No Ark vs LSU for Battle for the Golden Boot trophy? I believe the heaviest trophy in college football.

I know, you are trying to make this a challenge. Sad that Ark has only been in one week of picks. Yes, that is how bad they are. Hard to be a fan right now.

I'm good with us putting in that game and taking out Michigan St Ohio State Doss.

Just add it.

So I have to wait to see how Spence votes because I have to vote differently from him because that is the only way I can overtake him. This would be a great upset victory and give us all a chance to beat up on Spence.

And so what if the prize money gets diluted... Let's see. No pie divided 21 ways is still no pie. So Spence just gets a larger piece of no pie. (Whatever happened to the money you got for having diarrhea of the keyboard?)

I can’t afford to lose my share of the pie.

Actually, when I was looking for games to put in this week's lineup, the Arkansas/LSU game was one I had considered. I just figured we'd all make the same selection, except for likely Doss out of loyalty.

I usually try to put as many of the rivalry games in the Pick`Ems that I can. Though, this season there have been so many where one team is simply that much better than the other, that I didn't feel it would serve any purpose than to give everyone a freebie, and to take away from a potentially closer knit choice.

On the other hand, there have been a bunch of lopsided victories in the Picks that looked as if they were going to be more competitive when I chose them.

So, If everyone wants, I'll add the Golden Boot game.

If I wind up replacing one, it would probably be the Troy @ Georgia Southern game.

Doesn’t matter to me. Whatever you put-up I’ll manage to pick the wrong one..... take the Liberty vs UMass game last week. Liberty was all over them and then what happened??? Umass makes a comeback late to tie it up and after THREE OVERTIMES kicked a field goal to win it. :lol:

1. Clemson (Dabo runs it up to impress Committee, wants #2 spot in CFP)
2. Texas. (After Okie St and WVU I’m hoping Tom Herman learned something)
3. Georgia (Don’t get caught looking ahead)
4. Oklahoma (Bedlam will probably end-up in a brawl)
5. Ohio State (C’mon Buckeyes get it together, you’ve got a heart to break up north)(oh, I just got some information that tells me this could be an old fashion slobber-knocker.... the answer my friends is blowin’ in the wind)
6. West Virginia (Remember Ames)
7. Utah (What happened last week???)
8. Penn State (Unhappy Valley)
9. Iowa (I wonder if the QB has figured it out yet?)
10. Cincinnati (Rumor has it that Charlie Strong is a candidate for the Kansas job)
11.Kentucky (Tennessee Fires Phil Fulmer as their Football Coach, and then hires him as AD to fix the Football Program :shock: a possum must have peed in the moonshine pot in Knoxville)
12. Houston (If Tom Herman doesn’t win in Austin, he’ll be back)
13. Duke (finally, Duke has a Coach who’s name you can spell)
14. Miami (I just love watching the GT offense..... ahhhh, the good ole days, but I also just love watching that speedy Miami defense...... ugh, those ole days weren’t so good for the Mountaineers)
15. Kansas State (it’s a Legend versus a Lame Duck)
16. Indiana (I still miss Bobby Knight, the man spoke truth, but behaved like an butt)
17. Troy (Alabama versus Georgia..... so to speak)
18. Marshall (Bring On The Herd, Bring On The Herd, Bring On The Herd!!!!!)
19. Pitt (Two former BITTER RIVALS COLLIDE....... screw you both)
20. Washington State (I heard Mike Leach talking about Woodstock the other day, maybe he’ll take the Buffaloes to the Woodshed)
21. LSU (Thanks for the heads-up Cane)

I have now altered my picks based on our Leader's, Spence, picks. The only way to catch up is to do something different and hope I am right and he is wrong. I am okay with plummeting, have many years of experience in doing that.
