The preceding statements are solely the opinion of GoBoilers and are, therefore, probably not based whatsoever on fact, research or more time in thought than what was required to physically type them. They're probably correct anyway, so you shouldn't argue too much, because otherwise he'll just blather on forever. On the internet Al Gore invented.

Note: If anyone makes any changes, do not edit your original picks, as I would not catch the change. Either create a separate post or better yet, send me a PM.

You get information before you make picks...hmm...maybe that is my problem!
Andy, Barney, Aunt Bea, Helen, Ellie, Peggy, or Thelma Lou, Gomer, Goober, Howard and even Ernest T. Bass were all single. Only Otis was married and he stayed drunk all the time.

If you think this is tough, I run a pool that GoBoilers participates, that we pick 12 college and 6 pro games each week versus the point spreads. I post all the games in a spreadsheet and each participant can select which games they wish to pick. Been doing this for over 10 years and I believe the group has picked between 49% and 51% every year. Kind of makes one understand how and why the bookies make money practically every year.http://www.ypfcs.com/Pools.html

Pro games are the hardest to pick. You have almost no chance unless your picking a Bengals game.

I agree, but there are people that will say that the college games are the hardest. I really think with the point spreads, it is pretty much the same. 50/50 Kind of like flipping a coin.
