I used to be pretty good at this - especially as the season went along, having a better handle on how good teams are.  These days, though, the slates are often pretty obscure games with teams that tend to fall off my radar.  I'm not complaining, just making an observation.  I don't have time to research, so the picks come on gut.  Honestly, I think anyone who finishes above .500 is doing a wonderful job.

I know that you're not complaining, but, honestly, I enjoy the variety provided in weeks when our pickers dip into the more obscure leagues or find closely-matched bottom dwellers here or there. It gets a little boring when you keep seeing the same WIAC, CCIW, NESCAC, and UAA powers over and over again in the pick'ems.

By the way Greg, you did win the Scheduler of the Week award for the slate from Week #3. The won-loss record was 58-72 for a winning percentage of  only 44.61%.
