As we start a new season, we at ThisWeekSPORTS.com have decided on a new way to deliver our football predictions. Each person on the staff will have a say, not just Sports Editor Lee Cochran, as we will pick the winners of 15 games each week.

In addition, we have enlisted the services of Beau Bishop, sports anchor at 10TV, who reminds you to turn to First and 10 each Friday night for highlights from the top games in central Ohio.

Joining Bishop and Cochran on selection Wednesdays will be the rest of the ThisWeekSPORTS.com staff includes web producer Don Delco and writers Paul Batterson, Aaron Blankenship, Frank DiRenna, Patrick Dolan, Brad Emerine, Scott Hennen, Dave Purpura, Andy Resnik and Jarrod Ulrey.

Take note that these predictions are for fun and intended to incite conversation, not confrontation. With that in mind, let's proceed to Week 1 games.

Enjoy.
