Top of the Standings

Daryl is now 3 games clear at the top with another perfect day of picks yesterday

Streaking

Daryl has a 14 game correct pick streak going

Potential Movers

The only games where significant ground could be made up on Daryl are Kentucky beating Virginia Tech and Navy beating Kansas State. kenbuzz could close the gap to 1 game if both of these games go in his direction.

Re: 18th Annual DVDTalk Bragging Rights Bowl Pickem Championship

I've gone through and did a quick look at who could still win. It's not a very big list.

kenbuzz
Dr_Evil
3nthebag
Bill Geiger
Jeremy517
Daryl

From what I can tell, all of these people still have the possibility to at least tie Daryl.

A Kentucky loss today would eliminate everyone but 3nthebag
A Florida State loss today would eliminate Jeremy517
A Navy loss eliminates everyone but Jeremy517 and 3nthebag.
If both Kentucky and Navy lose 3nthebag is eliminated.

So if Kentucky and Navy lose today, Daryl will be crowned the champion at what I think is our earliest point ever.

Re: 18th Annual DVDTalk Bragging Rights Bowl Pickem Championship

Looks like Daryl has conveniently copied all of my picks today. Lol.

In fact, it looks like he's covered ALL of my future picks except Indiana/Tennessee. So I have to root for the frigging Hoosier football team?!? Lol, okay, I give. 'Grats Daryl.

Yep, that is an elimination game for both of you. You hold the tiebreaker with Daryl due to a better record in the 13 Hardest to Call Games.

Lol - I didn't even look at *MY* picks. Daryl has the Hoo-hoo-hoosiers, while I have Tennessee. And looking at the rest, it seems that I have to have a Tennessee win (to catch Daryl) which is also one of the 2 I need to hold off Bill Geiger (the other being Tulane or LSU), and if I get that, I'll also hold off Dr_Evil and 3inthebag. So it's Tennessee and at least one of Tulane/LSU. Bleh - I gotta root for southern teams. Lol.

Re: 18th Annual DVDTalk Bragging Rights Bowl Pickem Championship

Here's some information on those who can still win and their picks. There are 3 games that will still factor into the Hardest Games Record: Indiana/Tennesseee, Southern Miss/Tulane and LSU/Clemson.

Reminder on the tiebreaking order:
5) If there is a tie, picking the winner of the national championship game will be used as the first tie breaker
6) The second tie breaker will be correctly picking both of the participants of the national championship game
7) Third tiebreaker will be the most correct picks among the 10 Hardest To Call games as determined by DVDTalk. I look at the distribution of DVDTalk picks for all the games, and the 10 that are closest to 50/50 will be used. I'll post the list of games that will be included in this after all the picks are in.
8) If there is still a tie after this, I'll keep adding the next Hardest to Call game, and repeating the process until we have a winner.
9) If somehow there is still a tie, the earliest submitted pick set will be the winner

If Southern Miss wins, then the NC game will determine the winner of this pick 'em. From drama's sake, hope Southern Miss wins.

I had to go back and look at this one. Four people could have won depending on the outcome of the national championship game and the points. It was a bit more fun to have the points involved, but the addition of the playoff made that hard to do not knowing for sure the teams.

That's a wonderful sentiment.... but in light of how dominant Daryl was this bowl season and how he's only out because of an unlikely Tennessee comeback and a pool tie breaker, I really think it would be best for all involved if we acknowledged his amazing run and gave him 2nd place right now.

Go Tulane. You know, for Daryl.
