Image College Bowl Pick'em Contest! Image

It's time to pick the college football bowl games again! \:D/ Our group is renewed, please go and join!
ESPN Bowl Mania Password: thetoo
You have until December 15th to submit your picks; I hope we have several people play this year!

This is like the March Madness game, but even easier to work through. It's literally just picking teams down a list. It can be entirely random, just click one in each game. The more participants there are the more fun it is, you don't have to really know what you're doing! Please enter, even if you don't care about the games at all. It takes less than two minutes to do and then you can forget about it if you want. Just join to be nice to us who would like a big group playing! :)

Previous: 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016

Expand below for instructions if you're confused about how to join the group or make your picks:
You will need an ESPN account. Make one now if you don't have one already, it's very easy and fast. You don't have to provide identifying information.
PM me if you have trouble or concerns making an account and I can make one for you.

  • Log in to your ESPN account and go to the page for our group linked above. Click the "Play Now" button.

Image

  • Set a name for your entry (it's nice if it has your ToO username in it somewhere) and enter the group password. Click "Continue"

Image

  • The ToO group should be added to your list. Click "Continue"

Image

  • Don't need to do anything at the next screen, just click "Continue"

Image

How to make your picks:
(These pictures are just examples of the process, the teams you see may be different.)

  • Simply go down the list of games and click on one team in each game. (The one you think will win.) The green bars show how many other people have picked that team. Continue picking one team in each game until you reach the bottom of the list.

Image

  • Guess how many points each team will score in the final championship game. (This is used for the contest tiebreaker if one is needed.)

Image

  • Verify have picked winners for all the games and save your picks!

Image

That's it! You're all set! \:D/
PM me if you have problems or questions with anything.




Image Bowl Game Live Chats! Image

For those who do care I've also set up a Chatroom channel for live chatting the games! \:D/
Join #Bowl if you're able to be online while you watch, especially if you are rooting for either team playing! If you are watching but can't chat during the game you can at least come by to check in during commercial breaks!

I won't be there for most of the early bowls, but feel free to hold your own viewing parties. Hopefully we'll have a good showing when we get to the bigger ones in a couple weeks.

Schedule of bowls, dates, times, and channels

Here we are, Alabama Crimson Tide vs Georgia Bulldogs in the National Championship!
January 8th, #Bowl, please come by!

It's an all-SEC championship, with Alabama being one of the teams for the third straight year.

And with my correct Alabama pick, AE wins the bowl pick'em. \:D/

I strongly dislike Alabama because of their neverending success, but I've resigned to the fact that each year there's greater than 50% chance they'll win it all.

Exactly my feelings. :|


Congratulations to AE for winning the picking contest! \:D/ (Two in a row! \:D/ )
It was way closer than I expected, considering Bltiz just used random autofill (but then again, there's technically a 50% chance of being correct in any pick I guess) so I was eager to see how it was going to turn out with everything coming down to the final game! AE would have actually won either way, because Blitz refused to submit a tiebreaker score, but it's nice that he ended up winning outright. :) Interesting note: KF finished last for the third year in a row. :P

Thank you to everyone who participated, it was really nice to have a bigger group this year!

Final Scores:
1. AE - 25 (96%)
2. Blitz - 24 (92.4%)
3. Rosie - 21 (69.1%)
4. bookworm - 20 (58.2%)
4. 321tumbler - 20 (58.2%)
6. KF - 19 (47.6%)
