August 30, 2012
Did you wake up this morning with an extra spring in your step?
That's right, it's opening day and to celebrate the first day of the 2012 season, here is the first edition of PurpleMenace.com Pick 'Em.
Each week a panel of pickers will take a shot at predicting several of the week's top games. That panel will include the PM.com staff, a different PM.com subscriber and a special guest picker.
This week's guest picker is American Idol star and TCU '10 alumnus, Tim Halperin. After graduating with honors from the TCU Neeley School of Business, Halperin became one of the final 12 male singers in the 2011 edition of American Idol. Since his time in LA, Halperin has played with big named bands such as The Fray, Jason Derulo, All American Rejects, Lee Ann Womack and LeAnn Rimes. His debut album "Rise and Fall" reached No. 1 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart.
He will open for Blake Shelton Sept 6 outside the new Amon Carter Stadium. Click his name below for more information on his website, www.timhalperin.com.
Take your mind off the fact TCU doesn't play this weekend by scouting out these four season openers: NC State vs. Tennessee at the Georgia Dome, Boise State at Michigan State, SMU at Baylor and Alabama vs. Michigan at Cowboys Stadium.
Check out the picks and give yours on Hell's Half Acre.
