NOTICE

The ‘joker’ function seems to work only once per pool (not per ‘Match Type’ as I had hoped).1  Therefore, in lieu of clicking the joker button, please specify your ‘pick of the week’ in the comment section (as JMac did below).  Gracias.

 

  1. I have confirmed with the developer that there is only one joker per pool, bummer. [back]
  • Matt Borcas

    Final two picks are Ark. St. and FSU. I don’t like either of them but at this point I need to do whatever Zara’s not doing. FSU as joker, please.

  • my last joker is ball st.
    i’m transcribing this into a spreadsheet; should have it up today.

  • Aesculus

    I am not the only one who remembers that it was CLEMSON and “The Punch” that ended Coach Hayes’ legendary career.

  • Aesculus

    Oklahoma State wins
    Buckeyes win
    Vanderbilt wins
    Ball State winner
    Florida State wins

  • thatsfine

    Final round picks
    Oklahoma (win)
    OK State +1.5
    tOSU -2.5
    Commies -2.5
    Ark. St +7.5
    Auburn +8.5
    Joker OK State. Missouri’s D got seriously exposed against Auburn. OK State has a QB who can run it, they have firepower at receiver. Even with 60% public on MIzzou the last line I saw on this had OK State -2.5, so +1.5 is a four point bargain that I will gladly take.

    Ok… not sure what the process is here so here goes:

    NYD joker was Michigan State.

    NYD picks were:
    Nebraska (win)
    UNLV (lose)
    South Carolina (win)
    LSU (push)
    Michigan State (joker win)
    Baylor (lose)

    Post-NYD picks are:

    Oklahoma (win)
    Mizzou
    Ohio State
    Vandy
    Ball St – shout out to the MAC
    Florida State (joker!)

    Why will Florida St win? It’s not because my friend earned his PhD there. Nope, they’ll win because they have an exciting team that can put up points like they had a giant bag of points they had to get rid of in order to inherit $300 million. Auburn is a good team that needed the home crowd and some unbelievable luck to beat a ‘Bama team that’s lost a few steps as last night’s game showed. I’m not saying Auburn doesn’t deserve to be in the BCS title conversation, because they should, but I think they’ll have their hands full against Florida St.

  • zarathustra

    My remaking picks are:
    Okie St
    Clemson
    Vandy
    ball st
    auburn
    final joker play is Clemson because for as much as I would like to fade the acc I would much rather wager against this shitty buckeye d.

  • i’ll take UCF for the NYD joker.

  • harbaugh handshakes

    I’ll essay Stanford -6…Stanford is a much better team than Ostate and I still think O state is better than MSU. If Urban doesn’t compelety abandon Carlos we win that game,,,He panicked and went to braxton on 4th down…sigh…Anyway David Shaw is a great coach and his team wins big games.

  • Jonathan MacDonald

    MSU is my essay for New Year’s Day. They beat sever good teams this year. I’m not looking forward to Rutgers competing against them in the Big Ten.

  • Matt Borcas

    My NYD joker/essay is Michigan State.

  • thatsfine

    My New Year’s Joker – UNLV.

  • zarathustra

    I was going to go with UNT here, but I am nursing abit of a crush on this unlv team and they have tremendous back door potential. Instead I will go with sparty because I love Dantonio and will cling to any manifestation of tresselball that exists in these dark days of college football where its beauty is all but forgotten.

  • Capitalgg

    NYD Joker = Baylor.

  • shoot. i meant to enter missyst but it didn’t register. i will therefore pick.. DUKE +12!!

  • Matt Borcas

    Will take UCLA as my NYE essay. VT has regressed over the course of the season (so much so that Haslam would can Frank Beamer’s ass if he were the Hokies’ AD), whereas the Bruins have finished strong and also have better players.

  • thatsfine

    Let’s make BC+7.5 my essay. This team has senior leadership, won 4 of 5 to finish the season, and has Andre Williams in the backfield. They are evenly matched with Arizona and this should be a great game. The Eagles should cover +7.5.

  • Essay Tejas for NYE.

  • actovegin1armstrong

    I would like Rice for my essay. Will you please add red beans with that as well?

  • Matt Borcas

    12/30 picks:

    Navy -6.5 over MTSU
    GT +3 over Ole Miss
    Texas +14.5 over Oregon
    ASU -14 over TTu

    joker coming tomorrow…

  • harbaugh handshakes

    I’ll take Navy as my NYE essay. Honestly a lot of guys in the playoff hunt are riding with them, so what the hell.

  • zarathustra

    Navy for third essay. It may not be a perfect comp, but I have memories of the byu/middle tennessee game. Byu ran all over them and I expect navy to do the same today. The byu d is admittedly far superior to the navy d, but I think the navy d will be good enough to beat the number.

  • Jonathan MacDonald

    NYE Essay – Texas A&M over Duke – thanks!

  • Guest

    thanks guys, i’m logging. sorry for the inconveniences.

  • Matt Borcas

    I’ll take Kansas St. as my post-Christmas essay.

  • zarathustra

    I love what al golden has done with the canes and if they were healthy I would probably take them here. but they’re not. I’ll wager that teddy and coach strong leave Louisville w/ a blowout.

    • zarathustra

      Just to clarify, that was for my post Christmas joker play.

  • I want Minnesota as my post-Christmas essay as well.

    • Nevermind, please make that Michigan, please. Thanks.

      • Sorry to keep changing but this slate of games is really terrible. I’ll settle on BYU, who is traditionally solid in bowl games under Bronco Mendenhall. The fading of coaching changes is an often overplayed strategy (see USC last week) but I think the Huskies will miss Sark tonight.

  • thatsfine

    Let’s make Pitt my +2. BGSU has looked great against the MAC, but I think it’s been established that the MAC is in a down year. BG just lost their coach, and the new guy said “things are going to be different now” or something like that. Well, they were beating the crap out of MAC teams. Different doesn’t sound good to me.

  • Capitalgg

    Changed my mind about playing NIU-USU, but it won’t delete the score.

    2nd batch joker = Minnesota.

  • Jonathan MacDonald

    Joker button isn’t working for me for week 2… please put Louisville as my essay pick – thanks!

    • I’m seeing the same here. Yes, just note your ‘essay/joker’ here in these comments. Thanks.

  • thatsfine

    @thatsfine:disqus
    WSU -4 (essay) – The Rams can’t stop the pass, and that is literally the only thing WSU does. Entering it here because I can’t get the essay field to work.

  • zarathustra

    I think Aztecs are the better team and don’t don’t trust buffalo to travel well.
