Hey all,

I set up a league in Yahoo for this. However, I'm a little hesitant to give out the sign-up information, for two reasons.

1 - There is one bowl that is yet to be determined...the EagleBank Bowl selections are contingent on the Army/Navy outcome Saturday.

2 - The Yahoo league (as in the past) can only be set up one way - by using "confidence points". In other words, you not only have to pick the winner, but assign a point value from 34 to 1 for each one. It's not hard to do, but last year a lot of people failed to realize the confidence value aspect.

I could set this up at ESPN or CBS Sportsline instead.

I'm just trying to make this easy for pretty much anyone to play. Opinions?

The Yahoo league is fine by me. The confidence thing is a cool feature.

Wherever you have it is fine. I can win anywhere.

Yahoo league it is.

Here is the sign-up information:

http://sports.yahoo.com/fantasy

Group ID: 3321
Password: VRWC2009

In addition to picking the winner of each game, you should rank the games in order of your "confidence" in the winner of that game. The complete rules are available at the site.

Good luck, suckers. :D

A quick recap of the rules...hopefully we can get a lot more of those casual fans to sign up....

Yahoo! Sports College Bowl Pick'em is a free fantasy sports game allowing you to compete against others to see who can select the winners of the 34 college football bowl games.

Playing is easy just choose the team you think will win each game and assign a unique confidence value, from 1 to 34, for each pick. Maximize your points by assigning the highest confidence values to your most confident picks. With each correct choice, you earn the confidence points you attributed to that pick.

The deadline to make or change your picks is five minutes before each game is scheduled to begin.

Yeah, I noticed that. I figured it was a good thing for me that Arizona wasn't scoring, but I still thought I was going to lose.

I watched the whole stupid game! I think Arizona turned it over 7 or 8 times! You lucked out! Now go kick some playoff ass!!!
