    2014 Weekly College Football Pick'em

    I thought I'd start this thread, and throw it out there ..... since I've been late in the past ..... that the new college FB season starts the last week of August and I'll be posting both categories ...... Big Ten and Other National Games ..... probably by this weekend.

    And we'll just be picking the winners (straight up), and not playing the lines (until the Bowl games) as it has normally been in the past. That's what a majority, when asked last season, want to do. We like to keep it simple for the simple-minded!

    But I am going to make one change, based on suggestion (texasdave) where we'll have a "Game Of The Week" where we'll play the line.

    Don't listen to that guy. His dog knows more about college football than he does.

    Re: 2014 Weekly College Football Pick'em

    I sincerely apologize to everyone, but I had a very "difficult" past week. We had a little family emergency (my wife's Mom is not doing good) that had us shuffling back and forth from here to the other side of Columbus for a few days. Between that, and all the running around we were required to do, I just plum forgot. Too much going on in this 58 yr old mind right now! LOL

    Here Mom is doing better, and things have somewhat stabilized. Again, I apologize.

    I've got a two day weekend - gotta go in and work 12 hours today - So lets start it up next week, and I'll have the 2nd week schedule up tomorrow! I promise!

    Re: 2014 Weekly College Football Pick'em

    Alright - keeping with tradition - because if you will all remember (which I can't most of the time), we missed the first week the last two years because of me and my brilliant, analytic mind .... here's the week 2 schedule. And as usual, I try to pick the most competitive match-ups; but we all know how hard that is with all the cupcake games the first few weeks (LOL).

    NOTE: I selected Michigan State @ Oregon as the Game Of The Week - which means we'll play the point spread on that game. But they haven't come out with the spread yet for any games in week #2; but as soon as they do I will post it. I'm not a gambler, but does anyone know what day they normally come out with those? Because I may have to adjust WHEN I post each week's schedule according to when they come out with them. But at the same time I don't want to wait too long, going into the next week, to do so in order to give people time to analyze/make their picks. Some adjustment may have to be made here (LOL).

    WEEK #2

    BIG TEN

    Akron @ Penn State
    Central Michigan @ Purdue
    Howard @ Rutgers
    Mcneese State @ Nebraska
    Western Illinois @ Wisconsin
    Western Kentucky @ Illinois
    Ball State @ Iowa
    Maryland @ USF
    Middle Tennessee @ Minnesota
    Northern Illinois @ Northwestern
    Michigan State @ Oregon GAME OF THE WEEK
    Michigan @ Notre Dame
    Virginia Tech @ Ohio State

    OTHER NATIONAL GAMES

    Pittsburgh at Boston College (FRIDAY NIGHT GAME)

    No. 15 USC at No. 11 Stanford
    No. 18 Ole Miss at Vanderbilt
    No. 20 Kansas State at Iowa State
    East Carolina at No. 9 South Carolina
    San Diego State at No. 23 North Carolina
    Georgia Tech at Tulane
    BYU at Texas
    Fresno State at Utah
    Ohio at Kentucky

    No worries GAC! I'm glad to hear your wife's mom is doing better.
