WOW! A perfect 8 for 8 and in 7th place that's hard to do.......but it's early yet and Cal has all of his big points available, I still have 9 of 10.

Just getting interesting!!  ;)

It sure looks pretty - nine wins in a row. 1 through 9 points. LOL The upsets ya pick wrong with big points is what crashes you, though. Bowl Mania is the only way I pay attention to any bowl games at all - except for Ohio State, maybe the National Championship, depending on the match-up.

So when do the real upsets begin? Probably before the Dec. 29 games get here.

I think the real upsets are about to start soon......and this is only my second year ever with con points but I think I'm getting the feel of it.

I was always a pointspread guy, W/L is so easy......right?  :lol:

In the 4 pm game I picked BYU and 31 but might be better off if they lose. I can live with that.  :)

Cal now a perfect 12 for 12 amazing......and a big payday if you bet a 12 teamer. (but this was w/l and not spread, still a nice run)

not quite - #11 doesn't play til Dec 26th. But I like 11 wins, no losses so far.

I'd brag about it, but it's too easy to get your rear kicked eventually. LOL

My big upset pick with Louisiana Tech over Hawaii may be a big mistake, 75% pick Hawaii.

We'll see how it goes. LOL

You're right, the con points got me 12 is #11. The con points strategy really is kicking in now.

dammit dammit dammit.

I had picked Wake Forest as a huge upset.

so, what do I do?

 I get antsy, started thinking that only 15% picked Wake Forest, so I changed it to Memphis.

DAMMIT.

LOL LOL.

Lost my first game.

LOL !

12-1, still in sixth place.

lol.

dammit.

Well it looks like Memphis, Buffalo and my Rainbow Warriors screwed ALMOST everybody fairly equally so with 15 games in and the big 26 games left it is getting tighter.

The big thing now is points still available, good luck!  ;)

Going into the Thursday 12/27 games things have sure tightened up.......and I got hosed by Cal in a wierd OT game with 9 INTs and only 2 TDs.

But a lot of con points still on the board.

Note to self:

NEVER pick Vanderbuilt again, and West Virginia?

three or four players wouldn't play? as in, the QB? two wr's?

Left tackle?

and the backup qb is a  doofus?

egad. Wish I had known about that.

dammit.

lol.

Yeah, I was on the WV bandwagon too, I thought they had a great season.

I wasn't following closely either, had no idea Wil Grier was sitting.

I'm a contender lol....1st time ever. I had doubts about Clemson vs ND but glad I didn't change that pick. 

Today's the big day...lots of points out there for guys behind me. So far so good on my big-confidence points games. I hope I don't "Derrick Anderception" down the stretch😲

I've been losing games I picked wrongly, and now moved into 5th place.

First place seems so far away. LOL

I think next year I am going to flip a coin on every game.

GEORGIA???

I wonder how much of it relates to star players not playing to get ready for the draft.

that, and if they partied before they played the game.

Georgia. what the...

dammit.

lol

Cal, Georgia was full of themselves. I had a feeling (a 5 point feeling lol) that they'd lose.

They believed they belonged in the CFB playoff with 2 losses. So did Paul Finebaum, Todd Blackledge, Tim Brando....you know, the SEC rah rah guys...

Well, the best 3 teams they played all season kicked their @$$. 

Go away Bulldogs, just go away. You got totally stomped by a 4 loss Texas team.

Well coming down to the last game and nothing is decided yet.

Mathematically anyone in the top 4 can still win this thing, the best #5 can do is 2nd place, so any regrets on a game or two missed out on now? :lol:

It's been fun!
