*A Reminder here at the top that it's a very good idea to wait until you see this post each week to make your picks, because the games are not set until I post this. A dozen of you will have to re-enter your picks for this week.

Oh My! Some unmitigated disasters in the picks this week from the leaders of the pack. Former #1 All Saints Day came crashing back to earth with a 4-7 weekend while reigning champ and Top Ten contender ADD-Day brought up the rear with a 2-9 week. Your new leaders, last week's results, and this week's picks after the break.

Nearl said he was coming for the top and All Saints Day's landmine of a weekend was enough to bolt him to the top. Note that The Geaux Show's regular co-hosts Big Wee  and Godfather Pat are having a much more impressive showing this season.

Our hopes that maybe Bama wasn't for real this year were all but extinguished with their beat down of Arky. Other bad bets for the weekend were State's surprisingly close win over La Tech, Florida St. yet again making themselves irrelevant before October, and the Vandy hope train coming quickly back to earth.

The early leg of the C-I-C trophy usually makes for a great matchup. The number of undefeateds is greatly reduced this week with Bama-UF, Clemson-VT, Nebraska-Wisconsin, and one of last year's great upsets Texas-Iowa St. It's rare thatI'd pick against the SECW in a non-conf game, but there is a high chance the Ole Miss administration just leaves Nutt to fend for himself in the Valley after this game.
