As Dr. Johnny Fever would say, "HERE IT IS, MY BABIES!" What we've all been looking for. Our top four seeds (Notre Dame, Miami, USC, and BYU) all drew a bye for the first round, since we had 28 schools "nominated". As promised, we have some interesting match-ups...a backyard battle between Ohio State and West Virginia, a match-up featuring two teams destined to battle for the ACC Atlantic Division championship (FSU and Maryland), and a pairing of two teams who could potentially meet in this year's BCS National Championship (Penn State and Georgia...keep in mind that this is written before The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party).
So here's how it works now. I give you the matchups. You give me your picks for each pairing. By pick, I mean the teams you hate more than the other. I know some of you won't have any particular feelings about some teams, but COME ON! IT'S FOR FUN! I'll set a target of closing out voting on Round One by Friday, November 7 (will move that up or back depending on when incoming votes die off) So talk amongst yourselves and give me your best hate!
HERE ARE YOUR FINAL RESULTS FOR ROUND ONE!! ROUND TWO COMING SOON!!!
