    Can't believe the Vols beat Vandy. More people picked them than I thought they would. I did not go with them thinking they had no prayer. They've lost every SEC game until tonight.

    Thanks Cnest. Can't believe I've stayed up near the top and moved up one more place after only getting 8 correct, thanks to the bonuses. These upsets really had an impact. And there were several. Cannot wait for week 13.

    The bonus points are great, I like having to decide largest or smallest victory margins, more or less points. It keeps an extra twist on things so its not all about just making picks & hoping you don't bite the dust, and if you do bite the dust, bonus points can help you if you have a rough week.

    I like the bonus points. They have hurt me, but I find them to be an interesting twist, especially the ones for our Week 12.

    I've so far done well on the bonus points. Since I'm only 3 pts out of first I'm happy overall with my picking this year. Bring on week 13.

    I'll admit, this game scares me way more than a potential date in the SECCG against UGA. Arkies are playing great right now and have nothing to lose by throwing every wrinkle and trick at LSU. Heck, this is a potential shot at the National Championship for them! They are a much improved team than the one that lost in Tuscaloosa earlier this year, that is for sure. I don't know a whole lot about Hogs defense other than that they do seem to have surrendered some points over the season-but if they can force a turnover or two and score more than 21 points, they have a heck of a shot to win.:eek:

    I suspect that it will be a typical Hog/Tiger Battle. The big unknown is how they handle the death of their team mate Garrett Uekman who died yesterday. I suspect they will be very focused and have two reasons to win the game, a BCSNC birth and for Garrett....

    Go Hogs!!!!

    I think the Hogs are like Texas A&M, Missouri, And the Cocks..... Great in the "other" sports. BCS champions not so much.
