    I never figured out how to decipher beyond the weekly to see the overall on that deal.
    Good day yesterday btw for you there on our pick 'em.
    I'll never regret riding ohio st for big points...willingly give those up, too, to see them lose....as would have been the case with the 10 on Bama.
    Man..the Tigers really blew the end of regulation there.
    Hopefully UGA will take em out (likely) and the CFP committee will let "it" go.

    Damn...it's Wednesday, which means the information overload phase of the week is setting in. If even part of what I am hearing comes to pass, fasten the seatbelts...it could be bumpy as we get through Championship weekend...

    That crazy, MB....because I'm already looking at this weekend's slate as a wild one...pitfalls all around. May be best to put names in hat on some of these..My family's closest friends like to take to praying then flipping a coin for major life decisions when having a hard time deciding. I may take a peek here in the seat cushion and see if I cant find a quarter or something....

    :brickwall:How did 70,000 Mormons get to Las Vegas?
    I think I blew this pick!
    Did Oregon beat Ohio State in Columbus or did I dream that??

    I dont know Creek..Looks like Utah and Rising want to make sure it doesn't get too out of hand....

    Edit: nevermind....Looks like their margin of error in this one is plenty

    A dangerous day for picking, fellas (and ladies)
    So many variables and factors in play these latter weeks...seems more so than ever this year.
    All the best...

    Congratulations to -RainH2burntO our 2021 ESPN Season Champion!!

    With a score in the Top 2% of the USA. He got the lead in week 3 or 4 and held it. It is very hard to stay on top as long as he did.
    It was a big lead over myself and the rest of the group. But a great fight for Bronze with Hornswaggler coming in from nowhere with the Alabama pick....Thanks to all who played.

    GOLD: RainH2burntO:e-hookem:
    SILVER: Creek
    BRONZE: Hornswaggler

    Let the bowl betting commence...

    Yes, seriously...I drive out to Vegas in a few weeks...gives me lots of the minor bowls to work with plus evaluating numbers for the larger games. Problem with betting them ahead of time is that so many wait to announce they will sit out plus the key players that inevitably get suspended due to conduct...

    Thanks guys.
    What?..Speech?? No..no...really...
    OK..
    Look...winning is hard...he he he..
    I placed second to Badass last season and vowed to move up one spot.
    Guess Brian Tracy was right about goal-setting. Now, just imagine if I had written it on paper...I could have..maybe..got all the way up to #0!
    In all seriousness..it is intimidating playing with so many great pickers.. You all are awesome.
    I thought the last few weeks were really tough.
    I saved my worst for last.
    Lowest weekly point total and absolutely the worst single pick..putting SDSU at 9 line. (A last minute move)
    Note to self...When you've already been burned by a team once..when a team is barely winning close games..when a team is ranked because they play in a weak conference and can actually play defense ...but have no offense...and are playing a potent offensive team...while missing 20 players to covid...don't put them on the 9 line. Even my 10yr old got that one right.
    Yesterday was a bloodbath.
    You guys (and gals) are fun, sharp, smart, clever, interesting, and formidable opponents. Congrats especially to the 2-4 spots..(Creek, Hornswaggler, IDE) all great playing.
    On to bowl madness or whatever...
    :hookem:
