This Professor believes in wise investments and it appears that Clemson and ABC have a blossoming relationship. By the end of this month, the Tigers will have been the featured game three times. ABC smells a winner.
I thought I’d just throw that nugget out there but we’ve got some really great games to prognosticate, let’s go.
South Carolina at No. 14 Kentucky
In my opinion this game should be over by halftime. Shame Beaver’s Rattlers haven’t had a breeze of a schedule and I see more of the same this Saturday. Mark Stoops’ Wildcats are on the prowl and they smell everybody’s favorite protein, Chicken.
Honestly, this will be just Another Beating Coming and it won’t be pretty. This Flunkie, South Carolina.
Auburn at No. 2 Georgia
I’ve said all along, Georgia is going to choke once, if not more times this season. It won’t be this Saturday but soon, and the Professor would bet his dentures on it.
Auburn will pay a huge price for having to play Kirby Smart’s Dawgs after the near disaster last Saturday against Ole Mizzou. I just read an article saying the college football media (except ESPN) are questioning Georgia football. Hmmm, isn’t that interesting.
The Auburn Tigers might need to get drunk to deal with what the Professor sees coming on Saturday in Athens. Another Beer, Cleatus. CT’s inebriated Flunkie, Auburn.
No. 8 Tennessee at No. 25 LSU
I’m sure, like he did in 2017, Josh Heupel is already being fitted for his crown, regardless of the outcome of the Volunteers season. Not so fast! According to former Tennessee head coach, Butch Jones, they will always be champions of life. I snicker every time I hear that.
The Volunteers head to the Bayou to take on creepy, instant cajun, Brian Kelly and his LSU Tigers. I suspect there is a painful welcome awaiting them. It signals Another Bayou Cajun victory. Better put the crown down Josh, because this might not end well, for the Champions of Life. CT’s Flunkie, Tennessee.
No. 17 TCU at No. 19 Kansas
At first glance, this one appears too close to call for most average predictors but for a Prognosticator, like the Professor, this one ain’t going to be that close.
I believe TCU might be the real deal, they’re humming like in the Gary Patterson era and I don’t believe they’re ready to stop humming. Well, hold that thought. The Professor believes, sadly for the Horned Frogs, the humming might end. CT’s Flunkie in this one, TCU.
Florida State at No. 14 NC State
Both teams enter this match-up at a respectable 4-1, both still licking the painful wounds that come from fighting a superior foe. I believe this will be a battle. Mike Norvell more than proved FSU is fo real and secretly the Professor is rooting for the ‘Noles.
Unfortunately, that secret hope won’t come true, for this weeks Flunkie, Florida State.
Arkansas at No. 23 Mississippi State
I’ve had my hopes dashed by Sam Pittman’s Razorbacks several times and I’m starting to hear…”wait til next year” emanating from Fayetteville. Everybody had faith in the Hawgs but thus far, they’ve fallen short.
The good news is this, no one ever knows which Mississippi State team will show up. Literally anything could happen from a Bulldog Blowout to a painful debacle. Only time will tell. However, I feel better about the chance of a blow out. All-in (on) Bulldog’s Chances. The Professor’s Flunkie, Arkansas.
No. 20 Kansas State at Iowa State
I might be losing it but I think there is something weird going on in the state of Kanas as both major teams are in the Top 20. Pretty interesting, but I believe the mask comes off in this one.
Matt Campbell and his Cyclones can play. He is a rising star in college football and his team will be the one pulling off masks on Saturday. The Professor’s Flunkie, in a toss-up, Kansas State.
No. 5 Clemson at Boston College
Strange things happen in the dark on Chestnut Hill on an October Saturday night. The BC Eagles always play Dabo Swinney’s Tigers close… for three quarters. But in this one, it might be just a half.
Clemson is on a roll and despite the Bald Eagle being our nation’s symbol of strength, these Eagles will quickly be grounded in the dark, on Chestnut Hill. Another Beating (on) Chestnut Hill. The likely Flunkie in this one, Boston College.
As we get deeper into the season, the games get more important, but as my favorite head coach says, “one game at a time.” The Professor will do just that and focus on the task ahead. Thanks for your attendance in class and may your favorite team never be a Flunkie.
