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!

My Basketball Picks: 7-5

Get your shyt together Roy!!!

both are coming off of losses but I like the Cuse

going to go with Wake here. Clemson is good enough to get the win but they haven't been dominant in their last 4 games

We need another big win, I'll call it although I don't like that the vols are coming off

Georgetown does not need to try to play Duke's game . . .they're too good at it. Notre Dame, a team with similar shooters, beat  Georgetown

I'm taking Arkansas, everybody loves Florida but I'm not impressed, Arkansas is on a two game slide, I think they, like the Heels, get off of that slide

UCLA has two losses, to Texas by 4 and to Michigan by 3, both a long time ago, but AZ state dominated Oregon and Oregon St. much more impressively recently

Oklahoma St. seems like the better team . . . I want to pick Baylor though. Baylor wins I'm not going to be happy...I may change this to Baylor didn't get a chance to change it . . .

State is back to full strength so I don't see them losing this game they're on a roll as of late despite the close game against Penn St.

I'm going to take Louisville in this one, I think Petino can get his team up for this one. Pitt is undefeated but they haven't really been steamrolling everybody

the band is on the court! the band is on the court! . . . alright not really. Cal and Stanford have played the same 4 conference opponents, Cal is 4-0 in those games, Stanford is 1-3 . . .pretty obvious

got to take Wolverines, they're the better team and they're at home in a rivalry game
