Default Re: Season finale: BOWL Pick'em Thread

Hey Marc, what game do we post a score for? I say we ALL do it for the NC game because if we all pick a different game, it will be VERY confusing for whoever is unlucky enough to have to calculate all this. With that said, ON WITH THE PICKS!!!!!!!!!!


Cincinnati

Louisville

Texas Tech

UCLA

Hawaii

Boston College

Pittsburgh

Oklahoma State

Nebraska

Arizona State

West Virginia

Colorado

Arkansas

Oregon

Iowa State

Washington

Colorado State

Georgia Tech

Maryland

Virginia Tech


HERE COME THE GOOD GAMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Michigan

Texas

NC State

Penn State

Washington State

Georgia

Iowa (PLEASE USC, BEAT IOWA AND SHUT TREV ALBERTS UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


***********************************
Tostitos Fiesta Bowl
Tempe, Ariz. Friday, Jan. 3
8 p.m. (ABC) Ohio State (13-0) vs.
Miami (12-0)
***********************************
O!
H!
I!
O!!!!!!!!!!!!! (43)

Because I am so confident in my picking ability ( ) not only do you guys get to hear WHO I am picking, but WHY!

Game Recap:
The OSU run defense will shut down McGahee, and give up some big pass plays, but will prevent Miami from comming away with touchdowns. Miami will take a small lead into the lockeroom at halftime. In the second half OSU's defense will show up BIG TIME, and on offense Clarret will run buck wild and lead the OSU offense to a fourth quarter comeback, and Ohio State's seventh National Championship.

My suggesstion is that this week should be worth three points just like any other. You can't change the rules in the middle of the contest, when you guys know exactly how many points you need to beat me. It's just not right!

Corrected, I agree that you should include the total combined score for the title game (Fiesta Bowl). I will have my picks in shortly.

No, I picked "Ohio State" -- it sounds nicer than "MIAMI." If I knew most people called it "OSU," I probably wouldn't have picked it.
