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 Picks: 7 -5
up until last week i worked under the assumption that you cant own a team one game and then lose to them the next. I've since learned that's bad logic. Cornell has cooled off since that beatdown of Harvard, and the Crimson have their pride on the line in this one. I say the dudes with the books in their symbol get revenge.
Each of Old Dominion's 7 losses has been on the road. but there's no shame in a 5 point road loss at missouri right? They play up to their opponents and have been playing better ball of late. I think they'll get this much needed road win.
whatever, im done going against the collective grain lol
Terps are a hard team to read but they appear to really have something here. G tech has athletes but Maryland has real championship pieces . . .
both teams were recently stomped by dayton. Xavier won the first matchup between these two and they're a good team on the road
UTEP is hot and has played better in the second game against an opponent and the opposite is true for Tulsa . I like both teams but UTEP is on a mission
I'll take the Aggies at home with their only home loss being to a good Saint Mary's team
There's got to be an upset somewhere right? Kentucky just hasnt been as good as they are billed to be/should be Vandy hung with them at Kentucky and it's hard to win at Vandy
going to go against my Baylor bias . . . now watch them win
taking Fairfield, they've been better against common opponents. also vermont hasnt played a decent team in a while
taking Nova because I can . . .
gonna take Ohio State here. they've been hot lately. just lost to that Purdue team that has gotten themselves back on track. Michigan state has been slacking, lost 3 in a row then battled for most of the game with Indiana
