I'll come up with 12 games every week. I'll have them up on Monday or Tuesday of each week. I'll only try to use teams from Major conferences or small conference teams that have a shot at being in the NCAA tourney, and I'll only choose games that are to be played on Friday - Sunday.
You'll pick the winners and post them here or on the GB10 thread, PM them to me, just get them to me. Whether you post them here or not, I will add them to the blog to make them easy to keep up with.
My thinking is that keeping up with the regular season will enhance your brackets come March.
as for the bowl pick 'em just submit your bowl picks before the game starts and you're good.

My Basketball Picks: 8-4
Tough call. Louisville hasnt played anyone, UNLV has played a couple good teams but theyve played bad teams close. Im going to go with Louisville because they're home.
Dayton seems to have cooled off of late. ODU is home and has been tested much more also
my first road team here. VCU barely lost to Tennessee and South Florida on the road so they're road tested. They also have beatten Wake and UCLA.
Gonzaga has a few close losses to good teams but that last one against washington state was not close and is the reason i was pushed away from taking them here. The Irish are coming off of their first loss and will be focused at home.
I think Tennessee's style is going to be why they knock off Pitt on the road. Biggest game of the week.
Indiana's only real game was a loss to BC. Kentucky is young and unpredictable but I say they get it done here. Classic matchup though...
I dont claim to be a Wisconsin fan but they're one of my favorite teams. So consistent, you know what to expect from them no matter who leaves. Should be a good game but I have to take the badgers.
This pick ended up being easier than I expected when I put this game on here. Washington has the losses to two good teams in close games but they have more than taken care of business agasint everyone else.
Finish off Saturday with a ranked team going down. BYU hasnt really played anyone and the two best teams they played (St. Marys and South Florida ) they barely escaped against.
Taking tech to win here to end their 3-game losing streak. This team is nowhere near what we're used to Tech being but Penn State never got over that hump they were supposed to a couple of years ago.
Boston College confuses me right now. Going to stick with the team Im comfortable with in Maryland...
Clemson is 0-2 on the road and Im pretty sure FSU is better than ODU and my gamecocks.
