I graduated high school from Cramerton Christian Academy. I joined the Naval Nuclear Power Program and graduated in January of 2003. I've had lots of fun, and lived in many different places over the years. I love Alabama Football, and college football in general. I love staying outside throwing footballs, frisbees, etc. and generally spending quality time with my wife whenever possible. I love the fact that college football is a team sport and cannot be turned into a "one-man show," like other sports can be. Any single player can cause a team to fall, but it takes all 22+ playing at 100% to consistently win week in and week out to become champions. (What if every person in the world lived life that same way?)

Jonathan, haven't been on this site for awhile, but I love your articles. Thanks for writing them. I'm over 70 yrs. old, and a life time Alabama fan.
Add my name to those who are disappointed that your weekly picks aren't (yet) available; stuff happens, I know; I recommended to the feedback area that expecting you to come up with SCORES besides just simple picks might be asking too much...what with deadlines & the amount of 'lead time' available. forget the gripers, Jonathan; most of 'em pick out a game or 2 where your selection didn't quite work out & harp on that - the other 50 (or so) contests somehow manage to escape their short attention span. keep up the good work - see ya next week, hopefully. THX !!!
Hey man..just curious..because I was looking forward to your predictions for every game..but since you wrote something different this week which games do you think will be high scoring?
Where are your picks for every game? You always have that shit up by now. Was it that beatdown from all those incorrect predictions last week that you gave up?? You struggled in every top play of the week. Money was made going against you. I need your picks so I can make some more. Please get to typing and lose away for me.
Dude, I love your weekly predictions. I'm waiting for the latest predictions! HURRY!!! lol
Dude, please.... Oregon game was played in a downpour which limited passing completely... Cal's QB was replaced due to ball slipping, and Mariota threw for 117 yards only. You can't even begin to compare the CAL-OSU game vs the CAL-Oregon game due to the fact that Cal relies exclusively on passing. Get the facts straight.
we split once again, sir - only this time it was 7 for U, and 7 for me. Wanna bet some taco's this week ?
we picked 20 games differently last weekend, and split 10/10 - "Game's on" for this weekend; anxious to see your picks.
GUARANTEED: someone's gonna whine about my multiple comments - Please feel free to remind "who(m)ever" that B/R is a forum...a conversation, & so on. I try to include helpful information above & beyond the usual "my team's great & your team sucks" nonsense. Hope you enjoy my "participation", sir - THX for the opportunity !
Despite what Mister Griffin hints at, you had a good week pickin' games; beat me by ONE. safe picks like those our Mister Griffin would seemingly attempt are not interesting at all, & I'm curious if he's as "knowledgeable" about all 125 (or...126 ?) FBS teams - keep up the good work, & don't worry about others' criticismms - unless (of course) they're preceded by a taco ...hee hee. Man - you're definitely keepin' busy - between 60+ picks & all those rankings - my kind of B/R columnist, sir !
