So from a strategy perspective, since I am 2-0, I will asterisk all the rest of the games so I finish at 100%.
I think SMT got the asterisk bonus for winning the regular season pickem title.

The real contest is the Bowl Pickem. The regular season is just a warm up and the regular season winner (me of course) gets 3 free Bowl picks. That's the tradition. Last year I won the Bowl Pickem without the free picks.

I got 3. I changed to BYU just before the game started, see the time of the last edit. I'll try not to make a habit of doing that, but I had a feeling just before gametime. Its a good thing it keeps track of edit time.

I can see how one might see how I worded it and think I was changing FROM BYU, when in fact I had SDSU picked all along and changed TO BYU.

After this edit is acknowledged I think I will go unselect future games and make my picks closer to the day of the game/s.

Also, I want to win the Bowl Pickem fair and square so I am going to get rid of my asterick games and pick them all. I have the satisfaction of winning the regular season, but not everyone played that. I intend to win the Bowl Pickem too and by choice I will have to pick all games like everyone.

And as Tie breaker I select the most lopsided victory to be Oklahoma State over Purdue.

I'm seeing edit time of 7:54 CST. Kickoff was at 7:00 CST, wasn't it? I really don't care since it wasn't decided until the 4th quarter anyways, just throwing what I'm looking at in the mix. Checked my settings to be sure, so maybe something got screwed up.

Also, I think it's only fair that you keep those games. I made picks based on that and those are the rules anyways. I wasn't here for the first month of the season, but that's not your fault. If anyone doesn't like that, they should play the regular season next year.

Thanks for correcting the pick. And I will be picking all games. I wouldn' feel like a real champ if I win with 3 free one's. Everyone knows I won the regular season anyway, that's enough for me.

Thanks for manning up. Looks like I will have some competition now.
