    Well, it’s that time of the year where I realize how little CFB I actually watch! Bowl Games start in 18 days!

    Similar rules that I've used in the past with some additional information regarding shipping deadlines:

    The pool will be done with confidence points. So for example, if you are a die hard Georgia Southern fan, and think they are going to blow out whoever they play in their bowl game, then you'd assign the highest confidence points to that game. And then conversely, you'd assign the lowest points to whoever you think will win the Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl, or whatever game you don't have a clue who you think will win.

    Losers will send at least 44oz of beer to the winner(s). I'll decide the number of winners and the share of boxes depending on how many people join, similar to what was done last year where there were 20 entries and 5 winners receiving 6, 4, 3, 1, 1 boxes each. We followed this draft format for the winners last year

    Any beyond reproach users from last year should be able to rejoin the pool on ESPN, just please post "in" here so that I know who is joining. I’ll start a group PM to distribute the ESPN link and the google form I’ll use to collect shipping info.

    Also, I may require a sponsor for certain users and total noobs.

    And most importantly, the shipping timeline:
    January 7: National Title Game, winners finalized
    January 8: Winners draft shippers. Hopefully I get PMs out to everyone with their targets that night (work for me in early Jan is always crazy, so it might be the following day)
    Friday February 8: Deadline to communicate why you're missing the shipping deadline and an updated ETA that is within reason
    Monday February 12: Deadline to ship (this is a long ass time for you to get your shit together and ship!)

    FAQ regarding these deadlines

    I think we're up to 9 now. Would love to double this before games start.

    I've added everyone to the group PM with link to the google form and ESPN group password.

    Picks are in! Now the hard part; not to tweak them for excitability early on!
