If you haven’t gotten the email yet, it’s coming. The 2011-2012 College Football Bowl Pick em’ schedules are out! It seems so easy doesn’t it? You have a 50% chance of getting every game right. That’s easy enough. Here’s exactly how I did it this year, in fact, if you want to get all 25 games right (of the remaining games) listen closely: Choose with non-sense, not with common sense. Regardless of the point spread on any game, find words, letters, mascots you like, or even the cities they are playing in. You’ll end up being the man on the top of the mountain in the end, and everyone will ask you, “How did you get all the games right?” Just smile, shake your head, and walk off. It’s so easy. Let me give you a few examples. On December 31st, Illinois takes on UCLA in the Fight Hunger Bowl. C learly, people living in Illinois have to deal with more elements than people basking in the sun in the middle of California. It’s harder to find resources in Illinois and there’s just not as much food. I llinois wins that game. On January 2nd, Florida is taking on Ohio State in the Gator Bowl. They might as well not even play this game! I mean c’mon, that’s like having me play somebody from Ohio in the Stupid Bowl. Obviously name recognition is a big factor in these mind games. I would slaughter that poor soul in the Stupid Bowl. Baylor is playing Washington in the Alamo Bowl. Remember the Alamo? People from Baylor do. It’s a lock. Georgia Tech is squaring off with Utah in the Sun Bowl. Do you like peaches? They grow peaches in Georgia because of the sun. And last but not least, who do you think wins the Military Bowl on December 26th? Toledo or the Air Force Academy? I don’t know about you, but if I need someone to back me up, it’s not going to be Todd Gack from Toledo.
It’s all there for the taking. Just read between the lines and bask in your own stupidity when you win.
