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: 6-6
Pretty evenly matched but NC has some better wins so Im willing to take them here.
Gonna take the Hokies here. No bad losses and they destroyed Miss. State which pops off the page.
both beat Georgetown and St. Johns 3 losses were close. Im taking the Irish because theyre at home
Gonzaga should take care of business. Portland is good but theyve lost the games against more talented opponents which gonzaga qualifies as.
Im pretty sure Pearl is out for this which should add to the team's emotion...
Gonna take the longhorns here. The USC loss is messing with my head but they take care of business otherwise. UConn has cooled off a bit as of late
Well neither team has been really impressive. Miami slightly more. Clemson is one of those teams that can play with anybody, and will also let anybody play with them. Hard to read so I'll go with the canes.
Ole Miss' best win is Penn State and thats just not gonna do it for me . . .
Kansas State handily defeated the only two teams that beat Oklahoma state. I had other reasons but when i noticed this that pretty much took the rest of the research out of the equation.
Gotta go with the wildcats. It seems Stanford has turned it up since conference play started but I guess we'll see in this game just how much.
Cleveland State seems to have taken care of business better in their wins. Valpo has a lot of close games against bad teams.
Nova might be overrated and Cinci underrated. We'll see at the end of the year but I like Cinci's defense. Nova has had a lot of close games against nobody opponents

My Bowl Picks: 22 (35 games played)
Picking the more talented team better not backfire on me like it did with nebraska...
I didnt like LSU all season. I have n idea how they won games. Their defense is great but I like A&M's offense and the way they closed out the year.
Despite having lost to Tennesse to end the season I think Kentucky is the better team here. They have a good offense and Im aware of Pitt's defense but Kentucky plays in the SEC and has seen tough defneses and had success. Pitt would have to score to win.
Was gonna go do research but.. yeah Nevada should take care of business...
I think people are disillusioned into thinking Auburn has a good defense.. they dont. They have a couple good defensive players. Cam Newton IS the offense. Oregon meanwhile has the most productive offense in the land. Go Ducks...
