    You can bet on one line very week. If you miss a week you will lose 25 points. You miss more than 2 weeks in a row you are out. Everyone starts with 200 points and the winner recieves 2 user free recruits. You will have to battle the CPU but not a user 1 can be a :5stars:. With that said good luck and here is the lines for Week 4

    Post like this ndcolts1979 @200 points picks whoever for 100 points or how many you decide.

    [​IMG]

    Week 3

    Clemson - 8 1/2 @ Boston College
    Virgina Tech -18 1/2 @ ECU
    Notre Dame -13 1/2 @ Stanford
    Florida St - 9 1/2 vs West Virgina
    LSU - 16 1/2 vs South Carolina
    Usc -20 1/2 vs Washington ST
    Boise St - 22 1/2 vs Utah ST
    Flordia -11 1/2 @ Tennessee
    Auburn -8 1/2 @ Ole Miss

    So let me get this straight, if I choose my game and bet 100 points and cover the spread, I get 100 points, giving me 300 points. And if I lose all of my points, I am out of the running for the award? But I choose how many points I bet, right?

    Do we make bets like you did up there or do we make them based off the line you put up there. You also need to explain what the line points mean . For example, [USC -20 1/2 vs Washington ST] I assume you mean USC will win by 20 points. Is it that I will win by 20.5 or better?T

    that bet was just and example. Yes you take and pick who you think will win with the points. Like in your example the score to start the game would be Washington St 20 1/2 Usc 0 at kickoff. Meaning i am picking Usc to win by 20 1/2. You will make them off the lines i put up every week. So say someone picked USC to cover the 20 1/2 and you win by 20 then they lose cause you didnt cover the 20 1/2

    I figured i would do this to add something different here and something everyone can participate in and have fun with while earning an award for the next season

    Very interesting concept ND.

    I dont have a problem with this, lets have the user only bet on their game if it's against another user only.

    Is everyone on board?

    One question though, can we pm our bets to you ND! If a user doesn't know your betting on them, it will give them no reason to shave points (not saying anyone in this league will do this :oops:)

    I'm not sure its a good idea for a user to bet their own game even if its against a user. I'm not saying anyone would run the score up just to cover their spread or slow the game down to stay within the spread, but I feel like it would still slightly influence the player...because it would just be on their mind during the game.

    I don't know, its not really a big deal but we shouldn't give anyone an incentive to play with the scoring of their game. Just sayin'.

    But this is a sweet idea ND. I love betting NCAA games in real life. NFL not so much...

    I agree

    I hope WVU sticks within a touchdown... sucks for 4ever knowing two users are not feeding themselves this week and risking the house on ONE game:)

    He probably will cover though... just seen that Jack beat Georgia Tech 43-2... without a QB Tech is useless, probably will be the same thing for WVU...
