    30A Skunkape, I show I got 9 correct. Sorry just now posting, my mother passed away Tuesday and had been barely hanging on since Sunday so I've had a lot to take care of. I show I got Mississippi State -points, Oklahoma, Florida-points, Ohio State, Georgia-points, Miami (FL), Arizona State, Vandy and South Carolina.

    NEAR FINAL RESULTS

    Our Alabama bias came out to bite many of us as they failed to cover the spread and Tua looked like a mere mortal. Kyler Murray easily won the total yards contest passing for 379 yards to Tua's 164 yards. Dwayne Haskins passed for an incredible 499 yards and 5 TD, besting Murray.

    WEEKLY RESULTS
    Bob Wells 10
    Lady D 10
    Red Dawg I 10
    Skunkape 9
    aTm Mom 8
    Bac 8
    Beach Runner 8
    Cnestg8r 8
    Kurt 8

    PRESEASON PREDICTION RESULTS

    Remember way back when we started the season how we picked a race between two QBs, season win totals and who would make the playoff? I went and tallied it all up and am posting those results here. EVERYONE picked Clemson and Alabama in top four. A few got Oklahoma, nobody saw Notre Dame coming.

    aTm Mom 50
    Kurt 50
    Beach Runner 45
    Cnestg8r 45
    Skunkape 45
    Bac 40
    Red Dawg 40
    Bob Wells 35
    LadyD 35

    GRAND TOTALS

    I added preseason results to rolling point totals (which I corrected for all).

    aTm Mom 167
    Kurt 164
    Cnestg8r 159
    Skunkape 156
    Red Dawg I 149
    Beach Runner 142
    Bac 139
    Bob Wells 139
    LadyD 129

    And as always, if you spot any of my infamous fuzzy math, point it out.

    We are not yet done! I will put up Army/Navy game with some extra points that can be picked up.

    Next 30 days, will post how we get some more entries, maybe even ( lots ) more interest 2019

    Some of you will like it...maybe some not...after all you like do not participate FANTASY FOOTBALL... but millions of others do...

    But I will offer to” keep track” of the results...and it will NOT B FANTASY F$$TBALL...( promise)

    In the meantime...www.cbssports.com.....go to college football where they rank the bowl games...39 teams all in...

    And then scurry on over to sportsline.com, and have a look...

    Next year, thinking AT and Kurt gonna have a heap of “ figuring” raining down on them, as there will be no benefit to when you post...

    ( pretty EZ to figure out what that advantage is) And maybe you’d like me to ‘ splain it...( maybe not)

    Next year, might could take a lot more .....

    REMINDER...AM ONLY LOOKING FOR MORE ENTRIES INTO OUR CONTEST!

    Congrats to this years winners!

    If someone wants Fantasy Football, do it. 30A Skunkape started the pick'ems as a friendly game. There's no point in waiting until the last minute to copy a leader's picks because you can't get ahead of them doing that. There'd be no differentiation. You'd have to pick at least one game differently, and which one(s) would it be? I like Skunky's extra questions. You can't look that up on CBS or Sportsline or Vegas or whatever. I like the way Skunky is doing things.

    Fantasy?

    - My CFB loving arse!

    No , was thinking more along the lines of a “ confidence pool”

    Each week, depending on the number of teams playing, we all still pick winners.

    It’s just we assign a “ value “, say 15-14-13-12..all the way down to...1 point to each of our picks...GUARANTEED to generate some really interesting weekly results...and each week likely to have a different winner...still play for cumulative wins over the course of the season..Just it’s points we are after.

    Moreover, EZ to expand our reach to a more diverse selection of teams both within...and outside of ...the states we presume to be near-and -dear to our football pool loving participants...which hopefully gets us a bunch more participants!

    Our GulfCoast community is far more diverse than mostly just Southern Cooking...way more second-homers than you might imagine...just ask Chamber of Commerce!

    - We still keep a southern flavor, but each week we reach a bit further afield

    And each week, like typical confidence pools, we wait until game day to post everyone’s picks...Still time to “ compare notes”..still time to oogle ( or google) your results as the day unfolds...

    and you you want Fromm,or Army/ Navy yards-from-scrimmage tie breakers...
    NO PROBLEM!

    Bac, you can ‘splain’ it to me because I have no idea wait you mean. I’m pretty sure everyone has the same opportunity to oogle google as the next person and I almost always wait to post the morning of the first game. And by the way I don’t use CBS or Vegas. Curious though, how do you make your picks?

    Good idea.

    Let’s start by looking at what a “ confidence pool” is.

    It depends on how confident you are in each one of your picks...Thus they are not all “ equal”.

    As for CBS or Vegas? Like you say, we can all oogle, or google. Even just the words “ confidence pool” ...

    Making picks for real $$ is a lot different than picking who will win the game, or not.

    A “ confidence pool” serves to bridge the gap, and can involve a bit more effort.

    So...to answer your question...Unless I am traveling for biz, I wager every day. Making picks for real $$ forces me one into a much deeper look at things...including looking several seasons back...And only choosing 1-4 games a day...whether baseball or hockey, whether North, South, East or West...
