    The Secret of My Success in SOWAL Pickem: picking against my beloved UGA Dawgs vs UT, OM, FL & GT.
    I was happily wrong in picking AU over UGA, but unhappily wrong in picking UGA over Vandy.
    My usual SOWAL Pickem motto, "Wait Till Next Year!", now belongs exclusively to my beloved UGA Dawgs!
    I am basking in unfamiliar glory!

    Congrats Pearl! I lost it the last few weeks, outside of just bad selections, I am opening a new restaurant in the Bay Area and have spent more time here lately than I have at home in Seagrove. We will have to get together, all.of us, and buy you and Cnest a drink for jobs well done.

    cnest, on the National Championship game we do pick just who we think out of the four will win the National Championship? Is that correct? Since we already are picking who we will think will win in the Bama/Washington and Clemson/Ohio State game?

    Your pick on the last game answered my question. This is how I thought we chose last year.

    Lady D, I am not sure what to say other than I don't think any of the above listed teams are going to beat Alabama this year:cuss:

    I agree with cnestgr. Of course we pick who wins in each semi-final game. But if someone loses one or both of their semi-final picks, I think s/he should be allowed to re-pick the winner of the championsship game. Like Skunky said to begin with, this is a friendly game. Everyone should have the fun of picking the champion, regardless of if s/he didn't pick the semifinal winners correctly. There's always a chance for the need of a tie breaker. That can be managed if a tie occurs like it has in the past, such as questions like how scores the first point, etc.

    Don't forget your pick for who you think will win the National Championship.

    That can't be done until after the semifinals are played.

    Well, 30A Skunkape picked Bama ahead because he probably is right about no one being able to beat Bama. Totally forgotten how this was done last year but mine is what it is. And I can't remove it.

    Everyone will have a chance in the dead week to repick the Championship with possible tie break picks. I'll enter your initial Championship pick (if you pick one). During the dead week, anyone can change that game if they feel the need. If not, your original pick (if made) stands. Sorry for the confusion.
