Let's play for fun- I don't have too many cigars with me at this point, but would like to play and make the games more interesting!

Holy cow, that's a lot of games. I didn't realize.


I also didn't realize Hugh was low. Wish I'd thought about it before the last herf. :)

I decided not to bring too many with me- probably just as well as I have been unable to smoke too many. Need to find somewhere here to have my daily after lunch smoke! I'll let you know if I need some! ;)

Reminder for all to set picks, because you can't brag about how bad you beat me if you don't set them ... and at my age I am starting to need all the help I can to remember to set my picks also.

I'm going to have a difficult time being interested in the Potato Bowl, much less the Camellia Bowl or Heart of Texas Bowl, even with this challenge.

Anyone want a side wager of a decent 5er?

Cereal Bowl is my fav!

Higher point total at the end? I'm in. Anyone else want to join the fun?

Sounds good. 5er buy-in for those that want to play, winner take all.

oh, jeez......I COMPLETELY missed the 'confidence' part of the entry....my confidence numbers are going from 1 to whatever....I sure hope I picked good January winners

jhedrick83

Good luck guys! Dave, it looks like it's just you and me on the wager. If you want to back out since you didn't notice the confidence points, I won't hold it against you.

dave

Absolutely not, Jesse. We shook on it.

Besides....when else would I ever get an opportunity to root so hard for Arkansas State?

LOL I didn't even know there WAS an Arkansas State :D

Just found that we can still change the confidence position of our picks. Figured I'd best move any Big 10 teams that I thought might win down to the lowest confidence end...lol Much as I love the Big 10...and I usually pick them, we don't fare all too well at this time of year

Crap! See I actually did realize you had to rank them, but I was backward in my thinking apparently in ranking! I thought you ranked them in confidence, meaning 1 was the most confident and 39 was the least confident....Didn't realize thats how many points you would get for each pick!!!

I would have had 183 points by now!

I switched two games and forgot to "save" my switches. Damn. I think we all need to read the instructions more carefully.......

Damn you Notre Dame.....that was my 2nd most confident game....

My heart was with the Irish, but my head said LSU. Oh, well......

Forgot to check in on this and looks like I had a bad run there for a few days. Notre Dame had to throw the wrench in my picks yesterday. Looking forward to the next two days of games, should be some great football watching!

Maybe I'm reading it wrong....but if you picked Championship winner correctly....but I don't...you would win....no?



Of course, nobody can catch Hotreds. Nice game, Hugh!!

True. We'll see how it plays out.

Congrats, Hugh!

That was fun....Haven't done one of those in awhile. Maybe I'll actually fill out a March Madness bracket this year! Congrats Hugh!

Congrats! Now you owe me an addy. :D

PM incoming.

I changed my pick on the last game a few times. Finally picked OSU about 15 minutes before the game. Looks like it wouldn't have mattered to our wager, but it makes me feel good.

Thanks for the game, guys

Don't they still have a couple of meaningless 'All Star' type college bowl games to go? Why would any player whose theoretical next stop is the NFL, take a chance of screwing that up by participating in one of those and getting hurt before the Combine?

dave

Only one that I'm aware of is the 'Senior Bowl'....and I thought that was just for the kids that didn't expect to play again after this January....the ones that are going to find out just how useful 3/4 of a degree in Agricultural Journalism is.

Yesterday I received a VERY nice 6-piece sampler from jhedrick83 that was anchored by an Anejo that was flanked by a bunch of other GREAT cigars. Thank you, Jesse.
