RMN Bowl Contest -Well....That Went Wrong Quickly

New, 6 comments

Props to the Miami Beach Bowl and Bahamas Bowl for figuring out how to become relevant in their first year. A 2OT game followed a brawl and a Hail Mary of all time will do that

Seriously....I had not watched a minute of the Directional Kentucky vs. Directional Michigan game, but saw the score at 49-14.  With only the O/U (65) in doubt, I followed the game briefly on ESPN.com until Directional Michigan scored.  I updated the spreadsheet and set off to shower and get ready to head to my in-laws.  Some time later, I flipped on the TV while waiting for the family to be ready and thought, "Hmm...I wonder if the game is still on.  I'd be curious to see how the stadium in the Bahamas looked."

I landed on ESPN with :01 to go in the game.

I saw the final play(s).

I heard Bill C. scream, from Columbia, in my house in St. Charles.

I then went upstairs and reversed all the work I had done.

Fresno and Rice was a laugher, but unfortunately on the wrong side of the result for us.  That one stung a bit, knocking the contest back to 52.5% on the year. There are some BIG majority picks coming up, but Fresno had been the biggest to date.

On the leaderboard, the Coin Phlip still leads the way, now sitting at 17-3.  Don Carnero is alone at 16-4 and then duckitecture and fengsuede earn their first mentions at 15-5.  At the other end, nc stee and MizzouThrill are tied at 5-15 with joedog3 and jacksonian one game better at 6-14.

Football takes a backseat for the day as the NBA takes the stage, but we will be back with three games on Friday.  Let's take a look at how the Community feels things are going to go down.

  • La Tech - 63.8%
  • Under - 66.3%
  • UNC - 65%
  • Under - 77.3%
  • UCF - 78.5%
  • Over - 73%
There are some heavy picks in there, so let's hope for a good day on Friday as we try to get back towards that 55-56% mark that looked so pretty.   For those interested, you should be able to view the Results sheet HERE, while you should also be able to view the All-time records HERE.

Merry Christmas everyone!
