2021 BOWL PICK'EM

Post by AGinNEIowa » December 7th, 2021, 8:51 pm

First off - Congrats again to the Weekly and Kickoff winners!

@isrred won KICKOFF PICK'EM with 46 of 75
@Dwigt won both WEEKLY PICK'EM with 125 of 191 and Who The Hell Cares Game with 11 of 14.

BOWL PICK'EM is posted.
I have all 44 games, includes the CELEBRATION BOWL featuring FCS teams - SWAC vs MEAC champions.
The 44th game is the CFP final - don't pick that game until after the new year when we know the participants.
TIEBREAKER - sum of scores in the NY6 Bowl games PLUS the CFP Final. Currently the Over/Under for the 6 games is 326.5 based on ESPN's Scores page. Remember, your score will include 7 games -total points scored.
DEADLINE for all other games and the TIEBREAKER is SATURDAY DECEMBER 18 at 10 AM, but 3 games kickoff before that time (2 on Friday 12/17). Any picks entered after those kickoffs will not count.

GOOD LUCK !!!

THE MEAC CHAMPIONS -SOUTH CAROLINA STATE BULLDOGS went 6-5 this year and undefeated in conference play with 5 wins. Freshman RB Kendrell Flowers rushed for 983 yards on 130 attempts and Senior LB Chad Gilchrist had 40 solo tackles with 30 assisted tackles. The Bulldogs lost at Clemson 3-49 in week 2 and at NMSU 35-43 in week 3.
THE SWAC CHAMPIONS -JACKSON STATE DANCING NEONS -er, wait - TIGERS went 11-1 this year and undefeated in conference play with 8 wins. Freshman QB Shedeur Sanders threw for 3,056 yards on 256-377 attempts with 29 TD and 6 INT. Senior LB Aubrey Miller, Jr had 49 solo tackles with 51 assisted tackles. The Tigers lost at Louisiana-Monroe 7-12 in week 3.

AGinNEIowa,

Thank you for putting this together again. I may not win as much as I would like and I enjoy doing pick ‘Ems.

Glad you enjoy it!
I would be awesome to see the wildcats and panthers face off again so we could have a WTHCG that you and I care about!

UNH head coach Sean McDonnell retired after the season. A former UNH QB Rick Santos as named new coach. Kind of an unknown. UNI vsUNH would be great.

I think he was QB when they played in CF during the playoffs- 2007?
if memory serves, panthers won by 3 a game in the 30's in the playoffs - was that him?

Yes, Ricky Santos was UNH QB for the 35-38 loss to UNI. He has been involved with UNH football recently. I hope UNH can get back into FCS playoffs.

Not sure what to do....
I looked at my other pool which is run through pooltracker.com - they're counting it as cancelled.
Games with different matchups Any games that only have 1 of the original teams will be considered a canceled game. ie. Any bowl games or basketball games with substituted teams will fall under our canceled game policy.
any other thoughts from the other 20 participants?

I'm not a participant so no skin in the game but if the opponent changes it should count as though it didn't happen. It's the most fair way

I wish they would have gone for the 1st down instead of punting it away. I wish they wouldn't have given up the late td. I wish they wouldn't have thrown the int to end the game. Total bummer.

@isrred is the Bowl Pick'em winner with 25 correct picks out of the 37 games
with a very strong finish - he got the last 7 games and 9 of the last 10 correct to get the win by Tiebreaker.

@AngusAg and @sam tingey were also tied for first.

The 7-game tiebreaker came in at 374 points - isrred had picked 421, AngusAg had picked 446 and sam tingey had 440.

I don't recall a season where we had someone win two of the contests, and this year we had 2.
isrred won the bookends, Kickoff and Bowls while @Dwigt won both the weekly and WTHCG.

Thanks for a great season!
