FTRS Picks Week 12: I want off Mr. Buzz’s Wild Ride

I am not enjoying myself right now

NCAA Football: Miami at Georgia Tech Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

results from last week

Three way tie at the top again this week. GTSMURF, is it 2023 yet?, and RamblinRocketman share the top spot with 8 correct picks each.

aknartrebna is back to being tied at the top as a late season run by Philip Kaltman has led to him being neck and neck with aknartrebna. We also have ties at the second spot and 3rd spot only a few points behind. With only a few weeks left things are getting more interesting.

NCAA Football: Miami at Georgia Tech Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

That game hurt for a few reasons. The injury, the near certainty of not being in a bowl game, the ugly score... Needless to say it was not fun. I don’t blame people for wanting off the sinking ship of the season. I dare to believe we will see some more brilliance from the Jackets before this season is over, but its gonna be a rough ride for sure.

NCAA Football: Texas Tech at Texas Christian Raymond Carlin III-USA TODAY Sports

I’m not even changing the photo, TCU just has to keep winning to be in the playoff. That doesn’t mean its over, but things sure seem positive for the horned frogs. Good for them.

NCAA Football: Louisiana State at Arkansas Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

LSU has succeeded in winning the SEC West. What a turnaround from their start to the season. Hopefully they can make some magic happen in the SEC championship.

NCAA Football: Purdue at Illinois Ron Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

Illinois messed up by Losing to Purdue, now the Big 10 West is open for 4 teams to potentially go to the BIG 10 Championship. Good thing I love chaos.

I don’t have as much to say about last week as I did about the previous few weeks. I think things are becoming clearer, but Tech losing that last game took a lot out of me. Don’t have a lot of time so this week I’m gonna do a speed run on picks so here we go.
