OT: Pat Forde burns Coach Frontbutt in bowl projections

Submitted by Michael From TC on December 15th, 2011 at 11:41 PM

Dash fact: In October and November games against FBS competition, Florida quarterbacks threw four touchdown passes and eight interceptions. Those guys will dearly miss the clear schematic advantage afforded them by Charlie Weis

Other nuggets: He has Michigan winning (shocking I know)

They threw those picks because the gravitational pull from ole Charlie altered the path of their passes.  They'll do just fine against OSU.

 His bowl picks where pretty bad concerning the B1G.

Osu will beat Florida

Nebraska will beat Sout Carolina

If Sparty decides to play their bowl game they can beat Georgia( think georgia wins tho)

Illnois won't lose to UCLA

Penn State should beat houston ( I saw The Conference USA title game)

Wisconsin will beat Oregon

Yeah, he had the Big 10 at 2-7 with U-M and Purdue as the only winners.

Ohio State - Florida could end up in single digits.  Good defenses with sometimes WTF offenses.

Nebraska should score more than 14 on South Carolina as long as they limit their turnovers.  I know that South Carolina is #4 in total defense, but I have a sneaking feeling that Nebraska will hang some points on them.

I'm with you here.  Will MSU get up the motivation to play Georgia in a non-BCS bowl?  If they do, I think the game is theirs.  If they don't, expect a repeat from last year.

Illinois shouldn't lose to UCLA, but I think they will.

Penn State wins over Houston because their defense will score more than Houston's offense.

Oregon will make Bielema's head spin.

Don't take this as a defense of Charlie Weis, but it's not like he set up the play to throw the ball to the other team. 

I guess I defended Charlie Weis. I will now downvote myself, or at least I would if it was possible.

Forde despised ND and Weis ever since he got hired.  He constantly berated ND for firing Ty Willingham after 3 seasons while always insinuating that race played a factor.  His favorite term to use during that time was that Willingham was the "scourge of humanity". 

Of course Willingham (even though it seems like he is a great guy) fell on his face at UW, and now firing a coach after 3 seasons is the norm.  While I'm not sympathetic towards ND, Forde never once admitted he was wrong.

Michigan and Purdue are the only B1G teams that he has picked to win.  Other than the Bama/LSU loser, Auburn is the only SEC team he has losing.  He is not winning his Bowl Mania league.
