2011 College Football Pick 'em

2011 College Football Pick 'em

Postby TenuredVulture » Sun Aug 28, 2011 2:05 pm

Basically, it's last year's group--Hanging Out in Lot K (Group #14304). E-mails were sent to those who participated last year, and a general invite is going out to the BSG group. The password is wheels.

Pick against the spread, spreads are posted starting Monday. You can make your picks up to 5 minutes before kick off, and your worst week is dropped, so if you forget to do your picks one weekend, you're still in the running. Even so, this typically a matter of attrition--probably only a couple of people will continue to make picks as the season drags on.

This was a lot of fun for me last year. It made keeping track of all of those boring SEC games bearable!

Today's the day! Sign UP! Get your picks in! Forget all about it sometime around week 8!

Actually, the first game on our list of games to pick isn't until tomorrow, so you've actually got some time. But why wait?

It hardly takes any time at all. Just go with your gut. Find out how wrong your gut can be!

If you do well, it is fun. If you do poorly, quit and forget you ever tried. Win win.

The thing I really noticed last year when doing this was, when I would watch College Gameday on ESPN and they would pick the games differently than I did and I would get concerned that I didn't know what I was doing...they were as bad as I was! Maybe worse! I Tivo Gameday (starts at 7 AM for me...YAWN!) and watch it after I get up. By the time they are doing the picks at the end, the first set of games were already over or ending, so I had a quick check on how they did. Experts on ESPN go with their guts and their guts are stupid! Feel superior to ESPN expert guts! If I wasn't doing this pickem I would forget all about the SO CALLED EXPERT picks and would continue to assume they were actual experts instead of SO CALLED experts. I'm just as much an expert as they are! And didn't recognize half the teams on the list and they do RESEARCH and have PEOPLE! Doesn't matter!

You can do it to! For free! It only costs you your precious time. Don't worry, your family will wait for you to finish making your picks. They love you! They want you to be happy. Pick'em will make you happy. Trust me.

You know what's tempting? Kent St. + 38 points. 38 points! Imagine! Getting spotted 38 points. What is Vegas thinking? You can't lose. LA Layfayette + 37? Akron + 34?

INSANITY!

I picked every week and TV won it going away (9 games, I think). That's a good win pct against the line. I took too many underdogs.
