A little of bit of news from Picks Central.
First of all, This Week's Picks will be taking a brief hiatus from this award winning blog. When I say brief, I mean, a couple of weeks. Do not reach for the Xanax.
I will be out of town next week, but I will do a truncated This Week's Picks on my Facebook page. That just happens to be the weekend of the UGA-Tennessee game, which is always one of my favorite games of the year.
I plan to do a blog about my trip in the first week of October. So, that means another TWP on my Facebook page.
The second week of October is up in the air. My high school class reunion is that week and I have to prepare some remarks to entertain my fellow Wheeler alumni. Here's what I have so far.
"Cafeteria food. Yuck. Am I right?"
"Things were better back then. Not like now. Yuck".
"What's up with the Dewey Decimal System?"
"These kids today with their Hip and Hoppin music."
"My daddy taught me to believe in two things: The First Amendment and boobs".
So, you can see I some more work to do. I might be able to post TWP here, but it might have to go on Facebook. In any event, I ask for your patience and just realize I can jinx a team just as well on Facebook as I can here.
This Week's Picks!
Dawgs vs Other Dawgs: Remember the misty water colored memories of last month when you hadn't given two seconds of a thought to the Georgia-Mississippi State game? Good times. I guess when I saw this game on the schedule, I just figured UGA would win . Now, after seeing what State did to LSU, I'm not so sure. They are more settled at quarterback than Georgia and plus their coach is probably the second best coach in the conference. I know that might not be saying much, but it is true. On top of everything else, I know a ton of MSU alumni. Lucky me. Mississippi State wins
Bees vs Kitty Cats from Pittsburgh: It has been a while since we have seen the smiling face of Paul Johnson roaming the sidelines, looking for some 18 year old freshman to blame for a loss. Pitt just isn't a very good team. Tech should win this game. They will. Tech wins.
Bama vs Commode Doors: Another game, another Tweet by a Alabama fan complaining about the performance of the guys that squirt the Gatorade into the players mouth. "How n the hale can we win nuther NAT'L CSHIP W/OUT PROPER HYDRATION! LAME". Vanderbilt's coach Derek Mason is doing the Lord's work in the devil's vineyard, but it's not enough. Bama wins.

Wartigers vs Misery: Here's a question for you. Which state in the union has the most cows? Mooooooosouri (Missouri). Get it? Missouri is having one of those years: bad. Auburn should be better than they are, but they seem like they are stuck in second gear. Auburn should be able to easily handle Missouri. Hey, it's not like they are Mercer or something. Auburn wins
It is Five O'Clock Somewhere vs Who's Your Momma: Did you know that the famous blues singer Blind Willie McTell was from Statesboro, the home of Georgia Southern University. McTell wrote the song Statesboro Blues, which oddly enough is about Georgia Southern's season this year. The Eagles have only played two games, but they haven't looked good at all. The coach seems a little out of it, also. In any event, this is a money game. A couple of years ago, Georgia Southern could have possibly beat Indiana. They won't this year. Indiana wins.
