    Here Is the link. Join my group, Fans of Hornfans, in ESPN College Pick'em!

    The season starts Sept. 26. Last season we had 31 entries. Usually to get Top 5 you have to be good or lucky, or good and lucky. If you win it you go down in Hornfans history.
    1 entry per person so if you win it, it won't be astericked. Lol.
    2019 winner was SteveinAustin. 2018- Jklauslive

    Deadline is this Friday Sept 25.

    Mb227 -is your second pick a family member? Only 1 entry per person. Unless you need help like Nashhorn.
    (Just kidding Nash I know that’s your wife’s or (girlfriend)).

    Yes that’s my better have and last year was the first time I came out ahead of her (almost said beat her but new that would be a mistake.

    Just read on another message board Dean Blevins is reporting KSU isn't confident covid numbers will allow them to play OU this weekend. This type of thing will cause serious problems all season to say the least.
    The best solution might be to wait until Thursday or even Friday to pick the games to be included in a given week

    And some of it, like with Baylor, isn't even positive tests. It's these crazy tracing protocols.
    Worth noting the headwinds are less pervasive with teams who aggressively went right after things and should soon get less pervasive within conferences who did likewise. B1G games on the other hand...

    I didn't see the one entry rule until just now...the game let me create two so I created two. If you want, just use the first one for when I win this season...

    I got 36 points. Oklahoma and LSU were numbers 10 and nine respectfully, the only two I missed. Shocked, who knew?
    I am around 71%...21k

    Every year I promise myself I'm not going to overthink it. And every year I break my promise.

    You do know that you can move them around since it is a confidence points set-up, right?

    Now, that being said...I would have kept the land-thieves at 10 since I was sure they would win straight up. If we were a spread-based league, some of my moves would have been very different though...

    I haven’t checked but will be surprised if I did not end up negative.

    Yes I know that it is confidence based. That's why I had ok at number 10 and LSU at number 9. I've been doing this for 6or7 years and it's maybe only the second time I've lost at number 10,9 on the same day.
    They are supposed to be a sure thing, but not yesterday.

    Poms, I missed my 10 and 9 point games too (OU and TCU). I also missed on LSU and Army. Pitiful. But, as always, THIS will be my breakout, 55-point week! Stand by for a comeback...

    Okay. I couldn't tell you where they began in the list and I know that some weeks over the past few years, it seemed like I was the only one moving teams around.

    I didn't give much time to due diligence though when I did my entries. Hard to get focused on a contest without real money at stake LOL! Circa entries are where most of my football focus is going right now...

    I checked in this morning expecting to be in worse shape....was surprised to see my position.
    Lost what I viewed as a pickem at 1 pt w tcu/isu
    And ou which I intentionally put at 10 with the mindset that it was a small risk and they could lose, but if that happened I'd be a winner anyway and wouldn't care.
    Other loss was LSU which I fortunately moved to a lesser pt level Saturday morning thinking it would be just like pirate to start real strong with weeks to prepare for a rebooting lsu.
    A few of you did very well! Congrats.
    Its gonna be a weird one...
