isn't just affecting the BCS. It's greatly affecting the 1st annual RSFC
Best Guess competition, where someone is gonna win ten U.S. dollars. Chris
Boyd is going to win the regular season crown, with 9 out of a possible 13
points. But he has Miami winning, so can't gain any more points. If OU goes
to the sugar, there are a few people with 7 points who could get 2 more if
OU wins the title( Chris Stassen, Jim Bush, and Greg Reeves) and one who
gets two if U$C gets the title (Greg Campbell, one of 2 to pick U$C to win
it all). No one picked LSU, so if they win, Chris Boyd gets the money and
prestidigious Jon Russel Prognostication trophy. Otherwise, if OU or U$C
win, we go to the tiebreaker, which is total points scored in the Sugar
Bowl. Two people with 8 (Tom Enright and Jon Cohodas) get the Michigan
award, since they will have had a great regular season but no title.

Interesting: the conference most people got wrong was the MWC, where one
person (out of 42)picked Utah (Dave Reid, he's an alum), followed by the
SEC, where only 3 people (Boyd, Aaron Ginn, Bill Lang) picked LSU, but 22
picked Auburn. Bwahahaha. All but 3 people got the SECE right, since
technically all three teams tied.

Well, you only got 4 others right. I'd have to say Chris Boyd is the man.
But *** him right in the ass.
