Thread: 2018 official gac pickem!!

  1. #1

    Default 2018 official gac pickem!!

    LETS GET THIS SEASON STARTED!! FIRST THE RULES: Same as they have been since I started the pickem from pathos! All games must be submitted with the point spread! For example: SAU vs. ECU, SAU by 32!

    Correct Point Spread = 15 Points
    Within 1 = 10 Points
    Within 5 = 5 Points
    Within 10 = 3 points
    COMPLETE BLOWOUT w/none of the above criteria = 1 point!

    NEW for 2018 (BONUS POINTS AVAILABLE!!): I wanted to throw a little twist in for 2018!! Its all easy for us to pick a "Game of the Week" Game, but how about a "UPSET WATCH"!! After last season's crazy mess, this is any week, any given time!! So therefore, if you pick a game, and label it "UPSET WATCH", and that game outcome is true, then I will give an additional 10 points to you at that time!! This is optional, you don't have to label an upset watch, but if youre starting to lag in the standings, why not!! You could leap ahead!!

    Example: ATU @ HU, "UPSET WATCH" ATU by 21!..... ATU wins by 2, you still get 10 points! PLUS your additional points (in this case would just be 1)!!

    [B][/NOW, PLEASE, PLEASE, IN ORDER TO BE COUNTED, PLEASE HAVE SUBMISSIONS IN BY NOON ON THURSDAY 8/30!!B]

    Ok... here is my qualm. And the above is the example. It’s not an upset watch for Mule to pick HU by 14. We’re expected to win at this point. How do we know what an upset is?

    That was my question when this was announced. Who or what determines upset in these early season games? It just seems like an easy way to grab 10 points early.

    OBU by 13 over NWOSU
    SEOSU by 20 over SNU (Upset Watch)
    SAU by 6 over ATU
    SWOSU by 3 over UAM
    ECU by 7 over OKBU
    HSU by 3 over HU

    I'm going to abuse the upset watch feature on here until someone fixes it, so that way it hopefully gets fixed.

    Makes no sense as is, but I ain't tryin' to lose.

    Well the trouble we have are the earlier weeks! Once we get to know what teams are capable of then it should be easier to pick an upset! But if anybody has a better suggestion for it then let me know! Just trying to spice things up!!

    Id say get rid of the upset thing, and maybe pick the game that will have the highest or lowest amount of points scored and if you are right you will get an additional 10 points.

    Get rid of upset and predict total points of game of the week.

    I like the idea of the upset pickem. My suggestion would be for the first half of the season to use the coaches' poll (or use Massey's for the whole season) to determine whether a game is an upset or not. Starting Week 7 (after we have a good idea of how teams are really doing) you could start using the weekly standings to determine an upset.

    I think we should just get rid of the upset pickem the first week and try something different in week 2

    I like the idea of the highest/lowest scoring idea! However, since we already have the predictions with "upset" watches for week 1, we will keep it. but going into week 2 I think we'll use the highest/lowest scoring idea! Thanks mulerider!
