Man, you guys sure do pick fast. I need to cogitate on some of these, plus I've got to get Asher the wonder dog's buy-in before I submit the 25 winning picks.

So let's see.

1. You can pick fast and wind up in last place

2. You can cogitate and use an outside source and wind up in last place.

At least I have it out of the way and won't have to worry about my picks for the rest of the week...

Obviously, from my results (thanks for taking over the chief dummy spot for at least one week, by the way) I don't do too much cogitating. I have a fondness for trying to pick upsets, and I let my wishes over ride my logic on other games. Regardless of when I get my picks in, I never worry about it. Just a lot of good, clean fun. Best of luck to you this week, except for number 12.

LOL...I thought of you when I picked that one.

Yes, I tend to pick on what I would like to see happen rather than what I think WILL happen.

That's "Bruins", not "Bruind"

what?!? no Cal at Colorado - the battle for the PAC 12 basement? I nominate this for the "Just for Fun" pick. Put your votes in now.

Cal is 1-7. Colorado is 3-6. Neither team has beaten an FBS team (Colorado St. doesn't count), let alone a PAC 12 team. Colorado has the better record, but their PAC 12 scores have been embarrassing. Cal has been slightly more competitive in their losses. The game is in Boulder. Vegas has Colorado by 3. This is a true toss-up, folks.
