I am in Kosovo and do not get to see a lot of the games with the time difference. I get up every morning to check the scores. Last few days I have been cringing. Matter of time now until I am toast.

Right now I still have the potential for the highest score, but I got killed by MSU and Baylor yesterday.

Fortunately everyone picked Baylor, so it's just a matter of where you had your confidence level.  I'm also betting that most people had them pretty high (I did) so it's probably a wash.

I know I'm a little biased by the B1G, but I just had a feeling about my Huskers and MSU.  I really thought MSU's defense was overrated for most of the season, but after they played Ohio State I started to wonder and then they stopped Stanford.  I'm calling MSU a solid team now and the teams that beat up on each other in the B1G are all a step higher, IMHO.  Even Iowa hung with LSU for most of the game and they're not exactly a B1G powerhouse.

I'm feeling pretty good about Ohio State v. Clemson and I'm thinking the SEC may be a little overrated this year so feeling good about FSU as well.

I have Clemson and FSU I believe. I never changed my confidence so it is just going in reverse order and each game from here on out is worth some big points for me.

So like I was saying...

I still had Bama picked as the winner because I wasn't super confident in Oklahoma, but I dropped them as low as I could in confidence after the SEC's games yesterday and am glad I did.

Come on now, you know you want to pick Auburn...

I've got FSU as well, but win or lose, you'll be in the same spot because I think we both have it at 35.  That's why I feel you should pick Auburn. lol

I can pick whoever I want, you need to pass me!

I see that I Gerald can't pass me for sure though so that's cool.

So, the real question is....   Do I leave it the way I've had it all year with FSU winning or switch to Auburn and hope for one more Auburn miracle finish for the BT win.

One point left no chance for me. But if others pick it wrong...

Just noticed that there are still 4 different people that could end up on top with this last game. And it looks like I can pick whomever I want and it will not make one bit of difference.

I think this is why they don't show who you picked to win ahead of time.  Too much opportunity to "game play".   If you have a strong lead and the contenders below you have the same pick then just match there picks to guarantee a win.  Same thing with my situation.  If Josh mentions who he went for then I can switch for a hail mary on Auburn.  

I won't do it though, it's a little too underhanded for me.  Plus I think FSU is going to kill them.

It is fun once a game starts to see how others picked. I am going to miss this game as it is played at 0200 am my time. I will have to read about it and hope they replay it later here. But knowing who has already won takes the fun out of it.

lol, congrats man.  Doesn't second place still get $50 or something?  ;-)

It was such a weird game for me to watch because I wanted both teams to win for various reasons.  I loved the Auburn story and how they got there.  It would have been awesome to see them pull it out and put a bow on such a crazy season.  However, I'm so sick and tired of all the SEC fan boys and them winning every year that I wanted FSU to win and finally break the streak.
Then again as a Nebraska fan, I hate FSU, so I really wanted them to lose.  haha

All in all, I really didn't care who won and it was a great game.

It's easy. Whoever sets up the group gets until halftime to finalize their picks
