    Any College football fans on the board these days? For several years I have created a 'pick'em' league for VMB members on Yahoo Fantasy Sports. I created a group for 2014 called VMB College Pick'em. Here is a link to the page to create your team:

    http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/college/register/joingroup

    Group ID #: 12277
    Password: travel2vegas

    We will pick against the spread. Picks must be made 5 minutes before the 1st game each week. Your lowest week's score will be dropped from the final tally. The games will be from the AP Top 25.

    Sign-up and have some fun. Happy Picking.

    later, GVJ

    Tahoejoe2 - the game overview has you in the list of teams. So it looks like you are signed to play. Sign into yahoo and click on Fantasy. On that page - on the right side, in a box near the top - you should see College Pick'em, Tahoejoe, VMB Clollege Pick'em. Click on Tahoejoe. The page where your picks are posted should come up. give it a try. Hope that is what you are asking about?

    The first week is in the books. If anyone else wants to play - you can still join. The game will drop the lowest weekly score. So, week one will be a 0 but, not hurt your final score. I got very luck with some on my pucks this week and went 19 for 19.

    Good because I didn't get in on time and it locked all my picks for this past weekend! I missed the Mich State game and that locked the rest of the weekend for me.

    :nworthy: You lapped the field this week. I was tied for second and still 5 points behind. Remind me use your picks as my guide when I'm in Vegas next month!

    chess - yeah, picking against the spread is a bit more challenging. I got real lucky with Wisconsin this past Saturday. Good luck this week.

    Hey VMB pickers be sure to make your picks Friday evening or very early Saturday morning. Also be intentional about clicking on the save button at the botttom. Once, a few years ago, I made my picks, left the page and later was very upset to go 0-22.

    i am concerned/edgy over some games like: K-State (-12), Alabama (-40), Oklahoma (-24) Mich St (+12, Ohio St (-11). I am glad that so may of the potentially lopsided games are (off) this week.
