    I assume we can't make picks until the last bowl game is set?

    You would assume correctly. How could you?

    You'll see it, but since I'm a nice guy, I'll remind.

    Note:

    The EagleBank Bowl match up won't be determined until after the Army vs. Navy game on Dec 12. Please come back after that game to make your pick for the EagleBank Bowl.
    In a classic example of how screwed up BCS is, Number 5 Florida is a 10 point favorite over Number 4 Cincinnati.

    Well... that the difference between what the computers say, and what the betting establishment thinks it will take to get Mr. Average Joe Six Pack to bet on Cincy.

    And I sure hope that I remember to go back and make my last pick after the Navy/Army game

    Yeah, the Bears are only 2.5 point dogs this weekend. The Packers are much better than that but all the Chicago money on the Bears, brings it down.

    But seriously, with the reduced number of posters, it's good to have multiple sites involved in the pools/games. The FFZ crowd provides the Poly games with extra people to make things more exciting, and the same for FFZ pools. Over at FFZ, the fantasy golf and other games were better because of the Poly participation.

    The real secret is, start the pool/game first here, and then have somebody post the link over there. That way, they will be "named" Poly games

    You just have to be quicker
