    Starting with the week 3 games I'm going start a contest - I will pick one game each week between users and ask each of you to post who you think wins AND what the point spread in the game will be (regardless of the winner). The point spread will be used as a tie-breaker if needed at the end of the year. I will track everyone's success rate and the winner at the end of the season will be allowed to attempt to sway back one player in the offseason that would normally not be allowed under our rules.

    Our first game will be the week 3 contest between gowazzucougs (Alabama) and whygodwhy1111 (Arkansas). This game is big in the SEC West, and features two guys who have some history playing against one another. Make your picks boys.

    As for my pick - with Alabama's early struggles I have to go with Arkansas.

    Razorbacks by 17

    Nobody should abstain, pick the winner and score even if you are involved in the game. If you pick no score I'll assume you pick the winner by 3 points.

    Damn, no faith in Forest huh? You do all remember he beat WGW with WSU back in the Night Owl days. Against my better judgement and at the risk of getting run out of Auburn, my pick is:

    Alabama - 34
    Arkansas - 31

    Don't F*ck this up gowazzucougs

    I'm going to pick gowazzucougs due partially to the fact that he's had the game to play for about a week longer than WGW.

    Alabama 28
    Arkansas 17

    If I do lose, it will not be by 17 as Cheez predicts. WGW and I have only played three times, he has two wins, and I have one win. Also, I don't think you can read too much into the three previous games. In one game he was mighty PSU and I was lowly WSU. In the other two games, I think we were two equal or almost equal teams. Lastly Playing the CPU and and a USER are two different things especially on this year's game.

    Bama has the speed to match the Razorbacks' receivers. I was going to go with Arkansas by about 13, but this is the time that Cougs will get one.

    Bama wins 27-20

    That's exactly why I picked a high spread too. I dont think there will be that many points though.

    Arkansas 27
    Alabama 10
