4th & Inches College Football Week 13- Austin Snyder- Raleigh NC

This is my personal favorite week of college football. Rivalry week.

Throw out the records. Throw out the expectations. Hell, throw out the analysis. Rivalry week is just chaos and anarchy. Like a wasteland simultaneously before and after the era of mankind - anything goes.

And speaking of rivals - I believe congratulations is owed to our favorite Gumpa.

4th & Inches College Football Week 12- Austin Snyder- Raleigh NC

Well damn. We had all bought into Georgia’s infallibility. And then Auburn came along and ruined it. Jerks. Us, not Auburn.

And Miami rolling over Notre Dame?! Last week was just a fun week of football. This week, however, feels like a time warp. Looking at these matchups you might think it was week 1! But rain or shine, they still play, and we still pick. And speaking of picks…

4th & Inches College Football Week 9- Austin Snyder- Raleigh NC

Last week went about as well as expected, but it was also a slow week that didn’t offer much competition. That’s not the case this week. Alabama actually has the week off, instead of just seeming like they do by cruising through yet another hapless team. But the Tide are the only team we’re watching on a break this week, and there are several interesting matchups for the other teams we’re watching. But before we dive in - have an update on our standings.

4th & Inches College Football Week 8- Austin Snyder- Raleigh NC

What. In. The. Actual. Hell…

Did anyone else see that shit coming? FOUR upsets in the top 10 last week. FOUR! Clemson may have blown it’s shot at another national title run - flinging the door wide open in the ACC. Auburn stumbled against an LSU team suffering from what can only be described as dissociative identity disorder. Meanwhile, the golden children of the Pac-12 North both fell face first in the dirt, leaving Stanford on course to face USC for the title. It’s absolute chaos. Clemson and Washington really shocked me. I mean, I haven’t seen an utter breakdown like that since the last week or two of Hillary’s campaign in 2016. Whew. I’m gonna need a minute… Let’s… let’s just check in with the leaderboard.

4th & Inches College Football Week 4- Austin Snyder- Raleigh NC

As for week 4? Well, pack your bags, ‘cause we’re taking this show on the road! Okay, we aren’t really - but most of the top 10 are on the road this week as conference play begins. Only nine matchups there as the ninth ranked Badgers are off this week. Must be all tuckered out from hanging 130 points on Utah State, Florida Atlantic, and BYU in the first three weeks. Guess they really need a rest week before facing… Northwestern? The Big10 West is an absolute joke, but that is a rant for another day, perhaps… For now, we’ve got picks to make.
