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.

Good Luck!

My Picks :  8-4

Tough game for me to decide on with it being an away game for the Heels. They are coming off beating Miami and VTech in their last 3 though so I think they've gotten this whole consistency thing down now . . . At least I hope they do

Seemed like every time I looked up in the first quarter the Heels were scoring, two defensive TD's early put it away

I put games like this on here so I can pick upsets . . . Ive been pretty damn successfull with it lately actually but to business. I guess people have forgotten that Iowa was probably the luckiest team in the country all year and we were all just waiting for that luck to run out. It has . . .

well . . . Iowa scores 12 points. Minnesota decided not to score though so they kinda lost lol

  This should be a good game . . . the only games with mixed results they had were Nebraska and Texas A&M, all other games they had similar results but to a different degree, Oklahoma has held their opponents to less points but also scored less points, Oklahoma the better D, Tech the better O. Tech at home . . . 1-3 on the road with Jones starting. Losses at Miami, at Texas, at Nebraska. the win? Kansas

Wow, Tech blowout. I thought OU would show up but regardless. win #2

I kinda wanted to go with the Cyclones but I also dont want to have the trend of picking all the "upsets" it is another toss-up in my mind, although Mizzou actually did look good last week as opposed to the rest of the season for both teams (garbage)

mizzou came through, that's 3

A lot of close conference games for both teams. overall it looks like Ohio has the better D and NIU a slightly better O. NIU has won 4 straight since their 1 point loss to Toledo but besides the E. Michigan demolition none was that great a victory that I can say they're rolling. Should be a competitive match. Could go either way

Could have gone either way but glad it went my way, Ohio by 7 and Im 4-1 so far . . . (slide to come)

I cant tell if Ole Miss is good or not . . . they owned Tennessee last week while LSU was playing a cupcake, whatever. Go Rebs

Wow, not yet, great game, the refs tried to rob Ole miss a few times but in the end LSU tried to spike the ball with one second left lmao. 5-1

thats right Air Force. As you all know I dont get stuck on names . . . I also have nothing to lose. the fact of the matter is this, none of either team's conference wins is more impressive than the other. BYU 59-21 over UNLV, Air Force 45-17. BYU 38-28 over SDGST, Air Force 26-14. What did stand out was the respective TCU games. Air Force lost 17-20, BYU lost 7-38 . and BYU just came off of a 5 point win against New Mexico.

slide time! BYU took care of business in this one

as much as I wanted to joke about the Badgers looking forward to their trip to hawaii in a couple weeks I just cant do it. They've been inconsistent this year but Northwestern is a hard team for me to pick and sleep well at night . . .

damnit, damnit, damnit
I wanted to pick the wildcats baaaaaaad oh well

Do I really need to explain this pick? I love Gerhart, I love Luck, Stanford is a train coming down a hill, anybody or anything in it's way is getting destroyed . . . that includes bears. oh, and why not . . . "KEEP THAT DAMN BAND OFF THE FIELD!!!"

Cal showed a lot of heart. Id be pissed if I didnt have Vareen on my college fantasy team lol, title here I come!!!

  Ah another one of these games . . . one team better O, one team better D, neither team really "better" Now as I dont want to hear Paul4cats mouth I want to pick Georgia but I like Kentucky in this one. Nothing that Georgia has done screams "pick me" and Ive just had dreams about Paul telling me that Kentucky is better than SC and blah blah blah . . .

and Kentucky held on for me. nice

Ah the battle to see who gets to be every TCU fan's favorite team for a week so. Despite the fact that at the start of the season I wanted Colt McCoy to win the Heisman and play in the championship game I hate the BCS more. so, Im going to pick who i think is better equippped to handle Texas. Kansas State has been crappy at best down the stretch here. after losing to Oklahoma they beat Kansas by 7 (17-10) and then lose to Missouri . . . Nebraska meanwhile, beat Oklahoma and beat down Kansas. Go Huskers

Please Nebraska, Please!!! beat the Longhorns!!!

There will be other chances for Stanford to get to the rose bowl . . . really I'd be happy with either team going. Watched arizona for the first time last week and wasnt impressed obviously

alright Ducks in the bowl. A great story after the Blount punch kicked off their year . . .

Bib's College Pick 'em 2: Round 12

North Carolina (7-3) at Boston College (7-3) - BC loses to every semi-decent team out there, UNC is more than decent.

Minnesota (6-5) at  #13 Iowa - Minnesota sucks.  Why is this game here?

Oklahoma (6-4) at Texas Tech (6-4) - I got burned with Tech last week.

Iowa St. (6-5) at Missouri (6-4) - Gabbert is playing very well now, no chance for Iowa ST.

Northern Illinois (7-3) at  Ohio (7-3) - NIU played better against the BCS schools.

#8 LSU at Mississippi (7-3) - Mississippi is so overrated, they wont beat the Tigers.

Air Force (7-4) at #22 BYU - BYU at home should be enough to hold off Air Force, who plays close games but doesn't win.

#16 Wisconsin at Northwestern (7-4) - Wisky should beat a lucky NW team, unless they get lucky again, not likely.

#25 California at #17 Stanford - Stanford scoring over 100 points combined against USC and Oregon, who outscored Cal something like 69-6?  On paper this looks horrible.

Kentucky (6-4) at Georgia (6-4) - Kentucky loses too many SEC games for me to pick them safely, so Dawgs it is.

Kansas State (6-5) at Nebraska (7-3) Nebraska at home can beat an average at best KState team.

#11 Oregon at Arizona (6-3) - Oregon won't lose again until they play Oregon State.

Bib's College Pick 'em 2: Round 12

Curious as to why so many people seemed to have picked NIU. I guess it's all off the reputation of their football program.
