And do you know how one is supposed to rank the teams? All I can figure out is which team to pick. Thanks!

Scott, this is probably a dumb question but by straight up you are saying no spreads, correct?

There is no point spread.

I'll have to look tonight or tomorrow all I did was set it up and haven't tried making picks yet.

OK I just looked. Right next to where you check your "pick" there is a box that says "move". Once you click move the board opens up with buttons that say "here". Click that and it moves to that spot.

So far there is 4 of us signed up; me, Lee, Sang and DanB. Let's get the pick'em group together for one more piece of action this football season!

No, I don't!

Will be wagering the games though. Hoping to complete the "daily double " and win the pro pick 'em too.

These last 3 bowl games have been just dreadful to watch. Some of the most uncompetitive one-sided games in a row I can ever remember.

Only 2 of 8 bowl games so far have been decided by single digits. Looks like it will be 2 of 9 the way this Ohio game is going.

Yeah, glad I put quite a bit on Ohio.

I kind of like CMU over Wyoming in the next one. I think this one should be close.

Yes I do believe the Central Mich - Wyoming game will be a close one. Pretty similar teams really. Wyoming fans weren't real happy with their bowl draw. I guess Boise isn't very easy (or cheap) for them to get to even though it is pretty close as the crow flies. CMich probably won't have a ton of fans there either. I think CMich should be fairly motivated however...unless they transfered in, no CM player has won a bowl game. 2 of their 3 prior losses were 1 possession games. Josh Allen gets so much hype, too much if you ask me. He did have a very good 2016 with some good WRs/TE and RB weapons, this year it is just him and his playmaking has been greatly hurt by it. I think if Allen relies more on his legs and running today rather than the passing game that is Wyoming's best chance. CM has a decent QB, you might remember, former UM Shane Morris.

Likely going to be cold and snowy.

Yeah, this game sucked too. I've been about done with college football since Army-Navy. Trying to keep the passion going, but it is fake at this point. These games have sucked. Central Michigan turned it over 8 times today, EIGHT! SMU turned it over 6 times. These teams aren't just losing, they are turning in their worst, or near worst efforts of the entire season!

I took SDSU. They've seen two option teams this year and their coach's teams are 11-1 against option teams the last twelve games. Plus, it isn't that Army doesn't pass, they can't pass. SDSU isn't all that exciting, but, I think they have the athletes to cover. They'll feed Penny a bunch today.

I had a large investment in App St but still I can't fathom Toledo getting shut out. Some of these teams just don't seem to care. At least the USF and Army games were very good entertainment.

Come on Mr. Grinch.

At least we got two out of three good games yesterday. FINALLY!

But I certainly agree about Toledo. How on earth can they get shutout?

A good part of my town and Family history, has completely faded, I live in small town NW Indiana, at one time in the early 70''s this town would have 3 or 4 cigar stores where Folks would drink coffee, eat donuts, punch punch boards and bet on football and keep linked with each other. In the early 70's the returning Vietnam Vets bought them up and ran them, my Proud Grandpa and Dad brought me down there to shoot pool and play pinball, eat free donuts, candy and root beer, I eventually introduced my kids and Grand son , for me 5 generations of social memories, You would see Your school teachers there, the guy You shook hands with at Church, a your Little League Coach, Great Pride was shown in local sports!!!! Well my Grandson is 6, he was a regular down there for 3 years he received tons of hugs kisses, dolled bills shoved in his pockets etc. It's all gone 2 years ago excise shut rumor has it, the guys who ran it were all sick and old. Lot of good memories and ghosts lingering around. Still watch every game, but not as much fun as when I had 3$ riding on a parlay card! Well, thanks for letting me vent........Love Ya'll Much ........joe

Some cool memories, I can almost close my eyes and picture the setting.

I'm in my 40s. Times change, people change, how we interact are changing.

When I was in my early teens, one of my favorite things to do I used to walk about a mile to this coin and stamp shop with whatever allowance or gift money I had accumulated. I would spend hours and hours in there looking through 3-ring binders of the football cards they had, occasionally and selectively picking out some of the best players from years before my time. All the old timers in there would talk about sports, smoking cigars. Other people coming in the store, not to buy anything, but to sit and talk to the guys behind the counter. Now a Walgreens sits on the same spot that coin shop once was.

Just about everything, I kind of reminisce and romanticize my younger years. Sporting events meant more, I think, because it was less saturated than now and everyone and everything wasn't so overexposed.

Games get a little more interesting this week.

Where is stratdal? Rosen rumor saying he won't play due to concussion concerns, doctor's orders. Read he would play if cleared, not wanting to sit out to protect himself or draft position...unless it is a front to not look bad. Playing behind that Bruin OL has been hazardous to his health.

That ESPN pick'em site sucks. I constantly get error messages and have to keep reloading, I feel like I am trying to buy tickets to a tough event on TM just to make my picks or check everyone else's.
