Florida's QB Trask, had his worst game.  Maybe it was the layoff or nerves, but he was not nearly as accurate throwing the ball.

The UVA QB - Wow - Florida chased him all night but rarely caught him.  He had his best game on his career with 4 TD's.

Michigan couldn't do shit after halftime. I kinda expected that. Alabama is always good about changing their strategy at halftime if things aren't going well.

Auburn vs Minnesota I thought would be too close to call, so I showed some SEC favoritism in my pick and... it didn't work out.

Oregon vs Wisconsin - Yeah. That's another toss up. Oregon looked to have the better record, so I went with them.

Georgia vs Baylor is honestly a toss up too. Georgia could easily lose this game. And it'll probably crash the shit out of their rank going into the next season if they do. I think a handful of seniors are sitting out so they won't risk injury for the NFL combine. Which is fucking gay. Other seniors that aren't going pro would probably love to win the Sugar Bowl in their senior year. Fuck the NFL, they could've just as easily been injured in the other 12 or 13 games that year and missed it. If you sign up to play college football, put a fuckin tampon in there, grab your helmet, and go play.

Jeez. I hope that first throw by Fromm doesn't set the tone for him tonight. Yeah, I thought it could be a toss-up. Baylor is going to be more hungry for it that's for sure, and is known to be the team with the most hustle. I keep banking on Georgia to bounce back after set backs.... we'll see.

Still can't believe Auburn let Minnesota win. I missed it(finally back in NC). I definitely thought it was possible that Minnesota would pick their secondary apart. I have no idea if that happened or not, but I imagined it being a high scoring game. Didn't count on Auburn putting up 60% of the points I thought they would though.

I'm now seeing OSU fans post nothing but Minnesota > SEC stuff, living life vicariously through the golden gophers... :mrdead:

Damn it. The 2 bowl games I said were designed to make the big 10 and group of 5 good were wake Forest v Michigan State, and Boston college vs Cincinnati respectively. I tried to be optimistic hoping BC could make it backfire on them but nope. Should've been UNC and Pitt in those 2 games. BC should've never got a tier 1 bowl to begin with, and wake was missing the top WR in the nation at the time of his injury that did EVERYTHING for them. Pretty lame and obviously deliberate in my opinion, and they got the desired results. Pitt lost to Penn State marginally less than Memphis did, and UNC torched the temple who beat Memphis (that beat cinci twice). A big lol at announcers saying wake was undoubtedly the 2nd best team in the ACC the whole time while saying Michigan State had a bad year but this is a testament to how good the big 10 is. Gtfoh. No wonder their fans think they're better than the sec listening to that garbage.

Yeah. But Cincinnati kinda got ranked #21 for a reason. And 25 to 20 is kinda like... not a big deal and sometimes it doesn't take much to get there. But this late, it means a little more than usual. Personally, I would've prefered to see Cincinnati vs Iowa and USC vs Boston College rather than vice versa like it was. I kinda figured those two were gonna be blowouts, especially Boston College vs Cinci. Iowa vs Cinci would've been way more interesting. USC probably would've beaten Boston College, but not by 30+.

My pick for tomorrow:
38. Ohio

My pick for Saturday:
39. Tulane

And we got one more full day before the NFL playoffs start on Saturday too. I guess we'll go with a weekly "confidence points" of 1 through 4 for the Wild Card and Divisional rounds, then 3 and 4 for the Conference Championships, and I guess like 5 for the Super Bowl? Rules would be similar to the college thing we're already doing, only ALL picks for that round (both days) must be posted before the start of the first game of that weekend/round.

This is what the official game posts will look like:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2019-2020 NFL Playoffs Pickem Game

WILD CARD WEEKEND
(all times Eastern Standard Time)


Saturday Jan 4th:
_ Buffalo Bills @ Houston Texans - 4:35pm - ESPN
_ Tennessee Titans @ New England Patriots - 8:15pm - CBS

Sunday Jan 5th:
_ Minnesota Vikings @ New Orleans Saints - 1:05pm - FOX
_ Seattle Seahawks @ Philadelphia Eagles - 4:40pm - NBC


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just as an example to others who might wanna play but aren't clear on how it works, to make picks correctly, you'd do so by posting something like this:

Bills - 4
Patriots - 1
Vikings - 2
Eagles - 3

You pick your winner and assign a point value of 1 through 4 to each of the four games in that round. It would make sense that whichever prediction you are most confident about, you would assign as the highest point value in order to win the most points. Or you can completely randomize it if you want, it's up to you.

Ohio and southern miss.

Yeah I'm down to participate. Are those your actual picks? That confident in the bills over the Texans? Is Watson injured or something haha. I haven't been following NFL nearly as much as college this season.

Oh god no, lol. That was just an example what picking looks like. So in case someone else wants to join in, know that you can't put "4" for all your picks. That's not how it works.

I guess my real picks would be:

Bills - 1
Patriots - 4
Saints - 3
Eagles - 2

Shoutbox isn't the place for rehashing this. Here's the thread about DM server spawn farthest from 2006/2007:

but that's *NOT what the DM server is supposed to cater to

It's not ideal for 1v1 situations, but that's what the DM server is supposed to cater to. Also, there are 7 other maps besides DM4 (actually 8 for the automatic mymap map between dm8 and dm1). I think there are more positives than negatives.

It happens to better players too. I know I've been in first, or second place, only to die and spawn right next to the other leading player multiple times in a row, and having to dodge rockets in a narrow corridor without any weapons myself (other than blaster).

It's not the best for 1v1 situation

I saw a clearly-new player earlier, and it spawned him like 3 or 4 times in a row right next to a better player. Instant death each time they spawned. I imagine that can be discouraging and frustrating, particularly when someone is trying to get a handle on the game. Spawn farthest would avoid this.

Might be interesting to code a hybrid spawn function that doesn't focus on "farthest" so much as avoiding the few most congested spawn points?
