After one day, Major Kong impressively got all five games correct. IP has his 41 game in the house right off the bat. BigDave has the early lead in points.

Next up: Tulsa takes on one of three directional Michigan bowl teams to make a bowl this year. Have all three directional Michigans ever made it to a bowl? First Donald Trump wins and now this?

Why does it say Nolan can only get 155 points?

Did you not fill out all the picks Nolan?

Yes, that's what it is. It only includes "possible points" from picks you have made. If you don't make a pick, you have no possible points.

It also doesn't include the MNC in your "possible points", since you haven't picked the winner yet. Technically, Alabama hasn't yet clenched a title game berth, so you can't pick them until the formality of their game against UDub is over. So that's why even if one person has fewer missed points than someone else, they may be lower in the "possible points" - because they put more weight on the MNC.

Merry Christmas Eve, everyone!

Who in the world would have thought Idaho would beat Colorado State? Colorado State was a 16-ppoint favorite over a hapless Idaho team that was booted from the RUTS Belt for being too sucky for the suckiest conference.

Well, it was an exciting day of bowls with Tech crushing Arkansas 35-0 in the second half. I can't seem to remember what happened in the first half, but I'm sure it's not worth mentioning.

And we can declare a winner! Congratulations HokieFanDC! Regardless of what happens in the MNC game, HokieFanDC cannot be caught.

Better luck next time everyone - we'll do this in two months and change for the NCAAs.

Yeah, I'll go copy/paste it just so we have the full standings ... first place won't change, but the lower spots can.
