Think you can beat the RPS? Here's your chance. Click the pick'em link at the top of the page for the 2014 'Beat the RPS Fearless Friday Pick'em'. You'll be going head to head with the RPS. Overall winner gets $75 and can claim bragging rights for a year.

The rules:
1.Pick'ems close noonish on Fridays unless there are games earlier in the week and it will close around noon on the day of the first game in the pick'em. DO NOT wait till the last minute to get picks in.
2. Be sure and pick ALL sets of picks marked for each game week. Some weeks are going to be mega pick'ems where all games will be picked that week. That forces the week to be broken into several sections so you have to pick each section for the week. The sections with more than one section will be marked as such: example: 1A, 1B, 1C, etc.
3.You cannot change your username during the season. You will lose all former picks if you do.
4. In the event of a tie, a tiebreaker will decide one winner.
5. If a game takes place before the pick'em is locked, that game will not be scored. Any games that are postponed will not be scored. Any errors in games or forfeits will not be scored.

You beat Rich. You're against the RPS this time and you're going to have to pick more games than ever before. You better start working a half day on Thursdays.

Episcopal had a team back out of a game on week 2....Hootens offered them a spot in the kickoff classic(Without them backing out of their other week 1 game)...Hector did it last year after jumping the gun on a team canceling a season.

That would be tough if they where both good games.  Better be careful with the new contact rule!

IMO, you should have designated weeks were you don't post all of them until late Thursday.  Maybe w/o one class to make some people think instead of reflex.

I don't wait on his picks, they should come after the pickem's close. And yes, my standings show I don't wait on Rich's.

Tricky deal. The whole point in having RS post his picks is to generate discussion.  Waiting to post them is somewhat counterproductive to that.

But there is no doubt some people use it at least for a guide on the numerous smaller schools where knowledge can be limited.

No. Click the pickems link on the menu bar at the top of the page. You pick all sets for whatever week we are in. Week one picks are in sections 01A through 01H

I will get a dozen pm's saying I did not score the Strong game. I did not score it because it was played at an earlier date than we had and the pickem was not locked before that game began.

Thanks so much for always providing an answer. I enjoy these rankings and picks and am always fascinated by these computer programs that predict games. I'm a math major, and statistics are my real passion, so all of this just completely fascinates me

For some reason, the first group seems sneaky tough.

I got at least 2 different in the first group and I think one for the second group.

Odd vibe on Mills that I didn't act on.

How many games are yet to be decided? 3


If the three remaining games are not played today, I will not score them. By rule I am supposed to not score them if they are still undecided after Friday. Like the pirate code, the rules are more of a guideline anyway.

Week open. 30 games.

Week nine another mega pickem.

Week ten will close on Thursday that week, not Friday, due to so many games on Thursday that week.

Not that it matters on your or most anyone's picks, but I read in the Sun today that Midland had forfeited to Cross County due to numbers.

Correctamundo. Any game changes and any forfeits WILL NOT BE SCORED. Only on the field contested games BEGUN AND COMPLETED FRIDAY NIGHT will be scored.
