New, 10 comments

There's still plenty of time to join in this year's game. If you played last year, you have already likely received an invitation email to this year's pool. 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 was a bloodbath in last week's picks, with only 8 entries passing .500, and mos doing far far worse. It would seem Lady Luck is not on our side this year.

SemperHawg rises to the top in the overall standings basically on the fact that he/she didn't crater in Week 2. With most of the field at .500 or worse, it's still anybodies game for the famous sweater.

Vegas knows exactly what they are doing. Failed covers by UGA, LSU, Bama (!?!), Mizzou and Arkansas's embarrassment in Little Rock basically knee capped everyone's week. Congrats to the 7 folks who correctly picked Toldeo covering.

TIE BREAKER GAME

vs
Auburn LSU

On to the next one. BC is sneaky good and I think FSU is in for a reality check, gimmie the home dog. Now that Bama's out, A&M vs any number spread seems like a good idea. UConn is actually not totally dead yet, but Mizzou should fix that. GT has put up amazing numbers for a triple option team, but they've been playing worse than nobody opposition. ND is good, but has a new season ending injury every day. I'll take GT's cut blocking lines in this pick'em. Tx Tech covers ARK, but isn't good enough to win. UK gets a win over UF while they can, Bama puts the Ole Miss hype to bed, and the nut-punching Miracle Mormons are good enough to at least cover the frankly ridiculous 16.5 points, and maybe even win.
