Alright here's how this is going to go. I'll come up with 12 games of interest every week for you all to choose from. You'll pick the winners and post them here or on the thread, whether you post them here or not, I will add them to the blog to make them easy to keep up with. I try to pick games between teams in the top 25, or in the other's recieving votes but then I move to teams with winning records then .500 records, and all teams are FBS.
Anybody is welcome to join in at any time, dont worry about missing a week if you decide to join late.

My Picks : 4-8Alright neither team has really played anybody. Yes USF beat Florida St. but what exactly is Florida St. right now? Not good if you ask me. Cinci's best win is against Oregon St. Another confusing team. It took 5 interceptions from Paulus for USF to beat them by 14 so I think I'll take my chances with Pike although a USF win wouldnt shock me with their defense.
They lost Pike and kept right on rolling
Rutgers got raped and pillaged by cinci, but that was week one so throw it out. Their best win is against Maryland. Pitt's loss was to NC State on the road by one TD, and this game here is on the road at Rutgers. Like the first game in the pick em, Rutgers got 5 turnovers in that Maryland game. Pitt takes better care of the ball and is a better team than Maryland. they win.
That little freshman running back is a stud. Thank you lewis for the W
Alright this one could be huge. Texas has not looked like we expected them to look but in one game (UTEP) that is why alabama jumped them in the polls, even this messed up politcal system we have recognizes their weaknesses. Trailing to the likes of Wyoming and Colorado. Now they went on to rout those teams but that was more on the intimidation factor after they came back into those games. Oklahoma isnt scared. you know what. To hell with it, I was going to be safe and go with Texas but I think I'm taking the Sooners. The D can force some turnovers and Bradford will avoid turning it over.
Damn bradford and his inability to fall like an athelete! OU wins if he stays healthy
Neither team really impresses me on paper, yes Iowa beat Penn St. but they just seem to have thier number for some reason. Close games against the likes of Northern Iowa, Arkansas State and Michigan. Wisconsin against michigan state and minnesotta . .. why not, Upset!
Well they went up 10-0 but then Iowa took over
With Cal I question their manhood. They seem to get down and then just roll over and take their beating (see USC and Oregon games). Both teams come in with 2 straight losses looking to turn it around. Cal managed just a field goal in their last two contests and have had 2 weeks to think about it. I think they explode on UCLA and Jahvid Best saves my college fantasy team :X
Well Cal won and Best saved my fantasy team
Texas Tech on the road against good teams 0-2. Also the only two games where they didnt break 30.
Well they broke 30 . . . and they won
These two teams are pretty evenly matched. Both were blown out in their last games. BC understandably by Vtech, NC state not so much so by Duke . . . naturally this tells you to go with BC but the ACC makes no sense so Wolfpack it is.
Holy doo doo. BC put up 52, are you kidding me . . .
The Georgia Tech D offers little resistance out there. VT and no hesitation with this on my part.
Awesome . . . ACC continues to F with me
The A&M offense is just going to be too much for this Kansas state team that allowed 66 (no not the route) to Texas Tech last week.
Allow 66 one week . . . score 62 the next, who the hell saw that coming
Stanford let me down last week but the good teams wont do that twice. They have been fairly consistent this year as opposed to other teams. If Arizona lives up to what they've been this year it should be a close game but Stanford pulls it out in the end.
Well it was close . . . only problem is Arizona scored 14 unanswered in the 4th
Alright Missouri has only played one team worth anything and that was Nebraska last week in their only loss. They let the likes of Bowling Green and Nevada hang with them. Missouri has an offense and OK state may have showed some weakness last week against A&M but I think they right the ship here and take care of business against Mizzou. Yaaaay!!! I picked a home team! lol
Wow, thought for sure I had picked Mizzou. alright this game isnt over yet . . .and it just ended. Thank you
I fell into the trap of thinking Arizona State was good because they hung with Georgia . . . bad thinking. They beat Washington state in what looked like an actual game. Not good. Washington it is.
That had to be the worst defensive play in the history of football on that game winning catch . . .
