    Kp, did you receive the invite to register? You are not showing up in the group I created this morning. However you are registered in a prior private group by the same name from two years ago.

    There is definitely some confusion here. I am suggesting everyone rejoin Group 4229907, password DB1958 Unfortunately that option was not available when I created the second group this morning called Skyboxers as well. Another suggestion would be two have two separate contests? Passwords would be different (DB58)

    Yeah I got the email saying that you invited me to join the Skyboxers and clicked on that button.

    Don, it appears that I'm in 2 Skyboxer leagues, the current one #4229907 and one that just says Skyboxers without a number. Is there a way to remove the one that's not current?

    Sid, ESPN will not allow me to delete the entry with no number. Not even sure what happened, but the 4229907 is the official entry. Sorry for the confusion. Yahoo is not offering any bowl entries this year!

    No problem at all Don. I’ll try to withdraw. If that doesn’t work, I’ll just have 2 entries with the same picks. Thanks for taking charge.

    I think I’m in but DB1958 didn’t work. Used my own yahoo password and got in.

    All the bowl games but the playoffs are really cheapened by star players going to the portal or getting ready for NFL. (Mr. Obvious here). Even some coaches. (See Purdue last year)

    Scott has joined and we now have eight members. Cindy enrolled in the other group and I am awaiting her enrollment here. She will be deleted from the other group and it will become dormant. ESPN will not let anyone delete a group until the following season.

    Hopefully more of the group will be enrolling soon. Individuals are permitted have up to three entries if they choose. Bowl games will commence Saturday, December 16th. Anyone joining the contest, please enroll in Skyboxers #4229907

    Thanks, Don. I'll pass on a 2nd and 3rd entry. Too confusing for my feeble (and getting feebler) brain. :confused:

    Sid this caught me by surprise, a default setting by ESPN. Too much for me also:)
