    I don't see how anyone with full-time job work can make informed calls on 75% of these games. Who the fuck are these teams? What are these bowls? What's going on here.

    Normally I would agree but it seems like there are so many mismatches this year that it makes it a little easier. I would say that my list probably consists of 30% total guesses. Where as in previous years, like you said, I would be picking names out of thin air on at least twice as many of these games.

    That come from behind victory for Arizona was fucking epic. I know it wasn't against any team that was worth a shіt but was still a very entertaining game to watch.

    Me and Straight Clowning 2 for 2, Sooner2 is 1 for2. Still alot of games left and i have alot of guesses coming up still.

    Interesting weekend of games. I was pretty busy and didn't get to watch too much, but saw most of the second half of the Ariz game. Wild ending. Sometimes these early seemingly insignificant bowl games can lead to some fun watches. Looks like my next 3 pics are SDSU, UCF, and ULL.

    SDSU and UCF are always a bit puzzling. One would think that even if their admins were not spending enough to stay with the top 15-20 teams in the "BCS Arms Race"....that just being able to sign the local 2 and 3 star guys in their region who are overlooked by the flagship schools would allow them to be consistently good. Both are nearly always mentioned in "sleeping giant" category conversations. I'd imagine that coaching flux has much to do with it.
