    Stu's friend, SanDiegoKid89 is a new member on the Skybox, first one in a long time. Hopefully he'll introduce himself and give us a brief bio.

    Welcome SanDiegoKid89!

    I went to a.school at.Pt.Loma. It was.a.small facility up on a bluff overlooking the Pacific. It had a long acronym name. We called it FIDDLESTICKS. Nice area, I didn't care for California though.

    Week 1 is in the books, with Duke's upsetting Clemson last night, no change in the rankings. NDfan77 and LEATHERNECKS are tied for the lead. Nine folks are ties for second place. Looking forward to week 2 and more upsets??

    I thought for sure I picked Fl.St Over LSU cause I wanted to try to make my picks not based on whether or not I liked a team, player or coach but…I should have let my feelings toward BK have their way but….no, I had to make my pick based on the experts(right) opinions and we see what happened. Regardless, Kelly and LSU lost and I’m good with that.

    Rest assured Tim, you are not alone. My biggest fault is trying to do too much fine tuning, and believe me that will get you in trouble almost every time. :(

    I assume that was the case, but I cannot be certain.

    Don, I made it so you can make my pics. (1) Can you see my tie breakers? (2) Can you see if you can apply them?
