    After two days of bowl games, the illustrious kp leads the pack with 8-1 record. Close behind are Linda Williams & Stu with 7-2 points.

    I am embarrassed by my finish in the regular season contest and bewildered by my performance in the bowl contest. I honestly have no idea why I picked any of those teams so far. I know nothing about them except Florida.

    I think I can honestly say that we are all united in our desire to ease KP's pain.

    I've turned in a solid 21-21 effort. I am very grateful for AJ.

    Just a reminder, when you made your initial picks the TCU/UGA game was not available. You have to go back and make a pick for the championship game.

    Right now it's 80% UGA ...so not many are giving TCU a chance.

    Just a suggestion here, but if I pick Georgia, I guarantee you Georgia will lose. :)

    Just curious but any particular reason for the dislike of Georgia?

    Not by me. A close friend's daughter swam for Georgia a number of years ago, and they hired Tom Crean when he left IU. For those reasons, I like GA.

    Fair enough. I have a particular coach I just don't like and I always root against him.
