    The time has come. Let's all encourage all of the past players and recruit as many new players. Beach Runner will post the usual rules for entry, scoring, and grand prizes!

    The first few and last few this week should be easy. The middle will be more challenging. Note there are games starting 30-Aug (Thursday) and continuing Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Some times may change and some games are on "neutral" sites.

    Good pickings...

    Thanks CnestGATOR!!! Really appreciate you doing this. Question - when do picks have to be in?
    Should we maybe try to leave out Thur games in the future to give folks extra time and make it simpler for you? Whatever you think best.

    As usual folks, try to keep most of the team smack talk at http://www.sowal.com/bb/showthread.php/26634-Ncaa-battlezone

    I'm not understanding this. Maybe its because I'm viewing this on my phone, but I don't see where to enter picks

    Attyhood, the preferred way to pick a team is to highlight the one you think will win in each game. If you can't do that on a phone, then you can delete the one you think will lose and leave the one you think will win.

    Well, I can't believe it is this time of year again. I have been so busy with two kids, college, and juggling work that I almost forgot about football. ALMOST. Lol. Anyway, here I am. I will try my best to get my picks in on time. How is everyone doing?

    Near the ATL and in SoWal as often as possible
    The rules are the same as last year:

    1. The games for each week's SoWal Pick'em will be posted on or before Monday evenings
    2. The deadline for making your pick for any game is 9 AM Central Time on date of that game.
    3. Anyone who misses the deadline (as defined in #2 above) will forfeit all games not picked for that date.
    4. Any changes after a pick is made must appear in a new post, not in an edited prior post, and by 9 AM Central Time for the date of the game for which your pick is changed. Failure to do this will result in your change being invalid.
    5. Each correct pick earns one point.
    6. The winner of the SoWal Pick'em will be the person who has the most points, not the highest percentage of correct picks.
    7. Bonus questions may be included later in the season in case a tie-breaker is needed. The points from these questions will not be added to a picker's total points for the season.
    8. Leaders for each week, for the regular season, and for the bowl games will be recognized. However, the winner of the SoWal Pick'em will be the person with the most wins for the season, including bowl games.

    Happy picking!:wave:
