Sippin' on Purple Bowl Pick'em - UPDATED!

Yo, folks. I was talking with a friend tonight, and realized that if we Northwestern fans were going to be stuck caring only about basketball this winter, we might as well see who knows our bowl games the best. So I set up a group on Yahoo! where we could prove just that!

Group Name: Sippin' on Purple (remember that apostrophe)

Password: demos

It's confidence points, all the bowls, for all the bragging rights 'round these parts.

Link's here, I think. Should work. Lemme know if it doesn't.

And remember, we could always be as bad as Illinois. HAT HAT HAT HAT HAT. Go 'Cats, y'all.

Update, 1/6/14 Edition:

So I've been blocking this competition out, just like all my bowl pick'ems... Here's where we stand:

NUFanDan: 351 points (19/34), with 9 points riding tonight

wcgrad: 350 points (17/34), with 5 points riding tonight

Purple_Storm: 345 (21/34), 21 points riding tonight

Persalicious: 339 (17/34), 16 points riding tonight

MountainTiger: 332 (17/34), 11 points tonight

Rob's Random Ruminations: 329 (18/34), 22 tonight

PapaTiger: 327 (16/34), 15 tonight

Wiscanesin Titan: 317 (16/34), 29 tonight

MNWildcat: 277 (13/34), 7 tonight

NUFanAlex: 205 (11/34), 35 tonight

Looks like everyone down to Persalicious is still in it, though he needs to be different from everyone above him tonight. Same goes for wcgrad. Purple_Storm, from 3rd place, controls his destiny, while if NUFanDan is different from Purple_Storm and correct, he wins it. Thanks for playing, y'all!
