    I have seen him

    He drank way too much alcohol last night and has been dealing with some family emergency stuff and sitting by a toilet all day puking. He is getting ready to eat dinner and will do the Pickem results soon.

    That drunk bastard apologizes for the delay

    I hope I don't get his poop stain. I haven't even looked to see how my pics came in. I've typically fallen flat on my face the week after winning one.

    I went with the new strategy and picked every team opposite of what I thought would win for the most part

    As usual, the final week (aka Championship Week) is a sprint. Good luck to all

    Recapping the season a bit before the final week.

    There are 130 FBS teams. Nebraska is not eligible to be on the pickems list. All 129 teams were on the pickems list at least once.

    Teams that showed up the most on pickems:
    All showed up 8 times each
    Virginia
    USC
    Temple
    Syracuse
    North Carolina
    Iowa St

    Teams that showed up the fewest:
    All showed up 1 time each
    Liberty
    Kansas
    Georgia Tech
    Bowling Green

    The season loser is pretty close to being wrapped up. The season winner is very much in doubt. The top 4 are within 6 games of each other.

    That is weird because I assumed you were giving more weight to Nebraska opponents when they were playing someone other than Nebraska. Being how no Nebraska opponents made your list, I couldn't have been more wrong.

    Nope, I look at the full week's slate of games and pick the 20 best ones in my opinion. Never pay attention to the conference or anything else.

    Ok "best ones" meaning the most difficult ones to predict a winner. Only games that are guaranteed to be on the list are games vs 2 ranked teams. So even if Clemson is playing some garbage ACC team that is ranked #25 then the game is still on there. This last week is usually always just 10 games so I just put all the games on the list no matter what.

    No fear....I'll be joining you on an unrelated 1 week avatar bet, where I was sure the Huskers could win more than 5 fucking games.
