Hey guys, I created a league for Bowl Pick'em. We had fun with the regular season and I thought people would like to join for the post season.

Group Name: MMAPlayground

GROUP ID# 22308

Password: donking

Your picks need to be in by December 18th. If you sign up, please post here in the forum because I'm going to leave it up to the group as to how we want to do it.

There's two options:

1. Straight Up - You pick the winners straight up and provide a tie-breaker score for the BCS title game

2.: Confidence - Same as above but you rank the bowls in terms of how confident you are that a certain team will win. There's 35 bowls so you would rank them from your least confident pick, to your most confident pick.

If you have any questions let me know. I hope you join in.

I signed up but I know nothing at all about NCAA football other than what I've learned from video games.

I might as well be flipping a coin on some of these teams.

So, I take it you're voting for straight picks rather than confidence?

whatever you guys decide is fine by me.

I'm going to finish last either way so there's no point in me picking one scoring method over another.

Confidence works like this. Take your BCS games.


BCS Title: Auburn-Oregon

Rose-TCU-Wisconsin

Orange:Stanford-Va. Tech

Sugar:Ohio St.-Arkansas

Fiesta:Oklahoma Connecticut

You would rank them by how confident you are that the team you picked to win will do so. In this case we have 5 bowl games. 5 would be your least confident pick and 1 would be your most confident pick. If I were to do this, it would look like this.

1.Fiesta:Oklahoma-Connecticut Winner Oklahoma

2.Orange:Stanford-Va. Tech Winner Stanford

3.Sugar:Ohio St.-Arkansas Winner Arkansas

4.Rose:TCU-Wisconsin Winner TCU

5.BCS Title:Auburn-Oregon Winner Oregon

I'm most confident that Oklahoma would win and least confident that Oregon will win out of the 5 bowls. Instead of 5 bowls, though, you have 35. So, you'd have to rank 35 bowls from your most confident pick, to your least confident pick.

Straight-up, you just pick the winner.

Bump

Game start tomorrow, make your picks today if you haven't. I've left it as straight picks. No confidence.

Yeah, Gord. Thanks, for some reason yahoo didn't save my picks.

If everyone trusts me, i'll add the four bowls in to my final score.

i only picked one correctly anyhow. BYU was the only pick I got right..

I would be 2-3 right now since I picked Boise, but I got that in on time along with the rest of my picks.

A 3 way tie at 50%, we might as well have flipped coins.
