    BG College Football Bowl Mania (and post-season discussion thread)

    The most wonderful time of the year (college football season) is coming to a close, and now we have a few awesome games, a handful of good games, and a bunch of mediocre games left to watch between now and January 6th or so.

    However, we can celebrate by playing Bowl Mania again! Pick the winners of all 35 games, rank them 1-35 by confidence (more points > more confident about the winner). At the end of bowl season, the person with the most points wins. So you only really have to worry about this once.

    The home page is: http://games.espn.go.com/college-bow...a/2013/en/game

    If you were in the league last year, I believe you can just click the "Rejoin" button.

    If you have any problems or questions, let me know, either by posting here or a PM through this website.

    Couple of notes: it's going to lock once the first game starts, so get in before then. One entry per person. It would be helpful to put your BG user name in your team name so we know who you are...or post it on the league message board or post it here or something, so I can get your name right in the list of pretentious jerks below.

    Meh.. we got robbed on bowl selection, but at least it's a team that we should beat. We don't have a very good bowl win streak, but I'd be devastated if we lost to Syracuse.

    I didn't think it was that bad until she kept pressing, and he responded perfectly by answering well until it was clear she wanted to be the story then walking away.


    anyway...


    K-State vs Michigan in BWW bowl... should be pretty damn interesting, really.

    There's actually a bunch of really interesting games this year, much more so than usual.

    only reason brady hoke wanted to go to the buffalo wild wings bowl is so he can gorge on chicken wings like the fat fuck he is

    Yes, that is a list of Heisman winners. (If the "lol" is for Reggie Bush's absence, that should be obvious. If I'm missing something, then lol at me I guess.)

    I'm pretty certain Tim Tebow is the only person on that list to have won a playoff game.

    It's not really surprising. The last 15-20 years or so, most of the Heisman winners haven't ended up doing very well in the NFL.

    Ingram too, probably -- but does he already have one?

    Boise State opened as a 3 point favorite in the Hawaii bowl. 4 hours later, Oregon State was a 2.5 point favorite.

    That's some crazy line movement.

    I think he was inactive for their playoff win in 2011. He didn't get a carry and was not targeted with a pass, in any event.

    Yes, it's for Bush not being on there. It's just funny to me that they show it with 2005 just completely removed.
