MY OFFICIAL PICKS
St. Frances (I want to take Central so badly.... but... Pinkos has them as a huge underdog)
St. Thomas Aquinas
Thanks to @nolebull813 for stepping up to help run this.
I am going to go with most of the games NoleBull suggested except two. While I like the Rockledge/Ware County game, I feel like I can go better there. I don't want to overpopulate the pick' ems with the out-of-state teams and I think two is enough with the Miami Central and Aquinas games already. Also, I don't think Godby/Lincoln is going to be as good as looks on paper. Looks can be deceiving sometimes... maybe I am wrong.
