win each game, and predict the total points for Monday Night Football (MNF).
Pick who will make each round of the NFL
playoffs, and the total points for the Super Bowl.
Pick who will win each of the NCAA Division 1A
bowl games and the total points for the BCS Title Game.
- The one who picks the most

the deadline will be the one that counts.

picks is Midnight (Central Time) one day before the weeks' first game. E.g.,
for weeks where the first game is on Sunday, the deadline is midnight Friday
night; for weeks with Thursday games, the deadline is midnight Tuesday
The deadline for submitting your College Bowl picks is also midnight one day
before the first game.
The deadline for submitting your NFL Playoff picks is the same as for Week 1,
i.e., before the first game of the season is played (yikes!)

may accept your picks if I haven't posted the others' yet, but don't
count on it.

away from your e-mail or the web for any given week(s), send your picks in
