    The Oregon vs. Boise State game was not included in the available picks (don't ask me why because I really don't know) so really no one has lost anything yet.

    Sports are back, and lo, so am I. In it to win it, you can win it in a minute when you spin it spin spin it.

    Results from Week 1:

    1. Transformers 3 SOON - 151
    2. Gig 'em Aggies! - 150
    3. Lowbacca_1977 - 148
    4. Pryor 2 Your Destruction - 147
    5. I Smell Roses - 145
    6. R...J's bad picks - 142
    7. Gunny's Nonsensical Picks - 135
    8. Clemsonwinseveryweek - 111

    [hr]

    I won Week 1. It seems that the one with the most points wins each week and everyone else's results are dropped.

    I will keep a tab on how everyone does week to week. Remember, one week (of your worst point total) will be dropped from everyone's score at the end of the season.

    I will post the upcoming games for Week 2 once they are available to pick.

    It will be my drop as well. Because I didn't make the picks until after the noon games began.
