WEEK ONE PREVIEW
So it begins. A new season, and a renewed enthusiasm. 128 Division I FBS football programs and 250+ PP6 participants stand undefeated. For some, dreams of a special year will begin to unravel shortly after week one’s kickoff. For others, the hope is real and will endure deep into the season. In the world of college football, championships are won with superior talent and a little luck. In the world of the Pigskin Pick Six, you’re going to need plenty of both. History has told us that skill plays a larger role than you might think. Year after year, some of the same names seem to find their way to the top of the standings. There is a famous quote from the movie Rounders:
Why do you think the same five guys make it to the final table of the World Series of Poker EVERY YEAR? What, are they the luckiest guys in Las Vegas?
It is a good line, but it isn’t entirely true, which is good news for those of us depending largely on lady luck. A few seats will be grabbed by the regulars, but there will be plenty of room at the table for the lucky. Kansas isn’t going to win a National Championship in football this year, but “Kansas” could win the Pigskin Pick Six. Trevor Bowman went from finishing 214th in 2013 to winning it all last year. It could be you this time around. Sit down. Ante up. The fun starts Thursday.
