Alright so here's how this is going to go.

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.

as for the bowl pick 'em just submit your bowl picks before the game starts and you're good.

Good Luck!

My Basketball Picks:  9-3

I can't pick against my team...we need this after the clemson lost...we didn't schedule anybody out of conference and the SEC is down haha, we needed this win
 
apparently Arizona doesn't play defense all of their games, just about, have been close each played UNLV, Cal handled them, Arizona was handled by them, yes Arizona beat Gonzaga, but Arizona is on a slide right now, so that's diminished somewhat nice two in a row

I'll take the Cardinal. Stanford is hard for me to read by just looking at the schedule but they are the home team and these two seem to match up well ok...so stanford got owned.....

I believe Chism is out for the Vols, and it's time for Kansas to get a big win Kansas got that big win

NC state lost to Marquette by 2 then only beat Loyola (MD) (the only school to recruit me for Basketball ) by 2.....so Florida it is, can't tell what NC state is going to do and Florida is home Florida took it in a close one

I'm taking the Hoyas, way more battle tested right now and they're the home team two misses so far....in two blowouts

I liked Ohio St. early but they're not playing as well recently...got handled by West Virginia and only beat Iowa by 3...not impressive enough for me Minnesotta got it done!!!

St. has 3 losses to teams that were in the tourney last year or are currently ranked....I'll take them over a team that has lost to Wofford and Stony Brook  another W!

...because they're north carolina nothing else to say....

I'm feeling Michigan in this one...they lost to Wisconsin they need to bounce back strong I'm rolling!

always in these games where I haven't really seen the teams I like to go on feel...I feel the Golden Eagles in this one blowout!

 
I want to pick Kentucky but I think Petino needs this more...and they're at home God I hate Kentucky, lol

My Bowl Picks:



this should be a great game, despite the lack of top 10 rankings for these BCS teams. I say West Virginia and North Carolina are similar in the scores of their games and their overall performance (31-30 head-to-head confirms this thought) VT and Cinci beat UNC and WV (respectively) by 3 points. VT is more likely to underperform so in a toss-up, I can't pick them

SEC D baby, they held Bama and Florida to 30 or less, I expect the same, Baylor held Tech to 35. I think Ole Miss has one of the better offenses in the SEC too.

why not, nobody else is taking them, and they have a great D and can make plays on offense, my pick of SC was a homer pick, I knew after Iowa scored first it was over, lol, but anyway, I think Kentucky gets it done

Utes baby!!! I called a Ute victory before this bowl matchup was ever made. Utah can score they just need to play their game and not try to do too much

Both lost to Pitt, both beat Temple in close ones, UConn seems to have a better defense and Buffalo a better offense. There's no way Turner Gill's boys let a one dimensional team beat them

Texas has too much offense to lose to this Buckeye team. . .they should have been in the championship and would have if they had the SEC title rule but whatever . . .

why not? this could be a shootout if so Tulsa wins, it gets defensive Ball state will get them

the streak of 60 point games ends for Oklahoma, Bradford gets whacked a couple times and Tebow beasts that D...I wanted Florida vs. Texas!!!
