I just watched my picks and I guessed a 7 and a 8... Missed 4 in the 10s... Dang it.

After 6 games, you had 21 possible points and still got 8. That's not really good. Though that's better than me, because you have 40 more PPR and only 7 points less than me.

I wish I had those games in lower confidence points with my low PCT, just like you did.

Yes I'm going with the slow and boring approach this year. :lol:

And the name of the game in con-points is always picking the low level upsets......one redeeming quality of them.

I'm glad that I've picked the wrong team 4 times, but the biggest point differential was 10 points... And not 43!

Akron 3 - Florida Atlantic 50 

Idk who picked Akron, mjp and Woody didn't but @Tour2ma sure did heh

My bad. I saw that Zombo had overtaken you and thought that it was because you had picked Akron. Now I realize you posted the scoreboard 2 bowls ago.

I don't know if there's a fast way to check it, but you are one of the few in the group who has picked them.

At this rate it's going to be a race for 1st and a race for 8th in the group.

I feel confident I will be last.

Now I see. I guessed 3 games, I'm not the only one to do so, but I thought pct ranked how many games you had guessed! I guess it tells how many points you have of the ones you played?

I'll let it go this time, but know this... I'd never lose a pick by 47 points.

As SMU showed... 41 is my limit.

Five games later, after the first quarter of the games...

MarkO takes the lead, Tour falls to 3rd and Browns149 starts getting some picks in. Last 3 don't have their picks in order so they only have played a maximum of 11 confidence points, and still have many Possible Points Remaining.

Half of the games through, I wonder why Tour isn't making an update...

MarkO leads and has enjoyed a great streak the last games, though jrb follows second with some points in the bucket.

Yes he has...not only dominating the pick em league but adding quite a bit to my gambling account as well the last few days, especially yesterday when I got them all right.    Off to a good start again today.

I thought about saying that you had guessed them all yesterday, but decided not to, because you'd already be so high on yourself by now... Guess I wasn't wrong, lol.

If someone had picked Kentucky in the game against North Western, he would be mad at the missed 2 pt attempt when down by 1 in the game finale.

Going into Monday and only 5 games left, you can do the math so who has the best picks left?

1 118 583 99.9
2 188 490 96.0
3 231 457 88.3
4 125 454 86.9
5 120 440 79.4
6 223 412 66.5
7 153 402 62

The answer is Mark O. If you do points+ PPR he has 701, and jrb and you are close but don't reach that number. And he is 93 points up, which equals to guessing around 3 games and him missing them, when he doesn't have to play the upsets now.

It really comes down to the potential upsets and who has the guts to pick them -or- just stay away and go safe. If Mark runs the table he is the winner obviously but it should get real interesting to see who ends up #1 both in the NCAA and of course more importantly here.

Oh and let's not forget Monday's games can Michigan make the BIG TEN go undefeated and can outgoing coach Scott Frost make UCF go 13-0 before heading to Nebraska as their new head coach? And then there's ND/LSU? 

So Clemson, OU, Georgia or Bama? Hmmmmmmmmm. And the answer is _____________ .  I hope you picked your tiebreaker questions!  ;)
