EOG Veteran
Welcome to Jammer's 2018 College Bowl Contest.

An invitation-only contest with a purse of $1,000.

The format combines a pointspread contest with confidence points.

Select only 20 of the available 39 bowl games.

Submit 14 bowl game selections of your choice PLUS six mandatory selections involving the New Year's Six games (Peach, Fiesta, Rose, Sugar, Orange and Cotton).

Assign your best bet a confidence rating of 20 points, your second-best bet a confidence rating of 19 points, and so on.

Pointspread pushes will earn half the assigned confidence points.

The contestant with the most points will win $600, compliments of Jammer and BetDSI.

Second place is worth $300 and third place will earn $100.

A tiebreaker will be established in the National Championship Game, if necessary.

Post your selections in this thread.

Entry deadline is Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m. PT.

Like last year, Jammer and EOG are providing another $1,000 prize pot.

What's the purse distribution, Jammer?

First? Second? Third?

Like the Kentucky Derby, a field of 20 is going postward.

I'll consult with Jammer to see if he wants to add an also-eligible list.
Thanks for the invite...

this looks like a losers bracket contest
We can have a side contest for the "winner" bracket, if your picks were to win the contest (top spot only) I will match the winner's top prize and pay you directly. Freebie shot or humble pie for your picks and less sour grapes (maybe).

Well played, AA.

I'll save a spot for you in EOG's Grand Challenge, if you'd like, and you're welcome to jump into The Octagon anytime you would like.
