    You could throw a hook on each number so their wont be any pushes. Just a suggestion.

    Good Luck Everyone!!

    @ Garister: Great Idea, may take into consideration for next year, but the prediction of the final score should weed out any pushes

    Rules say pick the side,total, and the combined score for tie breaker never says if the side out weweighs the total or if one is the first tie breaker...looks like we coud have more problems haha

    Job Posting: UPDATE ; We are seeking a qualified player to run the college bowl contest for 2012

    Position: Manage and run the College bowl contest.

    Skills needed: Really none. It is preferred that you cannot spell or place two words together correctly.

    Special Requirements: The ideal person for this position should also be very good at driving customers away. A strong use of the ghetto language is preferred.

    Experience: The more you lose in your bets the better qualified the candidate is in telling everyone else they suck.

    Must turn bitch into a 4 or 5 syllable word and use that word or a variation of it in every post.

    This is a one of a kind position and with the right person we actually think we can drive this ship deep into an ocean together.

    Sincerely,

    The bowl squad.

    FSU, I believe Xbigpappa is correct with the final standings.

    I don't see how it could be ruled any different.

    Congrats to the winners

    Congrats to Bret!
    Thanks to bigpappa for running things.
    Just to prevent further speculation, big did a good job during the last 3 weeks corresponding about a couple things that came up. So although rest of you may not have been involved, he was quick and gracious in his responses.
    Good luck to everyone in the Mock and NFL contests, not my year in either of those.

    Good job guys congrats to the winner and everyone who played.

    Thanks Jeff for Hosting and Funding this contest.

    With out Jeff this contest would not happen. I know there is this host called (xppig) who thinks that the sun rises and sets on on his every sloppy move to keep this contest alive.

    I already know you what you all might be thinking, just why is Carpet spending a second on the subject of why Xpigg is qualified as a host? Time is up, wow that was a quick second.

    Oh wait, i got something........Nothing.

    Tough break for garister... he was the only player to get the side right with Army... but still ends up out of the money.

    RULE #3.
    3. The contest will run from Sept 3rd (Labor Day Weekend) thru Dec 3rd. Any tie breaker will be decided by the Army/Navy game in on Dec 10th.


    garister 11-3 YOU WON THe CONTEST.

    In every contest that I have participated in, the winning selected SIDE is the outright winner, not the Under, TOTAL SCORE, or whatever BS that x decided on. The latter, under, total score, is used only for tiebreaking.

    Since I didn't have a shot at winning, I didn't look at the way x configured the tiebreaker.

    Here's the actual final results.

    Augustus 11-4
    bret3518 11-4

    garister 12-3

    Oldluds 11-4

    Lax, I will have to respectfully disagree with you here. Totals were a part of the GOW contest this year so who is to say that bret, oldluds and augustus' total play was not actually their GOW contest play? How does this rule come in to play:

    RULE #3.

    OK, I see what your saying.

    Actual standings were: They were all 12 - 4 based on the side and o/u. The combined total score was the tiebreaker.

    Exactly Lax... at least we had tiebreakers this year. Not like last year when Woodee picked up a cool grand by just taking the same team that you did.

    Jimmy V gave a very inspirational speech and said not to. I live my life by that. Thank you for recognizing my total resolve & inner strength.

    Also a very big thanks to Bettorsworld & Jeff for the contest.
