Alright here's how this is going to go. I'll come up with 12 games of interest every week for you all to choose from. You'll pick the winners and post them here or on the thread, whether you post them here or not, I will add them to the blog to make them easy to keep up with.

This week's games:

#23 Boston College at North Carolina

#3 Penn State at #10 Ohio State

Illinois at Wisconsin

#8 Texas Tech at #19 Kansas

Wake Forest at Miami

Cincinnati at UConn

#7 Oklahoma St at #1 Texas

#9 Georgia at #11 LSU

#14 South Florida at Louisville

Virginia at #21 Georgia Tech

Virginia Tech at #24 Florida State

Colorado at #16 Missouri



My Picks: 5-7

alright the first time around this got erased so my analysis isn't going to be so great

the Eagles have been consistent all year, common opponent is v tech...BC won, NC lost and NC had it's best playmaker in that game, they won't in this one go heels!

Nittany lions D has been great all year. one big win, and I mean beating a good team handily, is not enough to sell me on the buckeyes

well they handled Indiana...but they're still pissed about losing to the Golden Gophers, they're out for pelts and Badgers will have to do

I said that Tech would wait until they got national recognition to lose....a game on ESPN count as recognition? I'll say yes and give the win to Kansas. Rock Chalk!!!

Wake is headed the wrong way in a hurry, Miami hasn't really had a bad loss

common opponent, and most recent opponent is Rutgers for both squads, Uconn lost 12-10, Cinci won 13-10, Uconn hasn't recovered from losing their QB

my hatred for the college football postseason and the BCS period make me want to pick OK state, common opponent is Missouri. Texas allowed Missouri to score more points but they also put up more points, and the D has been pretty solid otherwise

common opponent is SC, both 7 point victories , but Georgia hasn't been what they were expected to be offensively this year, meanwhile LSU's offense is shaping up nicely as of late with the two QB system

a glance at the schedules made me want to choose the bulls but a guy with the s/n UL CARDS, not choosing the cards pushed me over the top

I'm still confused by Virginia so for that reason alone I'll go with G tech

FSU's offense just seems to be able to do more, Vtech has only been out of the 20's once

...alright NOW Chase Daniels is pissed, help me out Chase

Bib's College Pick 'em: Round 3

your protest is noted but you find me a good game between good teams in the Pac 10

yes, the USC game was initially picked, but like you said nobody would pick Arizona so I got rid of it

Illinois and Wisconsin were top teams at the beginning of the season, and are both around .500

3-4 UCLA vs. 4-2 Cal, like I said I almost did this one, but didn't think anybody would pick UCLA with the way they've played

5-2 Oregon vs 2-4 Arizona st... Arizona st. is more than a game below .500, I wouldn't pick that game for that reason alone

those are the only 3 games in the pac-10 this week, and I like the Pac-10 but I'm not going out of my way to make sure a conference is included

I've only got 1 SEC game!!!

Bib's College Pick 'em: Round 3

Bib I hate East Coast homers!

12 games and no Pac10 games?

Put up the UCLA-Cal game or I'm not picking!

I can see why there's no USC, everyone will pick USC lol

But are you serious?  Wisconsin and Illinois, two teams that SUCK, and that game is there without any Pac10 games?

And 4 ACC games too?

I'm protesting by not picking.
