With only 1 week of picks done, the standings are simple this week. Nice representation from the ATVS/Geaux Show staff with 3 of us in the extended top 10 and Big Wee with an early 2 game lead on the pack. While you may have missed week one, it's certainly not too late to join the masses in our season long game.

Right off the bat, y'all need a stern talking to. How in the world do SEVENTY percent of players from an LSU blog pick TULANE!? HAVE WE TAUGHT YOU NOTHING!? Ugh. Other big upsets that caught most of the group were UGA laying down in the Georgia Dome, Kentucky's utter ineptitude, and inexplicably, Southern Miss failing to cover. There are also far too many of you who thought they heard the echoes waking up. I will continue teaching this lesson until y'all learn it. The near dead-even split on the BYU-Ole Miss game is a perfect tribute to the way that game ended.

For Week 2, there actually is a decent slate to pick from. I almost didn't want to take Bama on the road with that spread, but my SEC loyalties won me over. I want BYU to pull the upset, but they only scored 1 offensive TD on Ole Miss. I'm never picking Kentucky again this season. Vandy in a toss-up because Hey! 40+ points last week! Miss. St. blows the doors off that spread. Michigan, because The Echoes Are Dead. Mark Richt won't even make it to the cocktail party this year. Utah is my upset special on the road in their 1st PAC-12 conference game.
