Behind Enemy Lines on Opening Day


Yo this is Nicky the Fish and let me be the first to wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR! Wow, it seems like just yesterday we were closing out the year with a victory in the National Championship game to close out a great college football season but we can’t rest on our laurels especially this season now that every pick in every sport will be documented on the main site with the Pigskin Pick’em contest (make sure you log in and play) so let’s get to it.

On opening day I am going to not mess with the JV games and get right into the mix with the marquis game of the day I am going to take Michigan (+14.5 buy the hook) going into Tuscaloosa to take on the Tide. I know it’s an SEC home domain on opening day but the NFL draft wasn’t kind to the Tide and they’re going to have to replace a ton of quality on D. Of course, they normally just reload in the SEC but those new bullets may not pack the punch of the previous ones and I’m thinking they may need a game or two to really galvanize. They may pull it out but I like the huge lumber with a Denard Robinson led offense to keep it close. That’s the opening day chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up.
