    Experts Pick'em: Ideas wanted

    Fanatics ---

    I just sent out our week one games for this year's CycloneFanatic.com Expert's Pick'em.

    I want to involve you Fanatics more this year. What I want to do is hold some sort of a competition every Monday to decide what fanatic gets to be the guest picker for the week to go head to head with the "experts."

    Any ideas?

    I would pay 20,000,000 credits to be a picker.


    In all seriousness this could be really cool.

    I like the credit idea too, but maybe pick a post of the week. Doesn't have to be a real complex process, just you or another mod pick out a post from the last week you found to be particularly insightful, funny, relevant, etc.

    I think you should just pick the guy that was the football columnist for the Iowa State Daily for the 2004 season. I always thought that dude was pretty awesome...

    Posts of the week are good for people like me who don't live in the area. My idea is Fanatics posting pictures of themselves at CF sponsors.

    Your old pal Kasey should be a guest picker....I hear he predicted the Hawks 11-2 finish last year....maybe you should throw him a bone.
