    With football season almost upon us, it is time for me to come out of hibernation and get the 2014 Picks Panel going. Here are the rules:

    1. The 2014 Picks Panel shall consist of ten members.

    2. There shall be SIXTEEN WEEKS to the competition, all fourteen weeks of the regular season PLUS conference championship week PLUS the final “week” consisting of the bowl games.

    3. There will be exactly TEN games picked each week, consisting primarily of SEC games. In the event that there are more than 10 games involving SEC teams on a given week, the games with the most lopsided spreads will be eliminated to reduce the number to 10. If there are less than ten games involving SEC teams in a given week, then games involving two teams from the AP Top 25 will be added, then games involving one team if needed to bring the number up to ten.

    4. All games will be picked against the spread. For purposes of the competition, spreads used for the games will be “locked” two days before the first game of the week.

    5. Panelists will receive one point for each correct pick, no points for an incorrect pick. In addition, each Panelist must designate AT LEAST one pick as a “top pick”, although Panelists may designate as many “top picks” as they like. For each Top Pick that is correct, two points will be earned. If a Top Pick is wrong, TWO POINTS WILL BE DEDUCTED. So choose wisely…

    6. Picks are due the day before the first game of the week, and are to be posted in the weekly Picks Panel thread

    Here are the returning Panelists:

    scamgtr (2013 Winner)
    RealtyGator (2012 Winner)
    Wormwood56
    atlantagator86
    dadx4
    ThePlayer

    There is room for FOUR more Panelists. If you would like to participate this year, comment on this thread. If more than four people have expressed interest by Sunday 8/24 10pm ET, then I will randomly choose who will fill the four spots.

    I am in....Can we do a "lotto" pick that pays say 50-1 if we take a 30pnt underdog to win outright?

    I'm cocked, locked and ready to rock
    Rough, tough and hard to bluff
    I interface from a database
    and my database is in hyperspace
    I can give you a gigabyte in a nanosecond
    I'm interactive, hyperactive and radioactive
    Behind the eight ball but ahead of the curve
    I'm tireless and I'm wireless
    An alpha male on beta blockers
    Up front, down home and old school
    I'm a high tech low life
    A cutting edge state-of-the-art bicoastal multi-tasker.
