Somehow Tennessee was the safe pick of the week?

NCAA Football: South Carolina at Tennessee Knoxville News Sentinel-USA TODAY Sports

I think we’ve arrived at the point in the season where we have a decent grasp on who teams are.

For example, Georgia showed us that yes, even going up against one of the best non-Iron-Bowl gameday environments Auburn has had in years, they’re still the best team in the country and can withstand a few blows before pulling away.

On the flip side, LSU getting sliced and diced by the Wildcats in Kroger Field confirmed what most of college football fans knew but didn’t want to believe - that this LSU team really is just a redux of 2012 Auburn.

But that doesn’t mean we won’t still be wrong sometimes. Alabama lost to the Aggies in what was less of a freak miracle by Jimbo and more of a “we beat their ass straight up, and not in golf” kind of way. Does that tell us more about Alabama or Texas A&M? Who knows, honestly.

All of that to say, it only takes being wrong once to end your season in this game.


IN MEMORIAM

We only lost one soul this week, but hooo buddy did we lose it.

RESULTS

I’ll keep a running document of who’s picked who and who’s still alive. This will be the document of record, so let me know if you have any issues with it.

RULES

The rules are simple. Each week, you are to pick one SEC team to win their game. If you pick correctly, you advance. If you do not, well, see you next year I guess. Once you pick a team, though, you may not pick them again. If you decide to pick Alabama over Miami this week, you may not pick Alabama the rest of the year.

As usual, you can only pick a team who is playing a P5 opponent. No picking Auburn over Akron, or LSU over Central Michigan. I will go ahead and make a ruling on this now - you can pick Ole Miss over Liberty, who is an Independent.

All picks should be made in the comment section of the post, which will go up on Wednesdays (or Thursdays, whoops). Picks must be submitted by kickoff of the game you are picking.

Those who have been around will know, but a word of advice for any new players - go ahead and outline your picks for the season now. You don’t want to be the one with no eligible teams left to pick in October when everyone is on a BYE.
