To the winner: An Archie Griffin autographed helmetThe spoils.

It's that time of the year again.

It's time to cozy up with FEI Ratings, a workbook full of strength of schedule rankings and your dog-eared copy of Phil Steele's annual to determine which team will win each of the 35 bowl games on tap this year.

If you're on top when the dust settles, you'll win the Archie Griffin autographed helmet that you see to the right.

Typically we roll a straight-up pick-em, but this year we're adding a the wrinkle of confidence points, so not only will you have to pick every bowl winner, but you'll also have to rank your picks, 1-35, depending on how confident you are with each pick. HAHA HAVE FUN WITH THE FIGHT HUNGER BOWL OF INFINITE SADNESS.

So, we're ready whenever you are. You'll be able to login with a Facebook, Google or Yahoo account.

The relevant bits:

Good luck!

I know we hate ESPN and all, but their site is a lot better for these bowl challenge things. Guess I'll have to create a Yahoo! account.

That, or read the post above:

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

Does the helmet come with a certificate of authenticity? :)

Y'all gonna be super salty when Warren G. Harding Twitpics himself wearing this helmet while fornicating with all of your wives on an exclusive Caribbean cruise.

Don't worry y'all, when I win the helmet I'll be sure to wear it to E2B in 2012.

FWIW, it's not a mini-helmet.

Well, my perception must be incredibly off then. Hahah, but wow that makes the stakes even higher.

you're not alone with those perception issues...

I bet I could get so many tattoos for this helmet

I couldn't change the confidence points, so I submitted as is.  My boys will love playing with that helmet in the yard:O!

Click and drag the blue box. It doesn't change the confidence number it changes the order of the games. Kind of backwards if you ask me. Good luck. I don't want to win when someone isn't at their best.

I tried that, but the games were still in the sane order.  I think this confidence pick is kinda dum if ya ask me.

It says the group is full?

Jason Priestas's picture

Sorry. It looks like there's a cap of 500 people in each group.

BuckeyeChief's picture

AnY chance of a second group?

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Jason Priestas's picture

I think there are too many logistics problems with doing that. For instance, group A members cannot see group B entries or standings, etc. Plus, we're exclusive like that.

Kinda weak sauce there though.....especially when there's a reminder in Buckshots to sign up.

I guess ya snooze ya lose...however, there's never been a cap on game day score pickems...

Any chance non-winners in the top 10 are given a prize since everyone deserves a trophy now-adays...

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.
