I'll come up with 12 games every week. I'll have them up on Monday or Tuesday of each week. I'll only try to use teams from Major conferences or small conference teams that have a shot at being in the NCAA tourney, and I'll only choose games that are to be played on Friday - Sunday.
You'll pick the winners and post them here or on the GB10 thread, PM them to me, just get them to me. Whether you post them here or not, I will add them to the blog to make them easy to keep up with.
My thinking is that keeping up with the regular season will enhance your brackets come March.

My Basketball Picks: 4-8
both have recently had close games against bad teams, but the Spartans are 1-2 against major conference opponentswell, it was a close one
I hate Duke as much as the next man but Xavier has a lot of close games....K closes close games. . . didn't see that blowout coming but a correct prediction none the less
not 100% sure of the status of Devendorf but Memphis has trouble with teams that won't let them run as much as they like to, you know, teams that play some defense...I think the Cuse get 'em The D definitely got to them
New Mexico recently destroyed Ole Miss but I think the son of THE Bob Knight will have his team playing some defense. . .you know what, I take that back, they're coming off of losses to Lamar and UTEP. . . another close one
best opponent between these two was Virginia...who the Golden Gophers beat 66-56...I'll go with Louisville since they've blown out most of their horrible opponents...Minnesota has blown most out but not as decisively... I wanted to go with Tubby's boys so bad!
should be a good game but UNLV has lost to both of their big conference opponents, although the Cinci loss was by 2, they were handled by Cal damn you Arizona!!!
this could be a good one too, but Drake has just one blowout as of right now, and although they beat Iowa St, it was close, whereas Iowa owned Iowa St. Drake destroyed Iowa . . .ouch
Gonzaga is killing themselves with their schedule but they get a break before this game to fine-tune...I say they get the Huskies in this one I'm starting to notice a trend . . .
both lost to Oklahoma, Davidson by 4 and Purdue by 5. the Boilers have more playmakers, and I think they have enough athletes to chase Curry around and make him work on the defensive end as well to wear him out. . .ONE MAN CANNOT DO IT ALL FOR AN ENTIRE SEASON..I REFUSE TO BELIEVE IT!!! wow, I got one
this will be LSU's first real game this season and it's their first road game. They've taken care of all of their opponents. they may come out flat here and if they do A&M's crowd will get behind them and carry them to victory wow 2 in a row!!!
I think BYU can take AZ state, their domination of their opponents has been consistent and AZ state has been proven that they can be challenged by a solid mid-major program that last shot should have counted . . .
wow the two programs I hate most in the picks this week (Duke and Clemson.[ see favorite teams]) I look at Clemson's schedule and wonder how they're #1 in the RPI rankings. . .I think the Canes take them and all of a sudden I'm not looking forward to my gamecocks game against clemson...still going to go though

My Bowl Picks:
TCU's defense is ridiculous, they allowed more than 14 once!!! and that was the 35 they held Oklahoma to...the lowest total Oklahoma put out...by the same token Boise isn't bad there either. they allowed more than 16 twice...to Oregon and Nevada...Nevada confuses me here. I'm taking the Horned Frogs
I'm taking Hawaii. Why not? they can score and thier defense can catch the ball when the opposing QB throws it directly to them. . .Notre Dame struggles with that
