Week 1: Connecticut

Week 1: Auburn
I haven't, but I have a program that I wrote that makes it pretty easy actually. I just imput your names and the teams you pick each week and highlight a list of teams as they lose and it makes it pretty easy for me. Really just takes about 5 or 10 minutes each Sunday or Monday.
I can't remember the week, but it was somewhere around week 5 or 6 that we lost half the field on one game. I know I went out that week. We had about 45 people last year and if Utah St would have beaten Auburn, I think over 20 people would have been gone week 1.
Just make sure you remind if you switch screen names, Scoot......not that you're hard to find.
Week 1- South Carolina
wk 1 - iowa
just curious, what happens when there's only 1 undefeated left for 2 weeks or when there's 0 undefeated teams left? (or less undefeated teams than there are weeks left)
say there are 2 undefeated teams left, but 3 weeks in reg season (4 counting bowls). even if both win the 1st 2 weeks (so it doesn't matter which one you picked), and assuming you haven't picked them yet, what happens the last week?
Week 1: Nebraska
The game will end and a winner declared. Last year, the game ended about the 2nd week of November or so IIRC. It won't last the entire season.
Last year, there were 3 people that were still alive, but one of them had run out of teams to pick and the other 2 only had one team left and they had to pick the same teams. The person that ran out of teams was out and the 2 that tied went into a tie breaker that involved 3 questions. I think they were, who will win the Heisman, what two teams will play for the BCSCG, and name the score of the Army/Navy game (with the last question being the tiebreaker if the first 2 didn't decide it).
The game is very strategic as you want to pick teams the week before they lose as best as possible so that it leaves you a larger amount of teams to choose from than the rest. It's not just about who will win this week, but making sure you don't pick a team that will win their next few games. I am guessing Washington will be a popular choice for instance since they play LSU in week 2. Also, it doesn't matter early in the season, but later in the year a BYE week can kill you. If you have 2 or 3 choices left and they all have a BYE together in week 9 or so, you're done.
Week 1: UCF
Sound like a man after my own heart. I write programs for stupid crap all the time as well.
Time and change will surely (truly) show
How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!
i will take Cal week 1
For some reason I thought it had to be a bcs aq conference or und last year. Is that not correct?
If not and I can take a cusa team I will go with central Florida.
Stanford over San Jose St
Week 1: Texas A&M
Only one taken ucla I see
It's any FBS team
You are correct. You stand alone at the moment.
I'm winning this year. Already got my week 2 pick
It would shock me if you didn't win. Just make sure LSU is off your board by November 3rd!
Week 1 - Tennessee (over NC State).
LSU will be my final pick, bama will be off by then
So you'll be eliminated the week you pick LSU?
I'd say that's accurate.
Week 1 : Washington over SDSU
