2nd Annual Rock M Nation Bowl Pick 'Em Contest

That's right loyal readers...the Bowl Pick 'Em Contest is back. 

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 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 the Mirage/MGM because...well...I've been to both of them before.

Our winner from last year is MU 1839, who went 39-25 to win by two games over The Buck Grimm Experience.  Of the "couples" category, the The Boy and Wife hold a solid lead over The Beef and TailG8Queen.   Overall, the contest generated a won-loss record of  645-635 for a SOLID winning percentage of .504

As for prizes...1st prize will get you the Rock M Nation T-shirt of your choice...until the SB Nation Corporate Sponsorship kicks in...we are still a little cash-strapped.  Hell, I'm still waiting for the 6-pack I was promised :-)

Anyway, we had a good time with this last year with 20 participants 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-season score when all is said and done as well.

Picks are due by midnight on Friday, December 19th (since the first games are on the 20th)
