    Several people in the back of the pack after week 1 climbed way up the charts after a big week 2. Don't give up - one big week puts you right back in there. By the way, there are 21 games this week instead of 20 because I want to make up for the 19 we had in week 1 due to the Nebraska cancellation.

    The spreads are based on the home team. For example, when you see a minus sign (such as -9.5) that means that the home team is favored to win by 9.5. If you choose that home team, they have to win by 10 or more for you win that game. If you choose that home team and they win by 9 or less, you lose.

    On the flip side, if you see a plus sign (+9.5) that means that the VISITING team is favored by 9.5.

    Discuss.

    You might want to consider adding a couple insurance games this week. There’s no way the NCSU or SCar games are going to happen.

      I expect them to play through it. I'm tired of these delays and cancellations.

        You have to admit the prospect of football in a hurricane is intriguing. Quarterbacks could very easily throw the football out of the stadium. Skill players could probably fly down the field like Superman....at least until they themselves flew out of the stadium.

        The fans would have to be strapped in, and concession sales would probably be down.

        Crosswinds would make for interesting play, as well.

        Okay, I deleted the WVU/NC State game, so we'll stick with 20 this week. I'll shoot for 21 next week.

        You need to remove the SC/Marshall game.

        I made a few picks against the grain this week. This could be the week I make my move, or it could be the beginning of the end. :lol:

        Changed my pick from UF to CSU during the tailgate yesterday. Stupid. Otherwise I’d be in an overall tie for first. :facepalm:
