DISCLAIMER -- THREAD BLATANTLY RIPPED OFF FROM RECENT CBS SPORTS ARTICLE WITH CONF CHAMP PICKS


To semi-ease our way into the upcoming (but still not here yet, dadgummit!)season, post your picks for conference champs.

If it's a divisional conference, pick each divisional champ also.

You can pick as far down the order into the have-not conferences as you feel compelled to, but start with the big boy football conferences first, if you don't mind. They've earned the top spot with superior bagmen training and deployment over the years, so give them their due.

I don't intend to keep tabs on these, but might be kinda fun at the end of the season to review who-got-what right.

If BSU and UCLA/USC make it to their CCGs, I'll be happy.

If tOSU and Michigan go head to head in their CCG, I'll be very interested.

When's the deadline to submit my "wild arse guess" on conference champions?

If say you'll allow me up until about December 10, I think I can win.

Since there's no prizes at stake here, Dec 10 it is.
