Crowd Sourcing the 2013 season, week 1

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

2013 is year three of the crowd sourcing and the first year on the front page. Will this make a difference? Or will the crowd have the same accuracy as the previous 2 years?

With about a month to go until the 2013 CFB season begins, the top ten picks by futures in Vegas are 'bama, OH-State, the Ducks, Georgia, a']['m, LSU, Florida, USCe, Stanford, L-ville. Is it accurate? Can you figure out who is going to win before the season begins and you know how the teams are going to play? Should you even devise a system to pick the winners every week?

Should you trust this BillC gent that likes Oregon but gives OR-State gifts? Football Study Hall & Football Outsiders along with CFB Stats are the better places to obtain information on the games, teams and players; since Vegas only wants your money.

For those of you unfamiliar with this, there are 4 polls (Sunday P.M. publishing) and you get to select the games that you think the Cats will win or lose. There is one poll for the 3 non-conference games and 3 polls for conference games. You are encouraged to attempt to sway others to your belief about the games in the comments section. The polls will not close until the middle of August, so remember to vote early and vote comment often or you can follow the Tammany Hall maxim of 'claim everything, concede nothing and if defeated allege fraud.'
