Nearly everybody got off the slide this week, resulting in a 14-way tie for 1st in the weeklies. More charts, analysis and this weeks games after the break. (NOTE: as there was no guest on last week's Geaux Show, the guest picks were made by Team KATT tailgating guest McNeal, which may or may not be his real name)

Another week, but the top of the pack isn't pulling away as much. Unfortunately, the ATVS Staff continues to slip to precarious depths. Jrlz and C-Dub are all that remains to carry the torch for the "experts." Last week's last place janepriceestrada got out of the gutter by matching ADD-Day in picks. I assume Dmarzio is hoping for the same magic.

Not a lot of upsets, but what there were burned most of you. UGA and UK did their part to contribute to an 0'fer weekend in the SEC East. And shame on me for thinking Texas was just caught off guard.

Lots of good SEC matchups this week. We'll know a helluva lot more about where some teams, including our own stand after these games. Tulane wins a game, so back on the board they go. Clemson-UNC as an AU-LSU preview. Something's got to give in Michigan (I'm betting it's DR's ankle) and UT at least has shown promise in it's losses. I don't know why I'm picking UK either. Pure gut decision.
The USL-Okie St. game is not a typo. Yes, OSU is ranked. Yes, this game is in Lafayette. Yes, it's on a Friday night. And Yes, I am going to see this one in person and taking the Cajuns with the 21 point spread. The Man Who Is 40 vs. the Bustle Hustle. Don't say I never did anything nice for ya.
