This year we’ve launched the first-ever Chi Psi College Pick’em blog series!
Each Tuesday afternoon, we’ll post on Facebook which three games we’re watching that weekend, and on Thursday we’ll announce here the picks from our three “experts” (Sam Bessey, Justin Froeber and Jon Moore) and one surprise guest. This week’s surprise guest is Executive Council member and Annual Fund Chairman Steve Rickmeier, EΔ ’69.
Check out this week’s games to watch and our picks below:
Arkansas vs. Rutgers
Facebook fan favorite to win: Arkansas
|Justin Froeber: The Scarlet Knights have been impressive in head coach Kyle Flood’s first two seasons and after a heartbreaking loss in the season opener to Fresno State have recovered nicely. While the Razorbacks come into the season undefeated, I think they have yet to be tested. Rutgers wins at home.|
|Sam Bessey: Bielema the Hutt will not have a good trip east. The Banks of the Old Raritan will look more like a depression in the sands of the desert planet Tatooine to him. The Scarlett Knights aka the Fighting Sarlacci beat Arkansas, who, by the way, have the fourth dumbest fan base in America.|
|Jon Moore: I know that Rutgers won on the road in Fayetteville last year, but that Arkansas team was WAY down in the dumps. Reinvigorated in 2013 with a new head coach, I’m calling for the Razorbacks to pull off the win in a close contest. Be sure to check out Rutgers WR Brandon Coleman in this game, who is 6’6″ 220lbs and one of the best WR prospects for the 2014 NFL draft.|
|Steve Rickmeier: Rutgers is no match for a team that faces SEC powerhouses each week. Arkansas is my pick to win this one.|
Cincinnati vs. Miami (OH)
Facebook fan favorite to win: Cincinnati
#5 Stanford vs. #23 Arizona State
Facebook fan favorite: Stanford
