    Funny but I put the most points on ULL which hasn’t played their bowl yet. I could still lose. LSU, Clemson, Bama, Minnesota, UNC and Texas helped me the most. :idk:

    Hey, I'm in 3rd place for the moment! I've never been ranked this high. :smokin:. Guess I should smoke it while the smokin' is good.

    Haha-if they win you’ll launch into first, if not you’ll tumble like a stone.

    Woo hoo, I'm now in second place!! Ive got a fair amount of points on Tennessee in this game and they have me worried. I feel pretty good about my other two picks before the Natty. Come on Vols. Don't let me down!

    I was not confident on this game. Lots of points left for the next games.

    How can my percentage go down after a win? Can not find how the percentage is calculated in the rules.

    It's your total points vs the country at a given time. If you burned points early, and you didn't put enough points on the winner vs the country, Youll go down in pct. points. Kinda of like in our group -if you put a 20 on team and win but everyone else has the winner Slotted in the 30's you will drop.

    Thanks a bunch. I could not get a relationship to the points vs %. This could finish interesting.

    So would that be considered the percentile rank? If you are 80 then you are in the top 80%?

    I put a lot on Tennessee, Cincinnati and the most points possible on ULL. Go Rajun Cajuns! I know they run the ball well and Billy Napier is a really good offensive coach. I think LSU takes it all a week from Monday. I’ll watch that game, probably not the ULL bowel game in Mobile,AL.

    I have similar picks, however I'm most curious about the So Miss v Tulane game. I'm a big fan of how teams end the season and Tulane mostly sucked however it seems like nobody is giving So Miss a chance.

    They played similar level of difficulty schedules, both are mediocre teams. Both have decent offenses, but not very good defenses however the defensive strength of each team seems matches the offensive strength of the opponent.

    Most prognosticators have Tulane not only winning the game, but covering the 7 point spread, but I don't see how a team who has lost 5 of their final 6 games can suddenly turn it around especially when the two teams seem to be so evenly matched.

    Are you trying to get me to change my pick? I won't be intimidated by logic.

    Lol, no sir-ree-bob. Just trying to win something for once in my life. This game has me baffled and I've waffled back and forth for a week now. Oh well, I'll just have to pick one and run with it.

    The percentile is only really relevant after all the games are over because of how you have used points. But currently you are in the top 3% in the nation.
    Although, you would have this thing won for sure if you didn't put so many points on UTah lol.

    Yeah, I pooped the bed on that prediction. I mean how does a team perform so poorly the last 7 games of the year and the do that?

    I also had a gut feeling that aggy would win but picked OSU anyway out of.....well... I never pick aggy. I'm pretty sure I could get all of the last picks right and still drop to 3rd or 4th because I just dont have enough points left to score. But hey, it's fun being first even if only for a day. :hookem:

    All I need is to get the last three games correct to finish at least third. The Tulane game has me worried. Jut have to go with the gut and see what happens.
    Finishing third would be like winning to me.

    So all the marbles are on the table in the championship game. Pick right I win, pick wrong and it all depends on who y'all pick. If only I had picked Texas to win...ugh!

    Well, good luck fellas and may the best prognosticator win!!

    Only two people can move you out of first and you have third no matter what. It should be fun. Good luck getting second or third. :lol:

    I know how bad you want first. Good luck. I am happy finishing this high.

    Lol, it would be good to win but my life isn't over if I don't. I'd be happy with 3rd but winning is always more fun.

    I forget, do we have a burnt orange yeti cup on the line for this?
