This sounds like a fun football pool. Have you ever won any of these?

Rutgers should beat UMass or Liberty. Illinois should beat Akron, Connecticut or E, Michigan. The really tough game to predict would be Rutgers vs Illinois. i can see how this could get interesting as the season progresses.

Michigan will lose to Army and maybe Maryland. Oh.. also to that team in Ohio.

InUrbanWeTrust: Not quite right ... you can only have each team listed two times - once as a loss, and once as a win. You have Ohio State listed as winners multiple times.
You essentially need to pick one game per week to fulfill the requirements.

Trust me! I'm an Engineer.

Huh? The team that is in all CAPS is the team that I have selected that week as my winner/loser... I only used each team once. If you're saying that you can only choose a game with each school as a participant once that is dang near impossible.

My Ohio State win is against Rutgers and my Ohio State loss is to Nebraska... Ohio State just happens to be the opponent when I pick a couple other schools to lose.

I don't love how the last few weeks shape out, if they select by week I think I could do a little better based on how teams are playing and I got hemmed in having to pick Nebraska to lose to Iowa which I actually don't believe will happen, so I'd take Iowa earlier in the year to a lesser opponent.

Didn't Purdue lose to Eastern Xichigan last year? If so, tough pick to have Illinois over them. 

(If I'm wrong, my years are overlapping and I'm in need of help.)

Illinois has to beat someone... Lol.  But it was last year... Eastern Michigan also finished the year a measly 7-6 so it isn't like they were the cream of the crop of the MAC.  Weird things happen in West Lafayette my friend...  Didn't want to remind myself of that.  I don't know if I can ever step back inside that stadium again.  Smelled like dirty hot dog water and we were packed in like sardines.

Yahoo used to have a great game called Pick Three ( I think ) where each week you would pick a qb,a rb, and a wr for points. You could only use a player once a year. It was a blast. I wish they still had it. 

Deserves got nothin' to do with it

My family before I was even born and to this day still has a little game we play every week.

Every big ten team is chosen and 6-7 other games are chosen as well, you pick the winner and the score for the game for instance Miami vs Florida, so you would hypothetically pick florida 24-17.

If you get the exact score of the game you get 8 points, you get the spread correct but not the exact score 7 points, other then that its say 6 points to the closest 5, 4, 3 and so forth picking wrong gives you zero. This goes all the way through the entire season including bowl games, points are tallied and the winner gets a trophy until the new season starts.

I love it, it makes me research other teams and watch all of the college football.

Successful people do what they have to, whether they feel like it or not

Ouch to where you have the Bucks losing... I don't want to think that will happen... I'd much rather take one on the chin to Nebraska.

It's what was left. Kinda just viewed it as a lost point anyways. Cause Undeafted seasons kinda ruin a perfect score in this anyways
