For the alternate games, just pick the teams, then if I have to include them, you won't have to go back and change your picks later.

I only hope that if I do need to use these games, they aren't also Cancelled/Postponed :|

They’re either going to run the ball here or their going to pass it.

The fewer rules a coach has, the fewer rules there are for players to break.

See, well ya see, the thing is, he should have caught that ball. But the ball is bigger than his hands.

Yep, but I’ll say this, you’re one hell of a picker when it comes to picking games that are going to be postponed or cancelled!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

If you pasted my early ‘off the top of my head picks’ you got it there. You know how I do it by first just picking out of the blue and then do a little reading and check what the Vegas guys have to say, then flip a darn coin and make the pick.

I first noticed that 11th game on my picks when I was updating my own and noticed Cane’s pick list had the 11th game different than mine....... maybe next time I won’t do my research and pick list updating while watching a game on TV and sipping 1792. :wink:

......just hope it doesn’t screw up Derek. :roll:

If Central Florida keeps this up, I'm going to kick myself ...

I had this strong feeling I should take the Knights to win; but I convinced myself, that Cincy has been proving it, too consistently.

I continue to talk myself out of picking the teams I really want.

The good news is that both Derek & Spence picked the Alternate games when they did their initial Predictions.

So I can match those, to the adjustments I made as Cancellations & Postponements were announced.

Thankfully, we got a full 20 Picks, with 2 Alternate games to spare.
