Yahoo's method of ranking picks is horrible. It is so cumbersome. It took me 3 minutes to make my picks. It has taken me the better part of the last hour to move teams around.
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.

Furls, there's an option on the right side of the page to use the "classic" method of assiging points via drop down boxes.

Man, no Great Lakes Brewery in CT. Best I got up here is probably Sierra Nevada Pale Ale or Seasonal Ale. Still pretty damn good. It is a solid substitute, but not the real thing.

Man the FSU/WYO and SMU/Nevada games have cleaned some clocks. I got bit by FSU bad, but I nailed SMU.

Also, I just got a case of GLB Xmas Ale from my inlaws. They are now welcomed guests. I still have no idea what my favorite GLB is... Elliot Ness? Dortmunder? I just don't know.

FWIW, GLB Burning River was ranked #2 in Maxim's best Pale Ale's (right behind Sierra Nevada). I also, like Sierra Nevada quite a bit.
