    2017/2018 Bowl Mania (Confidence pts, not ATS)

    Same as the last few years. You can make picks all at once or as they come, I believe.

    Not sure if this link works or not but if not lemme know and I’ll work on it.

    Something is not working right. Not sure where that thumbs down is coming from. I selected the Byrk icon, and that is what I see in my post.

    Anyway, it was supposed to indicate that I signed up.

    Next time I'll just do what everyone else does and say "in".

    This is what I see on my screen. Very strange:

    I would like to apologize for my obligatory "in" post.

    Finally signed up. Dang ESPN can screw up anything. I preferred Yahoo's drag and drop. And the fact you could see all the games on one screen. This one you can only see FIVE at once. Too much crap. RABBLE RABBLE. Okay I'll stop now.

    Picks made.

    Are we sure that picks can be made all at once or do they have to be submitted by 11 today?

    I think you can make your picks over a period of time. You don't have to make them all today.

    But after a game starts, wherever you had it on your list, that spot will be locked out.

    Do you think the game is locked at the scheduled game time or the actual game time?

    Picks are in, confidence points was tough to pick. Half these bowl games I have no idea. There’s really too many.

    Pay no attention to him. He's just being a dick. He forgets I still hold the $180 in prize money he won. Mama needs a new pair of shoes.

    You’ve already missed a few games (low pointers I think), but there is a link in the original post. Pick the winners & rank in order of confidence. There are 41 games total so missing today shouldn’t be a thang. Sign up!

    I'm in an ATS pool and I went 5-0 to start that one. I'm only 4-2 to start here.
