With the New Year’s Day bowls past us, it’s time to revisit the Bowl Pick’em. Look below the jump for the analysis…
JH has come back strong after a rough start to move into the epic 4-way tie for 2nd place. Jay had the lead in 2010, but after the New Year’s Day massacre of the Legends of the B1G hurt him, especially with so many SEC fans in the pool.
Although I do have a 3 game lead, everyone but Jagneaux is still alive. Jags and I have the same picks from here on out. JH can tie me while Jay & DH can each win it (though not both). In case you’re not tired of the scenarios from the NFL, here are more!
JH Ties if:
Ohio State manages to beat an SEC team before Pryor laughs in Tressel’s face on his way to the NFL draft AND Middle Tennessee continues the surprising Sun Belt success in the Godaddy.com bowl AND Kentucky beats Pittsburgh in what would be the happiest moment of the Wannstache’s life. (OSU + MTSU + UK)
B/c JH & I both picked Auburn to win the title game, we would be tied. Since this isn’t soccer, if JH & I are tied going into the national title game then we will both pick the margin of victory for the WarPlainsTigerEagleMen, with the closest one being the winner.
JAY WINS if:
Ohio St. forgets what happened the last time it played an SEC team in New Orleans:
AND the Aggies bribe the officials of the Cotton Bowl AND the ugliness of Oregon’s uniform blinds the WarPlainsTigerEagleMen. (OSU + TA&M + ORE)
DH wins if:
Ohio St. becomes an LEGEND (or leader, I have no idea) AND Kentucky makes Pitt look like UConn, AND Nike defeats UnderArmour (OSU + UK + ORE)
So everybody has different routes, but they all depend upon tonight’s bout between Ohio St. & Arkansas. You’ll also note that none of them are a stretch. Pryor needs to play well to improve his draft stock, the Aggies have a home game, Pittsburgh doesn’t have a coach, and both the Sun Belt and the PAC-10 has impressed in bowl games so far. Keep watching!
