2010 College Football Pick'em Pool

Unread postby swerb » Sun Aug 22, 2010 10:17 am

Created a 2010 College Football Pointspread Pick Em Pool on Yahoo. Real easy, each week just go on and pick all the week's most notable games against the spread. Can set it up where it emails you out a reminder each week. Can make/change picks up until 5 min before the start of each game. Most total wins at the end of the season is the winner.

$100 entry fee ... can PayPal me $$$ or send me a check. 100% of entry fee paid back out in prize $$$. Once we see how many players we have ... we'll figure out how many places to pay.

Pipe and I are combining for an entry.
We're in. You have my address to send the prize pool. I'll take care care of paying out Lead.

I guess for appearance sake you could wait til the contest ends. ;-) ;) :wink:

NFL Pick Em Pool I've been in for years, also on Yahoo ... for anyone interested:

You have been invited to join ejg53's Private Group in Yahoo! Sports Pro Football Pick'em.

http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/pickem

In order to join the group, just go to Pro Football Pick'em, and click the "Join Group" button. From there, enter the following information...

Group ID#: 12698
Password: browns

The commissioner of this group has sent the following note:
--------------------------------------------------------
Let me know if you or anyone else is interested in …… I’d prefer everyone to pay for the year up front (please). Feel free to pass this on

Ok, I have organized the Pro Football Pool. I have used Yahoo’s Pro Pick’em to organize it and keep track of everything ….same as last year.

There are 17 weeks. Cost is $5 per week,( $85 for the season) $4 per week goes to the weekly pot and $1 per week goes to the yearly pot. If you pay by the week, the cost is $6 per week.

The weekly winner will be decided by the most correct picks. With appropriate tie-breakers ( see rules online). For the year-end pot, the most correct picks will win... The top 3 places will be paid 70%, 20%, 10%....your 3 lowest scores will be dropped. So if you have a bad week or miss a week you still have a chance.

Picks are due 5 minutes before EACH game.

You can pay by the week ($6), or send all of the money (17*$5=$85)ahead of time. For out of towners, it may be best to pay some or all ahead of time. You can send it to : Ed Gaio, PO Box16, Hammondsport, NY 14840

Please send me your mailing address as well. That way I can get winnings out timely.

Please pass this on to anyone who may be interested.

Rich- do you win and lose based on the final line or the line at the time you lock down your picks?
