Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The season is moving along, but you can still get in on our pick'em game and win the respect of your fellow readers. For new readers, the signup is simple. CLICK THIS LINK to be taken to our pool provider FunOfficePools.com. Sign up for an account, then come back here and click that link again to join our pool. This year's password is tigers. Picks will again be against the spread. Also, picks are due up until the kickoff of each individual game. Forget about making your picks until halfway through the first block of games? You can still enter a pick for any game that hasn't started yet, right up to the post-midnight kickoff in Hawaii.

Continuing with tradition, the Weekly winner will be shipped the world-famous ATVS KOOZIE OF POWER while the GRAND PRIZE for the overall season winner will be gifted a new amazingly terrible sweater in the size of their choice.


It's a rare week when yours truly shows up in the top 20, but my fine performance was no match for the 3 way tie at 10-1. Congrats Pimpkatt and the Greeks.

The only real shocking upset of the weekend was Ole Miss falling on the road at Memphis and bringing a shame upon themselves that will last for a generation. Otherwise, a pretty normal weekend. Even LSU managed to cover.

It's a really weak weekend, so it's not the best lineup of games to pick. Auburn will finally get of the slide, maybe? Pitt finally turns into Pitt in the hellacious Carrier Dome. Clemson over hapless Miami, but maybe it's a trap? Navy vs green water seems like a no brainer. Tennessee covers, but Bama's still Bama. Could FSU trip up in ATL vs the BEEES? A&M over Ole Miss in an ugly one. That isn't a typo: Coach-less and wandering SoCal is a 3.5 point favorite at home vs undefeated and likely playoff bound Utah. WHAT DOES VEGAS KNOW?!
