Here's Part 1of your 2 part mega update.
The college football regular season ended Saturday night, and surprise, there were no upsets. I mean, Temple beat Navy. But I'd hardly call a 3 point underdog an upset.
So what happened and how did it affect us all?
So, who got what? First off, nobody had Washington, in the final four, so let's just leave that be. Every prediction mentioned in this article is worth 20 points.
Alabama - Predicted by everyone except Hale & Eplin.
Clemson- Prediction by everyone except Munez & Eplin.
Ohio State - Predicted by Jim, Joe, Munez, Rob, Geiss, & Hale.
To start off AAC & Big 10(14) were predicted right by nobody at all. That leaves 8 conferences to score.
ACC Clemson: Everyone but Eplin and Munez
SEC Alabama: Everyone but Rob, Hale, and Eplin
Big 12 Oklahoma: Everyone but Jim
Pac 12 Washington: Predicted by Adam, Voyten, Joe, Munez, Hale
Sunbelt: App St & Arkansas St: Predicted by everyone but Adam, Jim, and Gary
MAC Western Michigan: Predictged by everyone but Geiss, Munez, and Gary.
Confernece USA Western Kentucky: Predicted by Adam, Rob, and Hale.
MWC San Diego St: Predicted by Adam, Voyten, Colin, Geiss, and Eplin
Here's the total points earned for those. 20 points a piece.
Nobody's team outside of the top 25 finished inside the top 25, except Munez. but his team started the season at #25 so obviously that doesn't count.
Everyone but Munez, Rob, and Hale's top 10 team finished outside of the top 25, with everyone else having Notre Dame and Tennessee
Adding those all up the tally is as follows.
Credit to Eplin, who missed all 4 of the final 4 and 4 of the power 5 conference champions. And, I do mean credit, because he was able to make up a lot fo points in the smaller conferences, so what was obviously a bad round of predictions for him could have been much worse.
The College pick'em finished up this weekend.
Credit to Munez for picking agians the grain enough to end make up 2 points on Folden. However, it was 1 pick too little. Folden finished in 3rd with 125, 2nd was me with 127. Winner and Champ was shawn with 131.
The bonus points for this go 60 1st, 40 2nd, 20 3rd. Adding the college pick'em scores and bonus together looks like this.
Adding the two numbers togehter brings us to your our Total College Football Score:
This number is important because this is the number that's going to be used in the total scoring from now on. Obviously. The number can still change. Where can you still score? Here are the available predictions.
