2. American Eagle - 12 Correct
3. Knight Fisher - 11 Correct
4. bookworm - 10 Correct
5. godisawesomeness99 - 8 Correct

EDIT:
And after the 32nd game, here's how things shaped up:
1. American Eagle - 20 Correct
2. bookworm - 19 Correct
2. E II - 19 Correct
4. Knight Fisher - 17 Correct
5. godisawesomeness99 - 16 Correct

Only 7 more games to be played! Good luck, guys. \:D/

Uh, this is going to be close.

For excitement in the final game I have Oregon over Ohio State 43 - 31.

As do I. And I didn't have to change it, I predicted the championship game teams correctly from the start. \:D/

It sure is! One game to go and AE, KF, and Eugene all tied at 21 and me right behind at 20! :o

Edit:

Wait... that means I can’t win this since I'm a game behind. #-o
In fact if everyone has Oregon no one can win it on the pick, it will go to the score.

bookworm, you could conceivably win by switching your pick to Ohio State...

No, because they're going to lose. Thus my picking Oregon.
I get what you mean though.

No, I would have just moved into the massive tie?

But I think you would've been the winner because your score would've been closer to the true score (OSU 42, ORE 20).

As it stands now, I think I'm the season winner, because my final score was closer than everyone elses. :anxious:

Wow, I was just one off on the score! :o
You’re right then, I guess I would have won the tiebreaker.

I stand by my not changing picks though, it was an intentional choice. It definitely would have made sense to as, like you had pointed out, it was the only conceivable way to win. I had nothing to lose by changing, only a gain: being the only person to pick Ohio State and force a four-way tiebreaker if they won. I was so confident in my Oregon pick though (again, I had them from before the playoff even started) that I was content to leave it and finish one pick back, even if the game had gone the other way and I would have maybe won. If it wasn’t going to go down to the tiebreaker either way I may have gone ahead and changed it, but since it was I didn’t think it was worth it.

Final Scores:
AE - 21 (59.1%) [OR: 38 OS: 34 - 72 (OR: 20 OS: 42 - 62)]
KF - 21 (59.1%) [OR: 43 OS: 31 - 74]
Eugene - 21 (59.1%) [OR: 59 OS: 42 - 101]
bookworm - 20 (46.9%) {OR: 35 OS: 28 - 63}
gia - 17 (21.7%)



I did extremely well for being entirely clueless picks! I always am mostly clueless picks because I don’t know much about college teams, but this year I didn’t even have the spreads to help guide me in who was favored or underdog, so it was absolutely blind.
