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:

(rankings reflect BCS standings)

#20 Georgia Tech at #19 North Carolina

#11 Ohio State at #24 Northwestern

#14 Georgia at Kentucky (6-3)

#1 Alabama at #16 LSU

#21 California at #7 USC

Notre Dame (5-3) at Boston College (5-3)

Lousiville (5-3) at Pittsburgh (6-2)

Kansas (6-3) at Nebraska (5-4)

Stanford (5-4) at Oregon (6-3)

Virginia (5-4) at Wake Forest (5-3)

Cincinnati (6-2) at #25 West Virginia

#9 Oklahoma St. at #2 Texas Tech


My Picks: 7-5

  I'm going to go with The Heels because I like their aggressive, athletic, fast D against this run attack. Tech is going to need to throw to win

Northwestern is more explosive on offense, but Ohio State has the better defense, so the safe bet is Ohio State

well they both got stomped on by Florida but Kentucky played Bama closer. . .everybody picked Georgia so to be safe I should too right? yeah, but don't be shocked if this is a close one

no wait honestly, I want bama to lose, they've slowed down as of late but Saban can get them pumped, and I think he will for this one. . .ah, screw it I was going to go with bama but I'm goin LSU. already got me goin with Ohio state when I don't want to. when they lose I want to have called it. . .because they will lose

since that Oregon St. game the D has only allowed 0 or 10 points to their opponents. . .and that won't be enough

BC is on a slide. they both lost to UNC but UNC dominated BC whereas the ND-UNC game was a close one.

both played Syracuse, and both games were surprisingly close, Pitt won by 10 and Louisville lost by 7...so there ya go

. . .point is, I like Nebraska better, they have a better defense it appears



They played better against Maryland and Miami, although they got dominated by Duke. . . wake got dominated by Maryland more recently

I was leaning toward WV and then I saw that Uconn handled Cinci, and got handled by the mountaineers so. . .

Alright I said Tech would lose once they got some national recognition, now they're #2 and everybody is talking about them. . .down they go

Bib's College Pick 'em: Round 5

#20 Georgia Tech at #19 North Carolina-- GT won last week, so it's their turn to lose.

#11 Ohio State at #24 Northwestern-- OSU dominates their conference.

#14 Georgia at Kentucky (6-3)-- Georgia...are you kidding me?  Kentucky is garbage

#1 Alabama at #16 LSU-- LSU sucks

#21 California at #7 USC-- LOL...I love California, but no way they are winning against PC and his crew

Notre Dame (5-3) at Boston College (5-3)-- ND lost last week, so it's their turn to win

Lousiville (5-3) at Pittsburgh (6-2)-- PITT...Louisville just lost to Syracuse?  Syracuse WITHOUT Donovan McNabb?  That's horrible

Kansas (6-3) at Nebraska (5-4)-- Why is this game in here...Kansas

Stanford (5-4) at Oregon (6-3)-- Oregon's got a much better run game and D, + better unis...oh, and by the way, Stanford sucks, in case you didn't know already, why is this game here?

Virginia (5-4) at Wake Forest (5-3)-- These two teams make my picks wrong every week, I hate them, I'll say Wake just so that UVA will win and make USC's early season domination of UVA look a lot better

Cincinnati (6-2) at #25 West Virginia-- LOL WVU

#9 Oklahoma St. at #2 Texas Tech-- Tech

Where is the TCU-Utah game?  Plenty of people picked early...just for fun I'll go with TCU

Bib's College Pick 'em: Round 5

Wow, tech/UNC is a tough one....both squads with close losses to the same opponents.  The difference in this one will be the big loss of starting left tackle Andrew Garner for Tech, UNC wins a close one at home...I think

The Ohio State keeps a game behind Joe Pa with a tough win against the Wildcats

Knowshon goes off and torches Rich Brooks, getting the kitties ready for a 3 game skid to finish the year

Saban pounds his former team, bringing some serious heat on the Tigers' QB by committee

Sanchez comes back with a good game against their beat up rivals

I hate Notre Dame.  Seriously.  I'm picking BC out of principal.

After losing to one of the worst BCS conference teams in the nation the Cardinals have their best week of practice since Brohm was around, and blast Pitt.

Kansas gets caught looking ahead to the Longhorns and gets picked off by a fired up home crowd

Really? Is ANYONE going to pick Stanford here...I mean even good teams struggle at Autzen.

Please, oh please let me pick correctly with Wake for once....call it in the air...heads...going with Wake.

The mighty Bearcats of Cinci head to Morgantown and take over the conference lead

Joe Pa will have to wait one more week for the Red Raiders to lose.  They top the Cowboys in a shootout, then get waffle stomped by the Sooners next week.
