    Forget the 9am deadline. Get the picks in by kickoff today or 1st game Saturday.

    Kitty made us do it.

    I disagree. I'm okay with getting picks in by kickoff for Thursday and Friday games.

    But for Saturday games someone has a distinct advantage if they can watch ESPN SportsCenter on Saturday AM at 8 AM Central/9 AM Eastern. S/he could just forfeit the Thursday game and wait for the latest predictions from the three talking heads.

    Therefore, I think the rules should be amended as follows:

    Rules for the 2009 SoWal Pick'em

    1. The games for each week's SoWal Pick'em will be posted on or before Monday evenings.
    2. The deadlines for posting during the regular season are kickoff time for Thursday or Friday games and 8 AM Central Time for Saturday games.
    3. Anyone who misses a deadline (as defined in #2 above) will forfeit all games to be played or that have been played on that day, as well as all games played on previous days that week.
    4. Once a person posts his/her picks, changes must be made in a new post to include all games, rather than by editing an earlier post, under the same deadline rules as in #2.
    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.

    In her normally thorough characteristic, BR's response is the right on target. I agree with her plan.

    Us, too. We were so confident that GT would win, we left the game at halftime. So we didn't get to see GT almost blow it.:eek:

    Wow...sure were a lot of peeps that missed the deadline yesterday. Just cause I was scared of missing the deadline didn't mean I was looking to get it changed! I followed the rules, shouldn't everyone? :D :wave:

    So close last night to pulling the upset pick :bang:

    I did get it in another contest where you pick with the point spread. Clemson was a 4.5 point underdog.

    Time change

    ESPN College GameDay starts at 9 AM Central, not 8 AM Central. So I made a slight change to the rules:

    Rules for the 2009 SoWal Pick'em

    1. The games for each week's SoWal Pick'em will be posted on or before Monday evenings.
    2. The deadlines for posting during the regular season are kickoff time for Thursday or Friday games and 9 AM Central Time for Saturday games.
    3. Anyone who misses a deadline (as defined in #2 above) will forfeit all games to be played or that have been played on that day, as well as all games played on previous days that week.
    4. Once a person posts his/her picks, changes must be made in a new post (OMIT "to include all games" -- not necessary), rather than by editing an earlier post, under the same deadline rules as in #2.
    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.

    So far at this moment in time, for the week Lady D is winning, then Skunky and Fulmer4Senate are in second.

    After the noon games, Miss Kitty, TooFarTampa, bamabeachbum, and cp are the week's winners.

    Overall for this season's pick'ems, bamabeachbum, Shallowsnole, and reddog are the winners after the noon games.
