Apologies for not getting this up sooner but had some computer issues.  Here we are again at my favourite time of the year - xmas and college football - fantastic Cool

Keeping the rules simple: 1 point for getting the match odds correct and 1 point for getting the hcap correct. A bonus point for getting both right. For the very first playoff year I think we should add a little incentive to get those choices correct. So, 2 points will be available for the match odds and hcap line in the semis. 5 points available in the final on each line. Bonuses for getting both the ML and hcap right will also carry 2 and 5 points respectively. I figure this gives some incentive to anyone that is trailing towards the end of the comp and keeps it competitive.

Any questions, jut put them up here.

Here are the first bunch of games:

DEC 20

Nevada (-1.5) v Louisiana Tech
South Alabama (-2.5) v Bowling Green
Utah (-10.5) v UTEP
Utah (-4.5) v Colorado State
Western Michigan (-1.5) v Air Force

I'll start off with these picks:

Louisiana Tech ML and hcap
Bowling Green ML and hcap
Utah ML UTEP hcap
Utah ML and hcap
Air Force ML and hcap

Good luck all and happy xmas/football season Happy

Louisiana Tech are the only ones I have seen play this season so pretty much guesswork Grin

I have seen the two Utah teams a bit. But yeah, for the early bowls it's normally more guesswork lol. Just the 3 of us right now Cry

Wow what an ending. Central Michigan is down five touchdowns going into the fourth quarter, gets five TDs including a wild hail mary with no time left, only to lose after going for two and failing to convert.
Report curious-cat December 24, 2014 8:54 PM GMT
thanks Rico88 ........... I was busy getting my laptop and missed the attempted 2 points.

surprised they didn't settle for OT.

THOUGH AFTER THAT COMEBACK THEY MUST HAVE THOUGHT THEY WERE ABLE TO WALK ON WATER !
Report Rico88 December 24, 2014 9:05 PM GMT
Yeah I agree, they probably felt it was theirs for the taking at that point.

Personally I would've kicked the extra point and gone to OT. Sometimes I see the logic for going for the kill with the 2-point conversion, like if you're an inferior team, defense is tired, etc. But with the way that game was going, with Western Kentucky completely rattled (and with a bad kicker I may add - potentially a factor in OT), I liked the Chippewas chances in the overtime.

Ah well, great ending nonetheless. Love bowl games like that.
