    All right, let's get this going. Confidence Picks against the spread. I have it set to the yahoo games of the week + Pac12 games. I also have it set up to drop your two lowest scores of the year (because most people forget to make their picks 1 or 2 weeks).

    Getting an error. Not sure if it is Yahoo Sports related, user error, or specific to how it was set up.

    I'm going to see if I can get in on another account. Maybe I have something set up wrong.

    OK, apparently you need to enter the group ID number, not the name. Group ID# (4440)

    Thanks for setting this up!

    In, have a question, never done this group before. Do you have to use all the confidence points each week? Or are they just used to pick up more points? apologies for the ignorance.

    Yup. Pick against the spread and assign confidence points.

    In. I did this one year and was kicking arse until it did not record my picks for the week and it destroyed me. Better not happen this year.

    We drop the two lowest scoring weeks, because this did happen to some folks last year.

    I'm in. I'd like to think I'm good at this but I use my heart more than head and will sabotage myself along the way.

    I'm using a very sophisticated NASA developed algorithm to make all my picks. You guys are screwed.

    Make sure you don't mix your metric and imperial units this time.

    I'm not screwed because of anything you are doing, I'm screwed because I'm making my picks.

    I lost big on Wazzu and UVA plus I underestimated Bama and Michigan as big favorites.
