    Re: Weekly Big 10 Prediction Thread

    Here's the final regular season standings. Double check everything. I did, but that don't mean squat! LOL

    CONGRATS TO kaldaniels who finished perfect in both categories this week.

    NOTE to Heather: you didn't pick a winner in the Florida State-Va. Tech game, so I left that game out.

    It was a lot of fun folks. I enjoy doing it.

    Shoot, I meant to pick VT and must have forgotten to bold it.

    Well, I did better at the GAC picks this year than I did last year but a few of the Big Ten games were a little floopy for me. Not too bad overall though. Something to build on for next year! Thanks again for doing all this work, GAC!!

    My name may be on top of the standings but a huge tip of the hat to osuredsfan and danny as those 2 guys picked the most winners this year. I'm glad you enjoy running this GAC, as always thanks for a fun contest this year.

    Hats off to the winners and thanks again to GAC for all his efforts. Bowls and point spreads coming up. This could get ugly for me.

    Re: Weekly Big 10 Prediction Thread

    Thanks GAC for doing this. I know its a lot of work. I did this on another board a few years ago. I at least tied for the most right in GAC's picks with 75. I should learn to leave out some picks to get the highest percentage.
    I'm not looking forward to the bowl picks. I'm always horrible at those.

    Re: Weekly Big 10 Prediction Thread

    OK. Vegas has released their odds for the Bowl schedule and here is where I got them from...

    http://www.thespread.com/ncaaf-artic...odds-a-spreads

    You'll notice there are a couple games where they don't give odds and list it as N/A. I don't know what this means. Maybe some of you do. Is it because Vegas is still figuring the odds on those games and they'll issue them later? Or maybe they don't want to give odds? Don't know.

    Also.... I'd hold off, wait till as late as possible, to post your picks because it's still early and those odds could change due to unforeseen circumstances that could arise between now and then (player injury, etc). So I'll keep checking back on those odds, between now and then, to see if any change.

    And I'm instituting ONE RULE..... All are welcome and encouraged to participate. And that includes anyone who didn't participate during the regular season. The more the merrier. But to make things easier ON ME one must make picks on ALL THE BOWL GAMES. I'm not going to try to sort out and track those that may decide they only want to pick certain games, or the more "important" ones. Just too hard on this old man's mind.

    Have fun.... and may the best man (or woman) win.

    Usually when they don't list the odds on a game there is some factor like maybe an injury situation they are not sure of that they will try to get more information on before they post the odds.

    Absolutely right dave. You're to pick your winners utilizing the spreads.
