I’ve got to say, I didn’t expect to have a near winner in Week 2.
Of the 33 of us still alive last week, 32 of us picked either Texas A&M to beat Colorado or Kentucky to beat Missouri. Those two teams won by a combined 10 points, and both trailed in the fourth quarter.
What about the brave soul that didn’t pick with the masses?
Our very own PlainsmenDoItBetter called the Hogs over his home-state Longhorns in one of the wildest picks I’ve ever seen pay off in this game. I’ll let PDiB explain his genius himself:
“I went on an entirely panic guess” - PlainsmenDoItBetter
Bravo, bud. Bravo.
I’d like to take a moment here to remember our friend we lost this week. Maybe set an alarm next year?

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.
