The Crimson Seer's <BR> Pac-10 Picks: Week 3

Spirit of Woody alive and well in Columbus? Farmer runs to greatness...inch by inch? Tedford Dynasty comes to an end? The Mystic One answers all of these questions and more!

UTAH at ARIZONA

Good news/bad news for Mildcat back Clarence "Fannie" Farmer. First, the bad news: He "rushed" for (WARNING: children shouldn't read this!) 29 yards on 16 carries against Div I-AA Northern Arizona! Now the good news: With that randy yards-per-carry average, Fannie needs just 554 more runs for another 1,000-yard season! Pick: WILDCATS

 

IDAHO at OREGON

Following a 49-14 loss to Wazzu, Idaho freshman DT Kelly Talavou said Cougs weren't so tough, yet could offer no explanation for the wax on his ass. Pick: DUCKS

 

UNLV at OREGON STATE

The Beavos and Johnny Rebs kick-off the new broadcast agreement between the Pac-10 and TBS. You know, in these days of greed, it's refreshing to see Ted Turner isn't hung up on Nielson ratings. Pick: BEAVERS

 

SAN JOSE STATE at STANFORD

So Calling Card QB Chris "Sprint" Lewis sits out last week's game for illegally using university access code to make long distance phone calls? You see, it's just what I predicted: Ty Willingham leaves and Palo Alto turns into a modern day Gomorrah! Pick: CARDINAL

 

ARIZONA STATE at SAN DIEGO STATE

Terrell "Mister" Suggs has notched seven sacks in two games! Scarier still, Diablos del Sol defense has allowed just 20 yards rushing in last two games. It's like their spring intra-squad scrimmage all over again! Pick: SUN DEVILS

 

CALIFORNIA at MICHIGAN STATE

It's been a joyous two weeks in Strawberry Canyon for Giddy Bear coach Jeff "Bellotti Boy" Tedford, but this week he'll learn why the term "Berkeley football" is an oxymoron. Pick: SPARTANS

 

UCLA at OKLAHOMA STATE

If you're old enough to remember Nixon's last few months in office, you've got a good idea what's going through Bruisen coach Bob "Bob" Toldeo's mind this season. Pick: BRUINS

 

SOUTHERN CAL at COLORADO

He may not bring the Troyboys back to those glorious days of yesteryear, but no Southern Gal coach - - not even Larry Smith - - has ever sported a finer coiffure than Peter "Clairol" Carroll. Pick: TROJANS

 

WASHINGTON STATE at OHIO STATE

To be honest, until the past week or two my knowledge of Ohio State football consisted mainly of memories of Woody Hayes punching players. Now I've learned from two weeks worth of Bugeye visitors to the Cougfan board that Woody's legacy has endured. Pick: COUGARS

 

Last week: 6-2

Season: 6-2
