    Something new we are going to start and similar to what Sdunlap does for Bowlin for Roses is handicapping contest of user games. Every Crop member begins with 100 units and can place wagers each week on user games. Winner is deemed Handicapping Champion for that season.

    Point spreads for week seven
    Alabama (-16) at Maryland
    Florida State at Miami (-8)

    For those of you not familiar with point spreads, in the first game, Alabama is favored to beat Maryland by 16. If you select Alabama, they must win by more than 16 for you to win your wager. If you select Maryland, the Terps can either win or lose the game by less than 16 for you to cash in. You cannot play games in which you are one of the users (to keep our league integrity). If you want to lay off the games for the week or miss one, that is fine, your bank remains. Once your bank is zero you are out for the season. Post your wagers in this thread. I will log the standings after every week is completed.

    This is going to be fun for sure. Props to Sdunlap on the brillant idea.

    I will take Alabama on the (-16) spread, put me down for 25 units

    I will take FSU on the (+8) spread as well, put me down for 5 units

    Don't want to use dollars Tuco $$$$?

    Come on GSU, shock the world (and give me an early win)

    G- "units" lends itself to the fictional stakes
