Crap, my picks are the same as Colonel's. That means I'll miss on 9-10 of them.

.............Should have included Vandy in the notables. I'm fascinated by the team name of their opponent. Does anyone know what the hell a "Blue Hose" is? Why the hell they picked that name?

So who are you picking to win this one?

September 11, 2012  09:19 PM ET

Can you imagine having your daughter go to Presbyterian on an athletic scholarship and trying to explain (with a straight face) that she plays for the Blue Hose?

Blue Hose MascotMost everyone's picks will be about the same this week, Armpit said there were some good ones this week, wish he would share what he is drinking. LOL

3 games with ranked teams playing each other and a few more non-cupcake games as well. ASU vs Mizz and USF vs Rutgers could both be fun tv too. And no Savannah State this week.

I think their coach suggested that they quit the football program after he heard the AD say they would schedule a FBS team each year...

September 11, 2012  09:31 PM ET

And I would pay big money for the "2012 SEC West Champs" ULM will make if they do happen to beat Auburn....
