    I haven't paid attention.... Even tonight watched some of the first half, and then just tuned back in. Zowie. "Falling apart at the seams" is right.

    For the record. I did try to switch up the Michigan/Florida St Orange Bowl when I heard Michigan's D- star was hurt. College (especially Bowls) depend so much on emotion.

    But it was too close to game time. :bluduh

    I know, no matter what I can't get past Berger.... If any of the four above me pick correctly I'm sunk.

    I'm going mildly contrarian and picking Clemson. Alabama looked really tough, but Clemson impressed me against La Di Da Ohio State.

    The Clemson pick vaulted me into second, I was too far back to catch Berger.

    Congratulations. bergermeister well done

    Thanks gents. My early run saved me from your late runs. Jurgen and I actually tied for correct picks. Confidence points...

    If all of the SEC teams that I had picked would have won, I'd have smoked you guys. Who knew the SEC would fare so badly in the bowl season?:dutch

    Well done bergermeister! If I only had a few hundred more points, I would have been right there with you :D


    At least Florida won big in Tampa this year, unlike our conference mate.....

    Congrats to bergermeister for taking it all and Jurgen for jumping me at the last second.

    My early picks were really bad but since I didn't know much about those teams I gave them low confidence points and weighted the bigger bowls much higher.

    Didn't realize there were points on the table for the championship game, had I'd known I'd have put all 40 on Clemson over Bama. Not a cerebral pick, purely emotional but as Clemson grad I couldn't be happier.

    Good job man! I'll get my picks done next year. I missed two or three games.
