I have said on many times in recent years I think this forum is heading in the wrong direction. It seems that the forum is this in a nutshell.............

1) Guys giving picks
2) Trolls
3) Haters showing up after one loses a game
4) No real college football insight
5) Arguments
6) Pure ignorance
7) Immaturity
8) C_ock measuring contests
9)  Internet bullies
10) Lack of direction and gambling knowledge

Well.... I say we get away from those 10 things I just mentioned


This is what im proposing we do..... ESPN forms a college football panel of experts. Let's form our own College football panel.


How many people should be on it? 5? 10?

Each week for the rest of the season the " expert panel " will list there 5 best plays and talk among each other in that thread for the benefit of the forum. Each panel member will discuss all the games with each other. This will basically give the forum some notes on what games they think will help them.

I think it's time we do something a little productive around here instead of the same old garbage.


I will head the panel and start the threads each week. I will go ahead and nominate a few members that I think will absolutely bring solid college football knowledge to this panel.


Train  ( of course )

Bookie ( IMO, a great college football mind )

Jimmy  ( If he has time, I know he stays busy )




Go ahead and nominate anyone you think that will be a great asset. Anyone and everyone is optional, I'm open to any nominations. After I think we have a good idea of who will be on the panel, I will start the new thread each week.






( I will list my 5 best plays after we form the panel )

I think DoubleUP4LIFE is one of the more insightful posters week to week.  Doesn't get into any BS either.  Definitely an opinion I like to read.

All for the idea, it'll work, may take some time, difficult to keep out trolls and meaningless comments IMO, but all for the picture you're painting

also I'd nominate Mac and White-Mice

I would like to nominate MegaLocks.  I love reading his threads and although I usually just post my picks, I go through game by game just like him.

Very interesting and thank you for your efforts in this project. My sentiments are the haters and trolls will destroy the thread unless there is a way you can moderate it yourselves. I also think you will get an endless number of posts of what do you think of this game, or this parlay, that will be interrupting the discussion taking place.

To ya Boom_Boom!

Someone who "really" knows how to handicap is not going to share what he has learned on a public forum.  It has simply taken too many years and involved far too much effort to simply give away the "Keys To The Kingdom".   There may be a few who know precisely what I'm talking about.  Those who don't will be scratching their heads for a long, long time.  Yeah, it's puzzling.  Yeah, it's a riddle and yeah, it can be solved.  Good luck.

Also, I dont know if we can swing it, but it would be nice to have a covers lineman as one of the member to ensure the thread is viewed daily and trolls are dealt with swiftly.
