Boy howdy did things off the rails this week!
With 19 folks alive going into week five, a whopping seven (!) teams were picked to win. Auburn was actually the most picked team with five selections, followed by Texas A&M and Missouri with four a piece. This means none of you read the obituary last week, because the two folks we lost (DesertWeagle and thenategilbert, RIP) died due to picking Mizzou and Texas A&M. Sigh...
Alas, we’re down to the Elite Eight. If you’re still alive, you should feel good about yourself for making it further than Alabama basketball.

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.
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. 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.
