TAC Bowl Pick’Em Contest

The bowl selections are out, and it will be Auburn v. Oregon in the BCS Title game. This is irrelevant, because the two biggest fan bases on this site will be meeting in Jerryworld on January 7th (that long. Seriously?) in the Cotton Bowl. I would talk trash about the Aggies, but there’s no need. Any school willing to be bought off by their biggest rival really isn’t worth the effort.

Ok, so in order to continue the college discussion at TAC, we’re doing a bowl pick’em game. There would be a prize but we have no money (unless you’d like to chip in…). You will get honor and glory…and perhaps the right to write a guest post on any college football topic of the winner’s choosing (I’ll work out the details and let you know if that’s happening).

The method is simple. We’re picking every bowl. The bowl begin on December 18th and to be consider you must have turned in your entry by the beginning of the New Mexico bowl, which is at 1 pm on the 18th. The list of all the bowls can be found here. Next week (hopefully on Monday), all the rankers here at TAC will put out their picks with their reasons.

So how do you turn in your picks? You can post them here in the comment section or you can post it on the wall of our facebook group (look for The American Catholic if you haven’t liked us yet). I suppose you could theoretically tweet it to TheAmCatholic, but that would probably be annoying. And by probably I mean definitely.

I’ll allow changes up until the the New Mexico Bowl, but if you do it in a different forum make sure I can identify you.

So send in your picks, and we’ll start the discussions and debates right away!

  1. Louisiana? Why are you guys talking about the New Jersey of the south?

    Okay, I’m sorry. That was very unkind of me. I apologize to all our readers from New Jersey.

    (Just joshing you, Michael)

  2. I like TX barbecue and Lone Star beer (I think, maybe too much Lone Star beer)!

    St. Thomas Episcopal School, Houston has a world class bagpipe band.

    Anyone here ever been in Borger, TX?

    Anyhow, so far I have Auburn over Oregon and Hurricanes over . . . [I can’t pronounce it on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception].

  3. Big Tex:

    Yeah, but a least the LA side of I-10 eastbound is aware of how to do exit & on-ramps, as well as how to put markers & other signs to show where lanes begin & end. And its bumpiness is designed to aid parents in rocking young children to sleep; LA is after all the most pro-life state in the union.
