Pickem is now open. Week one is a mega pickem and all games will be picked. There will be several mega pickem weeks through out the year and every playoff game will be picked.
A couple rules for pickem:
Pickems will generally be closed for picking around NOON on Friday's unless there a games played on Thursday (Week 10). In that case, pickem closes on Thursday. Never wait to the last minute to make picks. I will not open it just so you can make picks.
The Pickem week 1A closes on MONDAY, August 31, because it includes games played early in week 1.
Any game that is played before or while the pickem for that game is open WILL NOT be scored. If a game takes place on a date earlier than the pickem closing date, it will not be scored.
If a game is postponed and not completed by SATURDAY, it will not be scored. Any game that is stopped before the start of the 4th quarter for weather will not be scored unless the mercy rule is in effect.
If the week is a mega pickem, you must complete every section of the pickem. The software only permits 15 games to a section, so multiple sections are required when all games are picked.
Winner's prize and tie-breaking procedures will follow in a later post. See thread in the Fearless Friday Top 10 Poll board for details.
No games played against JV teams will be scored. If a game selected to be picked is against a JV team, someone alert me and I will not score it.
This year we will offer prizes for the top three finishers. $150.00 to First, $100.00 to second, and $50.00 to third.
There will only ONE person for each of the three places. If there are any ties for the top three places, the winners will be decided by random drawing.
If there is a tie by two for first, a random drawing will decide first and the other will be second place. If there is a tie by three for first, a random drawing will decide first, then second among the other two, and the remaining person third place.
If the there is 4 or more tied for first, the same procedure will decide each place and the remaining people will not win anything.
If there is no tie for first but there are ties for second or third, the same random drawing procedure will decide the winner.
I will use Random.org to pick the winners.
