Round #2 of Week #11: Don't Fear Excellence.

By Amsinger - November 05, 2007


39-16 is the record I'm trying to top from last week. To do so, I must continue my domination of the conferences I'm about to predict. Add up last week's picking records within the six conferences and independents and my record was a remarkable 28-5!!!!

Sounds like this is the blog you need to read if you want to know who's beating who in week #11!!!!

In order to continue keeping this blog "fresh" I decided to mix things up once again. This week's post will consist of my picks for these conferences in this order: SEC, Pac Ten, Mountain West, WAC, Independents, CUSA and Sun Belt.

In case you're saying to yourself, "Wha? Where are the picks for my favorite conference?"

Well, that's easy. My predictions for the ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten and MAC live in my previous post on this acclaimed blog.
