5-at-10: College football extra-ganza

Remember about Friday's mailbag. We have loads to cover. From the "Talks too much studios," here we go.

We're here. Finally.

We have offered a top-five list daily for the last two weeks. Some were light-hearted (we loved the nation's top five coaching pirates) some were more focused.

Today, we offer some of each.

Since college football is all about polls — at least for the next two years — and rankings, let's kick of the season with the first ever 5-at-10 with five top fives. Hang on, and kids, don't try this at home.

Five predictions

1) Alabama will play USC for the national title. And Tennessee fans will have to face the choice of cheering for Bama or Lane Kiffin. That's hardly a reach since those are two of the preseason heavyweights. That said, West Virginia and FSU will be bellyaching greatly — and longing for the playoff on the horizon — when they are narrowly left on the outside looking in at the title game.

2) Tennessee will win eight games. It will be enough for Dooley to keep his job but not enough to quiet the anti-Dooley contingent or sway a big portion of those Johnny Vols Fans who still don't know if Dooley is the guy that can restore the Orange.

3) UTC will win eight regular-season games and make its first playoff appearance since 1984.

4) Georgia will face Alabama in the SEC title game with a chance to play in the BCS championship with a win.

5) Matt Barkley will win the Heisman. He will be sitting with fellow quarterbacks Geno Smith, E.J. Manuel and Aaron Murray and Wisconsin running back Montee Ball in NYC when his name is called.

Fab 4 picks plus one

Last year we finished 58-30-2 against the spread. And we were 1-8 picking games involving Clemson. (How poorly were we in picking Clemson games? We had them in their bowl match-up against West Virginia when the Mountaineers scored 70 and made Kevin Steele cry.)

Here's three quick things about a 58-30-2 mark against the spread — it likely won't be matched, we definitely won't pick a game involving Clemson, and if it is matched, don't share your source with your "friends" with last names that end in vowels and who answers phones on Saturday morning saying, "Who you got?" We enjoy having functional thumbs. (Side note: As good as we were at picking games last year — 58-30-2 is 66 percent — we were 88 percent wrong on Clemson. So, using inverse principles and "opposite day" logic we all learned in elementary school, we should just pick the Clemson game and everyone go the other way. Makes perfect sense, right?)

Here's our Fab 4 (plus one) picks:

1) Love South Carolina tonight laying the 7 (buy the half point). Three quick reasons why: Vandy is going to be better, but that's a better Vandy, which still has a way to go. Marcus Lattimore is back. And as much as we like James Franklin, he's no Steve Spurrier, who has had all offseason to prep for this one.

2) We like Alabama to cover the 13 against Michigan. Take the colors and logos away so there's no pre-determined views about the Tide, and answer this question: If a team had the best coach in the country, the best offensive line in the country, an experienced quarterback that has already won a title, an All-America safety and no fewer than five defensive starters headed to the NFL, you'd feel good about that team right. Well, that's your 2012 Crimson Tide. And what we said about feeling good about Spurrier spending the whole offseason coming up with a slick offensive game plan, is multiplied by three with Nick Saban and his defensive scheme. Here's saying Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson is going to spend a lot of his Labor Day weekend in a long hot bath. Calgon take him away.

3) We like Georgia laying the 37. Buffalo stinks. In a lot of ways. Georgia has five running backs vying for carries, so when the game gets one-sided and Georgia is looking to run clock, the Bulldogs are still going to turn and hand it to a guy who is better than anyone on Buffalo's roster.

4) West Virginia minus 22 against Marshall. We like the over, too, but that's grown to a shade over 63, so that's a little dicey. Buckle up for the Geno Smith show in Morgantown. There's going to be some points scored and couches burned up there this year.

5) We like Ohio State minus the 21 over Miami. There are two real reasons why this game is growing on us: Ohio State needs a fast start and Braxton Miller is made for this offense. There are several more semi-reasons to like this game, too. First, Urban Meyer loves his family. Second, Tim Tebow liklely made a call to the Big Guy upstairs on Meyer's behalf. Third, there are rumors of a special promotion that a big Buckeyes win means tattoos for everyone — including Meyer. (Side question: If Urban got a tat, would it be a) the big "O" for Ohio State; b) the script "THE Ohio State;" c) his last name in stars across his back a la Tyler Bray; d) a portrait of his family or e) the phrase "In Tebow we trust." Thoughts?)

Five keys to a happy fall

We are blessed with a wonderful, healthy family and that allows us more joy and perspective than we probably deserve. Case in point, five years ago, when our son was born he was a day old when South Florida beat Auburn in overtime. We were holding him at Erlanger as the game ended and he was sleeping. The Tigers' loss did not seem like that big of a deal.

That said, this morning everyone is 0-0 and the future seems somewhat limitless. All is good and right, and everyone has hopes of big finishes and bigger bowl bids. It's the season opener. We can all dream big, right? Plus, anyone can beat anyone on any given Saturday, and as the 5-at-10's Pop likes to remind us, "that's why they play the games."

With that in mind, here are five tips to better enjoy the football madness of this weekend and the rest of the season, whether your boys win 'em all or lose the ones you care about the most.

1) As much as you want want your team to succeed, if/when that fails, remember to embrace, "The anybody but..." philosophy. NASCAR fans know this well. There's a certain amount of sporting joy in rooting against someone. Think back to the glory moments not involving your team. Most of them involved watching a team you're pulling against losing. U.S.S.R. in the old Olympics. Or take the Yankees in the 2001 World Series. Nobody gave two rips about the D-backs, but everyone was pulling against the Yankees except Yankees fans. Plus, when your "The anybody but...." team wins, it hurts way less than when your team loses. In fact, anyone got any ideas on who is the official "Anybody but...." team for the 2012 season. It's probably Lane Kiffin and USC, right?

2) Remember to invite your friends Bud, Jack and Jim to your tailgate. And if you are really polite, maybe Gentleman Jim will show up and all will be right with the world.

3) Come armed with one fact that will make everyone go, "Wow, that's interesting. That P-Davi, knows his college football." Here is one for each day of this opening weekend: (Beyond the obligatory knowledge of the rules changes about kickoffs that include touchbacks coming to the 25.)

Thursday — Vandy rarely beats Steve Spurrier, but the Commodores coaching staff may be the smartest in the league. They have assistants who graduated from Yale, Cornell, Wake Forest and Johns Hopkins. WE ARE VANDY.

Friday — Kellen Moore won 50 games as a college starting quarterback. That's the most ever, beating former Texas star and current Browns back-up Colt McCoy's record. Moore was 50-3 — yes, 50-3 — as starting QB. How big are those shoes Joe Southwick, who replaces Moore as the QB for Boise State?

Saturday — Auburn's offensive line two-deep has nine names on it since starting center Reese Dismukes was suspended for this weekend. Of those nine names, there are six freshmen, two sophomores and a senior. Exactly two of the nine have ever started a college game.

Sunday — Kentucky vs. Louisville. Hmmmm. It's not hoops, so.... Hey, how about this? With all the corporate sponsors Louisville has landed — Papa John's Stadium, the KFC Yum! Center — how is Louisville Slugger not more prominently involved here?

Monday — The winner of the Virginia Tech-Georgia Tech game has won the ACC Coastal division for seven consecutive seasons. That's a lot riding on the first week.

4) Know that any and every announcer this side of Herbstreit is going to irritate you a lot. In fact, we long for the days of Larry Munson and John Ward. Keep fighting the good fight J.R. Reynolds.

5) Perspective folks. It does not take holding a 1-day-old to know there are many, many things for which to be thankful. Including the start of college football season. So even if come Tuesday, your team is 0-1, remember that it's still college football season. Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.

This and that top five

— If you are going to Nashville tonight for the Vandy-South Carolina game, know that the Titans play in Nashville tonight, too. That's a lot of traffic downtown.

— There was some baseball played somewhere, blah.

— We're planning on being on The Show with Chris Goforth around 2 p.m. today on 1370 AM. Swing by, don't cost nothing.

— There were some other sports happenings around as well. It's college football time gang.

— The NFL is close. (Hey, this is the worst this and that ever, but it's college football season. We're distracted.)

Today's question(s)

  • photo

It's all about the opening weekend, so here's five questions for you.

What are your predictions?

What do you think the bet game will be?

Is there a crazy season prediction you want to toss out there?

Biggest SEC surprise?

If we set the following win over/unders how would you pick?

UT — 8

UGA — 10

Alabama — 11

UTC — 7.5

Vandy — 6.5

Auburn — 8

We still have a mailbag spot open, so bring it and let's go. Yes, we are wearing eye black in the office today. It's football time.

Jay - my predictions. Vandy wins in an upset. Sergio makes a strong run for the FedEx Cup. He's currently ranked 10th and he's playing well. Just gotta keep the putter under control.

I will give this a shot...Clorox Orange UNDER...Georgia UNDER...Alabama OVER...Chattanooga Mocs OVER...Vandy OVER...Auburn UNDER...

Crazy prediction: Little Orange dead last in SEC East Biggest SEC surprise: Missouri

Just one side not on high school football...who is the loon that is voting for Signal Mtn in the AP poll when they have lost their first two games...homerisn is ok to a point...but geez perhaps that is carrying it a bit too far

With College football practically "on" there's a lotta lotta today 5atquinn(the Eskimo). First off, Bama may get there, I don't know about USC. They should run their small table but who knows it is the (snack)Pac12. And this tough SEC can play a lot of tricks too. I'm a JVF(johnnyvolsfan)who would gladly take 8 wins but there are many "don't knows" about this team. They are bigger and hopefully more experienced but they still gotta win.Kellen(wins)Moore than any college QB. Well it is an amazing feat at 50-3 until you look at how many true quality wins were in there. I love Boise State, minus the Bluefield(which I thought was in VA/WVA). If one compares who he had to play over that span of time with some of the others up there in the winosphere, well it still is great but gives a different flavor. Kiffin and USC the anybody but...OH YEAH! But they will be a big contender. You did not say if one of the Vols' 8 would be NCState. I feel it is almost too close to call as a first game but I predict the Vols will win a closely fought battle and go on to bigger and better things. SEC surprise, hum, I will have to go with one of the two newbies, maybe A&M but then they don't get to play their first game until Oct. 13th. I know I know they'll be playing before that but LA Tech was suppose to be the first. BRING ON THE SEASON before it's too late....

Hank Fonda (Admiral Nimitz) Captain, are there any orders for me from Washington?

Maddox: No Sir, No orders beyond their concerns that Tennessee can’t cover 8 points.

Admiral Nimitz to staff: Pass the word, Fleet Opposed Invasion at the Georgia Dome against NC State. Tennessee by 10.5!

I like your prediction of UTC winning eight and going to playoffs for the first time since I was at home watching TV and pretending to be a robot truck shooting up Deceptions while the great Peter Cullian bellowed "Autobots! Transform and Roll Out!"

Or piloting the black lion from my other favorite show at that time.

Okay, enough about my past life, moving on to the questions at hand

I'm going to go out on a limb and say UTC WILL make Frisco this year. Based on the video clips and Frierson's tweets, I since a very strong presence in the Force that I have not felt ever.

The Dallas office predicts 8.5 wins for SMU given a pretty competive strength in schedule (see your notes Greeson). The Mustangs are no longer the local doorstop (June Jones was a wise investment) but at the same time they are playing some VERY powerhouse programs.

UNT unfortunately has a cupcake schedule that reminds me too much of UTC's past basketball schedules. I do believe they will get at least 4.5 wins this year if at best. They can only move up but their home schedule is not all that exciting.

Is it Saturday at 6:00 PM CT yet?

chas9 said...

Quinn the Eskimo? Is there a story?

Why does God hate Cowboy Joe? Another FSU starter is down for the count, so Fiver's prediction they won't be in the top two is safe.

Looks like Cats-Cards Sunday will be played underwater, so take the under.

Guess I'll have to invite Jose to my party, since there's no way Jay would welcome him. When Jose gets here, everybody's gonna shout and sing.

Jay-

Over/under for Dooley getting fired by midseason?

The key here is what record would require him getting fired by midseason?

I'm going to define midseason to include up through the South Carolina game, which would put him at nine games into the season. I think Dooley would need to be 2-6 there to get fired midseason. And even at 2-6 I'm not sure Hart would pull the trigger because the team could still finish 6-6 and you could fire him then.

Being 2-6 would require losses to N.C. State, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi State, Alabama, and South Carolina.

Even for Dooley that's a great pile of ineptitude. (Although to be fair it's likely UT will only be favored over N.C. State among these six.

The only wins would be over Georgia State and Akron.

At this point everyone would know Dooley would be fired, however, so maybe Hart would pull the trigger.

I'm going 15%, just because I think Dooley will make it to at least 3-5 and be able to argue he can still post a 7-5 record.

sportsfan —

We got you down for Vandy. And Sergio. If Sergio could putt.... wow. That'd be like saying if Cutcliffe could recruit. It'd be dangerous.

OG —

Not sure who's voting for Signal. Hargis votes in that poll for us and we know he did not have Signal in his top 10.

Maybe someone from across the state going on name recognition.

Livn(Large) —

It's truly a great time of year. Someone posted earlier this week that Masters weekend is the most anticipated of the year. This is close. Dang close.

Eight is a dicey number. Eight wins with a win over UGA or Alabama and then going to a decent bowl game is one thing.

If it's eight wins after winning the Music City Bowl and those five losses include some thumpings against Bama, Georgia, Florida and Spurrier, then there's going to be some howling.

FE to the C —

Don't have a feel on the Vols. They could win by three TDs and lose by three TDs. Scary game for sure.

Although anytime Admiral Nimitz stops by, it's a red-letter day.

MORE TO COME

Run JMC —

Wow. We thought we had high hopes for UTC? You got them making it to Frisco.

And yes, we think SMU is going to win games. They have the best QB in all of Texas.

9er —

Jose (Cuervo or Canseco) is unwelcome at the 5-at-10 compound. This is not open for discussion.

Jomo —

It would take 2-6 for the hammer to fall midseason.

And while we have predicted eight wins, so we don't see this being Dooley's last stand, we'll play along with your scenario and say this — even if he was 2-6 he would not get the hammer midseason.

The only advantage of firing a coach midseason is to get a jump on "unofficial" negotiations. Don't see that happening here.

We agree with you that if Dooley's 2-6 everyone would know the hammers coming, we just can't see it happening during the season.

And we feel pretty certain who your "Anybody but..." team is.

From friend of the show StuckinKent —

Five games I'm most excited about this weekend (with four bonus games): 1) Tennessee-North Carolina State 2) South Carolina-Vanderbilt 3) Auburn-Clemson 4) Boise State-Michigan State 5) Alabama-Michigan Extras: Washington State-BYU, Chattanooga-South Florida, Kentucky-Louisville.

UT- Under (I say 8, and I don't know if I think 7 or 9 is more likely. Pretty close.) UGA- Under (I say 10, but I think 9 is more likely than 11.) Bama- Under (I say 9 or 10. They lost 3 in 2010 in a very similar situation. I say they lose 2 or 3.) UTC- Under (I say 7, and a playoff bid.) Vanderbilt- Over (I say 7, and an upset tonight, since SC lost to Vandy on a Thursday night before, and Vandy is much better than they were that year, and the Dores are ready for this one. Big upset, right off the bat.) Auburn- Under (I say 7. A good team that is probably a year away.)

Big SEC Surprise? I think Vanderbilt could make a run at the SEC East title. I have them picked for sixth right now, but can see them making a push towards third. Tennessee and Florida could also make a push. Call me crazy, but I am beginning to sense that the East is going to be nuts- Georgia is shorthanded when they go to Mizzou, and that place will be through the roof anyway. I think the Tigers can pull that upset, and Vandy upsets South Carolina. That would mean that the two favorites in the East would both have a conference loss in division before Tennessee and Florida even play each other. This year is going to get wacky in the East, something tells me.

That may count for a wacky prediction too.

Who gets to the title game? I guess I'm going to stick with my LSU-Michigan pick, though I pick Michigan to lose to Bama. Every day I grow less and less convinced that Michigan is really at this level, but last December when I started looking at teams for this year this became my pick for the title game, so why go away from it now? I am much less sold on West Virginia- think Nebraska last year in their first year in the Big Ten and how they struggled to make the transition. Think about how WVU always seems to blow a game or two to unranked Big East teams. Now imagine playing in a conference where nine out of ten teams could be bowl eligible (sorry Kansas). WVU will be stunned by at least one team, if not two teams this year, and will probably lose at least one and maybe two to teams that are roughly equal talent-wise. FSU- I'm proud to be celebrating the 11 year anniversary of the "Florida State Will Be Back This Year" tour. It's very exciting. Let me know when they finish in the Top Ten again, and then I'll be willing to jump on the bandwagon. I bought in hook, line, and sinker last year. This year, I'm playing a little more wait and see.

How am I supposed to focus on work today? I hope that this season is as much fun as it's been in my dreams. I hope.

August 30, 2012 at 12:11 p.m.
chas9 said...

Stuck is right. The East could get wacky. I hope so.

Jomo's 15% sounds about right. He must've had experience setting odds. And DD stays with eight wins. Period. Thumpings or no.

No way The Masters is the biggest. There are way more football fans than golf. There are probably more college basketball fans, too, so Selection Sunday and the championship game are bigger than The Masters. Golf enthusiasts don't understand that there are a lot of us who plain don't care.

As stoked as I am for college football this weekend (and the Savannah Craft Brew Fest), nothing made me happier than to see this (and no, it wsa not Courtney Stodden turning 18).

The Jersey Shore has been cancelled.

I'll take the Swinneys, the Pack of Wolf and the biggest surprise in the SEC will be Florida.

Don't see Sergio being a factor. First, you really must putt. Second, dude lets stuff get to him and he can unravel mentally faster than a 15-year-old girl getting stood up on prom night.

Sorry, Mr. Cook, the Mocs will be good this year. But they are not going to Frisco. I just don't see anyone in the SoCon beating the Eagles this year and if they're at home for the playoffs, look out.

and for some reason, I just can't hear in my head Musberger saying, "You are looking live at KFC Yum! Center...." No. I mean, no. No. No.

I like the Bama vs. USC pick for the nat'l title.

How about the Mocs? GSU went down last time they came to Chatty and the Mocs nearly handed them a defeat last year.

mcpell3 said...

5- re the auburn o/u in wins. I count 6 winnable games. The two that scare me are the Vandy @ vandy and the TAMU game. Auburn always seems to find a way to lose to vandy when they shouldn't, and A&M is a big unknown right now. If they get those 2, then 8 is right, and pick up the clemson game saturday, then there is 9. Wins over UGA, LSU and/or Bammer will be gravy.

I would love to see the mocs make the playoffs. They are due.

August 30, 2012 at 2:33 p.m.
JonathanMCook said...

Spy-

Jay simply asked for the craziest prediction out there. That was mine. I wasn't trying to sound like an idiot or anything like that. The SoCon (football-wise)has proven to be undisputed SEC of the mid-level conferences. If they can finish their regular season at the top or in the top three, Playing the Yorktowns and McKeense States from other other conferences are gonna feel like a game of flag football with a side order of pattycake thrown in. (Hopefully you're learn to like my sense of humor).

jgreeson said...

Stuck —

Great FSU line.

And the East is going to be nuts. NUTS. It could be so wacky that any team not named Kentucky could get to the Georgia Dome, and we mean that. Of course, you could take an all-star team from those six East clubs and they still would be a 4-point underdog against Alabama.

9er —

The whole Masters week is the big deal. The Final Four is one Saturday/Monday. Baseball opening day. Then the Masters. It's a sweet blend — like peanut butter and jelly or Rice and Krispies.

This is pretty sweet though.

Spy —

Your taking the fighting Swinneys? Are we going to have to put you in timeout?

Who is GSU's money game this year?

The only brewfest anyone needs happens in Cartersville. Where they make Bud Light, by Golly.

We'll be there for Stew —

Hey we're in. Mocs to Frisco. Start the bus. Charter the jets.

And Bama-USC would be a hoss match up.

McPell —

Agree on the breakdown, and there are some scary games, especially for an offense counting on a huge number of new faces.

That said, the defensive line will be salty and that's a refreshing change back to the old days.

Not unlike the Vols, Auburn's season could be shaped in the Georgia Dome on the first weekend of the season. — 5-at-10

jay asked-

Who is GSU's money game this year?

I believe it is against Mother Athens (according to the SoConversation I read). Which while definately NOT a GSU fan, if the game is being played on either "The Deuce" or ESPNU online, I would watch (and pull for) the Eagles given the Mocs vs. Vols feud atomsphere the two schools have.

Southern's paycheck game this year is Georgia - a week before said Bulldogs take on Georgia Tech and its very similar offense to Georgia Southern's. Funny how that works out.

This Southern team has something it lacked for several years. Depth. Talent. And coaching.

Hold on. Have to go to the restroom.

Easy, Spy, easy.

It's game time, fellas. In fact, if you're still on the job you have the 5-at-10's permission to call it a day. (If you are responsible for the well-being of others, this does not apply. It also does not apply if leaving your work place would get you fired. So... if you own your own company, and/or have the day off, you have our permission to start your game-day festivities.)

JMC —

Thanks.

If the Eagles had a mid-level game — a Memphis maybe — we'd like to see them mix it up a little. Of course GSU could be a 4-point pick over Memphis.

C'mon, 5, when it comes to coaching, Chizik is better than Yabo Dabo. But I think having Tajh Boyd gives the Palmetto State Tigers a better chance. Too many holes to fill for the Plainsmen Tigers.

Plus ... they have VanGorder. He's not even Barzini. He's Tattaglia.

I can call it a day at 3:45 PM CT. But a good 5 at 10 discussion helps with the work day if its slow (which at my place of employment it is between August to October). Also, I actually do respect every single person in this forum believe it or not (as suppose to the members of the Tin Hat/Black Helicopter/Lord of the Rings is Real Society over in Clay's Coloring Book Land.

Until tomorrow...

(Blue)Jay, I don't want to make MOCkery of your UTC prediction but it might be a stretch to Frisco them this early. I do think they come out ready to go and put hurtings on some teams. NO STORY on Quinn the Eskimo, it was in a song several years ago. Commodores in the Dome....I..I..just can't see the East the Wackasized but who knows? It all begins in Nashville a little later. ENJOY ALL and let's have a great gr8 season of college football.
