Now that I understand what to do with "picking", I might do a little better next year. 8) :lol:

I am going with my football acumen rather than my alliances next season.

Also, I may amend the point scoring to include the top 20 next year. There are teams who have records with 10 + wins past the top 15.

I wish the committee wouldn't wait so long to release the the poll. But; that's just for my own selfish purposes. I understand why they wait until they do.

I will do it next year too. I didn't understand that I didn't have to keep up with it every week.

I'll take fault for that; it had been a few years since the last time I had run this, so we were all a little out of sorts from the start.

Let’s give some thought about how to come up with our own ranking system based on wins and losses AND which teams those wins and losses were against....... who knows, maybe together the members of this board can show the CFP how it’s done. :wink:
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

Donovan gained a point, rising from 36 to 37, and into a tie with me for 5th place.

Thanks for the congrats !

I learned some as well....

1....Some picks that are "mined" earn points...

example: Cane's Appalachian State was 12 points...more than Bama, Georgia, Oklahoma. FAU earned more than MIchigan.

2...You don't have to be "loyal"

My FSU pick and Cane's Miami....did not help much.

Congrats to Billybud!!

That Northwestern pick was REALLLY dumb. Might be the biggest reversal from 2018. They were just awful.

Didn't expect my LSU pick to earn so many points either. 8)
