    Really? Did you really have to pick 100% the same as I did, to include the same score of the winning team of the tie breaker? I guess it'll all come down to the score of the losing team and the spread between the winner and loser of the tie breaker! :popcorn:

    I used to look at your picks in the past to gauge my picks...it never worked too well. :) Now Todd is a different issue. He may be a bookie.

    I don't actually look at anyone's picks prior to choosing. I have an algorithmic process to determine my picks and the score of the final game, but I did notice afterwards. I guess I'll be rooting for one more field goal for USC on Friday.

    Don't worry about it. I can't stand it coming down to a mere "who guessed the score more closely," ... so I'm going to follow my heart more than my head and change my pick in the ISU/Texas Tech game. Iowa boys gotta represent!

    Definitely not a bookie. If I were, I'd likely not be working as a physics prof too ;)

    And while it has nothing to do with me in the end, we had some mighty fine games among our selection this week - wow there were so many close ones!
