    Updated Leaderboard

    Rohniss: 12-15

    DRHJ9: 19-8

    s65horsey: 16-11

    redchedelphar: 16-11


    Rogue...Jedi: 15-12

    DarthIntegral: 12-15

    Obese_1_Ka-Blooey: 16-11

    Today's game matchup:

    West Virginia: Nobody
    vs.
    Oklahoma: Everyone

    Hmmm... sounds like another upset possibly since everyone picked Oklahoma.

    With four other games to go and now a 3 point game advantage, I'm going to say that DRHJ9 will be the winner of the first Arena College Football Bowl Pick'Em Challenge. =D=

    Ok, Rohniss, it's me and you ... to see who sucks the most. Just as it should be in a college football showdown this time of the year. Big Ten vs. SEC. May the worst picker lose.


    DRH ... do you want VIPship now, or when it's over, since you've clinched victory?

    I'm pretty impressed with myself. Grumpy about Oklahoma losing like that though and I thought Oklahoma was stronger than Kansas so this could be a bad game tonight too.

    It doesn't matter to me. If I clinched, then now is good, or I can take my 15 seconds of board fame untill the game is officially done.:p

    No games today. Here is the rest of the schedule for the 3 remaining games:

    Saturday, Jan. 5th

    Rutgers: Everybody except...
    vs.
    Ball State: DRHJ9

    Sunday, Jan. 6th

    Bowling Green: Nobody
    vs.
    Tulsa: Everybody

    So, at the most DRHJ9 will win by 3 games, otherwise by 1 to the least. s65horsey is guaranteed second place. DarthIntegral will either tie for the worst record or HAVE the worst record. [face_beatup]

    Man, I never win. I thought this was going to be the time, and it was for the first half or so. Well, at least I knew what victory tasted like in the beginning. :p

    BTW, since i did so horribly bad in this challenge, here's an informal, non-binding poll:

    Should Inty have to take on loser colors?

    []yes - Michigan's
    []yes - LSU's
    []yes - other
    [] no - hasn't he suffered enough
    [] no - he should be forced to resign as mod of the Arena
    [] other (please specify)


    :p

    Inty should give himself the title of "Grand Loser of Bowl Pick 'Em Challenge" or something of that effect. :p

    Good job, though DRH19. You pulled it off late!

    I like the title of "Grand Loser of Bowl Pick 'Em Challenge" plus while wearing Michigan colors.

    Good idea. Although I'm beginning to feel a little sorry for Inty now. I mean, everything went wrong for him, not only in the picks but in the title game as well.

    I almost didn't post that, because I figure something will come back to bite me. Though I have been doing well in these sports games so its possible I'll be ok.

    I'm trying to be a little merciful and not make him wear the colors of his rival... just the team they lost too, which really isn't quite as bad.

    He should rotate every other month between Michigan and LSU's colors until next season starts.
