    Just throwing out another idea. gonna test it out in NCAA 11 to see if its worth keeping or dumping for next year.

    my thoughts...
    I predict the winner by spread and total points. People take the winner with spread or loser to cover the spread or win outright. also they take the over/under on the game total points. Obviously, this isnt real so there are not enough historic trends to really give an accurate prediction of game results, so I will just be going off performance assumptions

    EX.
    Colorade State @ Utah
    Spread: CSU +6.5
    Over/Under: 60.5

    so I made the spread 6.5 so you can pick CSU to win by 7 or more, or Utah to lose by 6 or less (a utah win counts as losing by less then 6)
    I made the over under 60.5 so if the teams combine for more then 61 points, thats the over. pretty simple stuff

    I think I (or we) can get spreads up weekly on advance. people can just reply with their picks. dont think we can keep money totals but we can keep a standings or something. Can't force anyone to be involved. I think if we get spreads up just before advance, it should give some time befor most of the games get played to check it out. Even if you dont place your picks, you can still see what I (or we) predict.

    thoughts...?

    We could try it out next season, how about winner each season gets an "Untouchable Recruit" aka no other users may offer that recruit he declares the next season.

    so... I missed the advance, gonna try and do this week here, but I will probably be creating a thread for each week. I'll just try this out to see how close i can be
    I was gonna give air force an 9.5 spread and they covered

    New Mexico @ BYU
    BYU: + 8.5
    O/U: 55.5

    Wyoming @ TCU
    TCU: + 4.5
    O/U 37.5

    FAU @ UNLV
    UNLV: +16.5
    O/U: 48.5

    NCSU @ Utah
    Utah: +6.5
    O/U: 60.5

    feel free to predict or comment

    UNLV 21
    FAU 7

    I picked FAU to "win" by winning or only losing by 16 or less so I got that right?

    I got the under right I know, 28 combined < 48.5

    Damn i'm not good with this betting stuff... I out to get good or else the recruits will think lowly of me. And yeah i scored at the end cause i finally broke a huge run and it didn't feel sim to just run out of bounds with wide open space in front. And yeah that game sucked. I was stopped at the 40-35 almost every drive and couldn't precision punt or make anything longer than a 42 yard field goal so i have such a bad 4th down conversion rating...

    picking FAU was right because UNLV didnt win by 17, yes. I think the prediction of 17 point win was pretty good. a FG more for UNLV and the spread goes the other way

    I thought against FAU, they would be able to manage more then 21 points but thats always gonna be tricky to predict

    anyway, yes, elk - you got both picks correct. its pretty simple and fun. dont let it affect your gameplay, just do what you do

    Sweetness. I didn't even think about letting it affect my gameplay, and I'd think it'd be pretty lame if that even crossed anyone's mind.

    BYU won a blow out. I had a feeling they would but I dont think I like predicting user v user games as blowouts. anything can happen. momentum is killer.
    looks like the NM offense got shut down so the O/U was way low

    im learning

    yes it was. i showed a lot of my big plays in the previous games that hurt for the final game that played through. Good game played by both and I couldnt capitalize when needed and you did a fantastic job on your goal line D. Good luck the rest of the way.

    well, you win some and lose some.... Time to see someone else claim the title. Both loses, my defense blows ass on the final drive to give up the lead.

    11/12 not bad! I figured UNLV would be a in a 28-24 type game but the defenses played much better than expected, and several drives only resulted in field goals.

    Matchup against MWC leader Wyoming should be a good one. Wyoming shredded my defense last season, hopefully we play better and retain possession of the Golden Boot when we hit the road.

    week 8
    still no games played, not sure if anyone is midgame at the moment but who cares
    so far, I feel Im underestimating user defenses. what happened to the epic shootouts we used to have?

    Air Force @ TCU
    AF: +17.5
    O/U: 45.5

    CSU @ Wyoming
    CSU: +1.5
    O/U: 23.5

    SDSU @ New Mexico
    SDSU: +6.5
    O/U: 31.5

    UNLV @ Utah
    Utah: +3.5
    O/U: 26.5

    I think these predictions could make for some interesting picks
    good luck
