Better late than never, the OTE staff presents our official, blog-wide bowl pick'em! We know some of you might've created your own groups or put together pools in the FanShots, and we're totally down with that, too -- this just represents a chance to win fabulous OTE prizes sponsored by Graham Filler himself!

We're not kidding: Graham has given his blessing to purchase one of these beauties from TipsyElves in the colors of your school of choice for the top finisher in our ESPN Pick'em Group:

Sizes are available in men's and women's. Neither Ohio State nor Purdue appear to be available, for reasons I have no clue about. If you are an Ohio State or Purdue fan and win, Graham will be in touch with you to work something else out.

Graham's Rules

Winner must post a picture of themselves wearing the sweater, along with a 200-word essay on why they love Off Tackle Empire.

Shut up and let me join already!

Go to the "Join a Group" page (click that link) and enter the following:

Group Name: OTE Official Pick'em

Password: sherman

A note on the group format: It's set to limit two entries, lock the entry you submitted when bowl season starts, and be a "Confidence" picks format. The more confident you are in a game, the closer to "42" you move it. If that team wins, you get that many points! Highest score wins.

With that, have at it! Join, pick, and comment below!
