Alright here's how this works. 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.

Anybody shocked that I'm picking my team? No? alright. Well I look at it like this. We've gone to the wire with them the past two years only to lose it at the end. We have a veteran quarterback to their inexperienced one and then AJ Green went and decided to sell his jersey. What an idiot. While we do now have an offense, i say the defense forces some turnovers which will be the difference in the game. Put a hat on that smiley and it was me at the game lol. Marcus Lattimore is fun to watch. Feels good having a running game . . . Garcia scared me with the fumble but it didnt kill us. cupcake next week so I can relax a little.
Everybody is going to pick G tech more than likely but i put this game on here because there's no way Kansas is going to be that bad again. 3 points against who was it ND state? lol. idk. I like the bounceback potential here. GTech will probably dominate though. Did I get it wrong? yes. Did I say I liked the bounceback potential? yes. I put some games on here that a lot probably didnt think twice about. needed one to come out for me. this one did lol.
Utah State is one of those sleeper type teams and all but uh . . . i dont think anybody was impressed with what Oklahoma did last week. Florida State meanwhile rolled in the way a big boy is supposed to so I like their chances of going in and beating an Oklahoma team that lost a lot more than Sam Bradford last year. So I guess the Oklahoma from last week was a fluke? They kinda handled Florida State here . . .
I really didnt watch any of the UCLA- KState game last week and i should have. I think last year I watched at least 4 possesions of every game that wasnt on while I was at or watching the SC game. Im sure UCLA is at least halfway decent but I know Stanford is. Def. gonna watch this one and wish luck to my boy Luck lol Hmmm, blowout lol.
Seeing as how I took Connecticut against Michigan and Michigan handled them. meanwhile Notre Dame didnt exactly own Purdue (shocked at all the love for them thus far) I'm going to take Michigan. One of the better games on the slate this week. Well that paid off for me. I guess the Notre Dame love wasnt unwarranted though. close game.
Besided the SC-Georgia game of course, this game is the one im the most excited for. Both teams scored 45 last week (and probably could have scored more. Ohio State is home but I really dont care. Gonna call my first real upset of the year here. Boise gets promoted . . . Miami's defense is just a little nastier, I think that'll be the difference here. Guess I should have looked at the QB's and not the defenses. Jacorry Harris threw the game away. 4int's??? unacceptable. bad part is they only lost by 12 despite the picks . . . just something to think about.
I hate when I put upset special type games on here but dont know anything about either team. I didnt watch their games. I assumed Tennessee would suck this year but when you hang a 50 spot on someone and shut them out that's hard to ignore. So i put this game on here for it's upset potential but Im not jumping out on that branch with no clue what either team can do . . . So yeah. That's kinda what i expect/was hoping for.
True freshman QB versus #1 defending champs? lol sorry . . . the matchup is fun to look at with the two teams but Im not betting against saban here . . . maybe later down the road (gonna put my money where my mouth is) So yeah. bama took care of business.
Yes. I was hurting for games. the first couple of weeks are always the hardest to pick. need at least two weeks to know what a team is about. aaaaand of course there arent a ton of big boys looking to battle other big boys out there. so that combined with the fact that Im well aware of the proliferation of this Idaho offense are why this game got on here. You know what (didnt pick yet) Im taking Idaho. F it. lol Enderle going home. Im confused as to how Nebraska is #8 anyway. i dont think the Vandals can stop the huskers from running. but if Idaho can get on top, and scare the huskers, that'll throw the huskers off and thats when mistakes happen. I say this game is closer than most are expecting. may be an idaho loss but i expect at least a battle from them . . . Im not sure how the game went late. guess Idaho put some points on the board later in the game to save face for me a little. This one didnt pay off for me last time i pick an upset just to pick an upset. I kinda use the blog as an upset watch when there arent a lot of good games. next week looks better though.
I dont know if I'll ever pick colorado. I just dont know what to make of them... ever. How about this Pac-12 showdown though huh? lol Yeah, welcome to the Pac 10 colorado. lol
Air Force is one of my favorite underdogs as all of you know. BYU is down. Air Force's offense is not. They're home. I say they finally jump on the cougs . . . Told ya they'd jump on em . Hey, and BYU lost by more than Idaho so there lol.
this game was originally cut but i see i made the right decision in bringing it back. Looks like it's the most split game this week as far as the picks are going. Im taking the wolfpack though. UCF played South dakota in their warm up. probably not a beneficial matchup. should have talked to 24k about this one . . . I have nothing to say about this game. A win though. On a side note. WTF Va tech???
