Wow ... FSU losing hurt. I did not see that coming ... but I hadn't heard about their QB not being there until it was too late to do anything about it.

Yep, and I did something I said I would not do again. I changed from TCU to Oregon. It was already a push. I'll probably regret it:(

MSU has a JV O though, they got here by defense and it's being exposed. The Big10 is a joke!

Happy New Year, everyone!

Remember to submit your pick for the MNC game.

We've had a bit of a shakeup as BG Hokie has taken over sole possession of the #1 spot and Bay Area Hokie has moved into a tie for fourth. Bay Area Hokie and HokieFanDC have both narrowed their gap and are only 64 points out of first place - that's a two-game margin potentially.

== 1 BG Hokie Misses oakton BaardG 20 of 31 495 639
-1 2 BigDave David 21 of 31 484 669
== 3 AZHokie Tony 19 of 31 456 623
+1 4 Bay Area Hokie Picks Jimbo 21 of 31 431 657
== 4 HFDCs Merry Band of Picks Mark 22 of 31 431 691
== 6 VoiceOfWinning! - a VoR joint John 18 of 31 402 651
+3 7 ElbertoHokie Robert 18 of 31 373 630
== 8 Ruth Burns's Superb Pick Set Ruth Burns 20 of 31 372 617
== 9 Major Kong's Bomb Run Picks Hephaestus 20 of 31 342 682

Geez, I went 2/7 last 2 days. Can't imagine why I'm holding on to 3rd place, but probably won't last long.
I did notice that the top 3 pretty much picked close. Biggest difference is in the confidence points for each team.

There have been disappointingly many blowouts today ... it's just not as exciting.

On the other hand, our game is very exciting and we now have just 24 points separating 1st and 5th. One wrong pick could mean elimination. Do you stay with your original picks or do you second guess yourself?

I'm assuming Iowa isn't going to come back and win this thing ... our standings after the Stanford game are:

+1 1 BigDave 561
-1 2 BG Hokie 555
== 3 HokieFanDC 549
-1 4 AZHokie 541
+1 5 VoiceOfReason 537
-1 6 Bay Area Hokie 513
+1 7 Ruth Burns 482
+1 8 Major Kong 472
+2 9 UpstateSCHokie 438
== 10 ElbertoHokie 412
-4 11 NolanVT 407
== 12 IP Law Hokie 374
+1 13 STATONTW6 373
-1 14 Hokie CPA 312
== 15 Tough Guy 304

Good grief ... all blowouts on New Years. Hopefully tomorrow is better.

HokieFanDC has jumped all the way up to #2 after starting the day tied for fourth. He has the most possible points and so if he gets all of his remaining picks right, nobody else can catch up.

Six people are now eliminated and don't have enough possible points to catch up.

Here's how we end up the night ...

== 1 BigDave 587 (680 possible points)
+1 2 HokieFanDC 577 (691 possible points)
-1 3 BG Hokie 574 (639 possible points)
+1 4 VoiceOfReason 564 (651 possible points)
-1 5 AZHokie 544 (624 possible points)
== 6 Bay Area Hokie 536 (650 possible points)
== 7 Ruth Burns 504 (617 possible points)
+1 8 UpstateSCHokie 474 (632 possible points)
-1 9 Major Kong 472 (658 possible points)
== 10 Elberto 412
+1 11 IP Law Hokie 411
+1 12 STATONTW6 410
-2 13 NolanVT 407
== 14 Hokie CPA 312
== 15 Tough Guy 304

REMEMBER TO MAKE YOUR PICK FOR THE MNC!

BG Hokie, Voice of Reason, Ruth Burns, Elberto, IP Law Hokie, Nolan, and Tough Guy do not appear to have done so.

By the way, I had TCU in this game and lost my nerve this morning and switched it to Oregon. When it was 31-0, I was glad ... now ... not so much.

I changed my tcu pick to the ducks after the tcu qb was arrested. Dang. I still wouldn't have won though as I wanted to put only one point on the NC game.

TCU-Oregon who would have thought a center who keeps bouncing snaps back to QB would make a difference in a game :?: :mrgreen:

You did pretty well yourself Dave. Thanks for hosting the tourney. It was fun regardless of how well I did (or didn't) do.
