Someone forgot to tell Hlastradamus the college football season began last week.
Sure, he made four selections. But his head wasn’t in the game. He needs to catch the crystal ball before heading upfield with it.
The prophet was a woeful 1-3, dropping the ball on all three of his Big Ten picks against the spread (Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State). Only Iowa State delivered for him.
But he says he got his wake-up call. Which seems unlikely given the seedy sorts of motels he frequents.
On with the show:
Central Florida +18 at Ohio State. UCF is a good team. That’s the summary.
Georgia -2.5 at Missouri. Hlastradamus says Missouri isn’t an SEC team no matter what people are telling you.
Michigan State -20.5 at Central Michigan. It was very nice of the Spartans to sign a multi-game agreement with Central Michigan that takes MSU to CMU once. But that’s as far as tender mercy will go.
Purdue +14 at Notre Dame. You’re a lot fresher the week you’re in Ireland than the week after you’ve flown home from Ireland. Notre Dame flew home from Ireland a week ago.
Nebraska -5.5 at UCLA. If the Huskers can’t win this game in Pasadena, they have no business vying for a spot in one game that matters there, the one on Jan. 1.
As for Iowa State-Iowa, Hlastradamus says there is too much chatter about it hanging in the air between his condo at an undisclosed location and the great state of Iowa, so he isn’t equipped to make a prediction.
That, or he is cowardly.
