Welcome to College
Bowl Pick' Em 2005
- Congrats to Rob Hasell. Good work. It was quite a competition, with
three people tied for first. Hassell won by scoring 12 points in the
tiebreak to 9 for Wes and 6 for Nick. This was the closest one we have
had yet, and the lowest winning score in several years. Those of you
who have not sent in your money, please please send it as soon as possible.
It is no fun to chase people.

- I believe we have a winner in Rob Hassell by tiebreak over Wes Battle
(and Nick Smetana if Texas wins). I am waiting verification from Brad.
- After the Ohio State/ND game I believe we have some clarity, although
this is by no means official. There are three players who can mathematically
lead or tie for the most points. Hassell and Wes, who are currently
tied for first with sixteen wins, and Nick Smetana, with fifteen points.
Wes and Rob have the same exact same three remaining picks (Georgia,
FSU, USC) thus if they tie they go to tiebreak. Currently Rob has twelve
points and Wes has nine. Wes could realize three more points if georgia
wins, but Rob has Georgia as his fifth pick, thus giving him a one point
lead in that scenario. So Wes is out. Now, to Nick. Nick has the exact
opposite picks from Rob (and Wes), giving him a win if all three win
(W Virginia, PSU, Texas). He could tie in total games if he wins two
out of three, but right now he only scores six in the tiebreak, so two
out of three is not going to cut it, he needs all three. With West Virginia
kicking the poo out of Georgia, looks like he might have one down, two
- Scenarios are now being posted.
- Crap call in the Iowa-Florida game.
- New Years day and no college football. It just does not feel right.
Move the NFL to saturday i say. We have a new leader in Rob Hassell,
alone in first with thirteen wins. There are still twelve people within
- Three are tied for the lead at 11 points
- It has been a ridiculous set of games of late. I am
sure there are a lot of very happy, and an equally amount of miserable
people, on either side of the Nevada-Central Florida Game. The Memphis-Akron
game? Just shocking for Memphis fans.
- All this leaves Chad East in sole posession of first,
with an impressive eight wins, one push, and no losses. Despite that
impressive record there still four people one game back at seven, and
five more at six wins.
- Four people remain undefeated, good work. One person
has yet to win a game. I have changed the report format a bit, so red
is a loss, blue a win, and black means yet to play. I have also added
in the spreads, so they should show on your player picks sheet. I have
also (hopefully) fixed the mover loser so that it gives us a daily change
- Two games down and only eight picked them both right. everyone is,
obviously, still within striking distance. Two games tonight.
- Game is on. Good luck and thanks for playing. We have thirty eight
competitors this year, which means the grand prize is $2,850.
- Pick all 28 Bowl Games against the spread. Each game counts for one
point. The first tiebreak is your top 5 best bets and second tiebreak
is the predicted total score of the Rose Bowl. You will get 5 points
for your 1st best bet, 4 pts for your 2nd….and 1 pt for your 5th.
In the event of a tie, the person with the most points wins. If still
tied, closest total score predicted in the Rose Bowl wins.
