    I've preregistered a BCS Pick-Em that anyone can join.

    Go to Yahoo Fantasy Sports Home page. Select Join Group for the BCS Pick-Em.

    The Group ID is 14146.

    The password is arena (all lowercase letters).

    Once the bowl games are set, you will be able to make your picks as to who you think will win each bowl game. The top person will receive colors and be proclaimed the ARENA BCS PICK-EM CHAMPION (not based on any other hokey rankings).

    So join now and prepare for the Arena BCS Pick-Em.

    The set name will be based on a confidence factor from what it looks like. So, you will pick each game and then rank them according to the set value (1-35 apparently...)

    So, pick 35, 34, 33, 32, down to 1 for how confident you think that team will be the other team once the teams are placed in their prospective Bowl games.

    The person with the most points will be the winner (so you could theoretically lose a lot of picks, but still end up with the highest score if all of the ones that you assign higher values win and those that don't are those that you assigned lower numbers.

    So, I would think carefully as to which team you think will definitely win and which are probable upsets. Good luck.

    Oh good, one thing I can cross off my to-do list :p

    Wait, 34? I thought there were 35 bowls? :confused:

    Sorry, fixed above. The first bowl game is on Dec. 18th, so make sure that you at least pick the three games on that date no later than 5 minutes before kickoff and the same for each following game and date.

    You only need to at least fill out the three games on Saturday before they start. The other games you will have up to 5 minutes before they start to select your choice and confidence factor.

    The first game today starts at 2 P.M. Eastern Time, so make sure that you get the ones for today selected to the least and good luck to everyone who's playing.

    Yeah, my run at first place in this pick 'em was fun while it lasted. :p

    Really, though, it's still (nearly) anyone's game.
