Why yes Foresy picked the Bruins to win the Pac 12 nice call!
If I could start my life all over again, I would be a professional football player, and you damn well better believe I would be a Pittsburgh Steeler.

-Burghy and I are a perfect match.
-These scores are not final yet..Jrny will factor in the conference winner bonuses next.

Thank you sir, I'll put em in the fridge till I get off work.
You did great Greg. You had me sweating the last few weeks.

Blitz...thanks for keeping up with the scoring and putting the games up. J better not flunk, considering all the slacking he's been doing on this contest lately.

J, hurry up and make this official. I want my trophy!!!
You can put it above my bowl games one. Cause everyone knows College hoops is soooo much better than College football.

Congrats on the win Coach.


Went out last night and got really wasted. 
I woke up in the middle of the night next to some chick who was snoring and farting, so I knew I made it home OK.
