If you've been avoiding this place all week, and my constant tweeting, we're hosting a college football pick 'em here at TNB. If you're a somewhat compulsive gambler, or even just a college football fan, this game is for you. And we've got prizes!
We'll be dishing out gift certificates to the weekly winners and a much bigger gift certificate to the overall winner to GameDay Depot, where you can use your hard-earned cash towards team memoribilia! And quite frankly, with the amount of participants we have right now, you're almost guaranteed to win something at some point.
