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!

*A little something extra*

Posted by a gamecock fan concerning the game . . . gotta love the passion. there's a video link after the lyrics

The Hammerdown in Colatown

My Picks: 9-3

Both teams can put up points but I like Baylor's D a bit more. They could sneak into the 25 with a win this week . . . I hate you Texas Tech

hmmm What excuse can I use to pick my Gamecocks? We're coming off of a bye. we're at home. Garcia is pissed and has something to prove after being benched at Auburn. i think  a running QB is a bit dif. than a running back and our run D is perhaps underrated right now. whatever. no mystery in this pick. lol GAME

AAAAAAAH! EAST is Ours to lose! lol alright back to business

Cant take A&M as much as I want to. They could win this game (or I wouldnt have put it on here) but the FIU game sticks out for me. They also have only had one real test and they lost so . . . A&M definitely showed up. When i pick games like this and nobody takes the underdog I almost hope for them to win but I'll take it lol

so. UCLA is on a winning streak. and Cal is on a losing streak. Law of Streaks and what not says take the bruins but I like the Cal D. They can slow the UCLA run attack enough to let thier offense pull off the victory. Yeah Id say that Cal D showed up . . .

Yates has looked good this year and NC seems to have hit a stride here. they're at home so that helps and I honestly havent seen anything from Clemson thatd make me feel otherwise. Ugly (I'll assume) but an NC win nonetheless

Aggh! On paper i want Mich St. but they are playing @Mich . . . Im going to go with them anyway. Shoestrings or whatever they call him (yes I know what they call him) seems to do just enough to get the wolverines the W out there but that magic isnt going to last forever. I expect another close game but I like Michigan State's D and hate michigan's. Go Sparty! Michigan State should have woken some people up by now . . .

Honestly, if this was at Colorado Id take the buffs, Im not impressed with anything Mizzou has done here. The San Diego state scare is making me question them while colorado has basically done what they're supposed to against underdogs and even beat Georgia (no matter how down they are) Colorado could win this based on what i see . . . So Missouri was not so nice to Colorado. This is the Colorado team I expect to see. not the one that beats Georgia.

I feel like ECU has been on here every week. and I feel like Ive picked them each time. Not this time. Like their offense. hate their D. I basically picked Miss because Id lost with ECU the past two weeks lol. Oh well

Ah yes. two overrated (IMO) SEC foes in a showdown. Great defenses. horrible offenses . . . LSU's offense is just a little more horrible and they're on the road so. Florida it is. Perhaps LSU's D isnt the least horrible, holy crap Florida lol Les Miles loves playing with that clock

USCw has been challenged in every game except Washington St., even by a garbage Virginia squad. I cant justify taking them here . . . Stanford needs this rebound W Did I pick a slate of games or did i pick a slate of games?!? another last second win here

Eeeeeeeeeeeeverybody's on Miami. I dont get it. I feel like Miami could lose any game they play. Harris is going to throw some balls up for grabs and FSU has the athletes to go get them. I like this to be an exciting game. Should be lots of energy. a couple harris TD's a couple Harris picks, Ponder meanwhile DOESNT try to do too much and his team wins because of it. Only 1 pick for Harris huh? lol. FSU handled them quite easily it appears.

3rd matchup of the week between teams ranked wthin 2 spots of each other in the AP (33 and 34) Keenum is out and though the Houston offense is still running... Or is "Running" i should say no passing TD's last week for the freshamn. In their only other tussle with a big boy they only put up 13 against UCLA. gotta go with the bulldogs here. Yeah . . . SEC>C-USA lol I cant wait for next week! lol Im jacked, pumped, amped, juiced, riled up and all that other good stuff. and I smell like drunk carolina chicks! lol

Bib's College Football Pick 'em 3: Week 6

Bib's College Football Pick 'em 3: Week 6

1. I really wanted to take Baylor, but I think they will fall a little short.2. Bama is the best team in the SEC and the Country (man, I hated saying that).3. A&M finally played a real team last week and looked pretty good (I was proud). Unfortunately, they play Ark this week.4. Should be a pretty good match up of Cali teams. Even though UCLA beat Texas, I like Cal here.5. Tough game to pick. Clemson took Auburn to overtime, so I will go with them. UNC looks impressive though.6. Two Cali two Michigan teams. Again this should be a great game, so I will just say it like this: WOLVERINE!!!7. Missou gets revenge for the fifth down play from 20 years ago. Every time they beat Colorado, they are getting revenge for that debacle.8. Gotta go with the more complete team here. S. Miss.9. Bib, you put both my teams on here on the week I can't pick either one. It's going to be a long weekend. f.u. <- that's what I call them.10. Love the Stanford mascot. Love their team even more. You would think they would have a Cardinal...whatever. HATE USCw!!!  Stan11. I really want to pick Fla St. because I like Jimbo Fisher, but I don't think they can go the distance vs. Miami. The U12. This and the Bama game (sorry Bib) might be the easiest games to pick this week. A mediocre SEC team still beats a good CUSA team.
