Alright so here's how this is going to go.

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.

Good Luck!

My Basketball Picks: 8-4

  Central Florida is balling. Theyve beatten two solid teams from big conferences in Florida and South Florida. Miami's loss to Rutgers is a mega head-scratcher. Im only hesitant not to pick them because they beat WV and Ole Miss... but both are not what they usually are so UCF it is.

Gonna take stanford because I wasnt shown a reason not to...

Heels getting a lot of love but honestly the only reason I even hesitate not to take the Horns is becaus UNC is the Home team... sorry heels

I'll take richmond here.. i may have outdone myself with this slate of games lol

Wichita's two losses are to ranked teams. I like them a lot. Former winthrop coach remember? lol

Gonna take the Hokies... both teams are a little off

Wow I looked at Wake's body of work and made a face like "ewww"Undecided lol then looked at Xavier's and did the same thing . . . Xavier is home though so boom.

Got no reason to pick against the better team here...

  UCLA lost to Montana... and not Hannah. Thats hard to forgive...

Both teams have played SC State and Charlotte. Coastal Played both better and they got Mike Holmes (former gamecock who was kicked off team for disciplinary reasons) for the LSU game and knocked them off. This team should be a tournament team this year.

I'll take the Aggies at home and coming off of a win against Washington...

Both teams are hard to read.... I'll take the cats.

I'm surprised so many people are picking Butler to beat Stanford (at least thus far).  And here I thought I was going to be gaining valuable ground when they won.
