    I was thinking of having a running tiebreaker with Iowa State picks.

    every week along with your pick, you pick the score and winner of the Iowa State game. The person closest at the end of the year wins the tiebreaker if there is one (usually there is).

    winner gets priority, then closest score is next.

    I'm superstitious - I can't stand betting against ISU. :D

    I like adding an Iowa State dimension, but think it is probably better to just wait and settle the tie-breaker by making the remaining players pick the score along with their picks if there is a risk of the game ending that week with a tie-breaker.

    Another version of this game that could focus on Iowa State would be relate only to the Iowa State game. You stay in the game as long as you pick correctly against the spread.

    I'm not saying that everyone who picks the same team is a copycat. But there is plenty of evidence of the copycat phenomenon. See KC's post above. I could go through last year's games and show several places where a team is not picked by anyone, then one person picks them, and soon another will. Not saying it is a bad strategy, just interesting.

    Now that we have had our first LSU pick, expect another soon.

    That could be a fun twist.

    I picked Rutgers, because I'm guessing they lose to Iowa in week 2. (Can only pick undefeated teams.) Which is why I would most likely pick Iowa for week 2 ;)
