3rd Annual Rock M Nation Bowl Pick 'Em Contest

UPDATE: BUMPED BACK TO THE TOP OF THE PAGE.  PICKS ARE DUE AT NOON TOMORROW.

That's right loyal readers...the Bowl Pick 'Em Contest is back for its third season.

It is simple to participate.  Simply reply to this thread with your picks.  You will need to pick both against the spread, as well as the over/under, so you will have two picks per game.  The spreads are LOCKED, so a movement in the line will not be taken into account.  The spreads are courtesy of bookmaker.com because...well...that's the one I could find (and unless otherwise noted) They also represent where the lines were when they opened, which was a week ago (had to wait for Army/Navy to be played to determine Eagle Bowl and Texas Bowl line)

Our winner from last year is FSUncensored, who went 39-27 to win by three games over The Cool Alonzo and myself.  All time, MU 1839 (our first winner) holds the best two-year record at 18 games over .500 (74-56).  Of the "couples" category, The Beef and Tailgate Queen came out 3 game ahead of Bill C and Bill C's wife last year, tying their annual battle at 1-1.   Overall, the contest generated a won-loss record of  1066-1244 for a not so good percentage of .461.  Over the two years, we currently sit at 1711-1879 for a winning percentage of .477.  Yes...I've kept track.

Picks are due by noon on Saturday, December 19th (since the first games are later that evening).  Picks are lined up after the jump.

As for prizes...1st prize will get you the Rock M Nation T-shirt of your choice, unless RPT (who somehow is the keeper of the purse strings around here) decides we want to pony up some additional swag.

Anyway, we had a good time with this last year with 35 participants (up from 20 the first year) and somehow I am thinking we are going to have a FEW more than that :-)  Come one, come all (and that certainly includes non-Rock M regulars...anyone from SB Nation is welcome to participate)...make me work hard at this.  If you were here last season and have changed names, just let me know and I will do my best to give you your two or three-season score when all is said and done as well.  I will also be adding a couple set of special picks.  We will have the "coin-flip" picks, where each pick will be decided by heads or tails.  I will also compile the "Consensus" picks, which will be the most popular pick on each game, to see how RMN did as a community (in the majority at least).
