Fourth Annual DVDTalk Bragging Rights Bowl Pickem Championship

Since the first bowl game is only a few days away it is time to lay your ego on the line and make some picks. Before we begin, lets pay tribute to our past winners:

Last year's challenge won by clemente in a tiebreaker
Second annual event won by Supr_65
Innaguaral challenge won by brizz


The winner of this challenge will receive bragging rights for the year and a place in DVDTalk Sports Forum history. Feel free to make side bets for signatures and what not. Whether you stick to them is up to you .

The rules are as follows:
1) You must enter all of your picks before the first game (Dec 20, New Orleans Bowl). If you enter your picks late, you will be given a loss for any games that have already started.
2) If you edit your post after the first game starts, you will be disqualified
3) Please post your predictions in chronological order (the way I list them below) for ease of scoring
4) The winner will be the person with the most number of games correctly picked
5) If there is a tie, picking the winner of the national championship game (USC/Texas) will be used as the first tie breaker
6) The second tie breaker will be the score of the national championship game. The closest score, either over or under the actual score will be declared the winner.
7) The third tiebreaker will be the most correct picks in BCS games.

Here is an easy cut and paste version of the games followed by a more detailed schedule.

If Ohio State beats Miami, I'll never post again on DVD Talk. That's how sure I am that OSU doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell of beating Miami. (posted 2002 pre-Fiesta Bowl)

Yep, I didn't want to step on any toes doing this. I just saw it was getting close and hadn't been started. Hopefully next year you'll have the time to take it back over.

It's also run automatically on ESPN.com. We could have gone that route as well.
