    Is this Nova character getting paid off or has he been this bad all season? This guy is horrendous. I don't see how Rutgers has won any games with him at qb.

    I put 34 on Tech, but I can't even be mad if Minnesota wins...I thought they were gonna get massacred. They went 2-6 in the B1G, fer fack's sake!!!

    Ah well, the B1G's gotta win their annual 2 turd bowl games however they can. ;)

    6-6 gets you in.... hell GT got in with a losing record 6-7. Even with that record we managed (somehow) to beat a 9-3 BE team :)

    I will admit I picked VT out of loyalty not out of an expectation they would win.

    I figured WVUs offense would keep this game close. Their offensive line has been completely dominated today, and their defensive is terrible as usual.

    I'm starting to think I should reverse all my picks above 25 points.

    I'll lose a lot of points on WVU, but damned if I care! Love to see them go down!

    I wish I could be drinking after the pathetic game play by most of my teams this weekend.

    Really meant to put more than 3pts on the Beavers winning, oops. So I think it'd be better for me at this point to pull for the stupid Longhorns. Hook 'em!

    Shoot...I didn't realize you were in this. Not doing too bad either I see. Was my first box not good enough? J/K that would be pretty damn ironic if I owed you another box of beer :)

    It's Saturday with 5 mediocre bowl games, perfect time to drink a few brews! Gonna crack another when the whatever bowl (TCU/MSU) kicks off in about an hour.

    Go Beavs!

    I'm saving lives and protecting property till 7am Sunday. But if I wasn't an shift, I definitely hitting the hop's hard.

    And watching my points lead dwendall away.(painfully)

    That's wat i get for too many points on the beaver.

    This is bad, this is real bad :(. Pulling the trigger on desperation mode starting with MS.

    Edit: I actually thought a lot more people would have picked TCU

    I see your from Dallas, would you happen to be a Cowboys fan?
     
  28. cfh64

    cfh64 Aug 16, 2005 Texas

    I would not. I despise them. There are no words in existence that can adequately describe my hatred for the Cowgirls and JJ. I hope they get stomped tomorrow but with my luck they'll win and I'll have to listen to Superbowl nonsense for another week. End rant before I start, haha.

    Long story short, grew up in NY but spent the majority of my life in TX. I am and will always be a Giants fan.
     
  29. llckeller03

    llckeller03 Jan 20, 2012 Illinois

    Hahaha, nevermind then.

    Atleast your not a Chiefs fan like myself. I spend my Sundays yelling "off with their heads" at the tv.
    I think a player must of heard me a few Saturdays ago.

    Anyway....go TCU! :eek:
     
  30. jodan

    jodan Jul 24, 2008 California

    Yeah like I somehow need a bunch more beer after the 2 killer boxes you dropped on me! TCU not sucking in the 2nd half would've helped tonight.

    No trash talking today? Things should start getting pretty interesting. Anyone betting on Clemson tonight?

    This damn USC team is blowing it. I'm mighty tempted to make a few drastic changes to my picks.

    Glad Aaron Rodgers brother is doing well. Thought about switching to GT, but never got the guts to do it. USC just doesn't seem to care...

    What's on tap for today? I'm thinking about Ruthless Rye since it just since came out.
     
  35. martin123012

    martin123012 Aug 10, 2010 New Jersey

    i wanted to go against usc so bad, but not with that georgia tech team,

    ow well, plenty of good beers on my plate, daisy cutter, heady topper, ironhill dinner, some cigar city stouts
     
  36. flexabull

    flexabull Mar 9, 2006 California

    That's what I felt, if USC was playing anyone else other than GT I would have changed my pick.

    Only 40 more minutes until I get to go home and watch random bowl games and sip brews!
     
  37. cbeer88

    cbeer88 Sep 5, 2007 Massachusetts

    GT will blow this one. Their defense is not nearly this good, and USC is the much better team.
     
  38. llckeller03

    llckeller03 Jan 20, 2012 Illinois

    Thank goodness It's only 7-0 GT, I'm sure my picks will take a dive bomb today tho. It was a nice run in the top spot while it lasted..

    Drinking a Fresh Anti Hero IPA by Revolution Brewing. Up next is... The Devil Made Me Do It! By Tyranena Brewing Co. A great Imperial Coffee Oatmeal Porter.

    This Iowa St / Tulsa game could cause some waves in this pool. Most picks has a decent amount of points on it for a game that can go either way. Good luck fella's

    Broke open an Olde Rabbits Foot last night to celebrate the awesome demise of the Cows :). Will probably start off with the last of my schlafy pumpkins in a few minutes.
