DTH Picks of the Week

The DTH SportSaturday staff and one celebrity/personality pick the winners of the biggest college football games each week.

With the Pirates of East Carolina on the horizon, the land lovers at the DTH have their eye patches on and their bottles of rum in hand (yo-ho-ho!) as they plunder this week's slate.

Leading the fleet is Owen "Hook" Hassell, whose picks have been pirate's gold thus far.

In hot pursuit with cannons booming are Kelly "Wench" Lusk, Brad "Shiver Me" Broders and Ian "Scurvy" Gordon, who's actually feeling quite well. With them is SportSaturday captain James "Blackbeard" Giza, sporting some facial hair after another long week aboard the DTH ship.

Swabbing the deck are Jamie "Peg Leg" Agin and Rachel "Polly Wanna" Carter, who'll be spending her Saturday night alone with Captain Morgan if she can't climb up the mast and out of last place.

Stowing away for the week is former UNC running back Kelvin Bryant. He's shown he can handle a Pirate attack in the past, but if he can't keep up this week, he'll find himself walking the plank. Arrrrrgh!
