    2018 Weekly College Football Pick'em

    Does anyone feel like we're re-living a scene from the movie "Groundhog Day"? ... that scene where it's once again time for our weekly college football pick'ems ..... we're glad football season is once again upon us .... because our Reds are once again in last place (with no hope ion sight)

    I apologize now for getting a somewhat late start (had it posted last year by mid-August). I knew it was fast approaching, but I've had a lot on my plate this past month (getting ready to retire, etc, etc) that the time escaped me (LOL).

    It'll be the same format as last year (but always open for suggestions). And for any "newbies" that may be interested, here's how it's played ....

    - two divisions (B1G and Other National Games) .... we play the entire B1G schedule, while it's ala carte in ONG (10-12 games picked, and I try to be "selective" so that they are competitive)

    - There will be a mixture of games played both ... 1) straight up (simply pick winner or loser), and 2) point spread.

    Those games designated as "point spread" games will have the spread in bold parentheses next to the favored team forfeiting points. For example ... on the below schedule, in B1G division, Minnesota is giving N. Mexico State 17.5 points. And I will add .5 to any point spread that is a whole number in order to avoid ties.

    But it's all about having fun, so here goes (and we all know they'll be a lot of cupcake games these first few weeks) ....

    Wow! Some quick responses already! I'm impressed. It was such short notice I wasn't sure. Cool.

    And I meant to use point spreads on the OSU and PSU games, but was really in a rush, so "Oh well" (it's only week 1) LOL

    And welcome back Danny!

    I get it.

    Like he said, it's all in fun. I'll likely need a few gimmes this week. With no preseason or anything, there's a lot of guessing here...
