I noticed on these two picks I did not crop the lines.


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.



Both games are more than 2 weeks out. I made the edits.

It appears that all of the favorites won and covered on day one to go 5-0. That would mean that Babs has a perfect record. Congrats.

I'd say everybody did pretty well, really. As a group we went 28-12.

TomG and Gordon888ís picks are closely aligned.
When I die, I want everyone who ever worked with me on a group project to lower me into my grave so they can let me down one last time.

Interesting. However, I had posted both their picks for these games at the same time, so I don't think it's anything beyond coincidence.

Midnight Sunday has come and gone. It was an arbitrary deadline, but I wanted to follow up.

No sign of troopscott. I asked around here and there, and no one has heard from him. However, back in November, he told someone he might be pretty busy and offline for some wrestling events for a kid or something. Pretty vague, but all I have.

With that said, I feel pretty strongly he committed to the seed money of $100, even if he's not entered to defend it. But I suppose it's possible we never see him here again.

Next game is tomorrow. I think I'd like to hear from those playing, on a vote, whether we continue or call it off and I refund everyone now, with or without the seed money (which is what made it +EV to enter, of course). Please weigh in before the start of the next game.

I vote to continue, just because it's interesting to see how it all comes out. With 34 games to go, there's a more than good chance I won't win, so hopefully my good start isn't influencing either me or anyone else.

What say the other players? (I will disregard any non-player opinions).

I am up for continuing. It is fun and it is only $25.
