Just insanity ...

We're picking at the same numbers; but with a lesser degree of success, because of no game postponements this week.

I feel like I need to get my head back into this thing.

Yep, it’s a tough season for pickers...... with the Big10 and Out West football just getting started along with all the COVID precautions for practices and game preparations are impacting the games and thus the predictability of probable outcomes. 8)

It’s still fun to compete against one’s self and after the games are over and the scores are in to question your own pick and ask yourself, “just what the hell were you thinking???” :lol:

Yeah ...

When I came in to make my picks, I fully intended to pick Michigan over Minnesota. I thought it would be a 10 or 12 point game at best.

Then, when I was scrolling down, I saw Spence's pick, and thought ... he knows what he's talking about.

N.C. State, Ole Miss, TCU, Florida State, Wyoming, Fresno State and SMU were all teams I hesitated on.

I guess listed to the wrong voice in my head. He needs to shut up; he talks too loud. :lol:

I just haven't paid the attention to CFB that I normally do. I did just finish my golf season so I have more time now.

I think if you know what teams you picked you have been here long enough we can trust to give them to Cane to be entered. I am alright with that anyway.

I nearly posted that myself ... but wasn't sure how the rest of you would have felt about it.

I'd accept the picks if they made their way onto the page.
