    I'm watching the complete mismatch that is the 2016 PlayStation Fiesta Bowl. Mercifully, it is almost over. Clemson is just pounding Ohio State and whatever the final score ends up, the game wasn't even that close. In some ways, it reminds me of the 1996 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, when Nebraska beat Florida 62-24 to win its 2nd consecutive National Championship. No, Clemson isn't close to being as good as that Husker team, but the Tigers are a very good team when they're focused and playing their best. I'll be rooting for Clemson to beat Alabama in the CFP Championship Game.

    Game 7: Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl -- (20) LSU 29, (13) Louisville 9

    Game 8: Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl -- (4) Washington vs. (1) Alabama 24, (4) Washington 7

    Game 9: PlayStation Fiesta Bowl -- (2) Clemson 31, (3) Ohio State 0

    Only a few more hours remain before the curtain falls on 2016. I, for one, am thankful the year is almost over. Good riddance, 2016.

    In Game 7, LSU ran all over Louisville even with star RB Leonard FourNette sitting out, while the Tiger defense beat up Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson. It all added up to a 29-9 victory for LSU.

    In Game 8, Washington committed several costly turnovers including pick-6 just before the half and Alabama's defense generally made life miserable for the Huskie offense in the first CFP Semifinal game. Alabama won 24-7 and is seeking its 2nd consecutive CFP Championship.

    In Game 9, Clemson obliterated Ohio State 31-0 to secure a rematch against Alabama in the CFP Championship. Things went south so quickly for the Buckeyes, Rhonda Rousey was actually in her fight against Amanda Nunes longer (48 seconds) than Ohio State was in its CFP Semifinal against Clemson in the Play Station Fiesta Bowl. Is it too late to ask for Ohio State to return my alumni donation?

    In the latest standings, Twelve4s again correctly picked all 3 games and leads the way with 55 points. Simply put, he is en fuego -- perhaps he is using a heretofore-unknown form of PI (pick influencing) and willing his selected teams to victory. Or maybe he has used LID's time machine to gain an unfair advantage. Or perhaps he's just good at picking games. Whatever the case, Twelve4s has taken a commanding 15 point lead over Kokomojoe4, who is in 2nd place with 40 points. Saturday was a brutal day for random_roller, who is currently in 3rd place with 36 points. 777 continues to move up the standings and is now in 4th place with 27 points, with yacraps close behind with 26 points.

    The next evaluated bowl games are on Monday, January 2nd:
    • Game 10: Outback Bowl -- (17) Florida vs. Iowa
    • Game 11: Goodyear Cotton Bowl -- (15) Western Michigan vs. (8) Wisconsin
    • Game 12: Rose Bowl Game -- (9) USC vs. (5) Penn State
    • Game 13: Allstate Sugar Bowl -- (14) Auburn vs. (7) Oklahoma

    Have a safe & enjoyable New Year's Eve. Best wishes to all in 2017.

    Koko......you did/are doing great picking teams.

    It's kinda like craps......knowing how to bet is over 50% of winning.

    I bet, if you could, you'd be parlaying some of your wins.

    Juggernaut is a rather strong word. Now if I had bet real money on parlay cards, then I might be getting a new set of wheels,

    Remember, right now the point totals are only an expected values. Strange things can still happen when the final results are input into the beta spreadsheet, which was hastily put together using offshore professional services (to reduce costs). Worth noting, there are some untested complex formulas and macros, which I'm told are the software equivalent of the pyramids found on the craps tables.

    In other words, "it ain't over 'til it's over".

    Happy New Year to you 777, as well as the rest of this group. 2017 is already off to a great start -- thus far, I haven't missed a pick this year!

    Twelve4s,

    I just noticed this curious formula in Cell N21. It might be the work of one of Putin's hackers.

    =IF(SUM(N5:N18)>55,IF(L4="Twelve4s",0),1)

    Not to worry, I've got a Lotus 1-2-3 for DOS guru analyzing the spreadsheet to help ensure the integrity of my win, er, the outcome of the challenge is as uncompromised as the private mail server Hillary Clinton used while Secretary of State. :D
