CFB Pick 7 Contest

Wanted to start something before it gets too late.

I do agree with posting lines later in week.
Maybe a bump to $200 a person.

See other sites starting to take a rake for grading too.
I am all for 100% of pots. Teamwork and cooperation helps avoid rakes.

CCC, Just curious, would it make it easier to do pick 5 like NFL or even pick 6? I guess scoring would be easier?

I think we have had 5 CFB contests.
The 1st 3 were a Pick 5.
The last 2 were a Pick 7.

We went to a Pick 7 I believe because we had a lot of posters taking the same games due to big line swings. I think also because there are more CFB games in a week than NFL, we added 2 selections.

It would make scoring easier with less games.

I've always said if we all took 1 week to grade, 1 week to post lines, teamwork, it would really make a difference throughout this site. I felt so bad arguing about that MLB Survivor contest that one season with you. I wanted to get more posters involved with scoring, and it just blew up in my face trying to ignore you know who.

Hey, no worries. It's all good.

I would love to get others involved in stuff like scoring too. The hard part is you will get volunteers, but then you will find out they are not timely, accurate or reliable. It is frustrating because you never know they are any of the above until they screw it up.

I think last year worked out pretty well. Jack posted lines midday on Friday and I think the buy in was $200 which didn't seem to bring any complaints. I sent $100 each for Jack and CCC after I won. I think anyone that places should send something or we could comp the scores entry fee plus tips. CCC does a great job but I would take a week if everyone wants to go that way. Either way looking forward to another great year of capping competition.

Thanks for the tip, I left them all with Jack for now.
I had an idea for that come this football season.

Jack has posted the contest with the new rules, this can get buried.

Hey ccc

I posted little late this year.

I think only msjor change was bowl games.

I think getting so many scorers might be hard but love the idea in general.

Sorry for the delay in general this year. Usually it’s like why I’m posting them so early.

I can’t wait for football. Also I’m all for ideas to make scoring easier.

CCC I think there is two paid entries so far in but many inquiries. It’s only been posted for 5 days so I can get with them. What’s the idea? Post here or me a pm ASAP.

I'm assuming your doing all the bowl games and when will the lines be posted for the games? Also why not a different contest for the bowl games. Tack on another $50 make the entry $250 with $50 from each person going to the Bowl contest.

The idea was using the tip money together, trying to build up standings placings.

Coming in 4th or 5th is tough, can pay out small prizes this way to soften the blow.
