After a stellar 4-8 season, my team didn’t make it to a bowl game this year. And since I wasn’t too impressed with Big 10 football this year, I wasn’t all that excited for the bowl games. But of course, you give me the chance to excel at any type of sports betting (outside of a bookie), I’m in. So I joined 3 pools. 2 free, 1 paid. I used the same outcomes in each league as I am lazy and didn’t want to track multiple sheets. Turns out I didn’t do too shabby. I didn’t give much love to the Big 10, only picking Iowa as a winner. I did pick 18 of 34 games. 13 of my top 17 points came in for me, but missing Alabama and Texas Tech really screwed me. My final rankings were:
1st out of 14 – Friends League
5th out of 85 – My “Dad’s” (aka Mr. Dan Dakich) League thru 1070thefan.com
11th out of 65 – Co-Worker League
To bad the only thing I won in the friends league is an imaginary championship belt, the first place prize for smack talk, and bragging rights to a bunch of dudes for the next 11 months. Bring on March Madness now!
