College Football: Bold Predictions For Saturday's Toughest Picks
One of the challenges to writers of sports, politics, and history is being able to look at the situation from the correct perspective.
The ability to firmly state a position of neutrality early on allows readers to understand the article is not a case of propaganda or bias.
There will be no slurping phrases designed to do nothing but rally the masses to an seemingly agreed upon philosophy or conclusion.
But we shall ask the reviewer to take into consideration this small item: Can you pick the teams better than stated in this article?
If so, please help yourself and let us all know why you see the games in a contradictory manner from the writer.
Let's move along to Saturday's Toughest Games to Pick.
