Porch Picks: Week 1

It’s time for some SEC football! Chris hasn’t been this excited since the last time mom cooked Chicken and Dumplings… that’s pretty dang excited. This year, Front Porch Football will have four “pickers” pick 20 college football games every single week. Three will be permanent (Chris and Brendan, Co-Founders of Front Porch Football, and Michael Pavy, SEC and Gamecock super-fan and avid Front Porch Football contributor). The fourth will be a guest picker. The guest picker will be determined based on two factors – how much they contribute to Front Porch Football (like, share, and comment on posts) and the interest they express in picking games. This week’s guest picker is Wofford Third Baseman, Max “Paco” “Caesar” McDougald. Max is a big time South Carolina fan, and he hails from Anderson, SC.
This year, we will track each picker’s record throughout the season. As always, comment with who you think will win, and congratulations on making it through another long offseason.
