NASHVILLE, TN - DECEMBER 30: Why? Why did you have to give up that field goal at the end of the game? (Photo by Grant Halverson/Getty Images)
As Oklahoma finished off their cover last night, and as Trent Ratterree finished off his career, the bowl season officially was half over as well. In the next 3 days, there will be 11 bowl games, so the leaderboard you see today is not really likely to be the same board you see come Tuesday morning. However, with four games yesterday, we had some changes at the top.
smbz5b used an impressive 7-1 day to shoot to the top of the list at 24-14. That is one game in front of mizzou2396 and two games ahead of a large pack at 22-16, including our leader for pretty much the entire contest, the good ol' Coin Phlip. At the opposite end, we have a three-way tie at 12-26 between j in jc, ewmw6 and hane5. Interesting that we have had some new names there, meaning the contest is pretty fluid at this point.
If only Miss St. had not given up a somewhat (in the end) meaningless field goal to Wake Forest, we would be much better off as a whole. Miss St. was a HUGE majority pick, but the 6.5 spread was just missed. That one pick would have kept us within spitting distance of .500, but alas we have fallen back to just over 48%. Lots of games to go, but not nearly as many majority picks left.
Speaking of which, today's action really seems pretty split all over the place. From a simple scroll, Ga Tech appears to be the strongest play among us. As always, you can access your picks and all the totals (located at the bottom of the page) by clicking on this link.
Happy almost New Year!
