1. Nevada......this bunch cost me a W last week
2. Cincinnati... last Sunday morning I asked myself, “WTF were you thinking?”
3. Kansas State.... my beloved Mountaineers are going to have to show me
4. Tulane..... reminds me of the Country Roads in Wild and Wonderful West Virginia
5. UCF...... Holgorsen is all about offense, some things never change
6. Arkansas State... flipped a coin, it came up heads
7. UAB.....we’re cancelling football, uh, on second thought
8. LSU...... uh, Auburn did show they could run the ball last weekend
9. Indiana....quit whining Penn State, a brain fart and a missed chip shot FG is what beat you
10. Iowa.... another coin flip, came up tails
11. TCU... I decided to take my own advice and not bet against Gary Patterson
12. Okie State... maybe the Cowboys will sing ‘The Eyes of Texas Are Upon You’, good grief!!
13. Virginia Tech... a Hokie Fan told me last weekend, “These guys suck”, we’ll see
14. North Texas..... somewhere North of McAllen I suppose *****COVIDED*****
15. Boise State...... because they’re Boise State
16. Ohio State...... tell the Equipment Manager to take some Crying Towels and Fabreeze
17. Texas A&M..... does anybody actually root for Jimbo Fisher????
18. SMU...... this is what a cow with a lisp says
19. North Carolina..... can’t stand Carolina, but love Mack Brown
20. Ragin’ Cajuns...... I can relate to ‘Ragin’ the way my Beloved Mountaineers have played
