Staff Picks: Week 2 Recap
Week 2 is gone, and some of the fellas had a rough week, but that's a-okay early in this weird ass season as were trying to get a read on some of these teams.
Marsh and myself claw ourselves to a .500 record on the week, Doc closes out the week with a much needed Miami outright win, while Scott... better luck next week.
Tulsa @ Oklahoma State: Ok St lost their starting QB Spencer Sanders early in the game and absolutely fell apart. They were on the ropes late into the 3rd quarter and never had a shot at covering 23. The entire staff gets duped by Ok St pre-season hype, Ok St over Tulsa 16-7.
Syracuse @ Pitt: Syracuse also lost their starting QB, then threw a 69 yard TD pass THE NEXT PLAY. Pitt went up 14-10 at half time then kept Cuse at arms length the rest of the game, 21 points never looked likely. Doc and Scott nail it, Pitt over Syracuse 21-10.
Houston @ Baylor: Cancelled/postponed due to covid.
USF @ ND: This was my lock of the week and I was shocked the rest of the staff went with USF. ND dominated this game from the jump and made my bank account a little fatter. ND over USF 52-0.
App State @ Marshall: App St game into this one after a ho-hum win week 1, while Marshall came in with a confidence building 59-0 spanking of Eastern Kentucky. Marshall's defense kept making plays, App state couldn't get on the board in the 2nd half, and Marshall comes out with an outright win. Marshall over App St 17-7.
UCF @ Georgia Tech: Really entertaining football game from the opening kickoff. UCF started running away with this one on their quest for a 2nd national championship in 4 years, but Georgia Tech has got something in freshman QB Jeff Sims. UCF over Georgia Tech 49-21.
Miami @ Louisville: So the Miami offense will come out as the national story here, but what the hell was the Louisville defense doing all night? Miami had guys running WIDE OPEN 20-30 yards down field. That said, even though I was on the wrong side of this one, it's good to see Miami back with some juice. Miami over Louisville 47-34.
Great slate of college football next week as the SEC jumps into action, stay with us!
