Greggy G’s Wednesday College Pigskin Pick

MLB Picks: 113-91 ATS - College Picks: 8-13 ATS - NFL Picks: 9-9 ATS

After a weekend that felt like the Falcons were not only recouping Ronny Mexico’s bonus money but yours truly, Monday Night’s victory was needed more than a new insurance policy for Trent Green. Considering I just bought a house I can’t afford, my girl’s filling it with stuff purchased on a maxed-out credit card, and fantasy injuries have changed my lay-away plans for the white-tiger, I need to bring the magic back faster than it takes the Cubs to play a postseason series. Speaking of fantasy and my QB Tony Romo, while I’m not hatin’…you can’t tell me he doesn’t have a little too much cockiness on the field and too much happy-go-luckiness in the locker-room for a guy who 6 games ago was fumbling away Bill Parcells’s career. To be honest, this weekend I’d be shocked if the Cowboys stayed within double digits at home against the New England cheap-shottin’ Cheaters. And I’d jump on it early boys cause it’ll be moving-up all week. As for tonight, you know what they say when the Midshipmen and Panthers meet-up on a Wednesday evening…you throw the records out and drink heavily to dull the pain.

Tonight's the night my college picks get back on track...


NAVY MIDSHIPMEN @ PITTSBURGH PANTHERS (OVA 53)
Pitt has allowed an average of 39 ppg in their last two contests (UConn & Virginia), both loses, and has been marred by numerous injuries on the defensive side of the ball. On offense, expect Pitt to look a little better coming off a bye week and their freshman phenom QB Pat Bostick to show-off his gun in his 2nd career start (1st start Sept 29th @ Virginia: 18-31, 181 yards, 1 Td, 1 Int)…not to mention the Midshipmen pass defense is absolutely horrendous (ranked 107th in passing ypg). The Panthers have a big-time playmaker in 6-3 Oderick Turner (2006 as a freshmen: 44 catches, 660 yards, 8 TDs) and another freshman star in RB LeSean McCoy (503 yards, 6.0 avg, 6 Tds) to balance out the attack. While Navy leads the nation in rushing yardage per game at 348.4, their defense has given-up an average of 31.4 ppg and kept every game close…and that’s not a good thing when you’ve played teams like Temple, Duke, & Ball State. Especially with both teams coming-off a bye week, I expect the offenses to look sharp and the defenses to play similar to how Dave Wannstedt’s career has turned-out…worse as the games progresses! What can I say, nuttin’ to bet on last night, this one’s on TV, and I have a half bottle of Knob Creek that’s always more fun to drink when you’re playing the OVA.

Final Score: PITTSBURG 34 NAVY 31
