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.

Good Luck!

My Picks: 8-4

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. Cool 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. Wink 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. Undecided 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 lolSmile 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. Smile 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. Undecided 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 . . . Smile 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 Money mouth (gonna put my money where my mouth is) Smile 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 . . . Undecided 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 Surprised 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 . . . Wink 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 . . . Smile I have nothing to say about this game. A win though. On a side note. WTF Va tech???

And officially this is the least confident I've felt on any pick em I've ever done...thanks Bib.
lol. glad I could do that to you


and gamecockrock, your time was not wasted. good stuff lol

I also smell a 2 score victory for our gamecocks. I almost went 35-21 but we'll def. have at least one field goal (and I may or may not have Spencer Lanning on my fantasy team . . .)

Bib's College Football Pick 'em 3: Week 2

#22 Georiga at #24 South Carolina - This game is shaping up nicely for South Carolina, when they was favorites already at the start of things.  Fortunes have went South Carolinas way, with us getting Culliver back in time for the game and UGA losing out on Green.  Even with these recent happenings, I see this game coming down to if South Carolina can stop the UGA ground game to put pressure on Murray to perform, and I think they do it as they looked impressive against the run in the first week.  South Carolina cruises to a 31-21 victory.

#15 Georgia Tech at Kansas - Kansas looked helpless against a bad FCS team in North Dakota State.  I dont see how they stand a fighting chance of keeping this one interesting much less winning it.  The Football gods would have to be smiling upon Kansas and Griting their teeth against GT for this upset to happen.  GT takes this one by 24+.

#17 Florida State at #10 Oklahoma - An interesting early matchup no doubt, definitely a must watch.  OU looked very shaky against a bad Utah State team, while FSU cruised past an equally bad Samford.  Im callin this one "See Three" because the QB you see with three TD's will win this game.  And I think that QB will be Christian Ponder.

#25 Stanford at UCLA - Stanford got off to a rather slow start last week against a Sacramento State, and I think that will be the key to this game.  If UCLA can get an early lead on the Cardinal, the Bruins win this one... but unfortunately I dont see that happening here.  The Cardinal win thanks to a stanford rushing attack (and im not saying that because I have or dont have a Cardinal RB on my fantasy team).

Michigan at Notre Dame - This is the game that everyone looks to for a special reason... its the one game that pits two of the richest tradition programs against each other annually... sadly, they dont look like those rich in tradition programs for the last half a decade or so.  Im going to go against my better judgment here and just give this one to the home team.  ND wins it and I have no reason why or how, *fingers crossed*.

#12 Miami at #2 Ohio State - THE BIG ONE!!!... not; im saying it right now, neither of these teams will be in the BCS NC game.  But it should be entertaining, if for no other reason its the first meeting since that memorable 2003 NC game.  Im getting crazy here, but I have never picked OSU to win a game, and I aint about to start now.  Miami puts the "the" in The Ohio State just got whooped. (bias absolutely intended)

#7 Oregon at Tennessee - I truly hate, HATE to have to pick against an SEC team, especially when im picking a Pac-10 or Big11 team over that SEC team.  But the fact is Oregon put up 72 points on a bad New Mexico team while Tennessee put 50 on a worse UT-Martin team... interestingly this one will be low scoring, as they both shutout their creampuffs. (FYI, upset alert!!!)

#18 Penn State at #1 Alabama - Thankfully after picking a Pac-10 team over a fellow SEC member, I get to come right back and pick a SEC member over a Big11 member.  Penn State will be picked in 11 weeks this season by me, but this week is not included.  Bama rolls tide roll.

Idaho at #6 Nebraska - Well, time completely snuck up on me and tapped me on the shoulder, and its now 1:20 in the AM so im gonna make these last ones quick... its a good thing they have no relevancy.  Nebraska takes this one

Colorado at California - California picks up a victory and becomes the "welcoming" committee for CU to the Pac10.  Welcome Buffaloes, have fun.

BYU at Air Force - Im going to go with an upset here for two reasons... my friend will be going into the AF beginning of next year, and secondly its hard to deny that triple option offense. Oh and a third reason... AF is at home (what were you thinkin BYU!!)
 
NC State at Central Florida - NC State wins... thats all this game deserves!


Was a blast, hope someone gets some pleasure outta this write-up, cause I lost alot of sleep hours on it!

Bib's College Football Pick 'em 3: Week 2

The old ball coach and his visor get it done, as Georgia's route of ULL does not give them as much game experience as their scout team would have...that and don't look now, but Stephen Garcia is starting to look like a quarterback...
Hell I'd take the aforementioned Ragin Cajuns over Kansas at this point...or is this a basketball pickem? Go triple option!!!
I like how Jimbo Fisher's squad looked coming out of the blocks, with "big game Bob" coming out in grand fashion....FSU
Toss up.  I like Andrew Luck to pick apart UCLA, but this is in Pasadena...I think UCLA will rally the troops and UCLA recovers from a win they let slip away in The Little Apple last week.  Bruins in a nail biter.
Rich Rod wins in his weekly campaign to save his job
Who has Terrelle Pryor and the best dressed coach in the nation?  That's right.  Sweater vest all the way.
Unfortunately moronic NW sports fans will once again celebrate as the read option attack will smoke UT...never should have fired Fulmer.
I honestly think Joe Pa could (let me stress the could ) win this game at home, but not in Alabama Elephant territory.
Um, really?  The Corn Fed team.
Kevin Riley and the Bears will smack down the Buffs, and welcome them into conference to be mediocre as well.
Coach Bib, I want to pick with you here, but I swear Air Force lets me down every time.  I'll pick Orgazmo's college for this one. "I'm not a super hero, I'm a Latter Day Saint!"
Didn't see a play of either team.. Let's go with Jimmy V's squad.

And officially this is the least confident I've felt on any pick em I've ever done...thanks Bib.
