2013 ATVS - Geaux Show Pick'em Challenge - BOWL WEEK

The drought continues - Danny Wild-USA TODAY Sports

It was a long and painful road this season, filled with generally horrible picks by yours truly. But in the end, we all had a good time and a bunch of people got Koozies. We're going to roll right into a Bowl Pick'em, but first let's finish up with the last week of the regular pick'em. There was a 5 way tie for 1st, but OU's controversial last score off of the failed Okie St lateral gave the tiebreaker to LSUCools.

Not a great week if 6-5 gets you into the Top 15. Worst picks for the group were NIU's disater in the MAC championship game and USL getting blown out in a meaningless Sun Belt matchup. A lot of us also bit hard on the Duke dream. I was surprised to see how split the group was on the SEC Title Game.

We did not do a final tie breaker weekend with Army-Navy because it was not needed. Since the midway point of the season, Norvasc has managed to hold onto the lead by a slim 1 or 2 game margin and take the season crown with a 65% correct rate. In addition to the GOLDEN ATVS KOOZIE OF POWER, Norvasc is getting a Grand prize of some new Nike LSU Stadium Gloves. Congrats to all the winners this year (yes, your koozies are in the mail) and best of luck to the rest of you.

And now ON TO THE BOWL PICK'EM! We're still using FunOfficePools.com for the pick'em. This year, instead of spreads, we are using the confidence points method. All you have to do is pick the winner of each game straight up and then assign a point value of 1 to 35 to your pick. The higher the point value, the more points you get if you are right, and the more points you lose if you are wrong. At the end of the bowl season, we will send the Top 5 points leaders a GOLDEN ATVS KOOZIE OF POWER and the overall winner will also receive a pair of Nike LSU Stadium Gloves. All winners from this past season are eligible to win in the bowl pick'em.

To enter, just click this link and enter the password "tigers". The first Bowl games are this weekend, Dec 21st, but the picks will remain unlocked until noon on Christmas Day. Be aware that bowls played before Christmas Day will lock in place shortly before that particular game kicks off and you will not be able to change you pick or assign it a different point value. GOOD LUCK!
