jacjar, I won't be able to accept your picks under deadline #3 as you submitted them 2 days past the deadline. Sorry about that. But everything else is entered. With so many games being played, hopefully it won't affect you too much.

Boy am I good at this.

I play ESPN's College Bowl Mania every year, just for fun. I'm a casual fan, so my picks are guesses based on little information. I think it's amusing that currently my rank is 212,307. I started another set of picks, but never got around to submitting them. That one, where I have no picks submitted, is ranked 237,984. :yeah:

Oh, and I picked Arizona, who is getting their tails whipped by Nebraska right now in the 4th. 36 total yards???

RECAPS


If you click on the RECAPS link above, it should lead you to an Excel workbook that breaks down how you got to your score. If you get a password prompt, you should still be able to access the workbook if you click on "cancel."

The workbook is broken down into individual worksheets for the two boards that played this game; Sound Machine (SM) and World of Pageantry (WOP). There are tabs for results for each board, as well as combined, so you can see how you fared overall. I also included a "picks" tab for each board, so you can review the picks and make sure I not only entered your picks correctly, but that I also recorded the correct winning teams for each game, as well as the info for the BQ's. If you see any errors, please don't hesitate to let me know.

If you don't have Excel installed on your computer, you can download a free Excel Viewer from Microsoft here: Excel Viewer
