    To be more explicit: Earl has the following game winners correct:

    Utah State, Georgia Southern, Appalachian State, BYU, Troy: 5 points
    TCU, Duke, Baylor, Auburn: 8 points

    Total: 13

    Since everyone guessed the exact same thing for the CFP and the national champion, the big bowl bash could just end early when all the other bowls are done.

    I share Todd’s opinion re: points for the Cotton Bowl. In my score keeping I assigned no points to everyone since it was canceled...

    Edward Puritan Board Doctor

    Yes. I left him off the tally for some reason. I'll check Earl.
     
  5. Edward

    Edward Puritan Board Doctor

    Yes, I missed Baylor. That takes him to 13.

    The tiebreaker could technically still come into play. But yes, the playoff is irrelevant at this point.

    BOOMER SOONER. And how many of us are secretly pulling for the team of the communist pope?

    According to my ESPN app, the Cotton Bowl is Notre Dame versus Clemson in the CFP, and it was the Servpros First Responder Bowl that was cancelled. Is my app incorrect?

    The "First Responder" Bowl is played (or in this case, started but not finished) in the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. The so-called current "Cotton Bowl" is played in JerryWorld, also known as AT&T stadium, located in another city and county. A convergence of race and money, as is much of what passes for politics in the Metroplex. At least the real Cotton Bowl has escaped the fate of the Sugar Bowl (turned into a parking lot) thus far.

    So which is the real Cotton Bowl? The game actually played in the Cotton Bowl, or the game run by and for billionaires and multi-millionaires?

    Edward, while I certainly concede the logic of your position on one level, does it not introduce a bit of confusion? Most of the US will think that the ND/Clemson game is the Cotton Bowl. If it isn't, then what would you call the ND/Clemson game?

    Clemson to win. Watching with son and pizza. Simple pleasures!

    The Bought Bowl? A good investment for Jerry Jones. I think he's also bought the Arkansas - TAMU game, and he's trying to buy a UTex - TAMU game.

    Edward, any word on who is in the lead now? Would love an update.

    I'm not Edward, but I have the following unofficial count:

    EdM 37
    Todd 34
    Edward 32
    Lane 30
    Ben/Earl 29

    Took some work and re-checking, but I got my numbers to match Todd's.

    That's what I show as well. I was doing so well until the 28th. Sigh... Oh well, better "luck" next year...

    FYI you know you got the name of the Mississippi State /Iowa bowl wrong, it’s the Outback. I only comment because I’m a MSU graduate.

    One last push today:

    The meaningful games are Iowa vs Mississippi State and LSU vs Central Florida. Turns out that the Penn State vs Kentucky game won’t alter any results

    It will alter the results, but not the outcome.

    I thought I posted up-thread that if a company wanted sponsorship here, they had to pay a donation. No one did (or if they did PB management didn't let me know), so no corporate sponsors named. I had to spend more than a little time digging out the real names of bowls that had sold their souls to the new world order corporate masters.

    By the way, I show EdM winning. Do any of the fact checkers show something different?
     
  25. toddpedlar

    toddpedlar Iron Dramatist Staff Member

    Yes, I believe I'm the winner by one. The scores have (not counting UW/OSU) are:

    me: 52
    Edm: 51
    Edward: 50
    Lane: 46
    Earl: 45
    Ben: 39

    Man, I fell apart like the Michigan defense against Ohio State.

    Prior to today's games, the scoring was:

    me: 48
    Edm: 47
    Edward: 44
    Earl: 43
    Lane: 40
    Ben: 39

    The three games so far today were IA/MSSt (2), PSU/KY (2), LSU/UCF (4)

    Winners of those games were IA, KY, LSU

    This added 4 points to my total, 4 to Edm's, 2 to Earl's, 6 to Lane's, 6 to Edwards, and 0 to Ben's.

    OK, no certified results yet. I hadn't checked off Todd for Northwestern (Thanks, Todd, your list helped me spot that quickly). I did have the right number for EdM.

    I'll hold off on Certified results until the rest of the games are in. But the unofficial uncertified results show Todd.
