    Weekly College Football Pick'ems

    With all that is going on, I completely forgot about starting this up for the college football season. And we're going into week 3 (lol). I know some conferences either aren't playing, or have yet to make a final determination ... SEC comes back next week, and the B1G late next month .... but if there is the interest, let it be known here, I'll start one up for next week.

    GAC picks games each week (all Big Ten games and then about same number of non B10 games) and you pick games against the spread. He keeps standings. It's all just for fun, no money thankfully.

    Here is last years so you can look for yourself:

    Here's a link to last year's thread. My first post pretty much explains how it works. We've been doing it for several years on here. Done strictly for the fun and enjoyment. And IMO, right now, we all could use a positive distraction LOL

    Nice try! There's no schools in WV! LMAO On a serious note ... I'm pretty diverse in my scheduling, utlizing ALL conferences, not just the Power 5. I look primarily at matchup and competiveness. I only utlize point spreads if it's an uneven matchup, posibly a blow out.

    I'll have the schedule out this afternoon ..... after golf. First things first!

    Re: Weekly College Football Pick'ems

    I apologize for not having this up yesterday. All I'm gonna say is that it was a long day (LOL). We obviously can't do the B1G until it starts, so we'll just go with "Weekly National Games" for now.

    There will be a mixture of games played two ways ... 1) straight up (simply pick winner or loser), and 2) point spread. In order to particpate, one must play the entire weekly schedule. Those games designated as "point spread" games will have the spread in bold parentheses next to the favored team forfeiting points. And I will add .5 to any point spread that is a whole number in order to avoid ties.

    When you post your weekly picks, please proof-read to make sure you've made (highlighted, etc) your picks for all games. We try to be alert on here and help each other out (PM, etc) when someone omits making a pick for a game. But it's still your responsibility. If you forget to make a pick for a game(s), and don't make the necessary correction on here prior to that game - it will go down as a loss.

    But this is entirely for fun and enjoyment.
