foxie you and your horns are going down!!!

But seriously, you think UTA is going to take the BIG12 crown or give it to Oklahoma or Mizzou?

USC is going to be in fight for the PAC-10 title.  They win; this it would 6, 7, or 8 in a row.  Too many to count.  :P

Fight on!!!

lots of good teams this year in the Big 12, anyone could take it...look out for Texas tech, if they built a Def this offseason, they could easily win with their scoring air show......but my Horns will be out there Hooking'Em all season long!

i can add the spread I suppose, what do you guys want?

don't forget to make your picks this week, first games start on thursday!  The point spread has been turned-on to keep this challenging, good luck to all.

Oh yeah, it's not to late to sign up

Relatively urgent question:

When the spread is "off", that means that the spread would have been too high to be feasible, i.e., they are expecting a huge blowout, correct?

If so, does that mean all we have to do is pick the winner correctly?

Well, that certainly makes things easier on those games!  (Baring another Appalacian State-type upset!)  :o

OK, one more question.  Do you assign the #1 or 21 to the game you are most confident about?  (Sorry, I'm a newb to this!)  :P

start with the highest you feel confindent on and give it a 21 which if you pick the game right, you will score 21 points...and so on and so on, with #1 being the game you feel least confident about.....it makes for some fun outcomes

Since my plans have changed, I am in (for now).


Hunker down, Dawgs!!!!!!!!!!

glad to have you in with us Chris!  and consider me 'hunkered down'   ;)

I had a pretty pedestrian outing, but as long as my beloved Crimson Tide continues to play like they did Saturday night, not much will ruin my good mood!   ;D
