Re: 16th Annual DVDTalk Bragging Rights Bowl Pickem Championship

I'm trying NOT to follow along because, at least as of the latest completed game, I think this is the worst I've ever done. I keep hoping maybe if I forget about it, I'll get one big day that will get me back to .500 for the year. (But, each passing day where I drift further and further away from it, the likelihood gets even worse.)

Holy shit! I'll pick a Big XII team over Mizzou any freakin' day of the week, so that helped.

But of course I NEVER win money when I bet on sports in a sports book.

Re: 16th Annual DVDTalk Bragging Rights Bowl Pickem Championship

Was selfishly hoping for a daily update, as I think I went 5-0 and climbed to within a game of the lead last night. Will never keep it up, and wanted a screenshot to post on my wall of (non) accomplishments.

Re: 16th Annual DVDTalk Bragging Rights Bowl Pickem Championship

I'll try and post picks of those remaining and elimination scenarios later.

LurkerDan is only one game back but has identical picks to Shamus McAnally left.

Any chance of a quick summary of the race for last?

Re: 16th Annual DVDTalk Bragging Rights Bowl Pickem Championship

Quick update after first days result, South Carolina’s upset of Michigan. Game two won’t matter as we all picked Auburn.
We only have 2 days of games left, a total of 6 games. Here is who can still win as far as I can tell.

Trevor. 24-12
davidlynchfan. 22-14
MrX. 21-15
grip. 22-14
Shamus McAnally. 24-12
Decker. 23-13

Looks like we’re down to 4 contenders, with Mr X and davidlynchfan now out; and unless GA/AL both win tonight we’re going to the Championship game to decide.

You couldn't write a better script. Start out poorly (like usual), storm back to take first place, only to go ofer on the last day (pending the probable Bama upset of Clemson) and not win. I really hate sports.

Re: 16th Annual DVDTalk Bragging Rights Bowl Pickem Championship

I feel like I jinxed myself. If I hadn’t posted a few days ago, there would have been multiple daily updates detailing my miraculous rise to the top. The 13 out of 15 in a row to come from 4 games back, the potential to have the best margin of victory in DVDTalk history, one of only two to pick the championship game participants; these would have sounded so much better coming from a neutral party.

I have not tracked how I did yesterday, but since I know you had all the same picks as me, I went 0-fer!

There were at least 6 or 7 people who had 5 losses on New Year's.

Re: 16th Annual DVDTalk Bragging Rights Bowl Pickem Championship

Looks like an Alabama win would vault Mr X (one of my favorite comic books) from 5th/8th place all the way to 2nd.

Quoting just in case a counting error takes away my first ever DVDTalk sports win:
