll go first.
Uh, Clemson's coming off of two very close games, both of which Trevor Lawrence was not therefore or he was there.
He was at South Bend for the Notre Dame game, but he did not play.
Lily has looked obviously really good.
I'm assuming Lawrence back starting.
I think I was trying to find out earlier.
Couldn't find for sure, But But, you know, the loud do.
At least I think you mentioned earlier, man.
Michigan hat this whole.
You know, the whole thing of be on Shirley.
If Clemson goes up big, maybe they put in the backups.
Well, they put in the backups.
They have you in Galilee whose look awesome.
So even though this is like a really big number, um, Florida State is not good.
Ah, they will probably be in a few years, but they're not right now.
And Notre Dame gave up more than I wish they would have.
I do think that Clemson will hold him down, and I think that Clemson, after a really close game against Boston College again after losing to Notre Dame and after a bye week, I think they're gonna be hungry to really rack up some points in this game.
Kind of get positive vibes going again for them um So that is why Clemson is my lock of the week to cover that huge 35 point spread.
I bet nobody is locked Clemson before.
Yeah, Anywhere on any show? A It's a big spread.
I know that. Yeah.
Quick. Side note.
The Sooners is the name given to settlers who entered the unassigned lands in what is now the state of Oklahoma before the land rush of 18 89.
Well, there you go.
Uh, let's fund now, you no longer have to participate with the show because the management had did it for you.
So things were taking away that opportunity to interact with the fans that Yeah, it seems like a good jeopardy question. Yeah.
What are a lot of jeopardy references? Yeah.
So what do you guys just picks for this game? Um, I will go on this, Um, because this is my hinds relish skip of the week.
Do you want some relish E o.
No, but we're all gonna be very quiet so we can watch the man. Michigan hat.
Yeah, well, let me get my notes out real quick, and then I'll let Richie touch on it while I your notes out before down the relish. Yep.
Um, Florida State's trash, obviously.
And this does feel like a game that Clemson wants toe win.
Big to get back on track.
But 35 points was just too much for me to pick this one.
Too many things could go wrong.
And it's been years like it's easy to forget.
But it's been years since we've seen how Clemson will bounce back from a loss like they haven't lost in the regular season in a couple of years now.
And if they lose its in the postseason, they don't have a game after.
So we don't know how they look coming off of loss.
Um, so it's just too much unknown, and I'm not gonna bet on this one.
Bottoms up on the relish.
Richie, What are your thoughts? Honestly, two biggest spread for me.
I don't like big spread, so Yeah.
It's OK, E still like big spread.
So I'm gonna skip it because I'm afraid I'm always afraid that these big brands, um, they So the other team I come back some reason somehow some way.
Like it would be a bad So, yeah.
Oh, would you rather drink a bottle of relish or a bottle of fresh co vid? Well, if it's fresh, then right? As long as it's not stale. Kuvin.
Yeah, I definitely have a big deal.
Yeah, he's kind of big deal a little bit. All right.
Final game for our college football picks this week.
Kentucky at number one Alabama, Alabama by 31 at home, which is another big point Spread here.
Uh, what do you guys thoughts in this game? I don't throw it to Richie real quick, though.
Richie. First I was a little preoccupied.
What was your pick on the game Last game? E skipped the car.
That's right. Yeah.
Eso for this game.
I think they're really I'm always been Alabama fan, I guess from 2000 also like, you know, I ne Yeah, I would say we're all tired.
That's what I was gonna say That I'm picking Alabama.
I don't know much about Kentucky.
I just like suck.
So I'm really gonna basketball.
But football, I don't I've heard nothing about like them so that they're gonna win by like a million.
So thing is a super side note.
But you know that there's like some homeschool family in Alabama who every Saturday morning makes like cinnamon rolls and dies the frosting red and like these air our roll tide, cinnamon rolls.
You know, I'm just thinking about Mom, and her denim skirt wakes up early to go prepare the tide rolls had outside quickly in the window of the giant white 12 passenger conversion man in his Skechers and his jean shorts pull shirt tucked in.
I can picture it now.
Um well, for me, from from one hillbilly state to another uh, mhm Alabama, Kentucky.
I'm going Kentucky because Kentucky has been competitive this year overall from the games I've watched of Kentucky and Alabama, obviously, is very good.
And obviously they I think they could win by 31.
Um, but it is a big number.
And even though I didn't use that logic for the Clemson game, I'm gonna use that logic for this game, which therefore makes me caught, uh, hypocritical.
But that's what okay.
And I'm gonna take and that's that's okay.
And I'm gonna take UK.
Do you cover this game.
Well, we promised we would never be wrong.
We never promised.
We wouldn't be hypocritical.
So that's right. That's okay.
Um, I I'm right there with you.
This is another big spread.
And I skipped the last one.
But this is when I feel better betting better betting, Um, because I have more faith in Kentucky than Florida State.
Give me Kentucky to cover the 31.
Alabama's coming off a bye week, and I don't know what to expect for them as far as how the book coach the game or play the game because it feels like there are a lot if they went out, no matter how they look.
So, um, and Kentucky has been pretty solid this year.
They just held Georgia to 14 points just two weeks ago, which Alabama couldn't even hold them that low? Um, 31 points is a spread.
You expect to see in, like, a Alabama Rutgers game or Alabama Michigan game, or like some huge mismatch like that.
Um, so I'm going to give more respect to Kentucky.
I think they're a little better than that.
And keep it close.
Well, those are our picks.
So, uh, you'll want to keep an eye out on Twitter throughout the day on Saturday to see what our thoughts around this game as well as what the results are.
Um, So I go into this week really needing a pick me up because I'm two games behind both of you guys.
So my best bet here, probably is that I get my Clemson lock.
Right, Because you guys skipped that game s That could be a big swing for me.
Um, and that's probably why the best bet for me to get back in it, So All right.
Uh, any final thoughts? Otherwise, I think rich you can close this out.
All right, so this concludes the shooting shots core cast for this week.
Remember to subscribe and never miss another pick.
So we should have follow us at Chicago.
Very of George and Man and Michigan had for all our gum commentary on the games, we all are watching.
So, with all the uncer*****y in the world, one thing is certain in our predictions.
Thanks to tuning in to see you next week.
