Alright gents, time for another season of Pick 'Em. Not a ridiculous amount of quality games this week, but all 6 of these games will feature top 50 teams.

For the team that you have the most confidence in winning that week, assign them a value of 6 points; for the team that you think has the second highest chance of winning that week, give them a value of 5 points, and so forth. Each poster can have their lowest weekly total waived from their cumulative score. And I'll include double-point weeks occasionally.

Last year, I frequently included 7 games with the idea that roughly 1 game a week would be canceled. I'm going back to 6 games a week, as I don't foresee too many cancelations this year.

Week 1 Games
Tuesday: Kansas vs. Michigan State (New York, NY)
Tuesday: Kentucky vs. Duke (New York, NY)
Friday: Villanova at UCLA
Friday: San Diego State at BYU
Saturday: Texas at Gonzaga
Sunday: Florida State at Florida

Can you post last year's final standings? I don't remember if I did well or just finished in my usual 8th place spot thanks solely to good attendance?

I don't know where else to say it, but thanks for the Tim Anderson/Paris Parham trade.

Doesn't your wife usually make your picks or is that one of the other losers here?

We probably lost 10 or so posters to attrition. These are the final standings I posted last year...

Not a whole of variation with the picks. Not a single poster has Michigan State or San Diego State winning. Just a 1 or 2 picked Villanova and Texas.

I think the home court advantage is what's most tipping the scales... And I'm sure most are aware of this, but Jalen Wilson won't be playing in the Champions Classic.

BYU vs. San Diego State surprises me a bit. I know I picked BYU but I struggled with that one. I wouldn't be shocked if SDSU beats them.

Last year was just awful. You’d find at tip off that certain players were out. I wish that everyone could have just quarantined for 48 hours like Kentucky did instead of playing Texas. 😀

Yeah, that wouldn't be the least bit surprising. Those two schools have had a lot of close battles, and they're old conference rivals, too. The road team has even won the last two years. Albeit, no crowd last season... Matt Bradley and Nathan Mensah make a solid 1-2 punch. And SDSU has a very elite defense. Teams are fairly even, though I think BYU has more overall talent. Lucas and Traore will be nice additions.

you can change it all you want, but when you look in the mirror all you're gonna see is the guy who picked against his favorite team until he felt guilty about it a few days later. have fun living with that for the rest of your life.
The only consolation to UK losing to Duke Tuesday is knowing I picked it right itt
