    Thanks to the generous volunteering of time by Beach Runner and cnestg8r and by popular demand, the picking contest is back in 2011! So far as I know the format will be the same as it has been in years past-I will look for guidelines to be announced by the aformentioned Gator fans soon. Hard to believe this will be year five! Wow! As a reminder, please, we all know half the fun of football is razzing the opponents regarding their shortcomings and expanding team rap sheets-but please try to keep that activity in the NCAA Battlezone thread and keep the picking thread mostly about picking, although discussion regarding picks and performance does add to the picking thread, in my opinion.

    With that said, get ready and keep an eye on this thread for the game to hatch! I'm hoping for another great year of SOWAL football funn! GEAUX (insert your team name here)!:cool:



    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:

    Thanks, Skunky. Again, well said. Thanks for the preliminary list. I got a text from cnestg8r at 6:12 AM Monday in AU (3:12 PM CST Sunday). He's working on it.

    Note that a team that is listed with "+ ##" means that team is spotted ## points.

    Each participant from last year is asked to consider inviting a new player to join our merry group.

    As in the past highlight your picks in BOLD.

    Good Luck!

    I have several years of random guessing that disproves this. Only seems to work on bowl games.
