They say teams improve the most from week 1 to week 2, which means that making outlandish picks in the random OOC games that fill week 2 is less safe of a gamble. Valsufan successfully navigated these waters to reach 9-3 for the week and used a score prediction of 48-7 to break the 7 way tie. You will be emailed soon with details on how to collect your ATVS KOOZIE OF POWER (same goes for you BBig24, I haven't forgotten)

If you haven't joined yet, there's still plenty of time to compete for this year's spectacular Grad Prize.

(For brevities sake, I will now only include the top 10 in the standings in this post. A full listing of the standings for both the individual week and overall can be found under the Standings listing on FunOfficePools.com)

As you might expect, the two weekly winners are currently leading, but there' not much separation on the board. It's a loooong season of pick'em ahead, so it's still anyone's game. Even if you sign up this week, I think you've still got a shot at the crown.

Just bad beats everywhere as the SEC failed to cover some cupcakes and the national games of importance proved that football isn't a popularity contest. The most popular correct pick of the week was GT over the Greenies, proving that most of you still have the proper hate in your hearts (and that the Greenies are terrible). Tennessee failing to cover the Sunbelt was the worst game for the group, but I was surprised how lopsided the picking was on both MSU @ Oregon and USC @ Stanford. P12 will be an interesting watch this season.

Vandy gets maybe their only win of the year. SCar seems to be heading into a buzzsaw. You really think BERT is going to win a scoring contest against Kliff Kingsbury? Do not adjust your sets, Miss St is playing a true road game AT South Alabama. Kentucky gets Muschamp to commit seppuku sometime in the 3rd qtr. HAMMOND AMERICA whuups the Greenies, Rutgers ends the B1G's last hope of a playoff team, and a young Tennessee fights to a valiant backdoor cover of a big spread.
