It’s Time for Bowl Pick ‘Em

We’re getting an early jump this season on the Bowl Pick ‘Em phenom for all the OTPites and BSU fans out there. Instead of the cumbersome interface we used last year, we’re switching over to Yahoo. Each of the Bowl Games will be selected by you and assigned a confidence amount 1-34. Damn sure that Central Michigan and the Rust Belt Tim Tebow is running wild on their opponent? Then assign them 34 points. Pretty simple, and if you’ve found your way here, you can do it.

Here’s how you yourself get there….

1.) Head on over to the Yahoo Sports Bowl Pick ‘Em Challenge or click here.

2.) If you don’t have a Yahoo ID you’ll need to create one. Takes about 3 minutes. tops.

3.) Click on “Join Group” on the main page, then “Join Group” on the next page.

4.) It will ask for a group ID and password. Our group is public, so no password is needed, but the group ID is 6856.

5.) Click Save and Continue, name your picks, and that’s it. Simple stuff.

When the bowls come out this Sunday, log on in and make your picks. There was talk last year of some sort of prize, and this year, there will be a prize for whomever finishes first… a Ball State mini helmet, from Schutt, pictured below, or a mini helmet of the team of your choosing. Like Notre Dame? Fine. We’ll get you one of those. Like Kentucky? Super! Florida? Pushing it. Louisville or Tennessee? Get bent.

UPDATE: Scotty’s Brewhouse has offered up a $10 gift card to our winner as well. Yes… that means you can pick college football game and win tasty food and beverages. Sounds like win-win to me.

To be eligible for the prize, drop an email with your team name and your name to overthepylon@gmail.com so we know who to send this puppy to should you win.

Sign in, sign up, get it on.
