Pac 12 Picks – Week 1


Well, almost.  At this time tomorrow one Pac-12 game will be wrapping up, another about to begin, and a whole weekend of football will be staring us directly in the eye.  Thank goodness.  It’s been a tough last month without football in the sports world but the dry spell is over! 

This week the Pac-12 has a few games where they could make a statement.  Cal, WSU, and UW all have a chance to prove themselves.  UCLA, Colorado and Utah play teams that are okay.  The rest of the teams need to avoid being embarrassed.  The conference should be in good shape through week one and keep their national perception high. 

As always on the Good Guys, we’ll do Pac-12 picks mid-week and the Husky predictions the day before the game.  We’d love to have you in on the predictions.  If you’re interested, put your predictions in the comments and then I’ll add you to the weekly posts (along with your name in the standings).  On to the predictions!

The Good Guys Pac-12 Picks

Before I begin, I’ve seen rumors swirling that James Johnson will red-shirt this year because he doesn’t want to miss half of his senior season.  This has not been confirmed and is speculation so far but I think it’s pretty good speculation. Take it as you will.  Now, on to the post!

It’s the first week of Pac-12 picks and today is the first game.  Nothing can really describe my excitement.  I understand that some of you are bigger fans of the NFL and don’t share my level of excitement for the college game.  That’s fine.  But, for me, the college game is so precious.  It’s here for 12 or 13 times a year and then it is gone.  Those 12 or 13 games a year have supplied some of the best days of my life and always bring a fresh air of excitement to my sports world.

This week on our Pac-12 picks, we picked most of the same teams.  There are only 2 Pac-12 teams that play road games this week.  There’s only one Pac-12 team that is an underdog.  Most schools play teams that we won’t hear about again this season.  That’s okay.  For this week, we’ll give the Pac-12 a break on the schedule and just be thankful that it’s back.

Happy football!
