2013 Debut Of FCS Pick ‘Em

Much has been made about this contest in the past 9 months, all I can say is that I’m pumped that this segment has took off like it has and it has generated so much response.

We brought out our version of the Nickel last year which Jeff proudly displays at his mancave, which I’m aiming for in 2013. That said, there are some great games to lead us off this week, so on with the picks!

  3. ◾Indiana State at Indiana – Indiana, but wouldn’t be surprised if Sycamores win.
    ◾(10) Illinois State at Ball State – Ball St
    ◾Northwestern St. at Missouri St.- Missouri State at home
    ◾Hampton at Western Illinois – Western Illinois should win at home
    ◾Dayton at (24) Youngstown St – Youngstown
    ◾Valparaiso at North Dakota – UND should have a 28 point lead at the half, at least
    ◾Southern Illinois at Illinois – Illinois
    ◾UC Davis at South Dakota – A Big Sky school not afraid of going to Vermillion and pays off, UC Davis
    ◾(3) Eastern Washington at (25) Oregon St.- Oregon State
    ◾Butler at (7) SDSU – SDSU
    ◾(5) Wofford at Baylor – Baylor
    ◾(16) Northern Iowa at Iowa State – Iowa State but again wouldn’t be shocked if N Iowa wins
    ◾Appalachian State at (22) Montana – App St. App St making the move up and Montana’s program faltered big time last year. Maybe home field helps, but… no longer fear the Griz.
    FBS GAME OF THE WEEK
    ◾(12) LSU at (20) TCU – LSU, even though TCU can win this at home.

  4. Indiana St.

  5. Indiana St. will avenge last year’s loss
    Illinois St. will win. Ball State has no chance
    Mizz St. is terrible. NW State will win
    WIU and YSU and UND will win their no-contest games.
    Illinois obviously.
    UC Davis will beat terrible USD.
    Didn’t Dom pick EWU to beat Oregon State in the video blog?
    SDSU will win.
    Baylor will beat Wofford.
    Iowa St. UNI has no chance.
    Appalachian State will destroy Montana.
    TCU will beat overrated LSU.

  6. UND playing Valapariso? Now isn’t that interestin?. Didn’t the GF press and UND fans poke fun at NDSU claiming they were playing a DI team in their first game in transition by pointing out they are non-scholly? What goes around comes around I guess.

    • Right on OldGuy, the people in GF, the press, UND and the public, all had plenty to say when the Bison made the D-I move and now they have had to eat their words, swallow their pride and try to do all the things the Bison have already done. Go Bison!

  7. Interesting (to me) that some people are taking Indiana State over the Hoosiers, but no one is taking So. Illinois over the Illini.

    I honestly don’t give either MVFC team a chance. Hope they do well!

    On the other hand, Illinois St. should be competitive with Ball St. Interesting that both teams have nearly identical uniforms and helmets. These two could be conferences mates in the future, as ISU’s presidents has aspirations of moving up a level in competition.

  9. Hey Dom or Jeff, What do you guys know about Plankers’ little brother at Kindred? Is he a D-I prospect? Is he a senior and how big is he? Do you know of any D-I prospects in the metro or the region? Thanks. Go Bison!
