    Hello everyone!

    As part of the conclusion of my year long College Football Pick'Em Pool, this pool will combine the conclusion of that pool along with a more generic pool for those of you that haven't been partaking in the weekly grind. This is one of the most challenging sets of picks to make all year. It's also one of the most thorough.

    Here's how this is going to work:

    Step 1: Picking the Bowl Games
    I will be using the confidence system for this. You will select the winner of all 35 Bowl Games and will place a confidence value of 1-35 next to each of them. The confidence value is the number of points that you will earn if your pick is correct. You can only use each confidence value ONCE. Keep in mind that we will be doing straight up picks.

    Step 2: Selecting the bonuses listed below:

    The bonuses:
    1. Conference With Best Winning Percentage(5 points)
    By selecting the answer to this question correctly, you earn these five points. The question is as follows:

    Which of the major conferences[ACC, Big 12, Big Ten, Big East, Conference USA, Mountain West, Pac-10, WAC] will have the best winning percentage?

    NOTE: This is not asking which conference will have the most victories in the bowls.

    2. Five Closest Games(10 pts, 2 each)
    By picking the five games that have the closest scoring margin correctly, you will earn ten points.

    3. Five Biggest Blowouts(10 pts, 2 each)
    By picking the five games that have the largest scoring margin correctly, you will also earn ten points.

    4. Team That Will Score The Least Number of Points(5 pts)
    By picking the one team that will score the LEAST points, you will earn an additional 4 points to your score. NOTE: I will be assuming (obviously) that the team selected will match the LOSING pick for that game.

    5. Team That Will Score The Most Number of Points(5 Points)
    By picking the one team that will score the MOST points, you will earn an additional 4 points to your score. NOTE: I will be assuming (obviously) that the team selected will match the winning pick for that game.

    6. Predicting The Defenses That Score(5 points)
    Here is your chance to really shine and earn some points defensively. Choose any 5 games that you would like. What’s the point you may ask? You are looking to try to find five games that will include either defense scoring a touchdown in the game. If you get ir right, you get a bonus point.

    7. The Bowl Shootouts Of The Year(10 pts; 2 pts each)
    By picking the five games that have the highest number of cumulative points scored in that game, you will earn 10 points.

    Good Luck. Entries are due by December 17th @ 2:00 PM EDT.
