    No brag for that. Shoulda had an A. My 4.0 is rurnt, gone down the crapper forever. :cry

    I'm bragging that I'm 7/7 in the pick 'em, bitches, and can still beat all you codgers! :) Overheard in the grocery store yesterday: "Notre Dame by 14." I wanted to tell the guy he was smoking some fat drugs, but I didn't want my sub to get soggy during the ensuing debate.

    And, how many confidence points do you have? Oh, wait, you screwed them up, so they don't count? :1drink

    .....clearly means different thing to different people. :deal. I can't figure out how the order of the games equals the confidence points to some of y'all. Can someone 'splain that to me?

    The games you are most "confident" that you picked correctly move up towards the top. The toss up games move down to the bottom.

    Say you are absolutely 100% positive that Alabama will beat Notre Dame, no other game are you more sure about. Move it to the top. It will score maximum points. (35)

    Now say you don't have a clue about... Arkansas St vs Kent St. For you it is a complete coin toss. Move it down in your confidence points.

    Your most "confident" game-- if you picked correctly scores 35. (no spread) Your next most "confident" gets 34 and so on down to one.

    I've already picked up my "1" point with the Beef O'Brady's Bowl. Looks like I'll get my "2" if Baylor continues to beat UCLA in the Holiday. I lost my "30" as I was very sure that Fresno State would handle SMU. They didn't.

    Most points at the end wins. As you can see, sweeping 35-30 does more for you than sweeping the bottom 15.

    Hope this helps a bit.

    Oh I know how what they mean but I think at least three pickets' confidence points follows the order of the games. They appear, at least at this point, to have given the first bowl game of this season, the least amount of points, the next game, the second least amount of points, etc. That doesn't make sense to me.

    We should pony up money next year. :lol3

    Interesting-- at this point -- I just looked at a couple of the top scorers (overall, not ADVgroup) Looks like they didn't use confidence points. Have the original order, just have done pretty well at picking 13/14 or so. :lol3

    All I know is, I was more confident than I should have been. Not confident when I should have been. It's schizo!

    OK, I am on board. Kiffin sucks donkey kong droppings. That pissant could not beat G Tech with his NFL team? What a douche! To coin a popular poster.
