View Full Version : The Office Pool

So I was wondering if anyone wanted to play for bragging rights only.

I usually have an office pool at my job, with College and Pro games picked each week. Its all for bragging rights only of coarse. Anyway, I was thinking of including the games and my picks on this forum and getting people's input and maybe their picks and seeing how we do each week.

I usually try to avoid putting Steelers or Pitt Panthers games on the pool, unless its that big of a game. It will be 12 college games week 1, then 6 each as the Pro season starts. Sometimes, like Rivalry Weekend, it'll be 10 college and 2 Pro or more games.

An Example of What I'm talking about is this:
Week 1 College Games
NC State at South Carolina
OK State at Washington State
Colorado vs Colorado State
Mich State at Cal
Kentucky at Louisville
Tennessee at UCLA
Memphis at Ole Miss
Alabama at Clemson
Washington at Oregon
Syracuse at Northwestern
Illinois at Missouri
Wake Forest at Baylor

All are very tough games to pick. If people are interested, I'll update it with my picks as we get closer to the season and continue to post the Office Pool every week.

Are you picking just the outcomes or final scores also?

Is this a pick'em based on "the line"?

For instance, in the game: Mich State (+14) at Cal, (just a random number thrown out there)

Would you then pick against the line? (Like I'd say MSU loses by 10, so they beat the line).

No lines, final score only on the to be determined Tie Breaker Game/Game of the Week.

Nice. That's (generally) much easier to go by.

Nice. That's (generally) much easier to go by.

You'd think so. We'll see, I pick the hardest games of the week usually.

Like this year, Week 1 of the NFL, I may go with the following games

Detroit at Atlanta
Jets at Dolphins
Tampa at New Orleans
Dallas at Cleveland
Minn at Greenbay (especially if Favre isn't on the Packers)
Jacksonville at Tennessee

So you think its easy, but really, week 1 anything can happen.

Same week College I'm looking at
Georgia Tech at Boston College
Miami FL at Florida
Oregon State at Penn State
Ole Miss at Wake Forest
BYU at Washington

So it isn't going to be That Easy.

Anyway, I'm building the Schedule now with the option to change stuff throughout the year as the teams show their true colors. I mean, how good is the USC ND Game going to be later in the year? Or the Michigan vs Mich State game? Who knows at this point.

The Cowboys vs Giants could be huge! Or it could be a Dud. It depends on how things play out. I'll put out the official Week 1 for College Ticket (Bragging rights only folks) In a couple weeks. College kickoff starts Thursday August 28th.
