Hostrauser let me know he has too much on his plate to run a Bowl Game Pool this year, so I’ve decided to throw a pool together for anyone interested in playing. I’m sorry for the short notice, but I really didn’t realize time had gone by so quickly. For that reason, the first deadline only covers a few games, in order to give players a bit of breathing room to make picks. So even if people miss the first set of games, there’s still a reasonable amount of time to get ready and start picking and not lose out too much if you still want to jump in and play.

After the Game Open Announcement is posted, please post your picks indicating the Deadline group you are posting under. You’d probably make it a lot easier on me if you copy/paste each group with the bowl game name and opponents, and then just delete the team you aren’t picking to win. Please post them as I listed them. For instance, if you post “Lions, Tigers or Bears” I’m gonna have a hard time knowing who you’ve picked, since I’m not as keen on all the college teams mascots as I am in the NFL.


SCORING
I’ll be using the same scoring format as in the NFL pool, where at the end you get score based on the percentage of points you earned versus the total available points to earn.

Each correctly picked game will be worth 40 points, with the exception of the following:
Rose Bowl, Sugar Bowl, Orange Bowl, and Fiesta Bowl are worth 50 points if picked correctly. The BCS Championship game is worth 75 points if picked correctly.

Bonus Questions are scored as follows:
Point Spread guesses are worth 10 points maximum, minus the variance of your guess from the actual point spread of each game.
Final Total Points are worth 15 points maximum, minus the variance of your guess from the actual points scored in each game.


Deadline Clarification
For each deadline, you have up until Midnight Pacific time to get your picks in on that given day. Please also take note that the Bonus Questions are also broken up into two groups.

Official Game Open Announcement to follow:
