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

My Picks: 6-6
Notre Dame is coming off of two bad losses. not losses to bad teams but losses to good teams that they didn't really compete with, the only way they get the Huskies is if the Huskies come out flat, but their tough opponents are spread out so I don't see that happening
Memphis hasn't played anybody with some national credibility in a while, Tennessee has and I think they come out more prepared and win this one fairly easily did I say that???
it seems to be a trend for top teams to lose two conference games close together this year, I think the Bruins continue the trend... the Huskies' only conference loss was a 3 point one to a good Cal team called it!
The Aggies have some good OOC wins, they just haven't put it together in conference yet...besides that 6 point game against the Sooners...I say they steal one here
Purple Eagles I almost went with Siena in this one looking at the recent wins and losses, but Niagra has had more impressive showing against similar competition. Siena has won a few close ones, too many. This one will be close but the Saints can't win 'em all... that sounds borderline blashpemous . . .
This was a really tough one to call for me... in the end I have to go with the Rams, for one they're home, but they also seem a little more consistent offensively
Wisconsin is too talented and too well coached to let this slide contiue. The last two were heartbreakers but I think the Badgers get this one at home
I'm so tired of Oklahoma playing to the level of their opponent and still winning, this Baylor team is too explosive to play around with, I say the luck of the Sooners runs out in this one
Since their two losses to Utah (by 31) and Alabama, the Tigers have been dominant...took down my gamecocks , but anyway, the Musketeers haven't played anybody recently, and they're on the road here, Tigers pull the upset...and if I can I might watch this one to see what this LSU team is all about
I'm going to go with BYU here, they're at home and they've lost two straight, the last one by 6 points
I might watch this one too... I like Johnny Flinn and the gang but Louisville is playing like the team they were supposed to be at the beginning of the season. Syracuse has come up short, waaay short against their top Big East opponents thus far, the trend won't stop here
both coming off of bad losses, Mich St. getting thier first Big 10 loss to Northwestern, Izzo's boys are back on track though, and like the Cards I think State is ready to restore themselves to where they were supposed to be at the start of the year watched some of this one... loved watching state run their offense
