Another really good week of picks from most of you and especially by me.

This is a special moment in ATVS Geaux Show Pick'em history as, to the best of my knowledge, a staffer has never held the overall lead in the standings even once. There are a few of you who are starting to fall out of the race for the overall crown, but remember that there are prizes each week to play for and you should stick around for the whole season.

I was so SO close to a perfect weekend, but it was not meant to be. Obviously LSU was the bad bet of the weekend, but Cal was a field goal away from making USC nearly as bad for this group. At this point, I'm going to have to resign myself to the fact that ND may be a good football team, but I WILL NOT TOLERATE 20 people picking Tulane. You'll have a chance to make up for that mistake this week.

Call it a blind guess, but even with the upset over USC, I'm still not convinced Stanford is going to have a good year. Add that the game is in Seattle and I'm taking the Huskies. Spread is waaaay too low in WVU's conference opener. Monroe gets a mid-season bowl trip to New Orleans to destroy the still hapless greenies. Did you know La Tech dropped FIFTY THREE on a B1G team last week? Ohio St is the best team in the B1G and they'll get nothing for their efforts. Does Dooley turn around the season (and possibly save his job)? Is Texas a fraud of a team waiting to be exposed? Is Ole Miss even going to score a point this weekend?
Thursday game on the docket, so...
