New, 40 comments

The 5 day weekend of college football has come to a close, but there's no stopping this runaway train now as Week 2 is a mere 48 hours away.

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.

ASU getting tramped by A&M was the Bad Beat for the pool this week, as was a lot of misplaced faith in TCU. Pretty split picks overall though. That will certainly change as the year goes on.

Apologies again if  you entered your picks for Week 2 before the lineup was set. Once college football normalizes this week, I hope to regularly have this picks post out on Mondays.

TIE BREAKER GAME
info
vs
LSU Mississippi St.

An Oregon/St. at Michigan/St. double bill this weekend and I'm taking both the P12 teams, because Harbaugh isn't ready for primetime yet and Oregon still feels like a team that will blow away Sparty. Vandy's long year rolls on. Like nearly every Saban Bama team, I'm not sure the Tide has their starting QB figured out yet and I'm also not sure it's going to matter at all. Ole Miss could have put up a billion on UT-Martin and I still wouldn't give them nearly 30 points at home vs Fresno. The line for OU @ Tennessee is bouncing all over the place depending which bookie you ask, but our's has it as a pick'em for Tennessee. I'm probably wrong, but I don't think the Vols have arrived just yet. Neither USC nor UK looked all that great in Week 1, but I'm going to take the team that didn't give up 21 4th qtr points to USL. BYU knocks Boise out of the national conversation for another year and rockets firmly into the access bowl conversation.

All Saturday games this week. Picks are due before each game's kickoff.
