that is nice bonus change
So far we've had 1039 people enter the Pick Six contest. We still have time to get a few more entries though. Tell your friends/neighbors/co-workers to make their picks by Wednesday.
Football starts on Thursday so there are two days left to enter the contest.
Remember you have to go to
in order to enter. Posting your picks in the original thread or this one does not count as a valid entry.

Minor note: former Ohio State player released. From the Chicago Tribune:
Defensive end Vernon Gholston, a reclamation project, was waived.
Obviously, he was a bust, going to the Jets 6th in the first round of the NFL draft merely a few years ago. Wonder if he got any free tats.

Don't get too much free material from scout, so enjoy:
Back by popular demand, or maybe entirely despite it, I return for my third year providing your weekly primer in what not to watch. Last year, no team pulled off the shutout, but 12 teams had 2 or fewer wins. Welcome to the list, Memphis. Elsewhere, New Mexico managed to go 1-11 and not finish last in their conference. The mighty MAC had no less than 4 teams with two wins or less. So without further ado, let's get into it.
