RMN Bowl Contest - Rolling Along

Can a defense which almost gives up half-a-hundred still "win the game for you"? - Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Though over 200 of us missed on the aTm spread, it was another strong day for the field

Good morning and Happy New Year!

Another very solid afternoon resulted in our contest moving further into uncharted waters, as we now sit at a 53.02% winning percentage, 644 picks to the good.  All-time, we are continuing to move away from mediocrity, now at 50.73% and over 700 picks to the positive.  Let's take a look at what is on tap today, the biggest bowl day of the year.

  • Georgia (-10) vs. Nebraska (O/U-61.5) - 72% taking Georgia / 59.9% taking the Under
  • North Texas (-7) vs. UNLV (O/U-56) - 58.6% taking North Texas / 57.8% taking the Under
  • Wisconsin (-1) vs. South Carolina (O/U-49) - 86.2% taking South Carolina (SEC!!) / 73.3% taking the Over
  • LSU (-8) vs. Iowa (O/U-49) - 84.9% taking LSU / 63.8% taking the Over
  • Stanford (-1.5) vs. Michigan State (O/U-44) - 60.8% taking Stanford / 52.6% taking the Over
  • Baylor (-17.5) vs. UCF (O/U-69.5) - 66.8% taking Baylor / 70.7% taking the Over

On the leaderboard, we have some further thinning of the pack at the top.  HNTR had a big day and has now stepped out to a 2-game lead at 34-12 (all-time record is 45, so that is certainly within reach).  In 2nd place,AlmostAdament is 32-14, and the we have a small group of four behind at 31-15 with swoelfel, poolmwv, DnrW and TommyV, the last three being named for the first time all year, so congrats to them.  At the other end, we have a change as well, with JimLC05 taking over with a 16-30 record, one game ahead of ColumbiaKramer and LongSnapper4Heisman who are sitting at 17-29.  There is a small group of four within spitting distance at 18-28 as well.

I typically try to keep the spreadsheet updated after each game, so here it is through this morning
