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.

Alright I said I wanted a 3-9 and after this first game it could very easily be me lol. Im taking ECU. This will be an interesting game. I wasnt impressed with the way the Rutgers game was won by NC . . . sorry Heels. Im thinking if I had seen the Va Tech game I wouldnt have taken ECU . . .
Wake's D is Turrible. No way tech loses. Riiiight??? (now see my going against what i believe in acc games was working for me. lets see how actually picking because of what should happen goes for me) As expected this game was closer than one would have thought (one being me)
woooooow. lol. Neither team has done anything fantastic this year. I hate this game lol. Aggh. Cinci has looked like garbaje (spanish) all season and they just hung with OKlahoma, but then UCLA also had looked like gargaje (still spanish) and then BEAT Texas. i say Texas got the wakeup call they needed and do so . . . Yeah so i probably should have looked into this game more than I did. Garrett Gilbert no es good . . . I also think all the games I missed were road teams I picked to win. hmmm
Man, for one of these teams this game is going to be awesome! for the other another heart break. both teams have battled with teams that were "better" than them on paper and come up short twice. I watched the Oregon-AZ State game though and I liked what I saw in the Sun Devils' offense. QB wont throw 6 picks lol Well it was close. probably entertaining. Home team won by 3. this game is in AZ and AZ state wins.
Think Wildcatfan summed it up last week when he picked auburn. the kissing your sister thing. Clemson's D has been surprisingly weak though . . . Miami's ridiculously strong. Comes down to how excitable Jacorry Harris gets though. they go as far as he lets them . . . 2+ picks and they lose. Ugliest game ever. 7 turnovers total i believe. Jacorry Harris threw his 2 picks but Clemson turned the ball over 5 times. Kinda hard to win doing that.
so Florida woke up offensively last week huh? and Bama got scored on huh? based on last week's game I want to take Florida. Based on body of work, knowing Saban is a great coach, and wanting Bama to be #1 next week. Im taking Bama . . . So yeah. Bama handled Florida. SC-Florida will be a 3:30 game. I can live with that. leave home around noon or so. Perhaps grab some free beverages/food from some tailgates i know Ill have "friends" (more like people I know) at. Get home in time for the 8 o clock games (maybe)
Wisconsin is just that team that's always under the radar. Basketball and football. Theyre always good but dont get much recognition for it. Michigan state wins at home. Wish i knew more about these teams.
Hurts me to do this. I like NC State . . . Tech has allowed 3 points in the last 6 quarters of football though. I think the ship has been righted over there. A big win on the road against the team everyone (including myself) loves in the ACC will go a long way in putting them back on track to win the ACC. NC State started out hot but V tech got it going and didnt look back. I think they're officially back.
Who knows what Kansas is capable of. Baylor is at home and playing the same way every week . . . I like Griffin anyway. Yeah i dont think anybody saw that result coming. My goodness . . .
Two top ten run games going at it here. Defenses both top 30 but I'll say that's because they both control the ball by running. I like Air Force having not gone across the country and having played better competition thus far. Best punt block ever in this game. I love the passion these armed forces teams play with when they meet. everything left on the field. Air Force ends a 7 year slump and should take care of Army to win the cup.
Sorry Lions. Iowa's D is always studly. They're home and their offense is better. BOOM. Yeah Iowa didnt let me down . . .
Great QB matchup here. Oregon's offense is more well rounded. Both defenses ar tough. Game is in Eugene. Just like the NC State game I like Stanford but I have to take Oregon here. Watching the hell out of this game though. I guess it kinda compares to the NC State game. Looked like stanford was running away with it early. Then Oregon responds and shows who the better team is.
