It’s the most wonderful time of the year! College Football season! Before we dive into the picks, let me get a couple of things out of the way.
You may be wondering why there’s been a lack of material posted here on the website? Well, there are several reasons. Let me just give you a few. First, I am in the middle of writing my dissertation for my doctorate. So any spare time I have to write usually goes to that. Second, most of the material I’ve written over the summer has gone to Biltmore Church’s resource site www.beyondsunday.church. Third, a great deal of my time has also been dedicated to getting Biltmore’s Franklin Campus a permanent facility. After a couple of hiccups, we are currently in the middle of 30 days of prayer about this. I would love for you to check out my daily posts for this at www.facebook.com/biltmorefranklin. Now that Fall is almost here, I’ll get back to the weekly picks as well as some other material here on the site.
Now…on to the fun stuff! Last year I went 165-56 on my picks. Since it’s Week 1, let me remind you of a few disclaimers about my weekly picks:
- I will never pick against Auburn. Ever. Period. Get over it. War Eagle!
- I will always pick SEC games regardless of their opponents. Again, I’m bias. Get over it.
- Beyond that, I’ll pick other games I think are high profile and/or exciting.
- Once the College Football Playoff Committee releases their Top 25, I will pick the Top 15 teams PLUS any SEC teams that aren’t in the rankings.
- I’ll only pick winners and losers, no points or spread predictions.
Now that all of that is out of the way, let’s have some fun and get to picking!
