  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]
  • Found Family Books for the Holidays
    The holidays are quickly approaching and for some of us that means seeing our family. However, family has a loose definition. It could mean blood or who you were raised with. It could also mean people you’ve found during your life journey. Either way, the holidays are meant for spending quality time with those you […]

The BG News Picks of the Week – 10/3/2007

Today’s pick’em is like Christmas in July. Thanks, Fall Break! Today we’re joined by Rochester native and BG hockey player Derek Whitmore. He’s not a Buckeye fan and I can’t see many college hockey players being fans of Boston College either. Welcome.

BG @ No. 7 Boston College (BC -20.5)

Colin Wilson, Sports Editor: The Eagles have the worst pass defense in the ACC. They also love clam chowder and speak with annoying accents. BG 38, BC 31

Chris Voloschuk, Assistant Sports Editor: Every time I see the Doug Flutie hail mary, I want to puke. Nobody takes a national championship away from Bernie Kosar. Nobody. BG 38, BC 35

Brian Szabelski, Web Editor: BC can stop the run. Too bad the Falcons love the pass game, and the Eagles let up almost 270 yards a game. This will be close. BG 37, BC 36

Derek Whitmore, BG Hockey Player: I think the boys can do it and they have golden opportunity to do so. And I have Falcon Pride! BG 34, BC 31 (OT)

No. 8 Kentucky @ No. 11 South Carolina (South Carolina -3.5)

Colin Wilson, Sports Editor: Kentucky went from having a fat QB to being ranked higher than Florida and playing No. 11 S. Carolina. What is going on? Kentucky 28, South Carolina 17

Chris Voloschuk, Assistant Sports Editor: That Under Armour commercial with Spurrier in it is flat out stupid. “Click clack”, the Wildcats will roll. Kentucky 34, South Carolina 23

Brian Szabelski, Web Editor: How long can Kentucky continue to be the story of the year in the SEC? At least until next weekend, when they face LSU. Kentucky 35, South Carolina 25

Derek Whitmore, BG Hockey Player: Kentucky’s QB is too good and he is having a Heisman-like season. Kentucky 35, South Carolina 21

No. 9 Florida @ No. 1 Lousiana State (LSU -9)

Colin Wilson, Sports Editor: Idiot OSU fans were playing the Auburn fight song Saturday after Florida’s loss. Realize that the Gators would still pound OSU. LSU 20, Florida 17

Chris Voloschuk, Assistant Sports Editor: According to most commentators, Tim Tebow is God’s gift to football. The Gators will need devine intervention to beat LSU. LSU 41, Florida 20

Brian Szabelski, Web Editor: LSU’s defense is suffocating. Tim Tebow’s going to need a lot of success and luck for the Gators to win. LSU 28, Florida 24

Derek Whitmore, BG Hockey Player: Sorry Coach Meyer, I don’t know if your team can rebound after being upset by Auburn at the Swamp. LSU is No. 1 for a reason. LSU 35, Florida 20

No. 4 Ohio State @ No. 23 Purdue (OSU -7)

Colin Wilson, Sports Editor: Todd Boeckman reminds me of Justin Zwick in the sense that all the intelligent Buckeye fans will love him until he loses. Purdue 31, Ohio State 28

Chris Voloschuk, Assistant Sports Editor: I’ve NEVER liked Todd Boeckman, But unlike Tebow and Henne, he’s undefeated so far. It will stay that way this weekend. Ohio State 27, Purdue 17

Brian Szabelski, Web Editor: The Boilermakers offense might be phenomenal, but their defense leaves a bit to be desired. Ohio State keeps this close. Purdue 39, Ohio State 31

Derek Whitmore, BG Hockey Player: OSU is the hockey team’s biggest rival. And there’s too much scarlet and gray worn on Saturday here. YOU GO TO BG NOT OSU!!!! Purdue 35, Ohio State 24

No. 10 Oklahoma @ No. 19 Texas (Oklahoma -11.5)

Colin Wilson, Sports Editor: What’s worse, losing to Colorado or K-State? I don’t know but both these coaches support Mike Gundy. And that is GARBAGE. Oklahoma 33, Texas 20

Chris Voloschuk, Assistant Sports Editor: Oklahoma wins. Mack Brown cries. Matthew McConaughey smokes pot and plays a sad song on the bongos. Oklahoma 28, Texas 10

Brian Szabelski, Web Editor: The Red River Shootout is going to become The Red River Blowout. You don’t lose by 20 to K-State and beat the Sooners. Oklahoma 40, Texas 21

Derek Whitmore, BG Hockey Player: Big time rivalry but I like the Sooners in this one. The ‘Horns just do not have the skill this year. Oklahoma 31, Texas 21

No. 25 Nebraska @ No. 17 Missouri (Mizzou -7)

Colin Wilson, Sports Editor: Nebraska is home to Larry the Cable Guy and Mizzou is home to the best journalism school in the U.S. Easy choice. Missouri 31, Nebraska 24

Chris Voloschuk, Assistant Sports Editor: Eric Crouch bagged my groceries the other day, he mentioned that Nebraska had a good shot at beating Missouri. He’s an idiot. Missouri 35, Nebraska 27

Brian Szabelski, Web Editor: Yes, I know Missouri hasn’t had the strongest schedule, but this is their chance to make a statement against a good Nebraska squad. Missouri 28, Nebraska 21

Derek Whitmore, BG Hockey Player: Honestly, I do not think Nebraska is very good and they are playing on the road – tough environment for the Huskers. Missouri 28, Nebraska 14

Overall Records

Colin Wilson, Sports Editor: 17-13

Chris Voloschuk, Assistant Sports Editor: 20-10

Brian Szabelski, Web Editor: 18-12

Derek Whitmore, BG Hockey Player: 17-13 (cumulative)
