College Football Picks Podcast – Week 7, October 17th

Once again, I am proud to be announcing a new regular feature here at MSF: the College Football Picks Podcast with Jerod and the ‘Stache.

(Note: I didn’t come up with the name until after we’d recorded the first episode — and after I found two funny pictures to photoshop together —  so bear with me. Next week’s episode will reflect the “official” name. As if you care.)

Each week, our very own KVB (aka The ‘Stache) will be joining me to dissect and pick the biggest games on that week’s college football schedule. And despite KVB’s aversion to the point spread, I was able to convince him to pick against the spread.

We also discuss KVB’s thoughts on whether money truly determines everything in college football. KVB isn’t so sure that the conventional wisdom on this issue is correct.

Among the games we look at and pick against the spread this week: Cincinnati-South Florida, Oklahoma-Texas, Ohio State-Purdue, Iowa-Wisconsin, Virginia Tech-Georgia Tech, South Carolina-Alabama, and USC-Notre Dame.

And take note of this: so far during the NFL season, we are 43-31 picking against the spread. Not bad.

A quick shout-out to MSF writer Nick Gerlach and his band the Twin Cats, who supplied the music goodness for this podcast. The song is called “Dax McCarty’s Magic Elixir” off their new album Thick.
