Tentative Predictions: Week 2

September 11, 2010

Frump's Magic EyeTentative Predictions.  They’re kind of like “Fearless” predictions, except we’d never advocate laying real money down — tisk, tisk: gambling is likely illegal in your great State, Frumpster — and we actually provide our readers with some ways to rationalize failure should these picks not come through.

College Football’s opening weekend saw Frump go a disappointing 3-3 ATS. We didn’t blog our picks beforehand — like we are this week — but we tweeted about it quite a bit, so don’t accuse us of making that stellar record up, okay?

Virginia Tech +1.5, Louisiana-Lafayette +29.5, and LSU -9.5 cost us, and keep us at .500 for the season, but this week we’ve got another 6 games that should push us into the green. If not, well, feel free to use one or more of the Cowardly Cop-Outs provided below.

So, if you need some rationale to make some picks yourself this weekend — or just want to make fun of someone else’s, even ours — make the jump for some angles on East Carolina -13, Georgia Tech -12.5, Rutgers -16.5, Georgia-South Carolina Under 46.5, Hawaii-Army Over 51.5, and N.C. State-Central Florida Over 51.5.

Naturally, this led to a discussion about who the greatest dunker we’d ever seen play in person was. It was quickly decided that, without question, the answer was former Georgia Tech star — and possible current “Will Dunk for Food” sign holder — Ismail Muhammad. That man could flat out yam, and we thank him for that.

Now, having a tendency to dwell on the past, when I saw the little ad in Muhammad’s YouTube highlights telling me to “Throw down SICK DUNKS Easily — Get a MASSIVE vertical now!”, well, I couldn’t help but smile. I mean, there was a time in my life where the prospect of increasing my vertical leap by up to 50% could be likened to how I feel about doing the same for my annual income today. Seriously, let’s talk more about this after the jump…
