Friendly suggestion for the college pick em.....

NOTE: I'VE ALWAYS PREFERRED TOP 25 PLUS THE BIG TEN TEAMS ONLY, YAHOO PICKS SOME REAL JUNK! The commissioner can select whatever game pools he wants, I'm not crazy about Thursday or Friday games either but there are more now......but that's just me.  :lol:

HERE'S WEEK 1 Duke/Army, Hawaii/Navy really? And too many picks!

 

Deadline: 5 minutes before each game

I hear ya, but I think it is more of a test of college football knowledge to have to pick some of the more obscure games.

Plus, it gives me something to root for at midnight on a Saturday Night when I stumble home from the bar and Arizona St. is rocking it with UTSA.

I'm a big NCAA football fan and can appreciate some obscure games but would rather have more interesting games that I might actually watch like the Top 25 which includes about 5 big ten teams right now plus the rest of the big ten. Oh and no #4 OHIO STATE in week 1, really?

Obscure? Well there's always Rutgers, Maryland, Purdue and Michigan.:lol:

What's anyone else think about it?

........edit add, more interesting Akron Zips at Nebraska -or- Oregon State at OHIO STATE?  :blink:

Last call for alcohol......or time to join us for some college football action!  It's quick and easy.

The Friday games with my picks (maybe) ;)

I decided to give you all a few of my secret tips on this picken' stuff:

1. Study every trend, stat and pointspread I can find.

2. Heads.

3.Tails.

4. Heads.

5. Heads.

That should kill me for next week. :lol:

Oh sorry diehard that c&p cut you off.....corrected! And 7 points high to low isn't really that bad I remember getting some real low single digit numbers last year from time to time.
