2021 PICK SIX WEEK 3 - Family Reunion HateWeek

Let's all give a hearty, Pick 6 "Screw You, buddy!" to maxANDcheese for their magical 6-0 run last weekend.

In other news, I set the games and then forgot to make my picks.

You're welcome.

Here's the thing about this week's games: We play the cousins, UNC/UVA are essentially snobby twins trying to out-privilege each other, Alabama and Florida are fighting over who gets to inherit the family swamp, Florida State and Wake Forest...ok bad example. Also, those relatives you want to pretend you don't have: BYU, Penn State, and Auburn are here.

Also, Arizona State keeps getting asked questions about how they're doing but people are confusing them with their older, crappier sibling. The people acknowledge the error and then keep doing it.

I really hate so many of these teams.
(15) VIRGINIA TECH HOKIES at 50,000 FANS 6 LAST NAMES (RICH ROD'S TEARS -2.5)
I hope we smoke these clowns like it's their hometown on a Sunday morning.

Starting off strong with the Hokies being ranked underdogs to an unranked home team.

(1) ALABAMA at (11) FLORIDA (BAMA -15.5)
Blanket statement: No P5 Florida teams are bak/good until they win their conference again.
FLORIDA STATE at WAKE FOREST (WtForest -6.5)
Can Jacksonville State beat FSU 2 weeks in a row? I hope so.
loluva at UNCheat (Made Brown's Team -8.5)
"You're so smug, you smell your own farts!"

The most contentious part of this crowd is if someone doesn't chill the white wine properly.

(19) ARIZONA STATE at (23) BYU (ASU -2.5)
How little respect does Arizona State get? Not only did AP voters mistake them for Arizona 2 weeks in a row, I couldn't even find a gif of Herm as ASU's head coach.
(22) AUBURN at (10) PENN STATE (psu -6.5)


War Damn Eagle.

For those of us old enough to remember when VH1 was some upstart MTV knock-off, here's the CBSSPORTS link.

Don't forget to do that thing you put off while reading this. I forget what it was, but it seemed important.

Hokies
Bama
Wake
Meteor become crashing into the stadium....fine, I'll say it. I'm going to complain the whole time, UVA covers
AZ State
Auburn

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

I hate you for putting this game on here - as is tradition, I have to pick against the Hokies and I'm not happy about it

(15) VIRGINIA TECH HOKIES at 50,000 FANS 6 LAST NAMES (RICH ROD'S TEARS -2.5) I think the Hokies will win this but I have to pick against them (tradition, ya know?)
(1) ALABAMA at (11) FLORIDA (BAMA -15.5) I will pick Bama to cover the spread until they give me any reason not to
FLORIDA STATE at WAKE FOREST (WtForest -6.5) I think FSU is just really bad this year. And Wake probably has a good coach, even though I have no idea who it is.
loluva at UNCheat (Made Brown's Team -8.5) UVA has had UNCs number lately and I think UNC isn't that good and I'm worried that UVA is actually pretty good. UNCs defense is garbage and Armstrong is actually playing like a decent QB. I think UVA will score more points than UNC. A lot more.
(19) ARIZONA STATE at (23) BYU (ASU -2.5) I have no idea ?
(22) AUBURN at (10) PENN STATE (psu -6.5) I will continue to pick SEC schools against B1G schools not named anOSU until given a reason not to

Would extend that to Wisconsin, and mention that Auburn has a bad recent history against B1G in bowl games. Wisconsin, Northwestern, and Minnesota losses in the last 6 years, with a pantsing of Purdue thrown in for good measure. Further, Auburn is 4-5 against B1G teams since 2000 and 1-3 since 2010.

I'm an Auburn alum and think it's a hard L this weekend because Nix is too inconsistent. #WDE

that's good info...I didn't know all that. I hope your War Eagles Tigers pull it off. I really, really hate Penn State

Maybe they should throw in that freshman QB

I will graciously accept my most improved award this week:

Hokies

BAMA covers and Florida keeps doing whatever this is:

The Deacs cover and you know the rest:

UVA covers, but doesn't win. Karen will be happy the stadium is quiet so she can enjoy her white zinfandel and asking for a manager.

BYU overcomes temptation and puts those devil's in their place

War damn Eagle, fuck Peen State

Beer pick: whatever I can get my hands on up in Maine this weekend.

If you feel the leather in your hand let it rip.

*whispers Allagash White. whispers bring some to the Notre Dame game and give it to me for some Hardee's coupons*

Good picks btw.

I wish I was going to the ND game. I have to go to a wedding in VA Beach that weekend and the groom is a hokie no less.

@BuryHokie #ThanksFrank

Definitely going here and hoping to pick up some Vermont and other weird NE stuff at Portland Beer Hub that I can't get in the Commonwealth.

I hate this week and sit in solidarity with VPIhokieME:

(15) VIRGINIA TECH HOKIES at 50,000 FANS 6 LAST NAMES (RICH ROD'S TEARS -2.5) Concerned they play that mobile QB and we struggle on offense.

(1) ALABAMA at (11) FLORIDA (BAMA -15.5) Please keep putting Bama on these pics for EZ covers. Bama and no one close

FLORIDA STATE at WAKE FOREST (WtForest -6.5) No one can stop FSU. Just kidding litterally everyone can stop FSU
loluva at UNCheat (Made Brown's Team -8.5) This one is going to be close. I think UNC wins UVA covers.

(19) ARIZONA STATE at (23) BYU (ASU -2.5) No idea but it sounds right.

(22) AUBURN at (10) PENN STATE (psu -6.5) Fuck you Penn State

(add if applicable) /s

Hokies
Alabama
Wake
UVA covers. I don't know if UNC can block UVA's nose. He is a good player, and UNC's center was destroyed by Kendrick and Pollard.
BYU
Auburn

Five star get after it 100 percent Juice Key-Playing. MAN

(15) VIRGINIA TECH HOKIES at 50,000 FANS 6 LAST NAMES (RICH ROD'S TEARS -2.5)
(1) ALABAMA at (11) FLORIDA (BAMA -15.5)
FLORIDA STATE at WAKE FOREST (WtForest -6.5)
loluva at UNCheat (Made Brown's Team -8.5)
(19) ARIZONA STATE at (23) BYU (ASU -2.5)
(22) AUBURN at (10) PENN STATE (psu -6.5)

HOKIES of course
Bama because I have no faith in Florida
Wake Forest because I have even less faith in Florida State
I'm absolutely pulling for UNC, but faithlessly... loluva to cover
BYU wins outright at home
Auburn covers, at least

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

WVU
BAMA
FL State
UVA
AZ State
AUBURN

Have mercy. Living with French is hard y'all.

VT- The Cuz'ns keep it close early but we make it fairly comfortable by 4th quarter.

BAMA- This game will be closer than expected but BAMA wins it

FSU- Bounce back game for the Noles.

UNC- This is the game were we realize it was good to get the Heels early.

BYU- I got nothing...πŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ

AUBURN- The Tiger D controls the line of scrimmage.

BAMA- This game will be closer than expected but BAMA wins it

just a friendly reminder that you're picking against the spread, not picking winners. If you think that Bama winning by 16+ is still "closer than expected" then fine. If you're expecting Bama to win by less than 15 points then you need to switch your pick to Florida

VT(Can't pick against the Hokies)
Bama(Can anyone stay with Bama this year)
Wake(I hope FSU is as bad as I think they are)
LOLUVA(I hope they cover and lose)
BYU(Go with the home team to cover)
Pedo State(Hard to bet against them at home)

Doesn't matter if it's cake or pie as long as it's chocolate.

Hokie Hi!
Fighting Sabans
Seminoles
LOLUVA - I feel really greasy after saying that...
Mormons
War Eagle

Take the shortest route to the ball and arrive in bad humor.
