BCO's College Football TV Viewing Guide
No time to pout about last Monday night, the college football season keeps moving and waits for no one. The games are so good this week I could have easily done a twelve picker, but time limitations will keep it at six. A little pre-weekend warning, whatever ration of shit you have to go through from your lady to watch football from noon to midnight is more than worth it. The entire six pick of games are being played on Saturday. To come correct you will need to man the hell up with a case of beer, three TVs and lots of artery clogging food.
This week's picks against the spread are a lot harder, as the games have gotten better. Last week 13 people picked and the results can be found here. Please keep picking and if you missed out last week, that's OK, it's not too late to start. All picks are against the spread, straight up would be too easy.
So let's take a look at what I'll be viewing while being a couch warrior on Saturday.

Looking for the second best SEC team this year after just one week? Might not want to look any further than the Gamecocks. Yes, they only beat up on Southern Miss, but they did what they needed to do, right fighting Ackbars? More importantly Steve Spurrier is talking shit again, that must mean he is confident in his product. He called out Tennessee for dropping UNC off their schedule for being too tough. Then he discussed John Blake's "recruiting practices" before he "resigned" from North Carolina. Maybe not a vintage barb like "Free Shoes University" in the '90s, but he's been noticeably more vocal this year. The game misses a smug Ole Ball Coach, a sincere "Welcome Back" from the BCO.
What to watch for: Will the Dawg's newly installed 3-4 defense cause problems for the Spurrier attack, that features a heavier ground game? Will it be difficult for Mark Richt be that offensive guru he has been in years past with WR A.J. Green sitting out four games for selling his jersey?
Pick: The Gamecocks to win and cover.
