2017 PICK'EM KICKOFF COMPETITION

Post by AGinNEIowa » August 3rd, 2017, 9:17 pm

Pick’em Kick-Off Competition

All 75 picks and tiebreakers are due before fifth kick-off, Friday 01 Sept 7:00 pm MDT.

Preferred Entry method - Enter your Picks on GOOGLE DOCS, KICKOFF PICK'EM. (Games entered here will periodically be transferred to my official spreadsheet for tracking purposes. If you make changes before the deadline, please notify me via PM on this website, so you get credit for the changes)

Secondary Entry method - reply to this thread with each game picked (either retype game # and team - or copy/paste the games and bold the winner - prefer bold, rather than just colors, easier to read when doing 75 games at a time).

I think I have noted all of the neutral-site games.

PLEASE NOTE THERE ARE 3 Games which kickoff one week early, Saturday 26 August. I will leave the entries open until USU's kickoff - which is game 5, but anything submitted after a game's KICKOFF will be scored as an incorrect pick.

Rankings are the Coaches Poll, 3 August 2017 - known times noted as MT

Example - if you think Ohio State and Southern Cal will enter the Conference Championship weekend as the only 2 undefeated teams, then your Tiebreaker could look something like this (since 1976, only 5 teams ranked as the AP preseason #1 have finished #1 - the last one was Southern California in 2004)
1- Florida State - 2
2- Ohio State- 0
3- Oklahoma- 2
4- Southern Cal- 0
5- Alabama- 1
6- Clemson - 1
7- USU- 375 (2009 was 349, 2010 was 264, 2011 was 414, 2012 was 413, 2013 was 431, 2014 was 390, 2015 was 356, 2016 was 287)

Thanks so much for always organizing this and the other games, one of my favorite things about the board even if I forget to make picks in the weekly one sometimes.

Just a heads up, I think the Neutral Site game locations are off. IE, it's showing South Florida vs SJSU in Denver.
