The Big Ten Pick Em' Champion is.... - TerpsNPhoenix - 12-03-2017 08:01 AM

ChrisRU ladies and gentlemen! We have a new champion. Congrats to chrisRU! Also, well done to Ohio1317 who made a valiant effort but couldn't quite get his 4th year in a row as champion and had to settle for 2nd place. Points after week 14

We had some interesting things happen this past week and end of the year. GE and MTS had a perfect pick this past week, good job! While we didn't have a tie for 1st place this year, we did have a tie for 3rd place AND 5th place. One tie after 14 weeks is interesting but two ties is pretty surprising. Thanks everyone for playing, its been fun. I'm sure we'll do it again next year so Chris can defend the title and Ohio can try to reclaim the top spot. As for now, how are we feeling about some bowl picks?

Congratulations to ChrisRU! And a big thanks to DexterDevil for starting it off and TerpsNPhoenix for getting us across the finish line!

The board had a bowl game pick 'em last year: http://csnbbs.com/thread-801541.html

Looking forward to losing again!

Yes, thanks for Dexter for having this. Most of the work was him. I'm just glad I could help out. The pick 'em is a fun thing that I enjoy and thought others probably feel the same way.

Doing the bowl pick 'em sounds good to me. Wanted to gauge interest and see how we do the points.

Thanks for keeping this going! Already looking forward to next year. Hopefully we can attract a few more B1G fans to this board. 04-cheers

Congrats ChrisRU!

Lol I scored a -2 on the final week. Had that ever happened before?

I don't know, that'd be a question for Dexter. It's those pesky wild cards!

Shoot, you saved the Pick Em’ this year. Thanks a lot, it’s good to know this is something that should be able to carry on in case of my absence. I vote confidence points for the bowl picks.

I do believe we’ve had negatives happen before, I’d have to go into the history of the spreadsheet to find out for sure.

Like I said, glad to help out on keeping this thing going. I really enjoy it and thought others do too. As for the confidence points, I'm good with that. Unless anyone has any major objections we'll go with that. Next question for everybody, do we want to do ALL the bowls? The B1G bowls plus a few other interesting games? Somewhere in between? What does everyone think?

I'd be all for a bowl pick-em similar to the B1G season. There's too many bowl games to do a confidence pool, but a straight pick sounds like a winner.

If it's not too much work, a full bowl schedule would be cool. I'm good with the decision of the committee as a whole.

How about this. Out on the main CS/CR board Ken D has set up a full bowl slate of pick 'em. Since that is set up I think we should do all B1G bowls and maybe 5 to 10 others and do confidence points. I'm probably going to partake in the one Ken D set up as well as this one. I'm open to the number of games as well as any games y'all would be interested in.

I'm guess the NY6. Here are some others I'm interested in. Tell which ones you like/want and what you don't. If you want a game I haven't listed, TELL ME!

Sugar : Clemson vs Alabama
Rose : Georgia vs Oklahoma
Peach : UCF vs Auburn
Liberty : Iowa State vs Memphis
Sun : Arizona State vs NC State
Camping World : Oklahoma State vs Virginia Tech
Dolar General : Toledo vs Appalachian State
Birmingham : Texas Tech vs USF
Las Vegas : Boise State vs Oregon

Congrats to Chris U 01-ncaabbs

The Quick Lane Bowl Duke vs NIU would be an interesting add as there are not too many P5 vs G5 bowls plus it's being played in Detroit which is in the B10 footprint
