    Here we go again. I will be running the contest again this year, thanks to the BeachRunners for handling it the last several seasons. The rules are pretty much as you remember them, pick winning teams straight up or, if there is a spread involved I will include the points too. Copy and past the slate into a response and highlight your favorites in bold. Picks due by kickoff. Whoever has the most points at the end of the conference championship games wins. We will do something different for bowls, if there is interest in it. No whining. Take smack talking to the NCAA Battlezone thread. I am going to include some preseason predictions good for end of season points that will be added onto your cumulative season total at the end of the season. Good luck and have fun!
