Okay so here's how it works. Make your picks for the 2011-12 college football bowls and I will keep track of your wins here in the OP. Please copy and paste the list I have below, just to keep some uniformity to it. Bold your picks out of the different games. I will record your user names and numbers.

Also, please limit your posts in this thread to one, for your picks. All other discussion of the actual games, check out and post in the college football thread in this forum.

Of course this is for-fun, though I'm considering sending a book or journal or something to the winner as a gift. Depends on if I have money for stamps after grad school applications. If anyone else has a fun prize they'd like to donate that could be cool, too.

Sign-ups end at kickoff of the first bowl game.

Either way, let's get this started.

You might be this year. Since the championship game is a rematch, there's not really a lot at risk.

Yeah, most of the games aren't super exciting. But still, a just-for-fun pick'em could be a good way to close out the season, which I might remind will not return until next Fall...

YES! Absolutely. RTR!

I was at that fateful game, and I can pinpoint several instances that would've changed the outcome to our favor. You can't make mistakes like we did when you're playing a team like LSU. But, we won't make them again!
