Top of the Standings
Bill Geiger has pulled ahead of koops and everyone else and is all alone atop the standings

Streaking
kenbuzz, Trevor and HistoryProf all went 3 for 3 yesterday on a tough day of picking and are riding 3 game correct streaks

Sonny Corinthos is actually on a very impressive 13 game slide. It's just as hard to pick them all wrong as it is to pick them all right. Sonny's picks today are Cincinnati, Arizona State, South Carolina, Penn State, and USC, so get nervous if you have picked any of those teams.

Potential Movers
With 5 games today, including a true tossup in Miamia/South Carolina, everyone still has a chance to move up. Those 4 people picking Duke will also see a nice bump if they can pull it out.

Re: 13th Annual DVDTalk Bragging Rights Bowl Pickem Championship

Dammit, I share two picks with Sonny C.... and just as I was hoping to close in on the lead.

Question - I note that all of the bowl games exclude the possibility of any of them ending in a tie. That's probably okay since (a) college games don't end in ties, and (b) hdmickey isn't a subscriber to this thread. But just in case, I'll add a disclaimer to this post.

ALL OF THE ABOVE IGNORES THE POSSIBILITY OF A GAME ENDING IN A TIE

Top of the Standings
Bill Geiger survives the 5 game Saturday and remains alone atop the standings

Streaking
After a 14 game losing streak, Sonny Corinthos turned things around yesterday and is now on a 4 game winning streak. sleepyhead55, Bill Geiger and shizawn are also on 4 game win streaks.

koops has cooled a bit from a hot start, and is now on a 3 game losing streak.

Potential Movers
Bill Geiger picked Texas who is a pretty big DVDTalk underdog, so that could be an opening for those a couple games back.

Top of the Standings
Bill Geiger has had his lead trimmed down to 1, but remains on top

Streaking
BrewCrew has picked the last 4 games correctly

HistoryProf has had a rough two days and is on a 6 game slide.

Potential Movers
Bill Geiger picked Georgia Tech and Boise State who are pretty big DVDTalk underdogs, so that could be an opening for those a couple games back. Boise State is actually picked by the top 4 in the standings now, so we could see some big shakeups, or a further separation at the top. Lots of underdog picks in the top 4 today.

Re: 13th Annual DVDTalk Bragging Rights Bowl Pickem Championship

No problem. The updates have been a little more scarce this year, since I have a new baby at home, but I'm trying to get them out as often as I can. My spreadsheets make it pretty easy to crank through an update, most of the time spent is formatting to get it to look nice when I post it.

Re: 13th Annual DVDTalk Bragging Rights Bowl Pickem Championship

The TrevGeigerBuzz train appears to be leaving the station.... two game lead on the pack, and all three have picked the same teams today except for the Sugar Bowl:

Bill Geiger:
Auburn
Baylor
Missouri
Oregon
Alabama

Trevor & kenbuzz:
Auburn
Baylor
Missouri
Oregon
Ohio State

Unless there are a lot of upsets today, the pool might be all but over with a Bama win tonight.... or a three-way dead heat if tOSU prevails.

Bill Geiger aka The Bowl Whisperer, went 3 for 3 yesterday and remains on top. kenbuzz and Trevor were also 3 for 3, so we still have a battle at the top.

Streaking
Bill Geiger, kenbuzz, Trevor and jasondaub are all on 5 game correct streaks

BrewCrew, LurkerDan and Supr_65 missed all the games yesterday and are on 3 game losing streaks.

Potential Movers
As kenbuzz pointed out, the Alabama/tOSU game is a big one for the people at the top.

Unless there are a lot of upsets today, the pool might be all but over with a Bama win tonight.... or a three-way dead heat if tOSU prevails.
You and Trevor actually have the same picks all the way up to the national championship game(Oregon for Trevor, Ohio State for kenbuzz). Bill Geiger differs on a few picks through there. Relevant games between you three are

Ohio State(t,k)/Alabama(BG)
Iowa(BG)/Tennessee(t,k)
Florida(t,k)/East Carolina(BG)
Arkansas State(BG)/Toledo(t,k)
National Championship Game Ohio State (k), Oregon (BG,T)

A lot could still happen. Even sleepyhead55 at 12-15 seems to still be alive since he picked every game different from you and Trevor today, and has enough different picks in the future. We should have a better idea of who is alive after today's games.

Yeah not too bad. Thanks. Auburn needs to regain this lead. Baylor looks like a win.

Just like the year I won, I wish I had out some money down on these games.

Welcome to the party, Byron.

Wisconsin kicks a FG in OT to beat Auburn.
Baylor gives up 21 in the 4th Q to lose by one to Sparty.
Wow.

Alabama win = 1) Billy G; 2) Byron (1 GB); 3) kenbuzz=Trevor=jasondaub (2 GB)
Ohio State win = 1) Billy G=Trevor=kenbuzz; 4) Byron (1 GB); 5) jasondaub (2 GB)

The Pitt game is a must win for koops and shizawn. Byron_T needs Pitt or UCLA to win. The trio at the top can't be knocked out today.
