CodeGreen arises above the chaos to win this week's 2012 ATVS-Geaux Show Pick'em. As a reward for being either absolutely brilliant or extremely lucky, he or she gets the $10 gift certificate. For the rest of us, remember, you can still get either officially licensed LSU Tigers hoodies, jackets, t-shirts and more at the And the Valley Shook licensed store.
CodeGreen, look for a confirmation email with instructions on how to claim your prize. If you don't respond within three business days, the rules require us to award the prize to the next person on the list.
There is still a $50 gift certificate up for grabs to whoever finishes first for the entire season, so It's never too late to join the game by following the instructions HERE..
The majority of the field remains above .500, including yours truly. I'm also happy to say that 3 ATVS/Geaux Show staffers finished in the top 10, including a first place finish for Poseur. The full standings, last week's results, and this week's games are all after the break.

I am not to be trusted more than a flipping quarter, it seems, but that won't stop my utter distrust of the Irish. Moving on, the only major upsets as far as picks go were Vandy, Boise, and GT covering their spreads in losing efforts. I was also interested to see that we all picked nearly evenly on the Northwestern - Syracuse matchup that was itself a tossup (and if I'm honest, one of the more entertaining games of the weekend)

IS THIS THE YEAR that Dan Mullen finally wins a non-Ole-Miss divisional game? I'm not sure, but they will cover. A&M is essentially a pick of an unknown substance vs the known not-very-good of UF. SoCal on the east coast? Not with that spread. Taking UTEP for the outright win ans well as Mizzou. Houston is a tire fire, so La Tech picks up a win that will look impressive only on a resume. That LSU spread feels high only if you aren't a member of the delusional optimist club.
