Welcome to College Bowl Pick' Em 2004

A quick wrap up. Gaffney takes the prize with an extraordinary 79% pick percentage for 22 out of 28 games. Remember that last year 18 games took the win. This year not only did Gaffney surpass that mark by four games, but four others (Thompson, Thompson, Kowalczyk, and Wren) reached the 18 game mark at 64% of all games correct.
I hope you all enjoyed this years Bowl Pick'Em as much as I have. I know my wife will be glad to have me back for evenings. If you have not paid yet please do, Brad and Wes and I put this together just for fun and it becomes a pain if we have to root around for money. I believe most of you have paid, those who have not will be hearing from us shortly. Thanks!
Congratulations to Lincoln Gaffney! Up three with two to go means he takes the pot.
Okay, it took me a couple drinks to get through a fun but tough Michigan game, so I believe this analysis to be accurate but....don't take it to the bank.
Gaffney leads LT by two, with Dave Wren, Macon Thompson, and Jeff Kowalczyk three back. There are three games left including Pitt/Utah tonight. None of the three third place guys have more than one game different than Gaffney, eliminating all of them. LT has two games different than Gaffney, thus giving him (me) a chance to tie in total points.
So if Utah or USC cover Gaffney wins. If Pitt and OU cover we go to the tiebreak. Gaffney has lost his 1st, 3rd, and 5th tiebreakers, and won his 4th. Giving him 2 points. If Utah wins he would win his 2nd and have six points (but if Utah wins he would win anyway). LT won his first pick and his 4th. Giving him 7 (8 if Virginia Tech wins). Thus if Pitt and OU cover LT will win the tiebreak.
Hope that makes sense.
Happy New Years!! After the early games (Tennessee and Georgia) Gaffney is holding onto a one point lead with Macon Thompson on his heels. There are three players two back hoping for the leaders to falter. The player scenarios still are not working. The Turbo Tourney software guys say it is due to the use of point spreads and are working on fixing it.
Kowalczyk, Gaffney, and Macon are tied for 1st with 11 points. Another 20 within three points with 16 of 28 games complete. Also, the player scenarios page is not accurate, so don't pay it too much attention.
Things are starting to thin out a bit as we have our first sole leader in Eli Burstein, but a lot of games left to be played.
Here we go....22 games over the next nine days.
Two wins by teams not many people picked (Cincy-8 and Wyoming-12) helps to sort things out a little but not too much, with 29 out of 31 people still within two points of the lead.
Five people picked the first three games correctly and everyone has at least one win. Two games tonight.
21 picked Southern Miss correctly, now comes the worst stretch, no games until the fun really begins the 21st
Lets get it on. Good Luck. The pot is $2,325 (31*75)
