    "It isn't on the list, but I also pick Alabama to beat Mercer."

    I don't know, Edward. I think you ought to be fined for sticking out your neck so far on this one. I don't think the number 1 team in the nation has a chance against the mighty Mercer. ;-)

    In a weekend that provided a lot more drama than I think most of us expected, we had a tie atop the leaderboard.

    Neither Earl nor I had the right winner of the tiebreaker (seems the only ones who picked Wake Forest to win missed most of the rest of the games!) - so we have to go to an alternative use of the tiebreak score. I picked NC State to squeak out a close win, 34-31, while Earl picked the Wolfpack to beat Wake Forest more handily and hold them to a much lower score than their actual 30, 27-19. It feels a bit odd to do so, but under these circumstances it seems that I probably ought to declare myself the winner for the week. Thankfully we both have won in the past so this doesn't impact the Bowl series in a few weeks. :)

    Perhaps, but Bama DID beat Mercer.
