    I did a really quick breeze through my picks. Really quick. More important to make picks than... Basically went with favorites unless I had a "good reason" :norton

    Really thought about picking TAMU-- :baldy But that was to cover. So far, not a great week, but not a bad one either. Probably end up about 50/50

    Go Nevada!!

    My best week ever, 15! I'm now above average, 109-106.

    And, don't ask, I don't have a clue how I picked 15. :confused

    The statistical picker is laying a big fat deucer as of late. Sticking with it though. Even though Jurgen has cast the coin aside.

    No coin, the spread as always makes many choices very um interesting.


    The Little Engines that Could--
    I really struggled with Utah State/LaTech--- teams like this usually kill me, as I like them. Mid Conference teams that try harder and do well. So I pick them.
    Here we have them head to head giving LaTech the home three. :lol3

    .....do you really spend on your picks? I spend 2-3 minutes in total. Long enough to look at their records, consider who's the home team and try to account for the spread. It's hard for me to give up more than about 20-22 pts to anyone though.

    Usually about the same. Don't check records, except on about three or four games.

    I went with the points thinking teams were going to try to run it up for appearances. Forgot about the Gales of November...they've sank many a program.
