Here's the Friday morning update:

757ODU - - Charlotte; UNT
AdoptedMonarch - - Charlotte; UTSA
bit_9 - - FIU; UTSA
elon77 - - WKU; UAB
Grommet - - ODU;
HeadsetGuy - - FAU; WKU
LetsGoODU - - La. Tech.; UTSA
mturn017 - - Charlotte;
odu09 - - ODU;
ODUDrunkard - - La. Tech.; UTSA
ODU True Blue - - ODU;
scotty2590 - - Charlotte;
VBMonarch - - Charlotte; UNT


Picks for this week are due by 1:00 p.m. (eastern time) tomorrow.

For those who haven't already burned your ODU selection, any no-picks will most likely default to USM based just upon the 37-point performance put on last night by Jhivvan Jackson. (Holy crap!)

Good luck to all.

You're a week late, but we'll treat you as a no-pick participant in week one, meaning that your ODU option has been burned. Welcome to the contest.

Here's the final (I think) set of selections for today:

757ODU - - Charlotte; UNT
AdoptedMonarch - - Charlotte; UTSA
bit_9 - - FIU; UTSA
elon77 - - WKU; UAB
Grommet - - ODU; USM
HeadsetGuy - - FAU; WKU
LetsGoODU - - La. Tech.; UTSA
mturn017 - - Charlotte; UTSA
odu09 - - ODU; USM
oduhoops71 - - ODU; UTSA
ODUDrunkard - - La. Tech.; UTSA
ODU True Blue - - ODU; UTSA
scotty2590 - - Charlotte; UTSA
VBMonarch - - Charlotte; UNT


Our two USM selections are by default, and can still be changed with an "official" pick by 1:00 eastern.

UTSA is the majority selection. Per the anti-bloodbath rule (Rule #9 in the opening post), if the Roadpeckers manage to screw the pooch in this afternoon's game against USM, this contest will automatically convert to double elimination.

A discouraging weekend for our Monarchs. But a good weekend for all but the USM auto-pick participants, which leaves us with a dirty dozen:

757ODU - - Charlotte; UNT
AdoptedMonarch - - Charlotte; UTSA
bit_9 - - FIU; UTSA
elon77 - - WKU; UAB
Grommet - - ODU; USM
HeadsetGuy - - FAU; WKU
LetsGoODU - - La. Tech.; UTSA
mturn017 - - Charlotte; UTSA
odu09 - - ODU; USM
oduhoops71 - - ODU; UTSA
ODUDrunkard - - La. Tech.; UTSA
ODU True Blue - - ODU; UTSA
scotty2590 - - Charlotte; UTSA
VBMonarch - - Charlotte; UNT


Looking ahead, I think that next weekend's matches are going to be a challenge. No obvious picks, so far as I can see.

Well, last night certainly sucked, and it's got me a in crash-and-burn mood.

I was leaning toward FIU. But no longer.

ODU, official.

I have a feeling that tomorrow evening will be the end for me and 757, who both went "Leroy Jenkins" with our anger-driven ODU picks. Here's the interim list:

757ODU - - Charlotte; UNT; ODU
AdoptedMonarch - - Charlotte; UTSA; ODU
bit_9 - - FIU; UTSA; Rice
elon77 - - WKU; UAB; La. Tech.
Grommet - - ODU; USM
HeadsetGuy - - FAU; WKU; FIU
LetsGoODU - - La. Tech.; UTSA; FIU
mturn017 - - Charlotte; UTSA; Rice
odu09 - - ODU; USM
oduhoops71 - - ODU; UTSA
ODUDrunkard - - La. Tech.; UTSA; FIU
ODU True Blue - - ODU; UTSA
scotty2590 - - Charlotte; UTSA; FIU
VBMonarch - - Charlotte; UNT; FIU

Interestingly, since 5 of 12 have already picked FIU, if the Pansies also lose tomorrow then this will convert to a double-elimination contest -- even for those of us who went rogue on other picks.

In any event, official picks from oduhoops71 and ODU True Blue are due by 1:00 pm tomorrow.

We have reached the 1:00 pm witching hour for today's games. Here's the fixed roster of picks:

757ODU - - Charlotte; UNT; ODU
AdoptedMonarch - - Charlotte; UTSA; ODU
bit_9 - - FIU; UTSA; Rice
elon77 - - WKU; UAB; La. Tech.
Grommet - - ODU; USM
HeadsetGuy - - FAU; WKU; FIU
LetsGoODU - - La. Tech.; UTSA; FIU
mturn017 - - Charlotte; UTSA; Rice
odu09 - - ODU; USM
oduhoops71 - - ODU; UTSA; MTSU
ODUDrunkard - - La. Tech.; UTSA; FIU
ODU True Blue - - ODU; UTSA; MTSU
scotty2590 - - Charlotte; UTSA; FIU
VBMonarch - - Charlotte; UNT; FIU

oduhoops71 and ODU True Blue have been assigned Empty Sue, who is today's dirtiest, smelliest dog.

We will very likely be losing some contestants today - - UNLESS FIU loses to MTSU, and this contest converts to double elimination per the >40% anti-bloodbath rule. The casualty list will be reported tomorrow.
