Is there a way to verify that the picks sent to Troop are still unopened? If so, then his entry should be allowed until the first game goes off. Otherwise, it would be pretty easy to lock in the best or worst record by fading the group picks.
Although you are correct that he could do that, I wouldn't expect that of the person who is contributing $100 to the pot. The biggest prize would be $180 of which he contributed $125.
Edit: oops, slow post. Does Gordon possibly benefit from seeing everyone else's picks?
I know for a fact that whoever set these lines knows more than I do.
I have observed, however, that college games tend to run up the score, so I think the spread will be wider than predicted in many cases. So I took all favs.
Gordo does not have it within him to fade our picks due to his error. If I thought he could, I would have truncated everyone for now. But he couldn't occupy such high moral ground here as he does, and then cheat. :)
I suspect I spend the next least amount of time. I picked every favorite if they were favored by 3 points or less. I picked every dog if they were an underdog by 3.5 points or more.Quote: DRich
I am willing to bet that BBB put the least time into her picks. Picked every favorite.
Again, I don't follow college ball... I know nothing about any of the teams.
39 games, 78 teams. If anyone knows something about all of the teams, then they need to get out more.Quote: EdCollins

I watch 3 or 4 college football games every Saturday but I still don't claim to know much.
Military Bowl: Cincinnati (-5.5) vs. Virginia Tech (noon, ESPN)
Sun Bowl: Stanford (-6.5) vs. Pittsburgh (2 p.m., CBS)
I was picking Cincinnati (-5.5) and Stanford (-6.5) which is exactly what it says. However, I'll understand if you want to declare those picks as invalid.
