WEEK 1 - Weekend of AUGUST 29th
The overhyped puppies from the East Georgia kennels open up their flea-ridden water dish this weekend, hoping to take revenge on some visiting felines from Pickens County. The Upstate’s favorite Fruitball and his well-paid kittens neutered the barkers last fall, and feel a repeat of the procedure is coming. But unlike last year, the home canines will be wide awake.
The Cockabooster Crystal Ball says... Georgia by 5
The Porky Piggies from the Ozarks trot their swiny hooves onto the Plains this Saturday, hoping to make the Opelika Scratching post into a pigskin trough. The fightin’ Malzahns caught a lot of gridiron serendipity last year, and the worm may turn before November. That won’t be the case in this matchup, and the other white meat is on the menu.
The Cockabooster Crystal Ball says... Auburn by 9
Some red-and-white rodents from Camp Randall roll into Houston this weekend, hoping to burrow the Baton Rouge Felines into the Lone Star State turf. The Big 10 needs a win by some group of rats this year in SEC Country, but I doubt the Madison clan will get the job done.
The Cockabooster Crystal Ball says... LSU by 12
The Georgia Dome used to be a regular stop for Nick Saban’s elegant elephants, but too much lemonade at Toomer’s Corner changed that up. The Crimson Clompers want two trips to Atlanta this year, and feel they have the tusks to get it done. Some sister-kissers from Morgantown feel differently and they’ll bring their backwoods guns to the Peach State to steal some ivory. They better be shooting just right.
The Cockabooster Crystal Ball says... Alabama by 19
Chris Myers and his golden pirates sail into the St. Matthews Jousting yards on Friday, hoping to raise the Jolly Roger and snatch some pigskin gold. The home lancers feel they have sharp weapons this fall, and Adam Jarecki will have the home horsebackers ready to duel. Go with the gallant gallopers in blue when this one is over.
The Cockabooster Crystal Ball says... Calhoun Academy by 7
The Richland County Rooster Farm will be rocking on Thursday night, hoping that some Cowboys from College Station get spurred early and often. The visiting gauchos have no intention of falling prey to the flock, and think they’ll be gigging some poultry instead. The Head Ball Coach has been clucking quite loudly this summer, which means he thinks the birds have some tough plumage.
The Cockabooster chooses South Carolina by 4
