Man, most of the games are predicted to be so close! And the odds I've seen say Bama is favored by 1. Cnestg8r and I are Tulane grads, but I'm for everyone who plays Bama. Sorry, Darlene. :blush:

Tangent: Big athletic announcement at Tulane. Just got this email:
Please join us for a historic announcement today at 1:30 p.m. in the atrium of the James W. Wilson Jr. Center. For those unable to attend, you can follow the live stream on http://www.tulanegreenwave.com/

EDIT: Tulane is building a football stadium on campus! Yay! It will cost 70 million; the board has already pledged 40 million.

Great news. Now they actually have a shot at building a well supported program. I don't know if you ever saw a Tulane game in the Superdome, but they had all the atmosphere of empty catacombs. I guess you saw they hired a new head coach, got him off the Saints staff.

Tulane didn't start having games at the Superdome until after we left. I loved rolling out of the dorm, pre-gaming at the Sammies and SAE houses, then walking a few blocks to the Sugar Bowl, then after-partying at Sammies and SAE. Fun times.

I hope the new coach can recoup the 70 million. He looked really awkward in the video. What's up with that? If Tulane wants a successful athletic program, they need a coaching or exercise science major so that many athletes can pass. Hubby, no prob. He was the first Tulane athlete to graduate in engineering. He also got full academic scholarships in the Ivys. A perfect 800 in SAT quantitative and in the SAT II in math helps.
 
Don't forget to make your bowl picks!

Yes, I realize that it looks like I'm having conversations with myself. JK. :rotfl:

The bowl games start on Saturday. Make your picks by Saturday at 9 AM CST. ALL PICKS FOR ALL BOWL GAMES ARE DUE BY THEN. There are too many bowl games to have to record the picks piecemeal. There are some really close games predicted.

Note that Iris is the regular season champ. There will also be a separate bowl champ. And the overall champ will be the winner of the regular season plus the bowls.

So invite your friends to play the bowl games. Even if they didn't play in the regular season, they could still be the bowl champ.

BTW Iris won 67.1% of her picks in the regular season. Assuming that she wins the same percentage of the bowl games, to beat her as overall champ you need to look at how many games behind her you are (for example, cnestg8r is 9 behind) and add 26 to that number.

Happy picking!
