College football bowl prediction DiS group! (ffo: 🏈, 🏆)

#1

Niche interest, but as scouted out in the NFL thread:

  • you will need to create an account on the ESPN website.
  • use this link to find the DiS Bowl Mania group and create a set of picks. The group password is ‘puntoff’
  • plesse select ‘straight’ mode and either use your DiS username or post your entry name in this thread so we know who each other is.
  • bowls start on Saturday so picks have to be completed by then.
  • happy to help and answer any questions
  • there will be a small prize and/or trophy for the winner.
  • knowledge of College Football is not mandatory.

@tricklenipple @Aggpass @ghostpony @jont2001 @Unlucky anyone else? @profk or @incandenza maybe?

This is my mum’s system!

Actual college football knowledge is completely optional, still a lot of fun even without knowing anything :grinning:

Just for your fyi: don’t pick the games based on local weather sd they are all played on neutral sites.

I’m in. No idea about college football, and my username was already taken so I had to add a little something to it, but I’m in. I like to be involved.

the bears Vs the commodores (poor Lionel)
hurricanes Vs badgers
mountaineers Vs an orange

unfortunately no wildcats Vs wildcats, but we have got -
the eagles Vs the other eagles
the wolves Vs the wolfpack
thundering herd (of bulls?) Vs the bulls

I had to pick the one spelt ‘oranbge’. I don’t know if that was a typo or some US thing but fuck it.

Also it took me ages to work out how to join the group because this bit

was so unlike the rest of the UX on the page I assumed it was an advert and just kept ignoring it.
