BCS time, people. Let's pick some games.

Hello all,

It's bowl season, so I'm doing a college football pick'em. The details for joining are below.

I've set it up at Yahoo! Fantasy Sports.

Nothing there to sweeten the pot?

I'll throw in some taters.

Nah. It's just for bragging rights this season.

Perhaps, in future seasons, we can have a virtual trophy that you can add to your profile. We should call it the Howie Cup.

I'm in.

I will also buy the winner a drink if you come to DC.

I expect the same treatment. I like Schlitz, Schaefer and Wild Turkey.

I'll throw in some taters.

Wait...you can throw them? I thought at best they could be jiggled or flexed.

I'm in. Good idea for the trophy btw.

I am in! I always start out really well, then my final four invariably get beaten in the round of 8. Invariably. Stupid ACC.

.... and my brain was thinking of basketball rather than bowl games. Oy.

I WANT A PLAY-OFF.

So, let's see, in the first round we've got Oregon/Texas and Florida/TCU

I can't wait to see the match-ups this weekend and see how my bracket does.

The college football playoff is so exciting!

Sigh.

Sure, I'll take a stab at it.

None of you are making any sense.

I'm in, thus softening the curve for the rest of you.

I'm not in, since I know almost nothing about college football. But I am oddly proud that my Alma Mater, Temple University, is going to a bowl game for the first time in a million billion years or so. Go Owls!

Sure, why not. I don't really watch much college football, so I should do pretty well.

That's the nice thing about Pick'Em--you can wait until close to the deadline, then use the wisdom-of-crowds/kindness-of-strangers approach.

Wyoming is so going to beat Fresno State. I don't care what the "experts" say.

I'll go in, even though Pitt ended up in the the Pine-Scented Car Freshener Bowl or some such.

I'm in. I'll sweeten the pot by promising no to shit in any of the winner's threads for an entire year. If I win, I get free reign. A full year of thread-shitting without the threat of banishment. Also, I get to use the IMG tag. Deal?

If only to support my Hogs with 100% confidence of their victory over the Purple Pirates... we can't lose to a team called the Purple Pirates.

Fantasy Sports: Banana Slugs v Jumbos in the High Times Bowl. (No, not UCSB v Tufts... I mean real banana slugs v one big elephant. While baked. It's my fantasy....)

Alabama beats Texas, wins BCS Championship, order restored to universe.

The rest is irrelevant.

Roses for the Ducks

I've got a bad feeling about my Yellow Jackets taking on Iowa, but better them than TCU I suppose.
