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.

My Basketball Picks: 8-4 I cant believe I didnt pick the Baylor game...
I'll take the Gaels on the road. Vandy has been playing to their opponent. Dangerous at this time
Taking Temple. They beat Georgetown and played Nova close on the "road" (same town) but still...
I like the way The Longhorns have been winning. Margin of victory is a huge factor come tourney time and these teams want each other like they would in a tournament game.
Well Marquette handled them at home but Im not falling into that trap this year like I have in the past. Notre Dame seems to be a different team at home.
Yeah I cant read Stanford . . .
Guess it's me and Lil taking UAB lol. Pretty evenly matched teams so I'm taking the home team...
Both teams have had their nothing but close ones in conference play (including each team's loss to my gamecocks) Arkansas has lost each of their road conference games, no reason to think that'll change.
You know what... forget it. Let's go with two of the top 3 going down.
I could see Illinois winning but Ohio State might be my favorite team this year...
Cinci hasnt beatten anybody honestly but theyve handled thier lesser opponents well and have played the big boys in the Big East close.
Neither team has been impressive to me... Michigan State is too turnover prone to take this on the road in a hostile environment.
