Did I lose my mind when making picks last week? Maybe, but look where it got me. All the way up into the tie for 7th. I'm also impressed that each week we have added more players and there seems to be fewer folks who have stopped playing due to bad starts. The weekly prizes must be working.

YOU ALL LAUGHED AT ME PICKING STONY BROOK! WHERE DID IT GET YOU!? I appear to have 8 true followers, so let me warn you all now that a crash back to the ground is imminent. The upset of the week in our pool was Ohio St failing to cover a surprisingly tough Cal squad on what was a disastrous weekend for the B1G. Notre Dame remains alive, despite my best efforts. Oh Ye of little faith in the Sun Belt, you all should know by now that Kentucky does not actually field a varsity football team anymore. USC's stumble got most of us, but I don;t think anyone minds being wrong on that.

AM I MAD WITH POWER? Let's see how crazy it can get. Boise is a gonner this year. I see a party in Funroe on Friday night. 'Zona covers in a shootout, Ole Miss is not Tulane bad (unfortunately), Mizzou gets the first conference win for a newbie as Conner Shaw folds like a cheap suit. Cal is a crazy pick, but I'm on a roll. Michigan silences the Echos (do you really want to live in a world with a 4-0 Notre Dame again?), UGA puts James Franklin on the coaching change short list (for other jobs), K State pulls what will be called a shocker, but really isn't. And Dabo ensures that FSU misses the ACC title game AGAIN. (Is that even possible? Who knows. It's been more than a decade with the ACC's unintuitive divisions and I still can't keep them straight, nor do I care enough to look it up. Assume that the winner punches their tickets to Charlotte or Tampa or Jacksonville or wherever that title game is being played this year)
Didn't expect to end on an anti-ACC tirade, but there it is.
Thursday AND Friday games this week, so
