I didn't even look at half the games I was picking. I just clicked some teams and drug some of the games up and down at random.

Sadly, it's probably as good an approach as any.

I decided to play too. I think College Sports are some of the most random contests ever- you either have to know with a Booky's accuracy or be supremely lucky to win these things...

this is my alibi for ending up last.

I know we are all excited for the big New Orleans bowl, Florida Atlantic vs. Memphis. Kidding.

I am looking forward to a few games, LSU vs Ohio State obviously and the other Bigten vs SEC games. Also Hawaii vs Georgia should be fun.

I was happy to see that Cincinati beat Southern Miss tonight since I had that as my 30-point game. Of course when I went and checked my list, I realized that while I had moved the game to the 30 spot a few days ago (because Cincy was heavily favored), I had forgotten to switch my pick to them after having picked Southern Miss when I, almost randomly, picked teams when I first signed up. So now I'm out 30 pts. and have no chance to win.

Also, I realize that nobody really cares about this, but I felt like posting it anyway.

I didn't even bother to change my point rankings, cause it defaulted to more points for "better" teams, which are the teams I've actually heard of and might possibly know something about anyway. Hmm..might not have been the best strategy since I'm 4 for 5 right now and have virtually no points.

Yep, tied for most correct picks and in 9th place.

But in this case, the reason you have so few points is simply because they started with the first bowl being played as the 1 point game and worked their way up. It will all equal out in the end, as you will be getting more and more points for correct picks. Someone who put their 30 point game as the BC-Mich St. game benefitted greatly now, but now his 30 point game is already accounted for.

The only number that matters right now is max possible points.

I definately wouldn't call it being in great shape.

Are you also a fan of any team named the Bears by any chance? (this might not make sense if you have other tag lines...)
