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: 9-3

Russell Wilson is balling right now. and I hate ACC games so if im worried about G tech they're probably going to lose. Cool Yeah, Russell Wilson is good . . .

Gonna have to take Tech. It appears they'v gotten their offense together. dont think BC's D is going to be able to stop them. Smile Didnt think BC had anything. I watched some of this game. ugly

Not sure I trust the Northwestern D against a team that scored 52 last week but I'll take them anyway. Wink Gonna assume this game was closer than some of you expected . . .

Kansas State's defense is (charles barkley voice) "Turrible" upset? I mean you know I've got to pick at least one right? lol Yell Damnit! TD with 24 seconds to take the lead??? Hurt me watching this one . . .

I want this to be a good game. Penn state only put up 24 on Kent state but they shut them out also. Penn state d will bail out the O even if they do allow some point. Sorry Bill Cosby, cant pick them (they win this though and they'll be ranked or close to it) Undecided Well, it was a good game. all i wanted . . .

I liked how close the Georgia-Arkansas game was. I also liked how Georgia was able to score on Arkansas. Made me feel really confident in my gamecock's chances against them. Im going to go safe here and take Bama but this game will go a long way in telling me about both of these teams . . . Undecided damn! so close to an upset. oh well I DID pick bama

It's cute you thought I was done after one upset. Get em Wyndham!!! No really though. the D gets it done here. Florida has not taken care of business in my eyes. Kentucky can score and they can stop Florida from scoring. Little hesitation with this pick Sealed guess Florida got their sht together . . .

yeah yeah nobody expected me to pick Auburn. Our starting D hasnt allowed a touchdown yet. Clemson's D has been allowing scores to cupcakes so I dont think Auburn's O can put more than 17 on us. That said we need Lattimore to travel. We control the ball we win. Yell We abandoned the run, we didnt adjust our D to defend a running QB, We should have gotten blown out. Get back to the ground game. and play man D. our zone was only working in the past because we were up in every game . . .

Oregon State didnt really impress me in the TCU game. Then they had the close game wth Louisville (yes I know Kentucky did too) Not sure what Boise is about either having seen what Va Tech has done lately but I did like what I saw from Boise. Smile Whatever. boise chugs along . . .

I think LSU is overrated but I always underestimate them. I hate this game. and i hate thinking about it. next game . . . Smile W

toughest choice of these last few. (dont remember the previous ones I did earlier. as in pre-SC) I reaaaaaally want to take Cal but after how horribly that D played last week on the road Im not sure I can . . . Smile I kinda thought thered be more scoring but a good game nonetheless az winning it at the end .  . .

Alright I liked the way AZ state played Wisconsin last week that's why this game is on here but Oregon's O and D are both ranked first in the country. dont know why i thought someone would pick against them lol. maybe i didnt. I need someone to at least make oregon think though. damn! Smile Well Oregon finally had to think. Stanford is smiling somewhere.

Bib's College Football Pick 'em 3: Week 4

Spurrier knows how to destroy a team.

Ive been defending him for the past couple of years but you dont win games when you play games with the most important position on the team.

Garcia should have been in the game at the end.

You live or die with your QB.

Now he's got 2 weeks to think about how he wasnt in there to lead his team in the end.

He'll be looking over his shoulder against Bama, and the team will be waiting to see when Spurrier is going to pull him again.

Winning teams dont pull their QB after he makes a couple of mistakes. but anyway

I've got updating to do.

No idea where these last 6 games landed me

Well SC went down, so I at least got that correct. Too bad the Gators couldn't flop like the longhorns did. At least I locked up a share of the best record for the week, and kept my number one spot in tact.
