Staff Picks: Notre Dame VS NC State

I think it’s safe to say we’re just throwing down our arms and displaying our awesome Notre Dame tattoos.

NCAA Football: Notre Dame vs Syracuse Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

Oh you tricky college football season! Most of the staff is struggling as mightily as the Notre Dame Fighting Irish this year. Poor Pat, and his horrendous record. It sits there as a reminder that the gods choose to crap on anyone at any time.

Speaking of crap... The weather is causing all sorts of issues in the southeast this week. Hurricane Matthew has changed the way the schedule plays out this year. In the beginning of the week our own game was in jeopardy of moving, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the NC State Wolfpack waited and finally saw that things should be “okay” for Saturday’s noon game.

On the pick slate, we have perhaps the luckiest team in the country going up against one of the bigger surprises. The Tennessee Volunteers and the Texas A&M Aggies face off in a conference showdown that should maybe be described as the “Lucky Bowl.” We also have a sweet #goacc matchup between two top 25 teams in the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Virginia Tech Holies. Is the ACC quietly becoming the best conference in college football this year?

Ask me again when Alabama takes home another title and we all realize that showing conference pride is more like tilting at windmills.

Steve leads the pack this week (sorry for the horrible word play), and of course Pat is sniffing butts. The rest of us are right in the middle of it all, and we are just waiting for that bye week to maybe get some separation.
