2014 ATVS - Geaux Show Pick'em Challenge - Week 4

New, 5 comments
Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

A solid week of picking has left me with a bit of a conundrum, thanks to a HIGHLY ELIETE picker. BBig24 has won the week again with a 9-3 record and a tiebreaker, but he had already won his ATVS KOOZIE OF POWER in week 1. So, as the Grand ATVS Chief Lackey/Managing Editor/Pick'em Chancellor of the Exchequer, I decree that any repeat weekly wins shall be gifted to the next place player as determined by the FunOfficePools tiebreaker system supercomputer. Therefore, I declare that Kruizer is the winner of Week 3. You will be emailed soon with details on how to collect your ATVS KOOZIE OF POWER (same goes for you BBig24 and Valsufan, our Koozies are currently being produced and you'll be notified soon when they are ready to ship) Anyone who has a problem with my rules can request a full refund for their ATVS Subscription fee in the comments below.

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

I can't quite remember when we have had someone separate themselves from the pack so early, but BBig24 is trying to make a run for it. There's still a long season ahead, but the rest of you would be wise to not let him/her get too far ahead.

Bad Bets Of The Week: LSU failing to cover, UCLA failing to cover, and UGA flat out losing to a SCar that's suddenly back in the SEC East driver's seat. I was a genius for my Rutgers pick and an idiot for my Vandy pick (NEVER AGAIN DORES). I was surprised to see how split the crowd was on Tenn-OU.

I'm really stinking up the joint this year, so lets see if I can regain some momentum before conference play starts up next week. The SEC homer in me can't help but take Auburn, even on the road. BYU is going to go undefeated and not a single person will campaign for them to reach the playoffs. No spread would be too high for Bama against the woeful Gators. Arky gets a scare, but will still win. Miami sneaks up on an undefeated Nebraska that's nothing but hype. Even with the LATE BREAKING 1ST HALF SUSPENSION for Winston, I'm still taking FSU and the points. 'Zona might be sneaky good, or I might be a horrible judge of teams. Probably the latter.
