Another shot at showing off your picking prowess.
As promised earlier in the week, the BHGP Bowl Pick 'Em 2012 is now live.
GROUP: BHGP Bowl Pick 'Em 2012
GROUP ID#: 22084
Come one, come all. (I don't think there's a limit on the size of private groups in the Yahoo! game, but if there is one and we hit it, let me know in the comments and I'll add another group.)
As always, the prize is a free BHGP shirt of your choice.
NOTE: This game does not involve picking against the spread (I couldn't find any bowl pick 'em games that did that), but it DOES involve the use of confidence points. So if you feel really, really good about a certain pick -- like, say, Northwestern losing for the eleven billionth bowl game in a row -- feel free to give it the max confidence value (35). On the other hand, if you have no idea about a game -- like, say, Louisiana Lafayette versus East Carolina -- you might want to give that one a low confidence value (1). And so on.
The bowl games start next Saturday (December 15), so you'll want to get your picks in before that. Note that you CAN change your picks for each game, up until five minutes before kickoff. So if a certain star quarterback gets busted for imbibing a little too much eggnog around the holiday season (I'm lookin' at you, A.J. McCarron), well, you can adjust your pick accordingly.
