thanks for joining us. These are the games we are watching this weekend:
BYU at UCLA.
The consecrated Cougars head to tinsel town for what may be their toughest
trial yet. With two unlikely wins under their choir robes, BYU hopes to
unsettle freshman QB Josh Rosen in the Rose Bowl whose sparkle wasn’t as shiny
in his second start. If they can get to the young signal caller early, it might
be another miracle finish for the Provo preachers. Either way, it should be a
lot of fun. Stanley’s Stinker, in an upset: UCLA.
Hello again, thanks for joining us for another week of Stanley's Stinkers. These are the games we
are watching this weekend:
LSU at Mississippi State. The Bayou Bengals opening game was
cancelled for the first time in almost 100 years and that tune-up may have come
in handy for their trip to cowbell haven. Dan Mullen and his hungry Pups will
be making plenty of noise and all that could confuse the untested LSU qb and a
new defensive coordinator. It might be close but in the end, the grass is not
tastier on the other side.
The Preseason polls
are all asking the same questions: where will the next college football
champion come from. Well, if statistics add up – and they often do – the next
national champion will come from Ohio. But don’t count out Texas and California.
Out of 128 major
college football teams, the majority of the head coaches were born in the Buckeye
State which doesn’t automatically mean that the next champion will be The Ohio
State Buckeyes. Their coach, Urban Meyer, hails from Toledo but that’s just a side
bar when you look at all twelve coaches from that state.
As defending champions last year,
Florida State had a lot of pressure on them. They had the reigning Heisman
Trophy winner Jameis Winston, and he helped them run the table in the regular
season to put themselves in a position to win back-to-back titles. Since then,
a lot has happened. Florida State lost to Oregon, they lost Winston and other
key players to the NFL and they have gone through a public relations nightmare
with off the field issues. With football left for the month away, what exactly
should people expect in 2015?
The Two Semifinal Matchups In
the first time ever, college football has an official playoff. It might just be
four teams, but it is a start for a sport that is trying to more accurately
decide a national champion. Here is a short preview for both semifinal
matchups, including some fantasy football insight.
the last decade or so, Ohio State has developed the reputation of being a team
that can’t win big games. They will have a chance to answer their critics when
they face off against Alabama.
The 2014 College Football season is not quite over yet. There are still almost forty bowl and play-off games left and Stanley’s Stinkers is back with part one of our post season predictions.
We finished the regular season correctly picking the loser in almost eight-percent of the games. That’s not bad considering the fact that we never back down from the tough fight. We use Reverse Prognostication to predict the losers in college football’s biggest games.
With the 2014
College Football season winding down, the play-off committee is studying all of
the teams in hopes of finding the top four schools in the nation.
While the gridiron
board stares down the winners, we continue to evaluate the losers. Stanley’s
Stinkers finished last week with a 32-8 mark leaving us just above
eighty-percent for the season. But, that is not bad considering the fact that
we never back down from the tough fights. We use Reverse Prognostication to
predict the losers in college football’s biggest games.
With the 2014
college football season coming to a conclusion, the battle for a spot in the
new play-offs becomes even more intense. One loss by a top tier team could
knock them out of a chance for the championship.
After another 29-11
record last week, we will try again Saturday to successfully predict who will
falter in those big games. We will use Reverse Prognostication to predict the
losers in college football’s most important match-ups.
With that said, here
are the games we have our eyes on this weekend.
While the 2014 college
football season works its way to the end, a number of teams are trying to prove
they belong in the new post season play-offs. The committee is studying every possible
winner and we continue to study the losers.
Stanley’s Stinkers was 28-12 last week,
holding our overall success rate steady at seventy-nine percent. That, however,
is not bad considering the fact that we never back down from the big games. We use
Reverse Prognostication to predict the losers in college football’s biggest
The headlines might
have called it a “shake-up weekend” but week eleven of the college football
season was just a regular weekend to us.
In a year that has seen more than a
fair share of upsets and surprises, Stanley’s Stinkers finished 31-9 last week,
giving us about a seventy-nine percent success rate for the year.
Given the nature of
the game this season, our rate of achievement is not bad; especially
considering the fact that we never back down from the tough games.
