Alright so here's how this works.

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.

Anybody can jump in at any time, I put the player with the highest weekly average amongst the winners for those who aren't here for every week.

My thinking is that keeping up with the regular season will enhance your brackets come March.

and this is the final week that the bowl pick 'em standings and what not will be on here, going to be all b-ball in a minute, yaaay, lol

Good Luck!

LSU (12-1) at Alabama (10-3) Alabama


My Basketball Picks:  10-2

Kansas has been up and down against the big opponents this year. they beat Tennessee in their last game against a big-time opponent so they'll lose this one

I don't see any impressive wins on Nova's resume... I can't pick them, neither of their losses (Texas and Marquette) was a bad loss but I think Louisville will get them

. . .I don't know, they're home and they had an 8 point game with Pitt, good enough for me

toughest one for me so far. . .I'm going to take Marquette in a close one

Washington is coming off of a huge win against Washington St. I say they have a letdown...ahh..they play Stanford tomorrow, I may change this one...alright the Stanford game has been played, Washington won, but I think Cal completes the Washington sweep

lol, gonna go with a PTI quote here..."everybody's slurping" BC because of the win over UNC, they have the potential to have a great game doesn't mean they will every game, lol, hence the loss to Harvard and yes I was picking Miami before the Harvard loss

I'd like them both to finish behind my Gamecocks to prove a point, but I really don't see how Vandy was picked ahead of us, lol that is hilarious to me, we're about to get deeper this weekend too....oh, I'm off topic, yeah I just want Vandy to stink it up,  a loss to Ill. Chicago is worse than one to VMI

I like Dino Gaudio... lol not sure I mentioned this but he's the only coach that recruited me (back when he was at Loyola (MD))...but I like my Heels more, get it done Heels!!!

Lil romeo will not see the court, unless he's coming in when the Trojans concede victory

Penn St. had a great recruiting class a year ago, but these guys are young, they've had a lot of close games, just beat Purdue, I don't think they'll win this one. They're a year away if these kids stay

when i first picked this game I thought I was going to go with Wisconsin, Purdue is coming off of two tough losses, they'll be extra-motivated to get this one, they need it or they're going to be in some trouble in the Big 10

what's up with all the LSU love? lol I'm taking Bama, one common opponent, Bama dominated LSU barely hung on...not a good reason to pick a team but reason enough for me to not feel stupid taking a risk in picking the team nobody else did
