    We are going to have a pick 'em for the season for user games. I'll post the games in here, and the only rule is you have to get your picks in before each game starts. This should lead to some more content and possibly some hurt feelings. Most importantly, the winner will get an extra scholarship to use this year or next, so you will have the chance to over-recruit.

    Edit: You won't be picking your own games.

    aarondramp - Just my thoughts, we shouldn't select our own teams

    I can do that, but if we do that, we will need to go by winning percentage since some could have more user games than others.

    Not necessarily. We just go by who selects the most right, not by which teams wins the most. Just don't select a winner if you are one of the teams.

    But whoever has the most user games gets the fewest games to select. Whoever is in the Conference Championship Games and then the bowl game will have two fewer games to pick correctly.

    I think we did user pick em before and never had any issues, but hey you can do this how you want, was just my two cents

    We'll start without picking our own teams. If it looks like it's an issue then we will go with winning percentage.

    Given the talent disparity between ASU and everyone else, I'll be picking against them unless IBO can show me that his poor team talent won't matter.

    Houston. I see NIU getting off the snide and gotta rep the Big XII!
    Maryland. Don't see how I can pick against a guy that's beaten 11ish users in a row.
    Virginia. See above post
    Florida State. Going with team talent once again. Playing at the Doak definitely won't hurt either.

    You guys can still get in on this. Suge didn't get week 1, but the only week 2 game picked was missed by everyone.

    It wasn't missed by me so if we have to do by winning % (which I think we will since people will have different numbers of user games) then I'm winning!
