I'm not trying to argue with you, but these games are hard to run I imagine, and it's pretty standard practice to make a new post if changing picks after your original post was recorded. When he posted this in post #10 (you were post #5)

You had made very few or no picks. At that point, you should have posted a new post if you wanted to make your picks.

Yeah edits are tough to track. I saw Trevor had started his picks at one point, but then forgot to go back and get them when they were completed. That's why the new post is helpful because it gives me easier visibility to when something new comes in. I've added the picks in and we should be good going forward.

I wasn't arguing, I was thanking you.

I was just going by the "edited posts" part of the rules and trying not to clutter the thread. But I'll do it correctly next year.

Top of the Standings

Dr_Evil has moved into a tie with Quake1028 at the top or the standings due to Boston College beating Maryland. MrX is just a game back.

Streaking

MrX is on a 7 game win streak

koops went 0 for Monday and has dropped 4 in a row.

Potential Movers

The Army/North Texas game splits the top of the leaderboard, with Quake1028 and MrX picking Army and Dr_Evil and BrewCrew picking North Texas.

printerati is all alone on Minnesota, so that could be a nice pickup on the field if they pull it out.

Top of the Standings

Quake1028 has regained the lead after a horrific day for heavily favored DVDTalk picks.


Streaking

No one has correctly picked more than 1 game in a row currently.

Jeremy517 and Byron_T have dropped 5 in a row, but many others are on at least 3 game losing streaks.


Potential Movers

The West Virginia/Miami(FL) game is an opportunity for Dr_Evil and MrX to move even with Quake1028. MrX can also pick up a game on Quake1028 if Texas A&M wins.

Re: 15th Annual DVDTalk Bragging Rights Bowl Pickem Championship

I never updated the all time standings at the end of last bowl season. Here are where the standings were at when this bowl season began. I'll update these again at the end of this bowl season.

Re: 15th Annual DVDTalk Bragging Rights Bowl Pickem Championship

The standings have been updated, they were slightly off when I originally posted.

After today, we will have some clarity on who is still in it, and what the winning scenarios are.

Hmmm, my completely random picks aren't paying off as well as they have in the past.

Top of the Standings

Quake1028 has fallen out of first place for the first time this bowl season. We now have a 5 way tie at top, at things have really opened up.


Streaking

HistoryProf is on an impressive 10 game correct streak, and Jeremy517 is on an 8 game streak.

devilshalo has dropped 3 in a row


Potential Movers

I calculate 11 people that can still win. Today's games should cut that down in half if not more.

Still Alive:
Bill Geiger, Quake1028, Redrocker, printerati, davidlynchfan, NORML54601, Dr_Evil, Jeremy517, shizawn, MrX, HistoryProf

There are a few scenarios I could easily see:

Dr_Evil is eliminated with a Clemson loss (can't beat Jeremy517)

History Prof is eliminated with a Louisville or Kentucky loss (can't beat Jeremy517)

davidlynchfan is eliminated with a Louisville AND Kentucky loss (can't beat Dr_Evil)

Dr_Evil is eliminated with a LSU AND Georgia Tech loss (can't beat davidlynchfan)

Redrocker is eliminated with a Kentucky loss (can't beat NORML54601)

Shamus McAnally and NORML54601 have identical picks remaining, they would have to win on a tiebreaker. NORML54601 is first overall in the tiebreaker at 7-2. Shamus McAnally is 4-5 and is therefore eliminated.

Jeremy517 and Kal Varnsen have identical picks remaining, they would have to win on a tiebreaker. They are tied in the initial top 11 team tiebreaker both at 6-3. When we expand the tiebreaker to the next level, the Appalachian State/Toledo game is the only different pick. Jeremy517 correctly picked this game and wins the tiebreaker. Kal Varnsen is eliminated.
