SEC Championship Preview

SEC Championship Preview

Just like we all thought in August Alabama and Missouri will play for the SEC Championship this Saturday in Atlanta. I’m kidding. Nobody predicted that. Yes, the Tide was a consensus favorite to win the West, but most people thought the East winner would be Florida, South Carolina, or Georgia. In fact most Georgia fans think they should STILL be in the game proving my point that UGA fans are the most delusional fans in the country. They’re like that nice non-threatening kid in high school whose best friends with all the girls but will never seal the deal. UGA is officially in the friend zone as far as championships are concerned. Read More

TheRealPicks: Championship Week

3-2 last week.  Not great, but it gets the job done.  The most unfortunate part about last week was everything that took place in and around Sanford Stadium last week, but thats beside the point.  I’m here to deliver you picks, and to stay above 53%.  We are looking at another tough slate this week as there are less games to pick from and more tough matchups.  The breakdowns and analysis will be short this week, so your just going to have to trust me on some blind faith this week.  The good news for you, is that my blind faith led me to two of the most unlikely upset picks in the NFL last week, with picks on the Falcons and Jags, which neither team had much business covering, much less actually winning both games. If only I had the balls to give you NFL picks as favorites last week… Oh well, maybe that will change this week… ON TO THE PICKS! Read More

We need a Hero…(at Topper’s)

Some days you never know what kind of stories you’re going to read about in the sports world.  Is someone going to get traded today? Was there a crazy upset last night? Which college football players got arrested last night?  Many times the most controversial stories don’t really reflect or end well for the athlete involved either.  Today however, was quite a different story.

First Look: UGA 2015 Recruiting Class

The University of Georgia’s football program has always strived to bring in the best possible group of athletes to come and play between the hedges. Despite missing out on some top in-state talent over the past few years, the program has continuously been able to bring in top-notch players such as Leonard Floyd, Malcolm Mitchell, and most recently top targets Lorenzo Carter and Nick Chubb. The program has also recently delivered prominent out of state talent from Matthew Stafford and Knowshon Moreno to the more recent SEC record holding Aaron Murray and All Pro NFL wide receiver A.J. Green. Read More

SEC Rivalry Week: Part 2

SEC Rivalry Week Part 2

South Carolina (6-5) @ Clemson (8-3) -3 – Clemson, SC 12:00 PM EST ESPN

The Battle for the Palmetto State is one of the oldest rivalries in the entire country. It’s an annual dogfight of mediocrity where there are two things on the line: pride and a December 28th Bowl Game. This is a tough matchup to figure out. On paper Clemson looks like an easy pick. They lead the country in the total defense and have plenty of explosive weapons on offense against a porous Carolina defense. Plus, the Tigers really want to end the five game losing streak they have against the Gamecocks. Read More

TheRealPicks Week 14: Black Friday Edition 

Well then, while I knew last week was going to be brutal, I don’t really think I prepared myself as much as I should have. Or maybe just don’t give out 8 “strong” plays… Regardless, we went 3-5 on the week, and I didn’t even feel like checking my record on the Honorable Mentions after that garbage. Hopefully you all paid attention when I said not to go big on anything though and didn’t end up in too bad of shape when all was said and done. Now, let’s look on to one of the best football weekends of the year with our Week 14 Black Friday Edition Picks. Read More
