Bump: friendly reminder to get your picks in. Feel free to join if you've never played before. BMooney54 pretty much led wire to wire last year. Let's see if we can dethrone the champ.

Football is back! That was fun, wasn't it?

Week 1 in the pick'em is typically the toughest week, because you just don't really know how good or bad teams are, even when there is a preseason. This year was even harder since this was the first glimpse we've gotten of these teams. All that said, the winner of week 1, correctly picking 12 out of 16 games correctly against the spread was none other than Ras. Could he be returning to his 2013 championship form?

Second place finishers were: last year's winner Bmooney54 and 2014 champion chad massoth, each with 11 correct picks.

Other former winners Andy McNutt, Colton Mickelini and Riley McNutt, along with Dan Morency, Jeff freeman, John Mickilini Julie M and Patriot in Indy tied for 3rd with 10 correct picks.

Will we have our first repeat winner this year? It looks like several former champions are primed for big seasons.

Get your picks in for this week and let's see how this story unfolds.

Ok, so many of us are starting to wonder what Bmooney54 does for a day job? Does he work in Vegas as an odds maker? The defending champion from 2019 won week 2 with 12 correct picks, and this total includes forgetting to pick the Thursday game. That, coupled with his 11 pick 2nd place performance in week 1 moves Bmooney54 into a 3 game lead in the season standings.

Rookie Yande M, who sat the bench last week, made a strong debut, finishing 2nd with 11 correct picks. Third place saw a tie with 5 players getting 10 games right, including Riley M, Seth E, Colonel C, Ron S, and Brennan A.

Nice picking everyone.

As stated earlier, the season standings show Bmooney54 in first, with 23 pts followed by Julie M, Riley M and Chad M tied for second with 20 pts each. In third place with 19 pts are Colton M, Daniel M, and newcomer Seth E. It's early and a lot can change and change quickly.

Reminder, today is Thursday, AKA PickDay. So be like Jameis Winston last year and get your picks in.

Good luck.
