Obviously this was not planned and has never happened before. Figures, that kind of year.

I haven't read the responses. I think the fairest way is the only game I know everyone has available (with the exception of tiebreakers) is the National Championship game. Anyone who picked BC or Boise can come back and pick the NC game as the point value you has assigned to the cancelled game

There is no perfect solution. This is the only thing I can see is being the closest to being fair to most of the entries. I will post a line when available

Guys you need to take a game that you haven't and replace the cancelled game ASAP. If you are out of games, then the NC is probably going to be used.

The worst idea ever is giving people who selected this half the points. If every pick was weighted the same and everyone had to pick that bowl then yes. Gives those a competitive edge, cannot have that in any contest.

You cannot be rewarded, but you cannot have it count against you either.....


Geoff you can grade it if you are worried, you don't have to keep asking like in Bingo. You can also self grade yourself and others I'm sure would follow.

I'll just self grade mine, way easier for all involved

dkp 12-27-2018 05:46 PM

Jack

Your solution sounds good. I had made an alternate pick in between time which I think will be ignored in lieu of your plan. Sound right?

Thanks as always

Yet you still haven't self-graded yourself...............

Always the question, never the solution or answer.

But thanks for the response that you want one of the other 9 to grade this, because you are too busy asking the same questions...........

Geoff777 12-29-2018 08:03 PM

If Jack and everyone in the contest is ok w/it, I'll post the standings for this contest on this Sunday afternoon after today's games are done, Monday night after the NYE games are done, and then Wednesday morning after the Tuesday games are done. I do apologize in advance if I make any mistakes in posting the wrong totals

cook county capper 12-30-2018 08:25 AM

Geoff if you can grade it from here I set it up for you, that is awesome of you.
Everyone has 325 points, I have it by points lost for now as they control their destiny if they win out. Parenthesis is points remaining. GL to Everyone! Happy New Year!

Not that anybody can catch me but I'll take Clemson as my #11 replacement pick for the Boise/BC game.

Thanks for the contest and thanks for the scoring of it.

Congrats DKP!

What's the line we're using for the game?

Thanks for the kind words about the scoring of it but the credit for how this was scored should be given to CCC for it as CCC showed me how it was done.

I'm unsure what the line will be for that game for this contest but I'm sure Jack will let us know soon about it,

I think you're the only one that needs to make a pick. Jack usually uses scores and odds. If you're okay we can just agree to use the current line which is:

Alabama -5

xraolibx 01-06-2019 10:27 AM

Buli:

Good point. And so, in that case, I'll take Bama -5.
