      It's interesting to me after seeing what the Northwestern coach said yesterday about being motivated by this Bowl Mania. I wonder how many teams watch the bowl special and these preview shows where the analysts say how many confidence points they have on each game? I know I'd be pissed if some talking head on ESPN said he had my team as the 42 point loser. You always see a lot of those "high confidence" teams go down in flames, and I figure there has to be some direct correlation there. Maybe in the future I'll go against the grain with the high confidence picks.

        I have them for 31. Looks like most of the guys who picked USF have them high (or at least the ones who rearranged the confidence picks and didn't leave them 1-42 beginning to end).

        I'm only in for 16, but I think Sas has it for his 31.

        Yea I think the underdogs have a huge chip on their shoulder this year and this trend with all the upsets will continue in coming years

        I picked the mushcocks, one of my few upset picks; figures - I'm toast. :sadnanner:

        Second time in the last three days I've had a 30+ point pick survive in OT. :whew:

          I really wanted to change my pick to Oklahoma State earlier today, but every time I've changed a pick last second in the past, it's come back to bite me in the ass. At least it's only 11 points. :headslap:

          Poor Ralphie got thrown to the wolves last night. It looks like Mayfield & Rudolph might just be the best two passers in the country next season.

          Our fearless leader was the only one who picked FSU last night and it paid off for him. I think it's all over but the crying at this point.

            I thought about switching last minute, figuring most were picking Meatchicken, because, ya know, I'm a little back in the standings, and it's GD FSU! I just couldn't do it. :gah:

            I picked KY on a last minute switch.

            I have 50% of a Masters degree from GaTech....plus they hate UGA as much as us. So I took the nerds, but only at 13.

            I think Phan is in the best shape to overcome those ahead of him....SOB still has almost 300 points in play.

            P.S. - The Heisman winner and the philandering Evel Knievel are pretty disappointing.

            Man, Michigan is going to be the one that kills me. I'd only be behind by 12 if those clowns knew how to stop 3rd & long or a kick returner who waits 5 seconds to take the ball out of the end zone. :banghead:

            You've got the win in hand unless we pick different in a high-ish point game and I win the matchup. Michigan murdered my chances. Thankfully I went against my rule of not changing picks at the last second and changed my OSU pick to Clemson yesterday during the Bama game. Saved me for the moment. We'll see what happens, but kudos to a game well played. :fistbump:
