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

After seeing us play last night, I would be surprised if UF is able to beat us on Sunday. Not a good 3 pt shooting team and they were awful at the FT line. We're mixing in a lot of new faces but I just don't see them being able to score enough points against us even though they're at home. Should be a good test but think we'll make a run in the 2nd half to get up comfortably

Congrats to @duckboy33, @ExitFlagger, and @jhmossy on their perfect scores in the opening week of Pick 'Em. Really, really high scores across the board. So, I think I'm going to change it up, so there's less uniformity in the picks. I'm more interested in games like Houston/UVA, Oregon/BYU, and Purdue/UNC. However, I think just about everyone would pick Houston, Oregon, and Purdue. So, I'm going with matchups that are closer to being 50-50.

Week 2 Games
Tuesday: Creighton at Nebraska
Wednesday: Michigan State at Butler
Wednesday: NC State vs Oklahoma State (Uncasville, CT)
Thursday: Ohio State at Xavier
Friday: Arizona vs Wichita State (Las Vegas, NV)
Saturday: Villanova vs Tennessee (Uncasville, CT)

Probably would have done the Furman/Belmont game today if it wasn't being played today. A 9-hour window to get the pick in for that game is too small. That's a monster resume-building matchup. Two of the best mid-majors in the country.

FWIW, I like Belmont in that game.

I'd probably favor Belmont, too. Being at home has clear advantages. Love the Muszynski-Murphy duo. But, Furman certainly isn't lacking for confidence, as they just took down Louisville on the road.

Bryce seems to be as advertised. Trey has been awful.

Excited to watch Bryce play tomorrow. Should be a fun player to watch. And yes, Trey has been more than disappointing... Also curious to see if Alex O'Connell has gotten any better. Feel like Creighton has a better team, but Nebraska has the home crowd and the best player on the court.

Thats probably a fair statement.

Man, those are some tough games to pick. All are essentially a coin flip, imo. I have zero confidence in any of these picks. 😆 This early in the season it's just a crap shoot.
