Some of you that participated in last year's ODB College Football Pick 'Em probably received email invitations to do so again from Yahoo! in the last few minutes. That's because I renewed the group for this coming year, so that all of you can once again join me in friendly competition.
The best way to join the ODB league is to click the following link: http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/college/register/joingroup
Once you get there, put in the following information:
Group ID: 9521
Password: FourHorsemen (I believe it is case-sensitive)
All are welcome to join. Because we got so many complaints two years ago (almost all from Prashanth) about doing too many games, I chose the Yahoo! most interesting games of the week and Big 12 as my picksets. The first game is Friday, so you have some time. If you guys decide you'd rather to all of the games, I think I can change the settings.
We're doing confidence points and picks against the spread, so this isn't your average league. Any other way just wouldn't be fun. Confident points are what you risk when picking a game, so if you choose for Baylor to beat SMU and put 35 points on it, you win 35 points if Baylor covers the spread. If we don't, you get nothing.
