It's that time of the year... College Bowl Season!!



So I thought I would toss out a picks contest for the entire site!!!

That's right every one is eligible.. to claim the title..


Rules...

Copy the bowl schedule from my next post and ...

select your picks using the bold tags

like so...



Pacific Life Holiday Dec. 30
Nebraska vs. Arizona


If you decide you want to pick Nebraska... simply add the bold tags around Nebraska and this is how YOUR pick would look on your entry:



Pacific Life Holiday Dec. 30
Nebraska vs. Arizona



Make sure to hit preview before posting your picks

Why? .. because .. any entry with an edit will not be an accepted entry..., if you happen to miss a pick, which you shouldn't if you preview
... then you would just quote that particular game/s and add the tags in another post...

There is no gray area here... edited post = discarded entry.

Reason? simple, this is the holiday season and many will be off doing holiday deals..


The contest entries will be closed at 12PM EST on DEC 21st... this is to allow for the most entries...of course, if you are late to the contest so to say (miss any of the first 3 games) the games you missed wouldn't count in your entry...

Goal? Most correct picks..


Top Three WINS



1st place will receive 5000BTS Pts *

2nd place will receive 3500BTS Pts *

3rd place will receive 2500BTS Pts *

*staff is not eligible for points, but are eligible for the 1st, 2nd & 3rd place position..

Example: staff member finishes 2nd.. the 2nd place points are out.. etc..

You want the points? finish in the top three


There is a tiebreaker should there be folks tied in the prize positions, that's the reason for the...

Total points tiebreaker : slot beneath the championship game between Texas & Alabama.. simply put the total points you think wil be scored that game..

Example: If you believe Texas will win 24-17, then your total points entry should be 41pts..

In the case of a tie involving the top 3 contestants after the Texas vs Alabama game... the closest to the points total WITHOUT going over, will get the win..

Should there be a miracle of some sort, and this tiebreaker not give us a winner.. then I would confer with those tied and come up with a reasonable solution to an unforeseen dillema


In the end this is supposed to be some fun and maybe some bragging rights for the winner..


The entry form will be the next post, I have eliminated the one bowl which has yet to be confirmed:



EagleBank Dec. 29
Army or UCLA** vs. Temple

** Note: If Army beats Navy on Dec. 12, it will play in the EagleBank Bowl. If Navy wins, UCLA will accept the bid.


So, the Eagle Bank Bowl will not be part of our contest



I Hope You Will Join in the Fun




ed:add important line.. Goal? Most correct picks..

Oh, you seem to be confused. Allow me to clarify things for you. You see, I entered this contest. I made my picks. Every one of them is going to be 100% right. That means I am going to win, and everyone else should not even bother trying.

As for going home... You might as well... You have already lost!

What does total points tiebreaker mean?

I guess I'm out of it because I'll have to edit my original post to include the tiebreaker points.

it's how many points you believe will be scored by both teams in the final game..
