    One more thought for first time players. The number assigned is the points you get if you are right. No point spread, just pick winners.
    I messed this up my first year. 41 is your most confident pick, not 1 !

    I'm with you, Catholic! I have no idea what I was doing either.

    I think it'll be Bama and Boomer ... and Bama will win it ... most of those others ... even OURS ... IDK. Flipped a coin. We'll see.

    This is my first ever fantasy experience ... so y'all make it a good un! :p

    Welcome aboard ShAArk ! Remember you can change your picks and your confidence points until a game kicks off. So if you get some good info, injuries maybe, use it to your advantage. Good Luck. The games seem very tough to pick this year, I agree!

    Wile I agree with you ShAArk on the potential paring, I see this as a reply of the Texas/Alabama NCG. Unfortunately for us, if the Special Snowflake doesn't get knocked out of the game and Anderson's legal issues do not interfere with his playing (http://www.sportingnews.com/ncaa-fo...-rose-bowl-georgia/11sf48coxqftb1xaeroh7ve1gz) ou will run Alabama out of the building just like Texas was on their way to doing. Nick's defenses feature big D linemen and fast LB's. ou's O line can manage the linemen and their backs and receivers are just as fast or faster than the LB's.

    Perhaps ... but oU has the same problem as Texas ... winning attitude. Choklahoma isn't just a verb. I know Stoops is gone, but it's still Stoops' team.

    we have a couple big D linemen ... fast LBs too. That works. oU won't be able to stop Bama and Bama will get a stop/two done when it counts. After all, they have a punter as capable as Dickson.

    Ok, I'm in. I let the ladies make half the picks so I can't be held accountable if my picks suck. There were lots of pretty colors comments......

    I found it after I did the search. I did not pick the confidence choice but fixed that after quite an effort. So I am now Repmac7. This is quite a challenge. Which teams are going with a chip on their shoulder and which ones are going for the vacation? Enjoying the food and other events. I see a lot of games where a lack of focusness could cause a big upset.

    Three things happen to a pass. 1. get slapped 2. gain a reputation. 3. might be worth 1 and 2.

    You are in great shape ShAARk. You have the most PPR (possible points remaining). You can win if you hit those PPRs!

    Oregon killed me. They sucked so bad. I blew 35 points on em

    It mostly just means you assigned fewer confidence points to the already-played games than anyone else did.

    1st place and 2nd place with completely different selections. First time to play this and may be beginners luck. Might not last but will enjoy for now. Repmac7.

    I picked SMU but with one of the least points assigned, I am now rooting for La Tech.
    Badass going with the dawgs, like when I took Middle.....power move.

    lot of folks laying in the weeds. 8-15 have some serious PPRs

    I have some Hay in the barn, but that is some serious PPRs laying in the weeds

    It will be fun to watch unfold. :popcorn:

    I'm a n idiot. I thought I was gonna get a lot of points for the FAU win, but only got 1. I thought they were my most confident pick. :brickwall:

    Thats when I realized I have all my picks reversed. I'm gonna free fall like Aggy recruiting or I'm gonna shock the universe if I get the playoff games correct.
