Alright so here's how this is going to go.

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.

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

as for the bowl pick 'em just submit your bowl picks before the game starts and you're good.

Good Luck!

My Basketball Picks: 9-3

I'm taking the Gaels in today's game, they've both been tested but St. Mary's has fared better in those tests, defeating the ducks and losing by just 2 to the commodores. Pacific was meanwhile handled by Cal. They've also both played San Jose State, St. Marys won, Pacific lost, neither game was a blowout though so this should be a 10 point or lower St. Mary's win

15, 10. Tomato, Tomoto lol

Im not picking against my heels right now, Roy will find a way

He didnt

  Duke has been sick this year. I'm actually afraid of them. I guess they start hot every year but this year I think they may be a real contender

That wasnt even close

When is the Butler coach going to get a big-time job? the man gets it done. This is a solid well-rounded team. They wont lose at home

controversial finish, I agree with the ruling though

I think I'm going to take the Aztecs. this was a tough team last year and they should have gotten tougher. Meanwhile State is dealing with the loss of Harden and should have trouble in what should be a tough game.

3 point loss, almost called another one

somebody said something about not being a good coach just because your daddy was and used Knight as an example . . . looks like he's getting it done to me . . .

ah, I wanted to take wichita . . .

Sorry Bama, I havent seen K state play yet this year but I think they can come down and get it done. two athletic teams, should get physical, fouls may become a factor

Wildcats dont disappoint

I was at the game wednesday when richmond gave my boys a hard time in the first half . . . they're capable of the upset

and they got it, funny thing. They led my gamecocks 32-24 at the half in the game we won, and they trailed 24-32 and then came back to win in this one

I know nothing about either of these teams and did not do research for these picks to see what would happen. Im taking northwestern simply for the fact that they're at home

Northwestern got the W, alright

Washington is guard heavy but should be much deeper than portland and therefore get it done

Wow, Portland didnt get off the bus lol

I'm not picking against my boy Dino Gaudio. go Wake

Wake got em, NC state hasnt done much in a while

ACC basketball? gotta have a few upsets . . . however minor they may be

and there it is, OT game right?

My Bowl Picks: 1 (3 games played)


after doing the research UCF is capable of pulling this off . . . I just dont see it happening

Same with UCF, Wyoming is capable, Fresno is better. but at the same time Wyoming is probably more pumped about this . . . regardless Im not picking against the obviously better team

Southern Miss has a solid offense, I know little to nothing about their opponent
