Here are three more stories that all seem like the could of happened....we might not ever know how Clausen got that black eye
Yea, you read that right. Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen was punched in the face this weekend at a bar, by a fan.
So the story goes, Clausen and family were out to eat after the Irish lost to UConn. The bar was called CJ's, and at this bar was a man who didn't really like Mr. Clausen. So he did the logical thing and punched the QB in the face. The punch is being called a sucker punch and Clausen has a swollen face.
This guy was also apparently yelling at Clausens GF or just some girl he was with, but were gonna say GF, classy guy.
Things are not looking good for Notre Dame right now...Weis is about to get fired...and their QB has a black eye...

They should of run a play here, or kick a FG, but definitely not spike the ball..

Before we take a look at every top 25 match up let's highlight a few...
Utah vs TCU
Cincinnati vs West Virginia
Houston vs UCF
Georgia Tech vs Duke
Iowa vs Ohio State
Miami vs UNC
Stanford vs USC
Pitt vs Notre Dame
Oregon vs Arizona State
Alright now let's dive deep into the picks...JUMP
South Florida -1 OVER Rutgers...Early Thursday game and it should be a good one, both of these teams are playing decent football but I give the edge to South Florida...29-21
Cincinnati -9 OVER WVU...West Virginia is a dangerous team looking for the upset, and Cincinnati needs to stay perfect. Should be a good battle throughout as WVU is a pretty tough team...Cincinnati stays perfect 34-20
Clemson -8 OVER NC State...Clemson has CJ Spiller(ridiculous speed), and that will be enough in this one...Tigers 23-10
Indiana +24 OVER Penn State...Penn State wishes they were being talked about right now, but instead it's Iowa and Ohio State...JoPA 32-16
Houston -4.5 OVER UCF...Tricky spread, I think Vegas knows something here...but we are going to bet it hard anyway...Houston rolls 41-28
Georgia Tech -12 OVER Duke...Georgia Tech stayed out of trouble last week and I think they win big this weekend against an average Duke team(NSFW language)...
Michigan +8.5 OVER Wisconsin...Hoping Michigan gets a win here to prove what they are capable of...the best is yet to come out of Ann Arbor...Michigan 23-20
Baylor +23.5 OVER Texas...Texas can't lose, period. They also need to blow teams like Baylor out. That being said this spread is too big, Texas 40-22...remember this guy
Maryland +17.5 OVER Virginia Tech...Tech continues to be unimpressive, I think this one stays close for a half, then VT realizes who they are playing...29-15...remember this guy
BYU -26.5 OVER NMU...At this point I almost feel bad for NMU...almost...remember this "guy"...BYU wins easy 48-12
Iowa +17 OVER Ohio State...this line is crazy, even though everyone knew that Iowa was going to lose eventually, that does not mean they are horrible...Ohio State 21-10...remember this guy...
Florida -16 OVER South Carolina...Time for Florida to start blowing people out and get hot here late. South Carolina looked bad last weekend...Florida 44-15...remember how both of these guys are the same but different sports...
Miami -3.5 OVER UNC...Two good teams but Miami is clearly the better of the two, and they did this(PLEASE LISTEN NSFW)...epic...
Stanford +10.5 OVER USC...I am done with USC still being ranked high, and stinking...unless they win by 25...TREEEEEEEEE
Idaho +31 OVER Boise State...This is TCU's weekend, I will give Boise State this to go and play with while we watch the real underdog play...
Alabama -12.5 OVER Mississippi State...MARK INGRAM FOR HEISMAN 2009...Bama rolls 29-8
Arizona +2 OVER Cal...Because Jahvid Best is out...and
LSU -24 OVER Louisiana Tech...LSU is really good, they have only have two loses, and to the best two teams in the country...remember him...
TCU -19.5 OVER Utah...LET'S GET TO A BCS BOWL GAME BANDWAGON EXPRESS!!!(Game of the Week)
Pitt -7 OVER Notre Dame...Dion Lewis is nasty, in a good way...Clausen still has moves to make for the Heisman race...Pitt 26-17
Texas Tech +4 OVER Oklahoma State...I'm taking Tech 81-75...SHOOTOUT
Oregon -17.5 OVER Arizona State...not sure what happened to Oregon last week, but at least they get this guy back...
That's all folks, podcast to come...
Really excited about this weekends football...SPEECH!!!
So apparently last night the three men and a handgun(this is now a serious crime) went out to a gas station and tried to rob some people. The victims had no money so the footballers fled.
In the getaway car cops found a pellet gun, and some weed.
The charge against the men is attempted armed robbery.
I have no idea why gifted division one athletes get in this kind of trouble. How can you be so broke that you need to rob someone, schools throw money at these kids. Stupid stupid stupid...

Collaros has played very well this season so there is no need for panic here. But WVU has a solid squad and this match up certainly has upset potential.
Monday, November 9, 2009
In other news Dez Bryant was suspended an entire year for not telling the truth about something that was legal. Hmmmmmmmmmmm...................hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...interesting....hmmm...
California RB Jahvid Best who suffered a scary (scroll down you've got to see it) concussion on Saturday will be released from the hospital soon. Best was taken off the field in a stretcher, and after watching the fall, things did not look good.
Best will likely miss the Golden Bears next game vs Arizona, as this is the second concussion in as many weeks for Cal's superstar RB.

We wish him the best...really scary...
Alabama beat LSU to solidify them in the SEC championship.
Oregon fell to Stanford despite a late rally.
Good luck tonight, be safe...
Not good for Iowa as their BCS national championship chances are now completely shot.
11 catches for 273 yards and a touchdown. Those are the numbers Jordan Shipley put up today vs UCF. This kid is ridiculous, crazy good. 273 yards is unreal...

Notre Dame vs Navy
Penn State vs Ohio State
LSU vs Alabama
Oregon vs Stanford
Oregon State vs California
Tulsa vs Houston
Oklahoma vs Nebraska
USC vs Arizona State
Alright go ahead and hit the JUMP and 2ndnShort will take you through all of the picks for this weeks games...
East Carolina +12.5 OVER Virginia Tech...VT has been well under expectations this year and ECU will look to knock them off again...shouts
Louisiana Tech +21.5 OVER Boise State...Betting against Boise State for life...seriously...I just wonder how far they would drop if they lost...
Syracuse +21.5 OVER Pittsburgh...GREG PAULUS!!!
Virginia +13.5 OVER Miami...I can't figure Miami out, at all. They might be one or two years away from a full return to form...good tough win last week though, Virginia keeps this one close and loses 30-20.
Indiana +10.5 OVER Wisconsin...cool pants man
Texas -36.5 OVER UCF...UCF will miss Kevin Smith in this one...a lot
Northwestern +16.5 Iowa...Still thinking Iowa loses a game this year...but not this one Iowa wins 19-10
BYU -13 OVER Wyoming...betting with BYU for an unknown reason
Notre Dame -11 OVER Navy...with Michael Floyd coming back Jimmy Clausen will continue his Heisman quest...Notre Dame wins 29-15
Penn State -3.5 OVER Ohio State...This game should be close all the way, taking JoPa in this one, 16-12
Georgia Tech -16 OVER Wake Forest...Sticking with Georgia Tech because they have looked great as of late, 40-18. GT is definitely one of the best one loss teams.
LSU +7.5 OVER Alabama...hold on hold on hold on....I am not saying Alabama is going to lose, not at all. I think that they win 28-22. But, this could be the game of the week/year, neither of these teams can afford to lose. LSU is the top one loss team, and Alabama has a lot of people breathing down their neck for the #2 spot. Should be a good one...SPEECH!!!(I think I will post this vid every time we here at 2ndnShort feel fit, but mainly for huge games.
Oklahoma State -7.5 OVER Iowa State...SHOOTOUT!!!
Oregon -6.5 OVER Stanford...This should be a great game, Stanford is hungry for the upset. Oregon is good, really good, they need to win this game. QUACK!!!
Arizona -32.5 OVER Washington State...Washington State is pretty bad, like 42-4 bad...
TCU -24.5 OVER San Diego State...TCU WARWAGON FULL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Utah -27 OVER New Mexico State...NMSU is so bad...really ugly...sorry
Oregon State +7.5 OVER California...Jahvid Best and Jaquizz Rodgers...should be exciting
Florida -35 OVER Vanderbilt...Not even close, Tebow needs another big game to stay in the Heisman race...he get's it vs Vandy
Tulsa -1.5 OVER Houston...Tulsa wins, 58-50...yea
Cincinnati -16.5 OVER UConn...Can the Bearcats continue to roll? I think so...34-12
Oklahoma -5 OVER Nebraska...Yawn...MUSTACHE!!!
USC -10 OVER Arizona State...Worst loss in the Pete Carroll era last week, they have to bounce back
Alright, enjoy the football should be a great week. Check back here for updates Friday and Saturday
And enjoy this...Friday is here be happy, and take a girl to the movies...
This is the worst music video ever...or best...hilarious
Spikes has decided to take himself out of the game so that he is not a distraction, aka Vanderbilt stinks and Spikes will not be needed.
Picks post and podcast tonight...get your betting shoes ready.
But for now...
Tuesday, November 3, 2009
Cincinnati QB Tony Pike is healing well and is now in a splint, not good news for anyone but the Bearcats because he is goooooood.
Notre Dame WR Michael Floyd is set to come back this week vs Navy. Jimmy Clausen is still in Heisman contention and this should do nothing but help as Floyd is one of the best wide outs in the nation.
and have a nice humpday...
don't lead with your head kids...bad idea...
Monday, November 2, 2009
Texas beat up on Oklahoma State Saturday to move into the #2 spot ahead of Alabama. This is great for Texas because of Florida and Alabama both win out they will collide in the SEC championship, leaving the winner to play Texas.
These three are followed by Iowa, Cincinnati, and TCU. TCU is looking to stir things up as they battle with Boise State as the underdog of the year.
Iowa is a team nobody expected to be here...they won by 18 points this weekend despite Stanzi throwing 5 picks.
Cinncy is still hot, and their passing attack is ridiculous.
Oregon moved up to 8th after smacking USC...Trojans dropped to 12th.
Notre Dame is #22.
The 2ndnShort best ten teams in the country are..
