College Bowl Pick’em!

If there's something on your mind that just doesn't seem to fall into any of the other categories, well, it quite likely belongs inside Joe Finneman's marketplace. Think of it as a general store for general discussions!

College football is freakishly overrated. :anxious: I have to her about the SEC garbage all the time.

Switch it to ESPN and I will be signed up before you can say Gerald R. Ford played for Michigan or we put an entire shuttle team in space.

I didn’t know ESPN had one, I just heard about this. What’s the difference? Picking games is picking games.

KF, you can sign in with Facebook or Gmail instead of creating a Yahoo account, or at least that's what it said.

I don't know anything about college football, but I'm going to pick games anyway. \:D/

EDIT: Okayy, I'm even more clueless than I thought I was.... How exactly do you go about picking games? :-

It's pretty much too late to do this, because 3 of the games are already finished. I didn't even make any picks. :anxious:

That’s easy to overcome. I set it to straight picks, so you get 1 point for correct picks and 0 for incorrect.

Aeva wrote:How exactly do you go about picking games?
Once you join the group, select ‘Create New Pick Set’ under ‘My Picks & Groups’
Choose your preferences, click continue.
Then just choose who you think will win each game, and at the bottom enter the tie breaker scores and submit your form.

I can’t see your picks so I don’t know if you made them right, but you’re listed in the group so that’s a good sign. :)

I... forgot about this. :- But I clicked "Submit Picks," so maybe now I've got it right. And apparently I guessed correctly on three games. \:D/

For coming in late, AE, you're doing a fairly good job of massacring our league.

I haven’t checked the standings recently, but I don’t care because I’m not going to change anything. I was totally clueless on just about every game, so I just picked who sounded good.

In this league, I'm running away with it. In my real-life league, I'm actually like tied for 4th place. \:D/
