Week 14 is the final full week of the college football regular season. Join Brad and I, as we give a full breakdown of championship Saturday. This is also the final week in our year long conference pool, so tune in for our final conference picks of the season. We also go over our full bowl predictions. This is not just a BCS bowl discussion; we predict every bowl starting with the New Orleans Bowl and ending with the National Championship.
Join Brad and I, as we break down all the big games from college football week 13. We also discuss the BCS standings, update the bowl eligibility analysis, look ahead to Championship Saturday, and talk about the early coaching changes.
College football week 13 should have the BCS implications that were missing from last week. Showcase Friday highlights the weekend, but there are plenty of heated rivalries make Saturday exciting. In this podcast, Brad and I reveal our week 13 picks by conference. Brad also tries to hit his 7th straight lock of the week; tune in see who he picks!”
A lot of people are arguing that Ohio State is the best team in the Big Ten (a prime reason why watching ESPN makes me want to throw my TV across the room, I swear they have a vendetta against every single Michigan State sport). I guess I can see where they're coming from--Michigan State can be painfully inconsistent during the regular season. But if you had to pick--who wins the Big Ten? OSU or MSU?
I’m not sure if you are asking about football or basketball, so I’m going to answer both.
Football: I don’t like OSU or MSU to win the Big 10. I think Wisconsin will beat Northwestern (playing with a back up qb) and win the Big 10 based on the BCS rankings.
Basketball: I like MSU to win the Big 10. I think they barely win the conference, which seems to be the deepest in the country. OSU, Illinois, Purdue, Minnesota, and Wisconsin can all challenge MSU. I think the experience that MSU brings from their 2 Final Four appearances gives them the edge.
College football week 12 did not change the BCS landscape, but many teams are still fighting for their bowl dreams. Join Brad and I as we discuss what teams still have opportunities to become bowl eligible, recap our week 12 picks, discuss the BCS standings, and answer listeners’ questions regarding college basketball.
Indeed. When North Carolina lost to Minnesota I was quite pissed off. Who do you have winning the National Title?
As of now, I like Michigan St because of their experience. They are coming off 2 straight Final Four appearances and return a lot of players from those teams. Lucas, Green, Summers, Lucious, Roe, and Thorton are all back. Plus, they add Keith Appling, who is a McDonald’s All-American. The only thing that worries me is the injury bug that seems to affect this team every year.
Now that college basketball has started, who do you think is showing the most surprise?
So far for the early part of the season it doesn’t seem to be who is the biggest surprise, but who has been the biggest disapointment. That dissapointment to me is the ACC, who has struggled against some poor competition. Wake Forest lost to Stetson (ranked in the 300s last year) and VCU, Boston College lost to Yale, N. Carolina lost to Minnesota, and Georgia Tech lost to Kennesaw St.
If I had to pick my biggest surprise, it would be Ohio St. They looked very good against Florida. Brad and I will discuss your question on our Sunday night podcast as well.
In tonight’s episode, we make our weekly college football picks. Join us for a comprehensive preview of college football’s week 12, preview the big college basketball games of the week, and update our predicted college football conference champions.

"Sports fans get ready because one of the most insightful and entertaining college sports podcasts in the country is ready to be launched! Myself and my fellow college sports analyst Justin have put together an exciting new podcast show entitled “68 and 16 Sports”. The name is derived from the two most important numbers in college athletics. Sixty-eight is of course the number of teams who participate in the NCAA tournament, the greatest sporting event on Earth, and sixteen is the ideal number of teams to include in a college football playoff. Basically, we’ll be talking about college sports in a bold, “tell it like it is” fashion.
As far as the format, during college football season, there will likely be two podcats recorded each week. One will be published during the middle of the week where we will offer weekly predictions (including our favorite point spreads), as well as things to look for during Saturday’s games. The other will be broadcast after each Saturday of play and and feature a recap and analysis of all the action. Obviously, the format will be modified during college basketball season and details of that will come later. So without further ado, here is the inaugural 68 and 16 Sports podcast for you enjoy! Please feel free to comment.”
