2011 ATVS-Geaux Show Pick'em Challenge: Week 9

 

So, we have an interesting problem this week. The system we use at FunOfficePools.com will enter default picks of the home team if you don't enter your picks in time (a feature that some of you have turned off). As it happens, home 3teams in last week's pick'em went 9-3 against the spread, resulting in a 27-way tie for 1st this week. How would it affect the standings? Well, we have a new leader this week. The full standings, last week's results, and this week's games after the break.

THE TAFFY JAR HAS BEEN UNSEATED! Nearl made good on his word and is again king of the heap. The most interesting development, however, is that the pack has completely closed the gap with the leaders, as the difference between 1st and 54th place is now just 10 points. With the season entering the back stretch, it's still anyone's game. Special shoutout to Geaux Show's Pat (Kattgodfather) who has set the new high mark for ATVS/Geaux Show staff in the pick'em.

I know Vegas cashed in this weekend, as we all got burned by Arky's surprisingly close win at Ole Miss for the Bad Bet of the year. Holgomainia was also a big disappointment, as was Tulane getting pantsed at home by FREAKING MEMPHIS!

I'm pretty much going with the favoreds this week, with a few exceptions. Sparty is sailing through the tough part of their schedule right now and I think gets the road win in Lincoln. By rule, I do not pick Notre Dame. K-State's D will at least beat that spread. And maybe, just maybe, USC gets it's revenge on the PAC-12 by ending the conference's national title dreams.
