Thank You Georgia Tech and 34. Don't ask me why I just really liked them to win that game.

Yikes!!! I might be .500 right now.  Happy for the ACC though, the worst they can do is 3-3; FSU should beat NIU.  The conference could use a little respect.

I have 361 for my count, with FU and 33 tonight.

I like the fact I made the right picks but I was really unsure about the points to put on 36 teams. I have a hard enough time doing 16 for football facepalm

A pat on the back and a hearty "Well done!!" grin1

Those confidence points were a very interesting twist (as wmich said they would be). I had the same or better record than 8 other people and finished 12th!!

I had money on SuperGnat repeating and starting to use the term "dynasty" but kudos to Fore.
