Every year, there are 40+ bowls. Unless you are an alumni of Central Valley Kentucky A&M, you probably don't care about the Zappos.com Famous Arkansas Hog Bowl. You'll watch it because you like football, but you don't REALLY care. Not enough to, like, make 42 picks about it.
That's where we come in.
The staff at MnB lovingly curates ALL the bowls and makes sure that the true pick'em represents the spirit of the season.
Last year, we didn't run this for obvious reasons. But this year, it's back and better than ever! Featuring only the very best bowl games, including the B1G, Notre Dame, and the New Years' Day/BCS Bowl games. Oh, and the Cotton Bowl, because this blog misses the days of snowy Texas bowl games and will choose to overlook the fact that it isn't even played at the Cotton Bowl anymore.
Rules and prizes (!!!) below.
Users must have a Maize n Brew or SB Nation username to participate. Fill out the Google Form at the bottom. Your "lock pick" counts double. The Notre Dame game only counts if you don't pick ND or OSU.
Winner will receive one (1) Drew Hallett jinx upon a mortal enemy of his or her choosing, payable via tweet and relevant hashtag.
Fill out the form before the first BYCAPE bowl game, and you're good to go.
It's now full-on winter where I am, so I want something hearty. I hadn't had Bells' Expedition Stout in a couple years, but I found a six-pack on sale for 9.99 (!!!) and grabbed it. Bells says you can age this one for years, which is pretty cool, but I prefer to age this one directly in my stomach about 15 minutes after getting home. It's their best dark. Go find some.
