    College Football Pick'Em Pool 2012 Edition:

    Defending Champion: Jello1717

    Do you think you are the smartest college football person of them all? Prove it!
    Welcome to Year #2 of the College Football Pick’Em. This year’s edition should be just as fun but even more challenging! This year’s pick’em is going to involve more games, confidence scoring and an automated system where you just point and click to enter your picks. Piece of cake right?

    Your job is to simply pick the winners of each of the games straight up(not going to deal with the point spreads). To participate, all you will need to do is enter your selections for each week on the links listed below. You are also going to be making some preseason selections which will count for some additional possible points.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Format in a bit more detail:

    Scoring:
    This year we will be using the Confidence Point System. Your objective starts off the same, you will be asked to predict the winner of each game, straight up. However, you will then also place a point value ranging from 1 to the max number of games that week. If you get the game correct, you score that number of points. Here’s the catch though, you can only use each number once! The idea is that you will want to put the HIGHEST point value on the game you are most confident in the result and the LEAST point value on the game you are least confident. It adds an element of strategy to the pool which I like.

    The pool will run all the way through the Bowl Games. Before the season starts you will be asked to make your predictions for each of the conference champions, your national championship game and your Heisman Trophy winner. Each correct prediction will be 5 bonus points added to your score.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    How to Enter Your Picks:
    For each week, you will go to the website listed below and submit your picks. I have the first 13 weeks worth of games already up, so you could technically submit them all now or submit them each week of the season. The full schedule below has the full schedule, the links and the due dates for each week. I will do my best to send out reminders each week and I also plan on uploading everyone’s selections Saturday Mornings. You can also view the full schedule of all of the games at: http://opbgn.startlogic.com/cfball2012/fullschedule.htm

    If you’re worried that your entry didn’t go through(rarely will it not), just message me and I’ll gladly check it. This will be so much easier for me to maintain throughout the season!
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Standings:
    My goal is to update the standings every Sunday throughout the season. If it doesn’t happen, you might see them Monday.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Mostly bragging rights. Maybe I'll throw in a small Amazon Gift Certificate for the winner if I don't forget. :)

    As of Tuesday Night @ 8:13 PM EST ; these are the selections I have in for Week 1:

    Mastin, Damien
    Redd, Coach
    Lazaroe, Loren
    Connor
    BDS DIGITAL
    Eidson, Trey
    jello1717
    Atkinson, Will
    LSUzilla
    Cheez

    For the record, I will be donating a $20 or $25(depending on what they offer) Amazon Gift Certificate to the winner of the pool. If by chance it happens to be me, the certificate will go to the second place finisher. Maybe for the Bowl Week we can offer something separate as well just to give those who have been out of the running for a while a second chance.
