    Ok college football fans, it's almost that time of year again. For those that have not already commented on the other thread that they are in you can do so here. All are welcome to play. This year Iris and I are corroborating together picking the games each week. Here are the rules for this years pick'em, these 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. (See #10 below)
    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. For some games that are of great interest, but in which one team has a lopsided advantage, points may be added to the underdog's score by the person choosing the slate of games each week.
    6. Each correct pick earns one point.
    7. The winner of the SoWal Pick'em will be the person who has the most points, not the highest percentage of correct picks.
    8. 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.
    9. 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.
    10. The 9 a.m. CST/CDT deadline for posting your picks of course is for when all games are only Saturday games. If there should be a game thrown into the picks on Thursday night as there has been at times the picks need to be posted by 6 p.m. CST/CDT that day unless the game is earlier then they will need to be posted before the earlier start time, otherwise, that point will not count for you if the game is already in progress.

    I am in the process of working on the final slate of games for week 1 and will post these tomorrow, even though the rules show no later than Monday evening. My husband and I won't be where I can post picks on Sunday or Monday so with a Thursday night game thrown in I am doing it earlier for that reason. Otherwise, it will be on Mondays.
