RealGM Bowl Mania Pick'em 

Post#1 » by bleu » Wed Dec 7, 2016 7:12 pm

I've created a group on the ESPN Bowl Mania game specifically for RealGM posters, I hope that you guys will come join me and make your picks for official, indisputable bragging rights.

If you have an ESPN account (or if you don't, just make one), log in and click on the following link. The group password is RealGM

http://games.espn.com/college-bowl-mania/en/group?invitesource=email&groupID=134307&inviteuser=ezAzODNGQTE2LTQzNzktNEE2Ny1BMzkyLThCNzMyMDlFQTE5QX0%3D&ex_cid=ex_cid%3Dbowlmania2016_email&groupp=UmVhbEdN

This is a "confidence" league, meaning that instead of every picking counting for the same amount of points, you set how confident you are with each bowl game pick 1-40. Your #1 confidence will get you 40 points if you are correct. #2 will get you 39 points. So on, so forth. Your least confident pick will only be worth 1 point, so it doesn't cost you nearly as much if you miss on a pick that you're really unsure about.

Please join and encourage other RealGM posters to get in on the action as well!

Glad to have ya!

Yeah, there are a ton of bowls. And it's hard to get too excited about Army and North Texas. But should be fun regardless.

Yes, I usually make picks quickly but thought "I'll have to come back". I'm sure having the confidence thing with 40 bowls will deter a lot of people because it will be a bit time consuming.

I made my picks but I am far too lazy to change the games on confidence points, so I just left everything where it was.

Just a reminder for anyone hoping to join the Pick'em challenge, entries need to be filled out before the first bowl game kicks off tomorrow morning

I was the same way pretty much, and so far I hit all the January games, so in the last 4 I got 38. 39, 40 and 41 points, yet I am still in 3rd to last. I have 42 riding on the last one, but that would only jump me to 4th, and probably worse if anyone else got the final game right and some points with it.

Looks like with just the National Championship remaining I'm 3rd of 8 in the group. Not terrible, I'll take it.

Hermes, on the other hand, needs to take his talents to Las Vegas. Dude is at 93% right now!

Yeah the Last 6 games or so really skyrocketed my score. I got them pretty much all right except my Buckeyes ( :nonono: )
I'm somehow 2nd now, but it looks like I can't reach #1 since I'm more than 42 points out. I have Bama winning it all, so my odds of finishing 2nd are still pretty solid. At worse looks like I will finished 3rd if Bleu picked Clemson to win it all.
