    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. Cnest8gr is again posting the picks this year.

    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. REVISED: Saturday picks are due before the scheduled game time (not kickoff time) of the first Saturday game which is usually 11 a.m. CST/CDT. If your picks are submitted late on Saturday, you will forfeit all games for which the scheduled time is prior to when you submit your picks. For Thursday/Friday night games the picks need to be posted before the scheduled game time (not kickoff time) of the first game which is usually 6 p.m. CST/CDT unless the game time is earlier, in which case they will need to be posted before the earlier start time. Just as on Saturday, you will forfeit all games for which the scheduled time is prior to when you submit your picks.

    Week 1 will be a little different since the UF/Miami game is one week early. So Saturday, 8/24 is the first game and the balance follow through Saturday, 8/31.
    Best of luck, draw in as many newbies as you can.

    You can go ahead and just pick Florida/Miami and wait on the rest that are next week.

    Are there any stakes? Bragging rights? Drinks at a local place of ill repute?

    Welcome to the Pick'Ems! If we're in town, we could go to a sports bar and watch games. Except for Gator games. cnestg8r and I stay at our beach cottage and totally focus on the game. Well, unless the Gators start embarrassing us.

    I'm just ready to be at the beach. The beach and college football. Nothing better.

    No cost to join. Each week a post of usually 15 games are given (see example post #2). Most people copy the list and "bold" their selections. Reading the rules of the first post will answer most of your questions. It's all for fun. Hope to see you join.
