Starting note-the games are listed from 1-25, that isn't the team rankings. Also, please remember I am trying to avoid the FCS teams here, so a few ranked teams that are playing FCS squads will not be listed (and its sad that there were so many teams that went this route this week-it was very difficult to get to 25 games).

Using the coaches for the rest of the year as there are no teams not eligible for ranking and it is the BCS feeder poll. There are a few decent games-and will use some of TIN MAN's suggestions for the extra games, but this week is looking average at best for fans:

1. Ohio St. vs SDSU
2. Oregon at UVA
3. Stanford vs SJSU
4. South Carolina at UGA
5. Florida at Miami
6. LSU vs UAB
7. Notre Dame at Michigan
8. Oklahoma St. at UTSA
9. Oklahoma vs WVU
10. Texas at BYU
11. Nebraska vs Southern Miss
12. Northwestern vs Syracuse
13. USC vs Washington State
14. Cincy at Illinois
15. Navy at Indiana
16. Tulsa vs Colorado State
17. Michigan State vs USF
18. Hawaii at Oregon State
19. Utah State at Air Force
20. Missouri vs Toledo
21. Auburn vs ARK State
22. TENN vs Western Kentucky
23. North Texas at Ohio
24. Army at Ball State
25. Idaho at Wyoming

Again, sorry about some of the non-sexy matchups but I got chrome to work to post this at least. At least once the conference games start up there will be fewer cheese games.

I threw away the new crystal ball I'd purchased; it did a crummy job last week. Madam Mimi has her fortune telling kiosk open again, so I consulted with her for week two. My old crystal ball is gone. I concluded it was hopelessly broken in 2010, smashed it into a few million pieces. The damn thing tried to tell me the Horns would lose to I-State.

How boring, everyone picking against Notre Dame again...but will try to sell us that Florida vs Miami is a matchup of great teams.

ND beat Miami 41-3,,,

I am not even a SEC fan and I can not wait for Georgia vs South Carolina.

Clemson reverts right back to form playing South Carolina State. The fans then wonders why it is always left out of the conversation of top programs.

Is it now? I understand that the picks are selected based on the rankings, but could I request that there be a way of designating the home team in the game selections? Either by consistently saying "Team 1 AT Team 2" or by capitalizing the home team or something? Capitalization won't work well if you also use acronyms (like UGA) but I think that would be less work for the poster than using bold or italics or something like that. Some of the selections currently use "AT" but others, like USC - WSU, use "vs", which I took to mean the same thing. But apparently that's not the case.

Also, I'd like to officially switch my pick from Washington State to USC. In Pullman they had a shot, but not in LA.

Orac, I'm assuming the home team is first in the "vs" ones. And the second team is home in the "at" ones. Not sure though.

Here's a pretty good site for schedules.

For it to be official you just need to simply re-post your ballot with the change(s) made.

And I agree and thank you for your input, for example:

Washington St. @ USC certainly makes clear the home team.

Armpit and I discussed a lot of changes during the off-season and he was very responsive to my ideas on how to streamline his contest. In Armpit's defense, because of the short week I think he was feeling rushed but I do like how he posted the games in the thread header instead of in the comments, that way the game list is visible on every page.

Please re-post!

I'll do it on Wednesday. I'm on my laptop and don't have a mouse. Can't copy and paste.
