Only one game last night for those of you who might have had a chance to watch it. Personally, I was too busy stuffing my belly with some tasty treats whipped up right here in the Strong Rock kitchen. I did check in on the score once in a while and thought that we all might be in for a loss as Nevada came to play and really tested Southern Miss. In the end, the Golden Eagles found a way to soar past the Wolfpack and bring home the trophy from Hawaii.
Once again, not much movement in our contest as almost all of us picked this game correctly. Things will shake up over the next week, so keep tuning in to see how you fare. Here are the updated records for you:
The Office Crew:
1st place: 7-0 - Caitlin Weed (Still perfect)
2nd place: 6-1 - T-Bone, Pretzel, Dill, Trip, Cass Waddell, Kelsey Weed, Aaron Sims
3rd place: 5-2 - Kristine Zemen, Cricket, James Knight, Bubbles, Susan James, Steve James, Paige Fierbaugh, Nike, Will Miller, Mary Katherine Lloyd, Kim Halder, Michael Humphrey, Dennis McElhaney, Sharon Latimer, Kirsten Weed, John Lloyd, Becky Martin, David Martin, Snaps
Notables: Unfortunately we turn to Nurse Jenny again today. She was one of the unfortunate souls that picked Nevada. Looks like she pulls for the ACC a lot too, so it could be a loooooong bowl season for her.
Next up, UNC versus Missouri. This could be a pretty competitive game as both teams are somewhat middle of the road this season. The Tarheels are still working to overcome the recent violations while Missouri has been so focused on switching conferences and dealing with distractions surrounding all of that. UNC arguably has somewhat of a home field advantage, playing just 2 hours from campus, but Missouri has plenty of experience in the post season, so that shouldn’t be too much of a factor. Looking across the picks from our contest, it looks like about 65% of us believe the Tigers will bruise the Tarheels. Merry Christmas to all!!
