If you check out espn, they'll try to hypnotize you into getting pumped about the Iowa v. Arizona game on Saturday. We're supposed to be excited because this is the only matchup where both teams have a number next to their name (plus espn is airing the game...so coincidental...more on espn in a future post).
I'm here to tell you what to be excited about, and I'm not any payroll so you can trust me (although I'm not at all opposed to any payroll...conference hr people...I'm talking to you...I don't care what it is...BYU, when you launch your network next year, I'm your man...seriously BYU, you want the number 1 spot here? Pay me under the table and I'll promote you like Billy Mays). Also, I have to admit for full disclosure that I have a leaning toward the Big 10 and Pac-10 (which both teams I mentioned in the beginning are in, so you'd think I would be in, but I'm not. That's not the Big 10 v. Pac-10 game of the weekend. More on that below. Also, my fave teams are Minnesota and Oregon.
Also, this is the first of these posts, so here's the set-up. I'm going to give you my top five games that I'm excited to watch and why. I'll also give the spread and my pick. We'll keep a running total for the season so you can see how awesome I am. So with that out of the way, here are my top 5 college games of the weekend (with spread in parentheses)...
That's it. I know there were only 3 games with spreads. That'll happen from time to time. Especially in these cupcake days. Give me a break until conference time.
