    This is an EXCELLENT question!

    I think the winner should at least get some Cyclone "GEAR"....

    maybe even an all expense paid trip to KC for Big XII BB or a trip to next year's Bowl Game!

    Re: what does the winner of CF bowl pickem win?

    A mod should change the ''starter, pro, all star, walk on, etc '' under the username to ''Bowl Pick Em Winner.'' Let that stay until next season. Than it would actually mean something to the person who wins.

    Just for fun? JUST FOR FUN! WTF?!?!?

    At some point 'credits' were tied into the 'Rep Score'. For the most part this was as dumb as dumb could get. 'Rep Score' was based on the opinions you gave.... some people liked them, and you got positive rep. Some people did not, and you were left with negative rep. (so sad) In my opinion you are not making an opinion unless you **** some people off. The whole 'Rep system' sucked.

    BUT, I think we should bring it back if it means I can give 'Negative Rep' to the 'Cyclone Fanatics' who not only picked Rutgers, but gave it a Confidence Score of 34!!!

    Back to Credits??? Seriously just for fun? Life is FUN! 'Betting for FUN' sucks! You see if you win you will wake up in the morning and say.... "Boy that was 'fun!'" I have more credits! Credits which make me more, um... uhhh... better?

    I have 70 million and could care less, if it is a popularity contest it basically states my opinions are not very good because I have not pi$$ed anyone off.

    If Cyclone Fanatic Credits are worth something, errrr. "Cyclone Gear' hey good for me, where can I drop 70 million? I could use a new shirt! Maybe a Hat?!? I would love IF they had some value, but since they do not... I would gladly give anyone, maybe even you (the person reading this) all 70 million credits if, and only if you would be happier as a person with them than you would be without them.

    Personally I like the concept of changing the 'rank' from 'starter', 'pro', or whatever (I'm still a rookie) to the 'GOD OF BOWL PICKING'... at least until next year.

    But seriously, the question was posed, 'What does the winner get?' I think a dollar from each Cyclone Fanatic is not out of the question!!! Maybe $5!

    Who won anyway?

    Credits tied to rep score? I don't remember that ever happening.

    I think the winner should get a 1 year subscription to Cyclone Fanatic.
