A college football community's Annual Bowl Challenge !!!
« on: December 05, 2012, 07:13:48 PM »
Afternoon All, its that time of year again.... time for the Threads Annual Bowl Challenge. In my next post I will list the games. To play choose the winner of each game. The game you are most sure of place a 35 next to it, 34 on the next and so on down to the number 1. Each number can only be used once

If your pick is correct you are awarded that number, if your pick is wrong you forfeit that number. The winner in the end will be the one with the most points. A tie breaker of total points in the NCG

All can play, even if you haven't posted here before. I ask all entries be submitted by Wednesday Dec 12th 9PM ET so I have time to record, the games begin on the 15th

This is pretty fun, and it a little harder than it may seem. Good luck to all

WM, I think I have 57.  I thonk you added the date (15) to my Ariz. pick (29).

My picks were Ariz. 29 and Utah St. 28.

Not like I care a lot, since the grand prize is pride, but maybe, as Carl said in "Caddyshack,"  on my deathbed I'll receive total consciousness . . .
