CFB Pick 7 Rules

This thread is for the rules or questions/answers pertaining to the rules of the contests. All other topics will be moved away from this thread. In this section there will also be a discussion thread, a standings thread, a confirmed entries thread (when paid) and the weekly pick threads where the odds and picks will be posted each week.

DEADLINE CHANGE FROM PREVIOUS YEARS
SATURDAY, 12:00pm EST

This is a 200 CFB buy-in contest.




All odds will be posted on Thursday’s in the late afternoon.Thursday, Friday, Saturday's + if any Sunday/Monday CFB Games will be used. All 7 games must be posted together

There are several payment options but do not assume it’s same info as last year. We will accept payments from bitcoin, Zelle, Square Cash, PP, bank wires and checks (give yourself time). I will do my best to pay out the way paid but not always possible. Payouts for all buy-in contests will be paid out same time at the end of the football season after the NFL last week of reg season unless contest includes bowl games or NFL playoffs then will be paid after SB or National Championship respectively

To discuss payment arrangements post me a PM and we can discuss several ways for you to get in or do it the way you have recently. Please give yourself time. Other & past methods are available. [B]Please confirm with me first. MOST Other methods we've done in the past will still be allowed except NO VENMO. Get with me early - don't wait until the deadline. Just check with me first.


Rules

Pick 7 CFB games per week.

All odds will be posted by Thursday each week

Please be clear with your post. Include the full team with rotation number as listed with the odds posted. Please avoid abbreviations

Please remember this is a money contest and we want everyone paying attention and following rules to make things as fair as possible.

Scoring will be updated in the standings each week.


One point for each win, 1/2 for ties, 0 for loss


Prizes

Start Week would be the week of 8/30-9/3
End Week would we week of conference championships which I believe is December 1st week. I will confirm this exact date by the time contest starts. I believe 12/8 is just Army/Navy so I just need to verify those Conf championships are on 12/1. Will clarify and post here and week 1 thread

Deadline to enter contest would be Saturday September 1st before Noon EST. Noon, that Saturday is the deadline to make picks so enter before that time. Post me message in PM forum for more details and discuss more info. Just try to avoid waiting to last minute

No, Not in this contest. All of the 7 picks must be entered at same time. We did change it in the NFL P5 to allow it and maybe in the future we will do the same here but as of now we are going to leave as written.

Hate that ASC. Hope all is ok now. Pretty sure you just get 0 points for the week. Hell not much worse that me last week. I made my picks and only got 1. Just need a big week to even things out. Hang in and good luck.

It does stink and mark is correct. You just get 0. It is early enough where it is possible to come back from it.

Thank you for handling it like a gentleman and hope the family is okay.

Sorry to hear ASC, I've graded this for a while and you are never out of this. Shoot for .500, then .550. etc... It's been done, heck Briefcase missed a pick this year and is doing well.

Yeah any obvious typo of a line - scores and odds final odds will be used.

Not talking about a line that moves a lot in your favor but an obvious mistake or typo

People need to relax, take a couple breaths, and verify their picks.
It isn't even close some weeks.
Not picking on SMac, just pointing even they cannot catch all their mistakes.

One day I'm going to miss something.............

Yea I honestly don’t put much effort in to making sure the lines are right and that’s my apology. I usually try and do it really fast when I’m not busy because I work OT in Saturday’s a lot. My bad man

Sure it's simple, but this simpleton can't figure out these #s. (in bold)

Example:
BrCase #2 = (2-1)(3-4)(9-3)(9-2-1)(1)
Colloid #2 = (4-3)(2-3)(4-4)(13-1-1)

These are going away, no worries about them.
It is the contestants records.

A little further down it says that conference championships are the final week so i believe we have 2 more weeks.
