Here’s how it’ll work: We’ll choose 8-10 games a week and make picks against the spread through the Bowl season. Best record wins. It’s man against man and man against computer as we see how we compare against AccuScore. Winner earns one year free subscription to CUOrange.

    I’ll participate. When do you set the odds for each week and when do the picks need to be in by?

    • cuorange said

      The lines will be set when they come out that week (usually Monday, I believe). The picks will need to be in by noon on Thursday, due to Thursday games. Are you a Virginia fan? Where are you located?

      If you’ll give me an email address for you (mine is mcoleman4@austin.rr.com) I’ll keep you up to date on when the lines are set and when your picks are due.

    Cool. Glad to have you on board you are already on the page…it should be fun. Dewayne (Texas D) and I did this once a couple years back with another guy and it was a great competition and lots of fun. Dewayne is a Texas alum and fan, but not a homer.

    Not sure where you want the picks submitted but I’ll do it here,

    NC State -4 with a 28-23 Wolfpack win..
    Boise State -5 with a 31-24 Boise win.
    Georgia +6 with a 31-28 OSU win.
    Illinois -7 with a 35-24 Illinois win.
    MTSU +19 with a 34-17 Clemson win.
    BYU +22.5 with a 35-17 OU win.
    VT +7 with a 23-17 Bama win.
    Maryland +21.5 with a 31-17 Cal win.
    Colorado -10.5 with a 24-13 Colorado win.
    Miami +5.5 with a 20-16 FSU win.

    I think I did that all right. Let me know if you want it formatted in any other manner and good luck!
