My apologies for the delay this week, a minor auto accident has turned my week into chaos. (Your fearless leader is fine, but his humble station wagon is in intensive care). As if it was a sign of trouble ahead, my picks continue to get worse as the season progresses, with a 4-7 mark last week and slipping to an overall season record of an even .500. Melancon101, expect an email shortly to claim your GOLDEN ATVS KOOZIE OF POWER. A new winner is picked every week, so it's never too late to join. To sign upJUST CLICK THIS LINK. The password is "tigers".

Just blood. Blood everywhere. The SEC Doomsday Weekend claimed victims everywhere, but our own miscalculated confidence in LSU was the most damaging, posting possibly the biggest upset in ATVS - Geaux Show Pick'em history. South Carolina's stumble in Knoxville was the other big upset for the group, while the rest of the SEC's forgettable weekend had decently balanced picks among the group.

As I have been warning all season, DO NOT TRUST MY PICKS. That said, it's time to go for broke. No win (I'm not insane) but maybe the Vols can get a late backdoor cover. The ACC Wheel of Destiny strikes FSU swiftly. Mizzou (MIZZOU!?) locks up a trip to Atlanta. Last week I though UCLA would lose to Stanford and then pull the upset over Oregon this week, but UCLA did not look good at all, so my new hope to knock off the Ducks will be the surprisingly good OSU Beavers. I'll take Vandy and their insanely offensive punter over a Johnny-less A&M and their turnstile defense. If Tulane gets bowl eligible this week, the world may implode. So pack up your canned goods, folks.
