We are only a few short weeks away from the beginning of the college football season, and considering that we're Illinois fans, odds are we're going to need something else going on to keep ourselves interested in college football this year. It's sad to say, but we all know it's true.
So with that in mind I have created The Champaign Room's College Football Pick 'Em Group over at Yahoo.
It's free to join, and we'll get to how you can do that in a bit. As for now we'll just tell you what you need to know.
Will there be prizes? I don't know, maybe. If there are it won't be anything amazing, but I think picking for pride is fun too. As for the details of the group each week we'll be picking every Top 25 and Big Ten game against the spread. I toyed with the idea of doing only Big Ten games, but that wouldn't allow much variation in scores and we'd probably end up with a bunch of people tied for first.
The more games to pick, the less likely that happens.
So if you want to join just follow these easy steps.
- CLICK ON THIS LINK RIGHT HERE
- Select "Join Group"
- Enter Group ID #5976
- Enter password "lasagna"
- For your team name use your actual name (or SB Nation account name) cuz it's just a lot easier to keep track of who is who that way
- Pat yourself on the back and wait for the games to come and pick them.
