Well I guess I finally got a tough line up for picks with several upsets. Three of you had 13 correct which is low for the season. Micara Baker, Nate Knakmuhs, and Josh Kottke each had 13 right, but Knakmuhs was the closest on the tie breaker. Well Kudos to the Gophers -- those Big Ten wins are hard to come by especially on the road. How about that Jerry Kill -- he drove 5 or six hours to support his team, after taking some time off. I hope things will continue to improve for Kill, he is a really dedicated coach. It would be great to meet him. The Vikes will be in the nationwide spotlight tonight (Monday Night Football). They are playing a team with a worse record, so lets hope they can get it together. I can't believe there are only two more weeks left to pick!
