Hey everybody, it's bowl game time! We're not doing a full slate a picks but we are doing a bunch. We're going to do confidence picks for all the Big Ten games plus ten other games of "interest". Select the team you think will win (bold, highlight or whatever), then put a number next to that game about how confident you are. So, 1 next to your least confident and 18 to your most confident. If your selection is correct, you'll receive points equal to the confidence point value you associated with that game.

Make your picks before December 16th, the first game we have to pick. If you haven't gotten the picks in before then you can still pick games but please just leave games out that have already been started/played. Also, if you edit your post after the 16th, the games of that day and any played before will not count. Listen, we're all adults (I think) and so I don't expect this to be an issue but wanted to put it out there. This is for FUN. Don't screw it up. Ok...now to the fun portion!

Well...the Las Vegas bowl between Oregon and Boise State was really fun to watch but I think BadgerMJ and I both REALLY put ourselves behind the 8 ball so to speak. GE "only" had 4 points on the line and AntiG got it right winning 10 points. It's a good thing this is for fun and not for real money! But really...this is why I love bowl season. So much fun to watch and crazy things happen.

hahaha good thing for me that EVERYONE picked Toledo with a lot of confidence... I'm shocked how badly they got their asses kicked.

Yeah, I certainly didn't see that one coming. This is partly why we love bowl season. Things never go the way you expect. Go team chaos!

No problem. Its lots of fun and something I really enjoy, even though I'm not great at it. I suspect y'all feel the same way. I'm sure we'll do it again next year.
Thanks for running this. Really enjoyed it and will try to be a bit more active with an extra game of my own on here next year (do a survival or stupid upset pick game probably).
