Well, it was somewhat of an anticlimactic finish. Although it was cool that it came down to the tiebreaker, I was hoping it would come down to the National Championship game. But only one of you picked Texas anyway. With McCoy going out so early, I was surprised it was as much of a game as it was. I'm not a fan of Texas, but I hated seeing McCoy go out like that. I still think Alabama would've won if McCoy played, but you never know. Alright, most of you probably know already, but here are the final results. Congrats kid_shazam!

kid_shazam: 21-13*
DuffDawg: 21-13
jlutjelu: 20-14
hotstuffler: 20-14
Independent Thought: 19-15
floridagators: 19-15
Rorschach's Revenge: 19-15
philmonica: 19-15
floridag8tor: 18-16
stlope01: 18-16
PaPa: 18-16
bsav21: 18-16
ally2581: 18-16
alterbatman: 17-17
mattbiltswitch: 17-17
Hope: 15-19

*kid_shazam beat out DuffDawg via the tiebreaker. The final score of the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl was 47-20 (67). kid_shazam's point total was 44 and DuffDawg's was 91. So kid_shazam had a 1 point closer guess. It doesn't get any closer than that. Sorry for the tough loss DuffDawg. But that's what you get for picking Georgia Tech. You're a bulldog fan. What were you thinking?

Okay, well thanks for playing. I plan on doing this again next year. It should be fun. Later.

Here we go, 32 of the 34 bowl game have been played now, and we are coming down to the wire. We still have the GMAC Bowl tonight, which will feature Central Michigan vs. Troy.  And then obviously, Texas vs. Alabama will play for the BCS National Championship tomorrow night. Here are the updated standings through last night's Orange Bowl.

hotstuffler: 19-13 (Troy & Alabama)
kid_shazam: 19-13 (Central Michigan & Alabama)
PaPa: 18-14* (Troy & Texas)
------------------------------------------------------------------
DuffDawg: 19-13**
Independent Thought: 18-14
jlutjelu: 18-14
philmonica: 17-15
floridagators: 17-15
Rorschach's Revenge: 17-15
---------------------------------------
floridag8tor: 16-16
bsav21: 16-16
ally2581: 16-16
stlope01: 16-16
mattbiltswitch: 15-17
alterbatman: 15-17
Hope: 14-18

Unfortunately, any of you that are 16-16 or worse, you've been officially mathematically eliminated. Sorry, I wish you better luck next year.

Also, based on the remaining picks: Independent Thought, jlutjelu, philmonica, floridagators & Rorschach's Revenge can't win. Because your picks for the final two games are the same as either hotstuffler's & kid_shazam's.

*PaPa holds the tiebreaker over hotstuffler.
**DuffDawg picked the last two games the same as kid_shazam, but kid_shazam holds the tiebreaker (by 1 point).

So, let me use my incredible skills of logic, to break it down for you.

If Central Michigan wins tonight, it's over, kid_shazam wins.
If Troy & Alabama win, hotstuffler wins.
If Troy & Texas win, PaPa wins.

I'll put up the final results & officially announce the winner on Friday. Good luck to all those still in the running.

Alright, we are 13 bowl games in, and there are still 21 to go. Here are the updated standings through yesterday's games.

Independent Thought: 10-3
hotstuffler: 10-3
philmonica: 9-4
jlutjelu: 9-4
PaPa: 8-5
ally2581: 8-5
bsav21: 7-6
alterbatman: 7-6
DuffDawg: 7-6
kid_shazam: 7-6
floridag8tor: 6-7
mattbiltswitch: 6-7
Hope: 6-7
stlope01: 6-7
floridagators: 6-7
Rorschach's Revenge: 4-9

A couple of you are starting to separate from the pack, but for the most part it's still wide open. I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think anybody has been mathematically eliminated yet. I'll put up another update next Wednesday (1/6/10), which is the day before the BCS National Championship game. We might have a winner by that point. I hope it comes down to the championship game. But only one of you picked Texas (PaPa). We'll see how things look after this weekend. I hope you all have a safe & happy new year!

Hey there, here's an update of the bowl picks through Tuesday. There have only been 4 games played so far, so there's not much to report. I sent out an excel page for those of you that wanted to keep track. But for those of you that don't feel like doing that, here's how it's looking so far.

3-1 record: PaPa

2-2 record: bsav21, Independent Thought, philmonica, hotstuffler

1-3 record: floridag8tor, mattbiltswitch, alterbatman, ally2581, Hope, DuffDawg, stlope01, floridagators, kid_shazam, Rorschach's Revenge, jlutjelu

Nobody has gotten them all right. And nobody has gotten them all wrong. It's still pretty much wide open. I wish you all continued luck, and also Merry Christmas!

Yes, I put asterisks in the title, so you know it's special.

First of all, here are the top 3 scores from last week's contest:

floridag8tor - 14
philmonica, Rorschach's Revenge, ally2581 & stlope01 (all tied with) - 12
floridagators - 11

Congrats for the second time floridag8tor! It's too bad you're not this good at fantasy football (but I missed the playoffs too, so wtf do I know). Your $20 Visa Gift Card will be in the mail soon.

Let's move on to this week now. I've been thinking back & forth about how to go about the football picks contests over the next three weeks. I was tinkering with the idea of do a mixture of week 15 & 16 NFL games, plus the early bowl games, for this week's contest. And then for next week's doing the remaining bowl games, and just forgetting about week 17 of the NFL. But in the end I decided to -- as you can see -- just do one big bowl game picks contest. I've decided to not do picks for weeks 15-17 of the NFL for a couple of reasons. First of all, I didn't want to have to do 4 picks contests over the next 3 weeks (mainly b/c I'm poor enough already & I've got Christmas presents to buy). Secondly, I'm bitter towards the NFL right now, b/c I barely missed out on the playoffs in one of my fantasy football leagues; so screw the NFL (not really, I'll watch every single game). Alright, enough blabbering.

It's the same set-up; just pick the winner straight up. I was also thinking about doing it with confidence points, but I don't have the time, energy or program to run it. Just click the link below & make your picks for all the bowl games. I'll announce the winner on Friday, January 8th. I'll also give updates & put up a little leaderboard each Wednesday until the end. One other thing: The winner will get a $25 Visa Gift Card. I know, a whole extra $5, it's pretty amazing, settle down. If you have a friend or relative that you think would enjoy participating, please let them know about the contest. Good luck!

For those of you that have never played before: Just click on the image below, and you'll be able to submit your picks there. Only one entry per person, you must be a URDD member, and picks need to be submitted by 4pm (EST) on Saturday. The winner will get a $25 Visa Gift Card! If anybody has any problems, let me know.

Sorry again, I didn't make an official chart. This time I wasn't too busy, I just didn't want to see all that red covering Florida over & over; making me relive that loss. That merciless beating by Alabama was painful. Great, now I'm depressed again. Okay, here are the top 5 from last week's contest:

Rorschach's Revenge - 11
stlope01 - 10
Hotstuffler - 10
ally2581 - 9
Hope - 8

Congrats Rorschach's Revenge! Although, I've gotta call you out. Come on man, you're a Gator fan. And you won by picking Alabama. That's messed up. You've always gotta pick your team. The only other person to pick Alabama was jlutjelu, but he's a Nebraska fan, so he can do that. Guess what else; jlutjelu picked Nebraska over Texas, like a true fan should (he was the only person to pick Nebraska by the way). You broke my heart Rorschach's Revenge...you broke my heart. Hey jlutjelu, just wanted to say, I hope you're doing okay after that brutally close loss. But at least your team showed up & represented. Unlike my Gators, who came out and laid a giant fucking orange & blue egg. And Suh, holy shit, he is a beast! I was rooting hard for Nebraska; mainly because I wanted BCS chaos. I'll tell you, it's hard to root for Nebraska though. We still haven't forgotten the '95 National Championship game.

Alright, well let's get on with this week's contest. Besides the Army vs. Navy game, college football is done until the bowls begin. So I've included all of the NFL (except for the Thursday night game). Click on the link below to submit your picks. Good luck!

Also -- like I say every week -- if you know anybody that you think would enjoy participating, please let them know about the contest. For those of you that have never played before: Just click on the image below, and you'll be able to submit your picks there. Only one entry per person, you must be a URDD member, and picks need to be submitted by 11:30am (EST) on Saturday. The winner will get a $20 Visa Gift Card! If anybody has any problems, let me know.

Sorry, too busy to make up a results chart this week, hopefully next week. Don't worry, you'll get over it. Here are the top 5 finishers from last week's contest; in a much simpler & less exciting fashion:

floridag8tor - 13 (winner via tiebreaker)
stlope01 - 13
Rorschach's Revenge - 11
Independent Thought - 10
Hotstuffler - 10

Congrats floridag8tor! Alright, well this weekend there are a bunch of big games. Obviously there are the conference championships. And there are also some NFL games with playoff implications. So click the link below to submit your picks. Oh, before I forget, I wanted to send out a big thank you to Carlos Dunlap for being a fucking moron. Being a Gator fan, I was thrilled to hear that your stupid ass got arrested for drunk driving & is now suspended for the SEC Championship. Great decision! Okay, now I'm in a bad mood, go ahead & send in your picks. Good luck!

Also -- I say this every week & this week is no different -- if you know anybody that you think would enjoy participating, please let them know about the contest. For those of you that have never played before: Just click on the image below, and you'll be able to submit your picks there. Only one entry per person, you must be a URDD member, and picks need to be submitted by 11:30am (EST) on Saturday. The winner will get a $20 Visa Gift Card!

Okay, I'm back...again. Sorry for the recent absences. As you can see, things look a little different. I'm trying something new, we'll see how it works. Just click the link below to see the full results. And the winner is...


Congrats Hotstuffler! You finally don't suck at something. It was another close one, coming down to the tie-breaker. Alright, go to the link below to submit your picks for this week. I contemplated picking some games from the Thursday & Friday football schedule, but decided not to. I didn't want everybody having to rush to submit their picks earlier than normal. So again, there are only games from the regular Saturday through Monday schedule. But most of the early games weren't that good anyway. I hope everybody has a nice & relaxing Thanksgiving break. I'll see you next week. Good luck!
