College Bowl Pick' Em 2007
- Congratulations to Ryan Friend who breaks a four way tie for first
(unprecedented) by picking all five of his best picks for a total of
15 tiebreaker points and takes home $5,025. Ryan Vaughan and Jack LeRoy
tied for second with 12 points, and Tania Harrick had 8.
Nick Nutter and Steven Sparks share the infamy of dead last with
nine points, three less than the next worse. Which is impressive in
its own right.
Great work and congratulations. I hope everyone enjoyed themselves
and will play next year.
Brad, Wes, & LT
- Ryan Vaughan has taken over the lead (apparently he is on a tear,
recently won his NFL survivor pool as well) but there are still a bunch
of people on his heels. With four games left there are still twenty
eight people within four games. Of course due to matchups not all those
people can still win, but at least eight still can according to the
player scenarios report (http://www.hltiv.com/turbo/cf07/playerscenarios.html
remember that this report does not account for the top five tiebreaker
that comes before the total points tiebreaker.) With so many people
at the top I have to think the odds are strong we end in a tie year
and go to top five, but we will see
- Most all of you have paid, and i thank you for that. We have a lot
of fun running this event, but collecting from people is NOT any fun.
If you have not paid please do so today.

- This is getting pretty heated. I am not sure if it has ever been so
tight this far along. Right now there are four people tied for first
with 12, and 43 people within four games of the lead. Any of those people
could win it.
- Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone. With one week and
seven games done, we now head into a one week stretch with twenty two
games to play (and three after that). There have been a couple great
games already, and many more to come I am sure. The first week was dominated
by....me, really. However, with my first loss last night (after Purdue
gave up a HUGE lead) its back to a dogfight with a tie between Tania
Harrick and me for first, six players one game back and twelve two games
back. With so many games left to play almost everyone is still in it,
except maybe a few such as Steven Sparks and James McBride who have
yet to record a win. Impressive really.
- Thank you to everyone that signed up and welcome. Wes, Brad and I
hope you enjoy, we know we do. We have 67 players this year for an awesome
prize of $5,025. Good luck to all.

- Welcome to College Bowl Pick Em 2007. For those of you that have participated
in years past welcome back. For newcomers, this is a great event and
I know you will enjoy it. There is no better way to become intimately
involved in all the games. People often talk about the meaning of the
season around this time of year......and I am pretty sure they mean
College Bowl Season.
- Pick all 32 Bowl Games against the spread plus the tiebreak of your
top 5 best bets and predicted score of the Championship Game. You will
get 5 points for your 1st best bet, 4 pts for your 2nd.and 1 pt for
your 5th. In the event of a tie, the person with the most points wins.
If still tied, closest score wins.

first game is the San Diego Credit Union Poinsetta Bowl on Thursday
night December 20th at 9:00 pm EST. That is the deadline for joining

note, if there is a tie game (due to the spread, also known as a push)
that counts as a loss as far as the picking of best bets.
