    I've climbed up to #5 in the last week but there isn't enough points left to catch anyone.... I think it's over for me.

    Oh. Were we supposed to pick winners? I misunderstood and chose the teams that I thought would lose.

    :whistle:

      First place is clinched, but Phan can jump me into 2nd place if he picks the NC winner correctly. I feel like we should have a gentleman's bet and pick opposite teams to make things more interesting. :whistle:

      I would take Clemson if I wasn't a few points shy of being able to win with the leader taking Bama. Now I'll agree to take Bama if you want to take the Dabos.

      I can do that, I was honestly leaning towards changing that pick anyway. :lol:

      I picked Clemson to win it all from the very beginning of doing this picks before the first bowl game. I won a big football pool at work but changed my pick of Houston to SDSU and Navy to La Tech. I have 32 wins in that one with National Championship pending.

      Well then it seems we'll end up with the same W-L percentage, but you'll have played the points a little better than I did.

      @SouthernGator84 comes away with the win by 10 points, Champion Sasquatch is going to have to be first loser this bowl season after coming up just short and finishing 3rd last year. @Gatorphan has the epic comeback fall just short and finishes third. @GatorJ is this year's big loser, finishing in last place, 120 points behind the next player.

      Thanks for playing, we'll see you again next winter! :captain:

        I was so damn abysmal. I stopped looking with about 10 games to go. I'm not sure if I got more than five games right.

            Well we finished with the same record, so that means I was 174th, as well. :dance:

              Since I finished second in the regular season - I figured I would finish in the top 2 or 3 - maybe even win the Bowl thing.
              If you didn't scroll down far enough - you probably didn't see me:

              [​IMG]

              Two things:
              1. Second from the bottom
              2. hu·bris
              ˈ(h)yo͞obrəs/
              noun
              1. excessive pride or self-confidence.
                synonyms: arrogance, conceit, haughtiness, hauteur, pride, self-importance, egotism, pomposity, superciliousness, superiority

                  You're right - I should have redacted your name.
                  It was only there to emphasize the fact that I didn't suck the most.
                  Only the second most... :grin:

                  I climbed up to 5th but putting my faith in Bama (SEC) cost me dearly.....

                  Fun Trip!
