Wilson and I entered McAndrew's $100 NCAA bowl pool wherein we were to pick all 32 games against the spread and weight each game. For the weighting, we had 1 ten point game, 1 five point game, 10 three point games, 10 two point games, and 10 one point games.
Wilson and I got together the night before the picks were due, so we could talk about our plan. After drinking a lot of beers, and spending much time on this wonderful wonderful website called "Southern Fried Football," we had what Tom Cruise would call a "moment of clarity": we don't know shit.
Neither one of us bets on games, or watches enough football to have expertise on any teams except the Longhorns and the Rice Owls.
So....in grand tradition of Southern Fried Football, we decided to choose our picks based primarily on the looks of the girls at the schools. In almost every circumstance, the schools that had better looking girls were picked, with extra weight being given to the games that had the greatest disparity of hot chicks to ugly chicks.
For instance when Cincinnati played Southern Miss, we picked Southern Miss. And that was a 2 point game. UCLA was picked over BYU. That was a 5 point game, because....c'mon you know why. Our 10 point game was Georgia over Hawaii. Now I'm sure Hawaii has some good looking girls, but I doubt very many. And Georgia is...well...Georgia.
With 3 games to go, Wilson and I are in 3rd place out of 30 guys.
