Before we begin, it must be said that Our Fearless Leader, Mark Seymour, was under the weather last night and we decided to press forward with the podcast without him. Mr. Theodore Video, AKA tedvid, AKA Ted Harrison, graciously agreed to join us on the show to talk a little College Football Playoff Rankings (okay, a lot), some Kansas Preview, some Picks of the Week and more.
Selection Committee Ranking Talk
Yeah, we talk about it. How could we not? We talk quite a long time about it, and some various perspectives about it. I should add more to this post about what we said, but that'd be delaying this post even longer, and we really don't want that.
The Kansas Preview!
Kansas isn't good. They're pretty bad. But they're not as bad as they were. The real question is what this team does. If you want to know my take, you need not look further than the title of this podcast.
Picks of the Weeeeeeeeeeek
I would be absolutely remiss if I didn't point out my record last week. Look at it. It's magnificent. Too bad it doesn't help me more than making me second-to-last among active pickers. I'm not even above .500. That's a shame. But hey, at least it's an interesting race, right?

Very interesting week. Conner let any thought of growing a lead slip away by making some odd choices, while Fankhauser tied with Pagitt and I for best record of the week at 5-1. Ted and Pras had decent to solid weeks also, giving them shares of the top spot alongside Fank and Conner. Here are this week's picks.

One Last Thing
We're talking about who you should be rooting for in the Big 12 for the rest of the season, but only briefly. Who do YOU think you should be rooting for? Does it match who we say?
