Bowl Pickem...

Yeah yeah, I know, I've been neglecting the sports desk. Things have busied up around here. Here's the rules, and 'payoff' for the bowl pickem. We'll score wins, losses, and pushes, because I'm tired of getting schooled by the pushes. If you don't pick the bowl tomorrow, no worries. We're late getting this up, and we apologise. Picks for games must be made prior to that game kicking off, so, you don't have to pick everything at once.

They payoff? Why, a few sentences of effusive praise, and bragging rights.

There's a blank in the comments, for you to use and abuse. As usual, we're going Against the Spread, and the O/U. Favorite in the game is on the left, O/U total is the big number on the right. Happy Picking.
